This was our second visit as a family. We had 17 people (5 kids under 7). We were seated in the private room. Our server was attentive and efficient. The breakfast food was very good for the adults. The children's menu could use some minor adjustments. The hot chocolate was the big hit for the youngest!! Thank you for providing the great dining experience. More

A few friends and myself flew to the Bloomington area to work for Super Bowl and was looking for a place to eat. After looking around for some local flavor we decided on Senser's. The place is a very nice size, awesome layout for seating and Tv's, food was great, and overall a very pleasant atmosphere. Our waiter Eli was very knowledgeable about the food, energetic & positive attitude, and very observant to our needs such as if we needed a refill on our water or soda. Overall it was an awesome experience, an awesome layout & concept for a restaurant/bar/sports grill combination area. We will stop by at least once more before we leave town. More

Check-in process was absolute chaos. The staff at that point had no clue what was going on and obviously didn’t care (and were clearly annoyed when we asked what the delay was about). We had a 1:15 reservation and arrived early, asking to be seated whenever possible. (We have two kids and both were already quite hungry.) The staff seated at least 4 walk-up families (we heard them check in saying they had no reservations) of our same size before us and when we asked why they weren’t seating us first, the hostess used her snottiest voice to say, “well your reservation was for 1:15...?! It’s not 1:15 yet.” Once we were pushy enough to finally get seated, our server was excellent. Food was very good, though expensive for what it is. Overall, the kids love it, and we will probably be back for them. But we will prepare ourselves for a hassle. More

I made a reservation but really did not need to. The restaurant/bar was pretty wide open at the time we ate (7-9pm). The food was great, and fairly interesting. I had a fish wrap that was very good, and the sweet potato fries were some of the best I ever had. We noticed that the website said they had an extensive bourbon selection, but apparently they got rid of most of that as there was not much of a demand for it. The waitress did pick one small batch bourbon for us to try, and we had fun with that (the drinks definitely did the the trick)! The only detractors ratings wise is that it's located right in the middle of the hotel by all the foot traffic going to/from the pool. That, and the fact that some of the cocktails were a bit pricey. Overall good experience for a casual date, if you can look past all the people walking by. More
