We have been to City Works at least 30 times. This is the first time we had such a terrible experience. The food was cold and I mean cold. We had to wait for the waitress numerous times. She did bring out additional french fries, but yet again, they were luke warm at best. I don't know if there was just a staffing issue, but we have never had such terrible food before there. We will go back, hoping this was just a fluke.

A place to fill your belly. Ordered medium rare burger...got medium well. Our server didn't take away dirty dishes but was very anxious sell us more drinks. Didn't feel comfortable the entire time we were there. If you need to eat and run...this is the place for you. If you need a place for you and your buds to watch the game...go!!!

Food was great until a person sat down with 2 extremely large untrained dogs. I don’t like to eat with dogs. Service was good also.

I have been to this place multiple times and have always had a great experience regarding the food. This last time , service was a bit lacking with her attitude and attentiveness . She didn’t seem to be in the best mood and rarely checked back with us.That all being said , food was exceptional yet again, ahi tacos are to die die

Well, we ordered an appetizer which never came out until after our food. It was not good at all. Forgot my daughter’s drink. Service was sub par too.

Food came out over cooked first time, and completely raw the second time. We sat at 6pm and weren’t finished till 8:15 between the server not coming to our table but very rarely and it taking them 3 times to get my food correct.

The drinks from the bar were very good though, but the food and overall service was not

Excellent restaurant, great food, great service. Had party of 8 all with very different palettes. Waitress knew all menu offerings intimately and answered all our questions which helped us all decide on some great food and an excellent experience. We will definitely visit again. We are from Scranton Pa.

Have been there often. This visit I had the chopped salad that not good. It had pre-cooked frozen chicken pieces that were tough. The lettuce was chopped a day earlier and was soggy and browning. Very Disappointed!

I was overly dissapointed in our experience. Service was not great and food was below average. We went for an early dinner and wasn't that busy. Very over priced for the quality of food and beverage.

Visited this establishment a few times during our stay and found the food to be very tasty. One dish that we ordered twice was very inconsistent in its presentation and accompaniments. Overall was a good experience.

I’m sorry I wish I could give more stars but from the appetizers to the main meal it wasn’t good. The fish tacos almost tasted like the fish had gone bad. Also so many onions that all you tasted was red onion and terrible fish. I ate half of one and we decided to go somewhere else. Our server was super friendly and her service was great. Nothing bad to say about her. Staff was friendly as well. Just food wasn’t good at all and that’s unfortunate.

Our waitress was great. Food was decent. Its a sports bar its loud. One issue: I wanted a booth (there were 5-6 available surrounding the perimeter of the bar area) but the hostess insisted on seating us in the tall boy long tables. I have back problems. Its uncomfortable for me to sit in those chairs but I just went along as the hostess wasn;'t budging on the booth. Over the 1+ hours we were there (july 4th evening) 4 booths remained unoccupied. Give people the seats they want. It isn't that hard if the seats are unoccupied. Bottom line, this place is OK, decent food, loud ambience , great service if you get the right server.

The smoked gouda mac-and-cheese was spot-on. The filet mignon sliders are ample, though they'd work better if the steaks were sliced. And the service was top-notch -- friendly, unassuming and swift.

The ribs were not to my liking. Like when they fall off the bone. Wasn’t a fan of how the Buffalo Chicken Dip was prepared, didn’t like the carrots mixed in the dip.

my chopped salad was horrible, chunks of fatty cold bacon, no avocado, small cooked chicken pieces that were not grilled. My drinks were watered down. Some of the lettuce was wilted. Our bill came to 73.00 for a salad and a burger. Draft beer was expensive.
Really bummed out with everything!!!! At least the bands that were playing in Market Square were excellent....but then turn off your outdoor annoying music on your patio when there is a live band!

Very enjoyable, we had two toddlers and the staff was super accommodating (kid-friendly). They had high chairs and booster seats. Despite being pretty busy, food came fast and our server was very attentive. Nice outdoor space right on the square. Prices are what you'd expect for a downtown establishment.
