We were warned that there was a time limit on our seating, and we respect that. We ended up staying much longer, and did not feel rushed doing so. Effie (I hope I spelled that right), and her protege Thomas were our servers. Effie made us feel that we were at her home, and she was our warm hostess! She accommodated us, and loved joking with us too! Thomas is very lucky to have her as his mentor, he will learn the right ways to being not only a great waitress, but also a great host! The food was good, her carpaccio recommendation was bang on! This was our first time being out as a group since pandemic, and we were happy we had a fabulous time. Thank you again

Loondocks is our go to spot for occasions when we want to step up to an above average dining experience. For various reasons we are not usually fans of patio dining but we’ll make an exception for their rooftop patio. It’s a nice set up with a welcoming vibe.

Great night. Our server was funny and chatty. Not forced conversation, but genuine every time she checked on us.
The food was great.
Roof top patio is really nice.

We had a lovely lunch on the rooftop patio. My only "issue" was that the lunch menu was quite limited. I am not certain if that is the regular state of affairs, or just due to recent post-covid restriction reopening.

When it came time to eat at a restaurant in the first time in many months, the choice was easy... and Loondocks didn't disappoint! Everything was fantastic, from the service to the food. It was so wonderful to have the salad with beets, candied walnuts, and goat's cheese again! And dining on the rooftop patio is amazing. I can't wait to go back!

Been to Loondocks multiple times, this time celebrating a birthday. Picked Loondocks knowing my friends hadn't been before and it was a hit.

Service was quick, food was phenomenal as always, and the staff were very helpful and timely.

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Loondocks to friends for any occasion and will definitely return

We have been a few times. It's a lovely place and I would come back. The risotto is always delicious m I tried the halibut, I just wish it was bit more seasoned. The sauce seemed to be the star of the show but it was a bit too sweet in addition to honey added... I personally would have loved for a bit more salt and savoury. I love this place l, this is not a negative review, just hoping it's a constructive note for consideration that can be recommended for cooking style maybe ? Like ask the guest maybe if they would like more savoury or sweet ?... Idk. The fish was delicious regardless.
