Just New Year's Eve morning a friend showed me the NYE prix fixe menu Everyday Kitchen had posted on Facebook. The chef listed three appetizers, four main courses (pork, beef, fish, vegan) and two dessert options. ALL of the options sounded great!! And for the earlier eaters or those with party plans, the price was $5 cheaper if you arrived by 6pm ($35 vs $40).

Having no real dinner plans after our NYE movie, we went.

I had eaten @ EK a few times (2 lunches/1 dinner, with a large group - all meals very good!) but my husband had not.

We purposely ordered differently from each other, for a wider sample of the evening's fare. There wasn't a thing that was not delicious! The appetizer orders - his beet salad, mine fried artichokes - were beautifully plated and plentiful. His filet mignon was perfectly cooked and tender; my pork fell off the bone and the potatoes and carrots were flavorful and beautifully presented. (I have since gotten two more meals out of the leftovers!!) The only slight disappointment was that they ran-out of one of the desserts - not the one either of us wanted anyway - but had substituted with two additional desserts. My husband had the pecan maple pie and I had the pear turnover (with a side of ice cream!). Both were delicious and the portions were such that we ate about 1/2 of each and took home almost a whole dessert for New Year's Day!

The prix fixe menu did not include alcohol; there was a broad selection of "specialty" drinks and good, remarkably low-priced wines. The service was attentive and friendly, never pushy or rushed; thanks Daniel.

In any other local restaurant a meal like we enjoyed @ Everyday Kitchen would have EASILY been twice the price. What a great start to the new year!

We went for NYE set menu. The food and cocktails were delicious. We sat in the bar and I would have preferred the dining room which seemed cozier especially since we made a reservation. The server lacked in personality and could have made the experience that much better. Overall I enjoyed the food and drink as well as the quiet atmosphere and will return for a lunch date.

Our dinner was delicious and the seating was comfortable, although lighting was a little bright for dinner (seating at tables next to the bar). We are definitely recommending this restaurant to our friends.

We were so impressed after our first experience with Sunday Brunch, we returned for dinner the next Wednesday. Wonderful people make you feel at home. Very helpful answering questions. Range of prices and options to fit budges and appetites. Excellent food. Healthy and vegetarian options available and tasty! We recommended them to a vegetarian friend who called from the restaurant to say how much she loved it! Told several of our other friends, too. We have not been to their coffee shop next door but will try it soon. Recommend the pork shoulder, salmon, cob salad and roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon. We just became regulars!

It’s worth the trip to get a Hot Buttered Rum. It’s like drinking your dessert throughout your meal. It’s not for dieters though. Carmelized Brown sugar and ample whipped cream are just two of the ingredients. Special occasion drink!!

The atmosphere is nice & trendy, but not stuffy or pretentious. We were immediately greeted with a smile and seated right away. Our server was pleasant, attentive and knowledgeable concerning the menu and able to make recommendations.
Decent beer selection (me), but offered some really interesting cocktails (wife). We ended up sharing the kale / sausage / mushroom flatbread, cobb salad, and a burger - all of them delicious. For dessert, the chocolate cola cake, which was recommended by our server and very good - moist & flavorful, but not overly sweet. We will return.

While visiting my daughter for the day, found this hidden gem and were very glad we did! From the outside we weren’t sure what we were in for as it’s in a multi purpose facility, but from start to finish it was a treat. All of the staff were friendly and attentive, especially our server, Bridgette. The decor is cozy and fresh. The seasonal menu had many delicious options, for a starter, we had the sweet potato rounds, which were delicious. For entrees we had the Pork Chop and the Scallops. Presentation and flavors were outstanding. The best seared scallops I have had in a long time. To finish the meal the bourbon bread pudding was the perfect dessert for the 20’s weather! I wish I lived in the area because I would love to try again. Highly recommend!!!!

We tried Lodgic for the first time but were disappointed. While the decor was attractive, the restaurant was over-lit, creating a bit of a bus station ambiance. Service was good--but we were the only customers. We shared the Trio of Tots as an appetizer and they were tasty though they could have been cooked a bit longer. The spitfire chicken was good but the accompanying brussels sprouts were overcooked and oddly seasoned. The pork shoulder was a heap of shredded pork with sauce; nothing to go back for. The mashed sweet potato side was excellent and probably the highlight of the dinner.
While we were intrigued by the decor and tried to like the restaurant, we won't be going back.

I have had both lunch and dinner at the restaurant (as well as breakfast at the Clever Moose Café) and have been very impressed. These are clearly meant to be places you can go often, not places to save for a special occasion, and I expect that my family and I will become regulars. Some of us are vegetarians or veg + fish, so we appreciate the prominence of vegetables all across the menu. We wish there were more vegetarian entrees, though, and have mentioned that already to our servers. Soups and salads are excellent.

We felt that "Everyday Kitchen" was a wonderful dining experience! It was romantic and yet casual. Service was excellent, and the Spitfire Pork Shoulder, was the best I've eaten!
