    Only issue was the table we were at. There was a big open spot and I scooted my drink and it leaned into the open spot and fell and landed all on my friend and the floor. However, food, service was excellent.

    Great atmosphere, good food. But food came out at different times and a lot of it was cold, which kept it from being a 5 star experience. I still would recommend though!!

    Paying for parking is ridiculous- one reason we will not be back soon. Food was very good, waitress was super sweet!

    Cute restaurant with good food and good service. We were a party of 4 attending a concert at the Schuster Performing Arts Center so we booked the restaurant early 4:30pm to have plenty of time to get to the concert. We are glad that we did because the restaurant filled up early around 5 pm. We received our food in no time at all. We ordered the pretzel with beer cheese as an appetizer and it was really good. I got the Troll Melt and my husband got the chicken fingers and they were both good. Generous portions wee served as well.

    First time at the Dayton location, we’ve eaten at the Louisville location before. Fabulous drink choices and our food was amazing! Easy to make a reservation for our party of nine. The table was ready for us. Would definitely recommend and return!

    The staff got overwhelmed just before we arrived. The kitchen was coming off a complete beat down and couldn’t recover. We waited over an hour for our food. We weren’t in a hurry so it wasn’t a deal breaker. Food quality when we finally were served was ok. What should’ve been hot was warm or cool. The fish was really greasy and oil was pooling in the plate. The flavor was ok. I look forward to returning with a better experience. Our server saved the night.

    Since the troll house is a pub with pub food, we thought it would be a good relatively quick spot to go before a show downtown. We arrived on time for our reservation, two hours before the show started, and gave our orders immediately. We waited an hour and 40 minutes for two burgers that never showed up. At that point, we thanked the waitress who had been very kind and apologetic and comped our two drinks, but never got our food. Won’t be going back.

    I'm so sorry for how your night went! This is not usually the experience we provide our guests. I appreciate your feedback and we will continue to strive to be better every day. I wish you had let us box up your food to-go as we offered that free of charge as well when it was ready. We value our relationship to the public and all our guests. We would like the opportunity to try to make things right with you and would appreciate if you would give us the chance. -Raychel, GM

    It took 15 minutes for anyone to even approach our table for drink order. It took almost an hour after that for us to get our food. Burger and a club sandwich....

    We had a 7:15 reservation prior to a 9:30 show and our food, and others in the restaurant, never arrived. We left without eating. Overheard manager being confrontational with other guests about the same experience. Don’t come here if you don’t have 2 hours to wait for your dinner to arrive. Looks like a fun place and can’t speak to the quality of the food, but service was lacking.
