                                                              Very average experience. Should have know by the number of open tables on a Saturday night that this place has gone down hill. After being bounced around by two waitresses who couldn’t decide who was going to wait on us, ordered four cocktails and had to send two of them back after waiting 15 min to get them. Word to the wise - don’t order the smoked Old Fashioned. I told our waitress that it tasted like an ash tray she said “we get that a lot”. Came to find out that they use pipe tobacco for their smoke. Who does that?? Overall it was just OK and expensive for what we received . Atmosphere was just Ok this time around too. There are much better alternatives for lower cost. Likely won’t go back again - just not enough upside.

Drinks took over 30 minutes to be delivered after ordering at the table and we had to have the hostess to finally pick them up from the bar for us. Waitress was unfriendly, not knowledgeable and never around. $46 steak was stringy and tough and roasted veggies were bland. Salmon and drinks were good. Won't return.

The ambiance is excellent and my baked half chicken was absolutely delicious. My wife had the pork chop which I tried a couple bites of and it was surprisingly chewy which at this price I wouldn’t have expected. Beyond that, the only issue was that it took a very long time for our food to arrive and being a quality restaurant I would’ve expected someone to check in and update us. I’m also surprised I didn’t see a manager working the floor keeping their pulse on everything, checking food quality, etc. But we’ll be back. I’d recommend it!

The taste was good but I had to chew and chew and chew. I could of cooked a $9.99 steak at home that would be much better. Plus we made reservations; you ask, is there a special event? We put yes, a birthday. We were never even asked about a birthday. So, why do you ask?

They also close early just FYI. The place was maybe just a quarter full when we had dinner. They service was just okay. You can probably get about the same kind of food or service in Cheesecake factory or Texas Roadhouse. The mushroom side dish though was really good!

The appetizers came out later than the main entrees but the manager was nice enough to comp us even if we were not asking. Pleasant experience overall with great food - you gotta try the Sugarbacon appetizer!

The shrimp and grits were decent the Brussel sprouts were really good and the ribeye tacos were just ok very dry! It’s wasn’t to busy but they were alittle messy! But everyone was nice so that helped.

                                                              Our server forgot a drink we ordered then never brought our appetizer. My meal was wrong and had to be sent back. The server disappeared several times and we had to ask other servers for water, the check, etc. then when the check was brought to us our server asked if we wanted the appetizer that we never received taken off the check. We said yes we didn’t want to pay for it since we never got it. Then it was more waiting for the check to be fixed. Disappointing.

                                                              1st time at Sugarbacon. Was busy for an early Sat nite as we arrived at 545 to have a quieter dinner. Difficult to hear in conversation due to being so busy. Hush puppies were very good as an app. The only major glitch was the entrees were running about 40-45 minutes and our waiter had disappeared and wasn’t keeping us abreast of the long food time-that would have made a huge difference just knowing that the staff was aware of the long food wait. My baked chicken was over done and very small portion for $22. The other entrees Ribeye and a Kale salad were good. A little pricey for what we received but will probably go back for their brunch menu in the future.
