Unbelievably rude staff, especially the hostesses. Way too many cool places in Fort Collins to put up with garbage like that. Skip this place.

Our family stopped here when we were in Fort Collins briefly and it was just what we all needed - we were seated outdoors - they have so many individual places for people to sit in -groups but not close to other groups so it...might present problems for a larger group than 10 or so people. I had a cherry float and I haven't had one in probably 15 years so it was all I could have asked for. Others had sodas or other drinks of their choices. It is a very special place. Our service was good.More

When this popped up in FoCo after hitting a few breweries I was shocked. It seemed very out of place for the area. The drink and food menu is extensive and unique. Everything that we ordered was excellent. If the servers and hosts get trained...to have some personality this would be a can't miss.More

Food was good but the service was terrible. Seems like poor management and lack of staff. Saw our waiter to take our order and that is all, hope he’s alive somewhere.

Visited this restaurant Sunday June 8th. Table outside for 4, nice setup. Food was cold, Chicago Style Hotdogs, not even close to what they are in Chicago, string fires were cold, same table ordered Cubano, and Sweet Potato Fries were cold and Cubano dry. New...Chef? need more emphasis on food than cute drinks.More

Yes March in the patio. Had the chicken pot pie and caesar salad. Great salad. Just ok pot pie... I mean lots of gravy, lots of biscuit, only a couple small pieces of chicken. So really it should be called a gravy with a biscuit....Average carrot cake and ice cream Sunday. The chocolate was hardened on the Sunday and the carrot cake did not taste like carrots. Great sitting out on the patio in March for Colorado!More

Definitely an interesting take on a donut. It was more a cross between a mini bagel you would find in the freezer section of the grocery store and a donut. Which is not a bad thing. Griddled up like a bagel and had a cream...cheese spread. The peanut butter jelly one was delicious. Berry compote was excellent. Great atmosphere inside and out.More

Some of the best comfort food I've ever found in Fort Collins. I love the Monte Christo Sandwich and the Coney Chili and Cheese String Fries and another of my favorites. Union has a very relaxing Vibe and is a great place for a date...or a gathering with friends.More

Overall, I'd rate this place just average. There is plenty of seating as the restaurant is spacious. Nevertheless, the acoustics could be better as it was difficult to hear the conversation at our table. Food was good, but not outstanding. In a town with so...many restaurants, you could find several that are better. That being said, I would give this restaurant another chance.More

Had a nice business lunch with a colleague today. Special of tacos for each of us both with Arnold Palmers totaled about 30 bucks incl tip. Tasty food and attentive service. wasn’t very busy at 1 pm so food was quick. The patio is a...great spot for hanging out too, with a place to toss bean bags, and patio furniture too.More
