Great brunch with family on Sunday. The first time goers loved the burger and Brussel sprout toast. The grilled cheese with brown sugar bacon was a hit along with the deviled eggs and spicy pickles. Their red sangria may be the best ever had. The place is loud but fun.

Had driven past location several time recently and then checked it on line. Made reservations for wife's birthday as a surprise. The 5 course meal was excellent with additional starter. Everything was well explained and each course had explanation on ingredients and cooking method. While not someplace for an every day meal, for a special occasion it is excellent option. Cost was worth it.

We loved the beer samples that prompted my friend to find a delicious beer for dinner. The wings and pizza happy hour specials were excellent as usual. Excellent service!

Service was excellent. French toast was divine (highly recommend it!). Eggs Benedict were disappointing!! They were served with hard boiled centers. Seems odd no one- from cook to server to second server who clearly saw they were over cooked, offered to remake them. We’ve been long-time Savoy diners but probably won’t be back after being served over cooked Eggs Benedict . Boo hoo!
