    My food order was incorrect which resulted in eating some food first and then waiting for the rest. I ordered calamari and it was so dry I could barely bite it. This was my second time here and my first experience was way better than this one.

    Got there early for Brunch which was delicious. Had chicken wings with mambo sauce cooked to perfection and deviled eggs, so good. Mediterranean omelette with lamb and beef with zieke sauce and feta cheese also very good. Seating was excellent as was the friendly and knowledgeable service. Will return to take advantage of the bottomless cocktails, not just mimosas.

    I definitely would not go back. The food was mediocre. The only reason why I would go back is for the drinks, but to get the bottomless drinks you need to get an entrée when all of the entrées are horrible. It was definitely a place that social media hyped up but it wasn’t worth it.

    Overall a decent spot. The food was ok. I had the shrimp and grits scampi. The bottomless didn’t come out fast enough. I don’t feel I fully benefited. The service was good, but with bottomless keep them coming. I never want my glass to be empty.

    The fries were extremely greasy! Our server was great! Overall, this establishment has gone down with the quality of food and cleanliness!! The food looked precooked, and as if was sitting under a light to stay warm. The tables weren't very clean.

    They provided an excellent service. However, they used the wrong glass to serve sparking wine.. They used a white wine glass instead. So maybe training on proper glassware should be brought up.

    Ordered a hot appetizer… it came 20+ minutes later COLD. Sent it back. Cancelled the app, then waited another 20+ minutes after the cold app for our meals. The mains were fine, but at that point we were just ready to go. Don’t understand what was going on as the restaurant wasn’t even half full. Can’t imagine what it is like on a game night. I definitely wouldn’t recommend this place. One of the worse service experiences we have had in a long time.

    Visited Gatsby for the first time for a friend’s birthday and it was nice. The drinks and service were great. The deviled eggs were my favorite part of the food — well seasoned and extra creamy. I had the bolognese for my entree and it was okay. It could’ve come out hotter (temp wise) which was disappointing because we were seated right by the kitchen door and it needed seasoning (the meat was pretty bland). I would give it another try the next time I’m in town.

    I was excited to bring my out of town friends and eat at “the Gatsby” for a fun Sunday brunch. The waitress was nice and very pleasant. Everything was great until We notified her that we were going to pay our meals separate right at the beginning of the meal, so it wouldn’t be an issue. She said no problem, so we continue to enjoy our meal. We were going to order some drinks, until the manager approach our table with an attitude and spoke to us as if did something wrong. He approached us by saying “I’ve heard this table has an issue with splitting the bill”. If that was ever an issue. We were never notified, because we would have figured it out ourselves, and avoid the embarrassment he put us through. It was the first time we heard about the bill being an issue. Needless to say he ruined our Sunday brunch. We did not order drinks or order more food because he just killed the mood. The attitude that he approached us with, was as if we did something wrong or were even complaining or asked to speak to a manager. We never did! We all felt as if his aggressiveness was unnecessary. I will never bring any other guests back to this location. Sad because the coffee was good.

    I’ve had great experiences at the other Knead Hospitality group restaurants. GATSBY was just disappointing. The food quality was sub par for the cost. My medium-rare steak came out as a solid well done. Service and ambiance were fine but overall the experience was not great.
