We eat here somewhat regularly however this time our server was pretty gruff. My friend wanted the chicken and asked if she could have broccoli instead of the potatoes and vegetables. The server said no—-this is what is offered. My friend ended up getting the blackened chicken salad instead. Most restaurants are very happy to make substitutions. It’s not that it wasn’t allowed it was also the way it was said.

Had a great time. Server was excellent as was the food. Were seated in the far back room which was not my first choice but it turned out just fine. Definitely recommended.

Excellent service and great food. Our server was outstanding, especially in her interaction with the kids at our table. Everyone enjoyed their soup and dessert and all but one (me) enjoyed their entrees. SO disappointed that their amazing house-made falafel/black bean veggie burger has been removed from the menu. It was a unique and delicious vegetarian option and its replacement really falls short. Our family will still return as it's a neighborhood favorite but now my vegetarian options are limited to salad.

Overall, Happ Inn is great for what it is: a casual establishment , diversified menu, great service, good prices, great beers and a fun experience. It’s not upscale or haute cuisine, so it doesn’t match up with those places. But it excels in its genre. Soups, salads and sandwiches are what they do best and it’s a good go-to place.

The Happ Inn is a fantastic local eatery and bar. The staff is fantastic and the comfort food is very good. The Bison rib special and the wedge salad with skirt steak were both very good. Extremely happy this joint is near our home. It is now a staple for our family.

Food is always very good. Had chicken tinga tacos and my husband had a burger. Had calamari to start which was great. Try the Sparkling Sunset cocktail - a favorite I cannot get duplicated elsewhere! Our server was super nice, but had a lot of areas to cover. This is not the first time we have experienced slow service here. We asked for drinks which never arrived, then cancelled the order when we had finished our meals. However, we'll keep coming back, the food is that good and value is very good.

Have they changed ownership?
The turkey burger was tasteless. It came out wrong.
They were not that busy & the waiter disappeared.
Always been one of my favorites.
Will go back & try one more time!

Frequent dinners. New Years Eve. Poor menu. No steak offered only fish on special menu and regular menu offered no steak either. Understaffed. Skirt steak very tough for all four at our table. Really surprised at how poor a meal it was.

First time here, just dropped by for lunch. Service was really good. Pulled pork was not super, way too smoky- ate 2 bites. The crispy chicken sandwich was cooked well but pretty plain. It was overpowered by the over-buttered bun. Fries were ok but tasted like plain frozen fries.
