This is a fun place for a group and a special occasion. We visited for the Texas Tech Graduation and everyone had fun. There was music, which was a special treat for us after this year. Everything was great! We definitely recommend this as a fun place to go!
First let me say that we typically love The Funky Door, but they were pretty booked and so the only option was outdoor seating.
Never having eaten on their patio was not aware that the outside vibe is horrible ..... the nice/expensive meal experience that you get inside the restaurant is completely lost and feels like a huge rip off when eaten on the patio. We will not make that mistake again. Our server was very nice as was the balance of staff but could not make it better.
It was Mother’s Day. They only served a buffet. The buffet was good, but we had no prior notification in advertisement. A buffet just isn’t as good as menu choices. Would’ve loved to have had live music, but there was none. On a regular dining basis, not brunch, we’ve always been very, very happy with Funky Door. We just weren’t amazed on Mother’s Day, like we sort of expected.
Funky door never disappoints. Our waiter, Ben was awesome! I love the live music and amazing food!!
Very good food and service.
Favorite place to come when I’m in Lubbock !!
The sea bass is on point !!
He had to wait 20-30 minutes for an Old Fashion! Our waiter overall was a great one! The appetizers were great but our entrees were not!
We were super excited to eat at the funky door after looking at the menu. The building is beautiful and well designed, but the food was less impressive. Maybe we ordered the wrong thing? My husband's steak was under-seasoned and the sides were mediocre. My fish was good but the pineapple slaw had so many red onions I couldn't eat it. It was my husband's birthday and we received an email for a free dessert through the "birthday club". The waiter ended up charging us for the cheesecake, which wasn't that great either, and by the time he came back we were too disappointed to fight it. We are happy to pay high prices for high quality, but this restaurant does not deliver quality in my opinion.
It was incredible and great gluten-free options!
Great Saturday Jazz brunch. Music was awesome, food was good as always. Great venue for bridal parties, birthday celebrations, anniversaries and just to catch up with good friends!
The food here is fabulous! We had the chicken Cordon Blu and it was perfect. WInes are great--they have many wines by the glass and a full list of wines by the bottle that are reasonably priced. We love to come here, except for the music. Originally they wanted to see us up front, right across from the entertainment. Fortunately, we were able to get a small table further away, but the country music is still very loud. It is difficult to hear your tablemate and people are practically yelling to communicate. The restaurant decor is inviting and frankly, the music should be jazz, to match the decor. Still, we love it and highly recommend it for a casual evening out or a special celebration.
I can not say enough about the service!! We have been there 3 times and every time the service has been amazing. Knowledgeable, friendly, can balance conversation and other job duties, and accommodating. Food is excellent for a great price. Liquor menu has something foe everyone. We have only dined outdoors, but the interior looks great as well. We will be eating inside next as the music sounds great. Highly recommended!!
We we’re stopping for the night in Lubbock and discovered The Funky Door while looking for dining suggestions. What a gem and completely unexpected. The food was delicious, the service was near perfect and the whole vibe was such a treat. If you’re a wine lover, this place should not be missed. They even had live music. All the patrons looked like they were having a great time. Lots of locals were there! Enjoy!!
The food was great and it’s such a fun place to eat when we are in town. However this time our service was so far below par that it ruined the evening for us. Specifically the poor service went from not clearing any appetizer dishes or the unused wine glasses, just piling more items on the table. I had to flag someone down to clear the table. When they were delivering our entree, the tartar sauce was dropped onto my husbands lap. It fell on the napkin, but he never brought replacement tartar sauce or a new napkin. The main course was literally on top of the salads. On top of all this it was so slow. For a meal that was over $200 without drinks, it was very disappointing.
This was a wonderful evening for my family and I! Will definitely be coming back
Lovely as usual. Where we bring friends visiting from out of town. Service was exceptional
Great all around. 2nd time there and it was excellent
Outstanding food and great atmosphere! BONUS!! LIVE COUNTRY SINGER on a Monday night. Interior design and layout was unique and well done. Service was excellent as well. Definitely a “go to” place.
Food is creative, tasty, and pretty. Wait staff is attentive and knowledgeable. Our waiter was, perhaps, too attentive at times.
We wanted to try something new and this pick for us all did the trick!! Our server, Drew, was knowledgeable plus personable. We had the new twist on cheese sticks - which disappeared quickly (3 ladies). We had Funky chicken, tomato basil flatbread, huge Caesar Chipotle salad and finished off with creme brulee- all which were delicioso!! We are already talking about our next visit from Midland to Lubbock and can't wait to come back!
The food was amazing ! And we loved our server and the live music!
THE best part was the cheese fondue and creme brûlée. My salmon was a 7 out of 10. We would go back but order differently. My husband liked his steak. The seafood platter - BEWARE - is entirely fried. It is not clear on menu and would not have been ordered.
Great place to get away and experience a different dining experience from everything else in Lubbock.
We enjoyed our experience, but there were a couple of hiccups this time. First, we were seated at a table with big wingback chairs that were a bit low for the table. The table legs trapped my legs, and I was very uncomfortable. The server graciously reseated us. I think they would do well to get rid of these chairs that I saw at a couple of tables.
The tomato basil soup was the best tomato soup I've ever had. It was buttery, lightly textured, and indescribably delicious. The Crab Stack and Chicken Salad Salad were excellent although they could have eased up on the craisins, which were a little overbearing. I didn't love my wine choice, a Charles Krug merlot sold by the glass, but that's a matter of personal taste. I order merlot only when I want something mellow, and it had a bite that most merlots don't have in my experience.
We went on a Wednesday at 8:15, which I recommend for a quieter experience. There was live music downstairs but not as many people as on the weekend.
Great service! Amazing food!
Great atmosphere, food excellent as always and we had a very attentive server. Will continue to return on a regular basis. Highly recommend.
Wonderful dinner and amazing waiter
Great fun singing along with the live music! Staff was very friendly too! Highly recommend. We are returning to Lubbock in one month and will be booking a table soon!
The food was amazing. The entertainment was absolutely spectacular! Such a hidden gem.
A little loud for my elderly parents, but that was expected on a Friday night. Dinner was delicious and the service was top-notch. This is a definite favorite for us as a family and a tradition for our birthday celebrations.
Great atmosphere and food! Can’t wait to come back!
Just really enjoyed the evening and especially enjoyed having music
Everything was good except the drinks this time. I’m not sure if the bartenders were new or what happened. When drinks are that expensive, they need to be great.
GREAT BIRTHDAY DINNER
Our waiter, Jake, was exceptional. Not only attentive to our table, but knew everything we wanted to know about all of the wines from their selection- which is about 1000 different kinds! Very impressive. The music was fantastic. Overall a wonderful dining experience!
The food was NOT good at all this time around, and I did inform my waiter. Thankfully we had an awesome waiter! They sat us in the back by the kitchen. I was seated 15 min after I made my reservation, even though I arrived 8 min early. Other couples who arrived after me, with the same reservation were seated first. Not cool. We come here a few times a month, so I’m not sure what went wrong this time around.
This was my fiancées and I first time eating here. We did enjoy the food and our server Brandon did an excellent job.
The only thing was I didn't read the menu correct. I ordered the Funky Cristo and I expected everything to be separate, not together in a sandwich.
I wouldn't have minded if the bread was not French toast, and had syrup on it. I'm not big on having syrup on my bacon and sausage.
Also my fiancée ordered mimosas and she loved the first one that had pineapple juice. But she asked for a second one with cranberry juice and they brought her the wrong one.
She still drank and enjoyed it though.
In all, it was a great experience, the food was great, and we will definitely be going back.
Brunch for the first time and it did not disappoint! Food was so good and drinks were even better! Our waiter was fantastic! Music was such a treat! Look forward for going back!
Excellent food. Great wine recommendation. Highly recommended.
Outstanding food and wine. The server was an absolute delight.
