    Slow service even being only half full. The roast beef sliders, according to the menu, were to be rare. The roast beef was well done and tasteless. I would have told my server but I could not find her. My wife's wine glass stayed empty through dinner as the server was hard to locate. The only time she was truly attentive was when she brought the check.

    I was taken to Todd English Pub for my birthday and I couldn't have been more pleased with the atmosphere, the great service and the exceptional food. I enjoyed the New England Style Lobster Rolls, and had probably the best Sour Apple Martini that I have ever had.

    This is a great place for a group of friends getting together to enjoy a night out, but not a romantic place for a date or to relax and unwind. It's very loud and sometimes you have to scream to talk to your date or be heard. Food and service excellent. Would go back again but not on a date.

    While the food was good, it was overwhelmingly loud because of the live music. We spoke to our server and ultimately a manager, who admitted that this is a real problem on certain nights. The musicians refused to turn down their sound system to a reasonable level. I would return only if I were dining outside or there were no live music.

    I made reservations for 4. We had 3 other colleagues join us for dinner before the reservation. The restaurant was great at accomodating our party at two tables next to each other. We really did appreciate it. The food was good. The food for the two tables came out about 15 min apart. One table was done eating while the other was still to be served. It was a busy night. It was not so much of a bother either. The weather was great and we were not in a hurry. Everyone enjoyed the variety of food and the quality. The selection of drinks and beers was great. We all enjoyed our time together.

    This was our first time at Todd's, and we were pleasantly surprised. The pretzel rolls were delicious, the main courses were tasty, and the service was excellent. If I had to find fault, it was that the pastry crust on my chicken pot pie was a little dry. But that's really about it. Recommended.

    Had a great time at Todd English PUB!!! The food was AWESOME!! The service could have been better - our waitress was taking care of several tables and we kind of was forgotten...when we stopped her and asked her for something she was quick, but didn't check on us often enough. It was VERY loud!! The music was LOUD which caused people to have to talk loud to be heard. I asked for a muscato wine and there were none, my husband and friend asked for a Coors Light and they were out, asked for a Miller Light and they were out. Really need to have things that are on the menu.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 6/18/2014
    I was extremely disappointed last night at dinner. For a table of two, and the restaurant having open tables, our dinner took over 2 and half hours to complete. The majority of the night was spent waiting on the drinks, food and server. My partner, had ordered his martini and after a half hour he had to re order it. I had the brisket. It was awful. I was expecting the tender melt in your mouth experience we all know and love. Their attempt was to make it a bacon. It was overly salted and I felt like I was eating cold congealed fat. The absolute best part of the restaurant was our hostess. She was funny and friendly. Hopefully she can move on to a restaurant that will mimic her skills.

    The beer menu looked good, but the wait staff was not knowledgeable about the offerings. The food was nothing special. The restaurant was noisy even though it was not crowded. We had an extra charge on our bill that had to be removed. There are many better options in Birmingham.

    After requesting a table specifically with a good view of the big tv for the World Cup on Fathers Day in our reservation, we were bumped from the seats we requested because a larger party reserved the pllace. YOur reservation is only good as long as a larger party doesnt want it. We were very frustrated as we were seated in a corner where half of us had ot turn our chairs to even see the tv. We went there because the al.com article talked about how supportive mgt was with World Cup fans. We should have gone to Buffalo Wild Wings and taken our chances at a table. The waiter was nice and friendly and handled our table of five plus the party of eleven impressively. But we wont be watching the rest of the Cup at Todd English.

    After having lunch here with a co-worker, I decided to bring my husband out in a Friday night so he could see the unique atmosphere and we could support the revitalization of downtown Birmingham. I knew it was pricey, so that was not a surprise. However, the extremely poor service, long wait for drinks and food, greasy appetizer, and music that was too loud to enjoy the sports made this our last visit. Absolutely unacceptable.

    We arrived at the restaurant and was greeted very warmly by the hostess. I thought this would be great. Our server was adequate but seemed to lack any enthusiasm at all. All of our food came at one time as well as our $12 drinks. It's a shame that I must say this but I wouldn't recommend this establishment for anything other than a bite to eat because you were staying in the hotel. We love the uptown area to eat but not paying this price $$$$ for hotel food

    What a let down going here! I was thinking i might enjoy another fine meal in Birmingham and instead got iffy service and bland food. I think Mr. English has lost his touch, because there was nothing to make one return to this place. The bartenders are too busy talking to friends to get you drinks, the service staff confuses the orders and then you get food with no flavor. Maybe stop here for a drink, BUT SKIP THE FOOD!

    We stopped prior to an event downtown. The menu is interesting, and has a wide variety of items. Large beer selection. Service was extremely slow. The food cam e in stages, but three of four items were cool, not cold, but not warm. Very loud, as the decor is concrete floors and a metal ceiling. A bar type atmosphere.

    Even though our server was very good, the arrival of one person's food was very late. The explanation was that there was a shift change and there was not adequate communication at shift change. Once the food arrived it was over cooked ! The bread was actually burnt ! I waited to eat my food until all food had arrived and due to the fact the food was late my food got cold. In addition, I found the food was over priced for what you get.

    I hosted a business lunch at Todd English, P.U.B. and was delighted to find such an exceptional restaurant in the newly developed area around the new, downtown entertainment district. Its sister restaurant is located in Las Vegas and its menu did not disappoint. With a raw bar, a wide variety of excellent food choices and several special offerings, Todd English, P.U.B. is a great place to entertain guests, and enjoy the ambiance of a world-class restaurant with a staff of well-trained professionals. I will be back whenever my travels bring me back to Birmingham!

    We had family members visiting from out of town and they are always looking to try teh newest, local places! They were very pleased with the beer selection, but were somewhat disappointed that some of the local beers were out. Food was amazing, and very uniquely presented! They stated they would definitely like to come back. Only negative is that the noise is a little bit loud and hard to hear each other talk somewhat.

    The food was great and the service was excellent. They have a great menu of interesting "southern" foods and lots of beer on tap. The only negative was that they try to sit six at tables that really should be for 4 people. Luckly we only had 4 and we removed 2 of the chairs from the table. However, if there would have been 6 - the meal would have been extremely uncomfortable. The table next to us had some more average sized diners (for the south) and they could not fit at the table and had to be move to a place where two tables could be put together for the 6 of them. If this problem isn't fixed, I suspect it will keep a lot of people from coming back - regardless of how great the food and service are.

    We went here for Match Day with a party of 9. They were able to accommodate a big group and service was great. Some dishes were amazing (chicken pot pie, burger, fish and chips). The bloody Mary's we're fabulous! Others were just ok - the carving sandwiches were very tasty but pretty plain without much for sides. Overall it was a good experience and can't wait to go back and dig into the awesome beer list!

    But even so, was a little dissappointed. For a long time, this spot at the base of the Westin was the only game in the new Uptown district. However, with new restaurants opening up there, TE needs to step up its menu. A great beer assortment, yes, but beyond sliders, the menu is lacking. If you're looking for just burger fare as you watch big screen sports, then this might be good for you. Beyond that, I'd pass...let's not even get into my dirty wine glass that I had to send back twice...
