    We've been here once before, a while back, but hadn't gone back. Once we did, we remembered why we'd not gone back ... service is just awfully slow. And by slow, I mean having to chase down waitress for drinks. The food and drinks were good. If they could address service, it could become a regular brunch place, but ... Would recommend the food, but overall, not recommend the experience.

    Really good, a little pricey. We were seated in the back room, which was nice and warm, like a sunroom. I was pleasantly surprised that my orange crush was strong and tasty. Everyone really enjoyed their brunch dishes. It was a bit of a splurge, but worth it. A couple of my friends ordered Samoan donuts and I tried a bite, they were delicious. I ordered some to go, but when I opened them at home, mine were overcooked.  I’m not sure if they went into the container like that or continued cooking in the box. :( But the service was very friendly, and I would definitely eat here again.

    Beautiful restaurant on the Kiln Creek golf course. When I arrived I did wait at the hostess stand for about 3 minutes before anyone came and greeted me which was definitely too long in my opinion- servers walked by me and didn’t acknowledge that someone would be right with me either. We were seated in the enclosed patio which was nice. I wanted to get the soup of the day and a Caesar salad but there was no soup of the day made that day so I had to get the chili. The chili was not very flavorful at all honestly and Had a lot of beef that wasn’t seasoned enough. Caesar salad was a great portion but the dressing also lacked seasoning. A very cute place will maybe try one more time for dinner menu. Overall a beautiful place but the food could definitely be better.

    The cauliflower buffalo bites were amazing. The vegan burger was a little underwhelming - too dry - and the sweet potato fries overly salty. But the service was excellent. I was surprised by the location too, not knowing it was in the country club. Its a little hard to find.

    The restaurant was nice and appeared clean. The food however came out with cold portions. We both ordered the crab stuffed salmon with shrimp. The food was plated well but felt like it was sitting for awhile as portions of the food were cold.

    We made a reservation that was accepted by the restaurant, and then drove 30 minutes to get there only to be told they couldn’t accommodate us because there was a wedding. There were plenty of places in the covered patio (which is what we requested) but they still declined. If you don’t have availability don’t allow reservations and waste people’s time! (Obviously didn’t eat there but it wouldn’t let me write a review without rating the food)

    Tried Nest on a whim with my husband, and we were not disappointed. The restaurant overall is really beautiful, with lots of outdoor seating and a nice bar. The best part of our experience though was the service. The entire staff was friendly and made sure we had a great time at Nest. The manager even came to our table to check on us, and the waitress went above and beyond. I LOVE that they have so many vegan options. Truthfully, I'm not a fan of Beyond meat but they have a great variety outside of that as well. They also have great drinks (they don't have mocktails on their menu but when I asked for one, they made it and it was fantastic) My husband got the burger special for the day, with their AMAZING potatoes as a side, and a Back in Black Mojito. I got the Thai chili burger (vegan) with sweet potato fries, and a Fall themed mocktail that tasted like apple pie. We also shared buffalo cauliflower bites as a starter. We will definitely back, even if it's just to sit at the bar and snack on appetizers.

    It was overall a good experience. I did notice that the staff was struggling with the workload. Took me a while to get seated by the receptionist. The food portion was great. I enjoyed it (even the leftovers). Just hope that this place has enough employees to cover the busy hours.

    Cherrywood smoked wings are way better than you get at a sports bar. Jerk chicken tacos are very flavorful as well as the salmon. Our reservation was the last available, and I think the service reflected that they were preoccupied with getting the front and ready to close. I would definitely go back earlier in the day.

    The service was exceptional. But everything else was poor. I sat in the enclosed area but it was so loud from the fans you couldn’t hear yourself think. The mimosas taste as if I made them not a real bartender. My omelet was extremely salty, the potatoes were raw, and the biscuits were crumbly. I never leave reviews but I was so disappointed to spend my birthday brunch here.

    A reservation was made for a girl's night birthday dinner and we had a fabulous time! The food was delicious, the service was top tier, the atmosphere and the music vibes were amazing. Natasha kept checking on us to make everything was up to par and even threw in a few complimentary items for the birthday queen. She was amazing! Our waitress Danielle made sure myself and my girlfriends were taken care of the entire evening. We had a great time! I was also so happy to see more gluten free and vegan options on the menu! I will certainly be back! Thanks again for such a wonderful time!

    Food is always good. Service was good but slow as restaurant continues to be understaffed. I counted only 3 waitstaff for the entire space. My reservations were for Sunday brunch at noon...most tables were full. The noise level tends to be very high....don't expect to have a conversation unless you shout. I think it needs mentioning that this restaurant no longer excepts cash payment...only debit cards or charge cards are accepted and for someone who deals in cash when dining out I found this new policy surprising and somewhat off putting.
