    We requested a low table using the app to avoid the louder ambience at the bar and stage while making a reservation and was given a high-top which was difficult for one of our guests to sit due to physical disability. We stayed with the table as after we had waited a little bit after the “reserved” table we didn’t know how much longer a wait would be for another table. The Prime Rib dip sandwich was served without the jus, and it took 5 minutes to get the attention of our server before we could get the jus. 2 out of 3 pieces of chicken were fried to the point that either the oil needed to be changed or the chicken needed to be taken out sooner and the chips with the onion dip were cold (past room temp). Overall the experience was a disappointing way to celebrate 2 birthdays, which was a first time of such an experience. We had had to wait for a while for dishes before but not like yesterday’s wait. Thankfully the server who seemed to be supporting all of the high tops and tables nearby was positive and polite when stopping at our table.

    Good food, nice people, but the service is really slow. To explain further, we went there a few times over a week while a family member was in the hospital nearby. Each time the service was slow, but we never complained and aren’t the types to make a big deal about it. One time the table next to us complained and another time, the manager apologized to us even though we’d never said anything, but did notice how slow things were. We got a free round of drinks and a discount on our meal, which was really nice and certainly appropriate. Didn’t want to be a jerk in my review, but thought I should be honest just based upon our experience. We’d still go back, just not when we’re in a hurry.

    From seating to first cocktail, 25 minutes. Bar's fault, totally understaffed and bartenders socializing instead of pouring. After entrees served and 1 check-in, didn't see our server for 20 minutes. We wanted another drink, took forever for someone to find him so decided not to have another. Food is consistently good.

    After we sat down and ordered drinks, the server told us that they were out of a lot of things… she then listed 4 out of the 5 entrees, all burgers, and 3 out of the 4 kids options. Honestly, if we didn’t have a hungry toddler with us, we would’ve left. We got a couple sandwiches and appetizers, and a $20 pizza for the kiddo. The food we got was tasty, but it was not the food we wanted, and it felt manipulative for management to not tell us about the menu changes upfront.

    Guess they had not received several of their shipments, so half of the items on the menu were out. Our poor server had to give the bad news. Seemed like the kitchen was off with portions because of it.

    This is probably one of the best restaurants in Denver, hands down. I've never had fried chicken (even in the South) that was this good and the same goes for the cheap dinner salad, crusty bread, and the steak frites. To say we were impressed would be an understatement and this is now at the top of our list of favorite restaurants.

    We were one of the first customers on that Saturday, so it was nice to be able to take in the ambiance as the restaurant came to life. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. The food looked and tasted amazing. We were also able to listen to some live music before we left. It was a fabulous experience and I will be back!

    Loved this spot for our Galentines. Made a reservation and they were a little behind but were very professional and kind about relaying that. I really wish I could remember our waiters name. He was fantastic let us take our time and was really accommodating especially when we thought for sure we were going to like our appetizer but didn’t enjoy it so much. Our original choice of the deviled eggs was clearly a popular one since they were sold out which made us settle on the whipped feta even though we didn’t love it the main course was nothing short of delicious and so were our drinks. I’ll definitely be back to try more. Prices are always a sore subject everywhere lately but for the area and the quality of the food it was acceptable. Planning another visit

    We arrived at 4:00 for an early dinner. The service was very slow. Meals arrived right after 5:00. The fried chicken was great. The French onion soup was underwhelming. It seemed like they forgot the cheese but the server explained their version doesn’t really have cheese. The kid’s menu cheese burger was good but several reminders to get ketchup. We’ll go back because other experiences have been much better. The manager may have been focused on getting transitioned to dinner from lunch and thus too busy to notice what was up. Likely on us for going at an off time.

    The appetizers were excellent in our opinion. Yet we did not like our entrées. I had the fried chicken, it was too salty. The lettuce wedge was more of a crumble. The meatloaf was nothing to write home about.
