    We waited just about two hours to be served. Our food was forgotten and they needed to remake everything. And then it seemed like they forgot us again. Because our food was not hot when we were finally served. They forgot a soup and we had to ask for it a second time. They weirdly split our bill, charging a portion of all items to all three of us in our party. The manager apologized and removed our app from our bill. But waiting two hours for food, especially when the temperatures were dropping and we were stuck outside waiting and getting colder was insufficient. We’d have been fine if we had received our food in the usual time. They were going to give us three discount coupons but none of us are from here. Sadly disappointing. We should have asked for some better recompense but we were freezing and just wanted to leave. We won’t be back.

    We enjoyed our dinner, tried everything on the menu for restaurant week and added our favorite bean dip, we like the black raspberry better for the dip but still found the red to be excellent. Hope you keep the cottage pie around, or at least do an occasional special with it. A little dark haired girl who was pregnant was our server and she was just the sweetest. Id give you 10 stars if I could! Thanks for a nice evening out, it made a cold dreary evening so much better!

    There were 5 of us eating that night. Everything from a New York strip to margarita flatbread. The flatbread tasted "ok" but the crust was too thick. The salmon was good, the steak was "ok" , the spicy chicken sandwich tasted ok but wasn't spicy at all. We had Mac&Cheese bites (ok), fried pickles (a little bland) and deviled eggs (very good). The cocktails were decent and the beer list is nice. The server was very good.

    The Pour House is very convenient for us, but also full of great food! They have a large beer selection, but I love the Bloody Mary's. There is trivia on Wednesdays and lots of live music on the weekends.

    The food was great and so was our server- it just took a really long time to get our food! We sat down at 7:30 and didn’t leave until after 9:30. We weren’t in any rush so it was fine but for others, that could be an issue!

    We enjoyed another amazing date night at The Pour House. It was our second visit in 2 weeks. Everything we ordered was delicious (Prime Rib French Dip, Gastro Wings, and the Mac & Cheese with Blackened Shrimp). The service was impeccable. Live music was great but not so loud that we couldn't enjoy our dinner conversation. And we loved sitting in the round booth so we were able to be a bit more "cuddled up". We will definitely be back!

    We loved our experience at The Pour House at Machinery Hall. Small town, where the locals go…and the service was great! Hostesses and servers were both very accommodating. The vegetarian options were delicious (avocado quinoa bowl, cold) and others in our party bragged on the Italian herb and honey chicken. Fun atmosphere, great for date nights. And if there’s a wait, no worries…plenty of shops around the corner on Paint Street to peruse. You can even stop in and paint at Nellie Dog Pottery!

    I took my daughter for homecoming. Food was good, but we were disappointed. We chose to make our reservations here because the online menu stated bison burgers. That’s all she had asked for. We got there and they no longer serve them. If I was going to buy a regular hamburger, I definitely would not have paid $19 for it, but since we had limited time we did.

    We were greeted warmly by the hostess, and our waiter was very pleasant and attentive. The service was good and fast, and the food was tasty. As we were leaving, an employee who did not wait on us gave us a friendly farewell; I thought that was pretty cool. Thank you for a nice evening.

    We have been here several times. The food is AMAZING!! The service is consistently slow. Our reservation was at 7:30. We were seated at 7:30. Ordered drinks at 7:35. Got our drink order at 8:00pm after asking where they were. Food arrived at 8:30pm. There was live music that night starting at 8:15. Great music! The cover charge was told to us when we ordered our drinks. We didn’t have an issue with a cover charge but it wasn’t upfront transparency and we had made our reservation the day before. The manager did comp our cover charge after we suggested to have that be knowledge up front. We will still visit again because we know that the food is excellent. Just know that you will be waiting a significant amount of time for your order even when it isn’t a busy time.

    Made reservations hoping to have dinner before a show. Order was placed and it took 40 minutes to get our food. Waiter stopped at our table once during that time to refill drinks and tell us the kitchen was backed up that our food would be out in about 5 minutes. Finally 20 minutes later our food arrived. We had to grab a few bites and take the rest home then it was not as good as if we could have had a nice dinner there. Unfortunately this is the second time this has happened to me. 😏
