    My husband had to fried cod sandwich! He said there was very little cod and lots of breading! He was disappointed! My sister and I had the mushroom and cheese burger and it was delicious!

    We frequently eat here prior to a concert at the venue. Last night I brought a guest who had never been there and between the three of us we had several different entrées and appetizers. All of them were excellent; honestly, the Cheeseburger I ordered was one of the best I have had in a long time. Friendly staff and a relatively quiet night night in the dining area last night; here it was a November 10th evening and the garage doors were wide open – but it wasn’t uncomfortable – not too cold, just refreshing. In addition, my guest had explored the area during the afternoon and had stopped at the neighboring Gaslight Grill for a Turkey Reuben that he said was amazing! Kudos to the chef & owners.

    Overall it was a great experience. The reason I gave the service only 3 stars is that our server charged us for a beer I ordered that was out of stock. It's partly my fault for not noticing it until the next day. We ate there before a concert that was also happening there, so it was very crowded and noisy. Our 2 top was very close to 2 tops on either side. I had a chicken stir fry with a nice coconut curry sauce, with Farro, which was a nice change of pace from rice.

    The menu is limited. The chicken wings were good. But the cod was not very flavorful, even after adding salt. Did not care for the tarter sauce. Waiter was efficient, knowledgeable, friendly, attentive.

    Always enjoy eating and waiting for the concerts at Ludlow. The only issue I think that can be improved wpuld be the wait time between the orders taken and the actual food is served. Other than that, Ludlow is definitely a one stop concert date night ritual that anybody can definitely enjoy.

    Had dinner here and went to the Jeff Lorber concert in their venue (lower level). It’s a fun restaurant with open air seating near the sidewalk. A bit noisy next to the road but it’s part of the character of this site. The concert venue is wonderful. We had a great time eating excellent food and listening to incredible live music!

    Had reservation for dinner before the Al Stewart show. Were seated immediately. Ordered drinks and appetizers. Garlic Shrimp. It was excellent. Fish sandwich was even better; large piece of cod, lightly breaded and cooked to a perfect crispness. Server was friendly and attentive. Price was reasonable and well worth it. The entire experience was exceptional. Look forward to next visit. Would highly recommend to anyone!

    It was a beautiful day so the garage door style walls were opened. The staff was friendly and efficient. We ordered the burgers and they were the best we have had in awhile. Great selection of craft beer, too ( in cans mostly, not on tap though ) we loved that you could make reservations because we went to a concert there that night and were able to relax during the meal.

    Hamburger was burnt. Requests for items were unfilled. Checks were left with no directions so we used app to pay. Very frustrating. Fish was good. Drinks were reasonably priced. Food was quick just not properly cooked. Ex:fries/tater tots cool. Server did not come back within reasonable time to send food back.

    We had dinner at the Ludlow Garage before seeing a show. The food was fantastic and my friends from out of town had a great time. The show venue downstairs is dynamite. Full bar, nice restrooms and it had the most padded and comfortable seats I have ever sat in at a concert venue. I will without any doubt be back!

    Ludlow Garage is a cool place with lots of Music History. Reminds me of New Orleans or Greenwich Village. Downstairs has an intimate performance venue that hosts National and international talent. The street level eatery/bar has yummy casual food and a nice selection of beers and spirits. Plenty of options for veg heads, paleo, gluten free, and carnivores. Our server, Natalie, was super sweet, attentive yet not intrusive. The people watching inside and outside is superb. Big Garage Doors open weather permitting. Some OT eatery reviews moan about prices. C’mon people, gas and food prices are soaring. Ludlow Garage pricing seemed fair and food portions plentiful. Concert Venue prices for tickets & beverages are not as expensive as big theaters and arenas.
