I was hoping for a brunch menu at 11:45a on a Saturday, and was disappointed to get the regular menu but it was my fault for not looking into this before we went.

I didn’t care for the chicken pastina soup, I think it had tarragon in it. It took the waiter forever to come back for me to tell him. He took it off the bill. The Foundry cocktail w as delicious. The bruschetta was fabulous.

Our first time to visit was this past weekend. The appetizers were amazing. We loved the mussels and the calamari. We were excited for our entrees however after we ordered our waitress came back to say two of the meals they ran out of. We ordered two more, but we think they left the other entrees to warm while the others were made. The filet was to be medium rare but this was not the case and very hard to cut. The pappardelle noodles were soggy, that I couldn’t eat it. The brussel sprouts were smothered in cheese and not charred as described. And lastly the risotto with lobster tasted like Day old rice. We typically do not complain and when mentioning the waitress did not seem to care. They could use some more attentive strategies to clear plates from the table as well. I would only go back for apps at the bar but not worthy for dinner.

I can’t thank you enough for a great Valentine’s afternoon with my mom and sister. From the chocolate covered strawberry martinis, calamari, stuffed peppers, Brussels sprouts, fillet, scallops, to the raspberry torte, the food was awesome. Our waitress was as sweet as can be. The food was so good I brought my husband back down last night... beet salad, mussels ❤️ Scallops, lamb ❤️ The blondie brownie had thee best Carmel sauce ❤️
I think between food and beer selection this is our new go too.

Best brunch I have had for quite a long time. My sister and I used to patronize first watch in cranberry but within minutes there of arrival we were being given our check and rushed before We had even received all of our food. And this happened two times in a row. Now after today—-Breakneck will be our new go to place. The wild mushroom omelette-to die for. Add in the berry champagne with real smashed berries. Brunch of the Gods. Thank you Breakneck! This was my first visit, now I see why my one friend raves about going here with her family!!! The

It was great for Valentine's Day brunch. It just took like an hour and half for them to get us our food which was a little crazy. Drinks are a little pricey too. Overall though great food, atmosphere, and service (besides being slow)

We went for Valentines Day. We both ordered the wagyu filet and lobster meal at a price of about $60 each. We both ordered the filet cooked medium. One came out medium, while the other came out well done. We told the server it was too overcooked and sent it back. The server returned with “the same” overcooked filet that I sent back, it even still had my original cuts in it.

We sent the filet back again, but by this time, my wife was finished eating, and I now only had a partial meal because my lobster and vegetable were eaten.

They offered no apology or discount for the aggravation.

We will not return. Service is much better at less expensive places.

Dinner with wife and daughter day before Valentine's Day so very busy. We were seated promptly with our reservation. Time was 4:30 so not crazy but 90% full. Dinner was good and never felt rushed. Will be back with friends!

Thought it would be crowded/loud during the Superbowl. Pleasantly surprised it was not busy and very quiet. They were out of the brisket mac n cheese which was a bummer since it didn't seem busy enough to run out of it. Service was great and the food we ordered was very good!

We’ve enjoyed the Breakneck over the past year making many visits. Service is always top notch. The menu is diverse and innovative. The scratch made soups are always delicious and hearty. From the beer cheese to the potato and even the green bean casserole soups, the soup is always a great choice. Appetizers like the blue cheese hummus are amazing as well as the crab dip served with grilled pita triangles yum. I’ve enjoyed many entrees from the burgers, Reuben and several pasta dishes. The generous portion of short ribs were so tender and flavorful. My husband really enjoyed the grilled lamb chops. They also have a very nice cocktail menu. I’ve never been able to save room for desserts so I can’t comment on those choices. Covid friendly and we felt safe and socially distanced. Highly recommend
