The place is great but they didn't have the table reservation setup. We had to wait around 20 mins for a table. Kind of defeats the purpose of a reservation...

We had a group of 10 and they have a separate table in the back that is more private. It was a perfect location. Our server was okay. She did not seem to know how to deal with a large party in terms of taking drink orders as the people came in. Food came out without much issue, except that it was not to temperature for some items. The event was for my fiancé and me to ask our friends to be a part of our wedding party. So it was a special day for us.

Service was excellent, but the food portions were skimpy for the high price. I’ve been to fancier restaurants and paid the same price for excellent and unique dishes.

Food was very good, but service not so much. Had to look for her for a simple refill on the Iced Tea we had. Couldn't find her for the bill and it wouldn't hurt if she tried to smile and maybe say thank you.

I always enjoy their extensive beer and ale collections. Definitely a step up from typical pub fair, I've had their full entrees before and it was always prepared well. A great burger also--olive oil, parsley and garlic fries are to die for. Service is always very pleasant and our server this go 'round was very attentive and nice on a busy "bears game" night.

Service and food was good but neither the hostess, management or the server acknowledged our Godson's birthday (which I had noted in our reservation). That was a bummer as a lot of restaurants do acknowledge a special occasion.

We've enjoyed this place in the past, but this time not at all. We had a Sunday lunch there with friends we don't see often and wanted to "catch up" - forget about hearing conversation at your table when they have sports on the TV's. The volume was way too high as is the music they play when the TV goes to commercial break.

I asked for the volume to be turned down and the server asked the manager, who did take it down a bit, but it still interfered with normal conversation. We ended up shouting to be heard 3 feet across our table.

The food was very average and came out cool - a real no-no. I personally had the Lamb Pastrami sandwich that looked great on the menu but when it came it was very well done and very dry. When I asked the server if they all come out so well done she shrugged. I asked if it could be cooked medium rare and she said "probably" - never asked if I wanted to return it for a medium rare sandwich or change my order. Our drinks went dry a few times and where refilled when we finally put them on the edge of the table so she could "catch on".

I rarely give poor reviews but this time I had to warn others to expect a loud atmosphere, food that the chef should never have let out of the kitchen and sub-par attention from staff.

Our server seemed uninterested and did not know the menu. We brought bottles of wine for our own table service and she broke the cork in the bottle and handed it to my husband so he could fix it. Not impressed. Definitely more of a bar, not midscale at all.
