    The outdoor patio is fantastic. The food was good. The server was very nice but the slowness was ridiculous. It took endless time to get drink refills. Easily 15 minutes each time. My friend ordered the meatloaf dinner. He got a ball of meat on a plate and that was it. They said his broccoli would be coming. Our table was literally cleared of all the plates after we ate and about five minutes after that they brought out a plate of broccoli. It’s just not acceptable. I don’t think the experience would keep us from coming there again, but it was disappointing.

    The food was excellent, but the service was extremely slow. If you’re looking for a quicker dinner, go elsewhere. But if you have some time to spare, the patio is beautiful and the food was very very good. Our server was super nice, I just think he had way to many tables to take care of.

    Made reservations and requested outdoor seating. Got to restaurant and the only seating was in the sun. It was 90 degrees. We wound up sitting inside. Disappointed in that. It was my bday given to me by family

    The fish and chips were really good, but the chili was very oily and had a strange flavor. The tortilla chips seemed stale and the salsa also had a strange flavor which we couldn’t really make out. Our server was very nice but it was occasionally difficult to get her attention. The restaurant was not very busy so it

    Queso didn't have enough chips, by the time the server came back so we could ask for more, it was cold, we asked is she could microwave it, she said she would have to charge us for another. Not enough fries with the burger. Burger was undersized for the bun. Margaritas were $14 and smallish. We won't be going back unless someone else is buying.

    Cheese curds and smoked wings were great! Whiskey pour was small. One burger was ordered medium rare and came out as well done and warm at best. The other burger was cooked okay but half way through a long black hair was in it. Service was incredibly slow and the place was only half full with waitstaff walking around everywhere.

    Sorry …but the waitress we had was a bit short & abrupt. I work in the airline industry as a Trainer and i tried numerous times to engage with her. We were a family of 7 with a 5 year old and barely sat down and it was “What do you want to drink”?? I said, “Just give us a few to get settled here”. Nicely The over all experience was that we annoyed her. Perhaps she was waiting on. Good Bar Tab. 4 of the 7 did drink alcoholic beverages. We were all excited about going to dinner but really felt like we were an imposition. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Very slow service. Upon being seated waited at least 15 minutes before being waited on. Beverages were slow to arrive and the only alcoholic drink (Vera) took an additional 10 min to arrive. Super pricey on the apps $14 or $15 e for tortilla chips and some kind've dip. The place was packed but not sure what the draw is. Thanks!

    Had a reservation for 5:30. Had to wait 5-10 minutes to be seated but was still waiting for a server to come to our table a half hour later so we left without eating or drinking. Will not be returning.

    Celebrated “Bonus Mom’s” day! Did have an issue with the Jon Bon Jovi cinnamon roll. Baked on the outside, not cooked on the inside. It was comped, but was not able to enjoy it fully. Still the food was good, the ambience is good, service was great, want to go and enjoy the outside area!

    Our table was not ready and when we did get seated the table was not set at all. We were seated at a high top table and no one asked if we would be ok with a high top. My sister is pregnant and high top would not work for her. It seemed our request ti not sit there was a huge inconvenience. Our server at our table was great and went above ti make me and my sister who are moms feel special on Mothers Day. My husband had the flatbread breakfast pizza and that was over cooked. The Childress menu was overpriced.
