My boyfriend and I stopped here last Sunday looking for a good Bloody Mary. We had actually wanted to stop at Burger Jones next door but they didn't open until 11, so we tried this place. We were very pleasantly surprised. Nice atmosphere, quiet, very friendly service. The bloody Mary bar was excellent and well stocked with everything from pickles... More

A wonderful spot to have a date with my wife or to have the family gather for Mothers Day. There is a very large crowd for Mothers Day each year but the line moves nicely and the brunch items never run out causing a delay by some individual who just can't move on. The outdoor seating is nice, the music... More

I ate at Tryg's for a friend's birthday on a Wednesday evening with a party of ten. I made a reservation, so our table was prepared when we arrived, although it wouldn't have been necessary because of the many empty tables. I ordered the three course meal, which included a choice of a salad, entree, and dessert for $25. Mine... More

I went to Tryg's with a friend to listen to some music and have a few drinks. I had a great time, the atmosphere was nice. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. Overall, my experience at Tryg's was a positive one, and I definitely would come back.

We had a very large group and they seated us promptly. Their Happy Hour on Saturday goes until 7 pm - wow...unheard of. We would definitely come back and hope to sit outside and enjoy another happy hour. They serve popovers with the meal...ours were overdone and crunchy so didn't enjoy them as much as I would usually them, but... More

As we entered, with a reservation, we waited 10 minutes for someone to acknowledge us in the entry. We were the only people there, so I guess they just weren't expecting any customers. Only 5 tables were used during the 2.5 hours we spent there. (We were there to talk.) Since we were spending a lot of time talking, it... More

Absolutely the worst service I've ever had. Not only did they up charge our bill but they took it upon themselves to add a tip to my credit card receipt as if I wouldn't notice... Disgusting!

Tryg's has always been a 'home' restaurant for us. It's not too far down the road, and has a 'home' feel with an inviting (always lit) fireplace and cozy bar. The evening, weekend music is a nice touch occasionally, but generally we just prefer one of the nice half round booths, or the patio. For us, the proximity, the smell,... More

Went to this restaurant with friends. The ambiance is perfect for a a social evening with friends ... the seating is comfortable ... the acoustics keep patron chatter to a minimum ... and the wait staff is attentive without being pushy. The menu offers plenty of variety, with several interesting twists on traditional restaurant staples. My only issue is that... More
