At Culinary Dropout, raise your glass to friends coming together. A place where food and music are life. Join us at happy hour for ice cold beer and our famous soft pretzels with provolone fondue. At dinner, a signature cocktail and slow braised 36-hour pork ribs are a perfect pair. While you and your crew enjoy damn good food and drinks, a local band plays live for great vibes. Come hang out and stay a while.

Amazing atmosphere, great service, beautiful surroundings. Our booth/table was so comfortable and cozy for our date. We ordered the homemade potato chips and onion dip, and it was superb. We also ordered the fried chicken, and it was extremely moist and delicious. Drinks were fresh and worth the wait. We will be back again and again!

Food was tasty but the place was a little loud and a little expensive for the quantity of food we received. The Brownie/Peanut Butter dessert was awesome!

Noise level was fine until the DJ came and then it was so loud everyone at every table was shouting to be heard. We were warmly welcomed and reservation was on time. We were seated in the sun with no way of shading and our waiter relocated us. Very accommodating. Would definitely return.

We were celebrating a friends birthday and she ordered a dessert. Our adorable server told us it would take 15 minutes. Half an hour goes by and we are still waiting. We finally flag her down and she checks on it and says it’s coming out any minute. A few minutes go by and a manager comes to give us a coupon for a free dessert and tells us she will box up the birthday dessert for our birthday girl. Another 15 minutes go by… nothing. The manager then comes back to tell us there will be no boxed birthday dessert, they sold it to another table. So sorry. REALLY? Nice Birthday celebration.

We practically live at Culinary Dropout! We have taken many friends and family there. We love the pretzel fondue, the meatloaf and the fried chicken.
Our server was very friendly and attentive and we enjoy the lively vibe that the restaurant provides.
Tonight we ordered the corn lasagna and were very disappointed! The serving size was very small and I counted very few kernels of corn which made me wonder why it was called corn lasagna.
We have long patronized Fox restaurants and are generally quite pleased, but this evening’s experience stood out as a real disappointment!

The service was absolutely horrible. Our server was missing in action and took over an hour to take our order for dinner. Lousy customer service with no remorse. Our server seemed more into watching the basketball game than taking care of us. Would not go back there. Sad because it’s a cool place but not worth the headache. Get it together or there won’t be a demand for this place.

Thursday luncheon with relatives was enjoyable. Nice atmosphere and pleasant server.
The beef sandwich with au jus was very good as were the charcuterie (prosciutto, cheddar cheese, deviled eggs) items.
Salads were a misfire….drenched in dressing that ruined them…even though they were ordered with the dressing to be on the side.
