Family of five out for an early Friday dinner. We sat at a high top in the bar area. Service was A+, friendly, timely, and she went above and beyond when one of our kids asked for a off-menu banana milkshake. Noise was perfect for a casual dinner, enough happy talk and bustle that our boisterous game of hangman didn’t disturb any other tables. We love Kaelin’s!

Really good food at a very reasonable price! I took two friends who were visiting from NYC and Lake Tahoe…..they loved the burger and fried cod fish, French fries and onion rings AND the Brussels Sprouts!

Food and service was good. We’re regulars there. I’ve learned to not stray too far from the burgers. However, I did try the wings and they were good. Wedge salad is very small for the $9 price tag. Nick was a wonderful server and the highlight of the evening.

Came back here after ~30 years.
The service was excellent, right from the hostess, to the person waiting our table, to the owner, who came around more than a couple of times to check on our needs.
Burgers were good, cooked well, and presented well too. Can't complain about the cocktails and beer list. The Kolsch beer, brewed specially by Apocalypse Brew Works is very good.

The fried chicken at the other table looked very good.

A definite revisit.

We had dinner on the second floor and we were next to a long table full of high school ladies. While our dinner was good the noise level and service level may have been impacted with this large group. We will give 80/20 another chance.

Loved loved the place! Food was awesome. Made reservations and was even better on time. Service was very very slow. It was due to waitress waiting on two other big parties and each person in those group had to check out with handheld device which delayed our service way to long other wise great place!

We had a reservation for a Saturday night and it wasn’t crowded. Seated promptly. Nick our server was awesome. He made me the best margaritas. We all ordered burgers and they were cooked perfectly and were amazing. Highly recommend the 80/20 burger on the pretzel bun. Best burger I’ve ever had. We sat upstairs and it was quite noisy. They might need some acoustic panels up there. All in all, a great night and highly recommend.

Visited with a party of four for lunch and enjoyed the visit overall. Staff is well trained and able to handle a packed house with relative ease it seemed. I tried the shrimp scampi for the first time and was not overly impressed. Lacked taste. Pulled pork was good but relied too much on sauce for taste. Burger was fine. Best part of the meal was the Brussel sprouts with bacon. Mixed drinks and tip added up to close to $90 for lunch!
