This is one of our favorite local places! The service and food are always good. The wine list and draft beer list are long with many great choices. Can’t wait until Covid is behind all of us someday so we can sit at the bar again in such favorite places. We appreciated the option of outdoor seating. It was a sunny day in November. Everything was wonderful!

Always a great experience (even under the ridiculous dining restrictions our Dear Leader in Harrisburg has imposed).

Wonderful lunch spot. Yummy beers on tap. Wait staff friendly and attentive, but gives you space to talk with your companion without being overly intrusive. Food is amazing.

Great little find. Great atmosphere. Good drinks and great food. No complaints...if I had to give any critique, the entree took a bit long to come out but it was worth the wait and they brought out bread after our appetizer to keep good flow of food. Will definitely come back and tell our friends.

I would not give a bad review if this was not the second or third time we were disappointed over the past few visits. Perhaps it is the result of reduced capacity due to Covid (I hope as it should improve soon) but I am worried there has been a change in chefs or kitchen staff. Breakneck is normally our go to restaurant and I would hate for it to go down hill.

Please take this as constructive criticism. I want it to remain our go to restaurant

Food was amazing. You definitely have to have the smoked wings.
It was a little hard hearing the server through her mask at times.
My biggest complaint, it was freezing cold in there.

We have been to Breakneck Tavern before and every time it was unbelievably delicious but our last visit was a bit different, service was great but the food wasn’t the same. We did go later in the evening, I don’t know if that maters.

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.
