Never going back. Place was virtually empty. Service was terrible. Salad came without dressing and it took asking twice to get some. Dinner was served cold. We weren’t compensated for any of the issues. Birthday dessert came but candles were unavailable. Ugh. Expensive disappointment.

I was very disappointed in the new menu and the quality of the food for the price. This was one of our go-to places in RTC, but we probably won't be going back. The service was poor and slow, which was surprising since it wasn't crowded. Wine selection was very limited and the food just wasn't very good. It's a shame.

Our server was good and the flank steak meal was a great quality. The burger was ok, the ribeye was good, and the steak poutine was mediocre at best. A good poutine would not be served with still cold cheese curds. The curds should be gooey and soft. Dessert was also lackluster. We had both the brownie Sunday (decent and hard to ness up) and the bread pudding (flavorless and blah).

The other problem we had was the way the tables were seated. We were put in a corner booth and then, rather than spread people out as they came in, subsequent tables were seated directly adjacent on both sides.

That would have been fine had the other corner booth party not been incredibly loud. We couldn’t hear our party speaking over the 2 men at the other table. We might as well have been seated together. I now know about the urinals in one office, how well one of the wives cooks and so much more that I might not have heard had the staff not seated both corner booths when there were other booths available.

I would urge you to only seat one corner booth or the other unless you are down to your absolute last open table as acoustically they seem more like one table.

Overall, the value just wasn’t there and we are not likely to return.

Sat outside for a late (8pm) dinner. Food was just ok. Service was terrible and there were very few tables at that time of night on a Tuesday, so I can't even blame the poor service on the fact that they were busy -- because they weren't. First we couldn't get anyone to bring us silverware, then I ordered a drink that never came, and when my dinner did arrive my twice baked potatoe was not cooked once, let alone twice! Dinner was expensive and not worth the price.

Went here for brunch, made an open table reservation and was seated immediately. We had our service dog with us and we got sat in this really cute table with red lounge chairs. Very comfy for my back :)

Mimosa- basic mimosa
Chicken and waffles- wii regular waffles, not the bacon and cheddar. The waffle and the honey butter were soooo good! The fried chicken was a little dry and no flavor.
Eggs biscuits and gravy- amazing!!! This is according to my boyfriend... he's happy for what he got and the price.
Kids chicken tenders and fries- let's say my son didn't share, plus he got cotton candy!

Overall, this was a nice brunch spot.. wasn't busy, but we also came at 130ish.

Terrible. We were seated by a hostess then sat without anyone coming to our table for thirty minutes. I went to the hostess and told her of the situation and she responded “ oh, cool, I’ll find someone “! No apology from anyone in the restaurant. Once a waitress finally came, she was serving a section on the opposite side. I asked about specials and she replied “they don’t apply to this section, only the bar”! I understand this policy but be kind. We then decided to go elsewhere and will never return.

My wife and I dined there for our anniversary. The dinner menu had changed since we last visited in 2014, so we ordered several starters instead of meals.

The crab & spinach dip, Phoenix wings, Brussels sprouts, and salad were excellent. The tap tap shrimp and bread pudding were good, but the cheese curds that came with the chicken poutine were not what we expected. The cheese was barely noticeable.

Our server, Hailey, was outstanding, and the trivia game was fun.

A great experience at America Tap Room...as always. Service was great and unfortunately we had to leave early as a toddler was becoming out of control and we didn't want to inconvenience anyone. Up until the tantrum, everything was fine but the server handled it with grace.

We came in after running the Army 10 miler. My husband ordered the hangover burger without cheese and without ranch. The first burger that was brought out had ranch on it and he asked if he could get a new one to reflect the correct order. When the second burger was brought out it had cheese on it. We were never checked on once the second burger was brought out and it was incorrect again. Very disappointed.

There was a street fair, seating outside was too noisy as was seating inside. Great waiter but order not correct, they forgot fried onions & baked potato, brought mashed potatoes. Meat was good, second wine glass was delivered at the end of my meal, so I refused it.

This used to be my family's favorite restaurant, but the last couple years it has really gone downhill. They changed the menu and the food was not good. They brought back my favorite - crab cakes - but they don't taste anything like the old ones. Also, the new remoulade sauce is awful, and it used to be incredible. Don't know why they messed up a good thing...

Attended Sunday for Mother's Day Dinner with 4 adults and 3 kids (ages 13, 9 & 2). All 6+ parties were all shoved in the back of the restaurant in one space on top of each other. It was crowded and noisy, needlessly. They could have spread out the large parties. The special of the day, the bacon wrapped salmon arrived way too rare. Had to send back. Fish & Chips were too small of portion for adults and very bland. Also, they were out of milk and apple juice. Thankfully a manager went to another restaurant to buy more. For Kids desserts: out of gummy worms and then no whipped cream or cherries on top of Sundaes. Bread pudding was terrible. Won't be returning.

This is a good beer/ sports bar. The menu is varied if you want just appetizers, a salad or an entree. They have TV's throughout to watch sports. I had a salad with shrimp which was good, and my mom had the jambalaya which was also good and it had a spicy kick to it. I loved the pretzel appetizer with the three dipping sauces. The icing was was the best! We shared the bread pudding dessert. I would have liked a little sauce with it though, it was a little dry for my taste. The service was great. Anthony, our waiter, was always on top of things and couldn't have been nicer. I would recommend it if you want a nice casual meal.
