    City bar was such a fun date night spot. The three course fondue meal was very yummy and made for a fun evening. I would definitely recommend for a different/fun night out!

    This was my first visit here and most likely my last. We came for a couple of appetizers, and drinks. We started with the "fondue", which is more of a dip that is heated at the table. While it was a nice concept, it lacked flavor, and presentation. While the drinks were good, they were over priced.

    The less than great service was through no fault of the server. I think she was spread quite thin and did the best she could given the conditions. She was very friendly and knowledgeable.

    My wife tried several of the martinis and they were great. We should have stopped there. The actual cheese part of the fondue was good but the house made croutons they served with it were greasy. Also served French fries with it which were great but I can get cheese fries anywhere. We tried two more small plates and they were ok at best. We didn't bother finishing them and left to go eat somewhere else.

    City Bar exceeded our group's expectations. It is hard to get a group, let alone a group of 12 women, to all like their food. We thoroughly enjoyed the food options and will be back! The Shrimp and Grits took me to a nostalgic place and was one of the best dishes I've tasted in a long time.

    When we went it was not busy at all. Our server was newly employed but we didn't mind. Our appetizer was a chicken dish with pecans. Horrible! Dried out chicken and very tasteless. Our main courses were not much better. Each of us had maybe one item we liked on our plate. We left and went to another place to continue our celebration.

    The food was decent. The service was poor. The music from the bar just on the other side of our table was so loud we couldn't talk throughout the meal. The meal was entirely too long for what we ordered. They need to decide if this is a bar or a restaurant and focus on one or the other. Great location and great space though.
