It was the perfect fall day and we made reservations for outside. Very pleasant and our server was a doll. The food was excellent, my friend had an omelette and I had eggs benedict on crab cakes. I've been a customer since the first week BBAT opened and it remains my favorite place to dine. Absolutely the best crab cakes in town. The restaurant was packed so best to make reservations. You'll love everything about BBAT.

The service and food was outstanding. Probably should add some tint or other window coverings above the front door entrance. We were eating around 7:00 pm and the sunlight was in my parents eyes pretty bad. Everything else was awesome.

I brought my wife here for a date night! The facility was very nice and the service was great! The prices are higher than they should be but the food was good. Their drink menu is really good. The steak I had was delicious but not worth $45. I’d charge $25 for the meal I had. I’d recommend eating here for a special occasion. Thank you!

Everything was great but both steaks were undercooked. Seasoning taste not so great on mine and the other was better when it came back. Overall, great place. Work on steak prep and it’s great!

Great location and decor, variety of food offerings for appetite and price. Like the butcher shop and bar too. Only complaint is there should be noise dampening added to the ceiling - with a full restaurant it was difficult to converse. Will go back.

It was not crowded and we had a reservation for 2. We were crammed up against a pony wall with barely room to read the menus and or move our elbows. We were surrounded by open tables. Very uncomfortable. Felt rushed even though it was a very slow day. Ordered medium rare but was served medium. Burratta appetizer was very tasty. Drinks were good. I was expecting more.

Our server was great & super helpful. Having made a reservation over a month in advance for my husband’s bday… i was pretty disappointed to be sat at the tiny table by the emergency exit sign. The table barely had room for our plates, had to constantly move them around… also had to sit facing the wall bc the sun was directly in my eyes, I was chilly so I ordered a cup of coffee and it came out room temp. Given it was our first experience it wasn’t a super great one. My husband did however enjoy his steak so that was good.

We reserved for 6 of us for our son’s 12th birthday on a rainy Saturday. The team from hosting to service were amazing. I would give them 10 stars if I could. The brunch was so yummy. We all tried some new things, and you just can’t go wrong. Especially loved the full-sized prosecco flights! Will return next year..wish we weren’t 900 miles away!

Had a great Steak Frites and husband had what he said was a very good Rib Eye. Other dishes enjoyed by our table of four included a fettuccine with shrimp which was gobbled up ! Excellent service by Mariah- best service we have had ever in Wilmington. The restaurant was packed on a Friday night and so lively it was hard at times to hear our fellow diners.
Overall, a very enjoyable experience .

Went for a late lunch. The menu is quite reduced, including signature cocktails, from their dinner menu but Kira, our server, offered us the steak options off the dinner menu. You're also given a large book of liquor and wine options. I had the Spring Sling which was delicious and I could have easily had two more. My boyfriend opted for a beer.

We started with their Wedge Salad which essentially was half a head of lettuce, such a large portion, with delicious bacon crumbles and homemade peppery blue cheese dressing. I had the Ramen which was a nice spin on a classic. Not a traditional Ramen, but still tasty (if you only like traditional you will not enjoy this), the best part was the pork belly. AMAZING flavor. The chefs were having a "burger off" so we received another menu with a list of 7 burgers or so, each created by a chef on their team. My boyfriend ordered the sole female chef's burger, The Margot. Cooked perfectly, the patty was made up of beef trimmings from the butcher shop, and the fries were herby homemade deliciousness.

Ambiance is clean and professional. A comfortable mix between fine dining and casual. Didn't feel pretentious even if prices said otherwise. There's an option to sit in the dining room where you have the view of the kitchen and butcher shop or in the bar, that's where we opted to sit so we could watch some of the Olympics. There is a beautiful simple bar to sit at with lots of high end liquor options on display or high top tables, where we sat.

Service was lovely and warm from the moment we opened the door to leaving. We interacting with hosts, server and the manager who came over to wish my boyfriend and me a happy anniversary.

Stopped by the butcher on our way out for marrow bones and a dry aged steak which came with beef fat and finishing salt to cook at home.
