    Staff is so attentive and accommodating. My fried chicken was delish. Burgers are made perfectly!! Cocktail list was on point!! Don’t order a mojito. Used lime juice. Not good. They exchanged for a different cocktail w/o charge for the mojito. Great service.

    Terrible treatment, the host was rude and then the manager even more. They didn’t want to seat us in the requested table at first without any valid reason. Then when I insisted, because the restaurant was empty, she said we could seat there but had to leave by 7; it was only 5:15pm (plenty of time in between)Again, no valid reason to not grant the request Just because they didn’t want. very poor service on their part. I can expect that from the host, it looks like it was a teenager who was having a bad day, but the manager was a grown woman. We left before 7 and there were several empty tables in that area, which confirm to us that they were just refusing to seat us just because. Very unfortunate because the server, Sarah, was lovely.

    This was my 2nd visit to Lucy's Enjoyed Eggs Benedict and French Toast sticks. Mimosa's were nice too. I was with my daughter who is over age 22 but under age 25. They took her ID. I watched a manager take a photo of it and then go in the back to verify it. Not sure why this is necessary but it made us uncomfortable in this day of identity theft. I don't think my daughter will come back here again and I don't blame her.

    French fries were cold and bland. Cheeseburger didn’t have much taste and that was on the cold side too. Bacon was burnt.

    Coming from Hingham, I was looking for a halfway place to meet a friend from Belmont. I wanted reasonably priced but good quality bar food, a good selection of micro brew beer, and a parking lot, and not too far to drive off the beaten path. Jackpot. The weather was great, so I loved sitting next to the window-open half-wall. The only bad thing was the angry/impatient drivers honking their horns at the Granite Avenue light. But it wasn't constant (thank goodness.) I Wish drivers would be more aware that there are others impacted by their honks besides the car in front of you. However, we had a great time, and an excellent steak salad.

    First time here. The place is very cool. The wait staff is very friendly. Our food was very good but my husband asked for his steak to be medium and it came out well done. No pink at all. We will give them another try as everything else was great!

    My moms picky sometimes and the server handled it SO kindly. She had complained about the chipotle aioli on her food and he was so nice and genuine. Also, we went to multiple restaurants this weekend (bday & grad in one weekend) and this was by far the best service we encountered. Shoulda came here for grad dinner I guess! Lol

    We dined for brunch on Mother's Day because my mom really wanted to check this place out. We were a party of 4 seated in a very tight booth. We were able to catch the brunch menu, but quickly regretted it. Our fried egg was cold, our french toast burnt, and the complaints continue. We mentioned to our waitress that our 2 orders of french toast were burnt, she spoke to the manager, and proceeded to tell us that since we started eating them that there was nothing they could do. TOTAL FAIL!
