Kinley's Restaurant and Bar Ratings and Reviews
We had the baked oysters and unfortunately there were many shell pieces, large & small, in them. We also both had the rockfish kabobs. While the fish was great, the sides didn't compliment the fish. The vinegar salad, sour cream sauce, and the spices used in the rice and beans didn't leave the best taste in our mouths; it needed something sweet or hot & spicy. We surly will try again, this was unusual.
Made reservations, table for two at 8 o'clock. Got there at 745, promptly shown to our booth. Server was very friendly. Food took awhile because there was a large group in the same section, but our crabcake appetizer was out fast and was delicious. When our meal came it was great looking and tasted just as good.
First visit. Hosted a good friend and his family whom I hadn't seen in over 30 years. Service was excellent from the moments we walk in to when we left. Food was excellent. Pork chop was amazing. Wait staff was very attentive when needed - allowed us uninterrupted time to catch up and was right there when we needed a refill or dessert. Overall could not have been a better place to visit with friends over good food and cold drinks. Thank you!!
Wrote this message to kinley’s management but didn’t hear from them.... Hi just to let you know for the future. My husband n I are regular customers of kinleys . When you re-opened I ordered the paella which I loved so much ..the way it was plated and the flavor so last night we came for dinner m cocktails and it was a big disappontment. I ordered the paella again cause I loved it from the last visit but unfortunately the flavor taste different , shrimp was way over cooked almost curled and rubbery and my clams mostly are just shells. I’m writing you this cause I love eating at kinleys . I’ll send you the pics of my paella from the first visit and last night’s visit.
The food was outstanding! Our waiter was efficient but abrupt. Before my friends even had their coats off, he wanted a drink order. The place wasn't packed so I'm not sure why the rush but it didn't fit with a nicer place to eat. It also seemed like the overall lighting should have been dimmed down a bit for dinner.
I eat here frequently, but last night did not go well. My entree first arrived with the incorrect vegetables, and when returned (with no vegetables, they arrived separately later), the pork chop which had been ordered medium, was grossly overcooked (dry and white throughout). I ended up with a bowl of French Onion soup, being unwilling to wait for another complete entree to be prepared. So, not a terrific experience.
The staff was courteous and friendly. The server allowed us time to visit before ordering and was attentive without hovering or interrupting during our leisurely lunch. The food was excellent - top quality and perfectly prepared. Neither of us could finish our meal, but I trust my associate enjoyed her take-out box as much as I enjoyed mine later.
I have been to Kinley's several times every year since it opened. The food remains consistently good, but not exceptional. The wine list is worthy but one of the others in my party tried to order a mid to upper shelf scotch (Laphroaig) that they did not have.
My main objection to Kinley's is the noise. It is a very loud location to have a business meal or to go to if you have someone in your party who has trouble hearing. Unless you are in a booth the atmosphere is very exposed.
