As a vegetarian i loved that they included the (V and GF) next to certain food options. But i ordered the biscuit and gravy and you wouldn’t think by the way it sounds that it would have meat in it but it did. The gravy had small bits of ham in it that was NOT in the description. Just something to be aware of you have a different eating preferences.

Slightly disappointed by the menu and their prices. They didn’t have much to offer (especially on the healthier side) and it was pretty pricey! Great decor and friendly service. But they can improve on their menu!

Night out with friends! 3rd time at Uproar and service was just as bad as the previous times. I understand it’s hard to find employees right now, but the bar was not busy and it took 32 minutes to get our drinks

Everything is fried, blah. Disappointing. So loud that you couldn’t even converse without shouting. Service was acceptable.

We must have asked for the next round of drinks three times before getting them, for both the second and third round. Would have gotten another appetizer too but our entree got there before the waitress came back around

The food is amazing! Wings and fries! I want to try the burger!

My only complaint is the menu is misrepresented. You can’t mark items as gluten free if they are cross contaminated in the same oil as the glutenous food. The waiter (bar tender) kindly informed me of the cross contamination before I ordered. It was my choice to move forward. I don’t like to, but, in this case, the food was so amazing. Yummy!!

It was too loud upstairs so my date and I chose to sit at the bar downstairs.

This seems to be a place that focuses on drinks (bottomless for 2 hours worth of brunch) and adds food as an afterthought (while trying to be edgy with it). The bloody mary was fine, but the food was merely meh. Whipped cream cheese for the bagel & lox was far too sweet, with no substance at all. The lox itself was not very flavorful. The biscuit & gravy was also bland. We didn't try the fruit loop pancakes but they seem more a gimmick than anything anyone actually needs to eat. It's a nice patio in an interesting location, but just not worth it when there are so many other excellent choices around.

It was a sunny day and sitting outside was really nice. The brunch menu was limited but enough to make it work. Definitely comfort foods and very tasty! Although the ambiance was on the noisier level, outside we were able to comfortably converse. Inside was more of a party vibe. Both were nice, depending on what you are looking for.

I was with a party of 7 and we all ordered something different. We liked the idea of the bottomless mimosa brunch package but 1) didn't want to be limited to the available drinks and 2) thought it was a hair expensive considering those limitations. We all ordered something different and were very pleased. I had the chicken & waffle sandwich and was pleased once I got some hot sauce to put on it. I had the PB Old Fashioned to drink and it was perfectly fine - not something I'd insist people order, but not bad enough to not drink. Everyone else was very impressed with their meal. I would definitely suggest trying it out.

Excellent food and drinks! The $50 mimosa package with the brunch is genius. My girlfriends and I ate upstairs in a more secluded area, across from the upstairs bar and behind us was the view of the city! We got a complementary cinnamon roll for our food wait, which I highly recommend getting.

Absolutely loved eating dinner there! We went with the chicken tenders, the whipped feta, a burger, the soup, and the turkey club salad. Every single dish was a home run would definitely recommend going there or coming back! The cocktails we’re also delicious and inspired

My sister accidentally broke her glass she was drinking out of and cut her hand trying to save it from falling off the table. It was completely her fault, but they helped out with first aid and even gave us free shots (and took shots with us!). Good ending to a tasty meal!

Service was great, food was fine. Drinks were what you would expect in the area. If you had to wait 30 minutes for another place in old town I would much rather go to uproar because the wait there would be much less.

Had a wonderful brunch . We started with the cinnamon roll which was delicious . We also opted for the bottomless drink package and had fun trying new cocktails . The chilaquiles were my favorite . Beautiful space to have a relaxing brunch with a pretty atmosphere

Was seated and ordered a drink. After I was brought that drink I was told the kitchen closed 10 minutes ago. I would have just left to go eat somewhere else. So I had to drink my beer as fast as possible to get my wife and I to somewhere that had food. Also they have a huge sign that says “Late Night Eats”. It was 9:10.

I came with a couple friends to try out the bottomless brunch package and we were not at all disappointed! The drink options were amazing and the food was absolutely delicious. The space was super cute and I definitely want to come back to try out the dinner menu and the happy hour oysters. Our server Brayton was awesome. He was super attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Can’t wait to come back.

Cool and diverse menu. Not only was the server great, but the whole waitstaff were so on top of everything. New silverware, water refill, clearing plates were all dealt with promptly. Very impressive. Will definitely be back.
