Everything was quite nice except for the chairs. They were uncomfortable for all of us-even the younger ones of our group.

We had a girls night out and decided to try Connor’s Kitchen. It was a beautiful restaurant with a great menu. Our server was attentive and helpful with our meal selections. The food was extremely good. I would highly recommend Connor’s Kitchen!

Very poor service. We had reservations, and ordered shortly after we were seated. It took over 65 minutes for our food to be served. Bill was dropped with the food and no one else came to the table to check on us. We needed to pay, but no one available. The bar refused to help us and said it was our servers responsibility. As we left, I took a lap around the restaurant to find the manager, but they with no where to be found. Food was good, but not good enough for us to return.

We were seated at our table and then waited 10 minutes for a server to come to our table. During that time we watched three other groups seated around us and they were immediately greeted by a server. We were finally approached by a server after I went to the front manager and asked why others seated after us were already having drink orders and appetizer orders taken and we had still not even talked to a server.

There are other establishments in Fort Wayne where we will go and spend our money in the future.

This is our third time here and every time there are fewer and fewer people eating there and there’s always some thing that disappoints. Today it was the fact that they do not know how to make a poached egg beyond runny. They offered to hard boil my egg for my eggs Benedict.?!? And the staff is just not as experienced in creating a no problem customer centric attitude. The family decided today was the last straw.

We had reservations and were seated at a high top table near the bar. Unfortunately the table was also near the door and was quite cold. We waited 15 min for a server to even say hello. Waited another 20 min for our drink order to arrive. Both specialty versions of bar drinks were disappointing and seemed quite weak

After 75 min our food finally arrived. The crab hush puppies were quite good. Brussels sprouts were excellent. We shared the fried chicken entree which was pretty good as well. Overall food was great. Drinks were disappointing and despite empty tables the staff seemed overwhelmed and extremely inattentive and slow.

A party of 4 went for brunch, as we had never been. I was eager to try it! The ambience is very cute inside. I was hoping to love it. It fell flat on a few levels. There were only three tables when we arrived. I wondered why it was so empty on a weekend, now I know. Two of us ordered the pancakes & two ordered the burger. The burgers were fine/average. It took a long time for the food to come out, they weren’t even busy. The two orders of pancakes came out completely burnt on one side. Like black, charred. I could actually smell the burnt when they came out....... once we noticed we got our waiters attention. He profusely apologized (NOT his fault). He was a fantastic waiter & so super friendly & fun. That was my most positive feeling about our visit. Of course the waiter took off the pancakes from the bill. We sent them back and the two individuals chose not to reorder anything. The manager came by and gave a brief lackluster/bland 3 second apology ....... he could’ve went a little beyond...... maybe say he hopes we will give them another try etc....nothing. We won’t be giving them another try. I didn’t post a pic of the charred pancakes bc I’m not that mean.

Four in our party. Reserved in advance and requested a window table, were seated at a nice quiet corner table at the row of windows. Kristen was our server, she was very knowledgeable, prompt, and personable. The drinks and food were fresh, adequately seasoned and well prepared. Ordered two of the drink specials, cranberry margarita and Irish coffee. Tried the cornbread muffins with honey butter for the table. Yummmm!!! Just enough to whet the appetite.
As others have noted Mac and Cheese was excellent, filling, and a large portion. Green Goddess salad was crisp and fresh with a bright dressing and crushed pistachios was a nice compliment to the hot, crispy lump crab hush puppies that I ordered as an entree. Plenty to share with the table.
No time for dessert before the show. So happy to have options in Fort Wayne that offer great ambience, comfort foods with a unique twist and Big City food without the Big City prices.

Conner's is our new Fort Wayne favorite restaurant, and we eat out a lot! Their attention to detail is impressive, food is excellent, and service is outstanding. The decor and ambiance is yet another high point. Conner's has upped the game in downtown Fort Wayne.

We still had not received our entrees an hour after ordering. Repeated questions to our server about the whereabouts of our food resulted in the food bill being comped, and gift certificates to apply later. While this was appreciated, we still had $150 bar bill and had to leave for our event feeling hungry. We just got home from our event and my husband is currently in the kitchen making dinner. Very disappointing experience.

Really cool downtown bar/restaurant. The atmosphere is top notch, they spent some serious money on this place, it is really nice! Our server was really nice and attentive, she didn't know a whole lot about the beer selections but it was fine. Food was good, maybe a little on the expensive side for a casual bar/restaurant vibe but maybe that keeps it a nice place with nice diners, not overly crowded.
