Although the location and setting is great there is no comparison to the brunch at 1149 in East Greenwich. If I didn't have the experience in Ea Greenwich I would say the brunch was good.
I had a gift certificate which is why I went. If you like the taste of bad grease, this might be up your alley. Even the omlet made to order tasted like nothing but grease. Even the mimosa wasn't drinkable as it tasted like it was made with sour (outdated) orange juice. And the ambiance, felt like I was visiting a restaurant from decades past. Glad I didn't pay for the meal as I didn't eat much of it.
Food was good but not has hot as I would have liked. It appeared that staff was short handed although other than having to deal with many guests, you never would have known! Great deal for a breakfast brunch.
Went for brunch on 3/12/17...made reservations ....they seated us immediately...the waiter was friendly, informative, and knowledgable...the food on the buffet was plentiful, hot, and fresh....the selection was good and omelets were made to order...they made a mistake on my friends' omelet...the waiter apologized and promptly replaced it to the friends' satisfaction....totally positive experience...would not hesitate to rebook and go again tomorrow if the situation should arrise.
The buffet was less than advertised on line and was somewhat confusing in lay out and presentation, overall not very impressed
We went for the brunch the servers were very inattentive. The meats at the carving station were all over cooked and dry. Not much selection overall.
Really enjoyed the Mother's Day brunch. Nice job!
We went for the Mothers Day buffet. I was very impressed with the fact that we had a 2:00 reservation,
and were seated promptly at 2:00. For anyone who dines out on Mothers Day, you know how huge that
is! The buffet was great. They didn't miss a thing. They had something to keep every one happy, even
the pickiest of eaters. The Waite staff were all pleasant, friendly, and helpful. Which isn't always how
things go on a busy holidays. All in all I was very happy with the whole experience. I will look forward to
dinning there again, and recommend it highly to any looking for a place to take there family for a holiday.
We've come for Easter and Mother's Day brunches here. Our children love buffets - no wait, many choices. We like being able to please them yet still enjoy quality food ourselves. Love that the seating areas are spacious, and table service is great. Very pleasant and satisfying choice for families on special occasions when cooking may be inconvenient. All experiences here have been very, very positive. Prompt seating, delicious food, friendly, efficient service.
My family and I had a great Mother's Day Brunch at 1149 East in Seekonk...
The food selection as always was tremendous. And delicious!
I heard they will be closing May 31. I plan on making one final trip there as I was there for the grand opening some 6 years ago.
The menu was small and over priced. We tried it because we had the restaurant.com coupon. We would only go back if we had another coupon otherwise it is too overpriced. We had reservations for 6:30 and got there for 6. Asked the hostess if we could be seated earlier and she told us no we had to wait for our reservation when you could clearly see there were empty tables which was fine. So she suggested we have a drink in the bar area so we did. Bartender was very nice and we enjoyed a couple of cocktails there. We also asked if we would be called when our table was ready and we were told yes however that was not the case. We weren't seated until 7pm which also made us late for our restervations we had elsewhere for a comedy show after dinner
We arrived early and sat at the bar, bartender was great, drinks were fantastic. We were seated, the waiter was friendly and prompt, however, we ordered the calamari and waited 45 minutes for it to come out. We were about to leave and were talking to the manager and the appetizer came out, so we stayed. The Dinner and appetizers were worth the wait.
I had enjoyed the Sunday Brunch buffet previously but it is getting old. The waitress provided terrible service. In a buffet setting all she had to take care of was the drinks and she was not even capable of that. The food was not a good temperature. The carving station meats were dry. The staff cooking the omelets burned a couple of them, mine and the one that actually caught on fire that he had to recook. I did enjoy the chowder but not enough to pay $25 per person to enjoy. I will not be returning.
This was my second time to the 1149 Bar & Grill Seekonk for the Sunday Brunch. Everything was tasty, but first pass a little disappointed because they weren't keeping up with the replenishing of the trays and the end portions were cold. Omelet line was long until they got some extra help. Other than that the overall food experience was good.
We went for brunch. The food was good, the presentation just so so. Found it confusing,also the carving station and omlet station much to close to one of the tables, the hostess was going to seat us there but we refused. Speaking of the hostess, found her alright,but somewhat lacking in personality and found her attire just too casual. She looked like she was a customer not a hostess. Our waiter was very good.
Great food! Great Appetizers! Great Atmosphere! 1149 did not disappoint. The portions were more than adequate and very flavorful. There were a variety of options to choose on the menu for every taste. The wait staff was very attentive without being overbearing. This is how a restaurant experience should be.
Very good food from a limited menu vs. the original 1149, but far better than the "titled" bar & grill.
Our waiter was excellent and very attentive.
we were not very impressed, every trip to the buffet their were never plates, the three times i went looking for shrimp their was no cocktail sauce, our seating was for 3;00 but we did'nt seat til 3;45, at that time they were out of clam chowder and apple crisp, seemed like they were overwelmed. never the less we love the 1149 for dinner, food is always very good..
Went for Easter Brunch, great food, crowded and noisy but that is expected for the holiday. We go every year, love the menu just wish they would change it up just a little year to year.
Very nice experience, as always. Only minor negative was crowding. Difficult to get in and out of the table - we were backed up to the omelette station. All servers with whom I interacted were really personable!
There were (5) of us that have been involved in various businesses for over 40 years. We try to get together every couple of years to catch up and reminisce. Thank you very much for your hospitality. We found your restaurant to be a very nice experience.
Our family went for Sunday brunch and, as always, enjoyed ourselves immensely. I had called ahead and indicated that this was a special occasion and we were treated like royalty. I can't thank all of the staff enough! In fact, even those who worked the "stations" (omelet, carving, etc.) were fun and wonderful. I booked our Mother's Day reservation for our family before we left the restaurant.
There is more than enough to choose from when you have Brunch. It does not matter if you are a veggie lover or meat eater, the options are overwhelming! There is a selection of hot foods such as breakfast staples of french toast, potatoes, bacon and sausage as well a made to order omlets. Don't forget the bakery station with an assortment of pasteries and bagles....... belgian waffles, soup and main dishes for the lunch lovers as well.
I think they need to decide if it is going to be a upper scale or more of a pub atmosphere found it kind of dark and dreary. The bar side was busy
Excellent with personable wait staff.
We went to 1149 early on a Saturday evening (5 PM) . We had a reservation and although there were no more than 4 tables with people seated at them, we were shown to the very back of the restaurant in a separate room from everyone else. It was dark and dreary.I asked the young hostess if we could be seated out front near the window but was told the tables were all very small tables. NOT true!
Nevertheless, we stayed and were very nicely taken care of by Matt our server who saved the dining experience. The drinks and food were great. He was friendly and knowledgeable.
But next time we will go to the 1149 in Warwick, RI.
While my Girlfriend And I had A Wonderful Meal with Exceptional Service There were A few Things that Bothered Me About 1149. We ordered n Appetizer Of coconut Shrimp That cost about 7 Bucks and Received 6 pieces of shrimp. To me That is A bit steep. On Top of That I ordered A full Rack of Ribs And half Of My rack was bone try To The point i Could not swallow without a Drink. Finally, the Room was So Dim it seemed Like it Made it difficult to See. Setting The mood is One thing, but this Setting was A Bit Much.
Unacceptably long wait to get food. Waiter apologized numerous times. Said kitchen had to get out 55 dinners for a party.
Don't waste your time nor money. Just keep driving. Requested NOT to have a table in the middle of the dining room. Well that's exactly where we got seated, right in the middle. Drinks were good and also the buffalo chicken nachos. Things seemed to be looking up right? Wrong! The chicken Cacciatore was loaded with chicken bones. The chicken parm was mush, Matched the pasta. Had to yell across the table because the band at the other end of the restaurant was so loud you couldn't carry a conversation at the table. We all thought it was Karaoke night it was so bad. I can check this place off the list as been there done that and never again.
There was a good selection of food for brunch. However, the layout didn't make sense. Also, the person running the omlet station kept burning them. The restaurant smelled of burned eggs the entire time. I asked my waitress to have him make me another. 30 minutes later I saw it being made and was told the delay was due to having to blanch more brocoli. Couldn't someone have told me that? I told them to forget it all together. There are better places for brunch!
Everything we had was outstanding!Drinks were generous. I had steak frites, The meat was cooked to perfection and the frites were thin and crispy but not greasy. My guest had fish and chips and as the waiter described it, the fish was fresh and very lightly battered. Service and overall experience was very, very good.
Double check the location of your reservation. Opentable mistakingly reserved at Seekonk and not Warwick. We were not aware until we arrived at the restaurant. Luckily the hostess was able to accommodate us.
The pitcher of Sangria was delicious and good value.
Dining room noisier than usual but considering it was a Saturday night, that's to be expeccted. The blackened tilapia, chilean sea bass special and coconut shrimp all received thumbs up from our table. The desserts (carrot cake and chocolate lava cake) were delightful i.e. they came in shot glasses, so no need to feel guilty. The only negative was the service. Our server was inattentive resulting in lengthy periods of time waiting for him to appear.
We went here for brunch. The food is OK. Nothing outstanding, but nothing bad either and a good variety. The problem with most brunches is that the restaurant has to appeal to the masses, resulting in bland food. Some notable items were the smoked salmon, the custom made omelets and the apple crisp. I also feel for what the brunch offers it is a bit over priced.
We do go here for an early dinner on occasion and sit at the bar. Excellent value and food with the specials.
Service was excellent food was good not great for 120. Bill. Table was awful felt like we were in a corridor at a very small table . Ok experience but for my birthday I wish we had picked someplace else : (
Good food, Good service. A bit expensive but definitely worth it! Would recommend!
We had a great experience, nice place, great service and the food was a bit pricey but good. Would recommend to friends.
The manager on duty ruined this special valentine's dining expereince. I will never dine here again nor will I ever recommend this restaurant to anybody.
