    Amazing food and terrific service. You can’t go wrong with this spot whether it’s a business meal or date night. It’s got a little something for everyone.

    Had a reservation for 6:30 before an 8:00 concert. Didn’t get any food because they were busy. Cancelled our food order at 7:45 because we wouldn’t have time to eat it. Only 5 people ordered food. Very disappointed.

    Our first time here. It was very busy with a large group arriving and moving into a party room. Understandable that service might be slow in that case and our server was was very friendly and nice. Still, it could have been much better. Food was hit and miss. Would recommend the perch tacos. Prices are very reasonable.

    If you have a lot of time and are not hungry this place is for you. We waited over an hour from the time we ordered to the time we finally saw our food. It was nearly an hour and a half to be honest. Once we were offered refills on our drinks that we were telling our children not to fill up on as food was on the way. Once the waitress came to check if a condiment would be ok on one of the meals and apologized for the long way (we were already at an hour by this time) This seems to be a very common trend for this establishment and I am not certain why the management wouldn’t do something to address it. From the floor it was staffed adequately. I could not see the kitchen, but they never made a skip the dishes driver wait a moment for their food. If this is the reason the dining room is being held up you need to adjust with staff or shut it off to give the attending customers. The food was subpar, but prices were ok. Having two children wait that long for their food (which was already a late dinner because both parents had to work and just wanted a quick easy dinner out) is unacceptable . Not keeping your guests informed and letting them know the struggles is unacceptable. I would have spoken directly to the manager but by late evening we just wanted out and anyone that could have been in charge obviously could see the struggle around them and did not care. Visit some other places in our community and watch how they handle and influx in customers. The last few times this has happened I left rave reviews about how amazing the staff and manager were. Had no issue waiting 2 hours due to a hockey game, Covid calls and just opening back up from lockdown. I only knew the struggles because I was approached and not ignored. Shake my head with Hudson public and it’s a shame. Take a note from the multitude of people complaining about the exact same issue. Hope you can turn it and do well in the future, our family sadly won’t see that come to fruition.

    Great spot for corporate lunch, date night and besties dinner. I love the pretzel bites with spinach dip, and the Buffalo chicken wrap is always perfect.

    Went before Elton Rohn concert. Arrived at 6 and let server know we were going to concert at 7:30 and asked if the food we ordered was appropriate for our time frame. They assured us it could be done. Service was slow right from the delay in our drink order and they were clearly under staffed for the night of a concert. Got food in takeout containers at 7:25pm....ate gross food after concert that was sitting in our car for 3hrs!! Never going back!! When asked to talked to shift manager our server advised us that she was told they couldn't talk to us because "they were in the weeds" and to call tomorrow. Brutal!!

    When we arrived, we found out there were no French fries available, as well as other items. We understood. It did take a while to be served.
