Arrived without reservations and were greeted warmly upon arrival. Sat on the beautiful patio and were attended to quickly by their staff. We ordered the Church Key Burger, the Panko Crusted Grill Cheese and the Chicken Naan-Which. The three of us enjoyed tasting each other's dishes, all of which were of fantastic taste and quality. This was our first visit... More

Be prepared to open up your wallets, but it's well worth it for the Church Key's selection. Delicious food, friendly staff, and a convenient location.

I took a friend (who had not been to the church key) for an early dinner. we met and wanted to have coffee/chat before having dinner and indicated that as we sat down. The place was empty (5pm) other than a few people on the patio. There were more than enough staff chatting at the bar that we should not... More

Down town, great patio, excellent food, great staff. Great bar. Prices are reasonable. Great for large groups (there were ten of us). Nothing to dislike.

We were fortunate the weather cooperated and we could enjoy dinner on the patio. Service was excellent and the food was wonderful. My husband and I each had the duck confit salad....very satisfying and delicious. Our friends had the burger and the salmon. Both reported they were very good. I have to go back for the salmon as it looked... More

I found the menu to be a bit limited because I don't like seafood. However I had the corned beef & sauerkraut - it was definitely very tastey. The service was good. The atmosphere was good. The others I was with liked their meals, but did not think it was anything extra special.

I came here under the mistaken impression that they brewed their own beer -- they don't. No worries, they had plenty to choose from. The food was pretty good. The service was okay; it was much more showy than actually efficient.
