Recently dined here for dinner. Menu is much smaller and way less variety. Prices are ridiculously high. Used to always get the wings for an appetizer. Now they say they're only available late nights. Definitely will not go back...

We used to frequent Ballydoyle every few months. Their service has really gotten bad in the last year. They never seem to have enough servers and the food takes a long time to prepare. There are so many other nice choices in the area that they just are not worth going to.

I have been to Ballydoyles numerous times and keep going back. Food is great and so are the drinks. We like to go when there is a special. My husband and I like to ride our bikes on the bike path that is directly below Ballydoyles and get a drink and an appetizer while sitting on the patio by the river.

We ate dinner here with another family (4 parents, 3 kids in total). We arrived a little early (6 pm) on a Friday and, thus, snuck in before the crowds. However, once the crowds arrived, this place became quite loud. The food was decent, but not great. Our server was friendly, but she became distracted as the dinner crowd grew.

Service on this occasion was so-so until the food came and no one bothered to tell my companion that her salad was missing beets as they had run out. Mind you, that the beets were the only reason she chose that salad. I was given the wrong beer and when we were trying to pay, after the third attempt to get two of the three bills correct, we just paid the bill so we could make our show. This is not always the case but usually the service is okay and the place is packed, this was not a very busy night for them and it was yech. Will be scoping out a new spot for pre-show dinner.
