I wanted to try a new restaurant not the same ones we do every almost every week. Sarna's in Columbia Heights is a nice change but still has average american food. My husband got New York Strip Steak dinner (He said it was good to average good tasting not impressive but good. I got their Mushroom Chicken sandwich. It was... More

We consider ourselves to be very fortunate to have Sarna's in our neighborhood. Although we do not eat at Sarna's on a regular basis, my wife and I have on many occasions been grateful that Sarna's is in the neighborhood when it comes to making dinner plans for those unexpected guests who drop in on short notice. We have found... More

The food was okay, the service was good, the waitress was outstanding, but when we left the hostess didn't seem to care, there must have been something interesting happening behind the stand because she didn't even look up when we said goodnight to her.

Reservations for 5 at 5---this is a Bar & Grill Saturday evening busy and chatty time with a large menu... Building appears almost new inside and out---Seated almost immediately---drinks ordered--- Of items all ordered, the stand-out items were the Pecan Walleye( hefty fillet) accompanied with Garlic Redskin mashed potatoes and sautéed summer squashes....Nicely plated and excellent quality for Walleye...Babyback Ribs...

A group of former (retired and otherwise no longer there) and current employees of the company form which I retired met for dinner at Sarna's Classic Grill. It is a large grill and bar type establishment with lots of space for large groups. We were able to be off by ourselves s o we could reminisce about the good and... More

The food, for the most part, is good. There are, however, some bartenders and servers that are far from courteous and friendly. I live near there and have been many times since they opened, now only because it is convenient.

We went to Sarna's because I had bought a Groupon and we will definitely go back. It is similar to a Champ's, but a little more upscale - roomier inside with a lovely patio with pond and waterfall. Since the Groupon had to be used all at once, our waitress recommended that we go for the highest price items which... More

The staff was able to seat out large party of 12 on the outdoor patio in a very reasonable amount of time. Although I did not order food, the people who did at our table were very satisfied. My only complaint was that although it was "craft beer night", my favorite local craft beer (which I ordered, was not included... More

I had Sunday brunch last week at Sarna's. It was not worth the $17! There's one pre-made Caesar salad with (for my taste) too much dressing, and some jello concoction (I didn't try it) that reminded me of the junk people brought to church basement lunches in the 60's. The 2 shining stars on the table were the bacon &... More

We recently went there on a Sunday around noon at which time brunch was still going on. I ordered pasta from the limited lunch menu and it was a very large portion for a great value. It tasted wonderfully and I wouldn't have anything to complain about. My boyfriend went for the brunch for $17 which is worth the money... More
