Food and service were artfully presented and delivered. Loved our server Hannah. Extremely warm and service focused. Definitely would return and even see a theatre performance next time.

People often give me a hard time for ordering mac n' cheese at any restaurant, particularly at more up-scale establishments but I got the last laugh on this one - everyone eyed my plate with envy when our waitress set down the plate of cheesy goodness peppered with thick-cut bacon in front of me. The room disappeared around me when... More

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

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 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.
