Wonderful casual. Service was very good. Server recommended both drinks choices and appetizer. Entrees came a little fast after telling server we weren’t in a hurry but won’t hold it against her. Whole night was fun.

They ran out of food that was on the menu. Drinks were expensive and odd tasting.
Salasa was extremely hot. This place was very average

I must say the staff is sooo nice here. I was celebrating a 50th birthday and due to covid no place was accommodating a large group (16 people). I wish the waitress had help with such a large crowd we needed 2 servers. Two or 3 people had food issues but overall it was really good. I don't think there would have been any issues with a smaller crowd. Overall the party turned out great!

Food was horrible. Some of it was flash fried having the center cold. Burger had no seasoning, not even salt or pepper. Food was just bad all around. Good service but didn’t go there for the service

Great band and bar ambience. But it seemed that they were under staffed for the event going on, so Service was very slow. The entrees were good, but the appetizers were just ok.

We made a reservations for 6pm and arrives around 5:50pm. The hostess seem scattered despite it not being that busy. The two of us were seated at a table for 6 (this becomes important later). Our waitress would disappear for periods longer than seemed reasonable -- again the restaurant was not that busy. Restaurant was dark and loud making it difficult to read our menus and talk quietly. About 15 minutes after finishing our meal (7:04pm on my watch), the hostess came up to tell us she had a reservation that needed the table and if we wanted to stay she would have to move us. I told her we were waiting for our bill and hadn't seen our waitress in a long time. I'm completely annoyed by this as I do not think an hour and 14 minutes is a long time to sit and eat an appetizer, dinner and drink 2 beers. When I got home I received an email from OpenTable that we had not honored our reservation. I think the hostess was clueless, forgot to log our reservation, then put us at a table that was too big for two, then got stuck with her decision an hour later and tried to correct it by "kicking us out".

Hostess/manager was a sweetheart. We loved the cocktail menu. We also enjoyed the fish tacos and fish n’chips. The dry rub on the tenders was good but the chicken was just okay. Cute, hip place. Will definitely be back.

I have been to Ryfe quite a few times and it never fails to exceed my expectations. They are constantly adding specials as well as seasonal drinks. I had a French Kiss which is champagne with Chambord. It sounds so simple but they made it spectacular! The food is also so good and never disappoints. I had a Classic Cheeseburger with truffle fries and I wish I ordered 1 to go. Also, although they are clearly following all Covid protocols, the atmosphere there on Saturday was still vibrant, which is impressive. We had such a good time and stayed so long we ate both lunch and dinner! This is always a go-to spot when I am in AC and I highly recommend going.

We found this place last minute and annoyed at how it was practically impossible to find ANYWHERE to eat. Was willing to go anywhere since we are here on our anniversary vacation. They had a time open and we came and I must say, it had been our best dining experience yet. Gracious service, phenomenal food and just great ambiance. Would absolutely recommend!

We had a reservation for eight and we were seated right away, It took about 10 minutes for the waitress to come over and take our drink order. Another 15 minutes went by we didn’t have drinks and my husband tried to wave her down and then the manager came over to wait on us. We were contemplating leaving but figured at that point it was 830 and where we going to go..
We asked him where our drinks were and told him we were ready to order food and he looked at his watch and said I’ll get your drinks but I’m off the clock. We saw them go over and talk to the waitress and then he wound up coming back with the drinks and said he would take our food orders. It took about 40 minutes worth of food to come out and my husband’s food was cold and mine was mediocre warm.My husband sent his food back and he apologized saying they were short staffed.
The place is really nice inside the food actually was good but the service was definitely lacking.
