We had prime rib and seared halibut fillet. They were both excellent. The salt crusted prime was is a little on the salty side but it was very tender even though it did not have fat.

Classic American with Prime Rib as their signature and it was outstanding.Waitstaff was above average and attentive without being obtrusive.Prime rib was served with carrots, broccoli and mashed potatoes. The vegetables were steamed and fresh, potatoes were perfect and the prime rib was perfect. I started with a MIXED GREENS WITH MAPLE VINAIGRETTE salad. Different but very good. No negatives... More

This will be my last review for this restaurant as I will never eat here voluntarily again. This place isn't good. The food is no better than a low-rent chain restaurant and the service is terrible. I never understand how the service is so bad because the restaurant is always empty. Also, if the prices are as high as they... More

Had a company employee appreciation dinner. Food was great. Appetizers were good. Loved the combo appetizer with the coconut shrimp, medallions and crab dip. Added a few calamari's and was great. Food was seasoned well and service was good. Kept glasses full of water/drinks. Little slow on the deserts

We ate at Kincaids for dinner with a large group for business. The staff is well-trained to accommodate lots of people. We were given a more limited menu which allows the restaurant to serve more quickly, but everyone seemed to find what they liked. They have a nice outdoor area for dining as well as several areas indoors to allow... More

Travelling for business my colleagues and I had our eye on Kincaid's for their farm fresh meat. This place was so amazing that we actually ate here two nights in a row! First night the mahi mahi blew my socks off with their guacamole and crabmeat salsa. I didn't think anything could get better until we came back tonight and... More

Kincaid's provides consistently good food and very good service. Our server was prompt and attentive. Without being asked she brought a fresh wine glass for me when I switched from a red to splitting a small carafe of white with my wife. We had Symphony tickets and had no trouble enjoying our meal and getting to the performance on schedule.

Needs to improve on: food, service, ambiance & value. We visited for today (Friday lunch) starting at 11:30am. Does get busy with the lunch rush.

We had a large gathering here for dinner to celebrate my son's graduation. Our server was great and it was a beautiful, relaxing night. We ordered a variety of things from appetizers to drinks and wine before dinner. Dinner was excellent. Afterward, we ordered a few desserts to share. It was the perfect place to celebrate!
