Very nice neighborhood restaurant. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Our food was delicious and particularly enjoyed the special touch of general manager coming over and being attentive to any of our needs or desires. Fun night and will come back to try other items on the menu.

Food was average. The hamburger was not as good as one I had on Sunday at B&B Butcher. Onion rings were soggy. Service was good. It was a Monday night so the place was empty. May try again but really not impressed

Decent food, portions are filling but not bloating. Atmosphere is what you would expect based on exterior appearances, pleasant with nice outside seating.

The service wasn’t great and the restaurant and bathrooms smelled like sewage. We were there for a long time and got bottles of wine and we always had to pour our glasses. They very rarely came to check on us.

Very casual place with good food and excellent service (Dominique). But it gets very loud with full house. Same problem that previous restaurant had.

Cute place. Smallish and tables are very close. Crab beignets were good. We had the scallops and the snapper and both were delicious. Good wine selection and great service. Would definitely go back.

Fabulous
Took my sister in law there and I had the blue cheese burger / cooked perfectly to medium rare. She had the hamburger lunch special .. cooked fabulous ..

She was unfamiliar with the restaurant and works next to the cvs across the street

My only statement .. i was a bit confused about the parking and entrance. A sign stating entrance in the front like the Neighboring business has would be beneficial!

Overpriced for the food. Service was accommodating and friendly but promises such as "you won't pay for this drink" weren't kept, when drink was not good. Food was just ok. I expected much more from this place. Fries came soggy underneath the fish for the fish and chips. The burger was good but not outstanding. Desserts were ok, but again, not outstanding. I guess I needed to adjust my expectations. I overall will not be back.

Be sure to make a reservation, even if it’s five minutes before you get there. Otherwise the hostess will tell you they are booked (even when they aren’t) and seat you in the bar or outside. This happened to us, so we sat in one of two high tops in the bar. Almost every table inside was empty, quite a few for the entire time we were there. We checked Open Table as soon as we sat down, and they had every time block available. We reserved for fifteen minutes later, with no problem. I don’t really understand this. The service in the bar was excellent, very attentive and friendly. The food was just okay, with the best being the pork schnitzel (although the icky spaetzle on the top of it detracted from the dish) and worst being a rock-hard, cold brownie in the dessert. There was nothing to warrant a return trip, unless it’s for a beer at the bar.

We went for the first time tonight for my husband's birthday dinner. Our waiter's name William and he was wonderful and attentive. We had a great time. A little mix up with our appetizer, but the manger was very apologetic even though we were fine with what happened. The food was wonderful and delicious.

Waitress wasn’t knowledgeable about menu or dietary concerns... often absent... which is odd on a Sunday night when restaurant was fairly empty... drinks were good food was hearty and comforting.. hit the spot.. loved the popcorn... oysters could have been chilled... were a tad warm... overall I’ll be back..

Really enjoyed yet another successful BB restaurant. Food and atmosphere were great. Service was very good too. Really reasonably priced. Lobster roll was yummy (slaw was fab!) and the mac & cheese was delicious too!

A nicer TGI Fridays. We probably will not go back...

I am excited to have a new place in Montrose, but not a place that is so noisy.
Fish and chips were average. Wine prices are reasonable for the small but diverse list. Server was knowledgeable about obscure cocktail ingredients.

The establishment was very easy on the eyes. We were promptly greeted and seated. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and explained the menu consistently. Food’s taste was on spot and presented likewise. Very grateful for the first responders deal. Me and my fellow firefighters talked up your service and how grateful we were for your generosity. Thank you again. See you soon.

Mediocre experience. menu is varied, burgers to seafood and comfort food. We ordered fish dishes which were good. The server wasn’t familiar with preparation of the Mediterranean snapper as one of us asked if it had olives which it did, he told us it didn’t so she wasn’t able to eat it when it came. Dinner salad is average and server seemed unsure of dressing choices. We had barely started on the salads when the entrees were brought out.
They put a small bowl of popcorn on the table upon arrival and continue to refill it. I guess this is supposed to be in place of offering bread
Overall no reason to go back.

I only recently checked B.B. Lemon out and have only been there for happy hour but I thought the food was REALLY good! I had the pulled pork sliders, bacon jalepeno mac and cheese and fries. I am pretty picky about all the food mentioned and I was very impressed. The sliders had the almost perfect ratio of bread to filling and the pulled pork was tasty. The mac and cheese was HUGE which worked out well because it was soooo good and I was able to take it home and get another 2 meals out of it. It's not the typical mac and cheese I like because I like my mac and cheese more saucy instead of stringy. This was stringy and saucy but I still thought it was extremely tasty! When I took it home I mixed it with some heavy cream and water to make it a little more saucy and then it became AMAZING! Even something as simple as the fries were done perfectly. They are cottage fries (round fries with ridges) and they were fluffy and tasty. My girlfriend loves oysters and got a dozen during happy hour. She said they were really tasty and they were CRAZY cheap!!! I would definitely recommend this place for happy hour and for the things we have tried. Looking forward to trying out their brunch one day! The patio is pretty cool and looking forward to the weather cooling down!

Awful service all 3 times I’ve been, expensive food - $97 for a few items. Keep wanting it to be great but will stick with other options instead.

The only negative I can speak to is the noise level. We were 4 people at 8:00 on Saturday night. Restaurant was very busy. The noise level made it impossible to have a conversation at our table without shouting. Our waiter was excellent, but could not hear him for the noise level. I will definitely go back, but at a less busy time, maybe it will be a little less noisy.
