It was fun! But one of our friends meals was left off the tab and there was no urgency to get it to her, while at the same time the bouncers were trying to get our table off the dance floor. Also the server asked if we wanted a free shot and we could sign up for rewards to get so. We told the server that we would sign up but asked what the shot was since one of our friends has an allergy to rum. He assured us it was ok, but when we got the bill the “non rum” drink was on the bill which we were not expecting. We also loved the songs played but the DJ was weirdly disjointed with weird long pauses between songs.

Hostess was extremely kind and helpful on 7/10. I had a large group and we had a wonderful time. I would recommend this place to others. Only thing was that servers weren’t that great. She didn’t come to check on us but at least was good about filling up my friends on bottomless.

Been to this place twice now. And my second time the food was horrible. The drinks are always amazing but this time I would’ve loved if the food was on point like always.

Our greeter and server were very kind and patient, considering we had been seated only 15 minutes prior to the kitchen closing. :-)

Greeting at the door was great, however it went down hill from there. Waited nearly 15 minutes for server to show up at the table. Got water right away but when asked if our server was coming soon. The hostess had to tell her that was her table. Mind you there were several other people on the floor and no one thought to stop by and ask if we needed service.

The server had to be told more than once it was her table. Before she came over. All of this in ear shot of our table. She them approached our table and apologized for another server she said had to leave. That was not truthful. Once that was settled we ordered got our food then the bill comes and there is an extra charge for Something we did not order. It was only .75 so rather than trip about it, I kindly gave the receipt to the hostess and told her to talk to her about the up charge for something that was not ordered.

Overall good food, nice place. If ever in the area again may go back but I will watch my bill closely.

Food was decent, dressing for the salad was super spicy. Staff was friendly. They kicked us out after 2 hours on a Monday night when the place was empty. We would've stayed and gave them more business but thought this was bogus. Ended up giving our business elsewhere. Understand you have policies but if the restaurant is dead on a Monday, I would appreciate leniency if we are having some drinks and taking our time with food.

Four of us sat down for bottomless mimosas. The service was great and food was good but we weren’t given full “bottomless” they gave us three small vases for four people and the mimosas were room temperature. The other drinks looked incredible, next time I’d just get the margaritas.

Our server was very helpful and attentive. She said it was only her third day, which was impressive.
The margaritas are delicious. The 50 cent wings left a little to be desired.
It was quite loud, even on the outdoor patio with tables have decent space apart.

They LGBTQ burger they have featured for Pride month was really good! The bottomless mimosas were also surprisingly strong, I only got through two of their caution cups before I had to call it a morning for myself lol. I just wish there would have been a DJ or something.

The reviews for DSTC were very good with only a few negatives. I found it to be very comfortable on the patio with a wonderful server, reasonably priced drinks and food with plenty of space. All I would ask is that they update their digital menu to include the tequila and beer types. This was a great find and I would invite anyone to visit.

Food was pretty good. Drinks are only OK, but not exactly mixology. Music is waaaaaaaay too loud, but the service was excellent. Fine for Boystown, which doesn't really have any good brunch options.

L We had Robert N. as our server. At first he was sassy to our table and then he became outright rude and mean. He called us annoying repeatedly to the point it wasn’t funny and outright offensive. Wish we didn’t have to pay the gratuity cause he didn’t deserve it.
