    Loved Fred Bird! Worth it for sure. My daughter’s mac-n-cheese was dry so she didn’t like it or eat it. My hubby said his sandwich was “ok”. My food was very good. Our server was awesome. Overall great experience! Just “ok” food.

    We attended our annual brunch with Santa and Fredbird and as always it was a fantastic time. Service was good for a brunch and the food was fine. The kids activities with the same as last year but Santa and Fredbird are always the All-Stars. Always interacting and having a great time with the kids, especially Fredbird getting up to his usual hijinks, as if he was at a baseball game.

    The food was above and beyond what we have experienced in the past. Service was great this year. Santa and Fredbird always put a huge smile on our daughter's face and we love the event! The cost for the event continues to climb which will be hard to justify in the future. Overall we are pleased with the experience!

    We made the reservation for 545pm arrived at 550pm due to heavy rain on this Father's day. We were soaken wet getting inside. Once at the counter one gentleman said we are closing now. I showed my reservation that was confirmed and he brought the manager out. She sais sorry we thought you weren't coming and now we are closing. I was disappointed and mentioned that why would you have an appointment slot 15min before closing especially for 6 people. She apologized and went to the kitchen. Came back to say well we can serve you but we were closing. My husband and son decided we would go somewhere else where we are not pushed for time. So we left.

    My blackened Caesar salad was not good. Chicken was cold and rubbery. Drinks took a long time to come out, and I had to send my gin and tonic back. Not sure how they messed that up.

    Our waitress was friendly and fantastic! The food selection for the Mothers Day brunch was wonderful! So many choices and the shrimp were amazing. Our table was in a high traffic area, so that was a bit annoying but manageable. The free entry into the Cardinals Hall of Fame museum was a bonus! The museum is very well done!

We did Mother's Day last year and that's just a wonderful place. I love it. Everything is great! I recommend it for anyone to go, especially tourists

    The Mothers Day Brunch was fantastic! The atmosphere was really nice and fun…and the food and drinks were super good. They had all you can eat shrimp, an omelette station, a carving station with ham & beef tenderloin (really good flavor but they only made it med wellish)…the waffle bar stole the show for us! Very unique flavor with these delicious sugary crunchy pieces in them! Well Worth the money! If you live @ OCW you get 25% off!

    We have been to Cardinals Nation for brunch on many occasions. This time we attended their brunch for Mother’s Day. We were VERY disappointed. Unfortunately, the food was not as good as the prior visits. The bottomless Bloody Mary Bar only had olives and celery to choose from!!! Overall for the price of $50 per person, we felt very ripped off. We will not be going back!!

    Delicious food, good/attentive service, bottomless mimosas/bloody Mary! Now, honestly, how can an Easter brunch open until 2p not be able to accommodate later reservations with the meat carving station? No meat carving station at 1:15 on the 2nd floor. The rest of the food was soooo good too! Lastly, the restaurant was out of decaf coffee at 2p. I get carving station out of meat but how can a restaurant be out of decaf coffee? Our waitress was awesome- we over tipped her!

    What a disappointment! We were seated within a reasonable time of our 1pm reservation for Easter brunch. Then the disappointment… the carving station was closed (they ran out of meat), the “hot” food was ample and it looked delicious, but it was cold (I mean room temperature). When informed of the problem, the server simply shrugged and walked away. Then came the bill. My family will never visit this place again. They need to seriously step up their game, or they too will die a slow death.

    It was an Easter Brunch Buffet. It took awhile to get seated and then to get our drink order. The Carving Station ended early and some people were still eating and wanted more. The waitress was very nice but not good at getting to us for drink refills. The noise level was pretty high but I can’t fault the staff for that.

    Nothing about the food was spectacular. Everything was mediocre at best. Ham was the only thing I would say was very good. The pastries were dry and looked straight out of Sam’s. No high end desserts either- just mediocre. I have been to many nice brunches, and this didn’t compare. Positive: Nice flowers and ice sculpture. I asked if ice tea or coffee was included for the $50 and my waitress said no. The table behind us sat down and their waiter explained that ice tea and coffee were included. So I asked my waitress again. She was very rude and told me it wasn’t. While at the buffet, I saw a manager, and asked him. He said of course it was included. This was all just aggravating. I would not recommend and will not be back.

    We had high hopes for our brunch, however we were disappointed. The line for the omelettes we so long that it took me 3 tried to get one. Plus when we finally got the omelette, there were no clean plates so we had to wait. They ran out of many of the entries so again we had to go back to our seats and wait. Maybe we expected too much, but after all...it was Cardinal Nation. We hope to try again. Thanks, Debbie Ellison 314-277-9193

    We had a party of 6 plus a toddler in a high chair and were seated in a booth set for 4 people. We had to ask 3 times for water. We ordered bottomless mimosas but after the first one arrived, the server never returned to see if we wanted a refill. When we ask to just charge us for a regular mimosas he seemed very perplexed. Had to ask twice for our check. They were running out of food and not replenishing. For $50 pp for a buffet I’d expect more.
