The food was very good but very salty. An hour after dinner I was looking for some water.

There were 4 in our party. Each one of us tried something different. I chose to make a meal of muscle appetizer, it was excellent. My husband had the catfish poor boy, which he enjoyed. One of our friends had blackened catfish, she raved about it. The fourth member of our party enjoyed the chicken pot pie. We all decided we would return soon.
Our server was energetic and fun as well as helpful. We definitely put this restaurant on our list of places to frequent.

We very much enjoyed our dining experience at Switch. We were two couples out for dinner before a show at the Phoenix Theatre. The food was very good. I had the Switch salad which was very yummy. Our server was very attentive and accommodating. Our only negative comment would be that once it got busier, the noise level was not conducive to a comfortable conversation. We will be back, perhaps at a quieter time!!

Wonderfully considered recipes and beautiful presentation. Combination of flavors of both the soup and salad were superior, creative and absolutely delicious. Nice ambiance, though a little on the "cold" side for my personal tastes with a lot of black and silver and hard floors. Some really interesting and diverse paintings throughout the restaurant. This clearly is not a "rubber stamp" place - but rather a delightful, unique place to dine. And very reasonable prices to boot! Really liked Switch.

A neighborhood favorite; tasty, reasonable, comfortable. Good service, friendly staff and an unquestionable go to place for easy relaxed drinks, or lunch or brunch or even dinner. Weekends could become loud based on the crowd (Tin ceilings) but if that's no issue ...othewise go on slower days Mondays, Tuesdays, Weekday eves or early brunch. Highly recommend.

It gets really noisy here, but the food is worth it. If you like French fries, their twisty fries are the best ever!!

Always enjoy lunch here. They were particularly busy that day. I was so glad I made open table reservation. Apparently the restaurant next door was,open f0r lunch that day. So glad to see the manager step and pitch hit where he could. It ended up being an excellent lunch and we were taken care of

The service was excellent. The restaurant was noisy and busy. I had the chicken sandwich with bacon which was quite enjoyable. The onion on top (pickled or jam) was a lovely and unexpected flavor burst. We had Bloody Marys which were so/so. I forgot the other entree but my husband said it was good.

First meal at Switch Restaurant and we'll be back......

We really enjoyed our first visit to Switch Restaurant. If you are looking for some fantastic comfort food, this is the place! Our server, Kaylee, was terrific! She was knowledgeable about the menu and gave us some great recommendations and she made sure she checked on us throughout the meal to make sure we had everything we needed. My husband started his meal with the cast iron clams. So good....they didn't last long! We both had the buttermilk chicken entree. This too was really good. It's hard to find good fried chicken, but Switch knows how to do it! I had the green tomatoes with mine which was so good, I could have made a meal on that alone. They give you so much food, we had plenty to take home for another meal! We will definitely be back!

We went for restaurant week and had a great time! It was a 3-course price fixe meal with drink pairings. Everything was good. For starters I had the tater tots which were the size of large marshmallows with a spruced up ketchup. My friends had a watermelon salad that was yummy. Dinner was short ribs in a to die for dark gravy. Very tender and flavorful. I had the scallops on corn risotto. So. Much. Flavor!! Dessert was bread pudding for most of us and a chocolate brownie sundae for others. Again, so yummy. The food was cooked perfectly. The portions were just right. Our server was attentive, friendly, helpful. We are looking forward to our next visit to eat off their every day menu. Oh yeah, big booths and nice outside area to eat in. Please visit this place!!!

The food quality was excellent and really enjoyed sitting out on the patio. The service was a bit slow and disjointed. Not sure if that was an issue with the kitchen/bar or with the server.
