When researching a restaurant for my birthday brunch, I wasn’t too sure about Wilson Hardware - I would read the review and the consensus seemed like 50/50. I’m here to tell you that this place is AMAZING! The food is so good and you get SO much food for the price. I was really shocked! The bottomless mimosas deal is really good too 🙌🏽. I definitely recommend!

Loved the rooftop seating and bar. They also had outdoor heaters so staying warm at night is not an issue!

Brunch was good. It was just annoying that the unlimited mimosas had to be bought by the WHOLE table. We had people come who drove for the day and could not drink so we had to pay extra money for them in order to get bottomless.

This was my first time at Wilson Hardware and I was so happy that I came in. The patio is amazing, the food is so good - the buffalo wings, the hardware burger, and oh my! The surf'n turf are to die for. And the portions are perfect. Great service also. Love this place!

FOOD: the food decent, came out ingood amount time, nothing spectacular just normal brunch food, the unlimited mimosas was TRASH---must have been juice, champagne and water drank multiple glass wasn't even tipsy which cost us $20pp per pitcher.

Service: was okay... got sat by the Bar by the bathroom ;/..asked to be seated by in a both and was told it was reserved. Then hr later the both was still empty and the hosted stayed the plp text her and stated they were not coming...come to find out they were her own friends not REAL paying customers. The waiter was okay at first he took forever to come to table, to bring the drinks and just to get his attention. he attempt to make it up at the end

Overall the restaurant was okay, i have had better brunch with much better service and drinks! and wish they played better music!

This was my first visit to the restaurant, the food and service were outstanding. I am excited to go back soon. I would say is loud in there and had to project a lot to have a conversation.

Food was okay. Main course arrived as we weren’t even half way through the appetizers. Amazing how little seating they have available on their deck and patio given how hard they try to turn a table. Clearly cater to the Instagram crowd that is mesmerized by the bursting of an undercooked egg. I’m sure it’s a fine place after 10.

Food and service were great! tables are spaced out to allow distancing and our server was incredibly attentive. We had a great brunch there. Definitely a great way to ease back into the outside :).

Not practicing social distancing. Server not wearing mask correctly. Allowed a party to sit directly behind me at the bar rail. Overall irresponsible and extremely unimpressed. Food was just OK. Server had nine tables at one time and we were ignored.

The food is very good here...outstanding chicken wings and other light appetizers. The atmosphere, not so great. It is dark, dingy and feels like a night club. The staff were so nice and service was great. I would not recommend this for a family dinner but for a date night could be fine. There was outside seating upstairs and we did not try that so it may be better there. We had a glass or two of wine/beer with our meal but there seemed to be a heavy drinking crowd (like sloppy) which is not really our thing.

I’m not as stoked about their food in large entrees. These meals were specifically created to be small plates. It doesn’t work as well and they tasted cold when they got to us. I’ll be happy when they can go back to small plates!

Everything is amazing about this restaurant but the thing that stood out the most is the workers there. Everyone from the owner down to the waiter were amazing.
Their personalities alone would make me come back.
This is the perfect place for a get together with you’re friends.
I will definitely come back to this amazing place!

The food and service was great. We went for brunch as a small group. Only downside was that the bottomless option for food and drinks is not available because of the limited menu during this phase of reopening. Other than that, great experience and cute bar.

A group of 8 of us tried this on a Friday night. The drinks were great and the food was pretty tasty. I got the scallops. The ambience is great, turns into a loungy place at 10:30, and a bit louder. Would definitely go again. Great service!!!!

The Bottomless Brunch is definitely the way to go. Loved the small plates and number of options. Short rib hash, chicken & waffle, salmon benedict, and the hardware hash browns are winners! We’ll definitely be back for another visit.

This is a Bar that serves meals. It’s not a restaurant. I guess I should have believed the name.

The location is good, and the ambiance is good. I was there on Valentine's Day with a co-worker so it might have just been an off-day.
