A little dark but fits the theme. Love the bar! The menu is pretty limited and they were out of quite a few items but what we did order was really good! We have dietary restrictions in our family and would like to see more gluten free options, especially appetizers. Also it’s a bit pricey for the portion sizing on some items. Overall the experience was pretty good but probably isn’t somewhere we could go on a regular basis just based on cost.

I ordered the salmon dinner and the rice was way undercooked. There were multiple bones left on the fish. My husband ordered the hanger steak and it was really good. For the price Ibwas disappointed that they couldnt coom rice correctly. The flavors were really good though. One last thing that was sort of not a goid idea was they served a spicy sauce with the kids meal for dipping. It was hot sauce spicy and most kids wouldnt like that, we had to ask for ketchup instead. The restaurant is beautiful. Our drinks were good. Just thought it should be more fine dining on the food for the price. I woukd eat there again just never order the salmon. Ill probably do the pork chop or steak. Kids mac and cheese was good too.

Food was good but not amazing. Rice was undercooked. Annoying music was too loud. I felt like I was shouting in order for the person across the table from me to hear me. Had to ask person next to me to repeat. Couldn't hear people or waiter very well. Menu print was small and some things were not described well. For instance, the Salmon salad I ordered didn't list salmon as an included item.

I attended the costume contest which was the highlight, not much. The food at Vanders Keep was over priced ! I ordered a hanger steak medium and got six pieces of charcoal cooked tough meat. Thumbs down experience for a much anticipated event.

We were so excited to order their chicken dinner which was wonderful the first time we visited 6 months ago. But they didn’t have any chicken or the beef stew soup that we also wanted. We were forced to order 4 meals of the steak which was fatty & gristly and cooked wrong. The waitress didn’t come back after dropping off our meals so we sat there waiting for at least an hour. The manager gave us a small discount which was still too much, $100+ for 4 people for a waste of an evening and terrible food.

I recognize they were busy but waiting that long is not right. They staff didn't seem apologetic or even offer to do anything for us. It was my second time there so I know it's not always like that. I'll go back and give them another try because we like the place and the food.

I feel like it took almost 45 to 60 min to get our food once ordered and when we did it came out sporadically with some of us getting our food and others waiting another 10-15 min to get theirs. Server did the best he could but obviously there's some kitchen issues.

Our server, Glenda, was great and always had a great smile and bright attitude. It was my son's birthday and another server, Samantha Rose sang a beautiful Irish song to him.

Our kids had the grilled cheese and it taste as if it was marinated in butter it was disgusting. It took 40 minutes to get our drinks. We barely saw our waitress. The host who sat us was very cold to us and other guest. I wouldn't recommend eating here it's over priced for crappy food, and service, and it wasn't that busy when we were there.

Apple crumble was fantastic and amazing so was the crème brûlée. Over all a 2.5 out of 5 stars

I finished my meal before they got my glass of wine to me, so I canceled it. Really bad business to have a great bar that attracts people looking for high quality drinks and then ruin the experience by taking way too long to serve the drinks. Duh

The food was good, not memorable--but a little on the high side for the price, but the service was very very slow considering the restaurant was less than half full. I had finished half my entre before I received my requested glass of wine to go with it.
