Awesome place to go for food. Food was amazing and wait staff was perfect. Will return for sure!!
Excellent food and friendly service
It was so amazing and had a very laid back environment. I went for homecoming dinner and it didn’t feel weird to be all dressed up while there were people in boots and jeans as well. amazing restaurant. Hopefully eating there again soon. Amazing food!
Ordered an $8 pepperoni sticks app and it only came with two rather small ones. Steak on the open face sandwich was good but came with cold mushrooms and nothing else but a small side of fries. Overall not happy with the value and food quality was fair at best. Service was good but when told about these issues waitress did not offer to accommodate us at all. Pre pandemic this place was awesome but I will not be going back for a while.
I enjoyed their previous dining area in the front of the restaurant. Did not completely enjoy the present sort of bleak area.
Everything was great and our waitress was the best. Food arrived quickly and was very good
The main reason for the poor review is because I did not feel that COVID-19 precautions were in place. Our waitress (Aimee) was serving us food immediately after she was bussing tables. When I asked her for a refill on my soft drink, she went to grab my glass. I asked for a new glass and she rolled her eyes at me. She must have missed the memo that restaurants are not to be refilling used glasses at the drink stations. I was happy with the distance between tables, but due to what I already mentioned, I didn’t feel safe and did not appreciate the waitress’s poor attitude. We will not be returning to the Hardwood anytime soon. :(
Our first time here and we loved it. Perfect neighborhood place not too expensive not to cheap. Really glad we randomly found this place:)
All 4 of us agreed that none of the food was seasoned at all.
Soup was not hot, appetizers not worth the price, crab dip was tasteless and not served hot. Waitress was very nice, but overworkednot her fault.
Do yourself a favor, go somewhere else. Service beyond poor and food just as bad.
Nice place to get together with friends and have an adult beverage and food.
I enjoy eating at the Hardwood, although, some of the items you do not get your bang for your buck. Also, we get the chip appetizer all the time and the last three times we get them given to us cold, which are to be warm etc....
Food was not very good and overpriced for what we received
Great food, service and atmosphere . Very nice people. I love to go to a restaurant that’s so clean and always compliant. I highly recommend it. 👍Eric
Everything was great at Hardwood Cafe. We have been there many times.
We took friends there we enjoyed everything.
Food was excellent! Service was great! We love it there!
Very good food, and service. Seated on patio, lovely evening. Low noise. My only complaint of sorts is the bourbon/whiskey list. The list had been touted as extensive and impressive. While it offered multiple selections, as bourbon lovers, we were not blown away.
I was told about this list from a friend, and I can't be certain of the origin describing the list. Therefore, I'm not faulting the restaurant in my review. Simply consider it a heads up.
They ran out of lettuce for our salads but had someone already out getting more. We weren’t in a hurry so we got our salads and our meals and everything was great.
We finally got back to Hardwood after all the quarantine ups & downs. We missed Hardwood and loved our meal there last weekend. Looks like Hardwood is following guidelines to keep diners safe. Our meal was delicious and the server did a great job. Looking forward to going back soon!
Love the Cajun chix pasta and salad with homemade ranch dressing.
Always have enjoyed the Hardwood Cafe and though C-19 has put a damper on the usual inside ambiance, we enjoyed being able to have a meal there. In somewhat cooler weather we might have enjoyed the outdoor dining. The service was excellent and the food selection was much as it has been in the past and it was quite tasty, as is per usual. We are anxious to get back to what might be called normal dining out.
We definitely give our approval on this experience.
It was a beautiful day and with the "walls" open it was great! Very spacious, very good food, great atmosphere!
nice casual dining,
menu very diverse. Strawberry salad always great.
Awesome chips appetizer
Dining room was like a dark dungeon. Ckicken was
overcooked. Green beans were bad flavored.
Hubby had crab sandwich very good with lots of lump crab meat. I Had chicken Marsala it was good but the $2 up charge for asparagus not worth it. Asparagus was soggy & only got 5-6 spears. Service a bit slow as our waitress has customers on patio & indoors.
I was happy to see the restaurant was following the governor’s social distancing requirements and all of the staff and most customers were wearing masks. The only thing that prevented me from awarding 5 stars was my wife’s sandwich was prepared using the heel of the bread. I suggest throwing away the ends of the loaf and serve bread slices.
First time eating here. Nice place. We will come back!
Very good first experience. Will be back.
Great little place for families looking to have an easy dinner. I ordered the Salmon, as it was their special, however, it was not very good. The Agave salad and house chips were great! There is really nothing special about this place other than it's easy to get to for a quick meal.
We enjoy going to the Hardwood. They have done an especially going job since opening up after the lockdown. Tables are spread out inside, more tables outside, and a unique way of social distancing at the bar. Good menu and wide selection of craft beers available on cell phone scanned barcode.
Love this place. Quiet place and the service was superb. Food was good and the prices are fair
Good service, consistently good food and draft list.
The service was great it did not feel like there any restrictions to enjoy the night out with friends even tho they had restrictions in place great job hardwood
Service was outstanding and the appetizer was very good. The ruben was not good at all. We got there during happy hour and the drinks were very reasonable.
Great as always
Great hometown place to eat and catch up with friends!
We love coming here to eat. I always get the Cajun chicken pasta which is one of my favorite meals anywhere. The atmosphere is great here and the staff does a great job.
It was awesome we had a wonderful dinner party of 7 and a party of 8 next to each other. Thank you Hardwood Cafe for making are kids Graduation day wonderful.
nice place-has a bar like a sports bar in back with music and a quieter place up front for restaurant. Food and service was great.
This place has it all. Bar area is busier and more noisy but has all the TV's etc for that atmosphere. But if looking for quiet dinner they have that too! in the original restaurant area that has been completely remodeled with a smaller quieter bar area there as well. They are doing it right here... Can't wait for summer to come back.. bar area opens up to outdoor with some limited outdoor seating. And by the way the food is great too!
