Saturday lunch menu is only a breakfast menu through 3/4p! Server was hard to find throughout dining - needing because some food came out not to-order. Otherwise, the food was good, and the atmosphere is enjoyable - casual or dressed up.

Service was meh. Waitress, young girl, was not attentive at all and kept calling me “love”.
The biggest problem is that my husband got a NY Strip Steak that cost $42 that looked and tasted like something you’d get at Applebee’s for $20. All in all the whole night should’ve cost cost $42. I got a burger and neither of us drank alcohol and the bill was $86! Total rip-off. Now I know why there were so many available reservations the day before Valentines Day.

Our family (my wife, Dad, brother, his friend and our young kids all enjoyed our night here. The hostess was very welcoming. We chose to sit outside in the airy bar/restaurant and had several of the specials including fish tacos and margaritas, a delicious salad, an Impossible burger and other treats. The service was fast and we really enjoyed the musician playing his guitar and singing. A very enjoyable night and a real bargain especially when you compare it to all of the overpriced places in the area. A nice find.

Very disappointing that the food quality has gone down. Great ambience and drinks, but not worth the price for the food. I got a steak sandwich that used to be sliced steak with peppers and cheese....now it’s an unappealing cheese sauce with bits of meat mixed in. Looks so unappealing and tasted as it looked. Still a good place to get a drink, but not for dinner.

The place looks amazing but that about all I can say. The staff seems to think they are working at a beach side bar shack. They have music playing way to loud and in the completely wrong style for the room ambiance. When walking in with a reservation we were ignored twice before someone offered some assistance as to where to sit. We were sat at a dirty table and the hostess just set our Menus in the left over food on the table. The server came by and apologized and wiped the table but sadly used a cloth that smelled of dirty water so the table had a lovely extra smell during our meal (sarcasm). The food, the food seemed as if it was plated in the morning, covered and refrigerated, then re heated poorly. I had the pork chop and my girlfriend had the shortrib. My pork was super tough and the tomato spinach stuffing was a mix of ragu and dried greens. The mashed potatoes were good but Luke warm. The short rib was cold and short on any flavor. Most of my girlfriends meal was cold. A hungyman pot roast dinner has more flavor than that did. The price was crazy for what you get and again the feel of the place is all wrong. Save your money and time and go eat anywhere else.

My recent Saturday night dinner with friends was great at CWS. Our server was great, the food was very yummy, especially the charred shishito peppers and brussel sprouts, our cocktails were creative and delicious. The atmosphere was loud, but lively and fun. Great craft beer selection, and also several vegetarian options will bring me back again!

I chose this place for my birthday brunch because I had great experiences there during past get togethers. This time, not so much. The food was mediocre. I waited 30 minutes on an order I placed and upon checking on whether the server put it in, I was told a few minutes later they were out of what I wanted (after I had waited 30 minutes). Some of the items were really good while some were rather gross (shrimp and grits looked like a pool of grease). Probably won't go back.

We loved the Brussel sprouts. The chop salad was super bland, no flavor, and mostly just romaine lettuce. Fish tacos were over fried. Beer and drinks were good. Service was great as they sincerely felt bad that we did not have a good meal.

If you're a millennial this is the place for you. The music is really great. Good selection! Right volume. The ambiance is just great. The food, however, was somewhat disappointing. We had 3 burgers and one fish taco. Burgers were sort of tasteless. Fries are supposed to be double-fried but I'm not so sure. They were NOT the least bit crunchy. Sort of soggy. The fish taco was fine. Chop chop salad was good as well as burrata. I had heard about the Old Fashions from a waiter in West Palm. Have to say they were okay... not exceptional. My 31-year-old son will be going back, us probably not.

Service wasn’t great, the eggs Benedict and other food was just ok, and we asked twice to have music playing inside. It was a special birthday brunch and they didn’t really seem to care. It was a slow sunday and they still gave mediocre service... the music outside was great but too loud. I really wanted live music and that is partly why i went there. But There weren’t enough fans in the part where the musician is or we might have sat out there. I really love the ambiance but I was moderately disappointed...

C.W. S. Bar was a good Gastro Pub experience. Inside bar has a vintage feel too it. Craft Cocktails, smokey Old Fashioned, Whisky, Gin, Rum, Tequila, and Craft Beer. Great outdoor space. Our server was fantastic but overall the service coming from the kitchen and bar was slow. We received our apps before our drinks got there and we put in our app order 15 mins after our drink order. Food was tasty and hot. Limited selection but what we had was got high marks. Can't say we'd run back immediately but it's got a cool vibe and is a nice choice to have in Lake Worth.

Have enjoyed CWS multiple times but for some reason our bill was excessive this time. I was extremely disappointed with this being that my dinner was good at best def not a $20 meal, 3 small fish tacos. My husband had a chicken sandwich, pretzel appetizer 3 drinks each about and with tip our bill was almost $200. I have had steak dinners with martinis that don’t cost that much. We asked if tip was included when we first saw the amount but was told it was not. I can’t imagine that being a $200 dinner in a casual place/bar.

I was very disappointed that the air was not working and I was not informed prior to being seated. I should have been informed so I could chose to stay or return another time This is the first restuarant where the waitress never asked if I wanted another drink!!!!! I had the special burger that they won the 3rd place award for. My burger was missing 3 things, cilantro, pickled onions and feta cheese. My waitress bragged about how great the brussel sprouts were, charged morning e extra as a side dish, and they weren't re uncooked. I will never return.
