Went for lunch. Had chicken and dumplings special. It was good full of flavor. Had rice pudding for dessert. Tasty but very watery. Wait staff was slow. Seemed to be compliant with COVID-19 restrictions.More

Worst dinner ever had there. Got seated in bar. Waitress came to get drink orders and bought them. 20 minutes later finally came for order took order asked if we wanted rolls said yes. 20 minutes later got soup no rolls they came after we...had eaten soup and was told dinner would be right out. Another good 20 minutes dinner, rubber chicken burnt bacon. Could not eat it. Went for waitress and Bill and left never to return. Almost 2 hours for a crappie over priced meal.More

We love to go to Baker's. Their specials are always delicious, and the service is great! Don't miss the Crabby Mac and Cheese. The brisket is wonderful, and we will go back again and again.

We stopped here the first time because we were hungry, and it was convenient. Now we stop each time we're in the area. The food is consistently good - not always great, but always good and sometimes exceptional. They can take a bland ingredient, like...green beans , and make them utterly delicious. And the desserts? So yummy! Appreciate the creative seasonal menu and that many entrees have a smaller size. But service can be iffy, as it was this last visit. We were seated promptly, then waited 10 minutes for a server to come to the table and take our order. Took forever for two simple fountain drinks. One was so over-full that when she set it down it sloshed over badly; she just walked away. We wiped the spill, which left us no napkins. When she brought our entrees she said I'll be back with more napkins. No napkins, no server even though she walked by us, even when we were visibly trying to get her attention. There were only three other tables in our section, and another server had at least one of them. We weren't in a hurry, but we would have preferred to linger because we wanted to, not because the server was AOL. Luckily the food that night was scrumptious. Give it a try if you're in the area. The food is worth your time.More

The waitress forgot our rolls ...forgot our soup..never asked if we wanted refills. .we had to wait a very long time. The food was meh. Server asked if we wanted dessert. We said we'd look at the menu. She passed us twice waiting on other...tables. She could have given us a dessert menu. Finally we told her to skip it. She gave us our check. Again we had to wait a long time before she even came by. There is a level of expectancy that customers should be given...this wasn't it!!More

Beyond disappointing. Restaurant smelled noticeably musty upon entering at 11:30 am Sunday, August 18. Our waitress seemed preoccupied with setting up for an upcoming party of 35, due to arrive at 12:30 acording to her. We ordered the BIG hamburger and the crab cake sandwich...- both served with "hand-cut french fries". The burger was big alright, but it was so overcooked I thought about giving it to a local ice hockey team in need of pucks. The crab cake sandwich was tasteless and the crab meat was not fresh. Both sandwiches were lukewarm at best. As for the fries, they were dark brown and cold. Obviously cooked and then reheated in the fryer. Some were even black. It's hard to imagine what the food and service would be like if we tried it when the place was busy. In this case we were THE FIRST CUSTOMERS OF THE DAY!!!! One and Done...horribleMore
