We went last night to Fluids for the first time and definitely the last time. After sitting down we noticed when we heard young kids that it was a family restaurant, not a night club/bar which we expected. The service was slow, slow, slow. We are thinking we waited over 20 minutes to get our drinks and I was ready... More

Fantastic dish. Good portion size. Not many meals grab you in the taste buds like this one does. I will definitely have it again.

Visited Fluid Bar and Grill with a group of girls from out of town for a Birthday. We had called ahead and asked how late food and drinks were served, we were told last call for both was at 11:45. We arrived fairly late, around 10:30. We started off with their feature drink special Margaritas, they use a margarita machine... More

they have a large patio and nice interior, but for me it is just a bar and grill. The bar food is good so I recommend lunch on the patio on warm sunny days.

We enjoyed a fine meal at Fluid three days ago but when it came time to pay the tab things went sour. A friend had two $10 gift certificates that she was lucky enough to win at her office Christmas party. Apparently when the company purchased the certificates the employee at the restaurant had dated them 2013, for when they... More

Had a family birthday dinner. The service was abrupt and robotic. While it is nice to see that they no longer hire servers simply for being tall blonde and pretty; last night's waiter could use a dash of personality. The restaurant was not overly busy but there were long delays between his visits to our table as well as a... More

We went for brunch at Fluid in between Christmas and New Years, and I was not that impressed with the service or the food.. For starters the server told us there would be a 20 minute extra wait for food.. we told her that was fine, however it ended up taking over an hour to get our food from ordering.... More

We were hoping for a nice brunch to start off the New Year but it anything but. They weren't serving ANY of their smoothies off the breaky menu. Only had two of their three bennies which they ended up not having the biscuits/muffins that they put them on so they offered the gluten free version. The eggs were all way... More

They always have good drink specials on, tasty food and a desirable ambiance. Service however, is lacking majorly. Incredibly slow and frazzled everytime ive experienced it. Not overly friendly or welcoming either.
