    I love the Buffalo chicken dip but the Cajun pasta tasted pretty bland, not spicy or didn’t have a kick at all.

    We were so happy that one of our first dining experience is post pandemic with two kids ages five and two was so great! The service was excellent and we enjoyed ourselves as adults which isn’t always the case when you’re eating out with children! The server was very attentive and he took our kids orders first, refilled our drinks, and it was a nice touch to have the bendy straws and the ice cream at the end for the kids. This will be a regular dining establishment!

    I’ve been here about 6 times this year and will continue to come back. Food is delicious, service is always excellent, and it’s casual dining. Recommend making a reservation as the place can get packed quickly.

    It was a perfect place for brunch. They put us at a high top that easily sat 7. Everyone enjoyed their lunch. Best eggs Benny around. Great hollandaise sauce.. my daughter says her breakfast sammi was delicious. My friend recommended Lucys and I was very pleased. Parking was tough only hard part.

    Our server was awesome! He was energetic and super accommodating! Atmosphere is modern pub’y, high-top tables in outdoor covered area, staff seemed happy to be there as did guests. Food was appreciated by group, however , only feedback is everything came out scalding hot. The Mac and cheese dish is served in cast iron fry pan which never cooled down enough to touch. I should have requested that to be switched out since this was my 13yo’s dish and she kept touching it. Overall, will go back and recommend!

    First time going here and we’ll definitely go back. So nice to find a place so close to our home that was outstanding in food and service. Our server, Rose, was so nice and attentive to our entire family but especially to our son who has special needs. He really enjoyed the Cajun rigatoni. My Buffalo chicken Mac and cheese was delicious and my husband’s Cuban sandwich was amazing! Best truffle fries we’ve ever had. Perfect amount of truffle flavor, hot and crispy! Great beer too!

    Service was a little spotty. One entree was incorrect and the replacement was not delivered until everyone else had finished their meal. The server was very apologetic and they did comp that meal. So, I'm inclined to give them another chance as the overall experience was good.

    Was not happy with the floor manager's customer service. Harassing me and my group for a table. She said we've been there over an hour and she had another party coming in and needed the table we reserved. We was still buying drinks and food while she approached us about our table. There was already a table open for a party of 2. So I thought the party she needed the table for was for 4 or more people. Nope she took our table away to give the party of 2 our table along with the table that was already there. I will never host another group function there again. Unprofessional!!! Only reason I'm giving this a 2 star is because the waitress and food was great.

    Great place to meet a colleague for a working lunch! Our server was very helpful and suggested the "tots" as a side. Nice change from fries. Our food was delivered quickly and we managed to get some work done between bites of deliciousness. Can't wait to return after work for an espresso martini that I spotted on my way out the door.
