  • Best Sunday Brunch in Lawrence
    Foodie
    Dined on 9/7/2014
    I took out-of-town guests to Ten at The Eldridge for Brunch to start our "tour" of historic Lawrence and the KU campus. They were blown away! Said they never imagined they would enjoy the experience anywhere close to as much as they did. They raved about the food: the selection of items on the buffet, the quality and freshness of the food; the atmosphere of the restaurant, the beauty of the hotel lobby, and the attention and service of the staff. I had dined here before and already had experienced Ten. I will always return to Ten for Sunday Brunch. It is the best in Lawrence. My guests also enjoyed learning about the history of The Eldridge. What a great way to start our "tour."

    A friend of mine and I went here for Sunday brunch recently and were blown away. The buffet is well stocked and the food is very good and fresh. They have unlimited shrimp cocktails, so the place made no money off of us. The fee included a drink (mimosa or coffee), and they offer a 10% discount to KU students. Definitely going back. Also a great place to take your parents.

    Great ambience. Great service. Great view of the Busker passers-by. Filet mignon was over done. Overall impression was that the food has slipped from the last time we were here. I hope they bring it back - it's a great place overall.

    My experience at Ten was fantastic. I was here on business travel with a co-worker, so we spilit both an appetizer and a dessert and both had entrees and drinks. Everything was fantastic and the customer service was phenomonal. I would highly recommend Ten to anyone who finds themselves in Lawrence, KS.

    Ate here on a Monday night, not crowded, service very good. Food although good-definately not great. Desserts were bad-cremebrulee burnt and apple pie rather tasteless. With the pricing I expected steakhouse quality-it doesn't compare to any of the big steakhouses. No drinks, no appetisers, daughter got a pasta dish and bill with tip $100. Disappointing.

    We were looking forward to a quiet, enjoyable dinner after a day of travel. The food was food service quality. Nothing appeared to be freshly prepared by a knowledgable chef. Our waitress was pleasant however the courses were served in a rushed manner. This dinner for 2 was certainly not worth the $100 it cost.

    What a great venue for a quiet and delicious lunch! If you go to Lawrence you must visit the Eldridge Hotel and as you enter the hotel you might as well have a cocktail in the bar and then move over to TEN for a bite to eat. In addition to a great meal this is clearly a favorite with the leadership in Lawrence. As we sat and had our lunch I thought of the history of people that have come through the front door to this historic place. We will be back!

    The reservation was waiting and my special request for seating was noted and honored. Wait staff were efficient and did not hover.The lunch special of soup and salad was a huge hit. The classic Reuben was tasty. The crowds on Mass St made the window seating delightful. Even large groups near by were not an intrusion. Highly recommend and will meet lots of friends here.

    The Eldridge Hotel is a beautiful classic old hotel,even if you don't eat at the restaurant or bar, you should step inside and take a look. We ate on the bar side and had a great time. They serve a terrific milk stout on tap which you don't often find. The food was fine but our waiter definitely got a 10. Everyone in our party of seven commented on his perfect timing, unintrusiveness, and friendly personality. If I am ever in Lawrence again I would go back. Hats off to good service.

    We booked the reservation for Brunch based on the online recommendations and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious. The restaurant was busy but it did not effect the service we recieved. Amanda recommended that if we wanted an omelet that she would send our order directly to the kitchen in order to avoid the line at the omelet station. We took her up on the offer and she delivered our omelets directly to our table. Lots of choices and all for a reasonable price. Defintely will return again when we visit Lawrence.

    I met a friend for lunch. We sat at a corner table overlooking Massachusetts Street. We were seated as soon as we arrived. Our server appeared right away to take our drink orders. He stopped back a few times to take our lunch order, but we were too busy talking to even look at the menu right away. The server was very pleasant and said he's check back with us. He did not rush us at all. Once we ordered, the food came out prepared exactly as we had ordered. I had a salad and half sandwich. The Sunflower Salad was delicious. The chicken salad sandwich was even better. My friend had a cheeseburger with fries that she said was great. Her portion was so large, that she ended up taking some home.

    It's been a few years since we dined at TEN. I'm glad we went back. My husband had the osso bucco and said it was one of the best meals he'd ever had. My filet with the cabernet cream sauce was cooked to perfection and tender as could be. Our waitress forgot the asparagus we ordered, but got it to us quickly when we inquired. I expected a deeper wine list, but you could certainly find something you'd like. Try the Jayhawker Juice martini for a fresh summer drink.
