Consistently great food, awesome service. Never too busy. The ambiance is classy but casual - perfect for brunch with the squad or a date night with bae.

I don't know if this was a one time thing but I would not recommend The Knick to anyone. The service really was horrible, we weren't asked if we wanted drinks, they never asked how I wanted a steak cooked, my waitress didn't even know the specials, and they gave us two separate waitresses at the beginning of our meal. This all going wrong and the inside being quite crowded during Covid-19 ruined our whole experience and I don't believe I'll be returning back any time soon.

The service was excellent. It’s a really fun place. I would rate the food as “good.” Not great but a decent meal at a reasonable price.

It’s always fun to visit The Knick. Great place, respectable social distancing. A great place to visit during the pandemic for a much needed night out. I felt completely safe.

A great experience, seated outdoors on the covered patio, with heaters. We shared the brussel sprout appetizer, seared scallop salad and truffle burger. All were delicious! Service was great, too.

in spite of a pandemic an outside table, great food and terrific service. It didn’t seem that a reservation helped with seating and somewhat chaotic.

Stopped for Sunday Brunch and outside patio was full. Indoors was nice, too! Busy, and our waitress had tables both inside and out, and seemed a bit overwhelmed. Menu, cocktails, etc. were inventive and delicious!

They don’t care about earning your business. Too bad. Service is unfriendly. They sure don’t seem to want to be there.

As always food and service was great. Took a friend which was her first and definitely not her last time there. Shared pancakes and French toast and crispy bacon. Only complaint was that the servings are so big which does not leave any room for dessert.

Sat outside and had a nice dinner on the patio. They have changed their menu a little but we were pleased with our choices. The soup was very good and service was attentive. I tried the grilled Romaine scallop salad. I would ask for dressing on the side- it was served with a little too much.

The food was great, and our server was phenomenal. She made accomidations that made our meals perfect. However other employees were not as considerate or as plesant as our server. We have been here a few times, and each time we have had to split our party due to their COVID-19 reguations. We get that, but just ask to have the tables close to one another. We also asked via the Open Table app for outdoor seating. However, The Knick management kept saying that they don't guarantee outdoor seating. We had people in our party that do not want to eat indoor until the COVIDthreat has subsided. They need to either accomidate their custoer's request, or not offer that service.

Went to The Knick for an early Sunday brunch first thing in the morning. Patio seating was open and well distanced. Server was attentive and the food was very good. This is a good spot to enjoy the lake breezes without being in the sun.
