    We were greeted upon entering the restaurant and seated immediately. Our server explained the menu and we explained we needed to make a 7:30 theater production. Our server was attentive, the food was delivered timely and was all very good.

    My boyfriend and I booked a table here for Valentines Day, because they were having a special. We were seated at 8pm, and we were there for an hour and a half and never even received our salads. No attention from the waiter or anyone else, and no communication about the wait at any point. The ambiance was cute. The drink that I had was pretty good. But I would not recommend this place, at least not on a holiday when there are a bunch of tables seated. Hopefully they can get more staff in there.

    We were seated at 7:45pm. We didn't talk to a single person until 8:05pm and I had to physically flag a waiter down for that. We ordered our drinks and our meals from a preselected valentines day menu which included a salad, entree, and dessert. It was 9:00pm when I asked for a manager just so we could just get our salads. From there we got our salads, and entrees fairly quick but never got our dessert. We had basically given up by then. We were there for 2 hours. The entree was 4 shrimp and about 5 ounces of pasta. I saw another customer order the steak cooked medium and it looked like boot leather. He didn't even eat it. Several other guests were complaining as well about food and service. The manager gave us our meal for free but I won't ever go back. The place wasn't even that busy.

    Made reservations,Hostess was impolite and inattentive and didn’t even hand a menu. The waiter was nice, however also inattentive. Our drink order was taken 20 minutes after sitting down. We then proceeded to wait another 30 minutes for it to arrive. Appetizers were never sent out yet showed up on the bill. The old fashioned was basically straight simple syrup. The food was over cooked and lacking in quality. I would not recommend going here as long as service like this continues. For this price you’d expect a better overall experience.

    Food and drinks were great. But service was some of the worst I’ve ever received. Took 45 mins for drinks we ordered after waiting 10 minutes for a server. Water wasn’t refilled until we had drinks brought to us. Wait staff didn’t update any table on timing for food or drinks. It was Valentine’s Day and it did not appear that there was enough servers. If you have an hour and a half and are patient, great choice. If you have something booked after and are expecting to get in and out of this restaurant, do not come here.

    The Cowboy Ribeye was excellent! Perfectly medium rare, juicy, melted in my mouth. The Braised Short Ribs tender and flavorful, although could have used a little more sauce. Bread Pudding and Chocolate Lava Cake were delectable! Service was great, smokey Old-Fashioned was very tasty. Would recommend!

    Reserved a table for thanksgiving. Seated and waited for 30 mins just to tell us that they ran out of the Turkey & Ham that was supposed to be the Thanksgiving meal. We travelled from Oklahoma for nothing 😂 We were with our kids and all of us were starving ended up leaving and we had a hard time finding a restaurant that was open on Thanksgiving at 7pm. So thanks to that.

    Worst thanksgiving ever. Decided to try their thanksgiving experience and reserved for me and my family. Got there on time for a good thanksgiving dinner. After 15 min a waitress told us they didn’t have thanksgiving menu left for the day so they would have to offer regular starters. Regardless, we decided to stay. 20 more minutes after, another waiter comes by to say they would be taking longer than usual to serve us any kind of food. After waiting on other 20 minutes for someone to take our order, we decide to leave, starving…

    Should have paid closer attention to some of the recent reviews. We ordered, but most of the food never came. Chili arrived, but was super bland. About an hour after we ordered, when they finally brought the burger (which was honestly pretty good) the waitress looked around and couldn't figure out why the rest of the food wasn't already on our table. We told her we'd just like our bill, and she comped the entire thing. She was a pleasure and seemed to be waiting on all of the tables and tending bar. They are just incredibly under-staffed, I suppose. But, I wouldn't bother going (at least, to eat) until they get that fixed.

    While the restaurant was visually appealing, the food was overpriced for what we received. For example, we started with the green beans which were overly charred. Also got the cowboy salad with steak. Steak was a rectangle on a plate, well done, with a salad. Never seen it presented this way and the steak was too tough to cut. Maybe an off night but will be a while before we try it again.

    We went for brunch so the noise level was low. Everything was great. The only issue I had was the lack of parking options, which, I suppose, is common for downtown, but still is an issue.

    I had gone there with as a group of 4 for brunch. We sat on the cute patio. The drinks were good, enjoyed the strawberry mimosa and the iced coffee. I had ordered the chicken and waffles, and they were ok, nothing special about either the chicken or the waffles. The waffles looked and tasted like make your own waffles you would find at a hotel, and the chicken just looked like chicken tenders. My friend got an egg dish that he didn't like, he felt a little quesy eating them. My other friend ordered a Mac and cheese pancake. I've never seen it before. She didn't like it. My last friend ordered an omelet which he thought was OK, but it took them a while to determine they did not have rye bread. Also the toast was not really toast, more like lukewarm bread. The service seemed slow as well. The staff was very friendly. It is also very convenient if you are staying at the Hilton Garden Inn. From a noise standpoint it was fine in the restaurant itself, just annoying whenever a self conscious motorcyclist would need to compensate for his inadequacies (IYKWM) I think if you acknowledge that is is a hotel restaurant and don't set your expectations super high, you can probably find something that is adequate, I just think there might be better brunch places around.

    We were disappointed. We were visiting Dallas and looking for a nice relaxing dinner. With a reservation at 6:30 on a Saturday evening, the restaurant wasn’t busy, but we felt rushed and were out the door in one hour. We liked the gumbo fritter appetizers. The fresh catch of the day seemed like a very common farm raised salmon although it was prepared well with garlic mashed potatoes and colorful carrots. The bourbon flight was very good. The biggest disappointment was the peach cobbler; hardly any peaches and lots of cake.

    Table/booth tables were the only options for seating. Service was very slow. Ordered the tacos and the tortillas were rubbery. My friend tried to order 2 different drinks on menu- but they were ‘out’. Guacamole that I paid extra for wasn’t fresh- a paste. Took too long for check and to pay- but restaurant not even half full and staff just standing around. No restroom- had to go outside….inside building commercial building. Would not go here again. Also received an email after to confirm I showed up. I’ve never had that happen.

    Space is okay. Weird set up between bar and main dining room. Sat at the bar. Bar service was okay. Not overly friendly or informative. Food was slow to come out…tacos and a salad for the two of us. Tacos were good. Salad was made wrong and ended up getting comp’ed. We were on our way to Stars game and parking is free at the Hilton Garden Inn when purchasing food at ElmCreek, so we opted in and hoofed it 1 mile to AAC. Easy walk.

    We just got an appetizer and drinks. I asked the waitress if the crisp green beans were like fried green beans and she said yes but they definitely were not. Luckily, they were delicious and so were the drinks. Drinks were pricey for the size I thought but they were good. It’s not a super dressy place but the ambience is nice. Not too loud either except for maybe when a game is on at the bar 😉 overall good experience though
