Everything was really good. Mark the manager treated us with a warm welcome and checked several times that everything was going good.

Kind of pricey for a very limited menu. $14 burger lacked seasoning and flavor. Ribeye was good but not extraordinary. The waitress made up for all the other short comings.

I love the ambiance but it was too loud with the adjoining venue for a wedding reception it was way too noisy. Our server, Evan was fantastic as always. $32 for a steak and “smashed potatoes” was a bit steep for me. Also- smashed potatoes are usually some sort of mashed potato. Their version was a few small smashed yellow potatoes. Flatbread is excellent and I’ll stick to that from now on

Had the Combine burger. Asked for a side salad instead of fries. Up charge was $3 on a $17 burger. Burger was god but nothing too special. 1st glass of wine tasted as though it sat open for a couple days. No offer for a replacement. Waitstaff is very good.

The service was excellent, as always. Half price bottles of wine are a steal. We love the shrimp rose, but it was off this time. Flavor was bland and ingredients were lacking. We will still return.

The food was amazing and the service was awesome.
Smashed potatoes with the steak were a little bland- after taste was a little off pudding. But we did not let that take away from the rest of the meal, which was on point.
The special (butter walleye) was probably the best walleye I've ever had.
We will most certainly be back!

Had an early reservation for a Friday night. Felt comfortable with all COVID protocols. Half price wine night is a steal!! Bacon Brussel sprouts and truffle mushroom soup for appetizers was amazing!!! Bolognese and chopped salad for entrees were equally delicious!!! Will definitely be back soon!!

Food always top notch. Pleasant surroundings. Service was not as good as it normally is. No one asked how our meal was or asked if we wanted another glass of wine. So it was reflected in the tip. But usually service is really good!

The restaurant is in a newly developed area and was inviting and clean. The waiter, Evan R, was very friendly and pointed out that it was still happy hour for another half hour and would I like a glass of wine as it was half price. Made great recommendations for entrees which were delicious, presented very nicely and a perfect portion of food. Would definitely go again for dinner

We were a party of 6 and had a very nice time. Our server was great! She was very energetic and it very obvious that she truly enjoyed her job. Our food was excellent! I only scored 4 stars on overall because the noise level is a little high, making it difficult to have a conversation.

Took my wife to Dinner on the 14th. Arrived on time and was promptly seated in the main area as per our reservation. Waitress was exceptional and enjoyable. Appetizers of sausage and shrimp was as excellent as we remember having had before. My wife had the roast Duck and it was excellent as well. Perfect in fact. I had a strip steak, but instead of the menu steak topped with parmesan crust and sautéed mushrooms, It was said I could have the blue cheese crust as offered on the Filet. When the steak came, it had been cooked Medium WELL and was topped with the parmesan crust. Certainly not the Medium RARE and blue chees Crust as had been ordered. I did not return it to the kitchen, as I do not believe in doing that, only letting the server know to take the message back into the kitchen. As when this does happen from time to time, usually the manager or the chef comes out to apologize. Neither of them came out for a visit. This isn't the first time I have had a poor steak prepared by the Combine, and I am not so sure I will go back with my wife anytime soon. They have left a lot to be desired in my book.

waiting for food for a long time even though we could see our order sitting under the heat lamp window for a good 20 minutes. Steak was great everything else not so much. Having a reservation set for 5:30 and not recieving service for 25 minutes was not ideal, nor was waiting around for our check. we didnt get our check til close to 8:30 pm. It seemed like a pretty long wait for drinks, food and check.
