“Good, but not great”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

I always look forward to a trip back to Hell's Kitchen.Always for breakfast. Almost always for lemon ricotta pancakes. The service was good, but the waitress was over worked. Too many tables at once. The food was good because it was unique, but the quality wasn't as great as I remembered. I will still come back, but perhaps not with as much anticipation as in the past.

Loved the Bison Burger & the Walleye was fantastic! Fun atmosphere - especially with the live music.

“Cool name and clean bathroom, nothing else”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

I came here for lunch on a Wednesday in mid January with a friend. It took 10 minutes to get seated and then 25 minutes to get our drinks, then 20 more minutes to get our food.. I had the Huevos Rancheros and she had the Juicy Lucifer burger. I am very from a picky eater, I'll eat anything made of food but that Huevos Rancheros was literally inedible. Tasted like cold salty pudding; I choked down 3 bites because I was starving but sent the rest back to the dumpster- absolutely terrible. Her Juicy Lucifer was very good, I did eat half of that. The bloody marys we had to drink were also terrible, we each had half of one. The "delicious mix" our server was bragging so much about was simply Zing Zang- I watched her crack open the bottle. All for a grand total of like $60 after tip; definitely not impressed as I could have had the same meal that was edible down the street for half the price and I'd have been full. What a joke

“A fun place to dine”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

We decided to eat at Hell's Kitchen with a group of friends when we were visiting the city. Parking can be a little tough, but it's easy if you don't mind parking in a garage. I ordered the Ham and Pear Crisp sandwich and it was delicious! The menu said that it was name one of the Top 50 Sandwiches, and it did not disappoint! My beau had a stuffed burger and he loved it. I also ordered the Foxy Fosse martini and that was very good. We look forward to returning!
