Great food! Great ambiance! I love the fact that they support live music in the village. The music was awesome. Amanda was a great server. Overall, a very wonderful afternoon.

The staff here is amazing. So very helpful in our decisions for dinner. The coleslaw that came with the rib dinners and seafood dinners lacked flavor I did mention this too the bar staff. The ambiance at the bar and the waitresses and waiters were fantastic!

It was really loud because of the band. There wasnt a single menu item that was even remotely healthy. We picked it because there was nothing else open. Good for a bar crowd but I wouldnt return for dinner if i have the option.

This was our first time at Misters for dinner. They were very accommodating, food was your average " bar " food, it was nothing special, but it was good. We were lucky to get a seat out on the patio to enjoy the view of Main Street and enjoy the weather.

Excellent menu and taste of food with very good servers. The woman sitting across from me cracking the bubble gum did not add to my dining experience but there isn’t much you can do about that...the pit bull under the table on my other side was not happy and agitated as people and other dogs walked by and their owners were on speaker phone with Ticketmaster for their dinner- their world and we were in it....I would re-think dogs for dinner...

Pretty loud. Food was good and a good selection of beer. Waitress was not knowledgeable of the menu. Did not bring bbq sauce or cole slaw with brisket sandwich. She said it did not come with coleslaw. We showed her the menu and she asked us if we wanted her to bring coleslaw. Other than that it was fun.

Food was good. Nice to sit out front with open air. We ordered bbq platter. Pulled pork and brisket were delicious. Ribs were dry. I would return.

Would not recommend. It seemed like it was our server's first day on the job... or she was just clueless. The restaurant was out of flatbreads and burgers during our visit. Also, it took us 20 minutes to hunt someone down to begin our bowling reservation. Save yourself the headache and go somewhere else!!

We went here for brunch on Mother’s Day and were there for 2.5 hours. They ran out of Texas toast and did not tell us so the breakfast sandwiches were on English muffins (not even toasted) and the breakfast meals came with Italian bread (also not toasted). The prices were extreme for breakfast food that was low quality. The waitress kept apologizing and we understood that it was not her fault. When there was a special occasion with a packed restaurant, they should have more people in the kitchen.

The service was great! Our server totally understood that we were on a much needed girls night and gave us the right amount of attention while letting us enjoy ourselves.

went at 5pm with reservations, only a few tables in use, but stood for 15 minutes before someone came to seat us. Those there were very noisy, there are no attempts to limit sound. Food marginal, beer flat. On its one chance to make a first impression, Mister's made a bad one.

Great to have a band play in the afternoon, music was great, the gentlemen running the sound was not very good. Multiply people told him you could not hear the guitar for the first 5 songs but he refused to do anything about it,

Made reservations for 6:15 got there early. Was seated at our table no issues. Never once had a server come over. After sitting there for half an hour went to the bar to get us a couple drinks. Eventually got a hold of a waitress to get an order of pretzels. Waitstaff appeared to be short, no management seen entire time we were there. Just another bad experience at misters. Couldn’t believe this was how the night began especially since we were seated right in the middle of the restaurant with reservations...doubtful I’ll return there again.

Don’t waste your time - terrible service and it took over an hour to get our meal. On top of that, they aren’t following NYS guidelines and tables are on top of each other.

The music by Emerald Isle was fantastic! or we would have left! Our reservation was at 1.
We were not offered a drink or order taken until 2 only because we asked. We got our own drinks at the bar. Food did not come until another 45 mins. Potato pancakes were not edible..regular pancakes with hunks of raw potatoes inside. Cornbeef hash was very good. It was over crowded and only a couple of waitresses. They were trying but couldn't manage. It was a Sunday brunch which they have every week. I won't go again.

Delish food! Fun atmosphere. BUT when you charge me 25 cents for a splash of cran in my vodka tonic, you have issues! I will say all employees were very nice and they work as a team.

We went there to celebrate two birthdays. Me and a friend got there after everyone else in the party. From the start they let us know when the server comes over to order two drinks because service was incredibly slow. Unfortunately the server didn’t come over at all. So when someone from our table went to one of the other servers asking for either a new server or someone to get ours we were met with attitude and told if we didn’t like things here we could go somewhere else. Most of us just needed our checks. When we asked for a manager we were told there wasn’t one. It wasn’t until they saw us just getting up to leave anyways that they had someone come over. We’ve always loved misters. And the only thing that saved the experience was the bartender. He’s ALWAYS there when we go and provides excellent service every time. He came over, calmed the situation, and will be the only reason we go back. They were understaffed for the amount of people there, and this was our servers first job, which in my eyes excuses slow service. I was a server, I get it. But it doesn’t excuse the poor attitude from other staff. I do recommend coming here but I recommend sticking to the bar and the bowling because those are the best things about this place.

Service was amazing, Brooke took care of us! The food was good but nothing too spectacular. Definitely recommend the fried fish sandwich!
