Our first trip to The Troll Pub and it was ok.
No wings!
Salads were brought with our meals. Should of been delivered prior to our meals.
Service was ok. No condiments came on the burger asked for mayo and mustard and it came after I was done eating it.
Probably will never return or recommend.

It was a fun atmosphere. We were a little underwhelmed by the salads due to the description in the menu, but the food was good and our server did a great job.

Laid back atmosphere with lots of energy in the room. Really cool bar tables and a very attentive staff. Great beer and drink selections and outstanding food. We were driving past Dayton and looking for a spot to grab dinner and a beer and lucked into this place. Absolutely the best BBQ chicken pizza I have ever had. We will definitely return on our next trip through town.

We had a great first time experience at Troll Pub celebrating Father’s Day. The food was delicious and the drinks were good. I had an Electric and my husband had a drunkin root beer, yummy! Frickles are a must try! The ambience and service were also on point.

Took my daughter there for dinner on a Saturday night, had never been before. Biggest thing for me was the TouchTunes jukebox was playing trap music almost exclusively. And really loudly. My daughter picked four songs from a different genre, and they never came up. So, that really isn’t Troll Pub’s fault entirely, and it IS a bar on a Saturday night in an urban area. So maybe I should have expected as much. But the service was not great. Waiter paid just barely enough attention to us to keep it from being a problem, but we saw him paying lots of attention to larger tables. Food was okay. Nothing wrong with it, I got a spicy black bean burger and it was just pretty dry. Not bad, just not great. We both ordered dessert, mine came out 10 minutes before my daughter’s. Just as I was about to complain to the waiter and trying to get his attention, her dessert came, and then he checked on us.

I love that I can make a reservation, and they had a good beer selection. I’d probably go back with friends if others wanted to go there, but it was not at all what you’d imagine a typical reservation experience to be.

Everything was phenomenal except the paid parking.

A barcode like they use for the menus with a sign stating it’s paid parking along with name of company or very least the website should be posted on the gate as you come into the patio area. Other than that.... we love TTP!

Our waitress was great, but the pub seemed to be a little short staffed as she was running her poor self ragged. Food was ok, beer selection was great. Not so hip on hearing the kitchen staff yell the f-bomb as I walked in though.

We were seated immediately and our server was at our table within several minutes it's of our arrival. He was polite and knew the menu well. He got our food to us in a reasonable amount of time and kept our drinks full. The food was excellent. The atmosphere was quaint and clean. We will return.

Reservations at 5:45 and seated right away. Happy hour drink prices were good. Two of us ordered fish and chips and they were not good. About a quarter of each piece were hard and I have had them before and they were good so must of had a bad bunch of fish.
