......A respite from many a fine but noisy, overly priced, self important restaurant. Vernon’s Speakeasy was a find! We were desperate to avoid the usual travel venues and are ones to relish good food and excellent service. Even the venue, which is fun, was overshadowed by the food and old fashioned straightforward service. If only we knew we were going to be back in town again soon....

It took a while to get seated and to get the food, but the overall experience was great. The service was great, staff was very friendly and attentive. Food was delicious. Even though wait time was a little long, they made up for it by the rest of the experience.

It was great food and service. I don’t think we ever got the appetizers we ordered and I’m not sure if we paid for them or not at the end of the night but everything else was great.

Made a reservation for my Birthday dinner and I was very impressed! I love the decor and theme, the password entrance is fun. The food was absolutely delicious and we had such a sweet server. Definitely worth the value, we'll be back! The only issue I had is when I got home to eat my leftovers, I realized they threw away my potato(i had only ate a quarter of it) and my sauces for my prime rib :(

The service was great. My child was welcomed although being a more adult venue. The food tasted great. I don’t think the cost of the food was appropriate for what was provided.

We has a great time as always. Service was outstanding. It was early Saturday night, but unfortunately they were out of their specials and some of the main items on the menu. That seemed strange. But most surprising was that later in the evening it came up that all the steak eaters thought the steaks were tough...
So while the dinner had some high spots..appetizers, desert...several of our main courses were below par

We love this place. Our servers was attentive, never an empty glass, never an empty plate left on the table. The food was delicious. I highly recommend the crap cakes. My husband got the filet and my son got prime rib and both were cooked to perfection. My only complaint would be the slightly heavy handed on pepper in the green beans. We will make this an special night out event from now on.

A total immersive experience! Vernon's Speakeasy takes you backwards in time to a completely elegant, yet still fun era. We loved the piano player crooning jazz standards. The service is impeccable, and the food excellent. Creative bar drinks, and an extensive wine list complete the experience.

You are definitely paying for the experience. My husband and I ordered a main dish each, a glass of wine each and a dessert to share. No appetizer, no other cocktails. We payed $170. The steak was good don't get me wrong, but it wan't anything special. Definitely overpriced.

Food was absolutely delicious. The waiter slightly messed up my order and it only took maybe 5 minutes to correct but I still didn't have to pay for the add on price for the side, which was very nice. I would 100% go back.

This was an awesome experience. From the moment Wr stepped to the outside door and knocked until we walked back to our car. The service was perfect. The staff was nice and didn’t continuously bother us like some places. The food was delicious and good drinks. This restaurant is pricey but well worth the experience of going back to the prohibition days. I will come back in the future.

Had a very nice time. The bartender and our waitress were excellent. Bourbon and scotch selections are very good. The speakeasy concept was a lot of fun. The bisque was very good and I'm a bit of picky person. The steak was a nice piece of meat, but I would not recommend the blue cheese on top - it was too much. They should make it a compliment flavor, not the dominant flavor. The mashed potatoes were average. They should be re-heated before plating. Perhaps one last mix of cream or butter to add flavor.

Overall a very nice experience. I would strongly recommend to anyone to try it out.

We have gone there few times always been a great place but this last time the table next to us had little to much to drink which caused them to be loud and after many times if the getting up to use the rest room each dropping their chairs. I am little surpirsed they were not asked to keep it little lower or at least stop serving them drinks. But again this was the only time I have ever seen this because it's a great place to visit. I'll still go back again, we do enjoy it

Great restaurant. The food was delicious. A lot of the appetizers were sold out by the time we got there , 7:30. The lobster bisque was delicious! The Los Ranchos was filled with so much flavor.
The staff was very professional and caring. Very intuitive of what was going on with the customers. Mr. Batters was funny and a great start to dinner.

From the entry, to the service, to the atmosphere, Vernon’s was a great time. The drinks and entrees were outstanding (+ good portion sizes) and they really took the care to make it that way. The only downsides were a lackluster, overly salty salad and a vanilla pudding-esque créme brulee. For what the prices are, I expected far better with these two items. My steak and my wife’s seafood, however, were incredible. Thank you Vernon’s for the surprising relief from average, mundane restaurants.
