Lived in the neighborhood in the mid 90 d's. Use to go all the time. Cool place, great food and live music. Took my wife Friday nite for my B-day. Very crowded, loud and a lot more tables than before. I had the Baseball Steak-very good- but my wife had the Mahi Mahi special which was served so hot that it burned my mouth when my wife gave me "first taste". You could tell it was microwaved and most likely being defrosted because the center was COLD!. Craps later in the nite. House Cab was disappointing. Just didn't have it together. Maybe bad nite or just maybe bad......not the place the original owners use to have.....just saying... so sad-not everything has to be new and improved!

My husband and I have enjoyed going to The Quiet Woman for special occasions for many years now. It is one of our favorite places. Last night we took our daughter in law for her birthday and it was a lovely experience. We arrived an hour early for a reservation but they were happy to accommodate us and the waitress did a wonderful job in advising us all about the different food items on the menu.

The food and cozy atmosphere was good. I didn't understand the decor. Is it supposed to be "old world"? Those flowery table cloths have got to go. Enjoyed the steak and QW lazy Susan "salad bar". For the price of the entree it wouldn't have hurt them to put a few more than 2 asparagus spears on the plate. I thought the banana rama dessert was good, but nothing great. The employees were welcoming and attentive. Even on a Sunday afternoon the small dining room was noisy making it difficult to hear conversation.

The Quiet Woman has been serving delicious food and drinks for over 50 years and the consistency of food and service remains excellent. We love the salad which comes with a "Lazy Susan" of additional items to customize one's preference. Also, the noise level is low enough to be able to talk with your table mates.

We’ve been wanting to try this place for a long time, and we are so glad we finally did. My husband and son both had steaks, while I enjoyed seafood. Everything was prepared perfectly and tasted delicious. Our waitress was attentive and professional, but let us enjoy each course without rushing us out the door. We will definitely be back.

Our favorite dinner spot. Fantastic staff. Had dinner there 2 nights ago. Jessica handed me my favorite cocktail moments after I walked in and before I could order it. Cheers of CDM. Great food. Entertaining people watching. Never disappoints.

I was really looking forward to enjoying the Quiet Women. I had the ribeye w a bone, well cooked, char taste was good but the steak\meat was blaaa. I ordered dessert , apple crisp..in a 2” bowl, no crust and very very burn my tongue hot.. I think it was over microwaved..but no crust just soggy apples. Service was ok but nothing to rave about... very disappointed.

We had a party of 5 and the waiter added 20% to our tab for the tip. I don't mind tipping 20% but I do mind someone else doing it for me. Shady if you ask me.
Probably won't go back because of that.

It had been awhile since I last dined at The Quiet Woman and I really wanted to go back. I am so happy that I did! I ordered the Short Ribs, it came with the QW salad which was fun to add ingredients to my salad. My Short Ribs were perfect, flavorful and just right. Service was spot on and our server was really engaging. I'll be back soon!
