    Food was really good! Chef has a great menu. I hope more people find this place and they can have a good fresh turnover.

    I'm very appreciative of the staff. We had reservations for 12 and ended up with 14... the staff was extremely accommodating. The food was very good, but the staff were what really shined. I would definitely eat at Next Level again.

    It was a very poor experience. Probably because it was a game weekend. They seemed overwhelmed with the full house. Service was extremely slow and the pork chops we ordered poked good but could not hardly be cut with a knife. Very disappointing, but it wasn’t terribly expensive.

    Very enjoyable meal. Hearty, like home cooking, but with elevated flavors. We also liked our mint julep, which didn't skimp on the bourbon. And the server went the extra mile by contacting us right away when we forgot our card.

    Very slow service. It took over an hour to get our food and two tables around us got up and left because they did not get their food (one left after 1 1/2 hours). They have some kinks to work out.

    If you bring in cash to pay, eat that instead. It would taste better and you wouldn’t have to wait an hour and a half for it.

    We took our Dad to eat here for Father’s Day! The host was doing an amazing job in a very busy time. I would highly recommend the Maple Cornbread, Traditional Breakfast, and the Cheesecake French Toast. The Mimosas Flight is very good and interesting. I loved the Pineapple flavored Mimosa. Our waitress was outstanding! The restaurant is not very big so I recommend reservations. Overall I give this restaurant a 10/10!
