    We all ordered the Cesar salad but with different protiens. We requested it to not be grilled as I had it grilled before and didnot care for a warm wilted salad. Th Cesar was great fresh though. I got it with the steak and it was cooked perfectly. Service was fantastic.

    I took my Grandson to Midgley’s to celebrate his birthday. Our server was attentive and courteous! The food was delicious (my grandson is picky) so I was very pleased! We topped off our meal with The Midgley’s Mud Pie!

    Outdoor patio is cool in the summer. Service is excellent. Nice selection of appetizers. Avocado fries are a fun treat. Salads good. The risotto was a little too heavy but the scallops were perfection.

    Sat with nothing for 10 minutes, then someone brought us water. Another 5 minutes went by and still hadn’t seen our server. Asked the hostess to request a drink order with our server, she did and I could hear the conversation. Server took another 5 minutes to come to our table, 20 minutes from the time we sat and the time we saw or server. We ordered a bottle and an appetizer without knowing when she would return again to take our full order. No apologizing, no explanation, no acknowledgement, no introduction. The look on her face told me that our service would not improve and that she wasn’t having a good day/week/month/life. We canceled our order with the hostess and left. We went around the corner and ate at prime table. We spent about $300 with tip. That server did herself and the restaurant a huge disservice!

    Normally don’t write reviews but was quite disappointed in how steak was prepared ordered the tomahawk asked for the steak to be prepared rare came to the table medium pointed it out to the waitress and it was taken off the tab, the oysters did not look appealing, and the lobster was bland although it was cooked perfectly. Lastly when ordering drinks the beer I ordered had ran out and the bar tender tried to pass off as I ordered a different one, service was also really slow took about 40 minutes to even see the waitress to place order after she took our drink order, maybe they are shorthanded at the moment. I have been wanting to try this place for some time now knowing Midgley used to be the chef at Ernie’s in Manteca his food was amazing. This was truly disappointing to me as I talked highly about how amazing his food was, and for my girl and I to try the place out for our very first time made quite a bad impression.

    The only thing we enjoyed were the slushees. Bread basket was moldy (found out after already biting into it), scallop risotto was dry with scallops not cleaned and ahi tuna way over sauced. Second time dining that we didn’t enjoy our food. Noticed level of care for food served has diminished over time.

    Terrible! My first time there and most likely the last. Chicken was awful. We sat outside and there was a table next to us with about 4 people who chain-smoked cigarettes the entire time. We brought the issue up to our server when he asked how we were doing and his response was, they had already been told not to smoke there…

    Ate here several times, always loved it. This is our go to date night/ celebration restaurant. The food was not as good as it has been in the past. We had a long wait even for appetizers and salads, food was over cooked. When I kindly asked for a new steak since mine was over cooked, I was given back a raw one. I understand the kitchen was busy so I just left it at that. Server was great, very friendly and accommodating. Waitress passing out food was very Unfriendly.

    Waited over 20 mins after seating to have to ask for a waiter to come take our drink orders. Once we finally ordered food it then took well over 45 mins to come out. Way overpriced for the service you get. Food was good not excellent.

    Had the $160 wagyu ribeye Father’s Day special and it honestly tasted like any other steak. I could’ve got a normal ribeye for 1/4 of the price and been just fine. Expected a lot more for such an expensive steak.

    Took 2 hours to eat lunch, we didn’t receive either appetizer, didn’t get any food until over an hour. Drinks were not refilled. It was Fathers Day, but the restaurant was not even full and the waiter just apologized and said the kitchen was “slammed”. If a table has children, keep them fed and happy and the parents’ drinks full, and I wouldn’t mind waiting, but even that didn’t happen. I’ve been here many times and never had an experience like this, so I hope this isn’t the new norm. Bill was over $200 for 5 adults, most didn’t have alcohol, and that’s after we made them remove the appetizers from the bill since we didn’t even receive them.

    Had sweet potato fries with my steak sandwich & they were a little on the darkside almost burnt but still editable. Fried fish my wife had was also on the dark side & looked overcooked, however, she said it was quite good.

    Had a reservation and waited a while before waitress appeared.. continually had to ask the waitress for complimentary items (bread). Waitress was slow and seemed to be bothered...restaurant slow and we were asked to leave because their was another reservation waiting for our table... keep in mind plenty of empty tables.

    The table was nice, the Steak was great. The French fries were not even as good as some fast food. They forgot to bring me a side salad I ordered. The dessert (Brownie Sundae) was good. Overall just a “meh” experience, which made it really overpriced.

    Overall, Midgley’s was very good. Service was great. Devon was attentive and polite. Ambiance was nice. The food was good with a few standouts like the Crack Shrimp and Clam Chowder. The steaks were good (filet and ribeye) but maybe a bit under seasoned and overpriced for what they were. Roasted potatoes were plain and boring; they were disappointing, but the biggest disappointment was the Mud Pie, which was more of a sundae. The brownie was stale and seemed SaveMart-esque. However, the Doughnut Pudding was lovely.

    Been here before and both the service and the food were better than average. This visit was really a disappointment. Service started out great and declined rapidly after we placed our order. Food came out in a random and sporadic manner with three of us waiting for ten minutes for our food while the others were served. All in all for a restaurant that demands a premium price, the food was average at best. Nothing special and not terrible. Unfortunately I do not think we need to hurry back as there are average restaurants all around for a lot less money.
