American
A polished-casual restaurant & bar that combines the charm and character of a local neighborhood bar with the sophistication and quality of an upscale, chef-driven restaurant. The design of Bandit is a mix of rustic materials, vintage paraphernalia, and polished décor. It is lowbrow meets high style; glamour meets grit with warm ambient twinkle lights, combined with edgy neon bar signs creating an inviting feel to the restaurant. Nostalgic, “divey” elements are harmoniously married to elevated attributes throughout the concept in both look and feel, as well as the food and drink presentation. The menu is comprised of eclectic American comfort food with an emphasis on local and seasonal ingredients.

Made a reservation only to get there and find out it wasn't open on Monday nights. We even confirmed on Open Table.

We went for Sunday brunch and the food was very average and VERY expensive. I ordered the egg sandwich and there was literally nothing on the side. No potatoes, fruit, salad. My friend had the avacado toast. Same thing. Very bare bones for the amount of each item. Not impressed

Great spot! Our server was so fun and the outside patio was perfect for a larger group. Food delicious. And I still cannot get over the bathrooms. Obsessed.

The food was ok but a $14 cinnamon roll?!? An omelet with no side item (ex., toast, fruit, etc...)...the value just isn’t there and the service is just okay.

Dining experience was overall good, but the bottomless mimosas were not worth the price. We had about 8 glass of orange juice per 1/2 glass of champagne. Food and service were good.

This restaurant had a really fun energy. I got the mac n cheese and I thought it was pretty good. A little over-priced, but average for the area. I would definitely go back!

Waiter DROPPED. Emphasis on DROPPED drinks off and hurried off. Didn't come back until I had to ask another waiter for our waiter. Finally ordered and thankfully the food was good.

6 of us were placed on a lounge chair with a small table. Similar to a bottle service area. We weren’t asked or notified that we were going to be placed here. Due to this, we were unable to eat. The hostess was rude and so was the waitress. We ordered 6 drinks that amounted to $90 with tip.

First time here and I'll be returning!! Had reservations @1:30. Promptly seated. Due to Covid, there's a 90 minute seating limit which I was little nervous about but we were good. The server was awesome as was the food. There was a live dj which was awesome. He played some great music. There's out door dinning as well. Saturday bottomless mimosa and blood mary's....

It was a great place for brunch and loved that they could accommodate a group of 8 outdoors. Food was great and they did a nice job, even with the rain. Highly recommend the disco waffle fries, avocado toast and cinnamon rolls for brunch!

Celebrated a friend’s med school graduation and our waiter brought over a gelato for our friend as a little treat! It was such a nice touch and we really appreciated it. The chicken and waffles and Nashville hot chicken tenders were awesome!

We went for Restaurant Week brunch, which is why I found the value good. But $11 for a cinnamon roll? My meal, was great - I had the chilaquiles. My friend had chicken and waffles. Her waffles were away over cooked. We complained. It was taken off the bill. The service was rather slow. This place is intended for people who want to drink their brunch, not eat and talk.
