Excellent service but the food not so good !!

DO NOT order the Santa Fe salad one of the worst salad I ever had in a restaurant! Almost ended up at the clinic ... The salad was wilted and tasted funny... not even sure the chicken was good/fresh !

Had a good lunch at 3B. Bacon cheeseburger with Mac n cheese was quite tasty but a bit dry. Service terribly slow despite 45 minute lunch guarantee.

Great service. Beer is tasty - lots of selection and sizes (which is nice) We both had the burgers but they were under seasoned. Too bad - handmade patty, bun was a good choice, and fries were hot. Please season your burgers, it's important.

Very noisy environment. Hard to hold a conversation without people repeating themselves. The server had too many tables to attend too. Waited about 10 minutes before we were acknowledged. The bruschetta in the jar was too cold it should be at least room temperature. The pulled pork quesadilla was very good.

Food was excellent, prices were fair. We were a group of 5 women on a departmental outing from work. Our server was inattentive to our table; we had shown her our receipt for our Escape Room for that day and asked about the 15% discount advertised. She informed me that it would be applied to our order.

As we had another outing, we were unable to order another round of drinks before heading out as our server was nowhere to be seen. This was often the case. When she did come by, we asked for the bill which she brought over. I realized the discount was not applied, but didn't want to risk being late for our next outing and paid the bill.

We did arrive during the lunch rush, so the business was understandable. However, we stayed much later after the lunch rush when the establishment was virtually empty compared to how it was moments prior. This did not have any impact on our server and the attentiveness our table received.

We will all likely return again as the food was great and there was a nice selection of cocktails and mixed drinks. It is also walking distance to our place of employment, which is a huge plus.

Staff are always excellent. We were are large group meeting up after work. It was very busy but you didn’t feel like the server was rushed. It’s very clean. Food was excellent. I really appreciate that they allow for online reservations for groups of 10. It definitely makes choosing a place to go easy:)

We were seated promptly and a server was with us quickly thereafter. We were also served our beverages and food on a timely basis. Our server did not bother us about second drinks, but did pay attention to when our glasses were empty to inquire if we wanted more. All in all a pleasant experience.

Noisy, Noisy, Noisy- this place is really noisy. It was difficult to have a conversation with someone sitting beside you and impossible with someone across the table. We moved to the patio which was much better.

Lovely evening. A bit noisy as we were in the middle of the restaurant. I would love if your onion dip was available as an appetizer for dinner. It is the best!!

I like this place; it is always good to be back. Unfortunately the quality of food and beer keeps going down in the last couple of years. This was the second time in a row when my medium-rare steak was actually medium-well-done and it was actually a very thin piece of meat. The waitress didn't even ask at the end if the food was good...

Despite that I had a reservation and they knew about the busy long weekend And the additional tourists and people attending the busker festival, I was told that the kitchen was « closed » for at least one hour while they caught up with food orders. Hardly greeted at the door- staff seemed flustered. No way to welcome tourists.
End of the day, ended up finding another place to eat.

Outdoor seating was great with the nice weather. Our server was great, but that was after we waited outside in line to get seated after standing inside for over 30 minutes even with a reservation. They were so behind and disorganized no one even had time to check us in or tell us it would be. What’s the point of making a reservation at all?
