Service (6pm Monday evening), table and kitchen, was slow. Offerings for children was fair. We decided it's not a place to take the family.

I have to go at least every couple of months for the kibolsa dip. Chicken kale Ceasar was great and Beef on a Weck is always great. Perogies were average at best tonight but overall always a great experience.

I love the food here. We were a party of 8 and one couple asked for their own bill the rest of us split the other. There were a few items on both bills which was a little annoying. I’m sure it was an accident ...... but we will definitely go back.

Although the food and service were good, we couldn’t wait to finish eating to leave because of two things: the noise level was unbearable to the point we had difficulty hearing each other; secondly, the temperature was like a meat locker. Extremely uncomfortable. I would go back for the interesting menu and tasty food but will bring a sweater and go during the week rather than the weekend in the hopes there’s a more pleasant noise level.

This hidden gem was phenomenal! The food was outstanding and the service superb! The crab cakes were like nothing I had ever had before. We loved the sausage sampler platter that we shared as an appetizer. Overall terrific, casual dining - we will be back!

Not since I lived in Wisconsin have I enjoyed such good wurst and craft beer! And that was when the brats were farm-raised meat and craft brews were Point beer or other local brews. The sausages are excellent, sides are beautifully paired to the meats and the meal was simply wonderful. Go there, but go hungry!

my husband and i visited on a saturday night. the first thing we noticed was the extremely uncomfortable small metal chairs. the next thing was even though its called a tavern, the only beers available were craft beers. even though they had 25 beers on tap, none were popular, american beers. so we ordered mixed drinks which were waaaaay to strong. no flavor. just alcohol. the pierogie of the day was cheddar, kielbasa but was really just flavorless. the tavern fries were good. hot. fresh. the chicken schnitzel with creamed corn grits and potato salad was a waste. the grits were cold. the potato salad was not good. the chicken was dry. the roasted half chicken was good. we ordered the chocolate chip donuts for dessert. bad choice. just deep fried balls of dough. not doughnuts but the raspberry ice cream was good. sorry to say, one and done with the devil.

Food is always fantastic as are the cocktails (try a Red Hook if you like bourbon). We had an exceptional server. I tried a new dish on the menu. It was a vegetarian farro but I added blackened salmon. Super good. Love Devil’s Acre. Prices are a bit high but meal is good.

We went here for Mother’s Day Brunch. The website didn’t say anything about a fixed menu. However, we went to this restaurant specifically because they had gluten free choices on their regular menu. The fixed menu made it more limited than I would have liked. The regular brunch menu was not available.

The prix fixe came with soup or salad, but they never came out. We were offered to have the soup or salad after the entree (seriously?) or to have them packed up to go. Or we could have had them stick our entrees under hot lamps for 15 or 20 minutes. None of these were good solutions. We chose to skip them. The manager did credit us $15 for them. However, this was a special occasion for my wife and it was very disappointing. I’d rather have a good dining experience than $15 savings. The food is average. Cornbread waffle was good, but the short ribs Benedict was too sweet and the egg whites were runny and undercooked.

Fun atmosphere for a weekend night. A bit too noisy but a birthday party going on in the bar where we were seated so maybe louder than usual. Very interesting and different menu.
