Good service, delicious entrees, huge portions. My only negative is that it’s pretty poor lighting
Love this place. Great for work drinks or a business lunch or just a fun time with friends.
Used to live nearby and ate here about 50 times over the years, however this was our first time back since pre-pandemic. It's still fantastic. The inside ambience is warm, the outside patio is airy. The cocktails have always been inventive and delicious and still are. And the food is high end, well crafted comfort food.
I go here for brunch about once a month and every time the food, drinks and service is top notch.
Food was delicious. I loved the pulled pork sandwich. Great cocktails!
Very good food, nice fire pits. Staff was attentive.
Loved the food!
Great service and ambiance! Drinks were delicious! Porridge was a little salty but other than that had a great experience:)
Seated on time, great service. Food awesome (kale Caesar and fish )
It was a business lunch and everything was beyond excellent! The service was amazing as was everything we ordered! Everyone found something on the terrific menu that appealed to them and the food came hot and tasty! Messhall Kitchen is a fantastic place to eat well and discuss business in a wonderful atmosphere.
An incredible hidden gem! The short rib plate was immaculate, rack of ribs was perfect, oysters were tasty, and the drinks were the best!! Really happy with my experience here. Ernesto is an incredible server!
Our party had the short ribs and the scallops with grits. The food was wonderful. The beef was tender and flavorful. The scallops were perfectly cooked. Drinks were also excellent.
We had a wonderful lunch! Adam, our server, was so attentive and very kind to bring my little dog a water dish! He also had no qualms about splitting the check 4 ways by our seat number, which most servers don’t like to do. The food is always fantastic at Messhall! We will definitely be back!
Waiter was friendly, place was moderately busy. Everyone was following COVID protocols. Food was delicious. We especially liked the Mac and Cheese.
Had a lovely time! Food was great! Outdoor patio area was very pleasant!
The food and drinks here are to die for. Literally craveable. And the service is attentive and on point! I love this place!
Arrived at 11:00am with a reservation for 11:15am. I checked in and the host told us that she would call us closer to our reservation time. Our reservahkkk
Food was incredible, unreal risotto and salmon. My server was the kindest person - had a really rough day and he instantly made it better with attentive service and good conversation. Will definitely be returning - thanks Messhall!
Always a great experience. The staff is super friendly, the food and drink is excellent, and the vibe is very welcoming.
This was not a good experience. The food was very bland on the whole, and my harvest salad was clearly not very fresh. We asked for the speciality biscuits - when they came out they were hardcore burnt. Although we weren't charged for them, what a waste. Coffee comes out lukewarm, and although I ordered an Americano, it tasted more like filter coffee - I can't be certain of this though. Our waitress was lovely, but that's not enough to get us to come back to this place, despite a voucher for replacement biscuits.
The service and ambiance was great, the pulled pork and short ribs was excellent. The Cobb salad was average at best, the baby kale with ahi tuna was good and would have been better had the tuna not been over cooked
Food is fantastic and excellent service, would recommend to anyone.
We shared the roasted chicken and house salad and it was plenty of food for 2 women. I eat the dark meat and she eats the light meat, so a perfect option. Next time I think I'll try the Turkey Burger. Went on to the Greek for the Monkees' Final Tour and walked back. A pleasant evening and glad to be out again.
Nice place to eat before a concert at the Greek. The food was very good and the prices are reasonable. The staff were very nice and attentive. All in all, a very good experience
The service was slow but the food was delicious.
Great spot for meeting up with a big group of friends! Messhall was super accommodating and easy to coordinate with! They also call and confirm your reservation so if you have any changes they can ensure it's extra smooth. Also, the drinks are so delicious!!
Great neighborhood joint
It was our first time, but certainly not the last
Service was outstanding
Great food. Great customer service. We were running late and they accommodated us. We really enjoyed the food. Very close to the Greek theater
Great service and delicious food. Would have like some other healthier options.
As tables filled up the noise level made it really hard to have a conversation.
Very nice lunch with a good friend not seen in two years! Our server was kind & patient & allowed us to take our time. Food and drink were delicious. I would only say that given the liveliness of the conversations around us, the music was a bit loud & competitive.
Excellent service, excellent food, nice selection of cocktails. Would definitely return. (Old person addendum: It was louder than I like, as I enjoy good conversation when I'm out with friends.)
Always a pleasant experience. Food and drinks are great!! Staff is friendly, funny, and attentive.
Comfortable space, friendly service, good food. We enjoyed a low-key birthday dinner here with drinks and appetizer.
Weak service, subpar food. We waited about 20 mins at table before getting asked if we wanted a drink,
Food is always very decent, servers are great, but the bar is super super slow and in one instance completely thought they made our order and we waited 15-20 mins. It seems odd on a not so busy evening that they would want to keep the drinks going. No sense of urgency. Very strange but it happens a lot there.
Great food an oysters are super fresh. Drink also very good
MessHall has been my favorite date spot for years with my husband. We adore it. Pre-quarantine we used to love dollar oyster/dollar taco Tuesdays. Now that they no longer have that Tuesday special, we've been exploring more of the regular menu. The food is delicious. The bartenders are great and we love their cocktails, especially rolling the dice.
We made a reservation on open table for outside (we are still being cautious because of the pandemic so we are not sitting inside). We got there and was told they could only seat us inside. I chose Messhall because they had reservations. There were other places we could have gone to with out. She told us we could wait outside until something was available, and that it would be about 15 minutes. We saw a number of parties leave, and then after 20 minutes of waiting, I checked back in, and she looked at me and said, oh we can seat you now. I assume this means she had forgotten about us. We were the only party waiting to be seated. No apology or acknowledgment that we had been waiting outside for about 20 minutes. When we were seated we were sat in the middle of the outdoor patio instead of close to one of the headlamps as I had requested in the Open Table reservation. I assumed this was because the other tables were reserved or something, but no one ever came to fill those tables. Not sure what was going on with the hostess, but we were not pleased.
Fortunately, our waiter was great and the food was good.
The hostess who accommodated our reservation was very nice. When we were seated it took awhile to get our orders taken, it wasn't clear who our waiter would be. However, the food was pretty good and plentiful, I would come again.
