City Works - Frisco
Book your next event with us
Reservation was perfect. Food and service were great.
We went for the Rock and Roll Brunch. Loved the cocktails - Bloody Mary and Bellini. Beignets were a great start. Lots to choose from on the menu. Grits, eggs, bacon, sausage was a good choice. Breakfast tacos we nicely done. Cheesy potatoes were excellent. Nice beer selection - we'll definitely go again.
They didn’t acknowledge the fact that we’re celebrating two birthdays even though I included a note when I made the reservation.
Our waiter seemed like he didn’t want to be there at all. Everyone sitting outside on the second floor seemed to have to ask for silverware and napkins even after food was delivered. Appetizer dishes weren’t cleared until the end of the meal so on a hot day, flies were loving the leftovers. The waiter would come to refill water and only do one glass before walking away from the table. Had to flag him down to get additional glasses refilled.
Food was just ok. Breakfast tacos were appetizer sized and had no flavor. No salt or pepper on the table and asking for some sort of hot sauce would have required getting our waiters attention yet again.
Server was below average. Restaurant was empty.
They are advertising an octoberfest beer special and meals but the waitress and bartender had not idea what we were tolling about. They had one octoberfest beer on tap. Also the schnitzel they are advertising was just a thick cut breaded chicken cutlet. Was highly disappointed.
Hello there, I'm sorry to hear that you had a disappointing experience at City Works. Thank you for providing your feedback. - Staley
Still the best chili around. But they still will not open their doors until precisely 11:30 am so customers must wait outside in the hot sun or rain. Really annoying practice, and I can no longer recommend them as this has been going on since they launched their business.
Great bar menu.
Hi Oddie, I'm glad you enjoyed your visit to City Works! Come back again soon! - Staley
I have been here several times and always enjoyed the food. Tonight our service was exceptionally good. I wish I had remembered her name. I had the red grouper and it was wonderful, it's a very light meal which is what I was looking for. My son's had the pork chop and tacos and we enjoyed 2 appetizers, the pretzel bites and the buffalo shrimp. All was good, and it was a very enjoyable dinner. I've never been disappointed here, and highly recommend it.
Hi Kelly, I'm glad you had a great time at City Works! We look forward to seeing you and your family again soon! :) - Staley
Good lunch menu, appropriate portions. Great service.
service and appetizers very good....we had the ribs and they were very tasty, however thought they were a little dry
Good food and drinks, service was a bit slow since waitress kept botching up the orders

My daughter and her friends came here for her birthday. They were served raw salmon. Although they removed it from their bill it was not a great experience.
The service has really gone downhill. Aside from way too rapid refills of my son’s lemonade, our server was completely inattentive & hard to find. I asked for our side salads before the meal & she said she wasn’t sure if she could do that but would check. With no follow up or apology, they came out with our main courses. I was dripped on regularly by a pipe above and when I told someone (because our server was MIA), I was just told “yeah our AC has been doing that”. Also 2 of the last 3 times we’ve visited, the Incredible Burger was out of stock. And now they don’t know when it will be back. The Tinga tacos were really good, as were my husband’s and son’s chicken sandwiches. Too loud to talk across our booth without yelling. Not a good experience.

We’ve eaten here several times. Food always good
Tonight my husband ordered the salmon he said it was one of the best he’s ever eaten.
We will be back again soon.
Hi Ilene, I'm glad you had a great meal at City Works! Come back again soon! - Staley
Server was great - salads came out warm
Yes it is a fun, enjoyable and with great view place. The beer selection is good, the food is good. My only minor complaint, I had reserved a table on the second floor, but when I arrived the second floor was reserved for some event, and therefore I did not have access. My preference would have been that my expectation be set, so that I would have know prior to getting to City Works. Maybe I would have made different plans would I have known that the second floor was not available.
Food is great. The filet mignon sliders are a must. Fun atmosphere.
Hi Susan, I'm glad you had a great time at City Works! Thanks for leaving your feedback :) - Staley
Great dinner out with the wife and kids! Food and service were great and will definitely go back!
Hi Sean, I'm glad you had a great time at City Works! Come back again soon! :) - Staley
Food was just ok, biscuits and gravy were really a English muffin and not a biscuit..
Breakfast Sammie was very good but my daughter’s had too much fennel. Husband’s Sammie was very good. Stuffed French toast was filled with so much grease it oozes onto plate when cut. The flavor of the Baileys filling almost made up for all the grease. Blueberries in topping were fresh but strawberries were either from frozen or cut a couple of days ago.
Food was ok - best part was the appetizer

Really great place to watch a game. Enormous patio is likely packed in the fall for football on the Cowboys big screen. Lots of tvs inside and a nice modern atmosphere. Happy hour prices were nice. I had the duck nachos, which sound great in theory and lacked in execution as the wonton chips become immediately soggy from the cheese sauce. BBQ chicken flatbread was good.
Typical inside/outside table assignments where the outside gets forgotten for significant periods of time. Had to ask for silverware, condiments and alcohol refills.
This is more of a place to have happy hour than date night. Half of the seating is high top tables, so if you have a reservation and don’t want to sit at a high too make sure you ask. The beer selection was great, but the food was less than impressive. The fries were really good, but everything else was meh.
We had great food and really good service but there some parents that let their kids run around the terrace yelling and screaming. Luckily the wait staff stepped in and said something to the parents.
City Works was a great location to go to grab a bite to eat and watch some March Madness! The wall of TVs was visible from our seats and we could easily watch not only the game of most interest to us; but the other games being played as well. Our server was personable, timely, and very knowledgable about the beers that were on tap. She gave great recommendations- and bought out a sample to my guest that was unsure of a beer that she was describing. The beer and food were both great!
Hi Elaine, I'm glad you had a great time at City Works! We look forward to seeing you again soon! - Staley
Food was good. Beer was nice and cold.

Wonderful anniversary dinner. Mason was a terrific server. He provided great advice when ordering drinks and food. He never rushed us as we took time enjoying our night out. Will be back for the food, drinks and service.
Hi there, I'm so glad you had a nice time at City Works! Thanks for visiting us :) - Staley
Good food, great place. Service was quite slow and it wasn’t that busy. Love the food though.
Been coming here a few times now, and it still does not disappoint. Best chili around, great appetizers, an extraordinary and reasonable priced beer list, and a fine atmosphere.
Hi Terence, I'm so glad to hear you're having a great time at City Works! We look forward to seeing you again soon! :) - Staley
Went to City Works on a date with my wife. It was our first time there. We both ordered the grilled chicken sandwich with a side salad. Aside from it taking a long time to get our food, the food was horrible. The side salad was literally three bites (I'm not exaggerating). The bun was hard and the grilled chicken was dry and way over-cooked. Even the bacon on the sandwiches was burned. All of this for over $30 after the tip. Very poor value. Our waiter was fine, although I was waiting for him to ask us how everything was...but he never did.

We chose City Works for a Valentine's double date with my teenage daughter and her boyfriend. We were excited to try the restaurant since we had never been. I liked the menu option (buffalo chicken dip was a great appetizer) and the waiter was very personable and helpful with all our questions. He gave great suggestions for the beer and warned us that the cauliflower steak is not meat! ha! Wish there were more dessert options, although the two they had were delicious!
Hi Glen, I'm happy to hear you all had a nice time at City Works! Thanks for picking us as your date night spot :) Come back again soon! - Staley
Eh. Drink menu and place were impressive. Buffalo chicken dip was good, wings were flavorless. All in all solid C+.

It was our first time there, during the winter so I can't speak to the outside café seating but indoors: I love all the soft seating options. We were there for Valentine's Day and while I was disappointed there WASN'T a special 'love-themed' dish by the chef or drink for the day by the bartender, we enjoyed the menu. I like an incentive menu so I loved and highly recommend you trying the duck nachos. For those not so adventurous, they have standard fare, too. Being so close to the Star, the many tv's were awesome for this Dallas Stars fan. I won't blame City Works for the loss...and we'll definitely be back!
Valentines Day. Now we know why seats were available at 630p
Friends introduced me to this dining spot and it has been fun to take other friends there to share the experience. Sahara was excellent wait staff and we had a relaxing and enjoyable evening.
Hi Becky, I'm glad you had a nice time at City Works! I will pass your compliment on to Sahara, she'll be happy to hear it. Come back again soon! - Staley
One of our favorite places to eat. By far one if the best craft beer selection in Frisco.
Great food, good service, wide selection of beer. Somewhat noisy in the bar area. Priced similarly to other good quality brew pubs/gastrobars.
Hi Paul, I'm glad you had a nice time at City Works! We hope you'll come back again soon! - Staley
Best chili in Frisco. Together with their eclectic burger menu and offer the top list of on tap beers, they offer a set of tasty choices. Wait staff are attentive and friendly.
Only complaint is that the music is way too loud when the restaurant is uncrowded.
Hi Terrance, I'm so glad you had a great time at City Works! Come back again soon! - Staley
Tried City Works when an old friend popped into town. What an interesting place with an amazing beer selection, more TVs behind the bar than I could count and a nice ambience. Best part of the bar/TV area is that we could sit away from it and not be distracted by all the motion, noise, and bright lights from the TVs.
Wait staff was great and so was the food. Great comfort food options and the made from scratch setup allowed my friend who is vegetarian, to customize a few options for his lunch.
Given the neighborhood and the Cowboys practice stadium out the window, the prices were decent and I'l go back here for a special occasion or lunch with an old friend again.
