My experience was pretty good. me and my boyfriend went on a date and we are young and were treated differently than the couples around us but that’s to be expected.

The appetizers were not good. The calamari and shrimp were terrible. The crackers for the tuna were old and soggy. The Caesar salad was also old, leaves were brown and should have been thrown out. The chicken was dry and burnt. The only good food served from our 4 appetizers and 4 main courses was the burger, which was delicious and cooked as asked for, and the cup of poblano soup.

Great experience! Was a bit upset that they no longer have crab cakes, but the manager made up with it by offering the birthday boy a birthday shot. Great service and great food, we would definitely be back again!

Great place for dinner and drinks. My wife and I shared the pan fried red snapper. The fish was not evenly cooked and the mashed potatoes were under seasoned.

Let’s just say that this place wasn’t great at all. Food was terrible. Ordered the fried chicken special it was horrible, just a bunch of breading with zero flavor, pair that with the cold mash potatoes. Cedar plank salmon was ok but the shrimp was way to salty. Drinks over priced. We had 2 apps 1 salad, fried chicken, salmon with 2 draft beers and 4 martinis. $210 out of pocket. Chicken was $15 salmon was $20 salad was $12 apps $9 each. Thats how over priced those drinks are. Wouldn’t bother with that place ever again. Service was slow

Albeit in the midst of a pandemic, this was a very pleasing and surprising joint. Good bourbon selection for those of us the American original. Food was wonderful and a good variety. Will be going back in the near future.

We had the best time at Hearsay - Market Square! Everyone was super attentive and made our experience outstanding! Our steaks were delicious and the atmosphere was just right! It was the perfect birthday date night for us! It would equally be a great place for nice cocktails and appetizers before dinner! We will absolutely be back! 10/10!

Tried their Thursday’s Gentleman’s Night. Steak and sides were great. Loved the Texas charcuterie board and fresh baked pretzel. You can’t beat the $8 Woodford Reserve old fashioned. Will definitely go again.

Cool place for a date. I've been to the one in Galv and that was a mid day visit. But we had dinner here tonight and really enjoyed sitting upstairs. We were seated at the railing overlooking the main dining area so we got to look down at all the other diners. A lovely chandelier next to us. The food was outstanding and I actually ate brussell sprouts which i
dislike. Service was good. A bit expensive with the bottle of wine. But BRAVO!
