  • Beet Burger

    We came during brunch on Sunday wanting to try the famed Beet Burger, only during brunch all they serve is, well, brunch. HOWEVER, after asking about the beet burger and seeing how excited we were, our waiter snuck off to the kitchen to see it it were possible to cook up 2 special order beet burgers (we didn't ask for this either). We were very excited when she came back to inform us that the chef would make 2 beet burgers for us, but not to tell anyone :) The food was excellent, the service was amazing, and the atmosphere couldn't have been better. 10/10

    My wife and my daughter and I gave N&B's a try for the Sunday Brunch buffet. Nice selection with a few of the usual items - scrambled eggs, sausage links, bacon, biscuits, grits - and a few that were a bit more unusual including a huge tray of oysters, large shrimp, meatloaf squares and a good few things made with sweet potatoes. I particularly enjoyed the shrimp (with a New Orleans remoulade, but would have preferred a classic cocktail sauce) and the sweet potato au gratin. Sliced salmon was good too, but I didn't really feel like waiting for the toaster to toast. Service was okay with a waiter who refilled Diet Coke often but coffee not as much. Maybe disappointed that we didn't go all in for the refillable mimosas or bloody marys?

    I ordered the deviled eggs and pan roasted chicken, my husband ordered the meatloaf. The chicken came out extremely dry and lacking any flavor therefore ended up not eating it all. The manager did a great job of addressing and removed the plate from our ticket.

    They should really reprint their menu because everything I inquired about had a key ingredient change. Service was extremely slow and there were barely any customers - don't know what that was about.

    Decided to try Nan and Byron's after hearing about the new menu options, have been in the past and loved the food. As suspected, the new menu did not disappoint. Had the new Tuna with Tofu, wow! This place does tofu the right way, with wasabi encrusted peas and the tuna on top. This hit the spot! Also tried the scallops with sweet potatoes, and couldn't get enough. The scallops were cooked perfectly and the sweet potatos with the Brussel sprouts on the side were a perfect combination. Both plates were practically licked clean. Happy to see new steaks and chops added to the menu also, have to return to try more new items.

    Met up with some old friends for a Sat night dinner. Wonderful ambience as we sat outside with the heaters glowing, so noise level was not overwhelming. Our server was helpful without being pesky. I had the beet burger after reading food reviews on Urban Spoon. It did not disappoint. The bartender was also helpful with the wine selection. Will be back!

    Great atmosphere and vibe. However, I have eaten here twice for dinner and both times was very disappointed. The first time, I had the salad, with dry chicken. The tomato soup was WAY TOO salty and tasted like tomato paste. The meatloaf was not very good and left a very "heavy" feeling on your stomach at the end of the night. The wine pours were minimal and the waitress took my wine glass away with wine in it before even asking if I was through. This restaurant has such great atmosphere and ambiance. Great for big parties and special occasions, but due to the sub par food and stingy wine pours I will not be returning. Shame.

    Great menu selection, food was very good, nice decor, and service was excellent. Fun spot to dine. Only two negative comments here. It was SOO loud in the dining area, we had to shout to speak with each other. I wish we would have chosen to eat in the bar which seemed much quieter (at 8pm) on a Saturday evening. There's a patio which was also quieter, but needs some ambiance/character. That orange safety light is kind of pitiful. How about some potted plants with some twinkle lights to soften the area up a bit? I'd definitely go back again because the food and service was excellent, but would probably eat in the bar.

    N&B's would be fine on a Friday night for a group of friends, but for date night with my wife the noise level makes it unsuitable. No fun shouting across a small table. Our seating was in the middle of the dining room and both my wife and I were bumped/jostled more than once by the busy waitstaff.

    The setting was acceptable the parking virtually non existent. Maybe the cocktails are better. The give you popcorn instead of bread which is different yet no toothpicks you know how popcorn can stay with you long after the last kernel. The braised kale was gritty suggesting they didn't rinse the leaves I had the salmon which was dry and a side of Mac n cheese which tasted of more processed and less than the suggested ingredients.

    I chose this restaurant on the strength of Yelp comments. The food was very good- the descriptions are very simple and the ingredients are innovative. I absolutely loved the cocktails I had- both bourbon based and both packed with flavor. The service was good, though it was sometimes hard to communicate because the restaurant is insanely loud. I was catching up with friends I had not seen in over a year and could not hear most of what was said. While the decor is beautiful, the materials they chose probably amplify sound more than absorb it.

    Everytime I've been to Nan and Byron's the food and the service have been top notch. The servers are very knowledgable and are excited by the menu. If you go with a group, it can be tough to have a conversation with more than one or two people as the restaurant gets pretty noisy. Other than that, I'd recommend it to anyone and everyone and look forward to returning soon!

    We had dinner with friends who were visiting and decided on Nan & Byron's because it seemed to be "kid friendly" (we had a 9 and 12 year old in our party). The kids had a great time as did the adults. It was very busy and quite loud, but in a good way. The menu is eclectic and varied...and since we had a vegetarian in the group, the options on the menu worked out perfectly. The food was really good..except my one observation is that everything seemed a bit salty to everyone (including the kids who remarked on it!). Granted, we don't cook with salt or use salt on our food, so we may not be the norm, but I prefer to be able to adjust the level of saltiness on my food. Otherwise, everything was great.

    I met a group of my girlfriends for dinner this week. The food was wonderful, drinks were outstanding. Our waitress was very friendly but by the time the bill came, she completely messed it up. Had to void our cards, run again and then they were still wrong. It was fine the first time, but after a few mistakes it got a little frustrating. Maybe they are still working out a few things?

    I have never posted a complaint online about a restaurant but we decided to try something new for our ten year anniversary and the food at this place was just disgusting. The tacos were doused in so much cumin they literally tasted of old shoes. My husbands burger was so charred he almost broke a tooth biting into it. Waste of $50! The service was good but too bad you can't eat the service !

    Took my visiting parents last Friday night for dinner. I have already take them to 5Church, which they loved, so I thought Nan and Byron's was something they needed to try. It was another great meal with excellent service, as usual. We started with the smoked poblano dip and deviled eggs. The dip is something I get every time I come, and it is so addicting. Deviled eggs were good too, liked the slight hint of truffle oil. Entrees ordered this time around included the meatloaf, salmon, tofu, and cobb salad, which was a nice dinner-sized portion. Rave reviews all around for the food and service. Great cocktails, too! Looking forward to my next visit.

    They do have a brunch buffet. But it is $21. And they don't have a wide selection if you don't want the buffet. They only have egg selections. And I can't eat eggs...so I opted for a burger without the egg.

    My friends from work and I celebrated my birthday this week and I chose N&B because the diversity of the menu allowed for a couple of special diet folks to eat and have several options - menu offers a lighter fare but with rich flavors - excellently prepared. I have eaten brunch here too and my husband and I absolutely loved it. Would drive from Concord again in a heartbeat!
