    Our service was excellent, my eggs were not. I ordered the Hash Brown Stack. The presentation was underwhelming and the eggs were not cooked as ordered. The Stack didn’t fill the bowl and the bacon was chewy. I keep trying the brunch items, but the come up short. Will stick to burgers and fries next time.

    Food wasn’t good. Waitress was wanting us to order as soon as we sat down. Asked us six times if we wanted water during the meal. None of us ever did. Beer was great.

    I have a seafood allergy and the cook refused to accommodate my allergy. The entre' I ordered was unedible due to the fact that it was burned. My boyfriend ordered steak and it was grossly overcooked. He chose not to order the sides that were "included" with the meal and they unknowingly charged us $12 for burnt Brussel Sprouts.

    The service, drinks and food were excellent. The noise level was so high due to “acoustic” performer we could not even talk. That alone would cause us not to return.

    The Service I couldn’t ask for better. The Steak was cooked perfectly. The only thing I didn’t like was the side dishes. Also I have to say there Bread Pudding was just like homemade. Will be back for sure.

    We really enjoyed our meal Saturday night with our friends. All 4 of us, who made the drive from Hillsboro, were very pleased with our meals… the quality, preparation, and presentation. This was not our first visit and we have come over several times, always having a great dining experience. My husband particularly loved the Hangar steak special. The server made several trips back to the kitchen to get the information for questions she couldn’t answer, and was very polite and patient. We all enjoyed the Brussel sprouts as an appetizer, as well as the large pretzel. We’re all very happy to still have the Pour House to visit, as we were sad to hear the R restaurant closed.

    Salad was good. Service was great! My Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich was subpar. It had zero spice level and the chicken tasted like the flour in which it was dredged which made me feel it wasn’t really cooked properly. I had asked for ranch on the side because most Nashville Hot chicken needs a cooking agent. If I hadn’t had it, the sandwich would have been inedible. My fries were served lukewarm. The restaurant was not busy so that wasn’t the cause. My husbands burger was fine, but his fries were also not served hot.

    We had a reservation for 12:15. Our table was ready on time. Our server was friendly and wasn’t frustrated when one of our friends was late. The service continued to be outstanding- the server promptly refilled my soda three times. My friends were day drinking, so the server also brought water without our asking. The food (French dip and fries, flatbread pizza) was delicious! None of us was able to finish the food and we all got take out containers- we didn’t want to leave any behind! The hostess was very friendly too. We will return to The Pour Hose!

    We showed up for a Christmas dinner. It was out of everything. We received bagged chips with our appetizers because they were out. They were out old a lot off food so we were limited on what we could order. It took a while for the waitress to get to the table and for our food. She was very kind but the overall flow was slow.

    Server took a. While to greet us and when he did he was on the move. Witnessed other tables around us leave unhappy. When addressed to a manager, the manager rolled her eyes after she left. The situation was handled unprofessionally and out where everyone could see. When our food came it was not very good. I ordered the fish and it had a huge piece of fryer crud attached to it. My fiancé ordered the tacos and they were soft, cold and soggy. Tasted like paper. Managers need to be more professional, servers need to be more welcoming. Kitchen need to expedite faster. The only positive was the hostess. She saw we were waiting on drinks for a while, offered to get us drinks. Clarified that she was only 16 and couldn’t order us anything alcoholic. She was super pleasant.

    Service and food were excellent! Love the new menu with drinks & wine listed. Finally some new wines! We’d love to see drink flight! The noise was LOUD the busier it got…a bit of a downer and could really affect some if noises bother them. Not sure what they can do to help with this issue.
