Big Atmosphere, but Tiny portion

I visited this restaurant while catching up with a friend over a late dinner and we were very impressed by how nice the restaurant was inside. It has a very upscale, modern, and moody feel which we loved! We couldn't believe we were only in Waterloo. Our waiter was perfection; an absolute... read more

Very good food and superb service. I've dined at this location on several visits and they never disappoint. The menu has a good variety and the service staff is always wonderful.

Visited for a birthday celebration. Looking forward to a nice dinner and found the food to be very average. Restaurant was only about 1/3 full and the hostess seated is right next to a family with a crying baby. We asked for another table and were moved. Our cheese fondue appetizer was excellent. The main courses, salmon and tenderloin were... More

As a GF dinner I was quite happy when they fulfilled by "just some veggies" inside of bread before my meal. As well they were generous about the size. Main entree of duck was exceptional.

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.
