    The restaurant was open allowing lots of places to sit. Open doors are a nice way to let in fresh air. The food was ok and the staff while nice wasn't very good. The waitress missed many pieces of our order while small still irritating. The weirdest part is the silver plate/trays - way too small for the meals! Nothing here will prevent us from going back as these are things that can be readily fixed!

    Friday nite: Fun vibe, excellent service. Food very good., delicious drinks. Looked like everyone around us was having a good time. Manager came right over to take our picture. Even the staff looked like they were having fun. Dates, families with young children, families with teens, some older folks and some in the middle, and some young at bar. Fire pits very inviting. Would go again

    The food here is really good, the drinks are also. The place looks amazing as a bar/restaurant, clean. Food also comes out very fast, almost too fast. My problem, which we deal with every repeat visit is the horrible noise level. If a band is playing, even a very good band, like the one last night, it will sound terrible. Often new establishments have this issue for their first year or two, this has been an issue here since opening. Management doesn’t care. Don’t go here if you want to talk with your dinner dates, you will be yelling. Really stinks too since this is coming from a musician. Nothing makes me happier than live music when it sounds good.

    The restaurant was packed, live music, great vibe which is why this is our go to for Friday nights! Food is always delicious, but sad that they took the firecracker shrimp off the menu and replaced it with coconut shrimp. The live music adds so much to the atmosphere and should go to 10pm instead of ending at 9. We always start with the classic bar pie, the wedge salad is a favorite along with their Rueben and chicken quesadillas. Give The Mainland a try, I think you’ll love it, as my family does.🍽️
