    We were promptly seated upon arrival, but the restaurant was surprisingly empty for a Saturday night. However, after waiting at our table for 20 minutes without any service, we decided to leave. It was an incredibly disappointing experience.

    The service was fine. Food was just okay. We have been to the Raleigh location several times for brunch and love the food. Thought we would give dinner a try this time. My brother in law got the meatloaf. That just needs to be taken off the menu. The steakhouse salad was good. Prime rib was fine, but the mashed potatoes were odd. Had almost a sweet taste to them. Wait staff was nice, so probably would give it another shot some time down the road.

    1. Served the wrong beer but did exchange. Stout didn’t taste like stout. 2. Meatloaf was just ok. Won’t order again. Fish and chips was good but why don’t you serve cold slaw like most restaurants and less fries. 3. Clean pollen off tables.

    Go in knowing there will be kids, possibly toddlers around and it's exactly what you'd expect in Wendell Falls. The lighting could be dimmer but it's not florescent or anything. Big bar. Plenty of TVs. The food depends on what you get. Two trips is not enough info to make recommendations. Wait staff is great but service is generally good in the area because of the under 25 crowd happy to be getting paid. And there's a generational supply of first job teens and kids in the surrounding neighborhoods. Get to Parkside and this small shopping center while it's new. Watch out for the elevated manhole rings where the surrounding streets haven't got their last coat of pavement.

    This was our 2nd time and I must say very disappointed. Ribeye steak sandwich had more onions than steak. I couldn’t even see the cheese. Portion was very small considering price. Wouldn’t have minded the price if the sandwich was edible. We love fried pickles but the pickles spears were cold and not crunchy. Would be better if sliced . Staff did not even stop to see if we enjoyed food or asked us for there was a problem when they took my plate with only one e bite out of sandwich. Not sure if we will go back.

    I was surprised at how cute this area has become! I had a reservation, but one was not really needed. I walked right in & I was sat immediately. The service was quick & staff were super friendly! The food was delicious. We had the steak salad & pub burger per the wait staff recommendation, and it was delicious! Will definitely be back

    I had heard nothing but good things about Parkside, so we thought we would give it a try, unfortunately I think the restaurant was having an off day. I made a reservation which went great. We were seated immediately. The restaurant was pretty full, but did not appear chaotic. We ordered something to drink and when the waitress returned, we ordered our food. We then proceeded to wait over 45-50 minutes for our food. We were not the only ones though. The waitress came by a couple of times saying our food was be ready soon, but at no point did she offer to refill our coffee and tea. She came by the table across from us to discuss their missing order, but she did not think to check to see if we needed refills. Our food finally came, and one of our meals was comped which was really nice. The food was fabulous though. We will definitely give them another chance for sure because we are curious about trying some of the other menu items.

    My first time trying this venue. Portions were large. We tried the brunch menu and had the sweet waffle, banana foster french toast, bacon and tater tots with mimosa. It was great and will go again to try their dinner menu. The service was good too!

    I had the shrimp and grits and my husband had the meatloaf. Nice large portions. My husband loved the meatloaf! He said the green beans were garlicky for his taste and the mashed potatoes good but maybe a little bland. I loved the shrimp and grits! We’ve been to this location several times and haven’t been disappointed yet.

    The food honestly was poor to fair . The salmon was like a thin pancake , not pink and the potatoes came out greyish in color . The presentation on the plate was awful. We couldn’t believe it even came out like it did . Living in the wendell fall’s community we were excited to have a few restaurants nearby but our experience was not a good one and we are sorry to that say we won’t be back . Not can we really recommend it to others .

    I ordered a breakfast burrito and it was served with nothing but chorizo sausage. Wife ordered a BLT with no mayo and iit came out with mayo and lots of it! We both had cheese grits that were cold and contained very little to no cheese at all. It was an overall bad experience. We had made New Year’s Eve dinner reservations but the brunch was so disappointing we canceled. I’m not sure what has happened but the quality of food has really taken a turn for the worst here.

    I was so happy to see Parkside had a place in Wendell. I love their Chicken and Waffles - it did not disappoint! My guests enjoyed their food but the house made pimento cheese was just “eh”. Good drinks. Nothing to absorb sound so the noise level was not conducive to conversation. Still, I would return.

    This is an overpriced blah restaurant. The food is not worth the price. The prime rib was under seasoned and overcooked. The steak and fries were not proportionate. Way too many fries. The steak was not evenly cooked. Fries have no seasoning. Cheese sauce was overpowering and not appropriate for the dish. Atmosphere was blah and unimpressive. The hostess was very pleasant as our server. We will not return.

    I wanted to support Wendell and try out the Parkside Restaurant at Wendell Falls. This was my first time at the Wendell Falls location, but I have visited the downtown Raleigh location several times for lunch. Both locations have terrific food, a huge bar area, and slower pace of dining. I do not feel the service is slow, the pace they serve you at is deliberately set to allow for conversation and enjoyment of the meal. I really enjoyed my dinner. The restaurant was loud when we arrived, but it’s mainly from the architecture of the building (something the restaurant does not control). Once we sat down we could converse with our guests, but we did not hear adjacent tables. Wendell has free parking and is a small town setting. Raleigh is downtown, pay for parking, and urban downtown feel. I like the downtown Raleigh location ambiance, as it feels homier and intimate. BUT I feel safer in Wendell after dark. The Wendell Falls location felt like a cafeteria with the bright lights. I believe if the lighting at Wendell Falls was turned down a bit, it could help with the ambiance. Both locations are terrific, I love the food, and the pace of the dining experience to allow for conversations. Both locations have huge TVs showing sports, but the sound is not turned up; which is nice!
