Went there for Mother’s Day brunch. The patio set up was great. The service was rather slow, food did not come out hot either. It tasted good, but not very good. I will definitely return, but only for cocktails and the patio experience. Mimosas were ok.

The wings were great! However, my drink was watered down and definitely not worth $10.

We went in for brunch recently while traveling and felt the food was amazing. Unique twist doing funnel cake and chicken instead of the typical chicken and waffles. I enjoyed the biscuits and gravy. The gravy was full of porky goodness and flavor. Must try the sausage patties and potatoes both well worth it.

We loved the ambiance of Nickel and Rye, since we were looking for a relaxing evening. We ordered three appetizers to share and the amount of food was more than enough. We took almost half of our meal back to our hotel and loved the food. The service was great and very enjoyable.

When I arrived, I was told that it was opening seating although I made a reservation. I was seated at the end of a table that was already occupied by 3 other people. I believe that if you are taking reservations that they should be honored and that it should not be open seating especially if the weather is not adequate enough for the customers to use the outside seating and that causes limited seats.

The sound of the TVs were TERRIBLY TERRIBLY loud. I couldn’t even hear the person sitting right next to me. The manager wouldn’t lower the sound because he couldn’t hear the game. Real nice. Not professional or accommodating. I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone or visit again.

I made a reservation for the Michigan game/a birthday and I even updated it in the morning to be less people with someone on the phone and they were like “thanks for letting us know” when I got there they said they don’t do reservations on game days and I should just sit anywhere. In my open table reservation I put that it was someone’s bday and I was like well do you do anything for bdays, and they were like “no not really”. The burgers are awful. Fried pickles are really good and our waitress was sweet. Just overvalued a super meh experience. Doesn’t seem to be run by super experienced people.

Made an OpenTable reservation only to show up to the restaurant being open seating, and full. Quite disappointing, but we were able to get a table eventually. Service was abysmal - we were there for almost 2 hours and saw our server maybe 5 times. Good hangout spot, but wouldn't go again for a meal.

I had heard a lot about this restaurant so I definitely want to try it but I was somewhat disappointed. The server was really nice and helpful and recommended their best dish wish was the funnel cake and fried chicken and I was really disappointed with how the food tasted. It was below what I expected. I also asked for a strawberry lemonade and got a drink that tasted nothing like a strawberry lemonade. The ambiance is nice and it is a lively spot to hang out with friends.

The venue was great for a brunch and the service was awesome. The large pitchers of mimosas are great. We came when the live music was starting which was really loud and we couldn't really hear one another so we will probably avoid that in the future. Other than that one issue the venue is definitely a great spot to go for a fun brunch with friends.

Only complaint I have is the table they sat us at out side. the countertop hang was not wide enough and I'm 5'1 the shortest one in the group and I hit my knee 3 times just trying to get seated. Other than that food, atmosphere was great.

Our Server for Easter brunch was what made our visit. The food was also great. However, the loud blaring unedited rap music was not what I anticipated to listen to with my 7 and 5 year old for Easter brunch. Again, however, we didn't complain Bc we brought kids to a bar. Our server was aware enough to try to skip songs every time she noticed.

Nothing about this place was good. Have other reviewers been here lately? First issue was we parked in a mostly empty parking lot behind the place and after we were out of the car some valet guy runs up and says its $5 to park. That was a joke and a ripoff. Half of the place we were told is closed (maybe because we went late on a Sun afternoon?) but expected better in every way. Had two just OK drinks (with less than OK service) and left.

Made a reservation but did not need one for this empty bar with food. Server was attentive for the first round of drinks and then my coworkers had to order from the bar the remainder of our visit. Advertising for live music at 7:00 brought us together but the singer didn't begin setting up until after 8 and starting singing by 9:00. Music was really good once it began, appetizers we're great too. Just more of a laid back bar scene and not business outing reservation style.

Go to Nickel and Rye for the craft cocktails, whiskey list, Scotch list, and beer. Has one of the better Scotch lists in Dallas. Less impressed with dinner menu, although the brunch menu sounded more interesting. LIkes: dog friendly patio (with puppy menu), people watching spot overlooking McKinney Ave, great waitstaff, vibrant crowd.

We came around 6:30 to catch happy hour and their Wednesday night specials. Fantastic prices for delicious drinks and food. The only downside was the length of time it took to get our drinks, we sometimes waited 20 minutes for a glass of wine or a cocktail... unacceptable.
