    The service was great. The food was good however a couple of the entrees were missing key elements to the meal making it less satisfying. Our server did try to fix the problem however it did take away from the overall experience with having to wait etc. the menu is much smaller than we remember from pre covid so options were not as plentiful but again server great food good and ambiance decent

    I will say that our service was outstanding. Our server was thorough and timely. What could have been better was the fact that they booked a party immediately following our 5:45 reservation. I was told about the party ahead of time, and thought an hour and fifteen minutes would be sufficient time. Unfortunately, two of our party were late by 30 minutes, delaying our dinner. We felt very rushed. There were two other tables that were dining, but I can’t speak for their experience. While everyone’s food was phenomenal, my daughter’s chicken tenders were definitely over fried. Other than that, we did enjoy the evening.

    Nasty place. One of the servers was vaping while going table to table. The bartender and same server were spaying his hair with a spray bottle and doing his hair behind the counter. They don’t have wrapped straws so our server brought the box to our table for us ‘to pick one out’. Our coffee was delivered after our meal (we were there for brunch). The server kept telling us it was still brewing and then kept saying it was heating up. My scrambled eggs were brown and the bacon was half cooked at best. They didn’t even bother to cut the French toast. One in the party asked for a side of guacamole or avocado. He said they don’t have it. Avocado toast is literally on the menu. . Presentation was awful. Stay away. So gross.

    First time there, very impressed. Nice quiet outside seating, service was prompt and attentive (well done Chase!) and the food was delicious. Really noisy inside (trivia nite) would've been a problem if the weather was bad, but the patio was perfect.

    They seemed to be scrambling but no one let us know why food took so long. We ordered crab Rangoon dip appetizer and it came out after about 30 min and the chips were stale. When we asked if they could get us fresh they said that they all were stale. Gave us Tortilla chips instead, but by the time we go those the dips was cold. We ordered drink and they too took long and came out without the garnish. It just seemed like he polish and attention to detail was missing from the crew that night. The biggest problem for me though was that no one said why or gave us an update as to what was happening. A simple "our kitchen is short staffed, or we have a large party in front of you" if that were the case would have been helpful.

    The experience overall was quite poor, and it was directly related to being severely understaffed on a Saturday of all days. The waiter and other staff were stretched way too thin. The drinks were incorrectly and poorly made and the food took forever and then came out cold. We didn't get our main meals until almost 2 hrs after we sat down. The waiter was very nice and extremely apologetic, gave us a discount on our food.. It wasn't his fault if a business doesn't give their staff what they need to run properly. I would not go back.

    Service was very slow - an hour to get the most basic food (chicken tenders, Mac and cheese, and a wrap). The outdoor patio was great with live music, but I would spend my money elsewhere unless management can really improve service here.

    I reserved a table outside, it had sprinkled earlier and I had to push to get a table outside, I felt as tho I was in convincing the staff. The server would put something on the table and run away before we could even ask for anything else. I think we were only checked in 1 time during our meal. The food itself was ok, nothing special but good. Don't bother with the queso or salsa... both come from a jar and are not good.

    We had high hopes based on the reviews. Great ambiance but when crowded, not the best choice. Long wait for all items. Was told by the waiter that the kitchen was very behind. Waited 45 min for chips and salsa as an appetizer. Learned 45 min after ordering that some items are no longer available. When hungry college kids don’t finish the meal after waiting 90 minutes, you know that the food isn’t great.

    We dined outdoors on a Saturday night. There was a female musician that was fantastic that we enjoyed listening to. The ambiance outdoors is really nice. Our service was slow. We ordered an appetizer and tables around us that arrived after us received their appetizers first. When we asked our waiter about ours he said “sorry it’s coming, the kitchen is really backed up”. About three minutes later ours showed up followed by our meals about three minutes after that. Personally we think he forgot about our appetizer. Then we waited about 15 minutes for our bill. He passed by multiple times said he would bring it twice but never did. Kept waiting on our tables. Finally we could flag him down and paid directly on the hand held kiosk. We would go back again because the atmosphere and food were good in hopes of a better server experience.

    Didn't know what to expect and I was pleasantly surprised. Greeted right away. Server was friendly, knowledgeable and had perfect timing. Started with deep-fried pickles. Best I've ever had and I've had a lot I selected a wonderful salad with Bleu cheese and pecans and beautiful greens topped with a very generous piece of salmon. Great food, fair prices in a nice little bar/restaurant. Trivia night on Wednesdays!

    The food, service, and drinks were amazing. Vibe of the restaurant was good too. There was a big group of us and our server was just the right level of attentive. I’m not sure if their AC was off or malfunction for the night but the restaurant itself was too warm. We didn’t say anything about how hot it was but it def a place worth revisiting.

    These folks very kindly accommodated a group of 8 for a late lunch, reserved at the last minute. The outdoor seating, in the interior courtyard of a repurposed furniture factory, was spacious, comfortable, and attractive. The wait staff (I wish I could remember her name!) was attentive without being hovering, prompt, and responsive. Not to mention a great smile. The menu was surprisingly eclectic, well and timely prepared, and thoroughly enjoyed by my out of state (and some, out of country - Indonesia) guests. I had not been here in over a decade but will return much sooner! Joe, Ada, Michigan

    Food and service was good. I would avoid ordering cocktail drinks. They don't put a lot of liquor in it. Their air conditioning wasn't working was it's pretty hot inside. Sounds like it's been out for a while.

    What a treat Saturday night to sit on the huge deck at Brickyard and enjoy a great trio covering classic rock tunes. Drinks were great and so was the food. Fried pickles, seared tuna salad and some really good burgers were just a few highlights. Our server could have been more attentive.

    We had a special evening planned for a bachelorette party & this was the tavern the bride picked based on the stellar reviews. This restaurant however, did severely disappoint. We had a reservation & showed up promptly. We were seated by the hostess & it took 15 minutes before a waiter came over to our table, in which he stated, “he would be right back”…another 10 minutes later, he came back to our table. By this time, not only did we know our drink orders but our food orders too. It took 1.5 hours to get our food, drinks were not filled & he forgot one of our drinks altogether. The glasses & pitchers were dirty. As a group, we would not recommend this restaurant. We don’t know the waiters name because he never told us, several items we decided to order were no longer available, it just wasn’t the dinner celebration we had hoped for our bride-to-be.
