Food was good, server was terrible. Grumpy, dismissive, slow and uneducated. I told her I had a dairy allergy and she said I couldn’t eat cheese, then I asked about butter and she was confused why I couldn’t have butter.
We had never eaten at Mudhen so we had a reservation for Wednesday night at 6:30, but clearly didn't need one as the restaurant was empty when we arrived at 6:15. This wasn't a bad thing as it's easier to have conversation in a quiet restaurant. I had the Mushroom Bolognese Pasta (vegan) and my friend had Gulf Shrimp & Avocado Chop. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a place to eat before an Arts District event as the proximity of the restaurant to the Arts District is only about a mile, and we were able to get in/out in a reasonable amount of time before our Winspear event.
The food was great, that is, what was still left!!! They were out of almost 7 things on the menu for Mother's Day Brunch by 3:00 PM.
The food was good, the service was fair to poor. Had to remind server of drinks, waited almost 20 minutes for iced tea.
The atmosphere is great.
The food was on the average side. I did like the freshness and overall quality of the ingredients. I got their version of a BLT and it came with an enormous amount of raw vegetables--carrots, cauliflower, and celery, but with no dip. The waitress came by and said, "Oh, you were supposed to get chips with that." By the time she returned, I'd already gotten through the sandwich and didn't really need chips, which was good because she forgot.
The chocolate avocado mousse for dessert was an extremely dense texture. Mousses are generally light, airy, but this was more like a chocolate pudding that went way overboard with gelatin. The mousse kept its shape on a plate, not held by a container. There was nothing with it, except 3 strawberry slivers. It could have used something. We got it as a dessert to share, but each of us took only one bite. The waitress did not notice we left the entire dessert. So, as a Mother's Day outing, we were pretty let down. It's a cool place, the decor, and vibe is wonderful. We walked away underwhelmed.
What a hidden local gem! I’m sorry it’s taken us five years to find this place, but it won’t be long before we return. My girlfriend is vegan and that can sometimes be challenging. Not for Mudhen “Meats & Greens”! The waitress crafted an awesome enchilada dish for her while I finally decided on the grain fed cheese burger. Both were great but there are so many other options we need to come back again (and again). AND, it’s right at the entrance to the Farmer’s Market. $1 an hour parking and more than just a lunch spot. Highly recommend!
Painfully slow service and our first server knew nothing about the menu. The restaurant was not that crowded and it took about 20 minutes after we gave our credit card to the server to pay our bill and leave. We had to go ask the manager to get our credit card from the server so we could pay. Tried to tell management of the issues and he didnt seem to care and just turned and walked away while talking to him.
Loved it! So fresh and impressive options made from locally sourced foods.
We loved it! The brunch was amazing and we loved the atmosphere!
Music was very loud
Good vibe Service was friendly but notably slow and disorganized.
We had awesome service by Creighton he was amazing and the food was
top notch with local fare.
Wait staff was over whelmed. Food was good but whole meal was out of sync from a service cycle. Long time to be met, long time on drinks and food.
Service was a little slow, we could see our food sitting in the window ready for several minutes. My friends eggs were luke warm. Very cute restaurant they just need to focus on customer service a little bit more.
Our server was hopefully having an off day but it was obvious she didn't want to be there. She couldn't answer questions about the menu, never brought us water after having to ask, and kind of just disappeared at the end of our meal. Food was normal brunch fair, parking is awful. Probably won't be back
The food was exceptional! I ate WAY too much.
It’s always good but the wait for your food is lengthy. Took about 20-25 minutes to get “crack coffee”
Mudhen is a healthy option for a Sunday brunch or a dinner before the show. They offer juices, local veggies and meats.
It can get crowded, and a bit loud, but it is a lot of fun.
The service there is normally exceptional, but it was terrible on Sunday. I couldn't tell you our servers name b/c she didn't introduce herself (maybe Kiki from the check??) She rudely told us she couldn't serve a mimosa before noon on Sunday (we were seated at 1130 for an 1115 reservation) unless there was food on the table. The TABC rule is in fact that you can serve at 10 am on Sunday with the service of food. So, we ordered coffee and waited for our drinks until the food came b/c she was hell bent on this rule that wasn't right. It was 20 minutes until the coffee came, and then only after we asked for it. The food was amazing as always, just a super disappointing service experience. We were seated at the far corner table in the Sun Room, near the patio.
Mudhen was good but very loud. We were next to a table of about 12 and the parents let the kids run wild. Never good.
I've been to Mudhen a few times now--both for weekend brunch and dinner. The food has been really good. I find their serving sizes generous but not over the top. I will say the mimosas we had on our recent Sunday brunch visit were pleasantly oversized--even when you order the smaller of the two size options. They come in the old ball canning jars. Tasty and lasted us the whole brunch. The menu is creative and seems to have something for everyone. You can be vegan, vegetarian or a carnivore. Of the four I came with we all ordered something different. And we all enjoyed our meals. Noise level can make it hard to talk if you come during a popular time--like Sunday brunch. But I've also been here on a quiet weeknight for dinner where conversation was easy.
Lots of healthy options... nice portions
The food here is excellent but the service is uneven, always seems to be confusion at the hostess stand. The wait staff was understaffed so the service was extremely slow, fortunately the food is excellent so I will be back.
Mudhen had a very fun and spunky atmosphere. We went for Easter Brunch and were not disappointed. The meals were interesting and inspired along with being very tasty. The cocktails we had were also exceptional. We were seated outside and their patio set up is very nice. The one downside to it, is it's proximity to the road which sometimes can get a little bit noisy. They did us more than 15 minutes earlier than our reservation which was fantastic considering we were there for Easter Brunch.
When all was said and done all the members of my party had an excellent time and I strongly recommend that people check out this fantastic dinning spot.
We went there for brunch and everyone loved their meals. The Enchilada Stack was amazing. The spicy Bloody Mary's were very spicy - think fresh jalapenos - but were awesome! We will definitely be going back.
Outstanding fresh food. The only downside is the build a bowl was not available and is my favorite there. Only available for lunch.
I love Mudhen but when I make a reservation on opentable and call and talk to the reservation person I expect what we talked about to be done ahead of time NOT when I arrive and have to wait for it to be done as if I was a walkin.
Second time here and it was awesome! My boyfriend’s fave brunch spot!
This place was awesome. My friend and I were there on business and I just happened to drive by and see the name: Mudhen - Meat and Greens...since we both follow a paleo lifestyle, I knew this was the place for us! IT WAS DELICIOUS...bone broth on the menu, local seasonal vegetables, grass fed meats, crazy good sauces...AWESOME. We wanted to sit outside, but there was a wait, so we sat inside. Inside was cold and noisy, and you couldn't really have a deep or private conversation because all tables are out in the open...no wonder there was a wait to sit outside! Nevertheless, highly recommend.

There was an event ending at Farmers Market so we had a little problem parking. But once we got into Mudhen it was worth the trouble. Local sourced vegetables were featured along with some more healthy choices. Everyone loved their dishes. Our only issue was slow service, we kept having to flag someone down. Considering how few people were at restaurant not sure why we had the problem. Definitely a go to location downtown
Great farm to table dining options from vegetarian to meat dishes. Local farm food and fresh, seasonal vegetables.
Located in the Farmers Market district which continues to be a vibrant area.
The server we had was pleasant and never made us feel rushed.
Service was painfully slow. I think our waitress was overloaded which caused things to take longer that they should. The people that arrived after us were served food before us even though we ordered prior to them.
Delicious! Can’t wait to go again. We were looking for a place good for gluten-free, vegetarians, and meat eaters. There was something for everyone here and our plates were left clean. It was pretty busy on Sunday so I suggest making reservations.
Drove from Oklahoma City for the weekend. Wanted somewhere with a good brunch! Very impressed, it had a nice vibe, good food and great service. Would recommend the crack coffee.
Great food! Fresh and well prepared. They carefully took care of our many food allergies.
Out-of-towners trying Mudhen for the first time. I went with the evening special, which was a cod filet on a bed of butternut squash puree. My son ordered the tomahawk pork chop, which came out slightly undercooked but the staff promptly returned it to the oven for a little longer. Everything was delicious and we could not have asked for better service. Our waitress was well informed and very knowledgeable about the menu items. If you are a coffee drinker, I highly recommend trying their Crack Coffee. We will be back the next time we are in Dallas.
Brunch is great! We love this place!
Love this place! It's super cute, in the heart of the farmers market.
This was our second visit to Mudhen, the first being shortly after they opened. Food after the first visit was mediocre - for me a salad with few toppings. We decided to try it again, this time for dinner. Unfortunately, our experience was negative. It began with the service. Waitress appeared fairly soon after we were seated, but, unfortunately, after that, only when we called her over. Only one of us ordered a drink, but, although it appeared on the check, it never did at the table. Food was even more of a disappointment. Steak ordered medium rare was rare. Salmon ordered medium was likewise quite rare. When we asked to have the salmon cooked to medium, it came back cooked well (with a rude comment from the server that it should have been ordered well done to begin with). Altogether, an experience that we will not repeat.
The server was very accommodating and friendly. The food was excellent. I also loved the coffee and Kirby.
Vegetarian bowls are insanely overpriced. Built one with 5 vegetables - quinoa, black beans, sweet potato, broccolini and spinach and it cost $25!
I could have a full weeks supply of all of those for that price. Flavor was bland and boring. Never again!
