    We actually frequent Balter quite a bit. It's occasionally a little hit and miss but for the most part, it's pretty solid... Even when not it's best I don't think it's ever been bad in the last few years. Today was the best service we've ever had. We sat at the bar. The bar stools are kind of rough though very hard and wobbly. We almost quit going during covid though because we got a couple of deliveries that were really really bad... But I'm very happy to report that over the last 2 years in particular I think that the food quality has really improved and much better reflects the price point. Great beer selections and solid mixed drinks and wine pours.

    Our server was the best! Everything tasted great and the beer is so fresh. The guacamole is delicious. My only suggestion is to make better sticky rice for the poke bowl. If you stick to their basics you won’t go wrong.

    Service was great & that’s the best I can say for this restaurant. We had the worst margaritas we’ve ever had (and yes, we know it’s a beer place but they had a full bar). Fish & chips were overcooked. Fish in fish tacos had little taste. We wanted to love it but likely won’t go back.

    Ordered the nachos and check menu for ingredients and I said nothing about cilantro. Nachos came out with a huge pile of cilantro. Server was very understanding and had them re made, and they where great. Ordered burgers no tomato and onion with double fries and got tomatoes and onions on the burgers and fries and coleslaw not a big enough of an issue to send back. Burger where amazing, fries are perfect. I wish the menu had cilantro warnings on foods. FYI the Pico is he heavy with cilantro as well.

    I was sad they’d ran out of their special (corned beef) but the food was still good. I’d love to see beef stroganoff (which was also a special at one time) put on the menu as a permanent option!

    We walked in early and forgot about checking in with our reservation. Previous imbibements prior to coming to restaurant May have scrambled my brain a bit. Sorry. But by the time we left the noise was almost unbearable. Please use some deadening! Thx.

    Our server was fantastic, upbeat, great smile and checked on us just the right amount of times. He had excellent recommendations. I had the Grilled Chicken Sandwich and my husband had the Brewhouse Burger. We each enjoyed our sandwiches. We weren't able to finish them and saved room for dessert. Our server recommended the Pumpkin Cheesecake and it didn't disappoint.
