Evolution Public House
Reserved through Open Table for lunch. Arrived a little early and didn’t mind having to wait for our reserved table. However, we were seated four minutes before our reservation time in the overflow room. The dining area was empty except for three tables. But, we were taken through that room to the barrel room (overflow). Midway through our meal we received a call from the restaurant saying we were late for our reservation! We told the person on the phone that we were already seated in the restaurant and were eating. No apology was given by the person on the phone, just an excuse about lack of communication. No manager came by the table to apologize for the reservation mess up. We received an email later in the day from Open Table staying we missed our reservation! Food was okay. Not particularly special. My spouse and I agreed we should have gone to another restaurant. Eating out is not only about the food. It is, also, about the experience.

Everything was perfect!
We had a reservation and were seated promptly. The server didn’t show for about 5 minutes and took our drink order. I ordered water with my flight but it never came. We ordered an appetizer and our main courses. The pretzel appetizer was tasty. When our entrees arrives one was wrong. We had ordered the fresh veggies with the entree but it came with fries. When we pointed it out he server took the entire entree back and in about 5 minutes returned with the veggies on it. She should have left it originally and brought out the veggies instead.
I had hoped for a better experience.
Great server. Food was delicious. Place was quiet for a Sunday morning brunch.
Delicious dinner!! Awesome beer!! We enjoyed the evening very much!!
My group of 15 people thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday lunch! We arrived early and were seated right away. The server was friendly and helpful and our food was delicious! Always a great time here!
wonderful service and excellent food! Will be back often.
Food was great, server was awesome and made awesome recommendations. He also didn’t mind that we wanted to drag our meal out a bit. We had a lot of fun!
We came for lunch and were not disappointed. The service was great, a very good variety of beers, wines, and good mixed drinks. We will be back.
Love this restaurant! One of my favorites in Salisbury. Always great food, drinks, and staff.
We are used to eating quality food but since moving to the easternshore of Va there are few options. This is our second trip the first was a lark as I like drinking EVO beers. My wife even now enjoys them. But far and large the main reason we drive an hour to this restaurant is the flavors and the unique combinations of ingredients we found. The food is at least a 4 star if not 5 star restaurant quality in our book.. Looking forward to our next visit which will be in March. A friend will be in town from NJ and will be coming up for the vegetarian risotto and I for one of your special burgers of the day.
Wow!! We’ve definitely dined here before, but dining for Valentine’s Day was super amazing!!!! The service was awesome!!! Our server was (Erin W) and the food was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!! The menu they had for Valentine’s Day needs to be served EVERYDAY!!!!
Great food and craft beer. Make sure you sit at the bar or on the tasting room side for happy hour specials!
I love Evolution! We had such a great evening. The waitress was very attentive and the food was outstanding as always. Highly recommend!
Hannah was fabulous! We were celebrating a birthday and she was very attentive and energetic. The food was great!
I am an out of Townes who had Evolution recommended to me for Saturday lunch. Thought it was a great place and good value! Everyone(all 6 of us) enjoyed our meals.
The food at EVO is outstanding. I do not drink beer, but my Husband and sons love it. It is a cavernous restaurant, so it is very noisy. The bar is super noisy. The waitress was excellent, and service was on point. If you are looking for great food in Salisbury, this is the place. It is pricey, but well worth the quality. It you want value, go to Five Guys.
I have eaten at Evo’s many times. Food, service and value are always good.
Service was very good. Had the risotto and did not enjoy it. The Duck Flatbread was tasty.
Great food, great atmosphere. Server was a little slow getting back to us at times, but not that big of a deal. Never had anything but a great meal here.
Service was a little slow but very courteous. Food was on point! Very hot inside. We go back every year when we visit family.
Food was good. When our food arrived one order was not as described on the menu. We asked our server and she replied “ I didn’t make it.” She did come back later and said they substituted which we had already assumed.
Met a friend for Christmas. Excellent food, great service and patient with our long visit. Definitely recommend
The hostess was extremely rude. They will not seat you even if they have open tables.
EVO was a wonderful dining experience! The food was superb and our waitress was absolutely wonderful.
The food was great, the service was not. While we realize December is a busy time of year, the push to turn the table was very annoying. We were given our bills before we were asked if we were finished or wanted anything else. With the exception of one person in our group that had to leave early, we all would've bought another drink. It was beyond annoying that our server either ignored us (as in we could see her not waiting other tables, just chatting with other servers) or hovered to get us out. My family enjoys this restaurant and we do not seem to have those issues. But a work Happy Hour, for which we had a reservation, did not go so smoothly. Very disappointing.
went for the beer, oh to drink #3 on tap at the source. what more could one want in life? also stopped at RAR along the way. I was with a beautiful woman the whole time. It was like an oscar-winning Indie film. Is this real life? perfection
We had a great date night at Evo! We went early on a Friday evening and we were seated right away. They have daily specials and special beer and wine list, all of which are on a large chalkboard for everyone to see from anywhere in the restaurant. The food is moderately priced, but very worth the money! You will love whichever food choice you make!
Good food, priced well, a lot of gnats, but satisfying.
My friend, who is a culinary school graduate, had never been here and she liked it! My veggie risotto was a bit gummy and we noticed there was no vanilla bean in the creme brulee'. BUT the Brussels sprouts were amazing. Great beer and wine list. Our server was amazing! This place is quite loud, though, so it's definitely not a place for a quiet date or a meeting. The music was too loud to begin with and when the dining room filled with people there was almost an annoying din. The noise will make me think twice about a Saturday lunch here again.
Still, it was a good lunch and the start of a fun afternoon, so we will put it in the win column.
We had reservations for 2pm seating for Thanksgiving buffet and we waited in freezing temps outside the restaurant in long line for about 15-20 minutes. Buffet was out of plates, sweet potatoes, butter and salad dressing at various times. Also, sunlight beamed onto 3 of us at our table for most of our meal. Towards the end we wore sunglasses. Management appeared to be unprepared - we won’t be back.
We had a great dinner at Evo last night. The food is consistently good as is the service. Also, they are one of the few non-chain restaurants open for dinner on Sunday. We will be back soon. The pork shank special and thai curry mussels were wonderful.
Great burgers and beer! Meat lovers flatbread was excellent. French Onion soup was good. Open dining room with great food and service. No complaints here!
Was in the area for a short vacation trip and wanted to visit since we've had their beer at festivals.
Beer was awesome as always. The food was absolutely amazing. Had items from the brunch menu.
Didn't go to the tasting room since we got samples in the public house side.
Service was slow. Some food served cold. Needs improvement.
Awesome meal! Nice place to celebrate a birthday with a free dessert!
Always a good experience. Great staff and amazing food.
