Usually great food but not tonight. Dry aged NY strip ordered med rare came out closer to medium and was ridiculously chewy. No real flavor to the steak. Add on lobster tail was like chewing rubber bands. Very disappointing dinner. Wife’s pasta dishes was good as was the crab dip appetizer.

I love Breakneck - I love the beer selection, the cocktail drinks, the ambience and especially the food! My favorite crab dip and I love the appetizer scallops. It's a local go-to favorite!

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.
