Great food and ambience. Visited in fall so the only thing to consider is the temperature, heaters aren't available besides all tables so can get bit cold in the evenings.
The atmosphere was amazing. The host were great with helping my group of 6 relax and enjoy a beautiful night out
We went on a night when there was a DJ and it was great! We were very impressed with how seriously the employees were taking covid safety standards as well. The food was good, drinks are a little pricey, especially when your wine comes in a plastic cup, but otherwise, it was great!
Relaxing rooftop bar and eatery. Food was great and service exceptional. Fun spot for any time of day.
Most of our group ordered the same item, 45 minutes later we are told that item is not available after we have already been there for 1hr and 30 minutes. When we finally get food the toast is so hard that you couldn't bite through it.
Great service, great view but disappointed in the quality of product that was served at Unscripted. I know that you pay more than retail for any bottle service. But Unscripted for $40 to serve a bottle of $4.99 Astoria Prosecco is unacceptable. The prosecco was so bad that we were unable to finish and that was a first ever. I am not saying a top shelf prosecco but come on there a ton of $15 bottles that taste better.
We went for a couples' dinner expecting something nice, and were very disappointed. There was a DJ and the main menu choice were burgers or fried foods. The drinks were overpriced and subpar. We were clearly not alone in our surprise as we saw an older couple enter dressed for a nice dinner and promptly order their food to-go after being seated for 10 minutes. This place needs to be marketed as it is, that being not for a nice meal out of the house.
Had a wonderful time at special event put on by Unscripted. The food was yummy and original, the service attentive and the entertainment beyone compare. Love the special adult beverages, boozy pops and adult "juice pouches." Very fun afternoon sitting in the cabana! Thank you, Unscripted!
Waitresses and manager were friendly, professional, and accommodating. Ambience. Nice View. Nice Weather. Variety of seating options.
food was great-- service was decent. I was surprised food was served in plastic to-go containers but it was really good!
Did not feel safe given Covid. People drunk, yelling and dancing. Party scene. Service slow. Food mediocre and too pricey for what it was. I’d try again after the pandemic.
Great location! Service was a little slow, even though the place wasn't full, but still fun spot to eat outside
If the DJ is playing Reggae - you can't find a more relaxing weekend escape spot!
My guest and I experience was phenomenal! It was a great sunny day! Music was appropriate. Manager was working extra hard to make sure everything ran very smoothly! I did not request an umbrella table but the manager female host made air our request was met! What a great time we had!
We love the Patio and the people at the Unscripted Durham. Plenty of love, fun, great service, and an amazing atmosphere!
We have spent a very good night at the Patio: the food was delicious and we recommend the Patio Burger and theCrispy Crisp Chicken Sandwich- the service is friendly yet dynamic and highly professional. All in the good vibes brought by DJ Special K.
Small, clean, pleasant staff, good but pricey cocktails. Beer and wine obviously less costly. I did enjoy my Frose very much. Little shade so plan accordingly. Good DJ. View of Durham. Go with a couple of friends as chairs and tables are separated by 6 feet. Enjoy!
It’s marketed as a pool patio lounge-ish type place with a small, select menu and live music. The decor and ambiance were cool - a retro type feel. But otherwise it felt more like a Myrtle Beach pool bar. All the food was served in plastic to-go type containers. Plastic utensils were thrown on the table. And we didn’t even get plates to share some the appetizers we ordered. I realize it’s a pool area so there are limits on what can be used for serving - but some decent acrylic plates and cups would have been nice. Especially when you’re paying $14-$17 (ish) per menu item. The food was basic (nothing exciting) and pretty small portions. The drinks were good, but tiny. Literally served in mini plastic cups that were maybe about the same size as 2 or 3 shots might be. Add ice and you’re down $15 bucks in three swigs. The service was good - and I know my table was especially high maintenance - but after we got our food, they seemed to forget we were there (or maybe they wished we would just leave already lol). Net net - I wouldn’t return unless I was laying by the pool in my suit. I definitely wouldn’t celebrate any special occasion there. We came for a birthday...and it was lackluster.
It was a huge let down! My wife and I were looking forward to trying this place out, as they have a roof top and brunch. However our experience was at best subpar! The only thing going for this place is the drinks. The brunch food was not worth the money. The huevos rancheros was a joke! It was suppose to be 3 eggs and I got two. The toast for the mashup was burnt. Definitely will not be back!
Birthday for my sister! Fun time, the employees weren’t super upbeat but it’s Covid so I know things are different. They were pleasant & helpful. Nice atmosphere. :).
Always great food & service.
First time out since restaurants closed due to pandemic! It was a wonderful experience with safety measures in place! The food and service was fantastic! I’ll definitely be back! With my bathing suit!
The view from The Patio of the Durham skyline is beautiful. The food was delicious, service was fast and friendly, and the drinks were great! A great place to meet up with friends and have a nice time.
Wonderful dinner on the roof with delicious Frose, a beautiful sunset, friendly service and a fabulous dj!
Really fun spot! Great hidden location, really enjoyed it. Hard to find fun places like this in Durham
I'm sorry, I did not think the brunch menu was great, and the food was just so-so. The service,however, was OUTSTANDING. Cute little quirky place. Would give it another chance, just not for brunch.
The staff was great...the general manager was 5 ⭐️....the place has a retro feel...!
I love their vegan burger! Their drinks are always delicious and I really like coming when they have a dj.
We had a great time at Unscripted! Food was excellent and the pool party with the DJ was a blast.
Great food, music and atmosphere! Will definitely return!
A little bit pricey for what we got out of it, but a fun place to meet friends. Unfortunately, there is very little to protect you from the heat (not much shade, didn't see fans). Brunch might be better than dinner.
Great people, great atmosphere, great food and drinks and especially GREAT service!!! It is our official staycation!
It was a great evening! Staff was attentive and food was yummy!
100% recommend this place. I'll definitely be back.
It was so great to be back on the patio! Everything felt very clean and safe and as always we love the staff and service. The food and the drinks were both very good as well.
Great food, great people watching, drinks a little pricey but its a rooftop pool and I would higky suggest going here.
Food o.k., although choices limited. Variable service. And a way overloud DJ playing music to an almost empty venue...as other have noted, they really should turn it down until later at night when folks are looking for a party atmosphere. Not at 7:30 on a nice evening under the stars.
Check if their DJ by the pool is playing music... if so, way too loud for dinner.... we left so we could go somewhere to hear ourselves..
