    We enjoyed a great birthday meal with friends. Our server was great - she made awesome recommendations and brought frosty drinks very quickly! Food was really great and the menu has quite a variety of options.

    My husband & I both noticed how that even when our waitress was busy with another table, the hostess took it upon herself to bring my husband a refill on his unsweet tea without an prompts or request from either of us. We love the initiative taken by everyone working to make sure our special dinner was special.

    The ribeye was a bit grisly. The salmon was such a small portion, and no substitutions were allowed. I would have liked something other than rice. We were seated in the bar without being asked if that was okay. Service was excellent. Not putting this restaurant on the “must return” list. Overall it was just “okay.”

    Beer as always was great. Hamburgers not so much. Asked for medium rare, burgers were overcooked. No cheese on the Blue Burger. Fries were warm, not hot. Friend had the pork chop and said it was very good.

    The Taxman is usually a good experience for us, but this time not so much. Our server was very slow and left us and others around us waiting longer than we should’ve. Considering the restaurant wasn’t that busy for a New Year’s Eve dinner. My wife ordered her meal and fries was the side. Well my wife and the other couple with us his wife was also Gluten allergic. Well the burger with the gluten free bun was fine but their fries are not and she asked for another side instead along with the other friend of ours did too. Well we got our meal and they charged us an upgrade charge on one of their sides. This was not right and asked the server about it and he said that is their policy. I asked to see the manager and he went back to the back came back a couple of minutes later and said he was sorry but the manager was too busy to come out. It will be a long time before we come back after this.

    We had quite a wait to be greeted by our waitress but after that, she was excellent. Friendly, attentive, and helpful with recommendations. And fixed all the kitchen’s mistakes with a smile. Service was rough from the kitchen though - almost everything we ordered came out wrong, despite our waitress reading everything back and (I assume) entering it properly. My appetizer salad came out with no dressing. Both my and my partners’ sauces selected were ignored and a different one was delivered. The sauce requested on the side instead of on the burger unfortunately came on the burger. The wrong beer came in the beer flight. To top it off, we both agreed the burgers were dry, not worth the money and not something we’d order again. I will say though, my blueberry gin cocktail was fantastic.

    Our bill was over $100.00 for 2 drinks each ( four in total) 2 sides ( spouts and max and cheese ) and sausage max and cheese. They charged me $4.00 extra to put Bourbon in my Old Fashion. Kinda thought that was included when you order a drink.

    The kitchen needs a salt shaker & a grill chef that doesn’t blacken the pork chops. Martini’s are served in a small glass that’s far from full. The great atmosphere & pleasant staff doesn’t make up for the bland, scorched food & overpriced drinks in my opinion.
    Taxman FortvilleResponded on October 16, 2023
    Our coupe glass (martini glass) is 8.5 ounces. Most of our house cocktails are 5 to 6 ounces of liquid, so the glass shouldn't be full. If you ordered an actual martini, this is only about 3.5 ounces of liquid, so the glass should be far from full. We would have been happy to address the issues noted with your food had you addressed it with our team during your visit.

    So disappointed! Eight of us at 1:45pm. One person wanted a tenderloin. Nope! I got a salad with salmon. I specifically asked for blackened. Came out grilled & waiter just shrugged it off. I wasnt going to wait 30 more minutes to have it recooked. It was not an entire piece of salmon, it was these two small pieces, just looked strange. Hardly any dressing & I had to ask for requested more. He brought me a container with about a teaspoon. I told him that was not nearly enough, could I have more. Again, got about a teaspoon full. We all got a laugh out of the tiny bit of dressing. You'd think it was gold! We all ordered wine with our meals & dessert. One lady ordered 2 scoops of gelato & got 1. I ordered chocolate "gelato". Was basically ice cream & my bowl had a big chocolate fingerprint on the edge of the bowl! Yuk! Got my bill & it was about $38. Got charged $2 for the 2 dabs of dressing. This was the 3rd time the eight of us had met at Taxman for a meal & will be the last. We all decided we wouldn't be back, too many other great restaurants in the area. And finally . . . I got very very sick later that evening!!!! The salmon???? Remember I said it just looked strange even though it was cooked well. Dirty hands in the kitchen?? Who knows, but we won't be back & neither will most of our friends we all know.

    The Wi-Fi was down so according to our waitress the special requests couldn’t come with our dinners. The chef wouldn’t see what she had listed. When I say special request, I mean, asking for ranch instead of honey mustard for my grandsons chicken nuggets. The food was just OK. Not the same as my experience a few months ago. My brisket was over cooked, and the plate was very unattractive when it was served. We waited an extraordinarily long amount of time to be served our first drinks and our food. I will not be back.

    Our food didn’t come out at the same time, the food was cold when it did come out. The steaks were all in pieces (normally ribeyes are in one cut) and the quality of the food seemed sub par. We asked the hostess for certain sauces or to check on the accuracy of the order and it took her a long time to get back to us. My husband was visibly unimpressed with his meal. a manager should’ve come out and check on him and offered a discount, new steak etc. a $38 meal shouldn’t have been subpar or cold.

Overall, we had a wonderful dinner with great food. I highly recommend Taxman for an evening out with your significant other or a group of friends.

    Food was good. Had devour Indy special. Chicken and waffles needs more syrup and less greens. The chicken was more spicy than it has been in the past and it was too much. It was a lot of food. The pretzel and beer cheese was very good
