Value was great for a family of five.
The restaurant was a great place to meet our grandson who attends Villanova. Two of us are gluten free and the variety of foods from which we could select was much appreciated. Convenient parking garage meant no parking nightmares.
Food,drinks, and servers were great
The interior needs a facelift. My seat was ripped and something would occasionally drip from the ceiling which had duct tape on it.
Enjoyed the flatbread & sangria from the fall menu!
We dined with our daughter and had a wonderful experience. We were seated promptly, had an attentive waitress and the meals were fresh and delicious!! The butternut squash flatbread was large and delicious. The tuna poke bowl and pork special were also great. I had an lovely rose and my husband enjoyed the Octoberfest on tap and my daughter the Fall Sangria! Samantha was excellent as well!! Kudos, we will be back...
Food was delicious as always. Server was a bit overwhelmed as they were short staffed. Surprised there wasn't a lunch menu or smaller portions for lunch. A bit steep at $60 plus tip for 2 entrees, 1 dessert and no drinks.
Amazing. The service was incredible and the food so delicious
Good bar-type food. We ate outside on the second story deck. It drizzled, and the umbrellas didn't really cover the seating. Otherwise, the food and service was very good. Nothing special, but well-prepared, tasty dinners.
Great service, great starters, but would have liked more options in the entrees.
Waitress/Server was very polite and accurate. Food options were plentiful and the food was pretty good.
Service was slow but very friendly!
Had a 7pm reservation, hoping for outdoor dining. Arrived 2 hours earlier than reservation and requested outside seating, but was denied, with manager noting that those tables were “reserved “. Settled for indoor dining. Observed NUMEROUS empty outdoor tables during the 70 minutes spent at restaurant! I believe the manager could have made a little more effort to accommodate our request for outside seating.
Chicken was over cooked - disappointing ☹️
This restaurant needs to be mindful of the idea that people don't want to spend 1.5-2 hours at lunch. I've had multiple experiences here for business meetings that have dragged on with awkward conversation because our server had forgotten all about us. Not wanting to appear impatient or rude in front of a client, I was unable to do much about it. I really think management needs to do better here. I won't be going back.
The bread they served was not hot or even warm and did not seem fresh. The bread was not exactly stale but close to it. The top 2 pieces of bread were sort of OK. The pieces underneath looked like they had been smashed with a rolling pin or something, and were hard and stale. The dip was OK . Pizza was so salty I couldn’t eat it. The sauce tasted like it came from a can. The crust was flabby. Sever never came around until my husband was mostly finished with his dinner so I couldn’t even tell him. There really wasn’t time to re-order at that point. Husband’s dinner looked burnt and wasn’t hot. It was also too salty but he ate it. My salad was good except server told me they were “out of vinegar” and he had to “go find some”. Long wait but he did find some. Table was sticky. Yuk. Very terrible experience. Not going back. It’s a shame because the food has always been really good in the past. Not sure what’s happened but this restaurant has really gone downhill in just about every way. They did take the pizza off the bill.
Great outdoor dining - perfect for a family
Came in for quick lunch. Shamar our server was excellent! Impossible burger and meatloaf are a must have. Restaurant was light which allowed for us to also enjoy the music. Good food and service coming back soon. Paid tab online which was extra cool and easy
The cheesesteak rolls were salty and they were out of both of the beers I drink
Good food and good service. Our waiter was very good.
Our dinner was fine, nothing special. More average than not.
Server was really nice and professional.
It was my first time there, was recommended by my daughter, Service was outstanding and the food was very good, I will definitely recommend it to my friends and other people.
Not Your Average Joe’s seems average these days. Nice water and good service.
The food was very good and our server, Nicole, was fantastic!
I love this place good food
Consistently great food and service
Service was great. Food was just okay. It was very dark in the restaurant.
Definitely average. The outdoor deck was nice but there were no heat lamps and it was pretty chilly . Most ppl dining outside were shivering like us . Service was fine and we were greeted warmly and seated promptly. My husband got fish and chips and I got the simply salmon and greens which was overcooked and dry despite asking for it to be medium. Not a lot of options for special diets however they do have a gluten sensitive menu .
Food was good but after our mains, the bartender handed us the check. We planned on ordering dessert and more drinks but I guess she wanted to go home.
Better than average! Good neighborhood spot
Family took me out for my birthday
Beautiful outdoor deck on roof! Service and food were terrific. Super-fresh salmon was perfectly cooked. Server was terrific.
Went there during parents weekend at my sons college and was not disappointed. Food was fresh and service fine.
Great gluten-free options
Could use more service personnel. A little slow
Great variety of food, wonderful staff, awesome atmosphere
Loved it!! Me and my guests will be returning soon!!
All was good! However , the hostess offered to move us to a less windy table outside. She said she would move us. She never returned and another hostesssested a couple there!
Our server was amazing!
