    The food was disappointing at best. The medium steak was well done. My sandwich had no flavor, and our son-in-law, who is in no way picky, could not eat his. The two sandwiches came out before the steaks, so two of us were waiting to eat. The people in the booth behind us were talking very loud, and it was distracting. In general, not a good experience for the price. We won’t go back.

    Terrible bland food, cheese curds were 50% soggy breading, no seasoning, burger was half the size of the bun- again, no flavor at all, I wouldn’t even touch the fries- they were soggy and literally wet with oil. The old fashioned tasted off as did a Diet Coke. I was pretty sure I had Covid because everything tasted weird until we stopped at another bar and all the food had flavor and tasted as expected. The poor hostess ended up being our server, we never even saw one. She did so well, considering my it’s not part of her job.

    Looking for a quiet place for a light dinner, instead we got dueling music/TV noise, very limited menu and a premium price! Service was top notch.

    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

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!
