    I would give it zero stars if possible. After ordering our food we waited 1 hour and still no food. Asked for the manager who refused to come out of the kitchen. Tables around us got up and left without their order arriving. The manager finally came out and said our ticket was next. After an additional Al 15 minutes still no food. Finally 3/4 of the meals arrived at the table only to be served raw and undercooked. The order with a food allergy was not delivered by the manager as regulated. Needless to say we got up and left, never to return again.

    Great experience. Service was outstanding....Hostess, server through to kitchen staff who delivered our meals. Food was exceptionally fresh and delicious. Varied and interesting menu, great drinks, beautiful environment. An exceptional option for upscale casual dining. Substantial outdoor seating as well.

    My wife ordered the roasted chicken. It came with lemon slices on it. She is allergic. She brought it up immediately to the waitress. She hot a bit of a lecture because she said it says lemon on the menu. We checked, it did not. The chef made her grilled chicken breast. The server was told of a tomatoe allergy also. Tomatoes came on her second plate along with broccoli. She ordered asparagus.Not to mention our drink glasses were empty most of the meal. Restaurant was not full. No exuse

    Not even worth my time to explain the unnecessary wait, horrific service, thousand apologies, poor quality food, incorrect orders, and terrible mothers day experience. Don't waste your time or money here.

    Waiter was super nice, but seemed overwhelmed. Our app came out with our entree, luckily, I work in the hospitality industry and totally understand what working on a Friday feels like, so we cut him some slack and enjoyed our meals! I will say, it was def not the best impossible burger I had, I feel like a lot more thought and time could go into planning the menu, preparing the dish, and presentation of the dish. Would I go back again? Maybe? Definitely won’t be my first choice, but it is for sure a great place for families, grabbing a beer and apps to watch the game, or meeting up with friends for a quick bite to eat. Wide variety of food, and a big menu which is great and rare these days!.

    The calamari was super crispy (which I love) and it was served with a lemon aioli (so good) and was a welcome change from the typical marinara sauce. Million $ burger was very good as was the jalapeño burger (both cooked exactly as requested) with additional side sauces as requested. Service was great.

    Kitchen staff made two major errors on our food order. Fried fish was mushy. Alcoholic drinks and desserts were unexpectedly expensive. They accommodated us at a quiet table for 6 for a birthday celebration so that was nice.

    We came here for my mother’s birthday brunch on New Year’s Day and she absolutely loved it and did not want to leave. We started off with the mozzarella sticks which were homemade and perfectly crispy. I had the chicken and waffles and the portion was perfect. It was a small waffle and 3 boneless tenders so not overwhelming at all! My mother who is very fussy thought our waitress did an excellent job as well. I guess we will be back! Definitely a step up from the old tavern in the square that used to be here.

    1st time going, and we sat at the bar. The restaurant was 1/3 full (for a Friday night) and the bar was half full (huge bar). The food was OK, service was awful. We sat for 10 minutes at the bar before even being acknowledged. And after a hello from the bartender, they didn't ask us for our order. Finally ordered drinks, and then wait another 15 minutes before we ASKED if we could put in a food order (they never asked if we wanted anything). They had plenty of bartenders (3 behind the bar with a bar back). I'm not sure if they were new or just inexperienced but it was painfully slow... And we love sitting at the bar because we have always found service and interaction to be so fun. Not here. Not sure we'll be going back anytime soon.
