When we entered, only 2 seats were taken. We asked for a window seat but were told those booths were being saved for parties of 4. We were then seated at a seat near the front door. The next two parties that entered were seated at window seats - each party only had 2 people.

Service was so so. Our waitress didn’t fill our drinks or stop at the table. Needless to say there wasn’t much of a tip.

This is the second time I have tried coming to this place since new management took over. Their website is misleading. While their menu has improved since the initial takeover, I would not know how it tastes since they only serve brunch on Sundays. This is listed nowhere on their website or on the menu. Their menu on Saturdays is limited at best. Out of the 4 of us, no one wanted anything that was offered. So we decided to go across the street where they actually serve brunch with a larger menu.

Would have been five star however, they were transferring to a new menu and didn’t have the appetizer, or a couple beer selections our group made the night we went. Would have been nice to know ahead of time what was off the menu when we first sat down and server went over everything

We had a wonderful experience! Our waiter, Sean, was very attentive and the food was presented in a timely, yet not rushed manner allowing us to catch up with friends. Nate, the chef, was so accommodating with our special requests and really spoiled us with the individual attention. Can’t wait to go back!

Dinner at Kraft House is always wonderful. Brunch is too. Savory waffle - sourdough and cheddar - with gently scrambed eggs and the addition of a drizzle of gulf sauce. Oh my. And the doughnut. Oh my. Different every weekend. Always delicious. And the 65 degree egg. Oh my. Be still my heart. Kraft House is a neighborhood treasure and we will definitely see us in a booth some soon Sunday.

I have been here several times but I think this was the first time with the latest chef. It was the best food I've had at Kraft House. I had the salmon and my husband had the steak. Both were perfectly prepared to our satisfaction and beautifully presented. The noise level is extreme. We were there on a very busy Saturday night and it was crazy noisy. Also whenever the front door opened we got blasted with cold air. They may want to look into installing an enclosure on the front porch to protect against this.

The wings as an appetizer were amazing. And we discovered tonight was retail wine night, so we got a great deal on great wine. For my dinner, I couldn’t decide- everything sounded great, so I let her pick for me! I got the half roasted chicken and it was delicious- unique but familiar flavors! I would definitely order it again...if I wasn’t so curious to try all the other entrees. Great job, Kraft House 5!! We will be back soon!

We took my mom and dad out for dad‘s birthday celebration. Pork shanks were particularly good and the chicken was well done, my wife got the steak special which she reported as being a little tough although well flavored. The waitress was attentive and was able to make suggestions that were on point. Overall a nice experience.

A group of six recently celebrated a friend’s birthday. The ambiance was great. The food was pretty good and overall we had fun. The menu selection could stand to be more inclusive though. When one friend, a vegan, asked the server what he would recommend for her he said, “French fries.” She was ultimately fine with that however since this was a dinner outing it would have been nice for the server to ask the chef if other, more substantial options were available.

I was hear for celebrating New Year Eve with my friends.
They only had $55 course meals. My server was very kind but the a-la-carte was not that great for me.
Rissoto tastes a bit sour (a bit weird for me) and desserts were too sweet.

However the moods were very good with rustic interiors. I hope I can visit again for trying other foods.

Initially upset because they gave our reservation away and had to end up waiting over 20 minutes to get seated. This is not the first time they said they had open tables and didn’t so be cautiously optimistic when making reservation.
They don’t honor reservations. Food made up for the mediocre service. Food was uniquely delicious and had great beer selection. Can’t go wrong with any of the appetizers- confit chicken wings are outstanding! Other drinks are under served- small pour for the price.

First time we tried this restaurant since they changed ownership and menu earlier this year. Much improved menu and quality of food. If you have not visited Kraft House in Powell for awhile, we recommend you go back.
Service was just OK. Incorrect appetizer was ordered by server and delivered to table , we tasted prior to noting the mistake. It was delicious however no offer was made to amend the mistake.

Recommendation: Would like to see a few vegan food options. Recommend fresh, creative Veg burger vs. frozen/prepared. We did not order the one on the menu upon learning it was not prepared fresh by the chef.

Went to the restaurant with a friend. Both of us enjoy different kinds of food And drinks. We shared two appetizers and two entrées and we had three different cocktails. Everything tasted excellent, presentation was very good, and served hot. Service was outstanding. Thank you Ashley.

The only thing we noticed was an identity crisis. The decor was rustic chic and the food was well above average but several TVs seemed loud and in contrast to the rest of the restaurant. Would personally prefer going there for a relaxed nice dinner without the sports bar ambiance which it is most assuredly not.

That being said we will definitely be going back.
