    We went to BKC for a birthday dinner. We arrived for an 8:00 reservation and were seated right on time. The restaurant was lively with plenty of diners still there. The food and the service were both top notch. Our server was very personable and attentive even though we were sure she was quite busy. We ordered 2 passable dishes for 3 adults and it was plenty of food for a main entree. This is not our first time at Story Hill BKC. We have come for appetizers and happy hour. We will definitely return.

    This was my second time getting dinner at Storyhill. The service is always absolutely impeccable, extremely friendly staff, and absolutely delicious food for a reasonable price given how fresh everything tastes. Storyhill will always be a go-to date night spot as long as I am in the area.

    I am so sorry and disappointed to hear this. We truly pride our selves on service and rarely get this type of review. If i could ask who served you that night and what was wrong with the experience. We take all feed back as a coaching opportunity. Also if we could get a address to send a gift card to give us an opportunity to give you a better experience.

    We got in right on time for the reservation. As soon as met our server we let him know we had a show after dinner and needed to leave at a certain time. After that he was quick with our food and it was absolutely delicious. This is typically a great place to chat and take food as it comes out gradually, but it was great for an amazing meal before our show.
