Good Food, Good Service

Wildflower turned out to be much better than we expected. The food is creative and well prepared. The wait staff is delightful. Without a doubt we would stop in again.

We had lunch here one day, then dinner the following night. Both meals were great! Shared the special, scallops over angel hair, and a caesar salad - more than enough food for 2. Drinks were also very good and they have an interesting drink menu. Cute, casual ambiance. Definitely recommend.

We had to eat in a rush since we had to get back to the racetrack. Super accommodating service! Fast and very nice waiter. Special thanks to the chef and helpers behind the scenes. We ordered burgers and fries and were surprised how great everything tasted. Down side was the price....fries were $12!

Better than average selection of pub grub. Burger was great as well as the chicken sandwich. I don't drink beer, but my husband enjoyed his. Very friendly and helpful server.

Nothing to dislike! Food was very good and the beer very very good. Love going to place where you do not expect the food to be outstanding and the service excellent.

We stayed at a local B&B (The Ginger Cat) and the owner recommended The Crooked Rooster for their Vegan Tacos. I had the tacos and a Hefeweizen beer and I loved both! My girlfriend had the SW Wrap and she also liked it. The restaurant's atmosphere and service were great, so we came the next day again ;) This place... More

Service was a problem. Not very friendly. The burger I ordered medium arrived well done and not unlike a burger king patty. The beer was good and made up for the poor service and food. My girlfriend's salad lacked fresh vegetables and was left half eaten. Disappointed and would look elsewhere next time we are in this town.
