first time to this place and was surprised how crowded it was for a Wednesday night. Our table was pushed close to 2 other tables so there wasn't enough room to walk between the table and the aisle. People were walking by and pushing into the chairs. Food was good. I'll definitely try it again.

Enjoyed dinner at Painters before the show at Gateway Playhouse. Painters has a good variety of menu choices and a large menu of drafts. Everyone liked their dinners and we will be going back to Painters again.

Got there at 5:45 pm , plenty of time before we had to leave for a play at Gateway. Don’t know if it is because they are short on wait staff but for being only 2 people we had to wait a bit for our food and waiter did have a large table to take care of but at the end we had to rush out of there at 7:35 to get to the play. We waited for our waiter to even come over to our table…. Just to get the check too a while. Again it may have been due to lack of staff but I was very disappointed!!!!!! I had a personal pizza and I enjoyed it but I’m not sure how soon I’ll be going back…

All of the food was over salted one order was inedible. This is a place for drinkers and younger people not good for seniors.

Food and Service were good. Had a 7:30 reservation for dinner and was sat next to the band stage. The environment was loud and directed towards young adults, lot of yelling over the tables. At around 8:30 pm right as our food was still on the table we’re approached by two workers moving tables and couches into the corner behind us to make room for the music and people to watch the band which I assumed started at 9 or 9:30. We were rudely asked to move out of our seats during our dinner so they could move tables and couches over our table and to the corner. They simply should not have sat us in the corner, or waiting until we were finished to start moving things around. It was done rudely and unapologetic.

We moved and missed Painters. Tonight was the night to go back :) The food is always excellent! The mood makes you feel like your in the city at an eclectic club/eatery. We got the lobster baked clams, crab cakes, steak sandwich, and the mango, spinach, pecan salad with goat cheese! It was perfect! I am always nervous ordering a salad already made because it can usually is drowning in dressing which I hate. This was perfect; tasty but not dry. We will be back!

Great bar/restaurant atmosphere, a little loud. Food is above average for a bar but the price is well above average for a bar. What bothers me is they are charging above and beyond a 3 percent fee if using a credit card, explaination was this is what it is since covid and honestly thats happening across the board in all businesses, very discerning. Service was prompt and friendly. All in all worth a try, if bar hopping the bar is definitely worth the try. Enjoy!

Went there for brunch and had the Mediterranean omelet w/homefries. It was so filling I couldn't finish the entire thing! I would definitely go back again.

Unbelievably loud, we could not hear anyone at our table, the waiter couldn’t hear us and we couldn’t hear him. The quality of the food was fair, I ordered chicken and rice and the chicken was very dry. My husband ordered a burger and it was very dry. Would not go back

Place was packed on a Friday night. This is our second time coming here and the food was great. Live band at 10pm so it became difficult to have a conversation after that but the music was great. We will definitely come back.

Food was great and came quickly. We felt a little rushed by the waitstaff. They were trying to clear away plates as the last piece of food was put on utensils. We had wanted to sit and chat with our group and before we knew it the bill was placed in front of us. We stayed for the band thst was performing which was a great show.

Drinks were not good. Ordered Kettle one one the rocks with olives. It came on the rocks with a lemon and excessive amount of vermouth. Very overpriced. Normally food is great here however ordered the Thai steak strips that came out like charcoal . They were so burnt on outside I couldn’t eat them. Entertainment was good. Just disappointed with this past dinning experience.

The dragons bowl with chicken was exceptional. Scallop special was also cooked well. The food has great taste and the portions are huge.

We are new to the area and find Porters as a restaurant we will put into our rotation.

Painters is now our go to spot for dinner on our way home from out east. We had heard that the chef of many years had left but seems they didn’t miss a step. Food was still very good & menu looked the same with many diverse choices. Entree sizes are plentiful as were the cocktails. Had a very enjoyable dinner.

I've been to Painters several times before and really enjoyed it. This was my first time for brunch and it was ok. Process were high but I don't mind that if the food is great but the food was so-so. I tried the eggs Benedict but wasn't overly impressed. The service was good but after eating, we felt like we were being rushed out. A staff member they cleaning up my friends plate when she went finished. If like to try brunch again but definitely something else off the menu.

Made reservations for 7:00. We arrived a little early and they sat us right away.
No waiter ever came over to us. After sitting about 20 minutes we asked a nearby waiter if he was our waiter. Nope! He wasn’t but our waiter would be right over. We ordered drinks apps and dinner since we had already been seated over 20 minutes. Drinks took another 10 and the apps (2 apps) came about half an hour later. Food took another half hour and the medium burger was burned. The fried chicken was frozen in the inside. I asked for a replacement chicken and something -like his fries-for the kid to eat while we all ate the food that was served to us. His food came about 15 minutes later after we were all done with our meals.
Lots of apologize from the waiter for making us wait when we first got there to the time between courses and then the frozen chicken.
The chicken was taken off the bill-but the appetizer that they told us they couldn’t make was still on the bull. He had to remove that and gave us a bee bill.
We usually love painters and have frequented there almost monthly since the pandemic. The experience this night was just really bad. 2.5 hours in the restaurant is not normal.

My husband ordered a steak which was to be medium, i came out very very rare moving red, was returned, waitress must have forgotten about him, steak came back so well he could not eat it, she never came back, plus she gave him his side to at eat but then we both had been eating alone. no I am sorry, nothing.. un-exceptable. yet we still ordered desert, drinks and coffee still nothing, also I hate when you had not even put your folk down and your staff is trying to grab your plates etc from you, I get you are busy, but hate being rushed, un professional service.

Everything was outstanding but the room we were in was way too cold. A few people asked that the a/c be turned on. We had to wear sweaters. But everything else was amazing. Our waiter Justin was great.
