Great ambiance and live music on 2 nights we visited. Very social and welcoming staff who took good care of us on multiple visits. A great evening on Thursday with a local guitarist, whose music was very lively and good!

We are amateur connoisseurs of bourbon, so naturally, we sought out a bourbon bar. C.W.S. was a surprise! Indoor and outdoor eating and drinking. Two bars and love music. Super energetic servers, and a hands-on manager, who provided excellent alder ice and attention. The band kept the people entertained and after a few hours, people were dancing. The bartender is still learning about bourbon, but the manager came through and found what we were looking for in the back. He opened a new bottle and personally served Rhetoric perfectly in Glencarin glasses. We will definitely return!

We had a nice corner table inside by the open doors. The food was indulgent: bang bang shrimp, Mac n cheese, and chicken n waffles. I had the Blood n Sand cocktail, TWICE! It was delicious. Always a good time at CWS.

The food was ok. Nothing to brag about. I had fish tacos and a Cesar salad. Tacos were pretty basic and the salad was good. Then again it’s hard to mess up a salad.
We went on Sunday afternoon/evening. There was a live DJ so that definitely gave this spot more cool points. I’ll give this place another try in the near future. The ambiance was very chill. I’ll try a different meal next time.

First time there non alcoholic beverages selection was very limited. Charge for refills.. also out of a couple of food items but the Chicken and Waffles were great.
Plan on going back one night for dinner and see if they have the same issues.
But all an all a good experience..

We made a reservation for a group of 5 for a ladies birthday brunch at 12:30 for outside. it was clear when we arrived they didn't have our reservation
1. No hostess or greeter, I stood by the bar for over 5 minutes before I was acknowledged and only after I approached a server
2. The outdoor tables were all full so even though I arrived at 12:00 it was clear they didnt have our reservation
3. The nice server that I talked to said they would clear off this table -pointed to one where a couple was having coffee- and it be 15 minutes. A group of 5 that came after me and did not mention a reservation was seated at a table that opened up before the mentioned one for us (after we were told they were cleaning off our table now)
4. No one offered to get our drink order while we waiting while the other group of 5 was approached and received drinks

I have been here many times and normally there is a hostess (outside). I'm not sure why, but they seemed short staffed this morning when clearly it was busy.
I will say the singer was a lovely touch at the PERFECT level and I loved the name of the brunch menu but am disappointed in the service this trip.

My friends and I had the best time! We went for Sunday brunch and it was wonderful! The menu had a great selection and the food was delicious! In addition, they had live music and it was fantastic to be able to sit and enjoy great food, friends, and some live music. Finally, the wait staff, they were just PHENOMENAL! Some places, the staff makes you feel like an inconvenience but the wait staff at C.W.S made you feel like they actually valued your business! Our waitress was timely and just the friendliest person! I will recommend C.W.S to all of my friends and family! Keep up the great work!

The outside patio is great. Though the food was very good and service was phenomenal, prices seemed a bit too high. 2 burgers, the pretzel app, 2 beers and 2 mojitos were almost $95 after tip.

One thing I found worse than the cost were the chairs/stools: very uncomfortable.

With the Covid-19 issue you have to be careful what restaurants you choose. Had never been to CWS so I thought it might be a good change, we gave it a try.

Every person on the waitstaff had masks covering their mouth (not nose) or their chins , including our waiter. The place was crowded and safe distancing was not present. The food was just okay (hamburger), but the french fries were the worst i have ever had. Mushy and Limp. Drinks were okay. Noise was loud and that was before the band began. We reserved outdoor seating. We go placed in a large room almost totally enclosed by a canvas tent". May as well been seated inside. Don't think we'll be back anytime soon.
