We had a good time playing djbingo, this was our first time and will more than likely go again.
Mostly fine and drinks, food, and service were pretty good. Our biggest issues were that bar drinks came out very slowly and food came out a little staggered. For example, about 10 mins after all meals were served, our final side dish arrived.
We were there at 10, just as they opened. So we were the first seated. But there was no “warm up” feeling. Service was prompt and friendly. Food was very well prepared and special requests were honored. We will be back!
Found lighting very dark
This popular spot was rocking by the time we arrived for our outdoor reservation. The front desk staff was prompt, courteous, professional and unflappable with all the chaos, phones ringing, people milling about. Our service staff was very professional and friendly and met all our needs (including requesting turning down the outdoor music as we were seated right next to one of the speakers). We loved all of the Fall-inspired spices in our food, from the pork chop to the Scorpion burger, YUM. Good selection of beers. Great people-watching spot outdoors.
Great food and awesome drink choices, and such a great setting
Fish tacos were cold
The food was disappointing. They were out of Octoberfest specials on the 1st of October and several popular menu items and drinks unavailable.
The appetizer we ordered was drenched in sauce like soup snd burgers under seasoned.
Food good, service good, but the restaurant smelled bad. I’d for sure go back if I eat outside.
Great atmosphere, plenty of outdoor seating, excellent drink menu - especially the micro-beer variety, delicious food, friendly, attentive service, and a great all-around experience.
Great place for our girls’ night. Just wish we’d known it was bingo night, as it was a tad loud for conversation. Otherwise, we’d definitely go again. Burgers and pork chops were delicious and the service was excellent!
It took 10 minutes for a server to come to our table, even though they had several servers just standing around. Many of the workers did not wear masks over their nose.
Great place for drinks and beer. Very modern. Menu is small but very flavorful food and service was phenomenal!
When we arrived they seated the 5 of us right next to the doors that lead to the patio that were constantly opened & closed. We were a party of 5 between the ages of 72-75 one with a cane one with a walker. At that time the other tables were all empty & could have seated 5. Poor judgment on managements decision to seat us that far from the door we came in from & near doors that were constantly in use being in the high 60’s it was very windy & cool.
Couldn’t ask to move later because they say others at those tables.
Super professional service. Great food and beer
Great place with great food and great environment. We sat outside!
I made a reservation for 6 people on a Tuesday night. I wanted to find a fun place for a business meeting with out of town guests. At no time were we made aware that there is a video bingo with a DJ who walks around the restaurant and harasses guests. We were obviously not there to play bingo but were not exempt from him. It was LOUD! The food was mediocre at best and the waitress was very slow. She barely acknowledged us and after waiting 30 minutes after our plates were cleared, I had to ask for the check. Based on this I would not recommend, I would not book again, and I would not go there for personal dinners.
Overall very good all around.
Waiter did not wear mask correctly and did not check in often enough
Went for a late dinner with my husband. Lots of alcohol choices.
The ahi tuna salad was OK. The warm cookie dessert was delicious.
Love being able to eat outside. Good service. Good beer. Good food
Reserving online and having outdoor seating worked out.
Great food, great service
we ate outside, weather was great. our server was fantastic... I asked for a rec. on a food item and she gave me her honest opinion, so I opted for the bbq pulled chicken salad... it was EXCELLENT!
cityworks has become my new fav place to eat, any time of day!!
the weekend brunch is excellent too!
When we firatvarrivednut too over 20 minutes before we were even acknowledged. That was after I literally flagged someone down. Again I had to get the man's attention as he was going to walk right by us. He apologized and took our drink order. Very nice man. One of the ladies in our party couldn't sit up high so we asked to be seated at a lower table. That took 15 minutes. After that things looked up. But it sure started out rocky
Our server Kyle made us feel comfortable and George the host made us feel welcomed. The food was very good and the service was outstanding
Waitress was wonderful.
Good food and nice space. Duck Nacho's are very good, as are the fried pickles. The Mahi-Mahi tacos were excellent, while the ahi tuna tacos were good, but not as well prepared as the Mahi-Mahi version.
Excellent food and service! Highly recommend the patio seating
Great beer selection and there bacon cheese burger was outstanding.
Been here a couple times and never disappointed. Food has always been great. They have gluten free options as well.
Great choice of beer and love the outdoor seating!
We went for Saturday AM brunch. Food was amazing and worth the price.
It was great, it was our anniversary and couldn’t be a better place to share with friends
Food was ok great ambience
We experienced a time better than expected for a much needed mom night out. 10 moms were greeted with excitement by the host, our orders were taken quickly and regularly by our fantastic server, and the dj was fantastic!
We played music trivia and all of us cannot wait to do it again.
Dani was a terrific waitress. We enjoyed most of the food but the hamburger was served cold. Also the salmon was served on a wood board that was very oily from the food. Looks nice but best to serve it on a plate.
Our waitress (I think her name is Kim), was fantastic! Food was excellent!
Completely understand that staffing levels are a challenge across the industry. Although staffing levels for the Tues PM Music Bingo seemed ramped up. There was constantly a staff member walking by our table. Unfortunately, only 2 times did they stop. Once to take order (after sitting for 15) and once to bring food/bev.
Food was delicious. Would have been lovely to have a refilled beverage or have someone check to see if we needed anything. Finally flagged down a host to bring our bill.
Horrible service waited 45 minutes to get anyone to come for a drink order food horrible too. Stay away!!!
