As a native Batvian I was thrilled that the Batavia Times building would live on. I would like to report that the experience at this restaurant was less than stellar. The concept is good. It should be a great place to meet friends for dinner. There is a lack of attention by the wait staff. The quality of food has... More

We have come multiple times during the summer, and food was excellent. Our trip out this weekend was lackluster to say the least. Our sever, Alice seemed more interested in other things than actually taking care of us. We asked for more bread multiple times before it was brought to the table, just a bad attitude over all. Makes me... More

The food quality has gone way down. Was a huge fan and it just kept getting worse. Also prices went up and portions went down so the value was not even there anymore. This had to get cut from our usual date night. Sorry.

Went with a group of 6 people to have dinner before attending another local event. Upon arrival, were seated promptly. Our waitress brought a basket of hot biscuits, delicious! One guest ordered the prime rib and said it was prepared the way he likes it. Another guest had one of the evening specials, the barbecue platter with brisket, pulled pork,... More

We brought some friends for a nice dinner and it was horrible. The worst meal we ever had in a restaurant. The steak was so tough we couldn't eat it. The ribs were very dry. We did have a very nice and friendly waitress.

We like going out to different places to try all different types of food. Tonight we decided to stick close to home and try a local BBQ place for our Friday night dinner out. What a disappointment ! Our waitress was not interested in actually doing her job. Not only did she never actually bring me the drink I ordered... More

I had the ribs and chicken and both were very good. Not as good as you might get in Kansas City, but really good for western New York! There are a number of sauces on the table and we had fun mixing them and creating the perfect sauce for each cut.
