We drove 10 miles to the restaurant to be told that due to a party they weren’t taking reservations. All previous trips were wonderful but we won’ return.

The airline chicken was fatty bits is a spicy gravy. Not as tasty as most airline food. The Caesar salad was quite light on the dressing. One of the wait staff did not wear a mask, but the rest of the staff did. Our server was very prompt in waiting on us and getting our orders, then did not return to our end of the room to follow-up after that. To get a second glass of wine required going to him to get it. I had to flag down another staff member to get a glass for my wife's ginger beer which was delivered in a bottle. The place had at least 5 servers and was not over crowded. We won't return.

The patio was great - very comfortable. The food was good - I think everyone liked what the ordered. The drinks were good too. Our server was very nice. Only issue is that our group of 6 was sitting on the patio chatting after paying the bill (approx $200) and at about 8:50 (close at 9) a woman who works at the restaurant said very very loudly from inside the restaurant "I AM ABOUT TO KICK EVERYONE OUT OF HERE". Was that directed at us? Could you maybe have been a tad more professional? Is that literally the only way you have to communicate that you are closing? That was disappointing and a complete turn off. We are happy to leave at closing time - just let us know when closing time is. Blasting the music inside the restaurant and yelling passive aggressive statements in the customers direction is not really the way to go. We live in the area - about a 5 minute walk. We are more than happy to continue to go to Sawmill Market where they politely go table to table to remind patrons when closing time is.

This will be our new go to... I had the Spicy Senorita Margarita, I asked for the second one with a little less “Spicy” they were both good. We shared the Mac and Cheese, it was also spicy but excellent flavor. I had the Green Chile Cheese burger and my husband had the Ole Boy Blue burger, we had regular and sweet potato fries. I we didn’t have one complaint!

Way too noisy! My ears were ringing after just a few moments inside. Couldn't hear yourself think let alone converse with your own party.

First visit. Had the green chile pasta and a Cuban sandwich. The beer, the Scotia and the Summer, were good. Service was quick, attentive, and vitreous. Inside seating is rather small but there is a decent sized patio. Tonight, there was a large crowd at the far end of the inside seating and the noise level was darn high. In fact another table of older folks decided to leave because of the noise. I suspect that not every night would be as noisy. Our visit was a nice night out. Hit them up if you want to try a new (to us) little casual bar.

Over all Two Cranes is above average in food, beverage and service. However the noise level is uncomfortable.

Food was great and reasonably priced. Drinks were good, but not $12 a drink good. Coming from a large city I expect drinks at this cost at more high end establishments. Staff were polite, but service was very slow. There were maybe 16 tables inside and out with 5-6 staff. You would think with that ratio your way Eder would’ve taken quickly or your drinks would come quickly, but alas they did not. Overall this restaurant is trying to find itself. High end prices for drinks, American comfort food, scantily clad wait staff...Next time I want a burger and fries I’m probably not headed here.

Food was good. I got pasta and it was pretty spicy. Seemed like everyone at my table’s food was over spiced.

Everything was great . The food and the service were excellent. I gave 4 stars for ambience because it was very windy out and even though we were seated inside we were right next to the open garage doors.

Our server’s attitude was hot and cold throughout the night. Beers are a bit expensive compared to most restaurants. A bit uncomfortable with all the workers not wearing masks except our server who was responsible and respectable to us. Even though our table was all vaccinated, we all wore masks upon entering inside the restaurant.

We had a very good experience. It was our first time to dine there.

Our server Dee was fantastic. Service was prompt and she helped guide some menu selections for a couple of choosy eaters in our group.

Gotta go here for the food.

One of my top five burgers of all time. I had the Green Chile Cheese burger with the green chilis on the side. I have a sissy tongue so glad I had them on the side as they were hot chilis but I tried to muster them anyways. They gave me a big old bowl of chili's. The burger was cooked wonderful and the bun was unbelievable. It was a big burger and so delicious, craving another right now.

One of the specials was the ceviche and it was great as well with some wonderful chips Wish we would have taken the waitress up on additional chips and just have taken them to go :-)

My son had the turkey plate and my wife had the mac and cheese and both were delicious. Already trying to plan our next trip back as there are other dishes on the menu we want to give a try.

The only bad thing I can say about this was the service was a little slow but we did go on Mothers day and with the pandemic these days you can expect a little slower service. Even with the slow service the staff was friendly and we will definitely be going back .

Everyone there was very friendly and accommodating. We had a reservation inside but then asked to be seated outside because they had a fountain feature my daughter was enthralled with. They moved us right away and were very nice about it. AND the food was delicious. We will be back.
