The place is pretty cool. Food is decent. Our service was great. Great place to catch a game. It was very loud in there though and difficult to have much conversation.

The bar was not stocked with fresh ingredients, the food was overpriced for basic food.

Good Meal at the Ainsworth. We got seated at a tiny, wobbling table and decided to switch to bar seating. Everything went smooth from there. Good food, good drinks.
good niight!

I came to celebrate a special event and was extremely disappointed. Service was poor, drinks took over 30 minutes (margarita served in a pint glass with what I would guess is a premade sour mix) and did not even chance ordering food from here. Would not come back.

Atmosphere and decor are absolutely beautiful! Food was delicious. I had the smashville burger and it had the best flavor of any burger I’ve ever had! Great grilled flavor. We ordered the whipped feta platter for an appetizer and the portion was huge and the flavor of the feta was very very good.

Drinks were amazing but the food didn’t fit the prices and took a while to come out. Seen a lot of food being taken back also. Maybe a bad day for the cook. We could have went to a steakhouse for the price we paid but we just look at it as an experience and a new place to try. I would go back for drinks only.

The food was horrible, fries cold and stale, meat was cooked too long and burnt. Service was bad, we had to ask for silverware or napkins & water refills.

Hostesses super confused about seating. The server seemed overworked and extremely busy. Took 40 minutes for food. I finally just asked for it to go only to get home with severely overcooked bland fried chicken and mediocre waffle. We won't be back.

Never acknowledged my wife’s Birthday. Was a special night for us, but it didn’t matter to the restaurant. Was also seated next to the restroom with a wobbly table to start. Asked to me moved to a better location but was brought casters to put under the table to stop the wobble instead.
Went next door for a nightcap. Better experience and better guest interaction.

Food was so salty!!! Drinks are very skimpy pours. Service was not great. Server told us 90% of their service is to bachelorette parties. If you’re okay with that vibe, this place is fun!

After waiting 20 minutes our server finally came to take our order. The restaurant wasn't even at 60% capacity yet we waited over an hour for chicken and waffles. Our party of four did not receive a refill on water, nor did our waiter check to see if we needed anything after receiving our food. My friends and I will not be returning.

Great food and service. Drinks were terrific. Two drawbacks: the restaurant was hot and we sat right underneath a speaker and it was really loud.

I love this fun spot and will be back.

Came here with my friends yesterday for brunch and three of us got the biscuits and gravy. All three of us had to stop at CVS immediately after brunch for anti-diarrheal medication and flushable wipes. Thankfully, we came here towards the end of our trip, as none of us have been able to leave the restroom since eating said biscuits and gravy. This place ruined our trip and our colons. Do NOT recommend.

server was very rude when I asked how long on the food because it had been an hour of waiting he said “ I’m not the cook “ and other rude comments when I asked very politely . Our food came after an hour and the food was cold . The food runner however was very sweet and apologized for the food taking so long . After we were served We thought our waiter would come so we could get refills because our drinks were empty after an hour of waiting he did not come by till about 12 minutes later and then took an additional 10 more minutes to get our drinks they were all sodas.At the end he was nice but that was after everything that went wrong and he didn’t apologize for the wait or when I had asked him earlier about it he did not apologize for how long it was taking and simply was disrespectful.

Went for Saturday brunch while on a girls trip with friends from college! We had the BEST time - food was great and 20$ bottle of champagne and OJ was a steal! They brought it out with sparklers because we were celebrating it was amazing. There was a DJ so the vibe was great

It was my daughters 21st birthday. The server was not attentive, our drinks were short and the food was cold. We ordered an appetizer that was suppose to come with a sauce and they brought the food with out the sauce. When we asked we were told they were out of the dressing. We couldn’t eat the appetizer because it was plain and dry without the dressing. I feel like if they were out of the dressing the should have first asked if we still wanted the food. I would not go back.

Food took over an hour to come out and waiter wasn’t apologetic at all. Waiter barely checked on us during that hour as well. Thankfully the food was good, but sadly we won’t return due to the service.

30th birthday party. We had the friendliest waiter and she made the birthday girl feel very special. She was very accommodating and took lots of fun photos for us. The food was very yummy! It was a great place to have a birthday celebration. Highly recommend.
