The checks were terribly messed up. Wrong orders for our party. Server wasn't very nice. Asked for a coffee weve had previously that wasnt on the menu and got rude. One persons food didnt come out until others were done completely. They tried to make right by comping that persons food thankfully.

Beautiful evening with another couple. Few customers and three waitstaff—— our server had to wear a face mask, but he spoke so fast that he was hard to understand. We had four different items and only the meatloaf was well accepted.

They do a great job providing service in the middle of this pandemic, where we can only eat outside. They have a lot of space to eat outside and you can easily be far apart from other patrons. In addition, all of the wait staff are wearing gloves and masks and are very friendly. The service and the food is excellent! I loved the menu choices. The chef is very creative. I highly recommend this restaurant and I can't wait until we can frequent it indoors. Their decor indoors is unique.

This is a hidden gem that most people have never heard of. I have season tickets to Illini football and basketball games and this is my go to place for dinner before or after a game. You have to order the double pork chop as it is the biggest pork chop you've ever seen and cooked to perfection! A little sweet potato mash on the side and you'll be a happy camper.

They ran out of 50% of the menu. They should’ve told us before they seated us and we started ordering to find out half the menu was not available.

Thank-you for your feedback, we always appreciate the opportunity for improvement. After a busy Valentine's weekend we had unfortunately sold out of quite a few dishes. We will definitely do a better job of alerting our guests before they are seated. We are very sorry this impacted your dining experience with us on that evening. If you could send me an email, we would love the opportunity to make it right. -Betsy Waller, Restaurant Manager betsy.waller@lodgic.org

I dined at Everyday Kitchen on a Friday evening. The restaurant was not full when I arrived, yet it took quite a while for a server to bring me water or ask for my drink order. Once I ordered, my salad came before my wine, and then my main dish took a long time to arrive. While my food was quite delicious, the service and price point would keep me from coming back.

The decor is wonderful and the concept is awesome. I have had really great food there but was disappointed in the pot roast on the lunch menu. Also when you want a leisurely lunch with a friend after the rush hours, closing at three is not very accommodating. Thankfully we moved to the cafe next door and had some scrumptious zucchini sticks and dessert plus coffee!

Although it was not busy server seemed distracted and inefficient, my water glass was almost empty for most of the meal and I had to ask him for a refill. My companion's Chicken Pot Pie was tasty, with a lovely buttery crust and plenty of chicken, my Wiener Schnitzel was gross. It had been over cooked to just short of burnt in oil that was not fresh, leaving a bad taste that lingered. The wine seemed way over priced, I expected my $9 glass of Sauvignon Blanc to be a noticeable improvement over Winking Owl...sadly no.

This was our first meal at Everyday Kitchen. I had the pot roast and a side order of brussel sprouts, my husband had the pork shoulder and a wedge salad. The food was delicious; the portions were generous. The waiter, Eric, was great. He actually asked if my husband wanted his salad before, with or after his entree. Nice. He also asked if we wanted one or two checks, instead of just presuming. Also, nice. Our deserts were wonderful. My husband had the pecan pie with buttermilk which offset the sweetness so it was lighter and brighter than most pecan pies. I had the carrot cake - scrumptious. A large enough piece that I took half home. The manager came by and checked in with us. Betsy was very personable. Altogether a delightful evening. We look forward to our next visit - soon!

As always, the food was excellent. I especially like the beet salad. My biggest concern is that the music was too loud and distracting. I asked the waiter to see if the volume could be lowered and it was lowered a little. However, the music was far from soothing. My friend and I had trouble conversing comfortably. I'm an older patron and, judging from conversations I have with other seniors, finding a quiet place to dine in this community if a problem. I wouldn't want you to lose customers because of the noise level.
