    First time visiting The Woodlands location and was dissapointed. Beautiful facility and good service but all my party of 4 were not too impressed with the food. We had simple lunch fare of fish sandwitches, fish tacos, and a burger. All was ok but none of the items were good enough for us to come back for with so many great places in The Woodlands that do a better job. The worst items served were the waffle fries with the meal that tasted as if they had been sitting around too long.

    Had the blackened red fish, tacos and corn casserole - very good. Husband had the jumbo stuffed shrimp with grits- Delicious! So big, he couldn’t finish the whole order. Especially the deviled egg trio, antebellum of soup. Fun place to spend a Saturday night.

    We had reservations for the patio. We sat for 10 minutes without being greeted by the server. Service was good once we were greeted. Overall average food and experience at best. This used to be one of my favorites, but with so many options in the woodlands, this is probably my last visit.

    Seated 15 minutes before our reservations and believe it or not had food two minutes before our reservations. Yes order taken and served within 13 minutes of sitting down. Uncomfortably quick, overall food was good not great but definitely good. Service was on par with what you'd expect at this price point. We would do it again on another date night.

    Service was terrible seating at the entrance at the kitchen and still had to waive server down from hanging on the other side of the bar. Order a bottle wine she didn’t present the bottle of pour a taste just poured us two glasses and never poured again we served ourselves didn’t refill waters. At the end the most appalling approached the table and asked for our card without presenting the check for an almost $200 ticket… not the service I had experienced before. As well as another tabled kids running up and down the restaurant with no one saying anything. Another table got up and left.

    I love when we are pleasantly surprised by the food. This was the case at our friends' get-together last night at Hearsay on The Waterway. One at the table had dined here previously for lunch and was worried the rest of us foodies would be disappointed. Well, just the opposite happened! We started with cocktails and the shrimp/calamari appetizer and the meat/cheese board. Both apps were DELICIOUS! The flavor on the shrimp, calamari, and peppers was spot-on: sweet, savory, with just enough heat from the peppers. Perfectly seasoned! My sister joked saying all that was missing was some white rice, meaning she could've eaten it as an entree (we're Asian.) Everything on the board was tasty, particularly the smoked sausage - not your average smoked sausage! Spectacular. Entrees we all enjoyed: redfish sandwich, Texas ribeye, beef short rib, and the Byrd. Everyone enjoyed their dishes. My Byrd was perfect. I remarked how the egg was absolutely perfect, which too many restaurants mess up. They nailed it! My sister ordered the espresso chocolate mousse for dessert and insisted everyone taste it, because it was fabulous (and she's very picky about desserts.) The view from the terrace can't be beat, and the heaters out there made for a comfortable dining experience. Our server was very friendly and efficient, as well. Overall, it was a GREAT experience, and we will definitely be back.

    We had dinner reservations for later than we arrived, but were sat immediately. My wife and I both had the clam chowder to start. My wife enjoyed it, but I thought it was lacking in flavor. She ordered salmon with brussel sprouts and mac & cheese. I ordered redfish with mashed potatoes and an old fashion. The main courses and service were great, imely and delicious. I would say that the lighting inside didn't really make for the most romantic evening as it was slightly too dark of a room, but overall I'd go back and recommend it to others.

    Food was very good - it was a Thursday night so two of us had the steak specials. The food came out quickly - maybe a bit too quickly as we were wanting to enjoy our drinks first, but no complaints. Rachel was our waitress and she was very attentive.

    Bree was a phenomenal server, on the ball, funny and friendly. The hostess on the other hand was surly and unwelcoming, Hearsay would be better off without that kind of attitude. Everyone enjoyed their meals very much.

    It’s quite loud inside and the patio might be better for conversation. Our food was very good but both times we have been here, the service has been pretty terrible. Hostess walked us to the table for our reservation (not completely cleaned) and tossed the menus down and walked away. Asked to start with a salad and the server put it in to come with our meal, so we told her we didn’t want it since our entrees had already arrived. Wine selection was good and my husband really enjoyed his salmon. Everything pretty much comes with the same sides - brussels and Gouda grits which are actually very tasty! Definitely feels more like a bar with good food rather than a nice restaurant and not the same ambiance of the other Hearsay locations that I love!

    Went there saturday for a meeting with an old friend, the ahi tuna tacos were unforgettable along with the corn served. My friend ordered the eggs benedict and he loved them. The owners noticed our server was taking a little longer than expected with our drinks and complimented us with a round on them. Overall experience was nothing short of amazing.
