Waitress was new and has many skills to learn. But she was trying very hard and I very much respect that.

The place looks great and I go often. We had a party of 6. This time the food took forever to come out and two other large parties that came after us got their food first so I took it that they had to redo something on our order, but they never told us or called out how long it was taking. Server was super nice and the food was good once it came out. Just took a long time. 90 minutes.

Tables are a little too close to each other. Seating is not the most comfortable. Avoid the metal chairs if possible.

My only complaint is that the veggie burger had no flavor, but it was otherwise a great experience.

Always friendly and accommodating staff. Food is excellent and was served promptly. We wanted to eat outdoors on the beautiful patio but it was a blustery day. The gas heaters helped a lot.

The Daily was awesome before Covid. They are probably understaffed now. My omelet was over cooked and had no flavor. The whole experience was meh.

We had a great 1st experience. The service and food was outstanding. There are many main dish items that are not served until 4pm, so keep that in mind if you have your heart set on a particular item. We have 4 young kids and the kids menu worked out great for us.

We will definitely be back!

Margherita pizza with the secret-weapon yum of white anchovies? Yes please! Since Daily's got white anchovies on their also-big-yum Caesar salad, I figured why not ask for some on my pizza? #winning!

I had to arrive late to my reservation, so I went and called ahead to see if I could show up 20 minutes late. The person I spoke to was gracious and was able to work something out for me, even though it was a busy Saturday night. The food was delicious as usual, and the staff was nothing short of wonderful. I love this place.

I had the pork loin and it was probably the worst pork lion I’ve had in my entire life. It was like it was taken from the freezer, microwaved and put on my plate. Shockingly bad.

I NEVER write reviews I’m just hoping someone at the Daily will see this and take some action. I didn’t complain because I didn’t want to embarrass the server who was super nice. But… food is much better at home.

The prices and the variety of the menu are both good. The food was flavorable. The portions are a little small, but okay considering the prices. Someone in our party ordered mashed potatoes to accompany a dish and the waitress informed us the chef would not make them because they do not come with the burger. We asked to have it as a side - which is listed on the menu as an available side dish- we were told no because mashed potatoes only come with the steak and chicken dish. Found that to be ridiculous as this is not a Michelin star restaurant. The chef forgot a key ingredient in a dish I ordered and requested to have it added. Lastly, we ordered a refill of iced tea during our meal and the server indicated the tea was just disposed of since they are closing at 9pm. There were tables of patrons that did not even receive their entrees yet and we were not offered any refills before they chose to throw out the remaining iced tea. Overall, this was not my first time here and I think the place is better suited for a nice afternoon meal than a nice dinner service.

I love the appetizer menu so much I ordered the Tuna Stack and the Roasted Brussel Sprouts for lunch! The brussel sprouts are always a hit! Met a friend and we had a wonderful time. Thanks as always for consistently hitting it out of the park.
