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

Meh, I’ve had better. Was there on a Sunday for their brunch which I have heard people rave about. Well, was I there on a bad Sunday? It was not as spectacular as it was hyped up to be. First let’s start with attitude. The two older waitresses did not come across as friendly at all. The one with dark... More

We had a groupon and hungry and close by . . . SO GLAD we stopped! Onion rings were GREAT. So was the filet mignon! Husband had the open face turkey sandwich and it rocked as well! Nice atmosphere. We will be going back!

I bought a groupon for this restaurant before I read a number of reviews that were not that complimentary. Had I seen the reviews I wouldn't have bought the groupon. I am glad we went to Sarna's. It isn't especially fancy but it is a nice place. We both ordered porterhouse steaks that were made exactly as we ordered and... More

We went today for Saturday bingo. It is similar to a Champp's; burgers, sandwiches, etc. I think the food is better both in taste and quality. We shared the fish and chips. Nice batter, the JoJo fries are always a must! For 6 beers and our food, it was only $38! Pretty good deal. The waitress we always have is... More

I dine at Sarna's for business lunches at least once per month. It's a very nice sports bar - great menu and great prices for lunch. We have always had good service - they turn you around pretty quick there so it's a great place for a quick lunch.

I would not recommend this place, for the 90$ tab my food was not the quality. The service was horrible. Ni management in sight. I may as well went to seven steak house an paid pretty much the same money, but way better food!! I will never return to this place!!
