    I have eaten several times at Kincaid's. This was the most disappointing experience I have had. Lettuce on my salad was wilted and brown on the edges. Two of my guests had the Cobb salad. It was mostly lettuce with very little of the additions to make it a Cobb salad. The kitchen needs to be aware of the condition of lettuce and also re-think the ingredients in the Cobb salad.

    All I need to say is they acknowledged us when we came in and gave us a card with mr & mrs on it congratulating us. Our table was small and to our liking where we could have a conversation, and look out into their outdoor court yard. Our waiter was attentive, made suggestions, humorous, our food was delicious and they gave us a dessert on the house. It was very Special!

    We celebrated our third wedding anniversary and took advantage of Kincaid's Date Night menu. A tremendous bargain with a bottle of wine we knew and liked, nice entree choice selection – well prepared – and a dessert to share. Recommend the key lime pie. Above all the service was superb. Thank you, Kelly.

    I took my wife out for a belated birthday dinner to Kincaids based on a friends recommendation. The service was great! Our server apologized up front that the kitchen was a bit behind. We still ended up getting our food in 20 minutes. I ordered the prime rib and my wife ordered the parmesan crusted halibut. The prime rib was very good, and the halibut was amazing! Our server surprised us with crème brule, which was incredibly tasty. I have never had it and was hesitant to try it. I ended up eating half of it. Overall fantastic experience and we look forward to going back.

    We went to have my wife's last meal before surgery (double knee replacement) her next meal was broth 24 hours later. My wife's meal was quite disappointing-it was halibut that had been drenched in a broth. This makes us think twice about returning. We really don't understand what the chef was drinking when he made this entre. The good news was the surgery went well the next day.

    I ordered the Trio special , and really liked the prawns and the salmon. However, since I'm not a fan of "smoked" flavor, I didn't care for the filet. Sarah was so sweet and offered to replace the steak with some prime rib. It was very good. The atmosphere , and service, as usual, were wonderful. We always love to go to Kincaid's. Because I am Gluten Sensitive, I ordered some fresh strawberries with whipping cream and hot fudge. It was excellent. I would have loved to have the Halibut, but can't eat breadcrumbs. Maybe some day the chef will try to make it with gluten free flour and breadcrumbs. My significant other , loved it, as well as the chocolate dessert he ordered.

    I took my husband to Kincaid's for his birthday. We ordered a drink and a glass of wine before dinner. They have a good bourbon selection and a very nice wine list. Our server, Jay, was amazing. He recommended food choices based on our conversation and was spot on! The special that night was asiago halibut over smashed potatoes and asparagus that was absolutely terrific. I will definitely go back.

    Everything was wonderful, friendly service, Best steak I ever had. It was perfect fit for our anniversary date. Thank you for making this special. The only bad thing was the use of garlic was a little over powering, not during the meal, but 3 hours later it was still with us and in a way that a simple breath mint could not fix. I think it may of been the garlic butter on the bread. but not sure. We will be back.

The staff greeted us upon arrival and immediately wished my father-in-law a happy birthday. Nice touch!

    We had a reservation for 4 at 7:00 but our table was not ready when we arrived. When we were finally seated, we discovered little shards of glass all over the table. When we were finally able to our waiter's attention, it was cleaned up promptly. Service was pretty slow overall. It seemed they were understaffed on the holiday weekend. The food was very good. We will return.

Our server was there when we needed her but did not hang around when not needed. Our dinners were generous and delicious. At the end of our meal we were given a complementary crème brûléet, which was lovely. We look forward to dining at Kincaid's again very soon.

    Great solid experience all around. Inventive dishes (pesto crusted walleye with heirloom tomato risotto, crab cakes with Asian style garnishes) well executed. Attentive, interactive and very helpful service, our server was willing to go above and beyond. Setting is relaxing and beautiful. Truly the only complaint was the small size of the walleye portion - but the wonderful flavors of the accompaniments on the plate made up for that.

    We would never ever come back, we drove 500 miles because it was highly recommended, and we ended up paying for our 2 drinks, and walked across the street to a place called, PARMA'S. They took us in, and they were packed, and we were immediately waited on, we had a great time, and would go back to PARMA'S IN A HEARTBEAT. not ever to a broken heart as presented by Kincaid's. Never! Keith P. Besch and Erin, my dear Sweetheart of 10 years, we did our Romantic Evening across the street.. Thanks for listening, KB & E

I have had their Short Ribs which are excellent. This time I ordered the pork chop with garlic mashed potatoes. Well seasoned and prepared. The server let us sample a couple Champaign's before purchasing which was very nice. Their dirty martini's are excellent too.

    Lunch was solid. If I had a recommendation it would be for a couple options that are less expensive, in case someone wants to have a more upscale lunch without spending a lot of money. I didn't think we splurged, and after tip I had spent nearly $50 (for 2). Getting out at $30 didn't seem feasible. But, still, a good meal.

We had the prime rib on the date night menu ($60) and our grand daughter had a kid's meal consisting of oranges and strawberries, pasta with red sauce, lemonade, and a hot fudge sunday ($9). The server was super helpful and very kind to our grand daughter. Will definitely be back.

    My two friends and I came here on a whim and enjoyed ourselves very much. They were from Baltimore, staying nearby; I'm from St. Paul. I've eaten at other Kincaid restaurants so knew the food would be good. We really liked the ambiance and our waiter (Carl) was so friendly, thoughtful and helpful and made us very comfortable. I don't know about outdoor dining since we didn't do that; or the late-night or bar scene stuff since I'm past that age. I'd definitely come for a special occasion.
