The service was very good....we had two toddlers with us and our server was very attentive to us. The food was very good and while a bit loud, the atmosphere matched the upscale but casual vibe of the restaurant.

Love Kraft House. It is so cozy, quaint, and servers so personable and great! Food and all was perfect! Flavors in your dishes are amazing. We had the spicy shrimp and i had salmon with couscous and asparagus... the cousous was scrumptious!

We do not like this restaurant as much since it is now under new ownership. The fried chicken had a warmed up taste even though I know it came out of the frier. The one piece was just barely cooked to the bone. The Greens were plentiful but very bitter. The fries were very crispy and tender on the inside as they should be. The beer was cold and reasonably priced.

Upon arriving we had really high expectations for an evening of delicious food based on the packed restaurant and the food we saw on tables. We thought our server was really helpful initially - she gave recommendations for various food items and brought beer samples for my friend to try so she knew what to order.

We put in an order for the brussel sprouts appetizer and were super disappointed. Unless your bite contained a piece of bacon the dish had zero flavor. And I’m a brussel sprouts lover.

We then waited close to 40 minutes for our food. We were a table of 4 and the restaurant had cleared out by this point of the evening. This is when we were disappointed with our service - our server did not check in with until about the 35 minute mark and she seemed annoyed that we were questioning where our food was.

At our table we ordered two KH5 Burgers. Both were ordered medium and arrived well done. The roasted chicken had no flavor. Someone ordered a salad with beets on it and was not impressed. Apparently the chili was okay though. We all agreed that the fries were delicious and the risotto and asparagus that came with the flavorless chicken was good.

Overall it was a disappointing night. Based on what we saw there - lots of people and a fun atmosphere - we would not have expected that, but we won’t be back.

We arrived about 10 minutes before our 6:30 reservation. Our table was ready and was seated immediately. The food was very good and our server was GREAT!! This was our first time to Kraft House #5, and we will return.

Since Kraft House got a new chef some time in 2019, we noticed a vast improvement in the food. However, recently all 4 people in our party thought their meals were barely ok, and one of them had to return their meal and ask for a different one. Perhaps it was and off night and a fluke. I really hope so. We may give it another chance.

Good local place to enjoy. Food was very good and the atmosphere was good for a moderately noisy conversation. Small but accommodating and I would go back with a group of friends. Great beer choices!

We went to Kraft House No. 5 for brunch with Santa. This was our first time here, as we just moved to Powell in July. We had the best time. The food was amazing. They had a wide variety of drinks. The decor is perfect. Not to mention the Santa experience was the best we have seen so far this year. We have seen 5 other Santa’s this year. I would definitely recommend this establishment to anyone, kid friendly!

The salads were GREAT. I also looked at other Brunch items like the Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese and it looked very good. I ordered the Orange French Toast. It was disappointing. Made from Regular Flat Bread not Texas Toast. Although it was was large it was Soggy and just not that good. I should have ordered the Burger or a Salad.

Overall this was a good restaurant. It’s right with 7 adults and quite loud however service was great and food (overall was very good. Only thing I didn’t care for was unless you like whole anchovies the Caesar salad is not salty at all...almost tasted like sour cream to me. My husband cut them up and mixed them in and the salad was a bit better. The chocolate cake looked divine and the ganache frosting was however it didn’t get eat because the cake was extremely dry. I’m not a burger person but my husband and I had the special I think German beer cheese burger and it was amazing and perfectly cooked. We also had the Burrata appetizer and it was also amazing. They were out of my first wine choice however the bartender suggested another and it was great!

Not the same as it used to be. The scallops were great, but the grilled chicken wasn’t. Some of the items were creative as before, but others on the menu were no more than airplane food; unremarkable. Gone was the emphasis on the craft cocktails. The Manhattan was made with Gallo red vermouth. Where is the Formula Antiqua? Interior has been freshened, now the menu needs help.

The food was great and our server as well as the bartender were quick and attentive. The food, however, took nearly an hour to be ready. I would would eat here again, but only if I have no where else to go after dinner.

The hot chicken sandwiches were way too spicy.
The ribeye was delicious with perfect seasoning and cooked just right.
The potatoes were very dry and broccoli was undercooked.
French fries were delicious, though.
Overall a not so good experience.

Server was great. Thank you to Ashley.

I was surprised at how tasty the food was, given that this place wasn’t really on my radar until recently. The staff were super friendly and hustled to keep up during a busy Sunday brunch. I look forward to going back!

This is the second time we dined there this summer. The first visit was very mediocre. Since we like to support local businesses, we wanted to give Kraft House another try. Considering the fact that there were very few diners, we were surprised by the mediocre service.

We had a friendly and attentive server, but one of our entrees was salmon and served raw in the middle when it was requested as medium. Instead of taking the entire plate back, they simply took the salmon from the plate, which my wife hesitantly agreed to, but then it took about 15 minutes to get the salmon back and then it was very salty. So salty it was inedible. Meanwhile, the rest of us had finished dinner. The chef did come out and provide a poor excuse (he was new and didnt understand how the grill was cooking) BUT there was no reduction to our check, not even and offer to take it off.

Unimpressed with the food. Ordered mussels in lemon wine garlic broth. Taste was unbalanced and overwhelmed with acidic lemon. Mentioned it to our waitress who was delightful and offered something else. I kept it as it was near mid meal. The special of chicken burrata ordered by 2 others also was not as expected and they mentioned their disappointment in the taste as well as the lack of chicken. The service was excellent and we enjoyed the atmosphere.

It pains me to write this because Kraft House used to be my favorite restaurant in the city - prior to new ownership about a year ago. I thought I would give it another try. The food was ok- good not great. The menu was too heavy on steaks and did not match the online version- no real seafood options (grilled salmon). The cocktails were good and well presented. The service was slow and not particularly friendly. They didn’t have the bottle of wine I requested - menu seems to be off from what they actually offer. For the price there are far better options.

I have been to Kraft House No. 5 twice and both times received excellent service. The menu changes depending on the season. The first time everything was excellent. This time everything except the chicken dish on the summer menu was excellent- the chicken was just okay. The decor is trendy and has a relaxed, southern feel. Near the end of our meal, the restaurant started to fill up for the evening and it became very loud. It was also pretty warm inside on both occasions. Overall a good experience and we'll go back for sure.
