We had some friends come into town who had never been to here. I come often and it was always good but I haven’t been in a few months. EVERYTHING IS DIFFERENT. The servers are very rude and almost prideful for some reason. Our server COULD NOT get any of our orders right to save her life. Even with all the screw ups we didn’t want to go to management because we thought maybe the girl had a bad day, but what ever the case was it was bad enough to make them never want to visit and I will not go back because it was very embarrassing since I suggested such a “great place”
Thank food was good but it's was way too loud for a restaurant. It was even a bit too loud for a bar
Great food, but the restaurant was very noisy. It took several prompts to have them turn down the ambient music, and eventually we opted to move outside so that we could actually hear each other speak.
Great mimosas and all the food is top notch but service is really slow for having tons of wait staff and never being that busy
Fish and chips are awesome here!!
I was disappointed...the restrooms were dirty, they also were out of soap...there were very few healthy or gluten-free options . Service was slow. The place was smaller than I expected. The only thing I would recommend this place for is maybe drinks with your friends.
When you ask the server for a recommendation, Tell them what you have a taste for on the menu, and she says you can make that at home, It changes your experience. Not a good way to impress a first timer. Furthermore if I cared about that then I actually would cook at home. Outdoor seating and tables could be wiped down regularly. Otherwise decent service.
The atmosphere and food are great. THe music is too loud! Otherwise I would recommend for certain!
The food was ok and the place was good. My problem was with the service. We went for brunch and we ordered a bottle for mimosas, and it arrived almost when we were finishing our plates. We didn't have enough time to drink our mimosas in a relaxing environment, due to the fact that the waitress was already bringing the check without giving me a chance to have a few minutes to drink an enjoy the conversation with my husband. Also I wanted to order dessert, but because she brought the check without letting us finish pur brunch, we decided not to.
The food was good. Great rib-eye, and the grilled cheese sandwich my little one had was good. The negative is, that eventhough the restaurant wasn't crowded, the service was mediocre, and slow!...they really need to train the gentleman at the door (hostess) and the waiters!!!
We received great service. Good food and drinks.
Awesome service and excellent food.
My and 10 of my girlfriends made reservations here to celebrate Galentines Day! The service was great and super fast, the food was AMAZING and the atmosphere was super comfortable. Meals and drinks can get a little pricey, but it’s worth the money!
Awesome food/excellent wait staff!
This is my third or fourth time to General Public and it was by far the worst. First, they didn’t have my reservation and had to push two bar top tables together to accommodate my party of 6. There was a huge group that came in right before us but this is why I made a reservation.
The place was poorly managed and didn’t have near enough wait staff for the number of large parties that were there. While our waiter tried his best, it was slow and many mistakes were made.
The food runners brought out one person’s meal super fast but he was done eating before any of the rest of us got food. We later realized (after many entrees being brought to our table that weren’t for us) that the meal brought too early was likely for someone else.
Then when the rest of the food finally came two entrees were incorrect and had to be remade.
The one saving grace was that the food was good.
I never leave negative reviews but this was a ridiculously poor experience.
The food is awesome, it really is. The service is by far the worst experienced in this category. The last three times we’ve g8ne, it’s the same thing. Great food, awesome drinks, horrible service.
Was our large groups 3rd visit for a birthday for 2 of our 14 people....servers and food was great...what ruined half the party’s first experience here was the hostess. She was very upset and irritated about our party of 10 reserved having grown to 14. The restaurant was not busy at all...she complained loudly and made sure we saw her complaining about our large party to customers and other employees.
She continued making gestures and complaining loudly. It made several folks uncomfortable and they wanted to close out early...I told the manager about my issue, she comped my food but the point was to get this horrible hostess away from us with her horrible attitude...she continued making us uncomfortable with taking our empty items away aggressively and complaining to us as other guests came thru and we shuffled to leave as soon as we could and moved half our party to a more welcoming place nearby to continue our celebration in a more festive environment to make up for the awful hostess and her attitude. It’s understandable to hate your job and working when you don’t want to but it’s completely excusable to have someone like this be the First face of your business
We will not return with our large brunch group
Actual menu was limited in choice compared to what’s shown on website.
Service was good
It was suppose to be my birthday celebration (Jan 1). I had a reservation but when we got there the place was packed and folks with reservations were all waiting to be seated. Very poor management on seating. We ended up leaving and celebrated my birthday at Maggiano’s instead... no wait!
We had confirmed reservations for 5 Christmas Day at 5:30pm. Arrived 10 minutes early and they were closed. It was very disappointing and of course impossible to find another place to have dinner on Christmas Day where not much is open and/or booked.
The app showed it was open and in fact it was closed. OpenTable got it wrong
The look of the restaurant was less than desirable. It did not look clean. The tables were dirty and our reserved tables were not set up. We were taken to the outdoor area and expected to wait while they set up our table. The server brought out our checks before asking if we wanted anything else. However the food was actually good.
Shrimp other cauliflower grits was very good. An excellent meal
Second time back to this place. It was better than the 1st time!! Reservation was spot on as well.
The service was very good and the food was ok. Nothing special nothing bad. My husband ordered the fish and chips and the food was hot but the fish was soggy kind of like when it’s microwaved. I ordered crab cakes and they were fine. The music doesn’t match the sports vibe with all the sports TVs and neither match the name. Kind of a confusing vibe.
Great management and gastropub style food. We have had some not so overwhelming experiences here and you can tell they are trying hard to turn it around. The grilled cheese, burger and wings were phenomenal! We will be back!
They were very helpful to reduce music in area we were sitting. Service and food good.
This was our first time at this restaurant and honestly were not expecting anything out of the ordinary. We were all very pleased with the food, the service, the atmosphere.
Love this place, good food. Would tell friends to eat here.
Everything was wonderful. Enjoyed
The water tastes like chemicals. The server was apologetic and offered us a complimentary cheese platter, which was very kind. The food was hot, fresh, and tasted pretty well-made.
Shrimp & grits was really good as well as the bacon burger. Shrimp was very well flavored.
We stopped in for a early dinner… for was excellent… they have a great menu… our waitress was apparently either deaf and or dumb or distracted ....I asked about happy hour and she said they didn't have any happy hour items....there was a sign out front advertising their happy hour ...:)....
The food was excellent……… recommend the crab hushpuppies....A d we will go back but we won't use that waitress...
Great service, food was 10+
Server was interactive with every person in our party
Great food and drinks! we loved the apps especially the crab hushpuppies, oven roasted cauliflower and the shishitos & shrooms. for entrees we ordered the aristocrat burger, fish n chips and green chile grilled cheese. The grilled cheese was our favorite. we will definitely be returning!
I had never been before this visit and I am already looking to go back. The food was so good and creative. I found a place I know I will definitely be recommending to out of towners for sure.
The staff was friendly. Food was presented on point. The atmosphere was relaxed.
Poor staffing - seated, 10 min later no waitstaff. Got up, left - went to Hopdoddys. Will not return.
Went for Sunday Brunch on my sisters birthday. we made a reservation but there was no crowd at 11am when we arrived. Clean, cool (beat the heat) environment and a very pleasant staff. Brunch menu was rather limited but every single item ordered was delicious and met with good reviews by all in our party. The $15 bottle of Champagne for mimosas sealed the deal for a future trip.
I do not usually post anything negative - so this was a real problem. We had 1 pm reservations for a large family group for Father's Day Brunch. They suddenly could not sit the entire party together either - not cool for a large family gathering that was already reserved, and we were still not given tables until approximately 1:45pm and did not even have our food by 2:30pm! Of course, we did sit there for another 30 minutes before anyone even took a food order after multiple requests. I certainly understand being busy or short handed ( maybe plan better for a big weekend like Father's Day), but even the manager was unapologetic for the ridiculous delay (90 minutes later without any food)! My brother tried to speak with him and he offered no real explanation or apology only saying the party ahead of us took too long, but never explained why we waited more than an additional 45 minutes for food after sitting down! The food was pretty good when we finally got it, and the drinks were good and reasonably priced.
The service, and the cocktail was fantastic! The food was a bit disappointing, the flavor was ok, texture was a bit off on the pork chop.
