My go to spot for dinner with friends.

No place better to meet friends for drinks and dinner:). Love the atmosphere, the food and the films downstairs. Incredible local beers, fascinating cocktails and best fries in town.

We have been loyal supporters of this community restaurant. We love going to dinners and movies in the same venue and know that Zeitgeist is usually busy on Friday nights. The food is generally good, not great, but we like the servers and bartenders who are genial and competent. I made a final reservation for 4. We arrived on time... More

We had cocktails and dinner, then went on to the movies! Fun! Our cocktails were OK, Mint Julep was not stirred when it arrived, and was not served over crushed ice, as it should be, but was tasty and lots of fresh mint. Had the Tuna as an appetizer, which was presented nicely and tasted good, but the tuna itself... More

The chefs know what they're doing, the whiskey selection will please anyone, great location, great private room overlooking the lake, movie theater and playhouse attached. I couldn't love this entire place more than I do! So glad I found it! Thanks trip advisor!!!

This place has a really cool atmosphere and a great location within walking distance of Canal Park. It's actually just off the Lake Walk. The food was awesome. We shared a BLT and it was amazing. I know, how can a BLT be amazing, right? The drinks were fun with unique spins on the traditionals. The prices were reasonable too.

There were very few people (only 2 other tables) in this resturant yet it took forever for someone to get our drinks and take the order. We ordered the cheese plate which was okay. Never offered any additional water nor were we checked on.

We had a delightful dinner with friends. Enjoyed an appetizer of bacon wrapped stuffed dates (one of our favorites) and fries. Dinner included the Thai Pepper Bowl which was extremely flavorful and satisfying! It was delicious! Our other dish was the shrimp pasta which was another winner! Zeitgeist rarely disappoints. Solid, delicious food in a beautiful setting.

We shared the Buffalo burger and it was done like Buffalo should be done. The desserts were the highlight for us.

Zuper vibe and cool interior. Went in Friday afternoon for a couple of drinks and returned later that evening after leaving another sub-par bar. Sat at the bar and had great service both times. The bartender mentioned that this place (including a movie/play theater and adjoining area) are non-profit and support local charities as part of their mission. Food is... More
