Server friendly. Efficient but didn’t rush us to order.
Best iced tea I’ve ever consumed. Pinstripes cooked salmon to perfection. Outstanding!

The only positive experience of this visit was my wife's veggie burger which she said was tasty. The service was terrible and we were seated by the bar where the employees enter and pick up orders. Our waitress seemed like she truly disliked us and for 2 burgers and a kids meal we paid over $80. Never again

We were pleasantly surprised how delicious our food was. Bread and pesto starter was divine as was the rest of our food. Will go back!

Restaurant service was slow and awkward
Bowling was very substandard. We had the only lane with a table which we had to share with another party, instead of couches. The lane was not performing well and took a long time to reset each frame, causing a slow pace and only allowing us to complete one game in an hour. Also our bowling balls randomly did not get returned to us, which was a problem since someone in our group brought his own bowling ball. A waiter came to our area and took all our water glasses when we were still using them, and tried to pour all the water from the glasses back into the tiny opening in the bottle, spilling it all over the place and then wiping it onto the floor over all of our shoes.

Felt rushed the entire night. Server was unable to properly transfer the special from our dinner table to our bowling table. Server did not come back with silverware for the desert.

We had a manager seat us and he was friendly, sat us in a booth along a wall. Our server, Gabriel, was funny / entertaining, but didn't intrude on our meal. We loved our food! Tried the bruschetta for the first time, along with soup and the spaghetti and meatballs. Everything was very filling and full of flavor! I may recommend that during lunch hours, you don't sit near the bar well, unless you would like to be apart of the servers' conversation. Our booth backed along the wall leading the the bar, and the "window" doesn't have any glass or anything to stop carry over noise. We could have been apart of any conversation if we wanted to - in which case we may have just sat at the bar top. Again, everything was delicious and everyone was very hospitable!

With the December price increase I expected a "more than usual" menu. Really not worth the increase. Nothing extra. Nothing special.
Brunch is always good, with good choices. No need for increase.

Food always good, service can be hit or miss. They were busy due to group holiday lunches and appeared to be understaffed. If you’re not in a rush it’s ok. Gave waiter check with our cards and took him 10 minutes to get back to us. We were on our lunch hour. Enjoy in summer with outdoor patio. Service was better.

We never went, as they cancelled our reservation (which we made three days before) two hours before it was due because someone had just hired the whole place. I understand it’s better business for them to have the whole place full rather than a few tables, but to cancel on such short notice is not good customer service. There wasn’t even a hint of some offer to compensate for the inconvenience, even just a free soda next time would at least shown some thoughtfulness. Very disappointing.

Half price wine on Friday nights is a value. Beware if the jambalaya. It us blackened chicken and shrimp resulting in a dry and overly seasoned protein. But prime rib dip is worth the drive.

I always have a great experience at this place. My lunch companion had the salad and flatbread lunch combo and really liked it. I had the salad and soup combo. The lobster bisque was SO delicious. It was and endless bowl. Oh, how I wish I had room for a second helping. But I couldn’t do it. Our server was very attentive without interrupting us while we were catching up. We paid only $16 each including tip. We thought that was a great value. I wish they’d had more servers and umbrellas for their outdoor seating. It was a very nice day but there was no table with an umbrella available. I’ll be back!
