If I could sum it up in one word it would be inconsistent. The pork chop was probably the best I have ever had with the apple cider brine. It was tender and fantastic and then served with broccolini that wasn’t even warm. We also ordered the steak (medium rare) came out well done. 😑 sent it back and the second one was cooked properly, but both were crossing the line of too much salt, and I like a nicely seasoned steak. Overall 50% of each dish was 4 or 5 stars but the other 50% was 1 or 2 stars. We will try one more time as I think they have potential, but if they are still this inconsistent next time I wouldn’t go back. Service was nothing to write home about, but it wasn’t bad. Pork chop and spaghetti squash were the highlights.

We loved this place! The food was great. I had starter and side veggies; my husband had the noodle salad with pulled chicken. Service was outstanding - quick, very polite, and efficient. Great value! Fun vibe.

This was our second visit to The Collins. It was fantastic! We arrived in time for Happy Hour drinks and enjoyed the chips and French onion dip.
My husband had the rotisserie chicken and I had the Scottish salmon. Both dishes were delicious. We shared a piece of pecan pie for dessert.
I would highly recommend this restaurant.
There are many vegetarian options too.
Staff were very attentive and friendly.
A great evening of dining.

Overall a very nice place. The staff was friendly and helpful but our waiter was a little too busy. I asked for extra dressing and he forgot, so I had to ask another waiter who happily got it for me. The menu prices were decent and doable. The food was good although in our opinion lacked basic spices. We will try this place again, maybe with friends next time.

We went for brumch on a Saturday around 12:30 and seated immediately. My Bloody Mary had a bit too much horseradish, but otherwise was tasty. The Croque Madame was so delicious and HUGE. I think I ate about a third of it. My husband had the Eggs in Purgatory and he was delighted that he had tried something new. He did not lick the plate, but probably wanted to do so. Service was great and our waitress helped describe the dishes so we could make the best choices. Can't wait to go back.

The veggie burger is delicious, but the popular onion soup is about the saltiest we've ever tasted and was a disappointment. Don't sit outside, as the patio has insufficient heating for a cold night and no cooling for a warm one, plus the street noise is pervasive. We loved Twisted Grove (in this location before) but are "meh" on Collins

First time to this restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised. We sat inside because the outdoor seating was disapppinting. Food was tasty and well prepared. I like a restaurant that offers small plates and there were many to choose from. We will be back.

Love what they did with the place! Service was great, the Chips and Sweet Onion Dip was excellent,
was disappointed with the Group Sandwich, over cooked and very dry, the Short Rib was also overcooked and disappointing. No one checked on us after we received our entrees. Maybe they didn't want the feed back, didn't ask why we didn't finish.

I would consider giving them another try.

The service and food was a little slow, however the manager was amazing and took the time to come over and apologize, which our group really appreciated. I would give this place another try for sure. The food was very good.

Food — delicious, except pizza crust is really floppy.

Nice ambiance except for the south-facing seating where the glare from the windows is blinding.

We’ll be back, and ask for different seating.

My husband and I had been for the first time on Thursday, January 12th and were so excited to find great food, service, and a terrific looking place. On Thursday I had asked Brittany to reserve a high top in the bar for us for Saturday. She pleasantly agreed, but indicated that normally they don’t reserve bar seating, but she would try her best. Saturday we returned to celebrate our niece’s birthday. Our requested table was available and the food was just as good and the service just as stellar. Katie the Manager was gracious, Anthony on Thursday was our server and our server on Saturday (I am so sorry to forget her name) we’re both pleasant, engaging, and efficient. The food.....Saturday we had Steak and Pomme Frites, Grouper, and Steak and Eggs for Saturday. The presentation, quality, flavor were perfect. Collins coleslaw very good. The sauces accompanying the fries and steak; wow! Definitely a keeper for lunch, dinner, or brunch. Oh, did I mention the delicious Tres Leche Cake for a complimentary Birthday gift was best ever. Thank you Management and Staff. Well Done!
