Fried Chicken Sandwich
Lettuce, Tomato, Pickles, Blue Ribbon Sauce
Small portions; not small price. Convenient and decent choices on menu.
It was okay not the best not the worst
Had no decaf for brunch, wouldn't accommodate our preferences with eggs and sided. Had to order exactly as menu stated. Not felt welcome. The food was good but we would not return
Went with a friend who has been before - apparently bar food is good there.
But Thanksgiving dinner was very disappointing,
Food was great, service was awesome.
Service was not good.Waiter did not check on us for the entire meal.Steaks were overcooked.
We sat at the bar instead of a table. Food was just what we were in the mood for. Bartender was helpful and drinks were good.
A little expensive but I liked the menu & the food was very good.
The food was superb and we loved the ambiance! The menu had so many great choices, it was difficult to decide. But the Breakfast Sandwich and the Omelets were the selections, and they were great. We started by sharing the flatbread among four of us and it was worth it!
Our food arrived in less than 5 minutes. My salmon and the sauce were cold. I should have sent it back, but I really hate to do that. Big mistake!
Very disappointing. We live right near by and always wanted to give it a try. We ordered a salad to share as an appetizer and the Amish chicken and Halibut. They brought the chicken and Halibut first and then shortly thereafter the salads which we refused to accept.
The Halibut was $38 which would be fine if it were exceptional but it was low level obviously made from frozen.
Unfortunately as convenient as the location is we won’t be back. In my estimation it is a glorified diner with inflated pricing in relation to the quality of the food.
Food is great. Drinks are always on point. However, this is the first time in SEVERAL years I've seen a dip in customer service.
Our go-to restaurant with everything from a fine filet mignon, accompanied by a nice red wine or their special version of deviled eggs or oysters, beers, cocktails. Great place for a small gathering after work. I love the Buffalo Cauliflower and really all their appetizers. The lobster and shrimp curry is a mildly spicy, creamy "gumbo" with rice and yummy veggies added. It does get a bit loud when it's busy, so we mostly like to go at less busy times, but that doesn't affect top-notch the food or service.
You won't be disappointed, and if something isn't right, let them know. They'll fix it.
Good food and service but everything is separate so meal was pretty expensive. Some sides should come with the main dish. Cold near the front windows. Had to wear a jacket
The ambiance was so fun! The area by the bar is a very fun vibe, and towards the back is a more charming, romantic vibe! The food was amazing! Definitely will be going back.
Had to request bread twice, received sliced wheat toast for dinner. Waiter forgot our drinks, and food runner forgot to tell waiter, original waiter took order and disappeared - finally got drinks as we finished dinner. Prime rib not warm. No heaters outside. What's not to like?
We sat outside. The service was fabulous -- could not possibly have been better. My friends all really enjoyed their meal, as did I, and we had some picky eaters.
Always great food and great service. Big fan of this restaurant brunch, lunch or dinner it never disappoints!
Everything here was just okay. I don't think it was worth the money. There are much better restaurants in the neighborhood.
Food quality has fallen off the cliff
Bartender w attitude while the bar is still kinda empty
Not what it was before. So sad
Good food, great service. Fried chicken a must try
decent food. wait staff was kind of rude, made us feel like we were being annoying for asking for more milk for our coffee. they initially only gave us one little thing for three people not sure what they expected
Great fried chicken
Great food and the staff service was superb
Birthday dinner. We shared large prime rib. Delicious! And hot fudge sundae for dessert complete with candle and birthday greeting. We asked for a quiet table and got a booth in the back of the restaurant. Perfect!
Food was good, but no big deal. Cavatelli was best dish. Our server wasn't really on the ball, but the rest of the staff filled in for him.
Great neighborhood spot for solid basic American food. Servers are attentive and friendly.
Loved the food and ambiance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Has a KETO section of the menu and in fact the whole menu OSS very low carb friendly. Great selection of seafood, meat and cheeses.
The food is always delicious at this neighborhood gem. Service was particularly terrific last night.
Food genuinely mediocre for price. Schnitzel was much worse than chick fil a fried chicken
The food was excellent and the service was outstanding.
Not enough gluten-free options
Fine. Good for a large group, for the price expected higher quality food but nothing was bad.
Lovely ambiance. Nice manager came to talk to us while we waited for our waiter.
Had a great time! Could be considered a little slow, but the meal was worth the wait. Would definitely go back.
AC not working in area we were seated. . Pretty hideous
I normally love the ribbon but food was inedible. Tasted old and was cold. AC was broken and service was beyond horrible. Just non existent. Such a bummer.
Food was good but the service was horrendous. The waiter knocked over the milk creamer and milk poured out on me and all over the floor. The waiter never apologized and acted like nothing happened — he stood expressionless and then left. The staff was also slow to take care of the mess and also never made an attempt to apologize. Unlikely I will return for quite sometime. Maybe they need to work out their “post-Covid” staffing kinks. Also, none of the staff wore masks. Even in Florida the staff wears masks.
I visited with my family and it was the perfect atmosphere. The food was incredible and the service was amazing. We will definitely be back!
