Unfortunately, there was one bartender on the weekend day we went for lunch. We sat at the bar which had other patrons. She was making drinks for all the tables seated and while normally I can understand this, she did not even say hi for five minutes. AND to top it ALL off, the manager on duty (who either used to be or is a bartender there as well) stood at the end of the bar and watched as we sat at the actual bar with nothing. He should have been an actual manager and paid attention and helped the girl out.

My daughter and I have been coming here for a few years for Easter and/or Mother's Day Brunch. They have just the right amount of selections and we always leave happy. My daughter LOVES your salmon over rice please never take it off the brunch buffet menu. Even on a hectic day like Mother's Day the staff was super pleasant.

Mother’s Day brunch was amazing!! Everywhere we go it is always crazy for Mother’s Day, but it was a relaxed setting with amazing food, and a great value for the price. I will be going back for Father’s Day with my husband and son. Thank you to all the amazing staff who made an experience wonderful.

Went for the Sunday Brunch Buffet and was very disappointed. While the menu was varied, the hot food was cold, many empty serving trays were not being refilled and the meats on the carving board were over-salted and cold even sitting under a heat lamp. Our waiter was attentive and the only bright spot during this visit. I cannot recommend and will not be back.

The server making the omelets has poor cooking/people skills. The waffle machine is old and needs to be cleaned as my sons waffle was full of black burnt pieces. The waiters and waitresses were standing around doing nothing, my 10 year old made a comment about that. Also the bar tender was playing with his beard near the food the entire time. He should shave it or wear a net. My screwdriver was very weak.

This is my third time going to this brunch. I have always loved it but will not return after this experience. My family spent $100 on poor food and service. So sorry as this has always been my go to brunch spot.

Great service, good price, food was excellent, awesome beer menu and wine. The hostess was not the most friendly, which we understand that the place was mobbed, but still, you are the hostess, need to make people feel welcome no matter what! Smile!!

Server forgot drink order for over 40 minutes. Food took 1.5 hours to come out, and the server never came to check how the food was, or if we needed anything else. All of our steaks were over cooked. He also added a 20% tip to our bill.

Very good elevated pub food but the staff can't seem to handle the busy dining room. The manager was ineffective and did not address the poor service. It took 30 minutes to get our drinks after ordering and over an hour for our entree to arrive. The people behind us walked out without eating! We will never go back.

From the outside it doesn’t look like much, but inside was a big improvement. There was a bar area with high top tables and an extensive craft brew menu. Off to either side of the bar were smaller rooms, stone-faced walls with flickering candle glow - great for a family gathering or even a business casual date night. At first glance the menu seems quite eclectic, but we had a party of 8 and everyone was able to find something they liked. The Mac from burgers to hangar steak to roasted chicken. The steaks and burgers were cooked to the requested temp (not over or under cooked) and portions were more than ample. We couldn’t decide on desserts so we ordered one of everything and shared and they were all delicious - my personal favorite was the bread pudding warm and creamy but not overly rich. The staff was EXCELLENT!!! Even with a party of 8 indecisive people the staff was friendly, offered suggestions, laughed, and brought us extra utensils for sharing .... the manager also stopped over to make sure everything was to our liking.

Great staff, Great food, Great time! Can’t wait to go back again!!

The food was very subpar. Nachos were kinda cold. Friend got pizza and it literally tasted like something you’d get at a bowling alley (soft crust, terrible sauce). My burger was so so. Service was slow - they took out our dishes one by one and the last person to be served waited 5-10 mins after the rest of us received our food. They were very apologetic about that though, and did comp us dessert. Go for drinks and good atmosphere, not food!

I hadnt been there for a few years. They did a nice renovation, there was plenty of room and nice ambience. Food was delicious. Waiter was nice and did his best although he had too many tables due to a staff shortage. Luckily, my group was in no hurry and all was well.
Note: they need to get Stella Artois on tap.
Ps coffee from the individual coffee press was outstanding.

We had a reservation and wound up stuck in a small table in a major walkway leading to the bathroom. The place was really loud and while the food was excellent the service was terrible and it took over a half hour to get our food. Never going back!

Overall we had a very nice experience. Service was a little slow but we weren’t in a rush so it really didn’t matter. Food was very good and drinks were good as well. Atmosphere was quiet and laid back. Overall a nice experience. Wait staff was friendly and engaging without being intrusive. Would definitely go back again.

Group on 12 girlfriends for a Holiday Brunch...a little confusion at first with the number of guests and the seating they had pre-set. Issue was immediately resolved by the manager and our waiter Michael. Michael was EXCELLENT!! Only complaint was that you were short on coffee cups and coffee carafes. Food was yummy, we were not rushed and service was excellent...good value for the price!

Went on a "date night" and got a special seating close to fireplace in private section of restaurant Food and service was outstanding! Craft beers & cocktails = great! The Coconut Hummus, Chickpeas & Quinoa salad, Ribs and the Cookies-&-Cream Bread pudding are absolute winners and highly recommended! Will definitely go there again Thank you for a great "date night" atmosphere

Experience was top notch, server was on her A-Game and from the moment we walked in to the moment we left the host made sure we had the best experience possible. Would definitely recommend to anybody looking for a great restaurant in the area that’s not cookie cutter.
