Easter Sunday and food was sooo great. Parking was a real nightmare though. Service was decent, probably slower bc it was Easter Sunday

We were there early for a pre-performance dinner, so it was quiet and there weren't a lot of people there. However, the restaurant also seemed ill-prepared for dinner at 5:30. We weren't offered daily soups, specials, etc. and might have enjoyed them. Otherwise, we had a great dinner and it was easy to find menu options that fit dietary restrictions in our group.

Overall great experience. The waitress was great but we had to flag her down a couple of times. She seemed to be very busy. Maybe too many tables in her section. It was extremely loud very hard to carry on a conversation I could barely hear the music that was playing. The food was excellent, the ambiance is great, our server was sweet and as attentive as she could be. We will definitely be back. Just wish it wasn’t so loud.

We enjoy the food and ambiance at Mudhen, however, the past 2 visits we had, the service was lacking considerably, unexpected in comparison to our previous visits.

Parking lot in front gives parking tickets - have been there 2x before and no parking fee so why now? Restaurant says not their problem- they have a small sign saying free parking in garage in back

When I say it was quiet, that was when we first arrived at 11:30 AM. By 12:30 the vibe was more energetic. The entire experience, though, was, indeed, outstanding. I haven't been to Mudhen in several months but it's still great!

At Mudhen, the hostess stand is unnecessarily driving down the experience. We arrived mid afternoon, which appeared to be great timing since the restaurant was emptying out. Despite this, we were told there would be a 45 minute wait because of all the reservations.

I walked outside, pulled up Open Table, made a reservation for the current time, and walked back in to be seated. The hostess made a show of requiring a delay to ready the requested patio table, but when we were seated at the table, there was no silverware or napkins, only tiny glasses for the warm water.

Once we ordered, the food and drinks were good, the patio was nice, but we could never shake the annoyance from knowing we’d have had to drive somewhere else or would still be outside waiting the entire duration of our actual visit with a half empty restaurant (that never filled up) if I weren’t a regular Open Table user.

The food, bar and atmosphere was excellent. The service was not. Unfortunately, it appeared that the restaurant was extremely understaffed and our we barely received service. We had to ask for a waiter, ask to place our order, ask for drinks and ask to pay. Even the MOD seemed miffed and was not very friendly when we moved to the bar.

Mudhen used to be our favorite restaurant. As downtown residents we frequented the restaurant at least 1-2 times a week. Unfortunately, we have seen a huge decline in service. The waitstaff is uninterested and apathetic at best. It’s disappointing and no matter how good the food is - the poor service taints the experience of eating at Mudhen. If they want to stay in business they need to re-evaluate their customer service.

Mudhen represents the best of the freshness of the Farmer's Market. They create dishes that will meet the desires of the most discerning diner. The vegetable board is a masterpiece of goodness. I had the Betty Soo Bowl with delicious sweet potato mash and braised greens with an Oak Cliff Black Lager. The Brown Betty was served hot with fresh pears, nuts, and just the right amount of ice cream. I will be repeating when I return. Mudhen is also a great dining location before an event at The Majestic Theatre.

Organic food with a hipster twist. Tasty plates (mostly bowls of cooked-together foods) with creative textures served by friendly staff in a "farm-to-table" environment. Make reservations for brunch, especially if it's inclement weather since they cannot use the outside (cool) tables with a view of downtown.

We came to Mudhen for Saturday brunch. We had a reservation (which we probably didn't need) and were sat promptly. The ambiance is very rustic and comfortable, kind of barnhouse vibes. The brunch menu features a good balance of breakfast and lunch options. I got a double mimosa which is mostly champagne with a splash of OJ, comes in a mason jar and it was a steal at $7! My husband and brother got blood orange screwdrivers. For my entrée I got the veggie egg skillet. It was a variety of vegs mixed with the eggs, served in a cast iron skillet. Came with a side of multigrain "hippie" toast. My brother got the quinoa egg power bowl with a side of pancakes. He requested some salsa for the bowl and the waiter brought out a tomatillo salsa that was excellent. The pancakes were outstanding - whole wheat with hints of vanilla and cinnamon. They were served with butter, greek yogurt whipped cream, persimmon preserves, and syrup. My husband got pesto eggs benedict which he said were excellent. My son got the kid's beef hot dog with a side of sweet potato chips. Which brings me to my only tiny complaint. The chips were WAY too salty. And I love salty foods. But other than that, we had a great dining experience and will definitely be back.
