Excellent evening meal. Booth, supposedly for 6 people, was a bit crowded even with 5 but still larger than average booth. Enjoyed the evening a lot.

Great Beer selection and an acceptable wine selection especially considering the beer selection. Definitely recommend having a reservation as it gets very busy during happy hours and prime dining time.

My wife and daughter did think the medium-well burgers were way too red, but the food was good tasting and the service excellent.

Food was great as usual, however had a early reservation on a Friday night & the soup of the day was already sold out. So that was disappointing

Food was good. Hostess acted a bit annoyed. Didn’t know it was a special menu should have been told before being seated

I have not been to Breakneck for a while, and after this visit I now recall why I haven't. It took forever for our food to arrive. 45 mins is way too long for food to arrive. I ordered the kale and quinoa salad, the easiest to make. However, I requested the dressing to be on the side. When our food finally arrived, the dressing was not on the side. Needless to say, I feared sending this back as everyone else's food arrived. It took another 15 minutes to make another salad. The excuse given was " we are very busy!". THIS IS WHY I won't go back.

You’ll be missing out if you haven’t considered trying this menu. I give them high marks for finding a nice twist of flavor to liven up their dishes. Super friendly service and great atmosphere make it worthwhile! We reserved through open table and were seated immediately at lunchtime on the Friday before Christmas. Great experience.

Burgers, chicken sandwich and fried pickles were great. Ribs were a little dry and overcooked. I'd definitely go again. Nice place, great service.

Poor management. My husband’s fish sandwich was raw and cold. We we told our waiter and he notified the manager. We were offered a free dessert to make up for the sandwich that my husband could not eat. We declined the dessert. When we received our bill we were charged for the fish sandwich. We were regularly customers but after the way this was handed we will not be back.

Food was excellent as always. Only negative was our server removed plates and utensils before we were finished with them and without checking to be sure she could do so.

My friend and I had a very good dining experience at Breakneck Tavern. The waitress was friendly and gave us good service. My only suggestion was that we both ordered a bowl of soup and salad, but bread was never brought until I asked.

Good place. Nice selection of food, and it’s varied, some interesting items to choose from. Prices are fair, not cheap, but fair for the quality of the food. Service was fast and polite. I’ll be going back.

I had ordered the Portobela & Vegetable Linguini in the past and really enjoyed it. I ordered the same dish the last time we were in and was disappointed. Something was lacking. I looked on the menu online and realized it lacked the smoked corn and whipped goat cheese. This was the first time we had this kind of experience and I realize that an off night can happen.

My husband and I came on a Saturday night for a date night. We were very glad we made a reservation because they were bumping. They kept to our reservation time which was great. The atmosphere was warm, a bit industrial and a little funky. The menu was super unique. We tried the crab dip (best I've ever had), the smoked corn and bacon risotto (wonderfully rich and creamy), and the Creole Pot Pie (very flavorful). Everything was delicious. The drink menu and whiskey selection were awesome. We loved this date night spot! The entree list was a bit pricey, but everything we had was amazing.

We dined at Breakneck Tavern with friends on a Saturday. We had a reservation but arrived early and were seated. The placed was packed. The menu was varied and interesting. We had appetizers of hummus and crab dip and both were delicious. Our entrees met all of our expectations. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. We have been to Breakneck Tavern before and will return.

We had a very nice experience. Good service, great food, not busy on a Tuesday night, easy to have a conversation. Enjoyed the crab cake sandwich with fried green tomato. Others had a burger, Mac and cheese, veggie wrap and all were good. Definitely give this place a try.

Very noisy. Had a reservation- we were not allowed to be seated despite elderly age and walker. No other seat to take nearby even though our booth sat empty and our other 2 handicapped friends arrived within 5 minutes which we explained.
Mahi looked like a tilapia filet thin crusted and dried out piece of fish.
Eichners chicken skin and spinach topping leaf was so salty could not ingest. Interior meat was tasty.
