Food was good, though I preferred the past menus, but our service was probably the worst we’ve had at Kincaid’s. Everything was very slow from initial greeting and drink orders to drink refills and even bill delivery.

Excellent all around! Perfect server who knew when to stop by to ask for our order, fill water and/or coffee, and check in. Knowledgeable. Biggest surprise was Kinkaid's offered a full menu, not limited to turkey. My friend enjoyed the salmon and I had the turkey which was stunning ... cooked to perfection as were the potatoes, stuffing and green beans.
The servers let diners enjoy their meal. We were never rushed and we sat for a while. There were a couple of parties of 8 or 10 who were sitting and talking and they too were relaxed and enjoying themselves.
An excellent choice.

The turkey was dry and over cooked, but certainly edible. The sides were skimpy.
The restaurant was packed for Thanksgiving!
We have gone there many times and will return, but wasn't up to their usual standard.

My open-faced roast beef sandwich was unedible. It was drowning in salt; even the french fries were over-seasoned with a pile of black pepper on them. It was a terrible meal. I expect a lot better quality of food from Kincaids.

I always enjoy Kincaid's. While the service was slower than I've typically experienced and the food lukewarm, I understand the challenges all restaurants are having finding staff. All things considered, Kincaid's did a good job. I have no hesitation returning for personal and business meals.

I enjoyed their twist on an Old Fashioned. Delicious prime rib. Great ambiance with the exception of the group chanting “David! David! David!” from the other side of the restaurant that would intermittently interrupt our conversation. Reasonably good value. I will definitely go back.

I guess the original’s were bought out by some new company and usually this is my B-Day go to. Not ever again. $400 for a baby portion is not acceptable.

Our service was fantastic, our food was a bit unremarkable. For that price point, I want to be wowed by my meal with everything cooked and seasoned to perfection, this was not our experience. The lobster was good, but our filet was overseared and all the sides were just so so, not delicious by any means. I had really high hopes for dinner and our server was the bright spot! We may return, but it will be awhile!

The kitchen was out of a lot of items, so I did not get my first or second choice. I think the problem may have been too many hockey fans.

After we gave the waiter our credit card, it was at least 15 minutes before we got it back.

The overall experience was solid with pretty good food but they were out of a lot of items including Walleye and our poor server was covering about 12 tables so our level of service wasn't outstanding.

We had not been to dinner at Kincaid’s in quite awhile. It was nice to experience a buzz of activity in the restaurant. Everything went smoothly with plenty of coordination done by our server who was masterful. We had a very enjoyable meal and made it to our concert with time to spare. In all, the evening was relaxed and enjoyable.

I’ve been here before for drinks and appetizers and had a really great experience. Decided to come back for dinner and the food just did not meet expectations. My wife got the Atlantic char, and while we expected charred skin… it was black to the point of having to scrape it off to make it edible and the fish was over cooked and underseasoned. I got the seafood trio, which is jumbo prawns, shrimp and scallops. The shrimp I got were tiger shrimp, overcooked and underseasoned. The salmon was over cooked and underseasoned. The scallops were really great, perfectly cooked with a quick sear of the grill and well seasoned. We also had shrimp and grits for an app which were fine.

Great food. Service was good, but the waitress should be told a “messy bun” is not an appropriate hairstyle for a upper crust restaurant.

The dinner started badly when two of our drinks, which were ordered on the rocks arrive up in martini glasses. The service was slow. I asked for a glass of wine with dinner and it arrived after I’d finished eating. One of our party ordered ribs and they came stone cold. Replacement ribs showed up when we were ready to leave The billing was screwed up in that his meal was deducted from another person’s check.
