    Always enjoy eating and waiting for the concerts at Ludlow. The only issue I think that can be improved wpuld be the wait time between the orders taken and the actual food is served. Other than that, Ludlow is definitely a one stop concert date night ritual that anybody can definitely enjoy.

    Had dinner here and went to the Jeff Lorber concert in their venue (lower level). It’s a fun restaurant with open air seating near the sidewalk. A bit noisy next to the road but it’s part of the character of this site. The concert venue is wonderful. We had a great time eating excellent food and listening to incredible live music!

    Had reservation for dinner before the Al Stewart show. Were seated immediately. Ordered drinks and appetizers. Garlic Shrimp. It was excellent. Fish sandwich was even better; large piece of cod, lightly breaded and cooked to a perfect crispness. Server was friendly and attentive. Price was reasonable and well worth it. The entire experience was exceptional. Look forward to next visit. Would highly recommend to anyone!

    It was a beautiful day so the garage door style walls were opened. The staff was friendly and efficient. We ordered the burgers and they were the best we have had in awhile. Great selection of craft beer, too ( in cans mostly, not on tap though ) we loved that you could make reservations because we went to a concert there that night and were able to relax during the meal.

    We went to see the Spinners. All we had to do was walk downstairs! The combination can’t be beat. The bread pudding is huge and so are the salads.

    Hamburger was burnt. Requests for items were unfilled. Checks were left with no directions so we used app to pay. Very frustrating. Fish was good. Drinks were reasonably priced. Food was quick just not properly cooked. Ex:fries/tater tots cool. Server did not come back within reasonable time to send food back.

    We had dinner at the Ludlow Garage before seeing a show. The food was fantastic and my friends from out of town had a great time. The show venue downstairs is dynamite. Full bar, nice restrooms and it had the most padded and comfortable seats I have ever sat in at a concert venue. I will without any doubt be back!

    Ludlow Garage is a cool place with lots of Music History. Reminds me of New Orleans or Greenwich Village. Downstairs has an intimate performance venue that hosts National and international talent. The street level eatery/bar has yummy casual food and a nice selection of beers and spirits. Plenty of options for veg heads, paleo, gluten free, and carnivores. Our server, Natalie, was super sweet, attentive yet not intrusive. The people watching inside and outside is superb. Big Garage Doors open weather permitting. Some OT eatery reviews moan about prices. C’mon people, gas and food prices are soaring. Ludlow Garage pricing seemed fair and food portions plentiful. Concert Venue prices for tickets & beverages are not as expensive as big theaters and arenas.

    We went prior to see Billy Bob Thornton concert and glad we made reservations. However, I would advise to make RSVP at least 2 hours prior to show so you aren't rushing when food comes out. Service was extremely slow. Food was outstanding though. Great atmosphere! Definitely recommend checking it out. Just give yourself time for concert crowds.

    Sever took our order when she brought us our beers. After 30 minutes of no interaction with the waitress another waitress took my husband order for a 2nd beer. 15 minutes later our waitress, didn't come to our table but, looked at us and asked if we ordered yet!!!! She came back 10 minutes later and said the kitchen was busy and some orders got lost and asked us to remind her of what we ordered and re-took our orders...we said we didn't have time to wait for our food. We said mistakes happen & just order the fastest item we could get, the pretzels. She then brought us 2 beers and I said we didn't want any more beers. We wait 20 minutes and finally asked for our check.....she brought the check with the pretzels. We quickly eat about half of the order and paid our bill and made it to the show!! Service was terrible.

    Food was typical bar fare but good. However, the seats at the tables were VERY hard and uncomfortable, can’t restaurants get chairs that aren’t just hard wood?
