Diner Reviews
  • "The service was poor, slow. Only good thing was the mimosas as it took forever to get our food. Was sadly disappointed. "

  • "We ate at the restaurant because we were going to DOG1 at the Mayne Stage - great bluegrass. It was Trivia night; which we didn't know at time of reservation. Ended sitting at the smallest table; cramped corner. It filled up fast; service was slow. i enjoyed my sandwich - pot roast…very good. Maybe a bad night; would go back sit at a different table."

  • "Act One is the perfect place to eat before or after a Mayne Stage performance. Quality and convenience are great. It's pub grub, but nice pub grub. Good craft beer selection, though not as good as a specialty place. Friendly if hurried staff. Been there many times and have never been disappointed. Definitely the best place in the neighborhood, though there's not much competition."

  • "Had a good meal before a show at Mayne Stage. Chicken Pot pie was more like a chicken stew with a puff pastry on top, lots of vegetables in it. Burgers also were good."

  • "On Saturdays and Sundays, you can get an entree and bottomless Bloody Marys, mimosas, or beermosas for $20 from 11-3. I went there with a group of friends, 11 people total. We were there for 4 hours drinking. No one got mad at us and they kept bringing the drinks.the refills were fast and our server was so sweet. The breakfast was delicious and the drinks were strong! My husband and I live around the corner and this is the place we frequent most in Roger's Park."

  • "My wife and I chose to visit Act One because we were attending a nearby show and the theatre recommended it to us. We ordered the loaded potato skins as our appetizer. The portions were adequate, but the potato skins weren't exactly loaded. Plenty of potato was left uncovered and the potatoes were a bit dry. My wife ordered veggie wraps with a house salad. The salad had a good variety of vegetables and my wife had a house vinaigrette which was a bit sweet for her liking. Her veggie wraps were outstanding though and she was quite satisfied. I had the special chicken breast with mashed potatoes and a vegetable medley as my side. Every part of my meal was delicious. We finished with a "Sonic limeade" for dessert which was fabulous!"

  • "We went to Act One for a concert. Dined before the show. Servers were overwhelmed with the number of tables and therefore, the "Slow Rush". Bartender was slow too but, I sure this was due to the number of people that arrived at around the same time. Food was good."

  • "Didn't have wine or a drink; I am sure there are great choices as the menu is varied with great choices. Don't know about lunch because we were there late afternoon early evening. What I do know is the service is attentive but relaxed. It was a bit too noisy to chat---we are seniors and have hearing issues. But we liked the youthful vive."
