    I have worked in food service and appreciate how challenging and stressful circumstances are during COVID-19. While visiting restaurants and bars, I pride myself on being patient, friendly, and empathetic to service staff. My visit to this bar was no exception. I made a reservation for 11/6 to meet friends arriving in town for my wedding and had an abysmally poor experience. I am disappointed and angry at the experience I had despite my high threshold for understanding, particularly given that I notified the bar that this visit was a special occasion when I made our reservation. I was not a diva bride walking in off the street expecting fawning and golden ticket service. I simply expected to be served. Our reservation was meaningless. Very disappointed to have seen a group our same size of all entitled white men without masks (!!!) being served at the bar, but my friends and I (all in masks!!! mixed gender, mixed ethnicities) were barked at by bar staff after politely attempting to order. We were told we could not be served at the bar immediately before and after Brad, Chad, Thad, and Brad were. Confusing, insulting, and infuriating. We waited over an hour for service and STILL had no server come to us until I asked my sister to go complain. In fact, we were not even offered seating despite there being dozens of places we could have safely sat and been served in the hour we were largely ignored. There was seemingly no explanation. We were all baffled. Just astonishing. If any other nearby bars were staying open past 11 (COVID-19 bar curfew), we would have immediately left and given our business to another establishment. Champagne was brought out, seemingly by the GM from downstairs, to apologize. However, no apology was offered. It was far too little, far too late.

    Unfortunately because of Covid (I guess) they’ve set up a makeshift bar in the back. The vibe was more club than cocktail lounge. We were seated waited a minute or 5 and then left. Pretty disappointed, maybe next time.

    It’s fine. The food and drinks are definitely overpriced for the quality and quantity you get. None of it was bad, but none of it was great. The atmosphere is okay. It tries to be trendy while remaining safe, and a winds up somewhere in the “blah” middle. I wouldn’t go again.

    We go out on date night every Wednesday, and we always look to try new places in our town. Bitter’s End did not disappoint!! The cocktails were perfectly crafted, and the FOOD! We got the steak tartare, pimento cheese deviled eggs, crabs and artichoke dip, spicy tuna tartare, and short ribs. I would order every single thing again, especially that steak tartar! This is located on top of the Distil boutique hotel downtown, and it was open and airy and has great music playing. Perfect date night setting. Highly recommend!

    Great vibe! Dining outdoors was so nice- there were fans crating a nice breeze and all tables were well spaced. The drinks and food menu had a great selection. We will definitely be back!
