    This place is the WORST!!! Took our reservation with multiple reminders with confirmation … showed up after a family event with a party of 8 only to find the door locked and a note saying CLOSED for Christmas party! Dont take reservations if you can’t provide service !!! We were all looking forward to our first visit there … never again … will spread the word in community on your poorly ran business!!

    We enjoy this family friendly restaurant. The pizzas are great. Burgers and Mac n cheese are a family favorite. Best part is the table games and little arcade. We can relax while the kids play Vibe is fun and chill. Not a hurry spot. Take your time and relax

    We made reservations for Mother’s Fay a week in advance and only had 2 people. We never got to eat. We waited 50 minutes for our food and if never came. We ordered donuts for our appetizer and they never came. We paid for our drinks and left. We loved the vibe but if we can’t eat, kind of useless. Very disappointed. It’s a super cute but they need to fix the service and kitchen.

    Sunday Brunch-Under staffed and poorly managed. Server was great but overwhelmed with amount of tables to take care of.

    The restaurant space is amazing and great for friends or family getting together. The waitress and the bartender were also fantastic and service tip top. But I was not impressed with the food, the manager did take care of us and comp’d our meal but I won’t visit again.

    Service was so slow, we ended up asking for our order to-go after 30 minutes of waiting for entrees. There were only 5-6 other tables in the restaurant and we only ordered salads.

    Food was fine - heavily dressed salads but the burgers and Brussels sprouts were good! Service was unfortunately really slow. We had three little kids who were hungry and tired and cranky, and we kept getting told “we’re really busy.” Might go back on a weeknight because it has a fun casual vibe for groups and kids.

    The food was terrible, two of us ordered a Cobb Bowl, no avocado, no apple, very little of anything but some kind of lettuce that had been mixed so long with the dressing it was all wilted. When we complained we were told the manager would be over and then someone from the kitchen brought a little apple and avocado and then said, oh are there two salads, but never brought more. Never did see a manager. There was a $1.00 charge to POUR the bourbon, really who charges to pour bourbon in a glass. We ordered two Buffalo Trace and they only had enough for one drink. I have no idea how this place stays in business. Make sure you check your bill if you even go to this place

    The price of the amount of food you get is not proportionate. The chai Espresso Martini was delicious, but in too small of a martini glass for the price. I think we were there on a day when they may have been down a server or two. Server seems to be stretched a little thin and food came out at different times. Drink orders took longer than expected. Overall the ambience is what sparked our interest to come, but there could be improvements. The openness of the restaurant was fantastic. Wish the ice cream place attached was open after our lunch. Love that it's very family-friendly! Dog-friendly as well!

    First of all, this was a no research, panic reservation. Showed up 20 mins before the reservation, was seated right away. This place was not busy, maybe 25% full. Seemed liked a Valentine’s Day destination for families with small kids. The server seemed nice, got a water and iced tea relatively fast. After twenty mins of staring at a small menu and not seeing our server again, I put $5 on the table for the tea and we moved to a a near by restaurant. No intention of returning.

    We were told one of the cooks called out sick so that probably had a lot to do with our experience; however, the food was just okay and definitely didn't warrant the prices. It took forever to get our food (and we ordered donuts as an appetizer and even that took at least 30 minutes). The servers were very nice and apologetic about the situation but I can't say I'd recommend it to anyone.

    If we could give it less than one star I would. Our waitress was friendly, but left us sitting with no attention, no silverware and several times we had to remind them that we were still waiting on something. Our appetizer, drinks, silverware, (twice). I say “them” because sometimes a random person would drop missing items off. Food was okay, but not great. Salad was all oil, no vinegar or spices. My burger arrived with the plate burning hot, but food itself was lukewarm and bottom bun was soaking wet from sitting. I ordered dessert and was told it would be out in about 10 minutes because they made it from scratch. My friends and I sat there for another 45 minutes taking and left. I pulled out onto Indian School Road and remembered my dessert that I had paid for and went back in. I was gone from the restaurant less that 3 minutes and when I went back in and saw our waitress, I asked her about it. She looked confused and said let me check on it. She never came back, but the chef came out and said “because I left and the dessert sat, it was cold and they would need to remake it. It will only take 4 minutes”. Because I left it???? As I was standing there, I’m immediately following the exchange with the chef, someone came up to me, didn’t introduce themselves, and asked if I was okay. Since I didn’t know who this person was, I said yes. 4 minutes turned into 20 and I still didn’t have my dessert and I came to realize that the person who asked if I was okay was either the manager or the owner, as they sat and talked with long standing customers and then went to a table that had laptop and financial books out everywhere. This person never checked back in with me even though I literally was standing next to a table without ever sitting down. The chef finally came out at the 30 minute mark and said sorry about that and handed my dessert to me. Overall, just not not a good experience. We will not be going back.

    The service was not as good as expected. It was crowded and understaffed at the bar.

    LOVE this restaurant. We had a large party for the New Year. The majority of our party was late, which I was so embarrassed about. The staff was so kind, friendly, and accommodating. Once the remainder of our party arrived, we had a WONDERFUL time! Spectacular food, drinks, and service. Can’t wait to go again!

    Nice neighborhood bar. The food needs a lot of work, The limited options are not that delicious need more vegetarian friendly options. Bruschetta charcuterie boards salads need to be super fresh & easy on dressing. Food needs to be HOT grilled cheese needs to have delicious cheese not American cheese..
