My family and I had amazing service by our server, Devin. Not only did he provide us with recommendations on the best drinks to get, but he engaged us into friendly conversation. The atmosphere of our igloo was so beautiful and cozy.

We were moved once because the 1st igloo had no heat. The waiter did a horrible job at keeping us informed on when the kitchen closed and bar closed... he literally brought us water and never came back until 10 before the kitchen and bar closed rushing us to order. Once we received our food everything was going good until the lights in the igloo shut off. The waiter came over and accused us of unplugging something only to find out the breaker was tripped. We sat In The cold with no lights for 20-30 min trying to finish our food because they was trying to rush us out of the igloo so they wouldn’t have to accommodate or addressed there problems. I personally wouldn’t recommend this place to my Worst enemy so that should tell you how I feel about this place and there service

The experience I got was not as advertised online. Upon arrival, the space heater in our igloo was not on. We asked the hostess about it when she seated us, and she responded “We’ve bee having trouble with the space heaters. Let me ask my manager about it.” A manager, nor anyone else, ever came back to assist with it. It flickered on for approximately five minutes and did not work the rest of the time. Our waiter was initially very rude. He also came to take our drink orders, came back thirty minutes later with no drinks and said he forgot what our orders were. We didn’t have drinks until approximately 45 minutes to an hour after our arrival. The igloos themselves were not as advertised. Nothing was wrong with them, but they were nowhere near as elegant as they looked online. The minimum spend amounts are not clear based on the description on the website. I called to clarify, and no one answered. I left a message with my phone number, and never received a call back. Regardless of which minimum spend amount applies to your reservation, the experience you get is certainly not worth the amount you pay. I would not reserve again.

My friends and I had such a great experience. The igloos were super cool and very cozy. Natalie, our server, was the best! The crab cakes, greens, and buffalo wings were delicious!

We had a reservation at 7:15pm at 8upIG. This was promoted to be a warm igloo and it was by far NOT! Beautiful of course.... but operated by one small single space heater. When I asked why they would not have more to heat the igloo in the cold weather, I was advised that because they had a power outage when they used different heaters. We were so cold we asked to be moved inside and of course we were accommodated. After moving inside we wait and waited to get a menu or anything and never got anything so we left! It's like the waiters just completely forgot about us. It was my first and last time at 8UP and was a total BUST! Ruined my entire night!

We had a great time. Matthew was excellent. Kale Queso, Brussel Sprouts, Caesar Salas, Chickpea Sandwich & Brisket pizza were all delicious. The pecan old-fashioned was really good. The iglou was fun & a unique way to spend a winter evening. The only bummer - the snow machines weren’t operating.

Great experience in on the rooftop in the winter. The igloos were awesome, greatly decorated.

Katlyn was amazing and had fun with our group. Thanks for making our night so enjoyable!

When booking on OpenTable it does not say anything about a $500 minimum for two hours. Since there were 8 of us it was ok but I was slightly annoyed. The service was ok. We had to ask for things several times before we’d get them. Also they use the term “heated” VERY loosely. We had to keep on our jackets and use the blankets to be comfortable. It was fun because it was something different and I’d recommend doing it but I’d tell people to dress warm!

The event coordinator, Michael (?), went above and beyond to make the experience enjoyable for us. He succeeded. We were passing through town and this restaurant was recommended. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and service. Both were excellent. We discussed how this would be a great place for a group of people, and the igloos would be a perfect atmosphere for a social gathering of friends. Highly recommend!
