Celebrating Hubby's Birthday w/friends!

Always enjoy our food, drinks at Adler's--whether it with friends or just the 2 of us or ? And again, we felt well-served by the Bar and Wait staff--even have celebrated New Year's Eve at Adlers....

I like R. P. Adler's a lot but usually go for lunch. Decided to go on a Friday night and was surprised by a long wait for a table. But you know, I ended up not minding the wait: it was a happy crowd and I was impressed by the staff's continued good humor despite the press of business. Once... More

Looks inviting from the outside. The bar music was way too loud. The bartender seemed too busy chatting to make drinks and seemed annoyed at having to actually work. The food was ok. I won't go back...disappointed.

This place was close to our hotel and looked good from the outside. The ratings are very high on TA so we decided to give it a shot.

Love Love Love the fish fries here - both cod and lake perch! Excellent side choices, too. Our server was very attentive, prompt, and friendly - would really like to come back to her table area soon.

When we had finished our food she came over and asked if we wanted checks together or separate ( there were 3 of us we... More

My wife and I had a great lunch. She had the fish tacos and I had a barbecue chicken pizza. Both were delicious. Our server was average at best. Nothing wrong in particular, just appeared to not want to be there.
