    Visited to see what the hype was all about. Entrance was very nice. Host sat us at a table. We waited about 30 minutes and no waitress greeted us or asked us for anything. Had to go to the bar and order everything. Then we left, drinks weren’t good. Place was not busy at all.

    It was a wonderful experience and so festive!! The food was delicious. We had the BBQ wings, spicy chicken sandwich (sorry forgot the name), and the soft serve sundae with multiple chocolate toppings. Overall, a great experience!!

    It was nice the food especially the colorful burgers were extremely good shockingly but I was not expecting our waitress to rush us the entire time we were there I get that there is a hour and 30minute sitting limit but she made us feel completely rushed from the moment we sat down

    La reserva era para zona de mesas pero solo nos permitieron comer en el bar donde la carta era muy limitada. Por otra parte, pagué el café más caro de mi vida (12 bucks) porque no había opción de no comprar una taza del lugar, era obligatorio!!!! Algo increíble y nunca visto. De ser así podrían esforzarse más con la taza para que al menos sea atractiva. La comida bien de sabor pero porciones pequeñas. Lindo acondicionamiento navideño pero no volvería ni lo recomendaría.

    This is my second year going and this year was the best year!!!! Kourtney was our waitress and she was soooooo amazing and accommodating and just a overall nice girl. We talked about her future and her growth with the company and I wish her nothing but the best. This year was so warm that we were able to enjoy everything without. freezing. The food was excellent and the drinks are always on point. I just only wish that the owner continues to do things like this and offer more throughout the year. We love Santa Baby Bar and can’t wait for next year!!!!! If you ever need a tester for new food and drinks, I’m your girl!!!!!

    I think the girl cheat us out of a drink , she didn't show examples of size and our drink was small and charged 35 but the table across had a bigger cup for same price , don't make sense , fries was cold, wasn't social distancing going on , the server didn't pay no attention to us , and she forgot about us and we waited like 25 mins and when we saw her she was talking to some man and look like she gave him her number

    Great ambience for photo ops. Definitely a place to go to if you're looking to up your social media game. Food quality is horrendous aside from it being pricy. Chicken wings were greasy. My kids didn't even eat their fries. It seems like the food was already precooked and just reheated when served to us. Service was efficient, our waitress kept checking on us which was very nice. Would go back here for drinks but would definitely fuel up first!

    The owner is brilliant to change the restaurant for the holidays after baseball season is over then change it back again. Santa Baby is a fun place to eat with tasty food and a nice beer selection. Other restaurants nearby looked empty. The decorations were great which makes an excellent place to take pictures.

    It was an okay experience. It was not too loud or quiet. The food seemed over priced for the amount that we got. The chicken we ordered had a lot of grease on it and the fries were warm and not hot.

    They sat us next to the door which was annoying because there were two entrances which in reality there was one only … and everyone and their mama kept opening up. Our waitress only came around once the whole time we were there. Fries were cold and our nachos didn’t even have enough meat probably like 5 little pieces. Super disappointed.

    I made reservations but I was running 15 minutes late. I tried to call but on one answered. When I arrived I was told that my reservation was canceled. I asked the manager why was my reservations canceled when I arrived within the grace period. The manager rudely told me that I didn’t and gave my table away.
