    Professional: Caitlin our server was so very helpful and informative about the menu and drinks. She made sure to ask questions regarding allergies and preferences. She wasn't afraid to ask the chef for information. Over all if you're looking for a simple date night with a wide menu you won't be disappointed. Professionalism, cleanliness, and respect for guests is clearly on the top of the staffs agenda. Personal side: We were delayed on our desert choice due to a simple mistake between servers and runners. We were totally fine with paying for the desert even with the delay. However Caitlin made sure we were comped the difference and was super kind. Complaint: I can only say that sitting next to the door to the backyard on either side of the section behind the bar was not ideal. The door opening and closing was distracting and the high traffic had me worried my chair was in the way. (It wasn't but still)

    The hostesses and waitstaff are not polished. I expected more. I had to ask for a drink menu. Our table was too small for our food. We were seated right next to another couple when there was plenty of open tables. The one we preferred wasn’t set yet. We used it for the salt and pepper. For this price point, parking should be free, at least discounted. The valet staff were not welcoming either.

    Very friendly, helpful service staff. We ordered three appetizers. The eggs were bland, the oysters were very small ( too small), but the crab dip and chips were really good. The tenderloin was cooked perfectly and was very tender. Unfortunately the chicken fried steak was way over cooked, but the manager replaced and comped them. All in all, I hope this was just one of those nights but definitely below my expectations.

    We tried 97 west after a disappointing evening a year ago and again were disappointed. Service was terribly slow with our appetizer taking over 25 minutes for chips and queso. Chips were stale. I had the ribs and they were like warm and old tasting. My wife had the Parmesan salad aka Caesar with tons of cheap parm and very little lettuce with dry chicken.

    Absolutely love the ambience in this restaurant! We had a table facing the patio with a gorgeous view. My husband ordered the chicken fried steak, and the gravy was the best I’ve had! I ordered a hamburger, but can’t remember exactly what was on it. However, it was fabulous! Would’ve loved to of had breakfast there, but didn’t wake up in time. Wish they would offer breakfast all day. Thanks for a great time!
