By day, Twenty9 accommodates the thriving businesses in the corporate center and surrounding areas, offering dine-in and delivered lunches, as well as lunch buffets.

  • Very slow day so why bad service?

    Very slow day so why were we put at a very small table in the corner of the bar? We had cocktails at the bar but we certainly expected a table in the dining room since we had made reservations. No one asked us....we just followed the waitress to this small table and were flabbergasted. It was our second time back but it will be out last.

    Twenty9 is the third generation of this corporate center hotspot. The location is very convenient for the business crowd in the surrounding area. We have been patrons of all 3 iterations, and have dined at Twenty9 several times, because it is convenient to our home as well. However, the quality of the food items on the menu has suffered gradually over time. Apathy, perhaps? My wife's 'Chicken Steven' is supposed to be their signature dish, but the chicken was dry and tough. I know, because I attempted to cut it for her. Our server was sympathetic, and took it back to the kitchen for another try. The second piece was not as tough, but still very dry. My meal was better, but neither dish was worth the asking price. Sorry, it will be a while before we will be back. Perhaps enough negative reviews will bring about a change in the quality.

    Unexpectedly our Daughter came home for a night from college and we wanted a nice place, close to home with good food and better Martini's. The obvious choice was Restaurant Twenty9 and we were not disappointed. What we enjoy is that you have a choice of a busy bar/party atmosphere or a quiet backroom to talk and catch up.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 10/25/2014
    the food was tasty and well presented. Not sure how this place gets any business, it is tucked away off the street and very hard to find if you were not specifically looking for it. As we sat for our 6:30 reservation (we were the only ones there, which made us feel uncomfortable and weary about eating there), people then began to show up. Then, once our food arrived, it was well presented and was very good. We'll be coming back, and bringing friends, as not to be so lonely there.

    Twenty9 was certainly passable. It has a nice central bar and the items on the menu that come from their smoker were great. Had the ravioli with smoked sausage. Very tasty. It is a good value.

    Late Sat afternoon I found out I didn't have to work Sat night. At the last min. I went on Open Table to check out 29. My girlfriend gets her hair cut by the owners wife. We had a great dinner and hung around the bar for after dinner drinks. Thank again Open Table!

    While the staff was excellent, and food quite good, the sheet metal ceiling was the roof. The A/C ducts are exposed hanging from the tin roof which reflects the sound. The tables were covered with some awful plastic material sheet. Residual structure from previous restaurant business.

    IManTicketsVIP
    Dined on 10/3/2014
    I've been to twenty9 many times but this was the first time I have something negative to write. When people come to Twenty9 for dinner they know going into it that they will be paying a lot for their meals but that's ok because we also know we're going to get an excellent meal. When I go into a restaurant charging this much, the one thing I don't expect is 102.9 WMGK blasting music to the point that the entire dinning room area is shaking from the speakers bass. Seemed like many people besides us were also annoyed and I have to question if Twenty9 wants to be a bar with blasting music or an upscale restaurant charging a premium for their meals. They can't be both. I wanted a nice quiet dinner and what I got was the complete opposite.

    I went with a few colleagues for a business dinner. Even though the place was practically empty, we had a hard time getting the attention of our waiter. When we were able to find him, it appeared as though we were a bother to him. After we were served our dinners, he never checked back (one of my colleagues dishes was practically inedible). The coffee he served us was so weak, it looked like broth and tasted like water. All around, it was a complete miss. I will probably not dine here again, if given the option.

    We tried Twenty9, on Saturday. After reading many reviews, we thought, "let's try"... The Cheesesteak Eggrolls, were really good. The Chicken Steven, was wonderful... Crab Cake, my daughter, had were good, a little too much filler.... Really cute place. Loved the rustic barn look. We wanted to go to a nice place for Parents Weekend, at Immaculata, glad we chose Twenty9...We used a Groupon, to offset the bill, glad we had one.

    The 29 is a nice restaurant but it's hard to describe. I wouldn't call it homie but I would call it sufficient and it certainly has good staff. The food was really good and we had a good time and the drinks were a reasonable during happy hour.. So I would recommend this for kind of a Friday night out at the same time if you want a little more wild activity go out on the patio and it was pretty lively out there but we staked inside. Enjoy

    We were pleasantly surprised by the new atmosphere (used to be the Boathouse) and menu selections. We started out with the cheese board and was a bit disappointed. Board was brought out with no explanation of the cheeses or condiments, no fruit, etc. I would expect a cheese board to have a variety of soft and hard cheeses; this only had 3 hard. We ordered the ceviche, but I believe was presented in the wrong vehicle. It was layered in a shot glass and it was hard to get to the ceviche on the bottom without spilling it on the table. The mussels were good - a little heavy on the herbs and the perogies were definitely homemade (not frozen!). The wait staff was friendly and attentive. We will definitely be returning!

    Twenty9 is nice place to meet friends for dinner. But the menu is limited and I think it is very exspensive for what you get! My friends and I go there to hear The Chatterband! The drinks are very exspensive ! The service is fair and it takes a long time for the food to come out! The deck is a fun place to party!!!!

    My husband and I used a groupon coupon (otherwise I would have never heard about it). The food (especially for the price) was sub-par. The seafood was obviously not fresh and the scallops I ordered were diver (ish) scallops( that was disappointing). The service was not great and there was a max of 4 other tables in the restaurant on a Saturday night. Not again...Sorry:(

    I had been to Twenty9 for drinks a couple times but this was the first time for dinner. The building is beautiful, and the wait staff excellent, but we all agreed the food was pretty disappointing. Even the oil served with the pita bread was just weird. Almost like the chef is trying too hard. The potted plants on the outdoor dining deck were dried out dead - even the weeds growing in the pots were dead... Come on guys! Who is managing this place? Great place for drinks after work - but go somewhere else for dinner.

    First, the menu is weird. There are pricey entrees which would make sense for a classier establishment. However, the inside is nicer. My husband, daughter and I were looking forward to dining outside with a more casual menu. There were a few casual items on the menu (three flatbreads and a burger). My daughter and I ordered two different flatbreads that came out on a crust that was almost like a burnt cracker and the flatbreads were cold. However, my husband had a burger with short ribs on top and it was excellent and worth the price. Also, our waiter took his time serving us, the check, etc. and the establishment was not even busy.

    The service was fair, the entrees seemed a bit overpriced for a location in an office park. We liked the dining on the deck, however there were customers whowere going to the back deck bar who stood under deck smoking, so there wasa constant smell of smoke. The wine by the glass and cocktails seemed overpriced as well. Overall, it was OK, but did not seem like a great value.

    Pretty place when u find it. On a monday night there were no people in the restaurant but outside had a good amount, maybe 20 people in groups. The menu had choices that fit outdoor and or bar setting and the prices while higher than many pubs in the area may be justified by quality, but only if that quality is maintained. The leap in price from the starts to the Entree prices are high. I had the filet and it was good priced high, or a Monday Night when the setting felt less formal. The staff was counting the minutes till they got to go home. My first thought is while the food is good they may want to try some specials on Mon, Tues, and Wed. I will be back and I will have a burger or flatbread.
