Under staffed. Waited 1 3/4 hrs for food to be served and then was notified it would be another 20 mins as kitchen was backed up. We left without eating. Great location but not on a sunny weekend. Won’t be back.

I had the brisket and was disappointed. It was chewy and difficult to eat. Could have been cooked much longer. Not what I would have served to my guest.

We as a family were sat in the bar, waited a half hour for water. Ordered drinks and food at the same time. Apps came before drinks. Food was wrong. Manager subtracted app and 2 drinks as a thank you for not walking out.

Lackluster from beginning to end. Service was slow and inattentive. The food was warm at best and had no taste other than salt, frozen food reheated. Obviously people go for the drinks and can’t taste how poor the quality of food is. Would not recommend or return.

Nice place. Food was fine, not outstanding. The service was a little lackluster but we had a big group so it had to be a bit of a challenge.

We were celebrating a 21st birthday. Our waitress was very friendly, gave us just the right amount of attention and brought out a fun dessert for the birthday girl. Overall a very lovely night.

The service was great, and the outdoor seating is great. I was excited to have a Friday night fish fry, it was awful. My wife’s dinner was good, but my perch was very dry and almost inedible.

It's a great place to have drinks and appetizers but the food was a bit different than you'd expect.
My daughter ordered Mac and Cheese and actually didn't like it-Her boyfriend ordered chicken strips and the coating was very different and didn't like that either.
Prices are a bit high for what you get but like I said the atmosphere was nice.

Very disappointing food and even more disappointing how it was handled. The location is great and very nice and our server was “nice”. I ordered the Surf and Turf and my husband ordered the Cod. They were out of steak and no substitute offered. I then ordered the Mediterranean wrap and Brussels sprouts. The Brussels sprouts didn’t even have salt or pepper. Just plain and steamed, no flavor. The chicken in the wrap was so thickly seasoned with a Jamaican jerk it was not edible. The server offered to “comp” the wrap I took 1 bite of. Then tried to get me to order something different. I finally ordered a side salad which was 1 cucumber, lettuce and some shredded carrots. When the bill came I was quite surprised she changed me full price for the salad. There was no offer of any compensation for the multiple problems I had and no manager came over. We will not go back. Not worth $56 for some fried fish, a few beers and a salad.

Our server was fantastic, she was very attentive, professional and helpful. It was the first time I ventured out since COVID 19 and I was a little concerned but my experience at your restaurant was very pleasant it is obvious that your staff has their customer's safety as a top priority.

Menu has shrunk over time and had dropped the items I enjoyed. It has more of a college atmosphere now which is ok (its next to campus) but the food quality has also gone down. Beer is still great and unless you are going to sit out side I would find a different place to eat.

Love the view. Our waitress seemed new. Didn't check on us much. Our white chili was barely warm, but tasty. I had the quesadilla. It came with sour cream, salsa would be nice as well.
Overall good lunch.

The food was far from memorable. The cheese curds were bland and boring. The fish and chips cod was greasy and not good. The Salmon tacos had an odd texture. The best thing was the chips and salsa.

Our server wasn’t very knowledgeable about the beers or menu, but my reservation and the food were both perfect. The timing of the ordering and the meal itself was not rushed, not slow, which was appropriate for the occasion.

It was a Friday night so we anticipated it being busy. We selected a table outside, the weather was beautiful. There was music, however it was very loud. The waiter was very busy and did his best. He was not well informed on some of the featured drinks. Our appetizers and meals came out almost at the same time. The food was typical bar food. The biggest issue was the bees. We had to hurry and eat because there were several bees hovering around us.
