The waitress was amazing. She told us when we sat down that it was more of a tapas place. I feel like that should be advertised. Not something you tell someone when they are already there. We were told the plates were meant to get several items to share. The portions were so small there’s no sharing. The guacamole was brown. I asked for something fresh, they brought out more guacamole that was brown and said the spices they use make it brown. The slides were raw and the blue crab dip tasted like air freshener. The Imaginary Friend drink was described as as a sweet strawberry drink. It tasted like pine tree. The atmosphere outside looked great but we were placed inside. Won’t be back.

We have been to Edgar's Grille and enjoyed the food there and Edgar Above Broad has a better ambience. I love the location of the restaurant. Food was fine, but be aware that they are of a smaller portion. Great for large group where everyone can share the different things on the menu.

First time here, atmosphere was great and they had live music, which was fantastic. I would not recommend coming here for dinner.. just drinks and apps, unless you want to experience small portions of decently prepared food at a higher price. Portions are smaller, which normally I don't mind, but as far taste, quality and options, it wasn't spectacular or worth the price. Environment is great for cocktails and light dining, but be prepared to either eat before eat after.

So where do I begin. Let's start with the restaurant layout. This is by far one of the coolest and trendy restaurant layouts in the CSRA. The oversize checker board and corn hole games. The look over Broad Street is definitely nice.

Now let's talk about the food! Nope! Let's not.

The food was subpar at best. I had the jerk chicken with coconut rice and peas. I ordered two orders because the waiter said they were small plates. My wife ordered scallops, which was a really small plate. Though it wasn't under the small plate list.

They have to do better! To have the name Edgars in comparison to the food from the other one on Washington Rd is night and day according to my wife.

I was truly disappointed. Especially it being my wife's birthday. My hope is when we try again some day, the food will be better and have more flavor and do something more on portion size. Small plates that are good, people can live with the price, but bad tasting small plates just makes you mad!..LOL 😂 If I were gonna give it a score 2 out of 5 stars!

1st time at Edgars Over Broad. Had not realized most selections were small plates. Wife and I are not large eaters so didn't concern us. Food was excellent, I recommend to anyone but might want to review the online menu first.

The restaurant was nice and clean. Our waitress was very friendly. The food was a little hit and miss. Some plates were very good while others were not very good. They had live music at 7pm, unfortunately we left just prior. The plates were a bit pricey for the portion you received.

The food was very good but the portions were very small and expensive. The waiter forgot to turn in our order for our entree and asked us if we were ready for check and brought desert before we got our entree. When I asked to speak to the manager, she just said she was sorry and would get our food out as quickly as possible.
It was my first time there and possibly my last.

Wait staff were excellent as is the venue. We didn’t know it was a tapas restaurant as we didn’t see it noted on the menu online or in print. Spent $18 on a lobster roll and got literally cut in half a roll with lobster and it had a weird taste, not like a traditional lobster roll. Crab dip needs work. I make better. Steak was about 4 oz and also was around $16! Good flavor though. Overall food was so so and we won’t be going back.

Wanting to try rooftop dining for fun change. We loved the ambiance, and even for late July, they kept it fairly cool outside. The food, except for the nachos, was not good.Pork sliders way
too spiced and Waygu beef overdone. Server took forever to take our drink order and even longer bringing them. Then my least favorite for wine service, ESPECIALLY sparkling wine, wide-bottom stemless glasses. It’s hot, your hand is hot. That is a no no. I graduated culinary school and worked in our school’s restaurant. We never sat down to chat with diners while other diners were waiting for food or drink. Average food and poor service. Hostess was great.

all employees were very pleasant to deal with and was taking good care of us and those around us. the food could be improved on and was a bit disappointing. but where the food lacked the music, roof top area, downtown views & good service made up for it and we would recommend anyone to visit. was very clean - a bit hard to find the way in as you enter into the building down stairs and use elevator to 3rd floor to get there - we had to ask for help.

Food portions on the small side. The sliders were not enough to fill me up on their own, but food quality was excellent. Cocktail menu is fantastic, my girlfriend and I had 4 separate drinks between the two of us and all of them were delicious! Would highly recommend as a date spot or for happy hour after work.

Two of our dishes were very poor. The pork belly sliders were completely the fatty end of the pork belly. My husband had to leave one of slider says it was not edible.

The scallop dish was cold by the time It got to the table.

The kids chicken fingers and chips were interesting. The chips were so heavily seasoned that my 18-month-old couldn’t enjoy them. The chicken fingers were good.

The olives were great.

We ordered the churro dessert to go and it really wasn’t anything special. It was similar to having donuts with a chocolate dipping sauce.

Our guest enjoyed enjoy her bread and dip plate.

I have to say, our serving staff was phenomenal. It’s just a shame that the food didn’t match up to the amazing service.

Overall, I think they have a long way to go to work up to the standard of the main Edgar’s Restaurant.
