Stopped in for lunch on a Sunday but they only serve brunch. The brunch leaned heavily toward breakfast food but also had a couple other things we tried and you should not. Shrimp and grits: yeasty tasting/smelling grits, over cooked shrimp, and ... Brats? Not good. Hot brown: appeared thrown on the plate by someone who did not care about... More

Our party of five included two vegetarians, so we didn't want the all you can eat brunch; fortunately we were able to reserve space in the restaurant and order a la carte. They were entrees for omnivores, vegetarians and vegans, so all were happy. Although it was a busy Easter morning the service was excellent and the food was prepared... More

What began as a total misunderstanding of a reservation made and mistakenly assigned to the restaurant rather than the Annex for the Brunch Buffet was quickly resolved by understanding management. (Note: Reservations for Holiday or Mother's day, etc brunch buffet need to be made with restaurant, not online) Fresh flowers on all tables, immediate water, coffee, mimosas, with the extraordinary...

Before going to Sqwires for the first time, I read a TON of reviews about bad service. Now that I've been there, I definitely see what people are talking about. However, things ended up working out just fine for my friend and me. First off, my friend and I hadn't seen each other in a month and had a lot... More

Sqwires always satisfies! Amazing and delicious "home style food" with an upscale twist. Have been here for business and personal dinners and everyone has always loved the food and ambience!

Had lunch here with a group in this attractive restaurant that is part of an old factory that was converted successfully to multi-use property. Food was better than average, as was service.

Four of ate dinner here on a Wednesday night. We had a hard time getting waited on, placing our order, and getting served our food. An inexperienced waiter. The menu looked intriguing, but, alas, our ribeye steaks were thinly cut and were a tad tough and gristly. They were cooked perfectly (medium rare), however. We were so disappointed, since we...
