    A very pleasant surprise. My friend chose this place for her Birthday lunch and I have to say it delivered more than I anticipated it would. Walking in, I expected under seasoned bar flare but we had the Neat nachos, Neat salad, MOJO shrimp tacos, ahi tuna salad and a few drinks. I really really like the nachos even though I am typically hard to please especially with nachos. Everything tasted better than typical bar food and I would absolutely revisit to try other items. I say give this place a try if you are in the neighborhood, you won't be sad you did.

    We really enjoyed the whiskey flights, it was a great way to try different flavors. The mahi tacos were dry so not the best. The burger was good, maybe needed a bit more seasoning on the meat and the fries and Brussels sprouts were good. Nice atmosphere and friendly server. We will be back to try other dishes and other whisky flights.

    We haven’t been to Neat in months but thoroughly enjoyed our night. Our server Brea was familiar from previous experiences.. she’s a gem, cheerful, happy, enthusiastic Great variety of adult beverages. Our dinner was great, nice variety on the menu. Husband loved his whiskey burger. I had planko chicken which was delicious but could have been warmer and with less watery juice. Wished we’d asked for a high top. Tables for two are very close. We will be back, a neighborhood gem!

    I had the seared tuna sandwich, which I've had before. It's always delicious, but this time it was cool in the center, and not very seared at all on the outside. A lot of that good flavor comes from the searing. The Brussel sprouts are very tasty - highly recommend! I'm not usually a dessert person, but the bread pudding is a must. I usually share it, because it's so filling.

    We had booked a large table for a celebration. A couple of us got there early intending to preorder some appetizers for the table and have a drink while people arrived. They refused to seat us at our completely empty table until everyone arrived. There were seven of us crammed into the very narrow waiting area blocking other people coming in. I checked in three times. I finally went up, after our reservation time, and said, we’re sitting. Considering the price of their cocktails they missed out on at least $70 of drinks we would have spent while waiting. That said, the food was good and our waitress was lovely. She hustled and was attentive.

    Quite possibly the best burger ever! They use 3 cuts of beef in the patties and they are cooked perfectly. Lots of options or build your own. My only small criticism is the fries are just average. But the house-made onion rings are excellent. Nice selection of craft beers and cocktails. Our server Emma was outstanding - helpful and knowledgeable - took time to explain to us first-timers even on a busy night. We will be back!

    Food was good, but served so quickly that in order to eat our soup hot, our entree food got cold. Filet sliders were nicely prepared, but needed more sauce because overall the whole sandwich was dry. Shrimp tacos were good, would have been better if we could have eaten them hot.
