Overall we had a great experience. They only thing that we found rather odd was that we went right at opening and were first to be seated. We were the only 2 in the restaurant. About 20 mins later, with an empty restaurant, they seated people in the very next table. Why is that. especially with Covid. We are 69 and would love to stay safe.

Overall dinner was good. I'm pretty sure we had a new waitress....she tried but hope she improves. Ordered a glass of wine while waiting for my sister. When we went to order or dinner and I'm ordering another glass of wine. Thats when she says bittles are half price. Had to get tbe boss involved to fix to a bottle.
We shared a sticky pudding with toffee sauce, we got a brownie with toffee sauce.
I could say more. But you get the idea.
My dinner was really good. Steak was cook perfectly.

Service was good but I was very, very, disappointed with the Clam Chowder. I have always counted on the best clam chowder ever at Earls. May I say, if I wanted to order Carrot Soup, I would have been happy. Why oh why did Earls change the recipe to include exceedingly mouthfuls of carrot to a perfectly awesome soup?!?
I do hope my voice is heard but will await a reply before venturing into Earls again for a bowl of soup. Sorry...one more thing: your cup of coffee is priced too high.

Yours truly,
Brenda Molnar

Hi Brenda, Thank you so much for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. Our Clam Chowder recipe has stayed the same for the past 20 years, but we will definitely be looking into this to see what could have possibly happened that resulted in your soup being not to your preference. We will be passing all of your feedback on and we look forward to hosting you again. Wishing you and your loved ones a happy and healthy holiday season!

outstanding service. food and drinks were really good. impressed by level of customer service, they actually split a portion of pasta in 3. was expecting to get a full bowl and 3 side plates and cutleries for sharing, but they actually split in 3 different bowls, that was unexpectedly pleasent.
only thing stopping me from giving a 5 star everywhere is the price point. for what it is, its very overpriced.

The service was beyond pathetic. I waited for my drink for 15 mins. And then ordered another drink which i never got. I ordered garlic fries as an appetizer. Then, when i ordered main course, she upgraded it to garlic fries without telling me about the additional costs. She did not come to our table once to check on us. I myself work as a server and have never received worst service.

We frequent this branch as you can track our previous reservations. It was really bad on Saturday primarily due to the poor attention of our server RACHEL. We waited a while to put our orders in, by the time she arrived we had decided on both drinks and food. It took 30 min. for our food to get to our table. My son was rushing, did not have enough time to eat, asked for a box to go. That took almost 10 min. For a box. Our bill took 15 min to get. I just wanted to pay using the QR code, but that was not working either.
We were close to the kitchen and could see and hear the chatter, which i am not against as long as you pay attention to your job, as long as uou get things done.
I have not given up on Earl's. It's one of my family's place to catch up. I sure hope we get better service next time.

Food was below usual standards. The happy hour brunch prices are very reasonable but sadly the quality reflected the lower price. The meals were served barely warm and also tasted like they had been sitting under a heat lamp for a while as all the items on my plate were dry, especially the potatoes, which were inedible to me. The food items seemed like they were prepared in advance and just reheated last minute for serving. The poached eggs were totally dry but I definitely was not going to be sending them back and risk a long wait. The fried chicken looked overcooked and refried like the potatoes.

I was with two young children and they didn’t seem to notice and luckily they enjoyed the experience but I was very disappointed in my meal. The service was warm and friendly but extremely slow. Overall, below average food, slooooooow service even though we were only one of a few tables when we first arrived. The kids enjoyed it so it wasn’t a total flop and they loved their drinks and dessert!

The waitress must have been inexperienced! She forgot our appetizers and brought our food then said ‘ oh do u still want them’? We said yes and she never offered to put them on the house so we asked the manager and she gave us a gift certificate.... the waitress rarely came back to offer us drinks , nice girl but poorly trained, food was excellent, place is looking run down though, need some maintenance or remodeling.... would go back though cause the food is good , fresh and tasty!

When I reserved table on line, it did not mention only for 2hrs.
However when we were served the table in restaurant, host told us it is only 2hrs.
It is not fair. If so, you should note before confirm reservation.
