Night bartender and waiter great service. Morning staff very courteous, but could not get breakfast orders correct. They need to write orders down, or get more training.

Bartender Joedy Vega is the coolest and nicest person I've ever met on a bar. She is a spirited women who will assist her clients with a friendly attitude and warm smile. She initiated having a conversation and ended up being a meaningful one. She's a cool bartender unlike others.

I stayed at the Barrymore for St. Paddy's weekend, as it was a very short walk to my friend's condo, and was an EXCELLENT value for a holiday weekend! I did a couple of takeout items from the restaurant, and although their menu was not extensive, the food was wonderful and creative - and the choices were great (I am... More

They fixed the bad service. Now there are lots of waiters who all wait on the same tables from what I can see but the food is awful. It's a bar menu at best. Soggy fries, chicken noodle soup that looks like it was made with beef stock. And shell pasta floating on top. Chewy chicken. Sent that back and... More

I usually give a restaurant 2 chances to make an opinion, so after 2 visits to this restaurant (dinner and breakfast), my opinion is the same. The service was slow. For the dinner meal, it took about 15-20 mins to take our orders and then at least 30-45 mins for the entrees. The food was decent but the service was... More

If you're catching a show at the Straz Center just across the street, this is one of few options within walking distance. Especially if you're interested in something from the bar. Only complaints in the past had to do with wait times and spotty service. Happy to report that both have improved. The burger is really good and the version... More

Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed the Happy Hour menu and noticed the things we're doing. As for the Florida craft beers, we may have been awaiting a shipment, as these are pretty much what we mainly keep on tap at Waterworks. However, we can bring this to management's attention to ensure all guests are getting a... More

Since we were staying at the Barrymore we decided to try out the restaurant... Yeah we were not impressed. Breakfast was overpriced and service was terrible. I never got a refill nor was asked if I wanted one. Save your money and eat somewhere else

Breakfast was fine, but nothing overly special. The male waiter was my favorite part of the dining experience!

We had breakfast here the one night we stayed here. There were not many people in the restaurant but the service was TERRIBLE. We had to clean our own table. It took 10 minutes before someone came to our table to offer us drinks and then wanted our order without giving us a menu. They messed up my order after... More

Stayed at Barrymore Hotel so tried to go there for dinner. We were told it was going to be a 15-20 minute wait by two different employees (not sure if either actually would remember us) Didn't ask names Two entrances so didn't know where to wait. Felt very awkward just standing there. Other people were standing around, not sure if... More
