Always love Spirit's, all the food is GREAT. Drinks were good as well. Only complaint was that the live music was so loud, could hardly hear the other people at the table.

Food was great. Unfortunately some of my party didn't make ut and the server wasn't all too pleased about that. My water needed refilled and it didn't happen. One of our party got their meal almost at the end of when the rest of us were almost finished.

Food was mediocre at best, seemed there was too much on the menu. Service was okay, noise level was very high.

Had a good time with friends. Had a live band that particular night and once they started playing you couldn’t hear each other talk..it was loud. The food was ok but the appetizers were amazing!

Upon arrival the reserved table was not set up and ready. However, after 10 minutes it was done. Several other guests arrived that were unaccounted for and the staff quickly accommodated everyone. While my husband's steak was excellent, my daughter's garlic shrimp pasta was horrible. It had a fishy taste and was swimming in oil. I think the kitchen might have been overwhelmed with the amount of patrons at one time so some food came out cold.

Reservation was made and table was ready but they seem to have a hard time with special requests. If you need something specific done I'd get there way early. Great Bands!

Overall, Spirits was amazing. The service was the only bad part. She was eating in front of us and our food was slowly dying in the window. She was even chewing food at the table. We had to ask for menues, forks, appetizer plates, and salt and pepper. She just didn't Seem very interested in being our server. She must have just known she was going to get gratuity so it didn't matter.

I set up a lunch meeting for a party of 12. The table was ready when we got there (early) and the host and wait staff were amazing. All of my coworkers are from out of town, and EVERYONE raved about our dining experience! They all want to come back for dinner and drinks!
