This will be my third time at Bookers over the years and I still enjoy being there. Great place, adorable outdoor decor, and great service from my server.
My only two complaints were that my fish had bones in it and I’m aware that it’s natural, but I would’ve liked a heads up. Secondly, one of the food runners brought us the wrong food and then debated with as to whether it was right and then debated with the server. It would’ve been easier to just fix it instead of arguing with us. She later came back and admitted it was her mistake and apologized, but a lesson in how to deal in customer service and that she doesn’t need to be right might be helpful.
The food was amazing. Our waiter, Ben, was very knowledgeable and friendly and the ambiance is nice. Highly recommend.
Great experience, great food, some noise bc of the trolley’s going back and forth, but good overall! Nice outdoor dining set up too! Really enjoyed my experience!!
Food was good, atmosphere was nice! Would request outdoor seating next time.
The food was DELICIOUS!! The staff was welcoming and friendly! Definitely will be back again!
Service sketchy..food good
Great food and environment. A bit pricey but still worth it.
Good time for happy hour
This restaurant is terrific. Great food in a lovely setting.
The food was delicious! Well spiced, generous in portion. The cocktails were also delicious. Inventive combinations. The service was excellent- Michael was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. We loved it and will be back!
Good food, great drinks and customer service. Love the outside dining
Took my grandparents out for brunch to celebrate their anniversary and my grandmother’s 67th bday. This was their first time and they loved it!!!
Excellent food. Delightful atmosphere. Service just right.
The food was very good. The service was just a bit slow. Our waitress was very nice but I felt like she would leave our food and drinks and disappear for a while before she came back to check if there was anything else we needed.
This is my second time visiting Bookers and the service was even better the second time. I was seated and served in about 18 minutes. I had steak and eggs. While the eggs weren’t completely fried hard, it was still delicious. I didn’t necessarily enjoy the deviled eggs, and my May Flower cocktail didn’t really have a kick but it was still pretty and delicious. Overall, I would return again.
From the time I came in to when I left, the service provided was impeccable. The hostess, my server, the bar staff and various food runners all did their own jobs while helping each other out to keep patrons happy. My server was knowledgeable about the menu and drinks, providing details when asked. Now every time I think about the food I ate that night, (Mussels, collard greens, cornbread, deviled eggs salmon sliders, limoncello cake) I throw my head back in deep satisfaction. Perfect temp for everything, portions even bigger than I expected, melt in your mouth greatness. If you're looking for a Southern-style home good eat with a modern twist, this is your place.
Great place great service 😉👌🏾💯
Bookers was great for my second date night with ny boyfriend! Loved the food and so did he!
Overall great experience! Nice drinks! I expected more from the food but, it wasn’t horrible! Definitely want to try it out again for dinner instead of brunch.
Brunch was great
Excellent and fast service will visit again in the very near future
Good time always. Just beware that you may have to wait despite a reservation. I waited 45 mins although I had a reservation. Which was a first time I waited so long to be seated. Free samples are always good. Thanks Hornitos I was a little disappointed in the grits they were so bland. Lacked flavor and salt other than that my other food was fine and the vibe is always good. I love the live band and Dj.
I had dinner at the Booker‘s restaurant on Baltimore Ave. the food was excellent I ordered the blackened fish with garlic mashed potatoes and collard greens everything was delicious. I also ordered the lemon cake which was $9.00 I received a slice that I considered worth $2.00. That ruined the whole dinner for me. The servers were bringing out corn bread slices bigger than the slice of lemon cake I receive. 😟
I went to Bookers for brunch. This was my second time there. The food was delicious. I'm so glad that my table was outside because it was super loud inside. I did not get any drinks this time, but the drinks are also good.
This was my first time visiting Booker’s and I must say that everything was great. The food, the server and the people were great. I will definitely be going there again.
The atmosphere was lovely . Clean .. food was great !!
I was really excited about having dinner here. I’m sad to say I was disappointed in the food. My husband ordered the friend chicken breast, asked for palenta instead of mash potatoes, got the mash, when speaking with the waiter he then says, oh the kitchen said we’ve been out of palenta for a few weeks.....
Greens tasted like they were out of a can.
The only thing I enjoyed was the carrot cake and the Jack Apple Spritzer........
I don’t think I’ll be retuning.
Good time for early Mother's Day celebration dinner.
Very relaxed atmosphere, great servers, and great food! We had a great time! No complaints!
We went out for my friends bday and the place was BEAUTIFUL 😩 the servers were very nice and welcoming and the food was amazing as well. Huge portions for good prices
Great Food! Great Service friendly staff and great atmosphere!
I believe it was a very good 1st time experience! A few tweaks could have made the experience excellent! But all in all a good and special day for the birthday girl!!!
I love love love bookers!!!!
Our server, Michael, was awesome!! He made great recommendations and was very attentive to us.
Our dining experience was FANTASTIC! Our food was so delicious! We were given plenty of food, so much that we needed take out service. The only issue... we needed a deeper container to take our food home. The waitress was not able to wrap the food in foil or clear wrap. We were given a paper bag, and when we left, we were 50 meters from the restaurant and the bag broke!!!!! All of our delicious mussels, shrimp and pasta hit the ground! My girlfriend was furious ! We only needed some additional wrapping to secure the container. Other than that....excellent! I will be back, but I plan to eat ALL of my food on site or see the manager for the proper take out container.
The food was fantastic and the service was very good. Will definitely be going back again and again.
I had reservations. When I arrived, I was told that they had 'over-seated' and I would have to wait 15 minutes. We were told that the owner wanted walk-ins to be seated, regardless of those with reservations. We waited 30 minutes, and were never seated. We left.
Why have reservations if they're not going to be honored?
Great food. Excellent location. It was an enjoyable way to spend a summer like day in April. I'll be back
