Location is hidden with no signs to find it. The restaurant is not very big. However, the food is really good and there is a nice view of the golf club with a spacious outdoor area with tables and couch. Fans on top of the doors are noisy but I guess it keep bugs away and also serrate the aerea. The service is ok. I feel they could be more attentive so I give 3-4 stars to that. Also some drinks we requested such as Sauvignon Blanc were not in stock. Same with a beer they had on menu.

I was disappointed at the Mother's Day limited menu, which had no resemblance at all to the regular menu I saw online. The food we ordered was bland. The cheese grits had no cheese or any other flavor. The steak was very thin and tough, not cooked as ordered. We had to ask for silverware, and we not only had to wait a long time for our food, but the bar service was very slow as well.

Went for breakfast. GREAT FOOD. A mix up with an order but quickly resolved the issue. Our service was great! Had a very attentive waitress and everyone was nice and provided great service. No complaints and well worth the $$z would return because I really want to try one of their Bloody Marys. Looked like heaven in a glass

Everything was great but the poor waiter had too many tables at once, including one very needy one. Kitchen got a little backed up so orders were a little slow coming out. We told him to relax and keep bringing drinks, we weren’t in a rush. The needy table left, plus one other, and he recovered.

Virginia Mules were WAAAY too sour, FYI.

Our reserved outside table had people sitting around it while the wedding rehearsal was ongoing. Outside table should probably not have been used until rehearsal had concluded. It took away from enjoying the view. The service was VERY SLOW. It took 20 minutes to get drinks from the bar. It took at least 40 minutes to get our food. I then ordered a to-go meal and that took over 45 minutes to get. It was my first time eating here and I don't know that I will return.

We sat on the patio on a Friday night. Music was a bit loud to talk. I wish they had Malbec wine by the glass... our waiter said they would have it in a couple of weeks.
Food was good and service was very good.... it was very crowded so service was a bit on the slow side but we didn't mind as we ordered appetizers and they came out quickly. We don't like to eat to quickly anyway so we were there from 6:30-11.
Our waiter was perfect, professional and polite and friendly... I wish I had asked his name so I could name him here. I've been here a few times and always had GREAT service so commend the manager for training his servers right or hiring the right people.
One other feature that might be added outside is a fire pit with chairs around it. Over to the side by the golf course, it looks like there would be room to add that.
I love this place and will be back soon.

Our server was nice and accurate but slow and unorganized; one person got a flight of beer at least 10 minutes before the rest of the table got their drinks; food was delivered to 2 of us and a few minutes later, the other 2 got their food. Three of us got good food, one got a small, burned, dry patty that was supposed to be a delicious medium cooked hamburger which had to be sent back and our friend said he did not trust the kitchen staff to cook him anything to replace it so he did not eat. The food was overpriced based on the portions and quality. For a place that takes reservations and had almost every table reserved in advance, they did not seem ready to deal with the small dinner crowd. Even though my food was good, based on the overall experience, I will probably not return. Too many restaurants that are phenomenal to keep going to those that are only okay.

The venue is beautiful, however service is BEYOND slow. Our server actively avoided our table throughout the meal. The Restaurant did not staff the kitchen appropriately. It took 72 minutes after ordering for a majority of the table to be served cold entrees for brunch. It took an additional 11 minutes for the final entree to arrive to the table. We had to beg for an update on our food three times. As a previous Restaurant Manager, I was severely disappointed in the experience overall. We did not receive an apology or a discount for the excessive wait time. The food was good, not great. It felt as though our presence in the Restaurant was a nuisance. I understand that it was Easter and the Restaurant was full and busy. But I cannot accept that our server would not bring us an update on our food status and had a manager drop our food with no mention of an issue in the kitchen. My family is very forgiving, so we dealt with it. But I was moments away from cancelling our orders and leaving for Cracker Barrel once we had waited for over an hour.

Reserved a brunch table which was not available. I stayed one hour at the table eventually provided and there were still many (5-10) empty tables when I left. Resturant was not busy. I was served raw (not what I ordered) greasy eggs and flavorless toasted bread which I had to remind them to serve. Bread arrived late so the unappealing eggs were now cold. I didn’t know the eggs were raw until the bread arrived as I enjoy toast with my eggs. I struggled to figure out what I could possibly consume from what was presented to me and I ended up with eating the cold piece of toasted bread and water. Waite staff was friendly though and gets five stars and my usual 30% tip. The cost was not high, but I would not go to Nest Resturant again even if meal was complimentary.

I suspect all the great reviews are from locals stuck with the place in their backyard.

Really disappointed in my experience at Nest Kitchen & Taphouse. We were a party of 3 with reservations. They had to hurriedly find us a table and we were seated next to the entry doorway with entry and exit traffic constant throughout our meal. The noise level was extremely loud. We really had to raise our voices just to engage in normal conversation. I ordered the scallop taco meal and received two on my entrée. One of them only had a single scallop on it. The second taco did have three scallops. The accompanying slaw was good and flavorful. In addition, the service was awful. Our waiter took 15-20 minutes before taking our order. The orders were not brought to our table until another 25 minutes passed. Our group opted for dessert and that took another 20 minutes to receive. In total, we spent between 1.5-2.0 hours dining with about 1.25 hours spent waiting for our food to be served!! The three of us all agreed that we would not be returning!!

We visited the restaurant to check it out as we have booked a large party in May there. Amazing food, great service and wonderful ambiance! Manager also helped us confirm and adjust our future reservation so that it better accommodated our needs! If you have not been - try it. We had the scallop appetizer, steak and chicken tacos for dinner - all were excellent but the scallops over vegetable hash as a starter were the highlight!

Food was good. Could use a few more entree choices. Three people at our table had the kale slaw and all agreed that was not a winner. I had the scallops appetizer with butternut squash and bacon. It was good but scallops were just a bit too grilled/too dark. Hand Held tacos looked great.

We were seated by an open window to look out onto the golf course. But by the end of dinner the sun was gone and it got chilly.

Server was prompt initially. But we asked for a few minutes to look over the menu and he disappeared. Had to hunt him down. He was pleasant enough and after that service was fine.

The main entree was delicious, the sides were awful. The grit cakes were hockey pucks. The butternut squash was good but not outstanding. Serve better sides. The drunk muscles appetizer were outstanding. We had to ask for everything water, ketchup, and remind him that we had asked for extras like extra bbq sauce with the ribs with our order. Ladies should be waited in and served first. We have been there 3 times. Its hit it miss.
