I was a little disappointed in the fish special…..just not to my liking. The service was great. We had a air conditioner blowing on us and our server had it adjusted. Thanks for that! People were careful about masking up while moving about and we felt good about the distance between tables. I will be back!

Had a reservation. Waited 45 min. She forgot us! Tough steak, very expensive, no baked potatoes, everything has garlic! I hate garlic! Very loud. Waitress was nice. No prime rib on a Saturday night!

We have raved about the combine to many friends and have had fabulous meals there before. Last night the food was good, but not up to par. Husband’s ribeye was great and my salmon was great. Disappointed in our favorite asparagus and my risotto was under cooked. Again, not bad food, just not the level we have raved about before. Will definitely return, but ask more questions of the server about cooking choices.

Tried the Blackened Shrimp Scampi with fettuccine . Delicious (in one word)! Our server, Tara, was excellent (10 out of 10) making a great wine recommendation that instantly became our "go to" for future dinners. Paired the Scampi with a Plantation salad and my wife had the beef stew (soup) instead of salad. Could have made a delicious meal with a couple of bowls! Combine is predictably excellent.

Was seated menus showed up late, appetizer was good, we received our food 50mn later while dining on our granddaughter’s dish. My chop salad wasn’t chopped, our daughter’s steak was tough and my wife’s dish to say the least. Desert cheese cake was dry. In short it was very disappointing $200 later!

Son and I had bacon wrapped brussel sprouts as a appetizer, really good. Then my son ordered the duck with polenta. Very delicious. Polenta cooked perfectly with mushrooms. I had the cold smoked chicken with gnocchi. It was delicious. Crispy chicken but so moist inside. And gnocchi was in a butter and cheese sauce. So we got dessert to go and my son ordered gooey cake like dessert that came with blueberry ice cream. The blueberry ice cream was so delicious that I will go back to try their other menu items, but definitely get that ridiculously delicious blueberry ice cream again.

We had a great dinner out as a family. I don't get to get home often, so when I do, I expect to have a fun night out with family. Food was delicious, service was excellent, and the drinks were yummy! Probably one a my favorite places to go I'm QC.

If I could suggest just a couple things I would say, revamp the wine list. A place like this could do way better on the wine! Also, a vegetable and a side should be pretty standard on a plate with a steak, but the steak was pretty bare (but very good nonetheless).

We will be back!

Took 45 minutes to get appetizer. They told us we didn’t have to pay for it but it was on bill and we did. 2 of us got shrimp rose. Shrimp was over cooked and noodles were dry. The duck and steak were good. We have been here before and I got salmon which was delicious but they were out of it. Seemed like they were short staffed took forever to get a drink.

We have been to the combine before , First time was awesome , 2nd time I went by myself I enjoyed it very much . Last night was not a good exprience , they were just a tad busy , 2 --6 tops and a few tables , food took over a hour , our food sat in the window on a try for 15 min .no commincation from the server or manager . actually manager came over did not say one word and just took a dish away . drinks and appertizer came in a timely manner . but never go my plantation salad I order . when the food came it was barely warm . nobody came over to check to see how our dinner was . very disappointed in the overall service .. expect more from the combine . and yes we do understand the shortage we are in the restraunt busuness too . We will try again down the road hoping for the combine we feel in love with

The food was fantastic! We were unaware of how good the fried chicken here is, but our server, Michael, helped us figure that out. He provided excellent service and all of the food was wonderful, but really, you should try the fried chicken...you will not be disappointed.

The food was delicious! We started out with the bacon Brussel sprouts which were good, I really wanted to try the duck confit but it was sold out. My entree of the bolognese was amazing. Probably the best I’ve had - great flavor and texture served with two slices of toasted bread. My hubby had the walleye special which was seasoned and cooked perfectly. No room for dessert but I’m sure they’re tasty as well.

The absolute poor presentation was horrible….Food all dumped together in a black bowl! Noise level was absolutely horrible. The Hispanic weddiing noise was deafening even with the doors closed. Glare
from the wall of windows made it difficult to see my dinner partner across the table…. And I couldn’t hear her speaking at a table for four. Never again for your prices!!!!
