Love the bologna sliders they are a must try! Sat for 3 hours talking with my friend the staff was very nice and since there were open tables (we wouldn’t have sat that long if there wasn’t) they filed our waters and checked in every once in awhile! So glad they are back open!

This was a good restaurant overall. Probably wouldn’t go back because it was nothing special but food was ok, service was ok and it had a semi cool vibe.

I was disappointed in FNG. I love all restaurants associated with Troy Guard and was excited to try this place. To begin, one member of our party ordered a merlot. After a few minutes the waitress came back to say they were out, so our friend said any red blend is fine. A few more minutes went by and waitress came back to say they don't have any. How can a restaurant not have any red wine on nye and it's not even busy? Any who, we order an appetizer, and finish it before we even have our entree order taken. We finally have to call the waitress over so that we can put in an order for our food. The food was ok but nothing special and I do not believe it even came close to living up to the reputation of a TAG restaurant. One example, pickled onions that came with a sandwich were 90% thyme which was just strange and very off-putting. Once we were completely done eating and plates had been taken and drinks were gone we had to wait another 10-15 minutes for the bill as you could tell by the waitresses "oh sh**" reaction as she spun around and went back into the kitchen that she had forgotten. Also, keep in mind that the restaurant was near empty. Mediocre experience and not what I had hoped.

Nice ambiance and food presentation. Apps were super yummy as were the drinks. Main meals were not worth it sadly. Pork was tough. Chicken sandwich wasn’t great flavor…looked pretty! :/ fun spot with friends and glad they are taking reservations now.

It took 20 minutes after being sat to even get water - and that’s after I went to the host desk to let the manager know no one had greeted us. We were ready to order at that point, and did so as soon as we saw our server. The glass of wine I ordered took more than 20 minutes to get to the table, and our food took 35/40 minutes to come out but was good- except my hangar steak that I ordered medium which came out VERY rare. Our server didn’t stay around long enough to ask if we needed anything, nor did he check in with us until 25 minutes after we received our food, by which time we were ready to pay and get out of there.

As we were leaving my husband mentioned some of the lower points of our experience to the manager at the front door, who gave us $20 in tokens to use the next time we came in. As they were chatting another party of four got up and left the restaurant - they had been seated for 30 minutes without being greeted as well.

Maybe sitting at the bar we would have had a better experience? Not going back except maybe for drinks. Too bad, the food was good.

Nice little spot in Highlands. fun cocktails, and the food was good. My scallops were delicious but there were only 3; and the grits were not as good as I hoped. The Birria grilled cheese and the bison enchiladas were hits. Servers were nice and drinks and apps came fairly quickly but it took awhile to get our entrees. Not sure what the issue was. Would dine there again

Good ,fun place. Wine was terrible. We even made a second selection and it too disappointed. My pork chop was flavored well but severely over cooked.
Great server, great atmosphere. Probably just a bad night.

Had a reservation and had to wait about 20 minutes for our table. It was a Friday night and quite busy so it was understandable to wait. The food was delicious but took a while to come out. Service was good.
