It was pouring rain and we had to sit outside and their credit card machine broke so we were delayed for our next appointment and had to rush to ATM, etc. and I think they should have comped something for that experience but they didn’t...but we still had a good time and we loved our waitress Emily!

Wonderful place! I celebrated my birthday there and it was such a smooth experience. Love the service and the food was delicious. No bad dish on the table. Love that they can split checks! Win-win

It was the worst brunch experience ever. Service was bad from arrival to when we left. The coffee and drinks took very long to bring out. Our server forgot one of drinks, brought coffee with spoiled milk. Our server was a rude and not helpful.

Went here for date night to enjoy the patio and the atmosphere is just adorable. Sat around the massive fire pits and had dinner and drinks. The buddha bowl is fantastic and I would highly recommend it ! Our server Emily was just the sweetest and very attentive.

I’ve been to Park and Field several times and love to go for their weekend brunch. I went there with a sizeable group (14). The staff was wonderful and welcoming from the start. I had made my reservation through the OpenTable app and after making the reservation, needed to add two people. Park and Field was more than welcome to accommodate us. The buffet is a great touch with lots of wonderful food to please every palate. Additionally, they are always ready to give you a refill or help you out in any other way. I was particularly impressed this time around as a major storm blew through the area (black skies, winds, downpours, etc). The team was a well oiled machine in evacuating the patio and getting people situated inside the bar itself. You can always count me in for a get together at Park and Field!

Honestly you just come here for the large outdoor patio and bottomless drinks at brunch. The food is not good so don't expect much there. I would compare the food to maybe a brunch at a best western or other generic chain hotel.

Upon entering it was cute, nice large outdoor patio and inside seating. Staff were friendly and open to assisting us with watching a sporting game. However bar service was extremely slow, 10min to get 2 draft beers on a slow, Sunday evening? I think our food came faster than the beer. We ordered sandwiches. They were ok but nothing I’d need to come back for again. Menu didn’t include beer prices which is a pet peeve of mine and they take your payment right at the table so not much time to review your bill. Overall it was just ok.

Not good. The drinks are sub par. The food was just ok except for the homemade omelettes. The mimosas were warm and not sure what kind of OJ in them but not good. The buffet line is poorly organized and takes waaaay too long to get through it. Won’t be back.

Outside the tables are to tight together for comfortable mobility. The waiter we had was flighty and would look us in the eye which was off putting. There were a lot of kids there which wasn’t something we were expecting for Friday night at 7:30. Not that it’s the restaurants fault but the kids were running all over getting in everyone’s personal space. Pair that with the small spaces between tables and seats it was incredibly annoying.

The food was alright.

If you’re going for drinks later in the evening I can imagine it’s great.

I enjoyed Park and Field. The atmosphere is cute and cozy. My burger was great . I believe the staff did a good job of accommodating a party of 15 turned 18, yet I was a bit taken off when the server asked for a credit card from every person to put on file. I've been to countless "large" dinners/outings in my life and that has NEVER been requested. I then gave her my card only as I did not want to inconvenience my guests and the server proceeded to inform me I'd be liable for anyone that may skip out on their bill. I don't think its best practice for the staff to automatically assume someone won't pay for their items, especially at a large seated table....its not like we were casually standing around the bar. I advised her I had trustworthy friends and wasn't concerned about potential chargers against me.

Great dinner & s'mores, our waitress was really busy but had great service. Took an extremely long time to get a drink at the bar after dinner. I get that it's a busy place and bartenders are making drinks for tables too, but don't need to make guests feel like they're doing something wrong by ordering a drink at the bar or when reminding you about the beer you forgot to bring us after we order....

The atmosphere and space was awesome. The set up in there is really cute, we also eventually moved outside to their patio area and sat around the fire pit they have outside. The space outside was very welcoming and inviting. Service was great, the employees were so great to deal with, from the host, to the server, bus boys, and cooks. The only one comment, is that their pop was a bit flat but that's if I had to critique anything. The value for the brunch is more than reasonable. Great place to hang with friends.

I was very disappointed with my Park and Field experience. I chose it as the place to get our friend group together to watch the Final Four. I made the reservation a week in advance and called the day of to confirm they had our table seated by TVs. When we showed up they placed us in the tented area split up between two picnic tables. There was one tiny TV in this area with no sound. Eventually, the manager moved us inside to a pop-up table with folding chairs. The waitress was rude and purposely ignored our table. Several people in the group complained to the manager. The also kept propping the front door open and there was a chilly draft the entire dinner. I will not be returning to Park and Field.

The space is amazing, from a really awesome interior to the amazing outdoor patio. The food was good, but nothing remarkable (the "Nashville Hot" sandwich wasn't hot at all). The best part of our visit was the amazing service. Our server was truly outstanding.

We had a great time at brunch. Food was delicious. Service was not as good as I expected. She told us the price for brunch and came back maybe once. We needed water refills, coffee, and new utensils because the bus boys kept taking them without replacing them. When we got ready to pay, we were expecting a check we waited and waited until we went up to the front. We had to wait another 10 min.

If you’re planning a lazy, boozy day this restaurant is the way to go. The servers are great and offer refills frequently. However, the food is mediocre at best. It’s pretty clear that they’re counting on the brunch crowd NOT being there to eat. Brunch is buffet only and everything is cold and/or soggy. It’s just an obvious second thought. atmosphere is very cool.

My group of friends went to Park and Field on a Saturday morning for brunch to start off a bachelorette party weekend. First, the food is amazing! Not just basic breakfast food, but great and fancier food! Do yourself a favor and do the bottomless brunch. Normally, when you do bottomless brunches at other restaurants, it takes forever to get 2nd ,3rd, etc drink. Here, they are constantly refilling drinks! The waitress told us they get in trouble if people have empty drinks. We got our reserved area for 2 hours and then they asked us to move outside since they had another reservation. I thought the service would stop once we move outside... NOPE! They still came every 5 mins to see if we needed a refill on our drinks and they brought us s'mores for the fire pits outside. We had an awesome time and I cannot wait to go back!

I have been to P&F before so this was not my first time.
Went here for my moms bday and we enjoyed ourselves. The menu is diverse enough to cater to the non-traditional taste but also the traditional american taste buds.

We all had drinks but mine was enduring a keg change so they comped the first one since it was mostly foam, solid customer service on that one. We all had beers and I think everyone enjoyed their choice.
For food we all started with taquitos, had to get all toppings on the side since the rents can be difficult with toppings but they were exceptional. Also had the pretzel (can't go wrong).

Our mains were all very tasty and we all enjoyed them. I had the Bahn mi pork sandy which was fire but a tad too salty for me but still enjoyed every bite. Portions were large so ended up taking some home to eat later and it reheated well. Overall, I will be back I am sure and I hope the parents enjoyed the spot, next time hopefully it is warmer out and we can catch a patio spot.
