    Great service. The waitress called ahead of time to ask about our seating request. When we arrived the table was already set-up.

    Great restaurant we stumbled upon with a huge selection of new American entrees, craft beer (if you like that) amd decent wine. All sandwiches excellent, and restaurant very gluten-free, dairy free friendly. Great service!

    EVO's beer has always been fabulous over the years. However our first experience going to the Public House was excellent. The menu and beer were just great. Lisa is the best. She is a totally professional restaurant host with a positive attitude. She made fantastic recommendations on the food. The clams with the paprika broth was so tasty. The creme brulee was awesome. The chicken wings were fabulous with the blue cheese. Totally wonderful time!

    I have been there two time in the last two weeks at 6:30pm and they are out of the special "Fresh off the boat". I asked for crab cake and they said only can get in sandwich so I asked for crab cake with no bread and I would order two sides and make my own platter and they said "no". Very disappointing.

    Friends told us that it was really good food. That was not our experience. Burgers were improperly cooked to requested temperature. It seems as though a pub like place should be able to produce a great burger, particularly at $15-18. The next day they closed upon orders from Gov Hogan. Hopefully when they reopen, their goal will be on a higher quality standard. Oooops. Of course the beer is excellent. Definitely go for the beer and during the shut down, take a growler.

    We had a valentines day dinner at EVO. We made a reservation on Open Table and was contacted both by EVO and Open Table for reminders. After being promptly seated upon arrival, our waiter was very attentive and helpful. Service was outstanding, and our food was superb. I've had really good meals there before, this was even better.

    Great food, I mean surprised at quality. This isn't just "bar food" but real high quality meal that I would go for dinner or lunch. Beer is a huge additional to it all. Some great products and I wish would have brought my growlers to bring back with me. Next time I'm in town I will be going here for sure.

    Thanksgiving buffet had no roasted or fried white meat turkey, only fried dark. Sage & oyster stuffings were mushy. None of the food was hot. Poor dessert selection -bread pudding was atrocious but sweet potato pie was great..

    Beer was good, as expected. Food was the definition of mediocrity. This wouldn't be so bad, except that the menu and server's description seriously oversold it. My palette was not expecting a thin, salty burger on a bun that tasted like a wet sponge. Or a chilly that tasted more like a too-sweet tomato soup. The Brussels sprouts were good, though.

    We always make time for EVO when we are in Salisbury. The food is great, never had a bad dish from the kitchen. The beers are wonderful, and worth the stop. Service is excellent as well. If you are in town, you need to stop at EVO Public House.

    This was my boyfriend's and I 4th visit. Usually the hostess are not too welcoming to my boyfriend and I, but this time the hostess working was very welcoming. I am not sure if she was new or experienced. She had long blonde hair and light blue/green eyes. The wait staff has always been welcoming, helpful, and friendly. The food is always great. Those two factors alone have always kept us coming back. This visit was great as well. We actually came this day to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. I informed the staff it was his birthday, but I guess you do not get anything special for birthdays (i.e cupcake, song, or discount). That was fine with us. We just wanted good food, a clean place to eat, and to be served like we belong there. We got just that. Thank you. Great place to eat anytime. Will be back in the future.

    The food was delicious! The lump crab cake was filled with sweet crabmeat, and the peanut butter chocolate cake was amazing! Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The atmosphere had an industrial feel while still being warm and inviting. This was an awesome find on our trip from MA to the Outer Banks!

    We drove from Ocean City to Salisbury as our previous meals at evo public house were positive. We enjoyed our meal of steak and handhelds (burgers, briskets, chicken). All were seasoned well and tasty. And the spirits and beer added to our experience. We will be back as we really enjoyed our time and meal at evo public house.
