                                            Food was great and this establishment was able to accommodate 5 at a high table. Service was just Ok. The bartender was also the server due to nobody wanting to work these days. He did his best and we appreciate that.

                                            Received a lot of food for the money. Food tasted great. Service was fast and friendly. Server recommended the onion rings as an appetizer since they ran out of cheese curds. Would highly recommend and will go back

                                            Small menu, but very good food. Wish they had street parking for handicapped patrons--probably won't return until they do.

                                            We ordered an appetizer that came after the main entrees were served. We were quoted a price for the fish special but were charged more than the original price. They did make an adjust to the bill to reflect the price we were originally told.

                                            Solid food, but the poor staff were so overworked. We waited 20 minutes between check-ins and still felt bad. They were clearly exhausted and short-staffed.

                                            Excellent food and service! The desserts were “to die for”, especially the red velvet waffle. We will be back.

                                            Very nice and elegant dining. Tables are spaced out so you can enjoy your conversation. The noise level is quiet. There are private booths available. Huge windows overlooking the street. Fun to watch the downtown activity. Great food. Even better service! The cleanest bathrooms you've ever seen LOL!

                                            Had a wonderful evening at Poke the Bear before a concert. Our server was attentive and very nice. I had ordered the steak medium rare and it came out very very well done, the server noticed it (I would not have complained myself) and took it upon himself to let the chef know, a new steak was brought out (delicious) and I was comped & given a free desert, it was very generous and they will have my business again!

                                            The marinated onion rings were so good! We were too full to finish our meals, much less have dessert. Next time I'd order the onion rings with my sandwich and we could possibly split a dessert!

                                            The waiting staff had bad attitude due to lack of staff. Not their fault but Marriott may want to pay better attention to staffing the hotel and restaurants

                                            The food here was pretty average and very over-priced. We would not choose to eat there again. Disappointing because the location looks very cool!

                                            This was the first and probably the only time I will eat at this establishment. The host was not very friendly. Even though there were other open tables. “Mr. Crabby” sat us near the kitchen door where we could barely hear each other talk. The waitress was caring and thoughtful. Too bad the first impression of the host left a “bad taste” in my mouth.

                                            Had dinner at Poke the Bear on Saturday evening mainly for convenience, we were staying at the Northland and had been driving all day. We both had cocktails which were fine and the food was okay but not great - nice cinnamon gelato though.

                                            Food was good with some unique twists. Good beer selection and Bloody Mary was slightly spice with a nice selection of veggies.

                                            Great service. The restaurant is nicely decorated. This was our second visit here, which was specifically for restaurant week. Very tasty food. We will be back again for regular menu!

                                            Made a reservation for 9:45 pm for 2 for dinner and arrived at 9:40 pm. As soon as we sat ourselves, they said they were no longer serving food and last call for drinks. They were supposed to close at 11 pm so can’t review the food. The service was subpar at best.

                                            Our overall experience was excellent. Great food, great service & much attention was given to a clean safe environment, in spite of the Covid virus. I highly recommend Poke the Bear for either lunch or dinner.

                                            This was a first time visit for both my friend and me. We had the crawfish rangoons which, while incredibly similar to crab rangoons, do have their own unique flavor. We would have them again. My friend had the soba salad, served cold, and she said it was delicious. I had a build your own burger with the addition of fried egg and avocado. We would both happily eat both dishes again. We also shared the peanut butter cheesecake. If I had that to do over again, I would have not shared it -that was sooo good! A great wine list, lovely décor, nice looking bar - comfortable setting with courteous workstaff. We'll be back!

                                            Tried the smoked wings this time...delicious. The bleu cheese dressing is so chunky! The burgers are always good but I favor the French dip.

                                            Everything was amazing! I eat keto, and there are many options on the menu that require just a little modification to fit my diet. Service was prompt and our table was ready the second we walked in for the reservation. My water was kept full and the server checked on us numerous times to make sure everything was just as we liked it. My dirty martini was excellent and my boyfriend enjoyed the beer selection.

                                            This was our first time at Poke The Bear. Very impressed with the menu and the food!! Salmon sandwich was just awesome! Will be back for it again. It was very "bright" interior with the lighting and windows. We sat by window late afternoon, and the sun was directly in our eyes. No blinds or shades to pull down. Overall, a bit too light for a "relaxing" meal. (at least in the middle of the day). But staff was very friendly, unique menu, and food was terrific! Would highly recommend.
