First time trying their $14 steak/salmon night. Everyone ordered a mix of salmon or steak and we all thoroughly enjoyed the food! The issue I had was with service. Although our server was very friendly, she was also very forgetful. And instead of taking away empty glasses and plates that were piling up, when I went to the restroom I noticed her sitting at the bar talking to the bartender. Plus the three picnic tables outside are falling apart. So much so that when the server put down my friend's martini glass half of it's spilled over because she placed it on a warped part of the table. Nothing that can't be corrected, but FB's just needs to be better managed.

The server was great, very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was nicely decorated and had a nice vibe to it. We sat indoors and the music (on the speakers) was a little loud but we got used to it and enjoyed the song selections! Food was great, and the drinks were very good! I hope to return soon

Invested and thoughtful service. Incredible food. My parents were visiting me in town for the first time since I moved here 7 years ago and I took a chance on a place I had never been and it was a complete blessing.

A day later and my mom declares to the entire family that she could happily eat there again today.

Thank you so much to the entire staff, front and back of house for providing me with a great experience for my family and I.

The food was ok--one appetizer and one dinner did not show up the way it was described on the menu. The place was really cold and they continued to leave the door to the outside propped open. The servers were very nice, but that didn't make up for the other issues.

Wine selection was fantastic.
Pizza was great. They were out of a couple apps but small menu means fresher ingredients and better quality food. Overall a great spot.

Service was friendly, had a Caesar salad and sausage/pepperoni pizza. All were generous and delicious. Enough for two. Margaritas were pedestrian and skimpy. Music by Ben Levin made the night. A good place for conversation and a nice bite to eat. We would return if in the location again. Clean and friendly place.

Awesome experience! Staff could not have been better. Chef Toree was amazing - greeting and chatting with guests. Food was delicious! It was our first time here since they changed over to FB Kitchen. Great vibe. A fun place to watch a game while enjoying a more “upscale” menu and fun cocktail or glass of wine - rather than the traditional wing and beer joint. Serving up delicious pizza and amazing pasta and sandwiches. I can definitely see this becoming one of our favorites. Patio is super cool!

We got one of their signature pizza and salads, mine a Greek salad and my husband's a Caesar. The pizza was delicious and big enough for two. I got the Greek salad and it was very good!
I felt the menu was pretty limited with only offering a couple italian entrees on their menu and they didn't have ice tea, which was a bummer.

Had a great round of dinner and drinks with my friends. They have a great whiskey selection and a nice roster of beers. We ordered the arancini and bruschetta as appetizers and were super impressed. The restaurant is more of a chill watering hole, sports bar, but the service and food were fantastic. It was a little chilly but their patio seemed nice and was very big. We finished with a pepperoni pizza and a Gorgonzola Pear (amazing) pizza! We’ll definitely be back with more people for Reds and Bengals games.

Went to FB to take advantage of half price wine night. Informed by waitress that only white wine was available for half off (no reds) and white wine provided after ordering was not the brand listed on menu, just the same varietal. So a poor start to the engagement. Ordered meatballs & bread for a starter and all I can say is that they were average at best for the price point. Decided to cut our losses and go somewhere else for entrees. Upside was that the waitress was very personable and polite. Atmosphere was nice. We’ll return in several months to see if they’ve pulled it together but for now it’s a no go.

Food was great! Got a pizza and it was big enough for 2 people! Our waitress was more concerned with talking to what seemed to be her friends at the bar but other than that everything was wonderful!

Not very full for a Friday night but the food was great - we got the bruschetta for an app and linguine and meatball sub for main dish. Wine was good too. Service was decent. Ambiance was nice and noise wasn’t an issue since it wasn’t full at all.

Love the casual atmosphere and the food was delicious.
Will definitely go back. Given the time of year, the indoor dining room is on the smaller side and unfortunately the front door that opens up to the first half of the dining room and a side door for outdoor dining that opens up to the back part of the dining room so it was a bit chilly every time the doors opened.

The service was outstanding across the board, which is often unusual for a new restaurant. There were were very nice wines in the $40 range. The artichoke appetizer was perfectly crisp and delicious. The pizza has that thin, crispy crunch and the pear-Gorgonzola mix was very good, although a bit more of the moist pear would have been welcome. My husband had the meatball dish and enjoyed it enough to take the leftovers home. We sampled crepe brûlée and a chocolate bite and both were perfect to end the meal. I look forward to to returning to sit on the spacious patio when the weather cooperates.
