At a time when restaurants are struggling to find and retain good waitstaff in the US following COVID, it was so great to have such great service at Earl's - our server was the perfect combination of attentive & personable, while still giving us time to eat and enjoy our food in peace.

Booked bar seating but were given a very comfortable booth. Wait staff were very effecient. Accomodations for gluen & dairy free meals were well executed. As Tuesday was steak day, we ordered steaks which were tasty and good value. Meals seemed a bit too salty but delicious nonetheless.
Only concern was that the large open area was a bit noisier than we seniors like but it was good to see the restaurant busy & still feel safely distanced.

Everything was super great except the music. Don’t feel it needs to be that loud in a restaurant. Made it feel more like a bar.

The bbq ribs and Cajun chicken were great as usual. The initial wine we ordered was on tap, which we didn’t know, and wasn’t great. Earls gave us a bottle of another wine which was great. Quite noisy there last night.

Due to the noise level in the restaurant it was very difficult to hear the waiter and waitresses particularly since they had masks on.

Quite a few mistakes: drinks mix-up, wrong food order, and our mains arrived at the table before the appetizer! Our server was nice and attentive as soon as the mistakes happened and did her best to correct. The restaurant section was not full but appeared "busy" and noisy. Food was tasting very good.

Took 13 minutes for someone to acknowledge our table (6 people) and that was by asking the manager when he went by. He ended up taking our drink and food order, our drinks came 10 minutes later. Food came out fairly quickly but a couple issues with two of the dishes and my daughters pizza came out 7 minutes after we had all already had our food. Manager took care of the two dishes that were wrong and took down my email address as he was going to email something that stated that the next time we came in dinner and drinks would be on him (personally our bill this night should have just been covered). Couple days since we went and I have not received the email yet.

I ended up finishing my nashville burger but it was lacking any spice and sauce and sadly the fried chicken was quite burnt. My girlfriends food was amazing though. Our server was also awesome!!
