The food was great and service was fast. The tables were spaced out well enough and the server wore a mask and gloves which was good. The only minor complaint is music choice. A lot of the songs were just uncomfortable to hear when sitting down for a nice dinner. However, this is the first time with this complaint and I’ve been here about 4 times before, so I will definitely still come here. It was probably a one time thing.

I had been here before for brunch and had a good time so anticipated it would be a good date night option. Unfortunately, the food wasn’t as food as I remembered and there wasn’t much variety. The place looks cute if you sit in the main dining area, but it looks like all the two seaters are in the front where you get cold every time the door opens. The service was underwhelming for the price.

Coronavirus policies were very relaxed. A lot of people left without wearing masks and going to the bathroom without one on. Will not be going back. The mint salad however was delicious.

As a host in a fine dining restaurant I know how important it is to have guest follow their allotted time period for reservations but I haven’t seen my friend in so long so we were catching up and stayed for a little over our time period but we were not rushed out and I appreciated that. The food was DELICIOUS! The music was great, the vibes were great I give The Ainsworth a 10/10 . I was itching for brunch for the longest so thank you to the staff for giving me everything I needed and more for the best brunch experience!!!

I was celebrating a friend’s birthday. The menu was basically finger foods which wasn’t to bad. I enjoyed the wings and the mac and cheese was delicious. The music was great. There are a lot if young staff so they was playing hip hop and rock (I think that what is was). My only complaint which is not really a complaint is the drinks are weak. $15 per drink for not even a little buzz and our server must was new because she kept saying she needed to ask about the simple questions we asked her.

Overall we had a great time and I would visit again especially when the weather warm up because it’s right next to a pier.

I had an amazing time Celebrating my 4 year Wedding Anniversary there! The food was FANTASTIC and our server, Laura, was AMAZING!!! She made sure that everything was done with flash and even put sparklers in our Golden Flaked wings and Cheesecake. She even comped my wife and I a bottle of Champagne as an anniversary gift!!!! I would recommend this place to ANYONE as their level of service and professionalism is unmatched!!!! I will definitely be going again!!!

Vegetarian food at this establishment isn’t great. Also, we had to move our table because someone from the apartment building above was throwing beer bottles, caps, and solo cups down and hitting us with them. The waiter completely forgot about us as a result, and it took a long time to wrap up our meal. I won’t return.

The music in this location on the day visited was really good. We expected more food options, but the menu was pretty limited. Overall food was okay, ambiance was really nice for a casual date night.

The reason why I chose this place was to enjoy a long night, but they now are closing early and if you want to stay for more drinks you better leave early a find a another place with capacity!

Food wasn’t that great it was ok depending on what you order the skirt steak was extremely chewy meaning it wasn’t cooked correctly, and the gold wings are just for the look it is not worth the price on a tasting standpoint the regular bbq wings taste better than that. Overall not a bad experience but the food needs some work.

Not sure how the food was because we left before ordering. Service was slow. Brought one drink and never came back with the other. Didn’t know who our server was, multiple people came to table. Music was SO loud. Impossible to have a conversation - and it was crap music at that! Not going back ever.

We went for brunch. It was nothing spectacular but for french toast and omelets it was fine and reasonable. Location is great if you want to go for a walk before or after your meal, give it a try.

the music was too loud, we asked it be turned down a bit..... not much change occurred.
ironically as we were leaving the restaurant the music was shut off.... too little too late. Right place, right spot, average experience at best.

The service was very very slow. They ran out of bloody mary mix on a sunday and the restaurant wasn't even full. I love the food here and really enjoy eating here in the summer. I'm guessin that since I visited in the winter they they may have been understaffed... The waitress was very nice and we liked her, but she may have had too many tables on this particular day.
