This was our first time to the tavern. The inside of the restaurant is done up pretty cool there were six of us three of us got the scallops and did not care for them at all very spicy and served on cold squash? +3 scallops for $28 is something I would expect from a little fancier of a restaurant. Will definitely go back and try something different

Had an excellent experience at Devil's Acre! Food and service were perfect. I would like to recognize the hostess who seated us. I wish I remembered her name. She was very friendly and welcoming. Even though we arrived 45 minutes early for our reservation and it was very crowded she was able to move other reservations around and were seated within 5 minutes! She could have easily said sorry you are too early but she went out of her way to get us seated quickly and that was very much appreciated!! The scallops were amazing! We will be back and recommend our friends!

This was our first time on a Sunday night at Devil's acre. Normally we go on Friday or Saturday night. I was so happy to see families with smaller children. This is one of the things I love about it... anyone can find something they like! The food is outstanding!

Appetizers were outstanding we had pretzels bites and deviled eggs. Chicken schnitzel lacked flavor but was moist. Sweet potato fries were really good. When ordering apps I’d advise ordering doubles they are smaller portions and being so good they go fast.

Food is delicious and service is friendly. Good place for a date night or family outing. A little noisy with the bar but that's not a baf thing when you have a noisy 4 year old with you :)

This is probably my sixth or seventh time eating at Devils Acre since it’s opening. The woman handling our reservation kept trying to seat us with other parties that were coming behind us even though we told her our reservation was for a party of 2. We were then seated a small table in the middle of the room and offered a high chair for my child to be strapped to. Due to the location of the table having the child strapped to the high chair would put the baby at high risk of getting knocked over by the waitstaff and/or others trying to get by the table. We asked to be moved to another table and was told it should be fine due to no other reservations at the time. Our food was okay, only complaint was the one sandwich was served cold and well done even though it was ordered to be medium.

Dinner for six on a Saturday night.... Overall we largely enjoyed the food but whoever was running the pass tonight failed in a big way. We were seated promptly and beverages arrived quickly, but then our waitress disappeared while we waited about twenty minutes for appetizers to arrive. Waitstaff forgot one appetizer and brought the wrong dressing for another. The entrees arrived three minutes later. Three of us had burgers and they were prepared well, and my wife really enjoyed her lentil and sweet potato stew. But my potatoes were cold and my brother’s schnitzel and pierogis were burned. The forgotten appetizer came only after we prompted them, and then that arrived cold. So they got us another one and that was cold too, so we told them just to forget it at that point. They comped us a dessert, which was tasty. Total check with tax and tip was $170.

In the end the food was probably worth another visit, but they really will need to up their game for a full recommendation.

Great food! Great atmosphere! We always enjoy eating here. My only comment would be to pay attention to reservations. I wrote in the notes that this reservation was for a birthday, but they didn't do anything for it when we were there.

Food was yummy. Meals came at different times and there was a pretty big wait for one person’s meal without acknowledgement which was a bit of a service miss, but otherwise good meal.

I have to go at least every couple of months for the kibolsa dip. Chicken kale Ceasar was great and Beef on a Weck is always great. Perogies were average at best tonight but overall always a great experience.

I love the food here. We were a party of 8 and one couple asked for their own bill the rest of us split the other. There were a few items on both bills which was a little annoying. I’m sure it was an accident ...... but we will definitely go back.

Although the food and service were good, we couldn’t wait to finish eating to leave because of two things: the noise level was unbearable to the point we had difficulty hearing each other; secondly, the temperature was like a meat locker. Extremely uncomfortable. I would go back for the interesting menu and tasty food but will bring a sweater and go during the week rather than the weekend in the hopes there’s a more pleasant noise level.
