Great food. Love the small plates. Steaks are also exceptional. Love the extensive wine list. Only thing missing is an ocean view.

Our server was Colin who is one of the best we've ever had. Conscientious, attention to detail. I wish all servers were like him. I had the whole Flounder sautéed in garlic butter and finished with capers was the best I've ever had. It was served with French green beans and mashed potatoes which I put to good use mopping up the remnants of my garlic butter. My wife had the early dining Shrimp & Grits with a cup of She Crab soup (included) and was very pleased. Excellent meal.

We opted for the Restaurant Week menu and were not disappointed. All courses from the meatball and calamari apps through the steak and mahi mahi main courses and the bread pudding dessert were nicely plated and tasted great. Our server Raven has quite a personality, which only added to the pleasurable evening. We'll be back!

We truly enjoyed our selections from the Early Dining Menu. The Salmon and Braised Short Ribs were both excellent. The wait staff was courteous and attentive and the atmosphere just perfect. We have dined here several times and always enjoy being At Wise Guys.

We decided to try this for our 46th anniversary. The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. I had the meatloaf which was very tender and my husband had the surf & turf which he said was cooked to perfection. They gave us a skillet brownie sundae for dessert for our anniversary which was highly unexpected. If we are ever back in the area we will definitely return.

Wanted a nice, intemate, anniversary meal. Got a noisy, poor food, non-intemate experience. Sauce on the salmon was way too salty, and lemony. Meat sauce on the spagetti was very runny and without taste. Service was mediocre. Not our idea of a nice, intemate, anniversary meal.

We had a great meal at WiseGuys - the food and cocktails were great, and the fried bread pudding was really delish. Service by Morgan was exceptional, even though the room was full. We will definitely go back.

The quality of the food was great. The Beet Salad with the blackened shrimp was full of flavor. The waiter, Tanner, was very accommodating and pleasant. He went out of his way to make sure we were happy with our food and drinks.

We've only been out a handful of times during the pandemic but this was our best time yet. We were definitely removed from other guests,. and everything about the evening was wonderful. Our night out was for Valentine's Day, but felt like we could have had an even bigger celebration there if we had anything else to celebrate!

took my wife there for valentines. We'd been before only sat at the bar. This time we had a nice table in the back. We enjoyed everything about the evening. Great service, drinks, food and an amazing expresso cheesecake for desert.

The food was great. My wife had the haddock and it was a nice portion, tasted great. I had steak and scallops. Steak was cooked perfectly but the scallops were the star of the plate. I even enjoyed the succotash which I have never been a fan of. The espresso cheesecake was out of this world. Great way to end our valentines meal. Amanda , our server, took good care of us.

I’m not sure what hype was about, but I did not enjoy the food at all. It lacked flavor and taste. Our server was very absent and it seemed like the other staff members had to continuously assist us. I was embarrassed that I took my mother there for her birthday.

Was happy with all aspects of the dining experience. Great service. The social distancing could have a bit better. Not creative preparation but all apps and meals were tasty and came hot right from the kitchen. A bit pricey but when you come here you know you will get a good meal.

We were seated in the bar and were told the main dinning room had large parties coming in even though it was mostly empty ... well OK
About the lady 15-30 minutes of our meal and group of dads and a daughters were seated at high tops ending up closer to each of us than we were to each other!!!
No barriers or social distancing at all!
Hosted was nice saying they came in early but really!
Food was great! Hostess said they made a note for us to be seated in the main dinning room in the future . We will see will go back again fir the food and see how the seating goes

I was very disappointed in the lack of social distancing. We were initially put at a table that had less than a 1 foot divider between and another table. They should have installed plexiglass between those sections. Management did move us when requested. The waitress disappeared after we moved tables and was short with us before and after we moved. Food was good but I will not go there again until Covid is gone.
