Birthday Brunch, we are always very satisfied with our visit to Robins Nest. My quiche was great & of course so was my mimosa, deserts were great. One person in our party got the stuffed French toast he said it was good, but a little overly sweet. We all did totally enjoy our visit.

I was looking forward to the tuna salad but was brought a chicken salad sandwich. It was quickly switched out but felt microwaved instead of fresh made. The waitress was terribly slow as if she wanted us to wait. We were the only ones outside and could not understand the reason for the excessively long wait to take our orders. If you are looking for a quick one and a half hour lunch. This is not the place, unfortunately. Nonetheless the food was good. The service was just terrible. The waitress made us feel as if we were bothering her by placing an order. I would hate to think we were treated this way because we’re people of color. I’ve been here a few times and this is the first time I’ve experienced such terrible and slow service.

Thank you for visiting The Robin's Nest and rewarding us with a 5 star review. We certainly have had a lot of forces applied to us causing our menu to become limited. Not our choice, of course, because our kitchen staff would rather have pages full of their creations; but, we have learned to roll with it as they say and for us that has meant continue to use the best locally sourced ingredients in some unique dishes and some family favorites but just fewer of them.

Thank you for all of those stars. Certainly delighted that we were able to provide excellent service and food; but, we never like to disappoint with the seating arrangement. Unfortunately, our under staffing situation has made it challenging to keep all of our seating areas open during all shifts. So there are times that we are unable to honor all seating requests and we apologize for that; but, we have fingers crossed that this issue is resolving.

We visited for our 20th wedding anniversary, we had dined at Robins Nest before. We have never been disappointed. This visit was exceptional! My wife had he steak which was cooked to perfection. I chose the crab/potato/corn cakes which for a crab cake enthusiast were outstanding. We were not expecting romantic and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. To top everything, Jessica, our server was amazing. Attentive, respectful, helpful and charming. Oh, and the sprout appetizer was delicious. Try it, there was no disappointment for us.

This is unique downtown/small town place set in a little make-believe Potemkin village. I knew before I went that they do an outstanding job on the food and atmosphere. I don't know what is going on in this country but the formerly thriving creekside outdoor bar was just locked up and roped off on a hot summer night.

Thank you for visiting. Delighted that you enjoyed the food. Sorry that you weren't able to enjoy the patio on your visit but when the temperatures (and humidity) reach a point where it is uncomfortable for most guests and our staff, we tend to opt for moving the whole operation inside where the air conditioning can make the dining experience more enjoyable not to mention making the work environment more palatable for our staff.

Robin's Nest Restaurant
Responded on August 15, 2021

We never want to disappoint anyone, so this is a tough post to see; but, hard as we try there are times that we miss the mark for some. I will apologize for our kitchen, not as an excuse because there is no excuse for disappointing food, but the current state of under staffing and supply chain failures have made for some creativity and ingenuity that we never thought we would would have to employ. So suffice it to say that we aren't always operating under the conditions we would like.

When our loyal customers can "show us off" to out of towners, that is the very best compliment. So thank you! And yes, dining creekside is awesome, isn't it?
