A "nacho" app (potato chips?! with a tiny bit of shredded, fatty short rib, and a few big chunks of tomato and onion) was served cold, and the chicken sandwich was dangerously undercooked, after an unusually long wait. Inedible. There were only two other parties there at the time, on a Sunday at about 6pm. It was probably the worst... More

I usually am very hesitant to announce that I have a Groupon especially when it comes to a restaurant establishment for fear that the quality of food may not be the same as if you paid full price. this was the first time I ever felt that we received that kind of food that reflected the value of our Groupon...

There is a good, well-priced brunch menu, but the service was awful. When we got there , it was a little busy, but not crowded. By the time we were done, there were only 2 or 3 small groups, but the service did not improve. There was one sever covering all the small groups and she seemed completely overwhelmed, despite...

Ate here prior to some NCAA Womens basketball and had a decent meal. Started with mac and cheese-delicious. I had a turkey blt and hubby had a cheesesteak. We both had the homemade chips which were plentiful and tasty. Service is good and the server was pleasant. Prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere pleasant.

Not at all happy with the restaurant. I requested draft beer and the lady brought me a bottle, My son got sick and threw up from the chicken taco, my burger was supposed to come with an egg, but the lady said that I would have needed to order it? The fries need to be clean and not burnt from... More

Service was excellent. Salads were fresh and nicely sized and presented. On nice days able to sit outside. Great spot for lunch especially if you work in the area.

For the Barnum Publick House, very hard. Two people in our group ordered whole wheat toast -- both received white. This isn't hard -- the kitchen needs to pay attention. Ordered omelette with sausage and onions. Very little sausage and onions. At least they got the cheddar right. Space is very noisy. Unlikely to go back.

I had a terrific beet and goat cheese salad for lunch (albeit on the pricey side, especially when I added grilled chicken). The menu is full of comfort food (looked good). Ample space inside and out with full bar. I would probably rate it good (rather than very good) but I would still return.
