    Menu is limited but food we got was good. It was a busy night so our order got mixed up and appetizer came after we finished our main meal so we refused it. Manager did apologize. Not sure we will hurry back but we did enjoy our meal.

    The food was average. The menu was fairly small. No problem with the service. It was fine for a quick bite. We were attending a show at the theater so it was convenient for us.

    It's a very quaint restaurant. We got there at 5 and it was quiet and we had a great booth. It does get crowded later in the evening. Our waitress was great and very attentive. The food was delicious and well cooked. We will be going back again.

    Food was delicious and service was perfect. The only complaint is that at 7pm they were completely out of chicken so there were zero chicken dishes available. Poor planning on the restaurant.

    Their menu had hardly anything to offer besides sandwiches and overpriced steak. Their online menu did NOT match what was on their actual menu and prices were overboard. Ended up only doing drinks and an appetizer and going elsewhere for dinner.

    Amy, our waitress was great! Not a huge fan of having a meal amongst a bunch of seniors playing bingo. I obviously missed that fact when I made my reservation. That was my fault. The nachos were quite good and there was a decent beer selection.

    The atmosphere of this place is quite nice. They need work on the taste of food and could use some training in the service area. While the chicken wings were phenomenal, the rest of the Food we ordered was very bland. Burgers had no taste. Chips tasted like they were out of a bag. The nachos, particular their sauce, left such an aftertaste. Pricing was wrong for drinks and after several attempts, they couldn’t get the checks right for each sitting couple. We’ve heard good things about T Lawson’s, so we tried but likely won’t go back. We will stick with Patti’s across the street.

    We were seated immediately. Waitress was very snippy when we asked about the “O’Bryan” from the menu online. She said we don’t have that & where did you see it? Show it to me! When we did, she said, That’s Google, not us. Well, it was on their website. And Gumbo, $34 special! No, that’s ridiculous. We ordered the brisket nachos which were fine unless you were actually expecting some brisket…. Doubt we will be back.

    Food and drinks were amazing! Reasonable time for food to table, drinks are really slow. Staff was nice and everything tasted amazing. The serving sizes were huge. If you want to save some money, order one thing and split or some of the appetizers can be your entreé.

    The best things that I can say are that the host was amazing and so helpful and the pretzel was really good. Those are the only two things that really earned anything over a star. The food only has one side and is way overpriced. I had the Ricotta Chicken and my husband had the Chicken Marsala, both $25. I can honestly say that mine was the worst chicken dish that I’ve ever had. The sauce was broken, asparagus tough and big, and the dish had absolutely no flavor. Our friends had burgers that were so dry they just crumbled. Service was just average, nothing extra. Will definitely not be going back. If you can’t get into Patti’s just go eat elsewhere.

    It was good as a whole. Smoked brisket was fantastic and husband’s steak was cooked as ordered. The cook on the fingerling potatoes was inconsistent and lacked seasoning. Brussel Sprouts had good flavor but were undercooked for our liking.
