Oh hello there weary traveler. I see you’ve stopped at my post wondering about Tradition. Well, friend, wonder no more; for this place is paradise. Tradition is a beacon of guiding light for all who search to fulfill that longing in their bellies, a golden palace of delight for those who look to satisfy their hearts. If anyone ever suggests dining elsewhere, I shun them with a firm “Bye Felicia” and turn to Tradition and say “Hello Caity!” as she welcomes all who enter and runs an incredible, efficient establishment.
Last night I celebrated my third annual 30th birthday with my family, and right away Ceza (who is so amazing and makes you want to be best friends) warmly greeted us and got us drinks and small plates. The brussel sprouts and fried green tomatoes are melt-in-your-mouth delectable, while the funeral potatoes and Mac and cheese make you feel like you won the Super Bowl of internal hugs as you savor each cheesy, creamy, flavorful bite.
Their powerhouse bartender Rose slings the tastiest most thoughtful drinks, while I normally order her signature Nihon cocktail (which is too good to not be available everywhere) she actually made me a new surprise whiskey cocktail for my birthday that literally blew my mind. I deeply appreciate that she did that, it really made me feel super special! I hope it gets added to the menu, it’s something more people need to try…and we even named it!
The main entrees were unbelievably delicious, as always. If you like hot chicken, get the sando and ride that train to Satisfaction City: population you. If you like beef rib, 10000% get it, but be warned, it’s the best you’ll ever have and the only way to enjoy beef rib again is to always and forever return to Tradition. And oh my god…the s’mores brownie: I found love again.
There are many reasons one may dine at Tradition, and without fail every time it becomes a special occasion because of the delicious food, drinks, and super warm and friendly staff. This place is a gift!
Beautiful and down low place to go on a date on
Loved the food. Loved our server
I really love this place food and cocktails are consistently great. We sat outside expect rode noise on occasion.
Food is pretty ok. Our server was great.
had a late reservation, was seated promptly. great spot, unfortunately the kitchen was out of some food items at that time of the evening. The were quick to offer alternatives. I would go back.
Great food at a reasonable price.
I would kill to have this place in my neighborhood, but it's definitely worth the trip. It's a real gem.
Everything was great! Small plates are all fantastic, recommend the brussels sprouts, funeral potatoes and mac and cheese. Fried chicken is the best thing on the menu.
Excellent service from the moment we arrived. Food was superb especially the fried green tomatoes. Server was efficient and very nice.
We had a great service on a very busy night !
Menu did not match what was online. First 2 cocktails I tried to order could not be made. Two dinner menu items not available making the already limited menu extremely limited and mostly chicken dishes. I used to love this restaurant but Probably won’t be back for a while.
Trout and Fried Chicken were both amazing! Just go!
The cauliflower appetizer was unusual, delicious and well worth a try. The other food was delicious as well and the service was great.
Fantastic meal! Flavors were amazing. Service quick and friendly.
Food was excellent! True comfort food. Service was on par, nothing to complain about. We sat outside, because inside was a bit noisy. It was great except for the occasional motorcycle. Overall a great experience!
Food & service were top notch. They need to issue fly seaters so you can kill the pesky house flies that were annoying!
Loved food, service and ambiance. Great spot.
Fantastic, creative vegetarian choices!
Drinks were fun and delicious. We had the funeral potatoes to start and they were very hot. Just slightly warm but very tasty. I had the short ribs and again the dish didn't come out hot just warm. Very flavorful. It's quite loud in there but very friendly service.
Continues to be a favorite place of mine. Hard to share reviews on places like this, because I don’t want to have to compete for seats as it gets more popular.
Server forgot our drinks, appetizers were good, main entrees took too long and was over salted. Server was not friendly, barely paid any attention to our table. Very disappointed.
Apps were delicious, especially the fried green tomatoes and pigs in a blanket. Entrees also great. I had chicken & dumplings, very tasty, then tried my guest’s meatloaf, OMG! Service was very good.
We will come again! We were seated soon after we entered. We had reservations! The service was excellent, our server was friendly and efficient! The food was refreshingly unique and delicious! There were a couple of flies that kept landing on our food! We came to traditions from the recommendation of our son and our . daughter in law. The hamburger was the best I’ve eaten in a long while!
Tradition is a good and a could be great restaurant. Outstanding service and a great bartender. The food quality was good but the choices were too limited. Has a 2 year old menu on open table with some really great entrees (and not expensive ones)that have disappeared. If you go there a couple of times there’s no reason to return unless you want to order the same thing again. Hoping for a new and expanded menu soon.
Quality, nutrient dense, delicious and fresh food that makes you feel superb. Beautiful, hip vibe the only place I’ll go for a nice dinner date night.
Good food and service. Be ready for some spicy and unique dishes!
The trout and beef were fabulous. The chicken was dry. Very tasty.
The food was delicious and the service was great. I had been here previously, but only for brunch, this was the first time experiencing the dinner menu. We ordered the brussel sprouts and pigs n a blanket for appetizers, and had the short ribs and chicken & dumplings for our main course. All were super tasty. The servers were very attentive and friendly. Looking forward to coming back and trying some additional menu items.
Ordered the chicken and it was very moist and tender
Our waiter Adrian was over and above last night!! He knew the menu very well and also the food! He was very helpful for our first time going here. The food was served quickly and was delish! I would say the service was great and the food was really good. The noise was a little bit loud but we were still able to talk comfortably. It would recommend and will return again. Thank you for the nice evening!
Wonderful to come back to Tradition at a long COVID-created break. Still great food and drinks!
Excellent small plates and entrees made the vegetarian, the carnivore and the omnivores in our group all very happy!
Pretty good! A little slow but great food and flavors. Menu could be expanded for vegetarian a bit
Good food and great service.
Food was great. Service was slow, but we’ll worth the wait.
Great food. Great service. Came here for my anniversary dinner.
Got a recommendation from a friend. Absolutely loved the food and drinks. Will be back.
It was quite enjoyable.
Food was absolutely fantastic and drinks were tasty. Would definitely recommend!
