What more is there to say about Broadway cellars then excellent. Every time I go I am not disappointed. Their service is excellent, their food is plentiful and delicious, and the owners are a wonderful couple.

With the exception of the waiter not believing my daughter's salad was missing avocado, the overall experience was fantastic. When my daughter told the waiter of the error he brought back some avocado and stated that the chef said it was already in the salad. Clearly she was not going to argue, however the guest sitting across from her ordered the same salad and it was very evident that one had avocado. Slight hiccup in what would have been an excellent review.

We went on a Saturday night (early) and were quickly seated. We mentioned we had a show at 8:00 PM and were assured we would be able to finish in plenty of time to get there. And we did! Service was attentive and food was good. I had my first ground chicken burger. Can't say that I loved it, but it was something new and sometimes it just isn't my thing. The rest of our party had a very good burger and an outstanding salad. Would definitely return.

Wonderful Valentine’s dinner! Delicious sesame-crusted Ahi tuna. Perfectly cooked filet Oscar. Savory mushroom ravioli. Not-too-heavy, not-too-sweet bread pudding. Great value!

Met friends for brunch, enjoyed a drink at the bar prior then decided to just sit at a bar table because the bartender provided a welcoming and friendly experience. I ordered the egg white frittata, AMAZING! I’d go back just for that, I chose to keep the side as a cucumber salad but someone at the table subbed out potatoes which looked great too. The place is casual, relaxed service, an excellent brunch option with bottomless mimosas and bloody Mary’s.

Totally meh. Ordered fish and chips. Arrived lukewarm. Disappointing. Service lackluster at best. Not sure who gave all those gave those great reviews.

This is our neighborhood “go to” place. Their weekend brunch is terrific! Nice amount of options from traditional bacon & eggs to a variety of Benedicts. The French toast is so yum! Always a special pancake with interesting combinations of fruits. Service and food always consistent. My fav: the breakfast pasta - try it - you’ll be pleasantly surprised!!

Went early on a Saturday before a concert at Loyola. First time going and was very pleasantly surprised. The restaurant was empty when we got there so we were a little scared why. Server was excellent and the food was great. Will definitely go again.

We love dining at Broadway Cellars. It's a comfortable, delicious, family friendly, restaurant experience. We've eaten there about ten times and the food is always great. The fall/winter seasonal menus are the best. We've gone for breakfast, brunch, and dinner. The holiday season is always busy, so make a reservation. We always do!

It’s been a while since we’ve been here, but it’s always consistent. Haven’t been there for brunch in a very long time. Love the new menu. Everyone at the table got something they really enjoyed. Absolutely love the bottom less Mimosa’s or bloody Mary’s for $10. Well worth it. Service was excellent, other than had to ask for a refill on coffee. Definitely added to our go out for brunch list, it will be much sooner than later than we return. Highly recommend.

We’d never taken advantage of the half-price wine night at the Cellars, but we’re glad we finally did! We really enjoyed the root vegetable pot pie. We may make the Cellars our new spot.

It was a busy Sunday brunch. Our server was very pleasant and engaging, at first. We noticed that all the wait staff were moving quickly and focused on the mission. My host, who has dined there frequently suggested they may be short staffed because the service was less than what they had become accustomed to. My crab Benedict was very good and she enjoyed her French toast. I recommend a reservation for Sunday brunch and patience.
