Very delicious food. Friendly service. Very cool place. Recommended.

I have had lunch at TBK many times and the menu provides a great number of delicious offerings. Service is friendly and efficient. A part of the small local Charcoal Group chain, TBK is a crowdpleaser. Always recommended.

Stopped in for lunch with family while in Waterloo. Excellent location, clean, varied menu, patio. I had a salad with Chicken which was just right while the remainder of my party enjoyed their dishes. Good beer and wine selection, the service was excellent!

This restaurant is best for groups of young adults with good eyesight and minimal need for normal range conversation. My family and extended family were a group of seven. This was a celebratory dinner after a convocation. Our table was in the right back corner just in front of the kitchen. The lighting there was pretty poor, despite the candles... More

Went here recently with my fiancée and we both enjoyed it. The food tasted excellent and there was a large drink menu. We both enjoyed the atmosphere and would recommend for dates, business, and for friends. The only concern is that it is a bit pricey but I think some will find it worth it.

It's sad to say that The Bauer Kitchen is nothing to boast about. I've been there 3 times so far and every time I've been, I have never been amazed by the food. This place has amazing service and accommodations but the food is lacking. I will not be back soon unless they have something decent to offer.

There is a reason why the Bauer is always busy, the food is consistently excellent. We done dinner and lunch on multiple occasions at the Bauer kitchen and have never had a bad experience. The restaurant also has a children's menu which our kids loved. Some times getting the attention of the hostess to seat you can take longer than... More

I enjoyed eating here, but I felt it might be benficial if there were a few more lower priced items on the menu with a healthier option. Overall it was a pleasant meal and the pizza was excellent.

Two couples for Sunday Brunch. Great casual and quiet atmosphere. Not like the normal Sunday brunch place with loud noises and clinking dishes. Food was very good. I enjoyed my eggs beni and it looked like the TBK omelet was pretty good. Would recommend it for sure

Starting off the wine and whiskey list is extensive. The calamari app was very tasty, but the pulled pork nachos really lacked pork. Much more chip than pork. My Moroccan chicken had just the right about of spice and was very tasty. Others enjoyed the Tuna, as well as steak. Desserts looked interesting as well. Good attentive service makes for... More

Located in an old renovated factory, this place has plenty of atmosphere. They make beautiful pizzas in a wood fired pizza oven. Ive had the rainbow trout special. Their cheese board is amazing. Save room for dessert! The bar is serious about booze! The wait staff are friendly and very attentive. I loved this place so much I went back... More
