My friend and I stopped in at Oddfellows last night for the first time. I was pleasantly surprised by the warm atmosphere and excellent customer service. I'd heard that their service is really slow, so I was really surprised by how fast everything arrived and by the attentiveness of our server, Genesis.
I love the atmosphere at Oddfellows. Wood panelling and booths combine with the low lighting to create a relaxing and homey feel. The food was excellent too. Our appetizer was especially delicious - whatever else you order there, be sure to try their in-house made pita chips and hummus. Yum! It was a bit too late for coffee (which, as a former barista, I've been eager to try), so I got an iced Chai tea. It wasn't my favorite Chai of all time, but definitely still enjoyable.
The menu had a good selection of wines, specialty drinks, beers, and coffee, as well as a wide variety of dinner options. The prices are really reasonable and portion sizes are generous.
Oddfellows is a must visit when you go to the Bishop Arts District. Great food, good service, amazing atmosphere... I'll definitely be back!
