Loved it! Just thought the tables outside were a little tight. Other than that, we had a great time.

Didn’t really like the lobster Mac and cheese. It was a bit salty. The burger of the day was simple and bland. Was expecting more. The restaurant and atmosphere was nice though.

We love going to Big City Tavern and have been for many years. We were there this last visit (this past weekend) and they sat us in a booth near the bar. As loud as it gets in there it’s worse by the bar. My wife and I both ordered the Greek salad with sliced steak in it. First, the amount of lettuce in both of our salads was 1/2 what it normally is. The amount of steak (while not 1/2 as much as usual was still a skimpy portion). I first thought since Covid many places are marking up their prices or keeping them the same but giving you a lot less. However, my wife and I were at Big City about a month ago and she ordered the same and it was a lot better ( how it usually is). My daughter ordered the skirt steak which was good and like it’s usually served. I was going to tell the waitress on our salads but figured she would say that’s how it is (besides I really hate sending food back). There was a ton of sliced onions in both salads (almost like they were running low on lettuce so they put a lot (too much) onion on our salads to make them look fuller.
The noise level was to the point that we really couldn’t talk to each other.

We had an awesome lunch consisting of mahi sandwiches and wasabi fries. The sandwiches were fresh and moist and the fries had a great kick! Our waitress was also great!

We had a horrible experience at one of my favorite brunch spots in Fort Lauderdale. Our waitress Sarah was very inattentive and took long with everything. I ordered the bottomless mimosas at 1:30 knowing their brunch special ended at 3, it was 2pm and I had only gotten one mimosa. Our waitress was hard to get a hold off and she walked away from my table while I was ordering twice! We got the manager and he wasn’t even unapologetic. Overall a very disappointing experience

Great spot for brunch! We had the bottomless mimosas and our server always made sure when we needed another round. Food came out fast and everyone at the table enjoyed their dish. I will be coming back for brunch another weekend!

Big City rocks! During the last year of the pandemic, big city has been open and consistently serving with good service. Last night was terrific, the skirt steak was cooked perfectly, and we added the delicious truffle fries. The scallops were cooked perfectly, tender and delicious. Service was excellent.

The service was great, and the food was delicious. Our only complaint is that the coconut shrimp was a total rip off with only 4 shrimp for $14. We love this place and will definitely go back but just won’t order the shrimp!

We had brunch yesterday and it was FANTASTIC. I've been before, but I have relatives visiting so it was new to them and they thought the food was amazing as well as the service. Our server, Paige, was an absolute PERFECT server. She was attentive, friendly, and got everything right. I wish I could have service like hers every time I went out somewhere. Overall a wonderful experience :)
