The food was pretty good but think it wasn’t their best night. Some items were very good and some we had. The steaks were excellent, the sides with them were bad. Over-cooked mushy Brussels Sprouts and soggy veggies.
Our server was terrible. There was no friendly greeting nor any effort to make us feel welcome. She waited forever to take our order, she cleared the table and brought us to go boxes then came back 5 minutes later to see if we wanted the dessert menu or our check. We had children with us and she didn’t understand how important timing is. But also she was terse, so it makes her errors harder to forgive and ruined a special night.

It is a very beautiful dining room, I like the ambiance very much. It feels special inside of the Brass Onion.

We made an online reservation and were seated at a table immediately upon arrival. Our server took our drink orders quickly and we placed our orders. She told us that it would be about 25 minutes before we would receive our dinners, so we ordered salads to offset some of the wait time. We did not get our salads until we asked our server where the salads were (probably 15 minutes later). We got the salads only about 5-7 minutes before our dinners arrived. We also ordered take-home dessert and had to wait another 10-15 minutes to get it. The restaurant was busy but not so busy that we should have had to wait so long for service of our food. The food itself was very good so we will return to the Brass Onion again. We have been to the restaurant several times so hopefully this was just a one-time occurrence.

I ordered the short rib Reuben. It was dry and the meat was beyond shredded. It tasted like they had scraped the bottom of a pre-made pan. My friend stated her burnt ends were very good. I was also disappointed they did not have the Charles & Charles Chardonnay I wanted to try. Service was good. Ambience great.

This was our first time at The Brass Onion and we were not disappointed. The cuisine was southern inspired with huge portions and full or flavor. The onion dip was amazing and infused with garlic and herbs. The jambalaya and French dip sandwich were fantastic! My side salad was small with very little dressing (it was supposed to have been tossed in dressing ahead of time), so that is my only disappointment. I did like the roasted, seasoned chickpeas in it, though.

We have recommended this place to our son for a great place to take his girlfriend on a special night. I hope we will be back again sometime!

We love The Brass Onion, and were surprised to be able to get a late-notice reservation on a Friday night. Fantastic menu (the fried chicken is amazing) and drinks. Our server, Stephanie, was wonderful. We like to support local restaurants, and this one is superb. Bonus: Prairie Fire is a gorgeous development, made for strolling after dinner to window shop and view all the flowers and native grasses.

Brass Onion is a nice place to go to when you feel like eating out at a nice place but don’t wanna wear a tux or go broke either. They also have a variety of dishes when you’re not quite sure what you’re in the mood for either. I recommend the red sangria as well. Actually, order a couple of these strictly for comparative purposes!

Brunch is delicious. Beignets, breakfast flatbread, avocado toast all winners. Fried brie salad was 1/4 lettuce cores and brown. I had a nice pile on the table. Server was attentive most of the time, but she never questioned my lettuce pile. A bit pricey, but some of the items are worth it. Breakfast flatbread needs salt and pepper in the gravy. We will go again just for the beignets

Prime rib special was ordered rare, but came out more medium well done.
Fried chicken was excellent. I like my green beans southern style mushy, and the green beans were al dente. I should have asked about that when I ordered.
Still an excellent meal in a nice venue.

Our past experiences at Brass Onion had been good, but our last was anything but good. We were seated for 10 minutes before anyone waited on our table. One waiter took our drink order. Another waiter arrived a few minutes later to take our drink order not knowing the first waiter had already done so. They both showed up with water at the same time. While delivering our cocktails they dropped a plate of French Fries with ketchup which sprayed all over the four of us and spilled a third of my cocktail. They were apologetic, but there was a complete lack of concern from the wait staff or any offer of "what can we do to make it better". You would think that after spraying us with ketchup the effort put into our dining experience would be elevated. Food was excellent, but I refuse to pay for shoddy food service at the prices they charge. It become almost like watching a comedy act unfold before us. Our dining experienced lasted 2 hours. Not because we were having a slow paced multi course meal, but because we had to wait for long periods of time for anyone to show up and check our table. I can't recommend Brass Onion to anyone based on our last experience. For the record. I don't do reviews.

The Gumbo leaves you craving it again! Steer clear of the overpriced crab cakes and consider that my husband and I each had two cocktails and questioned if there was any alcohol in them.
