I've never been treated so dismissively by wait staff as I and my party of 7 were here. It was not a busy night this summer, yet we waited ten minutes for menus and then ANOTHER ten to place our drink orders, given to a bored waitress who did not meet the eye of anyone at the table, nor apologized...

So, to be clear, I didn't eat here. Was delivering product to their back-of-house. While I can't comment on the quality of their food I did want to mention that their kitchen (of which I have seen hundreds) is amongst the cleanest and most organized I have ever seen. In their reefer, all the sauces they use are stickered in-house... More

I guess we should have known better than to take the advice of a guy working at Home Hardware. But he did say the food was really good and that the new chef was amazing and...and...and...we bought in. Maybe the chef only works at night because the lunch was extremely boring. We had a "peameal melt" with side caesar -... More

A late September Friday - Sunny but a bit cool on the patio but we were determined (as were a lot of diners). The specials caught our fancy and the Cabbage Roll Soup was the clear winner over the Chicken on Ciabatta which was huge yes....but the soup was spectacular! We asked for bread with the soup and were given... More

Five of us went to this restaurant because it had an outdoor seating area. That was the only good thing. Food service was extremely slow. Waitress told us our food was coming soon, after we had waited almost an hour and we still waited another ten or more minutes. Plus the food came in dribs and drabs. The special of... More

Came out with a few friends for dinner last night. The restaurant wasn't very busy, but service was lacking. Our waitress brought the menus out and didn't even say a word to us, slid menus down the table and then took drink orders. The margaritas all had wayyy too much salt (not only on the rim, but in the bottom... More

We never even got to eat here - stopped in at 10:15pm with my Mom and daughter for late night snacks after Bingo - even though we were seated in the dining area, away from the bar, we were asked how old my daughter was (she is 18) and were told we could not be served with a person under... More

Had lunch here out in the patio. Found out this restaurant had a previous history as a birthing house, or at least that is what we were told. Service was great but it did seem to take a long time for our meals to arrive from the kitchen. When it did we were not disappointed. Friendly staff. Typical bar type... More

Had never been to the wizmer house bt had heard the food was good and we were not disappointed. I had the crepes and they were delicious. My husband was gluten free and they had gluten free bread for his really good hamburger. Would go there again.
