    Everything was nice, except for drinks with broken glasses. It’s not safe. And both the bartender and the server should have noticed and replaced it before even coming to our table. I like Earl’s but would not go back there again since clearly, they are not going to be detail-oriented, and make sure the safety comes first.

    Food was good and they have a great plant based menu. High energy place after a movie. Super loud though... so don't go if you need to have a good conversation, but fun.

    Overrated. Menu says the steaks are 45-day aged. They cerainly didn't taste aged. Steak was tough. Service was fair. "crunchy ribs" were nasty. cook was holding phone while wearing food service gloves. not eating here again.

    The dining experience was great… food and drink (even bar service before the meal)… awesome. But the hostess was pretty curt, didn’t give a good impression. It’s not like there were other people in the lobby as we came in… just came across that we were a bother coming in. We were 10 minutes early for our reservation, so totally understand that we couldn’t be seated until then… but she seemed grumpy that we were there early. Then when I got the text that the table was ready, she asked if we paid our bar bill… which would also have been fine, but the tone was just super gruff!!

    Service was great! The manager and server noticed my friend was pregnant and they offered her a free dessert as a congratulations! Food was good, environment was pretty loud but that's expected since it's always busy there! Love the veggie options.

    The food was not good. Our server was nice, but absent and noticed that my plate had all what she delivered 25 minutes later and said, everything is good?, smiled and walked away. The food was NOT good and I was so disappointed. I put on my reservation that it was my nest friend's birthday and they did not even acknowledge it. I am SO disappointed. I have been there for special occasions prior, and had a great experience. This was so unacceptable and the food issues and concerns should have been acknowledged and rectified.

    It was a hot day (around 85F) without wind. The windows were open and the AC was off. It was so hot in the restaurant we couldn't enjoy our meal. The food was OK but nothing exceptional, we asked for two different cocktails and they didn't have any, so we had to choose another one. The service was OK.

    Used to be one of my favorite places. The menu changed and struggled to find something. Very loud and the hostess seemed extremely stressed. Our waitress was wonderful. I think they are obviously under staffed and the menu choices are sub par.

    Earl's was hopping on a Friday night with lots of energy. It was very loud, especially with fans cheering on playoff hockey at the bar. Food was good. The service was great and we appreciated the manager checking in on us.

    Food was good, service good, but the noise level was terrible, so loud-you couldn’t hear the person talking at your table. Couldn’t wait to get out of there to stop yelling to be heard. Too bad, as it was cute, and great menu, but way too loud!!
