    Service was friendly and fine but very slow. When our meals arrived one of the people in our party requested ketchup and everyone else had finished their entrees (12-18 minutes) before the ketchup arrived. A better-run restaurant would empower faster service. This feels like a fundamental flaw in their service delivery model and I would not recommend this restaurant until the model is improved. You're in a busy, high-demand area... act like it.

    Table for 6. Seven chairs. Brought 5 waters. Took 5 orders before trying to leave table. Brought 5 plates for apps. Lost an order in the kitchen and took 30 minutes to replace. Not the best experience.

    Excellent service, varied menu with some delicious options for everyone. The seating and vibe were good. Great for a group. We went after Navy Bootcamp Graduation (PIR) and it was perfect for our party of 9. We were seated immediately, all the food came out at the same time and was delicious. Some of the food (my chicken sandwich) came out a little bit overdressed with too much sauce and about 20 pickles which just made it a bit messy to eat - but flavor was on point, so no issue there. Parking plentiful, highly recommend!

    Tonight was the 4th time we had dinner here. My husband had ribs and liked them. I had the Ahi entree, and it was terrible, I sent it back. The Tuna was overcooked, and the broccolini was under cooked, the rice was non-existent. The kitchen was slow. I really feel my dish was sitting under heat lamps too long.

    My salmon dinner is my favorite at City Works and of course a beer. I like to get the 5 ounce pour so I can get more than 1 glass. Yesterday was the Neapolitan followed with the left hand milk stout. Our waiter was terrific. A wonderful dinner out with my honey.

    This used to be our go to place before heading to AMC for a movie. After this visit, we may need to re-evaluate. We had cheese curds to start with and they were not crispy. My partner had the BLT and it was very bready. We had dessert and they didn't bring spoons.

    We enjoyed all of our food... apps, dinner, and dessert. Service and cook time were slow - it was a steady evening but never so busy that they had a visible wait of more than a couple minutes. We will certainly return again but it will never be a favorite place.

    Service was great but noticed a fall off in food quality. Fries were under cooked and soggy. It also took longer than usual for items to arrive at the table. We’ll give it another chance as we enjoy being able to watch the games and the selection of beer.
