    Our server Isabelle was outstanding - could not have been more attentive. We just flew home from Florida and were exhausted. The traffic in the tunnel was horrendous so to have someone cater to our every need was WONDERFUL. You are very lucky to have an employee as kind as her.

    Had deep dish version of margarita pizza. Both my husband and I are from the Chicago area and we thought the pizza was quite good. We were pleasantly surprised and will definitely go back.

    The service was so bad it was bizarre and it was really expensive for what it was (note the hidden 4% fee they tack on)… we were there for almost three hours and only had entrees, they forgot appetizers, brought everything out at once, didn’t check in for drinks… our waiter was very nice but overall it was just terrible

    Ordered the chicken and waffles. Essentially a bunch of fried chicken tenders on top of waffles with a berry jam on top. I enjoyed the waffles more than the tenders. Wife and daughter ordered the breakfast sammies, which were tasty, but the bread was a bit thick and the bacon soggy. Nice ambience and the waitstaff were attentive and friendly. Wouldn't mind coming back for a dinner and drinks, but the brunch was fairly average.

    Food was good overall. Service was terrible. Took forever to get food or drinks. The sever forgot to put in one of our appetizers for half the table. One meal was not put for one of people. They gave a round of shots to the group that were on the bill...we then had to speak to the Manager to get this removed. Too bad because it seems like a cool place overall and a good drink selection.

    As context, I usually opt for restaurants with less focus on beer, appetizers, and happy hours, as I prefer thoughtfully-prepared food that allows for customization. That said, went with a group and was delighted I did. The salmon (requested plain with just olive oil and salt and pepper) was fantastic and perfectly cooked. And my server (shame on me for not getting their name) was warm, present, and responsive. It was one of the best restaurant experiences I've had in a while. Thanks, Worden Hall.

    Very high prices for bar food. The philly cheesesteak meat was extremely dry, and you’d think a $22 burger would have some redeeming feature, but nope. Won’t be returning.

    The service was good and all the staff was friendly. It’s a nice spot and the atmosphere is very nice! For those reasons I expected more out of the food. It wasn’t horribly overpriced but I just honestly did not enjoy the food. The chicken strips weren’t bad, but the pizza just tasted like frozen crust with cheap toppings. The menu is pretty small too. The drinks were also pretty bad. No blame on the bartender it just tasted like the soda water was strongly chlorinated so it tasted like a sip of tequila straight from the pool.

    While my friends and I were pleased overall with the food, it was disappointing to one of us that the wait staff didn't know before our ordering that 2 of the red wines were not available. It would be great for all parties involved if '86'd' items were known well in advance so that disappointment can be kept at a minimum.

    Had a great meal here with friends to celebrate my husbands birthday. Our server, Zander, was amazing. Super friendly, accommodating and on top of things. Drinks were great and they have an awesome beer list. Food was delicious- especially pretzel, baked Mac and cheese, and whipped feta special. Plus love that you can actually have a conversation while you dine here!

    Was excited for the whiskey given they have over 100 whiskeys but they did not have a whiskey menu, would be helpful if they had one. Also it would be nice if they had waitstaff who would be able to help you with the whiskey selection.

    Thought this was a nice experience. Our server herself was excellent. However entrees we’re delivered about five minutes after appetizers. We had barely started the appetizers. Someone should tell the kitchen staff not to bring entrees until appetizers are done!

    Our server was brand new and did not appear to have any previous serving experience. Instead of being paired up with someone for training, he worked directly with us. He would take the groups order but miss half the table whether it was for drinks or food. Everything was very slow to come out. The manager ended up comping the apps and last round of drinks.

    Food was great but the service was terrible. Took a half hour to get water, let alone actually ordering drinks. Server was visibly upset when we didn't order MORE food. When asked a question about the food the server responded, "Oh, was it not up to your standards?" Yeah, not going back here

    Our table was ready. Pizza was delicious. Server was pretty much adequate. She did not return after someone else brought our pizza. We had to go ask for Parmesan cheese. She finally came back and we had a chat about where she was from and she was pleasant. Noise level too high for us but we did enjoy our meal.
