Revival Public House - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
After a rather iffy start to our visit - waited for ~10 minutes before someone noticed us & offered to seat us. Fortunately, it was the bar tender! The waitress who was supposed to have our table was stressed out - not sure why. However, it all came together beautifully as the bartender knew a lot about the beers on draft ($3/pint during brunch) & also the menu! She made an awesome spicy Bloody Mary ($4 during Brunch!) which included a strip of bacon! GREAT service once seated & GREAT food! I had the pork carnitas tostado (GF options are plentiful on the menu as they use corn tortillas in most dishes).
Got there and had to FIND someone to tell them we had a reservation?? When we did, she was towards the back of the restaurant and just pointed to the bar area for us to find a table?? When we got in the bar ALL the tables against the windows needed to be bussed?? Couldn't get the attention of the bartender, so we left.
Had dinner at another restaurant in the area. When we walked back to our car 1.5 hours later, we noticed your tables STILL weren't bussed and the place was a ghost town??
- The food was pretty good. Very hearty.
- The drinks were delicious. I had a bloody marry which had just the right amount of spice and salt.
- The ceiling kept dripping on us so that was gross
- Service was decent, but empty plates sat for too long on the table making it hard to enjoy the space.
Stopped in here while figuring out the Saturday agenda, this is a neat place great beer menu lots of local beer. The restaurant is very nice cool/casual interior with modern touches. Really impressed with the food. The bruch menu still had breakfast items. I had a breakfast chicken enchilada that was great, big portion spicy and piping hot with black beans/mole. I also tried the cheese grits as a side very good My girl friend had the burger item, really nice fries crispy but still a soft center.
Had a couple of local brews and the bar looked decent.
My only comment was not a lot of diners around 3 PM. I think the location unfortunately has something to do with that. So this is a hidden gem that desires to succeed and will if the word gets out.
Avoid at all costs. We were told by the barman to "get out if we didn't have reservations" when we first entered. We explained to the hostess that we DID have a reservation and sat at the bar to have a drink & wait for the remainder of our party (5). The same barman ignored us for the next 15 minutes and managers explained that they were severely understaffed and would be unable to provide an adequate dining experience. We left when our guests arrived.
My family and I went here last minute for brunch on a Sunday. The food was surprisingly good and the service attentive. The presentation was very nice! We had two more people join us after we ordered and the staff was very accommodating fitting them in at the table. The place was pretty empty and would definitely fit a large group easily. There are tables outside, but it was too chilly to eat outside.
So we tried Revival Public house on Easter Sunday. I expected the experience to be much better than it was. The server was kind and attentive; however, he could not make up for the food and the tiny "brunch buffet" at the front of the restaurant. We paid a pretty penny for the brunch, and we all thought it was just okay. I know it is a fairly new restaurant, so I hope it will improve for future customers.
My husband and I along with two friends came here for Easter brunch. Everything was delicious! The food was amazing, the selection of items at the buffet were great and the service was spot on. They have a great beer and wine list and a great little patio that has good people watching right out front. We'll definitely be back. I can't wait to see what the regular menu has to offer.
When waitstaff is horrible the entire experience is ruined. Waited more than 15 mins to get our drinks ordered. Waitress never inquired if we wanted another drink for the remainder of the time and we had to flag her down to get refills of water and coffee. Not once did she stop by to ask if we needed anything. The food did not come out together, first two dishes, later the third and finally the fourth (it wasn't crowded). The food was below average. The beef tenderloin eggs Benedict was small and dry. The Migas'had a spongy textured egg. Out of the 4 of us only one person ate their food, the green enchiladas. Best food came from buffet, cowboy caviar and biscuits and gravy. When paying $27 this was a terrible value for a brunch.
The Nashville Hot Chicken sandwich is HOT! Truthfully, I didn't know what a Nashville Hot chicken sandwich was so this 'really' surprised me but spice aside, it was a bit too oily, or greasy for my liking. Manager was excellent, and extremely gracious in her handling of the situation. Friend had salmon and loved it, biscuits with bacon jam fantastic. I'll definitely come back with friends.
Service and drinks were good. Food was just ok biscuits and gravy, while the flavor was there the quality was not. Gravy was great however biscuits were somewhat hard, since it was early on Sunday seemed as though they were left over from the day before. Nashville Hot Chicken while the flavors was there the heat was way to much. The should be a balance between the heat and flavor, mostly the heat overpowered that. I would go back as it was not a trainwreck but it isnt something that I would say is on my to do list.
