Ok so the fact that they left things on the menu that they did not have in the kitchen was annoying. My waitress was awesome. Blonde girl was very nice and attentive. Dessert brownie was supposed to come with ice cream per the menu but when it came they told me the ice cream was an additional fee even though on the menu it says brownie with ice cream. It mentions nothing about a separate charge. Who does that? Food was not great. Fried chicken and cornbread was good. Margaritas were EXCELLENT. Salmon was super small yet costs 23.95. Sides were trash.

Sunday was the first time I had dinner at Relish. My family and I usually attended their brunches which has been some time. My date and I enjoyed our dinning experience and it felt good to go out to a safe and healthy environment especially during COVID. The food was excellent...

Good handle on setting Covid-19 set-up. Staff was attentive and the food was good. FYI - the catfish was good but a little salty.

Very Nice outdoor set up considering the circumstances. Jazz Trio played nice music during the dinner under the tent and the Relish Team provided quiet blowing space heaters as the temperatures declined. We met with friends from Manheim Township as we have not seen each other in years. As usual, the food, company, and Relish Vibe proved to be the Best Choice!

The food was not what I was expecting to be affiliated with Warm Daddy’s. The cornbread had actual corn in it (disgusting) and it was more like cake than actual cornbread. Mac and cheese tasted like it had one cheese instead of the number advertised. Deviled eggs needed a little more sugar but were the best thing we had. Buttermilk chicken didn’t taste like it at all. Turkey wings were tough. Greens were okay..service was slow. At least we can say we tried it.

My best friend and I wanted to listen to some live music and sit outside so we decided to check out Relish. Everything was very COVID-approved and the experience was exactly what we were looking for in terms of entertainment, food, drinks, and service.

Their waiter and waitress are just rude. Some of my food was cold. The place was outdated. The manager was very friendly but his staff, again, was the opposite of nice. The bartender was extremely rude and the drinks was subpar. I will not return to this establishment. I had such high hopes for this restaurant. Very disappointed

Tables were adequately spaced apart but the table top we selected to sit wasn’t clean. There seemed to be sufficient time to sanitize table tops because there was only one other table in use upon our arrival. Swiping the crumbs on the floor with your hand just won’t do. I appreciate the effort but...

It was one of the worst dining experiences I ever had. Fifteen minutes in no server to greet us. Had to let the manager know. Took another ten minutes after that to get a server. Took a hour to get food. Appetizers came with entrees. Took twenty minutes to get a Sprite. Plastic utensils at a sit in soul food restaurant. I know it is Covid but cheap plastic silverware. No sparkling water, no diet soda. I have come here multiple times, service fell off. Service so bad couldnt even enjoy the food. Server had a attitude.

When u order turkey wings u should have a choice between rice or mash potatoes the ice tea was too sweet and my bread pudding was cold and green's and cabbage don't go well together and it was cold and the turkey wings shouldn't have the tips on them.

Everything was fine, our waiter was excellent (young guy with cornrows). The pineapple bread pudding is worth returning for. My only gripe was there were no outside heaters. I wanted to see the band but me and my guest got cold and left.

Attended a friend’s performance at Relish — the staff was very friendly and was seated right away. It appeared that only one serve was working the outside dining area and I could tell she was a little overwhelmed. She forgot our cornbread and side of potato salad, so we had her cancel it. I ordered the Relish Cobb Salad and did not enjoy it. It has too much blue cheese and salad dressing. My sister ordered the fried chicken meal, which was delicious and enough to share. I enjoyed the vibe. Our drinks were fine and the performance was great.

This was my first time going to Relish Restaurant. I was looking for a good restaurant to celebrate my birthday. A friend of mine suggested, I go to Relish for my special day. Relish has a good reputation for some of the best catfish and butter milk cornbread. I ordered the catfish dinner, and I was blown away by boneless fish. My catfish was moist and very tender. Order the CATFISH DINNER!!!

Ok we sat outside, the mosquitoes attacked us.
They wouldn’t allow us to substitute our sides. Like if the meal cans with rice, & I wanted mashed potatoes they wouldn’t allow it. They said it was due to COVID19 but I still didn’t make sense cause they sent out the wrong sides anyways. We had the cornbread with honey butter. It came out dry & room temperature. No honey butter, but sugar sprinkled on top. I ordered the chicken & shrimp pasta. The pasta came out floating & surrounded in oil/grease. The pasta sauce & oil/grease was separated. Our waiter was nice, kind, patient & very familiar with the drink menus we had ciroc punch. So good.
