The atmosphere & food was phenomenal! We really enjoyed our first dining experience at Haywire. It did take almost 20 minutes for the wait staff to acknowledge us and serve a glass a water... I think they were very busy with a full party on the 2nd level. But our waitress was incredibly great and very sweet. We will definitely be back.

My wife and I had to put off Valentine until Sunday night because of our kids activities. Our reservation was at 7:15 and had to wait for a while. The manager was absolutely amazing as he apologized for our wait and comped our first round. AJ our waiter was great as well.

Mixed review. My lady's flat steak was shot through with veins so heavy, or the knife was so dull, she could not cut them and ended up only eating about half of it. The pork chop I had was excellent and perfectly cooked. Her margarita was very good. The amber lager I had was flat … and still flat when I asked for one 'with a little life in it'. Either the taps are bad or the beer is. The guy next to us had what looked like a Belgian white and it was lifeless, too. Service was excellent. Seating was high-top and comfortable. It was super busy.

Good food, better service. It has a great location in Legacy will valet just outside if you don’t wish to fight with garage parking. Bar and seating on the first level, main seating is upstairs. We arrived on time and were seated promptly. Our server showed up pretty quick to take drink orders. I had the Haywire and the last had a glass of wine. We ordered the Lobster dip or maybe it was crab?? Either way, it was awesome. Not cheap, $17, but I didn’t feel like I overpaid for it. I got the bone in cowboy ribeye with a side of fries and she had the chicken fried steak. Both were tasty.. However, her mac and cheese was room temperature as well as my fries. My steak was definitely close to well done, but didn’t want to complain bc then the lady would’ve been eating alone while I waited for another. All in all, the experience was still positive and would recommend others to go. It was a busy Friday night (and Valentine’s Day), so I’ll give a pass on some of the missteps. But considering we had an appetizer, drinks and entrees, a $110 final bill was acceptable. I tipped my server (Lara) 20% despite the food being a little off. Not her fault, plus she kept my water glass full and made great recommendations while constantly answering the same question bc I couldn’t always here her. It was loud in there, lol (but not in a bad way. More of a bunch of ppl having a great time way). The complaint would be the lighting. We were sitting in an area that didn’t have great lighting, I didn’t realize how dark it was until it was time to review the check.

So to summarize.. You’ll enjoy the food, the drinks are good and reasonably priced. The service will be great! Double check your food temp and you’ll be fine.

Hope this helps.

Was a great Valentine’s Day with my family. Food was great, service excellent, restaurant was still one of our favorites. Only negative was the seating. We were placed on the enclosed balcony that was not a great temperature, the chairs were uncomfortable. With open seats in dining room, would have preferred to be inside, especially with young children with us.

He never rushed us, gave us detailed information on both bourbons and wines (and all were excellent) he was prompt and very upbeat. Really enjoyed his job and was super helpful.

The dining experience was top notch. Our servers Casey and Ernesto were great and always checked back frequently. However, the Greeting g Hostess for checking in are not engaging with the Customer. There is a sitting area where customers may sit md wait but the Hostess made no mention of it. We stood by the door and a liquor hutch. We noticed after standing around for 10 min that there was a place to sit and wait. Would have been nice to have been informed. I consider Haywire a high end restaurant and I expected better from those staff members.
Once we were seated, everything was Great!!

My wife and chose to try Haywire for our date night. Our first impression was that this establishment was going to be a great place to enjoy some good food. It seemed that most reviews we read were very positive and inviting, Our experience was the same.
The larger than life entrance with the main wall climbing three stories high full of chopped wood was impressive. The entry bar was inviting and the hostess station was professionally handled. We made reservations and our table was on the second floor. We chose the elevator over the stairs.
The second floor is where most of the dining seating is set. We were sitting near the open kitchen. Our waiter was April and although she was fairly new to Haywire she was knowledgeable about what their offerings were.
We ordered the Mini Elk Tacos and the Chip and Dips Trio, both were good. The tacos were flavorful and well balanced with seasoning with no gamey flavor. The trio was as expected.
My wife ordered the Chicken Fried Steak and I ordered their award winning MeatLoaf. The chicken fried steak had a nice crispy coating with a soft steak inside and it was all seasoned very well. The gravy was white with the flavor complimenting the crispy coating on the steak, it was yummy!
The Meatloaf came on a bed of garlic infused mashed potatoes and a side of green beans. The meatloaf was flavored with a subtle smokey chipotle flavor which added to its depth. The green beans had some garlic with some spices that gave your tastebuds a walk through a culinary tour.
All the food was simply amazing. The wait staff were attentive and available at the right time without being intrusive. It’s loud in there but it’s obvious that everyone was coming to enjoy there temporary retreat from life to be fed by such good food with a comfortable environment.
Overall, this is a place we will come back to again and again!
