It was a busy night with a concert at the Palladium, but you’d think by now they’d know what to expect and staff accordingly? Our server came by only three times; once to take our order, next to bring our drinks (not our food) and then finally our bill— after being asked to. Not once did he check in on us during our meal, or look to fill water glasses. Food was okay, but wasn’t complete. All in all...meh?

Average food, in an average bar, with average service. I was surprised at the number of recommendations this establishment received. Either the dining populace in Carmel wouldn't know good food if it bit them, or Matt the Miller's has a "reality-distortion field" that activates when you walk in. My better half and I ordered a "Make-your-own-combo"; soups were beer cheese, and side-salads. Admittedly, the beer cheese had TWO good moments; served warm, but not boiling, cheesy and smooth, but not pasty. Salad greens hadn't been adequately washed so there was a bit of "crunch" from the dirt, sand...? Once the server discovered we weren't there to deplete the bar, his attitude changed; and not for the better. Coffee was food service, as were the mini-desserts. Avoid this place; there are better fast-food options with less pretentiousness.

We may have ordered but the shrimp and grits just wasn't very good. Even with advance reservations we were stuck in the back corner of the noisy bar behind column. Not a very good experience.

We enjoyed the food; eating outside was a plus; the waiter was completely devoid of personality. He was strictly yes and no and didn't offer any suggestions (would you like some bread while you wait?). Wasn't BAD. Just no help. Nice to have valet parking.

Moscow Mules were very good (Monday $5 special) but small. I had a Matt's Salad that was just ok --- really not much to it (large size with only a few dried apricots and spiced walnuts ) and I had to even ask for more dressing. The salmon flatbread that my friend had was good. The chocolate cake was very good (big enough to split 3 ways) but was pricey at $12. Excellent coffee.

I would give this restaurant another chance. Their burgers are to be very good. I ordered the shrimp and grits which is o e of their specialties. The shrimp was a medium quality and the dish was smothered in a cream sauce thT was way too much.

Food was average, on the bland side. Miller Chips - tasty and different, definitely a large portion. Peppered Burger toppings were good but the burger taste did not come through. My Husband had the Pork Tenderloin that was sent back as some pieces were very rare. (Uncooked center). Staff was happy to assist with the remake but please don’t tell me that it is supposed to be cooked that way. Second plate was cooked right and the pork was tasty however the mashed potatoes didn’t seem to be seasoned at all. Cheesecake and Carrot Cake dessert cups were good, my socks are still on after this meal. I would tell potential first timers that it’s worth a try but no plans for a return visit.

Our fish & chips were very good. Glad we asked for sweet potato fries- they were excellent. Our portions were large & we had enjoyed too many of the pretzel bites to finish our meal.
Our guest found parking right in front. With those few spots taken we found parking difficult.

I definitely won’t be returning even though our server was excellent. They some how over cooked a 9 oz filet even though there was no char on the outside (ordered medium). Got the shrimp scampi steak topper on the side and their version of shrimp scampi is cocktail shrimps heated up in a pink creamy sauce, they were disgusting. The restaurant looked nice on the inside but was beyond loud and required talking extremely loud to hear someone else.

Food is always good, actually Very good. Drinks sat unfilled throughout our whole main course. Waiter never checked back.

Again when we did not order from the bar, the waiter seemed to lose interest. Been away for poor service before, maybe should just stop going back all together.

We enjoyed the lunch outside, with great service. Beautiful setting. I was a little disappointed with my salad as the greens seemed wilted. I would probably ask for the dressing on the side next time. My companion definitely enjoyed her soup and flatbread.

We made reservations for a party of 10. After seeing the table and realizing that the table was in the bar and all the seats were high tops, we requested to be moved to regular chairs to accommodate our 90 yr old grandma. The staff quickly set us up in a room upstairs and helped us get Grandma onto the elevator. We had a great family reunion and our server, Sharon I think, was exceptional.
