Amazing service, great ambiance, and incredible food! We were here for a birthday and had a large group that ordered all sorts of different menu items. There wasn’t a single thing I wouldn’t order again, all fresh and flavorful and delicious!

Sad atmosphere, fine service, poor value for food vs. cost. Food poorly presented & tiny portions.

The food was delicious! 6 of us shared a bunch of different items, We really loved the kangaroo burger and also the beet burger was super tasty. The fries were crispy and yummy. We got the sausage sampler so we ate 6 different kinds of sausages, fun to sample things like rattlesnake, alligator, wild boar, duck, elk, venison, etc.

The waiter was friendly and nice, but forgot to bring several of our drinks, and wasn't very knowledgeable about the menu.

The ambiance leaves something to be desired, probably the lightweight metal chairs scraping on the concrete floor. We were there on a Tuesday, it wasn't that full, and it was very loud!

Great all around. Very attentive staff, all friendly. The food was great. Highly recommend all the boar products! We did the sampler platter and some happy hour tacos and oysters. I would go there again or eat at their food trucks! Highly recommend!

1st visit to this neighborhood gem - will be back! Food was excellent, service was great, and I can't wait for the brewery next door to open (first week of March 2019). It does get loud inside, but that's part of the charm of the place. Great neighborhood find.

We dined here for the first time on Valentine's Day and the service was subpar at best and that ruined our entire experience. We arrived, with a reservation made in advance, were seated, and then proceeded to wait over 15 minutes to be served. We were about to leave when our server finally appeared, YELLED at us that it wasn't her fault she hadn't gotten to us, brought a pitcher of water and then didn't come back for another 10 minutes. We order our drinks and a pair of appetizers and waited another 20 minutes for them before our server was finally able to take our order and fail to fill our water. We waited another 30 minutes for our dinner, all of this time with no attention from our server. The food is this places only saving grace and was thankfully good. By the time this 'dining experience' was over we had no more evening plans left. I would recommend Barbed Wire Reef for take out and that is it.

ALSO: the Kaffir Lime drink could use another name like Makrut Lime. Google the word Kaffir and that will shine some light on the menu department's lack of research.

We stopped in for dinner and I had the ahi tuna sandwich. I skipped the bread but had the fish and the slaw on the side and it was amazing! The fish was just seared as it should be and the slaw as a delicious combination of red cabbage with a tasty dressing - not sweet and heavy like some slaws. We also had the sweet potato truffle fries - the serving is huge - we shared it between three of us. The fries were just the right amount of crunchy and fluffy. For drinks I had the Ricco Suave - a refreshing twist on a margarita that was just the right amount of tart and sweet. We will be back!

We went for a birthday. We had 9 people so it was a bigger party but the service was still amazing. I forget her name. I choose to go there because I had the piggy fries from the food truck and they were amazing. I got them there and they were not the same. The burgers were so thin and so dry. Nobody got the burgers cooked the way they asked. I was so disappointed because I loved it when I had it from the food truck. I probably wouldn’t go back.
