The burgers were the best we had on the trip and are worth the trip. The steak was a bit $ but was also worth every penny and so flavorful!

Holy, wow this is good food! I came here for Sunday brunch and was blown away. I had a hard time making a selection since everything looked so good, but finally got the steak and eggs. The hanger steak was cooked to perfection at MR, and was the best darn hanger steak I've ever had. If they bottled their chimichurri... More

We recently had a Mother's Day meal at Macintosh, and our experience was top-notch in every way. The staff was engaging, accommodating, and creative with various food allergies some of our party have. Each main course, side and dessert was fantastic. Not just good, amazing. Their menu is sophisticated and daring. Will return soon!

I read other reviews before I visited, so here's my opinion. Ambiance/Noise: The restaurant has a rustic feel to it, not stuffy. I can see how people would think it's loud, but I didn't think it was excessively so and we were seated by the kitchen. It may not be your best spot to visit if you're looking for a... More

This was our first stop on our impromptu bar crawl...We started off with drinks...I had the Daisy which was delicious. I can't remember my husband's drink but he loved it. We had the burrata for and app...it was very delicious...The atmosphere was great and the bartenders were attentive!! We hope to be back to try the main courses!!

We made a reservation here for a Friday at 8pm. They got us right in, the service was on point, and the waitress knew her stuff. She was really helpful with recommendations. I heard that this place had some of the best fries in the US (seriously, it was on a list of the best fries in the country!) so... More

I may have quite possibly just consumed the best thing I've ever eaten in my life - banana peanut bread with honey butter!!! It was not to be believed. The chicken and waffles was off the hook too and don't miss the bacon infused bloody Mary's with bacon crumbles on the rim! April was a terrific server and we will... More

Great bar, great location......consistent food but pushes the price/value slightly over the edge. Location obviously dictates the belief that they can get a higher dollar for their fare but it needs to be moderated a little. A $19 dollar soft shell app. is well beyond a value.

Although the chef is a James Beard recognized wunderkind, the food was pretentious and not terribly tasty. Noise level is off the charts and seating requires you to be best friends with everyone around you. Wait staff was snotty and indifferent. Cannot recommend this restaurant.
