I love everything about this restaurant except the noise level. No matter when I have gone, the tables are pretty close but wide and I always have issues hearing the person I am dining with.
Service was excellent.

It PAINS me to give this rating - I was so excited to finally eat here. So - my friends said their meals were AMAZING however, I was stoked to have the plant-based meatloaf which ended up not being on the menu so I had the Veggie Sauté instead. It had a base of quinoa - which was cold, like refrigerator cold when it arrived and was topped with sautéed vegetables that had almost not flavor at all. The dessert was amazing - pecan pie. But I can’t look past the bland and half cold meal that was over $23. I’ll likely try again but my first impression ... not so good.

The service was impeccable but the food was subpar. The fried shrimp & grits were overall good but only 3 shrimp. The sausage & peppers were the most flavorful. With my family being from the south, I would never order their chopped bar b q again. My pink Cosmo drink was good.

Booked on an evening that the town was having fireworks. Since this was a Victorian home, the dining area was like eating in someone's dining room. Very comfortable with good food and service.

We just love the food, decor and staff at Robin's Nest. It is also one of the few restaurants that offer real gluten free options (not just salad-bread, wraps) and I don't get sick....

The food was delicious, the server was pleasant and efficient. However, it was disturbing to have psychic on hand to give readings. I even got a call earlier in the day asking if we wanted to schedule a reading. I almost canceled my reservation because psychics are charlatans at best or a gateway into the occult. I hope you don't continue this practice or we'll have to find another restaurant for our special occasions.

We were a party of 4; all of us had different things & every dish was outstanding. Shout out for the Brussel sprouts. Wow! Service was so slow. We were never asked if we wanted another cocktail (which took an inordinate amount of time in the first place) waiting for about 45 mins more fo our entrees with no one checking in on us. Charming interior, an outstanding array of homemade cakes. So if u go enjoy your meal but set low expectations for the service.

Not what I remembered. The goat cheese salad used to be medallions but it was a huge hunk of goat cheese. The plate it was served on was too small and it was difficult to eat. The mahi tacos were just OK. Orange frommage cake is really my reason for coming. Would consider just dessert.

Had a wonderful lunch celebrating our anniversary. It was a beautiful day to enjoy our lunch on the patio. My husband ordered a pulled pork sandwich with delicious mashed potatoes. I had the turkey sandwich on a gluten free bun. I have Celiac Disease and mentioned to our server that I needed the kitchen to be as careful as they could of cross contamination. I was so pleased that I did not get sick. We love this place and I am glad that we gave the restaurant another chance.

Robin's Nest is my go to restaurant when I want to have a visit with a friend. The food is yummy, the service is perfect and if you are there in mid afternoon, there is no rushing you out. Its a charming restaurant and eat lighter (I didn't yesterday) because the desserts are to die for!

When we arrived we were surprised to learn that there was seating outside along a small stream in the rear of the building. The ambiance was amazing on a sunny 70 degree day and perfect for a business meeting. I had the Mahi Mahi tacos for lunch which were great! You can park on the street nearby or in the parking lot across the street.

First the positives: They have a beautiful, two-level outdoor patio with lots of seating that we really enjoy in the warmer months. And it is one of the only area restaurants where we can bring our dog along, as they allow well-behaved dogs on the patio. So we will likely keep returning for these reasons, even though this last visit was a bit disappointing. The food is good, maybe just a little bit pricey for what is offered - entrees in the mid-20s. But there are some cheaper options on the bar menu, and I do not mind paying a bit extra for the entrees given the special atmosphere. Everything from the regular menu is always quite tasty. Their desserts are really delicious, too. And they also have a kids menu, which is helpful when we have our son with us. My complaints are: 1) The pizza from the kids menu seemed like it came from the freezer section of the local grocery store. I don't mind paying a bit extra for the special atmosphere and in light of the fact that this is a mom and pop restaurant, not some big chain, but feel the pizza really should have been either cheaper or better quality. 2) The service was slow and inattentive. It took almost an hour for our food to arrive, including our son's obviously-pre-made pizza. And no one bothered to give us an update, or even check on us to see if we needed anything while we waited. We had to flag the waiter down 45 minutes into our wait to see if our food would be coming soon. And he did not bother to apologize for the long wait when we inquired - just said our order was next up in the kitchen. We were also missing a place setting for our son, which, though we brought that to our waiter's attention, never arrived. We ended up using the napkin from the bread basket as our son's napkin, and not bothering to ask again for cutlery, since he was eating pizza anyway. 3) I ordered a classic mojito, and it was not a mojito at all -- no sugar and no rum! Made with gin maybe? Sent it back.
