They were obviously trying when they set this place up. Cute and with craft beer available. But execution is not good at all.
Problems start when ordering (you order at a counter and pick up your food in a window.) Disinterested and somewhat rude teen behind the counter. Out of the soup we wanted (though it was still up on the board behind the counter - erase it...) No bread bowls for the soup, out of those (we were there at 7PM on Saturday - right in the middle of their dinner) Warm soda in the cooler, needed ice. Reasonable prices though, we spent $35 for 3.
While waiting for the food, a trip to the restroom. Dirty. Wet floors. Human waste smeared on the wall. Yes, unfortunately I am not kidding. It is disgusting and I am uploading 2 photos to prove it. Inexcusable. Dirty restrooms usually mean a dirty kitchen. YUCK.
Back to the food. Pizza is made on pre-fab crusts, like a boboli. Are you kidding me? Took about 2 minutes from the time I ordered until it was ready. BLT sandwich was on nice bread but made with microwave bacon. Soup was good, but they had of course run out of what we wanted and didn't have the bread bowls.
So basically, I couldn't believe that this was the #1 restaurant in Birch Run on yelp, but it is. Should have looked at trip advisor first!
I say stay away, and I can't imagine what the other reviewers like about this place.
