About

Why Kraft House No. 5? When we started on this venture, we knew what our concept was going to be. We wanted everything hand crafted and made from scratch. We wanted craft beers, and we wanted craft cocktails. Our kitchen is going to be a chef driven scratch kitchen. Food with integrity is what we will be known for. Why the "K" for Kraft? Why not?? As for the No.5? Besides being located at 5 S. Liberty St, this will be the 5th restaurant owned and operated by the Pappas family.

Seafood options for Lent were especially good. Judge and Jury cocktail was outstanding. Service was great as usual. Our favorite place to eat in Powell.

Such a cute place with yummy cinnamon rolls and beignets.
To my surprise, service was terrible and the remainder of brunch was disgusting.
I got eggs Benedict. Eggs were under cooked and one yoke slid to the side of my plate. Inedible. I would have sent it back, however, my friends poached eggs were over hard and were reordered. The cook obviously did not know how to make eggs. Sausage and biscuits were ordered and biscuits were burnt and there was literally no gravy, but an egg on top of the meal. Friend then asked for toast and they tried to charged $4 for their mistake even though they burnt the biscuits. Waitress was oblivious to our 8 person party. Friend had to get up and ask for the check. After more waiting, waitress came over and had to take our orders over again to enter in to the system to provide checks. My order was forgotten as well the first go around. Pork belly was tough. No regard to service. My food came out and looked amazing. Had they had a trained cook on staff the place could have received 4 stars, minus one for the wait staff. Instead, I wish for no one to go in this place, unless you are looking forward to being treated like you are an aggravation and nuisance because you would like served by your server. Also, if you want a side of upset belly the rest of the day as I ate one of the two benedicts that looked cooked enough. Big mistake!!!! Such a let down for our monthly friends gathering.

This was our first time visiting Kraft House and will not be our last. We had brunch there to celebrate my wife and daughter's birthdays and it exceeded my expectations. There was something on the menu for everyone and at a reasonable price. I highly recommend the chicken and waffles for brunch. I can't wait to be able to go back and eat dinner there sometime.

Decided to try brunch, and I’m glad we did. The options are great! Portions are a bit small, and the food wasn’t as flavorful as I hoped, but I’ll be back for the service & pancakes! The kitchen needs to work on a few things, but the front of house was great. Can’t wait to come by on a week night this summer!

The food is pretty average for the price you pay. This was our 3rd or 4th visit, and I doubt we’ll be back. They need to improve upon their food quality, if they’re going to continue to charge as much as they do.

Loved our first visit & the pork chops we ordered. This time we had the pot roast which was great, but the skirt steak was tough no matter how I cut it. It was disappointing for a place that has great food.

Nice diner, good cocktails, decent beer menu. Made a reservation for Saturday night which I really didn’t think I would need but glad I did, the place was packed. Service was friendly but we were forgotten about a few times when busy; awkward because the servers are at the end of the bar 6 feet from you texting. Food was good. Simple fair, sandwiches, salads, etc. prepared nicely but it is a causal stop. Will return.

First time to this restaurant. They call themselves a "gastropub" and this is the first place of this nature that is truly a gastropub. The food is inventive, varied, and excellent. I had the Caesar salad and pork chop. Both were tasty. The caesar was unusual with walnuts, tomatoes, and bacon but tasted great. We can't wait to return.

Went here with friends for brunch on Sunday. The food was pretty good. I ordered the Avocado BLT and my husband ordered the pot roast hash (I think). The avocado the fresh and the bacon slabs were very thick. The interior is rustically decorated. Our experience could have been improved if there was a double door to help dampened the cold from the outside and if our server was a little more engaged. Not that they could have helped it, but there were loud, screaming/crying children behind us and there's nothing to buffer the sound. I would say my experience with food and service here is mediocre.

The food was ok, it was lukewarm when it was served to us, along with the coffee. Our waitress never checked back to see how the food was and never offered drink refills until we were done eating. I was excited to try this restaurant, but unfortunately had a sub par experience.

I really want to post a good review, but our experience fell short in every category. We were in no hurry and aren't the demanding type. The server was nice and helpful, but the speed of service was slow. There were only 3 of us at the table and both rounds of drinks had mistakes with a wrong beer being served each time.

Two of us, with different dishes, had the same opinion of the food. While the presentation was quite nice and it all looked great, the food itself was noticeably bland. Neither one of us could recall the last time we reached for the salt shaker at a restaurant.

Ambience wise, we sat at a high top table in the front and the tables were very close together. A person at a table next to us had to adjust how they were sitting just so one of us could sit down. The server had to move sideways and snake around where there were openings, to get to us. It's a modest space so I understand maximizing the dining area, but one table really needs to be removed.

Very disappointed. We booked a table for 7 for New Years Eve. There was no indication that it would be a pre-fix menu nor how much. So when we arrived it was a surprise to all of us that it was a limited menu and for the hefty price. Half of our party got steak and all of them were cold. Not just like warm but cold. My husband had to send it back TWICE because the first time was cold and the second time the plate was screaming hot but the steak was rare and he had ordered medium well. The manager took 1/2 off of everyone else’s steak and comped my husbands. He really should have comped his whole meal plus 1/2 off. For having a pre-fix menu, the food should have been hot and there should have been no problems. Very unimpressed and disappointed.

When I asked about an ingredient I was told that it was "probably " in the dish I was considering. When I elaborated that it was an allergy, the server did go back and check and came back to tell me it was only in a side item and that I could omit it. The dish came out, and the ingredient I had told her I am allergic to was in THREE items that were included in the dish. This was in addition to the side that was left off. I then had to order something else, which arrived about the time my friend finished her plate. They offered me nothing, and even upsold us on additional drinks. If you screw up an order for an ALLERGY, you really should do something to amend the situation.
