    The wait staff were not obtrusive, which we appreciated. Service was prompt and uncomplicated. Two members of our party had the Presley Bowl, and were especially pleased with it. We were visiting with friends we rarely see, and you provided a great environment for that.

    Great restaurant with good food. Great location. Loved the decor! Waitstaff so friendly and accommodating. However!!!!! that aircraft noise was just too disturbing. We had to pause our conversation so often that talking almost became a joke. Not sure what could be done about it but it really is too bad. If I recommended, I would have to alert them to the horrible noise.

    Our server was pretty bad, not gonna lie. We went here for brunch and I was super excited to go here as a lot of people recommended it to me. She was not friendly, and was just generally unenthusiastic, and maybe only came to our table 3 times with purpose. Anyways, The sweet potatoes in my breakfast bowl were extremely undercooked, so much that I could barely pierce it with a fork. I didn’t send it back, as I didn’t like to be that person. But I also didn’t finish it for that reason. The price of the food definitely did *not* match the quality or the breakfast selection. I’m probably never going to eat here again for that reason…but the ambiance is awesome! 5 stars for that. 1 for the service for sure. And 2 for the food. The rolls and the truffle butter were a great starter to share, but that was about it.

    One of the best dining experiences ever! Dog welcoming, with staff and fellow diners enjoying our canine friends. Food was incredible. Had Eggs Benedict which I usually order when I go out for brunch. This was the best I’ve ever had. Service was very attentive. Would definitely recommend.

    Wine, Kentucky mule, burger and chicken sandwich - both with fries. We enjoyed the drinks and meals - tasty flavor and generous portions. Our server was kind, on point, and seemed to enjoy customer interactions. Overall would recommend! There was also a birthday celebration among friends one table over, they were enjoying the space too!

    We had a holiday dinner at the Presley, and we had an amazing time. The whole group enjoyed the cocktails (per usual). Food was amazing between the dinner rolls, wings, pork chops, and salads. We were so happy with our experience.

    Great discovery in Liberty Station. I was looking for a restaurant that served brunch at 10:30 (many favorite spots don't start brunch until 11:30), had outdoor seating with heaters, had convenient parking, and accepted reservations. The Presley met all of my requirements and was really terrific. The menu was excellent for both breakfast and lunch, food was delicious, and service was outstanding. I look forward to returning soon.

    We didn’t get what we ordered and the waiter wasn’t very polite. He was actually rude. He told us that we needed to speak up when we want did him to take our order I think he should come to our table and say are you ready to order now instead of making us feel bad because we didn’t ask him to come over to our table to take our order.

    Our group of 6 retired educator friends gets together every quarter for brunch. I’d previously had brunch at The Presley and suggested it as an option. Our Saturday brunch was perfect. Cannot say enough good things about our server, Lynsey. She was personable, knowledgeable, attentive and professional. Our meals were fantastic, from the Presley Bowl to the Classic Benedict to the shrimp & bacon tacos to my delicious bacon cheeseburger. We will be back!

    First time at the Presley. We were there in the evening and sat inside bc it was chilly out but they have lots of heaters and they were many people sitting outside. The food was delicious! Get the Parker house rolls, they are amazing! Great happy hour for house wine $5! Our waitress was really great!

    Very nice covered outdoor restaurant with good decor and vibe as well as tentative and friendly service. There's good variety on the menu and it I've been eager and excited with everything Ive tried. This was my third time and each time I've ordered a different dish. I still found the food prep uninspired and lacking finesse. Take last night's grilled chicken sandwich. The chicken breast had not been pounded flatter to tenderize and make it manageable to bite into. It tasted like it was simply salted and peppered and put on medium heat to cook. No marination, no searing the outside to retain juices. So, you get a fat, flavorless and dry breast that even Linda Loveless would struggle to manage. I ate it open face and the accoutrements were its saving grace.

    Always love going to the Presley. The food is good, the drinks are good and the service has always been great. I ordered the breakfast sandwich with fries and it was very good. I like the location too as it’s near a lot of things and you can go shopping or for a walk after.

    Great spot for casual outdoor dining. Portions can be large, so splitting the wrap and getting an extra side is maybe the way to go for 2 people. My only wish is if they would change their thick fries to thin-cut fries or offer another option like tots or sweet potato fries.

    Great service but the food was unremarkable. The burger was ordered medium “with some pink inside”. Came out well done and dry. I wonder if the meat was too lean a mix. The shrimp and bacon tacos were just okay. The bacon got lost and the shrimp was under seasoned. The tortilla was not good. Best meal was the Presley bowl which was very good. Excellent vegetables and a large serving.

    Food was good - not great. Ordered a burger medium rare and it came medium well. We asked for more bread with our artichoke dip and weren’t told it would cost extra. Waiter very rarely checked on us and rarely refilled water. He was mostly out of our sight so we couldn’t even try to get his attention or he’d rush past us. Very annoying. Ambience was great and food was decent.
