Excellent brunch menu with many choices. I had the salmon Benedict, short stack and chorizo eggs skillet. Bottomless bloody and mimosas for cheap. Comfortable atmosphere that allows you to linger.

I appreciate the ambiance and the customer service has been very good both times I have gone. I definitely appreciate the vegetarian options that are offered. Our most recent experience was on Valentine's night, and they did a really good job of making it special

We love Broadway Cellars. The staff is always so accommodating. The quantity and price of food you get is always amazing. They do bottomless mimosas and coffee. :)

Our experience was good overall. The food was great and they have unlimited bloody mary/mimosa combo for $15! Nice comfortable atmosphere. However every time I have gone there, I find the hostess to be rather unfriendly and rude. But that would definitely not stop me from returning.

We walked to Broadway Cellars on a cold, windy night. The food was great, our server was attentive and we had a wonderful time with our friends. The only recommendation is to dim the lights and possibly put a little candle on the table, the atmosphere would feel much cozier. Our entrees were great value for the price as the servings were decent. No need to order an appetizer. We had the pork brine, eggplant parm, meatloaf and the pork special, everyone was pleased. Don't pass on the warm bread with olive oil, it is a real treat!

Our server was excellent. We had a reservation for 6 for a birthday Sunday brunch. Several of us ordered bottomless mimosas and almost everyone had coffee. Our server kept up with all of our coffee needs, and kept mimosas flowing. She made good suggestions for orders and really added to our experience. Everyone's food was delicious! I'd never been here for brunch before and it's excellent!

Been here for Mon. Burgers, and now they have a new menu and Happy Hour to enjoy. Love this place! The service is wonderful. People go for the food but we also go for the drinks. Can’t wait to go back again and try some more of the other menu items. This visit we had the pork shank and let me tell you there was plenty to take home and enjoy again. As always, the drinks were good as well as the Tomato Soup to warm you up on a chilly day.

Can't wait to go back and enjoy again. They are probably tired of us coming in so often, but we will return.

Service here was impeccable! $5 Martinis on Friday are a steal as they will make you any you would like! They have great seasonal specials and a wide range of price points/entree options so it’s a great group spot, yet it’s warm and inviting enough for a date night. Tables and chairs are roomy and comfortable . Cellars has a great neighborhood bistro feel with large wine selection and nice seafood/veggie options. but also had beer, burgers, etc. truly Something for everyone. The pork chop was tender and flavorful, burgers thick and juicy and prepared exactly how we requested. Drinks were refilled or made promptly, and they made us a special birthday sundae with candles for our friend. We Felt so welcomed and cared for which is rare nowadays. Thank you! Will be back for brunch and the special wine events.

After spectacular service over Labor Day, the service fell far short on this occasion. Our waiter from Day was present but unfortunately we were seated elsewhere. The crowd there wasn’t for me. The crab cakes appear to have shrunk. I’ll try elsewhere

Cellars is a fantastic neighborhood brunch spot with good food, cozy atmosphere, and great and friendly service.

I've come twice for brunch on a Sunday and both times were a lovely experience. Servers are quite attentive and helpful with suggestions and substitutions. An order of coffee gets you your own small carafe to pour hot and fresh as needed, and the bottomless mimosas, though at first seemingly a little weak, are constantly refilled and are an amazing deal at $10 per person.

Standouts are the Quiche du Jour ($10) and the Broadway Potatoes side - which each time I've visited have always been served hot, deliciously seasoned, and perfectly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The Benedicts are my personal favorite - especially the Salmon Benny ($13) served over the best potato pancakes I've ever had the pleasure of tasting.

For those who like a little variety, it's easy to split plates and sides to share with others, which is something I really enjoyed.

Though I haven't come for anything other than brunch, a friend raves over the dinner menu and the fact there's weekly specials and a lovely bar area may make Cellars worth checking out for lunch / dinner. Overall, hands down reccommended for weekend brunch, and will definitely be visiting again.

Great specials, very interesting beers on tap and bottled, very large portions, some really creative dishes. Lover the half price wine bottles on Tuesdays!!! Goes well with the nice, soft music. And you can converse easily--the noise level is very low compared to most restaurants. Tablecloths are a tell-tale about noise!!

The food here is always delicious! The beginning fresh baked bread and olive oil was Perfect! The bread was indeed fresh! I had the Mac n' cheese with BBQ pulled pork, with a side of brussel sprouts. OMG! My hubby had the house salad and the pork chops! Nothing was left on his plate! I took home leftovers. Always do! The Servers at Broadway Cellars really know the menu and the Chef. Take dessert home if you aren't hungry for it right after dinner!

The service was outstanding and the willingness to accommodate for special seating requests was great. The food is very well prepared, fresh, arrives at table hot from kitchen. The beer-batter fried brussels sprouts was a very pleasant and tasty surprise. Both the appetizers and main courses were very large, so taking leftovers home is a bonus. We have eaten here at least five times and never have been disappointed. The beer selections are really good, with a wide range available on tap, from IPAs to Porter.

Broadway Cellars is notable for their wine events. The most recent event we went to allowed you to taste 20 wines for $20 and included a buffet. Several good wines were offered and you could purchase bottles for your home collection at a discount. The buffet included salmon with caviar, mussels, and other good food and was kept well supplied despite the crowd. A very good value and fun event.

Normally service is excellent, but this time around it was a bit slow. I am certain it was the flux of guest in town for Market Day's that slowed things down this go around. Don't worry, we will be back for another great time.
