Another enjoyable visit, especially your outdoor area! Only BUT is: When the beignets arrived, slathered in 10x sugar, I remarked to the waitperson that "I'll have to order without sugar next time" and she remarked that "we always serve this way." When I noted that my every order in the past (3-4 times) has arrived without, she remarked that it may depend on who is preparing that dessert. The sugar is just too messy for me and detracts from the lovely dollops of chocolate, blueberry and whipped cream (especially in appearance) that I've come to enjoy.
May I order "no sugar" in the future?
Thank you,
Stephen Baker
P.S.: As my spouse did not correct my statement yesterday, it's likely a true recollection - about the bare beignets.

The Mahj-Mahi special entree and the glazed salmon regular entree were superb—excellently prepared and plated. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. We were impressed with the selection of wines. We will certainly return. Finally, all CDC guidelines were being strictly followed.

Went for Sunday Brunch. Great menu. Awesome food. Loved that we were able to sit outside on the patio. Everyone loved what they got (French toast, classic breakfast, omelette, breakfast wrap).

Always come to breakneck for great food! When family is all together we love to eat here. Could someone please make sure to tell the woman at the hostess front desk to wear her mask properly. It’s very upsetting to see someone who is in contact with so many people not even to bother putting her mask up to her nose and letting it hang open below her mouth.

This isn't my first experience with Breakneck Tavern. I think it's very good. I just don't know how far in advance you have to call to get a decent reservation. I called 2 days before and had to take a 4 o'clock reservation. Just a bit early don't you think.

Food and service were excellent. Our table was outside and on a slope which made eating, especially for the person whose back was facing downhill, a bit challenging. Would definitely go back. Hopefully management can be more cognizant of the topography when setting up outside tables while navigating through COVID.

Great food! Seared scallops, Crab cake sandwich, and BBQ Brisket flatbread pizza all delicious. The wife's Long Island seemed a bit weak/watered down, but it was good enough. Great beer list! I'd love to come back and take more advantage of the extensive bourbon/whiskey list. They did a great job of taking proper COVID precautions and we felt we were able to dine safely out on the patio. We may even come back this week!

Very good. Will be back. Some machinery was loud (maybe the AC unit?) and made it a little annoying to eat outside, so we will oot for inside next time.
