Exceptional food and service! We had the meatloaf, stuffed long hots, and soup. Everything was outstanding. We look forward to returning soon and trying other items on their great menu.

The waitress Olivia was very sweet and attentive and the food was good as usual BUT it took over a half hour for our food to come out. Which was kind of ridiculous given that there weren’t that many customers besides us. And there wasn’t a shortage of waitstaff present so I don’t understand why the food took as long as it did.

Such a great find. Definitely get the meatloaf sandwich. The cheesesteak egg rolls with creamy sauce was DELICIOUS. And the chocolate cake was heaven!

It was an off night. It had to be. Cedar craft is normally delicious and a great experience but tonight was way off. The filet special was terrible . Not cooked right or seasoned properly. Almost tasted like a microwaved steak marinated on red wine vinegar . Mashed potatoes had a crust and were so dry, as if they were frozen and over microwaved. Veggies were stick together as if frozen and reheated. The service was excellent as always. I’d give them another try and stick to pasta or a sandwich

Met some friends here after they picked up their son from the airport. Service was very good and friendly, food and drinks were great. Seems like the kind of place every neighborhood wishes they had. Will look forward to going back.

Cedar Craft Kitchen was very cozy. Bar and eating space all in one. So if you like really cozy you will be in your element. The food had an interesting twist. Server never offered us dessert, so as we were leaving we saw some mouth watering items that other tables had.

A friend and I wound up here after another suggested restaurant was too busy for us. We were slightly skeptical when we had difficulty finding the place, but once we did, we loved everything! Super cute, and everyone was very friendly. The food was amazing! We had fried risotto and I could have eaten it all night. I tried the filet special and was blown away. My friend's burger was perfect. The dessert was small but very good, and you could tell in was made in house. I will also say that they had a great beer and drinks selection, but there was no pressure to have one, which most bar/restaurants definitely do.
10/10 would recommend!

The way to look at this is a bar that has a few tables that is trying to sell upscale food. It’s a hole in the wall. Waitress was ok but nothing special. She messed up our appetizers. Food was ok. Nothing great but nothing bad either. I would say entree dinner for $18 was good but I would probably not go back. It was just average food that I could get anywhere else.

Stopped on our way home from the airport. What a delightful place! Prompt, friendly service. Large selection of beer on tap and a good choice of wines. Enjoyed chicken Parmesan and lobster ravioli - staff were attentive to food allergies. A nice mix of young families, older couples and friends reconnecting after work. Not too noisy so you can have a conversation . A welcoming atmosphere. Don’t be put off by the residential neighborhood and no frills atmosphere. This place is a real find. We will go back.

Still not disappointed!!! It was a very busy Saturday night and our food was a little slow coming out. We were hungry, but not the least bit upset or concerned about it. Chef realized we were waiting, apologized numerous times and sent us a drink on top of that. We've been going to CCK since it opened and we LOVE THIS PLACE!!! PS, the new Mocha Coffee Martini is awesome!!!

Terrible experience. Server was sweet and clearly embarrassed. Tables that showed up after us were served and got checks even before we received our entrees. Shame. Was excited about dining at this local bar before our show at the Barnstormer.

Started by having to wait even with reservation. Not because there wasn't a table, because they didn't know what they were doing at the hostess station. Others came in behind us and another hostess sat them at the empty table while we were standing waiting for the other hostess to come back. Then there was the wait for someone to take our order. The hostess finally brought us water after about 20 minutes, another 20 minutes and the waitress arrived. We ordered an appetizer, 40 minutes or so later it arrived with our dinner (same time) and was served by yet another hostess. Rarely saw the waitress even though tables were emptying out. The dinner was okay. Took 2 hours for a basic dinner. no appetizers or dessert, it shouldn't have but the staff seemed more interested in taking amongst themselves. We didn't bother to order dessert, didn't want to wait even larger. There was a young playing guitar, who was really good, the highlight of the meal.

We recently started coming to this place as it is close to home! Always something to eat and if you are prepared their specials are quite good but also a little pricey, although you get what you pay for so all in all a good spot.

They have music when we go on Friday which has been very good! My only negative is the beer could be colder.

Cedar is a small neighborhood bar/restaurant.
We had a 5:45 reservation mid week. We were seated right away. It was; however, a bit drafty sitting at a table near the door. We asked to be moved to an open table near the rear of the dining room. We were told there was a large party coming in. No problem. Our waitress greeted us almost immediately and took our drink order. There was a wine special but we chose to pass and just had iced teas. Soups and salads came without delay. We were a party of four and we ordered shrimp, chicken piccata, and crab cakes. All were delicious.
I definitely recommend trying Cedar for yourself. We will be going back soon and we can’t wait.

A great neighborhood tavern. Warm, relaxed atmosphere - happy chatter at the bar, but not too loud. Friendly staff. Above average comfort food. Nice variety of entrees. Especially enjoyed the arugula salad, smashed potatoes, and porter on tap. Veggies of the day were cooked to just the right tenderness - attentively prepared. Very mild flavors; I’d like to see the seasoning game raised to match their success with textures.

Could do without the television screens in the dining room, but overall very satisfied!

We were a group of 5 and 2 had the specials while the other three ordered off the menu. We started with the shrimp scampi and asparagus plus the risotto bites. The shrimp was a little over done but the fried asparagus was excellent. The risotto bites were awesome. Everyone's entree was excellently prepared with big but not excessive portions. We would definitely go back again.
