Amazing as always. Possibly the best Earls I’ve been too. The food is always above and beyond what I expect and the staff are thorough and extremely friendly!

The service that we received was quite horrible in my opinion. It took more than 10 minutes for someone to come over and greet us after we had been seated. The service was super slow, the server seemed to be uninterested.

Excellent service. Food is great. Our food server was very professional and pleasant to talk with an excellent knowledge of the menu. He helped us chose which appetizer to order that will coordinate with our main entree. The restaurant is so clean and classy.

The ribs and warmed potato salad was amazing, coleslaw ok. Hot wings overpriced for the amount. Ambience a bit stark and dark for my liking. Server was great but too busy so service not as prompt as could have been.

The service was poor. From the time I was seated to the arrival of my drink took over 1/2 hour. The food was decent but not great. The noise level of other patrons was excessive.

I ordered a pizza and it was thinner than usual. But the staff made an apology for that and explained what was happened. We got another pizza later and satisfied with her responding.
I was very happy with the service by staff.

Earls is doing very well - felt safe - even when a young person was standing and cheating with another table the waiter told him he could not do this and had to return to his table - they are vigilant ! Good experience overall !

The waitress was super friendly! Don't recall her name, but she was very polite and trying to keep the physical interaction to a minimum.
The food was as usual.
What I found outstanding was the payment system. We used the Ready Pay, and it was just the best system ever! So easy, so user friendly.

Food was great but the restaurant was fairly empty due to social distancing rules. The ambience fell a little flat because of this.

Our waitress was so sweet and very attentive/personal when serving our group. It’s nice to be served by someone who you can feel like you can genuinely talk too. She made our experience really lovely. She ended our meal by bringing us a cake to share, which was so nice of her. I forget her name but she’s a perfect example of how you should be waited on!

I ordered a bacon cheese burger with fries. The burger was a little too salty for my taste. The fries were perfect though.

Changing the CLASSIC Cajun Chicken Cheddar sandwich would, in my opinion, be a mistake. Though the last couple of times I’ve ordered it (from different locations) I’ve noticed a change in your Ciabatta quality. It’s been quite dry and cold. The sandwich used to be much better.
Also, during a very emotionally charged time, with the Black Lives Matter and Indigenous Rights movements, to have the “whitest” and most “redneck” sport I’ve ever seen (chopping and sawing logs, without ONE POC anywhere) on your tv screens was off putting. Perhaps make sure your restaurants are being racially sensitive.

My boyfriend got very sick from the food. We believe it was either the crab sushi or from the tap wine. We sent our first glasses of wine back because there was a lot of sediment, and our next glasses did as well. It makes me wonder if the lines had not been cleaned during COVID and the wine barrels had expired. Thanks

This reservation was for the after wedding reception - because of everything that has gone on - with the social distancing. This was the first opportunity to have the people we wanted to join us - Earls did a fantastic job with the current restrictions - the two servers were absolutely great! You made our party that much more enjoyable.

Thank you

We made a booking and was seated at a table right in front of the take-out door, which was fully open. We were going to ask to change tables, however, after 15 minutes of us sitting there not being able to take our coats off due to the cold wind and no sign of any servers we decided to leave, so I cannot comment on the food etc, only the service. Or should I say complete absence of service.

The menu at the restaurant did not match the menu on here. We went for the Brunch Happy Hour at 11:30am because on here it showed it going until noon, but at the restaurant it actually ended at 11. Some menu items on here were also missing on their menu and they weren't able to make it when we requested them. Good food, service, and atmosphere, but wish they would have honored the pricing (and items if ingredients allowed) that were shown on here.

Really bad meal (we both, my husband and I, ordered the steaks, there where very stiff, to stiff to chew).
Then, After ordering the desserts we were waiting for it about 30 minutes.

And music. May be it’s nice for a pab, but not for the dinner in a restaurant, I had a headache.
Don’t want to come back.

My server wasn’t the most joyous to help us. I work in the service industry and I just felt like I would not allow my staff with help/serve customers like that. She didn’t smile and didn’t look like she wanted to be there which makes me regret eating there. Definitely would not be coming back to that location for a while.
