Everything was great and our server was wonderful, too. I gave a 4 for service because we had to wait longer than I thought we should for drinks and food. The restaurant was really busy so we did understand that.

The food was delicious. The waitress did not come around to check on our drinks and my husband's drink was empty for awhile. Food took awhile to come, but our experience was fine. We will be back.

We had a very large group , almost 30 people and they were very accommodating and service was smooth. We had highchairs, wheelchairs, table moving and the staff was not rattled by our crazy group. They were helpful and so nice.
we were celebrating my Mom's 100th birthday and they made that part of our birthday weekend fun

Our server was extremely attentive and accommodating. We asked what the soup of the day was and if she liked it. She brought us a small sample so that we could decide if we wanted to order the item, which two people in our party did. The food was delicious and came out in a timely manner. We will be back!

Casey was an excellent server. We had a large group and she managed the area so well. It was impressive how quickly our food came out and that everything was right.

We arrived at 6:45 to a packed restaurant. I was prepared to wait despite having a reservation, but I was pleasantly surprised. We were seated at the last open table in the place.

My husband enjoyed his IPA, and our dinners were delicious. I especially recommend their burgers. The service was perfect. Our waitress knew that we had been driving all day and was nice enough to let us know when she brought the check that they now had plenty of open tables so we should not feel the need to rush out. We appreciated that tip as it did feel good to linger a while longer.

One of our regular eating places. As always, excellent food and service. Family friendly. It gets a little noisy at times, but not too loud to hear conversation.

I’ve gone to the bucket many times and food quality and prep are on the decline. Last meal was fish and chips the fish was greasy the slaw was old the fries portion was very small. It will be awhile before I return sad to say.

Food was good, as always. Normally service is great but they were either understaffed that day or unusually disorganized. Server was nice. Had to ask for refills. Came in w/a party of 8 & my dinner was forgotten. Had to wait an additional 10 min. to receive my meal. Also had to ask several times for check & waited approx. 30 min after finishing meal to receive them. Ordered cheesecake to go but those were put up in bar area instead of being given to us, which made us wait an additional 20 or so min. The food is good, we like the location but service needs more attention or more staff.

Great restaurant! Friendly staff! My cousin had lots of questions about what she was ordering and our waiter took the time with us and talked to the chef. We never once felt rushed or like it was a burden. The manager came over at the end and we informed her that we really enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere was nice too. I'm from Cleveland and she informed me that there is a restaurant near me. I will definitely be going there and I hope the experience will be just as good if not better!

The music was too loud for conversation without leaning over table. Server was super! If music had been at reasonable level, I'd have given all 5 stars.

We arrived at 6:15 with a reservation and were seated right away. That was the end of a good experience. The food was delivered very late to our table - probably 25 minutes - and Six of us received cold, old food. My food was Fries & fish and they were barely warm and dry - others experienced same - even one person’s soup.

The room was not crowded - but did have a big party of 10 or so ...

We will not return to this location
