“Memorable Lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

First time at KP and looking forward to the next! The decor is warm and inviting and the server was friendly and efficient. My wife (quiche) and I (1/2 club sandwich with white chili) were very pleased with the presentation and taste of our dishes. It was a memorable lunch and we will definitely return for KP duty!

“cozy on a freezing day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

We enjoyed KP DUTY on the TN side of the Bristol town. We had hot home made soup and great service. It is quaint and we enjoyed sitting at the big window looking out on State Street.

“Terrible Service, Terrible Staff, Overpriced”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Recently went there with my family and friends. We had to ask for a children's menu which they didn't have but said they could make a pasta dish, pizza, or peanut butter sandwich. Our server wasn't even sure what soda products they carried nor their beer selection. Finally we all placed our order. 10 mins later our drinks finally arrived and which time the place had a few more customers in there. Still waiting for our food we noticed the other tables getting bread and appetizers. After 45 mins we had to ask our server for bread since the kids were starting to get hungry. Over an hour after taking our orders our food finally arrives. Everyone's food arrived but my daughter's pizza. When it did arrive the cheese was barely melted. My burger was bland and overcooked. I finally asked for a manager and asked why when we were the first customers here we were served last. Her response was it was the kitchen's fault and that the tables around us were reservations and therefore were served first. I let her know that I found that excuse to be unprofessional and unacceptable. When they brought our tickets she apologized for the mixup in tickets and gave us some comp tickets. To me a little too late. No manager should ever tell a customer that unless you have reservations you shouldn't expect to get good service.

“Great food, great location.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

KP Duty serves great gourmet food with an extensive selection of wine. It is located on the main street (State Street) which encompasses many interesting shops. You may dine in or outside.

“Horrible Service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

We visited K.P. Duty for lunch one day, and the service could not have been more terrible. The waitress was not the least bit friendly, cold actually, and they seemed to be out of everything by 1pm. Go to Machiavelli's, 620 State, or Eatz to experience better food and MUCH better service. We will not be returning here. Too bad, as this place has great potential. With decent food and a wonderful location, friendly wait staff would make a huge improvement.
