Best omelette and wedge salad I’ve ever had. We love family brunch here every week our schedule allows. The staff is so kind to our kids and takes good care of us every week!

We wanted to like this restaurant, but the food just wasn’t good. My seafood entree was not fresh. Management did not charge for my meal, which I hadn’t requested and appreciated, but I don’t plan to go back. Beautiful outside seating area.

My husband and I love eating at the Sacred Beast. My only complaint would be that the last two times we were there we were miserably cold. And I had a jacket with me both times.

Told we couldn't have booths in an empty restaurant and had to sit at a small table. The restaurant was still empty when we left and not one of those booths had been filled. Cheese curds were cold and not melted at all on the lobster fries.

We were not impressed with Sacred Beast. The atmosphere is casual, almost sterile. We did not order a lot of food so maybe other choices would have been better options. Our waiter told us they are known for burgers so we ordered a burger. The roll overwhelmed the small burger which didn’t have a lot of taste. We ordered the lobster fries which was a mistake. The fries come in what is called lobster sauce which tasted nothing like lobster and made the fries into a soggy mess. Cheese curds in the dish added nothing and didn’t taste good. Both dishes were not hot when served. Despite the overwhelming positive reviews, I would not give this restaurant another chance.

Never disappoints! Service is always friendly and efficient. The food is always delicious and interesting. The watermelon salad has such a great surprise with the addition of wasabi peas! Fresh, flavorful and just a beautiful summer dish. The gnocchi is always on point, light and fresh with the nice texture and flavor of the peas and mushrooms.

Eggs and goetta excellent as well as the omelette (best I’ve had in a long time)
The toast however had the taste of something rancid. I suggest you check whatever it is you put on it or maybe it’s the griddle. Big negative

I will return to this place again and again and again. They always do something interesting and, if you think, "Oh, I eat this all the time; so..." get their version of whatever you're thinking about. Trust me, it will be better. I think almost the entire crew has been there since day 1 which tells you something about the atmosphere.

We wanted to venture out for brunch and we could sit outside. Our waitperson kept apologizing and telling us he was “new”. When we asked questions when he didn’t know the answer he just asked another person.
We got the deviled eggs without the bacon on them. They were spicier / better last time we came. But, my husband was still happy to eat them.
My side salad was huge. I got it with the Blackened mahi Ruben which was also huge!! The mahi was cooked perfectly! My husband got the Dirty French to eat only it seems I missed the photo.
To drink we tried the Euro tonic and the Tito’s smash. He was so hungry - even though the burger wasn’t exactly the way he wanted he still ate it completely!
We will go back. We had good service the first time we were there. I do suggest changing up the menu.

Well not as great as the first time. No Steak on the menu that was so good first time and Steak Tartare doesn't count. The Lobster fries we had the first time where hot and so was the curds. This time we asked that they come out before the burger so we can enjoy them first. They came out same time as the burger and everything about them was cold. The server acted like a deer in headlights every time we asked her something about the menu. No personality at all and when we asked what was the the Au Poivre sauce was she said it was made in house - oh that cleared it up. Disappointed - won't be back.
