    Krebs doesn't disappoint -- food, atmosphere or friendly service. We prefer the lounge area near the fireplace or the front porch in nice weather. The menu has a good variety, and different price points. Preparation and presentation are hallmarks of the experience.

    Father’s Day took my husband for brunch. He ordered the chicken and waffles. The chicken was fatty and greasy. My son ordered the burger and added bacon. The hamburger itself was small and there was no bacon added. Food took over an hour to come out just to be disappointed.

    Everything was absolutely amazing. You get a huge portion for what you pay. I had Shrimp and Grits and my wife had stuffed French toast with a blue berry compote. Best food ever. Each member of the staff was very kind and courteous. Our waitress was top notch. I’d recommend Krebs over any restaurant in the area. It’s worth the trip.

    This was the first time that we have ever been to Krebs. My wife and I went Sunday brunch for our 39th wedding anniversary. I would like compliment the young woman who had a red ribbon in her hair. She helped seat us and provided us with the menus and water. She was extremely friendly and upbeat. She answered our questions and provided us with menu recomemendations. Watching her interact with other patrons she did the same with every table. The rest of the staff was helpful and courteous.

    It was the last event for my daughter’s bridal shower weekend, we had brunch with a few of her friends before they left town. The service was friendly, very professional and attentive. Our food was great and I thought moderately priced. It was relaxing and a nice ending to a lovely weekend in a beautiful setting.

    My friend and I had brunch here on Sunday. She ordered chicken and waffles. The chicken tenders were burnt and stale. I had the French toast which was OK but nothing special. I would’ve expected more from an eatery that is so highly reputed. At best the food was average.

    Very disappointed!! We were celebrating our son’s graduation, didn’t get a drink for 90 minutes. They were trying to sell very expensive vine instead of the one that we ordered in the first place. There was no food that we ordered, and when we got food basically leftovers from the kitchen, everything was cold. We understand they were very busy on graduation week, and they supposed to let people know that they are not taking reservations because they can’t provide service. Our special night was ruined and we will always remember how bed it was!

    The menu was wonderful - from appetizers to dessert - the setting... from artwork to furniture and layout - was spectacular. Food was exquisite - salmon and filet - Our server and her support staff were attentive but not intrusive - And all in, we thought it was more than appropriately priced given the end to end experience - And the special drinks from ages past - were an absolute treat
