The waiter in the bar was excellent as well as our drinks. The hostess is efficient and charming. The waitress was being trained and did not check back with us enough but the waiter tried as it was as busy as usual. The food is always excellent. We’ll be back!

Republic really does it right. Fantastic food, drinks and even more fantastic service. We had a group of 10 that included four children and our server managed the table perfectly focusing on the children and their food early so the adults could catch up after 18 months. The server even brought ice cream coupons from the next door ice cream shop for the kids as well--nice touch.

Only two choices of wine for HH which the one I ordered was not good. Otherwise wine was $15-20/glass - too expensive.

Food is always good but seems your usually out of the wine I pick to drink, then I get stuck with another one, good but priced more than my first request. I feel I shouldn’t have to pay more for something I settled for in the first place. Just food for thought.

Every other time I have been to Republic I’ve been pleased, but last night was not a good experience. I was surprised we didn’t get physical menus- the wear and tear on the bar codes made getting an electronic menu take an awkward amount of time. Then it took a really long time for the waiter to ask for our order- about 25 minutes. And it wasn’t too busy at 9 pm at night, though it was a Saturday. And they seem to have not fully adapted to opening up their policies after COVID. Once we did get our salads we realized we needed seasoning (and also on the fried chicken), however there was no salt or pepper on the table. The flavors were just surprisingly bland- everything seemed to be off- food and service. The times between seeing the server didn’t improve during the meal. I still gave a good tip because I appreciate having servers at all after the difficulty running a restaurant can be in the environment we have seen.

I hope to return one more time to see if it is better! I sure appreciate having a restaurant in the area.

We really enjoy Republic - eat there on a regular basis. The one thing that would get that extra star is a couple of vegan options; e.g., grilled cauliflower steak/portobello mushrooms, a grilled veg side and a salad or two that were fully vegan would not require a lot of extra prep, expensive perishable ingredients, or frig storage space. I am an omnivore - love the steak frites and the pan-seared chicken breast - but have some vegan friends who have difficulty dining out.

The reasons we keep coming back to Republic are the consistent good food, good price to value and excellent service. Expanding the menu to add a few vegan options would only improve things and bring us back even more often.

We went for our anniversary! We enjoyed it. The Fender Bender is a great drink. The burger with fried egg was my husband favorite. I have the pan seared chicken and I loved the mashed potatoes and green beans. We will be back soon.

Had the house salad and the bourbon glazed meatballs. Both were very delicious. Service was okay. Waitress did not know the menu well and struggled with helping me pick a beer. But I give them some leeway knowing they were probably short-staffed, it was a busy Sat night and the waitress may have been brand new. But the staff is always friendly.

The place is very lively. Can carry on a conversation, but if you're looking for a quiet meal this is not the place. Overall this place is a hidden gem that I always enjoy.

Enjoyed mothers day brunch food was great. The only problem was a bird flew in and birched itself high on one of the windows and would not stop chirping. Made for an interesting Mothers Day Brunch.

I know the restaurant tried to get the bird out of the restaurant but it just flew high up and they could not get it down. I hope they finally got that poor bird outside!

We decided to try this place out since Kenny's was booked up. Overall, the food was very good, the service was also very good...but not super attentive. Very lively atmosphere and everyone was having a good time. Can't say anything bad about this establishment and I would definitely return...

We normally have a very nice experience at Republic. I think the staff was overwhelmed with a crowd in the bar for the Kentucky Derby. Drinks and food took significantly longer than normal and we had to wait another 10 min for silverware after the food was brought to the table. Drinks were brought after food instead of before. It was just really slow. Hopefully just an off night.

It was Derby Day at Republic so we invited about 30 friends and combined the event with a retirement party. It was super fun and all of our guests had a wonderful time. Thanks!
