    I went to this restaurant tonight, just three people and I. Four people total. The first thing that went wrong was I waited a hour for a table in a empty restaurant. I let that go because the food here is really good and the service is really good. Yet, the worst thing I imagine, happened. Our food was undercooked, the outside look really good but in the inside it was raw. I told the server this happened. Lauren, our server, tried her best to help us out and even the food runner tried to help. The manager walked up to us and said you happy now. I don't know what he meant by this. Then I asked, and he told me I should leave that my type of people shouldn't be in here. I took offense to this. Yes I'm gay, yes I was wearing a crop top, but I do not need a manager coming up to me telling me this. Also he was checking me out all night and I could tell he was because he was at the bar for a minute just looking me up and down. I asked my server his name and she said it's Mike, I believe that is correct. I hope the lgbt community will help me boycott this restaurant until is "Mike" is removed.

    The Saddle up Lemonade was a great cocktail! Not too bad and I enjoyed it. It was a Sunday afternoon so it was very quiet (tvs were on mute) and dark! The staff was very friendly and only complaint as a first timer I would have appreciated more suggestions of what was good. I ordered the brisket plate and it came chopped with coleslaw and tomato/cucumber salad. The server wasn't sure about the preparation of some of the sides (i.e. how collard green prepared or if potato salad was mustard). We also had the Margherita pizza and it was good.

    There were too few staff to cover the number of people. We waited over 1.5 hours for our entrees to come out. Once they did they were cold to the touch I felt bad for our waitress because she was trying her best, but they just didn’t have the staff to cover the number of people there. I think the food probably would have been good if it was hot. The only thing that came out hot was the pizza and it was good. Might give it another shot when it’s not a “DJ” night. That was the other issue, DJ was not good. He basically just turned the bass up on any song. Feels like this place could be good but just had an off night.

    Really enjoy going to tannery row ale house everything is better than average but not amazing which is why I’m giving 4 stars The only complaint was it took a while to get waited on refills etc but I think it’s due to the labor shortage. Our waiter seemed to be trying hard. It’s also nice to make a reservation and have a table. The music isn’t crazy loud like it can be at other places and even when sold out it’s still feels spacious

    I left a review on yelp. Menu of food needs work. Chips and queso way over priced the tiny cup of cheese was not near enough for the amount of chips. The pimentos brisket sandwich was a big mess. Chunks of “ brisket” was too much and tough. The meat wasn’t possible to eat in a bite. Too large and tough. I’m not sure I saw the pimento cheese, looked like mush. I would recommend going there for the bands.

    We like the casual atmosphere and the great music we have enjoyed there. The food is basic fare, much better than we expected, but slow to arrive at the table. It is a BIG place and crowded on weekends. We will absolutely return whenever there is a band that we think we will enjoy.

    8:15pm reservations, dinner brought out at 10pm, fries cold, green beans straight out the can and the meat definitely smoked, but not seasoned, I mean literally no salt! Before COVID this was a great place to go. Now, NOT. The band was good though. Too loud, but good.

    Awesome bands come to play here and that makes it worth the trip.!!! The price of the food is fair considering the ambience and the entertainment.. The food I ordered which was pot roast with mashed potatoes was stone cold when they delivered it which is totally unacceptable. I had asked to substitute a vegetable medley instead of the asparagus. Some of the carrots and broccoli were so hard, as if they had just been cut and thrown in instead of cooking them first. I normally get the stadium tenders or pizza and believe me that’s what I will get next time! The waitress was as attentive as she could be considering the large amount of people.

    Loved this often live band venue. Most bands that play sound very well. The dance floor is very ample and has plenty of room for lots of folks to dance. The tables right next to the dance floor make it very convenient. We will be back! Can’t wait for next time. 👍🏼

    Food is usually great, last night it was pretty bad, everything was cold when it came out, the pork was all fatty and really not worth eating. However this is unusual for them, maybe just a bad night, we will go back.

    Reserved a table for 6. Got there and was told tables not available. Looked up on computer and said they see I had a reservation. It was made a few weeks prior to event. Go stand at bar. No chairs there to sit in. He said go stand anywhere. We don't have any tables anywhere. There won't be any cause they're all taken. We go there often but this was 1st time there was barley standing room anywhere. Only 1 bartender at bar! She was going so fast. She was great but to even keep up was impossible! They would have made a ton of money if they had a few more bartenders. We left.

    Brian has been hosting beer pairings and putting a lot of effort into some physical changes/additions/improvements to Tannery Row. We're regulars and rarely miss a beer pairing where Dawn and Noah work tirelessly to serve a large group of beer tasting patrons. Great place to grab a beer/drink for lunch/after work/date night etc. Big screens for sports and family friendly nights and more.

    To have made reservations and the table they had for us was a slanted table by the drink station? We asked to be moved. Server walked past us three times before we got up to ask if we could be served. Food was not good. Cold. Had to get steak remade. Appetizer was good though. Won't come back or recommend

    Great live music, but food and service are hit or miss. Went to a huge fundraiser in Feb 22 and had horrendous service, and the food was even worse. We had the Nachos as an appetizer (barely any meat or cheese and they were so cold it was as they came out of the refrigerator). Got a large hot pretzel (they are normally amazing here), but it was so dark and hard that you couldn't eat it. We simply picked what little of the insides that were ok to eat. Lastly, we got the bacon with bourbon peanut butter sauce that usually comes with bacon strips in a mason jar. This time, it was crumbled charred bacon remnants (maybe totaling one piece) in a tiny bowl. The server took the drink order and did not come back for literally an hour. It was almost the worst experience we have had there. Everyone in our area was complaining and talking about how they wouldn't come back on their own (they were there supportibg a non profit). We will still go, just maybe won't order food anymore. We have had some good experiences too.

    This visit was with people from California. We sat at a high top in the bar area. There were 2 people at the bar and 1 other table with 2 people at it who were eating already. After being seated, we waited fifteen minutes before I went to the bartender, who had been giving samples of beers and chatting with the couple at the bar, to give her our drink and appetizer order. The look I received … the drinks took a while.. The entire place at the time we came in was not very busy. We have been here when the place is slammed and had better service. Mind you, it is not enough to keep us away. Your food is great. Just offering feedback.

    The food was pretty good, but overpriced for what we got. Their beer list is completely inaccurate. There were 4 different beers that were on their beer list that they no longer had. We got there when there was only 1 other table filled, so the service was great. Then the place started filling up and the level of service decreased. It was difficult to get the waitresses attention and then she forgot to get the beer I asked for. Overall, this is an average place with pretty good food and service, but a tad overpriced for bar food.

    We waited about 1.5 hours for our food bc the server or cooks lost our order. We were starving!!! Thankfully, when the food finally arrived, it was tasty. Manager gave us a free drink to compensate so that showers good customer service on his or her part.

    Atmosphere was very nice and inviting. Very spacious and open restaurant. Service was horrible. We waited for 20 minutes to get our drink order placed and then another 15-20 minutes to order food. It was not busy enough to have that long of waits. The restaurant was out of several different drafts and menu items even though it was listed on their updated online menu. Overall very disappointed in the service and restaurant after hearing great things about it. I will not be recommending it to anyone else.
