    We had NO experience, except that of disappointment. My friends were taking me out for a birthday dinner. We had reservations for four. When we showed up Thursday the 9th, the restaurant was dark. A sign posted to let us know the restaurant was closed. We weren’t notified about the closure and for this reason, very disappointed this wasn’t communicated to me through our reservation.

    This is the second time my husband and I have dined at Chuck Lager’s. A casual place with nice ambience. The menu offers creative salads and entrees, definitely not standard pub fare. Being pescatarian it’s sometimes difficult to work my way around a menu. The server readily changed out the chicken that came with the salad, for salmon. My husband enjoyed his burger and sweet potato fries. Great service and food at this second visit. In addition to our food, Chuck Lager’s features an array of coctails, beers and wine. There is a cozy bar area at the front of the restaurant with sports playing on multiple screens but preserves the feel of a comfortable bar setting. For the warmer months there’s an outdoor patio. The restaurant is spacious and one can only hope Chuck Lager’s fill tables to keep their doors open. Please consider putting Chuck Lager’s on your to-visit list. We’ll be back for sure.

    I had the roast pork, which was very salty, and dry not very good. It was also a kids party next to us and was very loud there. I would not return to this restaurant. I don’t believe it is worth the value.

    This was our second visit to Chuck Lager, and it will definitely not be our last. We had a delicious dinner. One of us had a burger which was excellent. I had the chicken wings which I loved. My husband had the Philly beef sandwich which he said was outstanding. We shared salads which were all delicious, and the fourth person had a flatbread which she thoroughly enjoyed. The server was competent and friendly. It was a great evening.

    We had a Friday night reservation, 6:30. It seemed pretty empty when we arrived yet had to wait 10 plus minutes to be seated. We sat outside. Service was good, food was okay… we didn’t love the menu. There was some live music on the patio, but it was super loud and not… great. I’m not sure we’ll go back.

    Great food and music on a Friday night! We arrived at the tail end of Happy hour which was a little bonus. Guitarist/singer and partner/accompaniast were lovely. Great songs, nit too loud for the space. We ordered an appetizer and dinner and it was to much food. We'll enjoy leftovers for lunch today.

    We were so disappointed. French fries were good. Everything else was fair to poor. My husband hated his chicken sandwich. My salad was bland. My friend had shrimp tacos. Each one of 3 tacos was loaded with corn and seriously one shrimp apiece. Ahi poke nachos had way too many wontons for the amount of tuna, though that was probably the best item. Service was good. We won’t be back.

    I would not go back as the food was not good. Nacho's were awful and the heavy beer cheese on the burger tasted artificial and was overwhelming. The fried crust on the Fish and Chip dish was so thick and hard and crusty, it almost flew off the plate when my wife tried to cut it. The taste of the food was wholly underwhelming.

    First visit to Chuck Lager's. It was a weeknight so pretty empty and quiet. They had a nice selection of food and beverages. The ! French Onion Dip sandwich was ok. The burger was huge. Beverages good. The service was great! Also had the deviled egg appetizer which was very good. I'm sure we will return.

    Considering there was nobody seated inside the restaurant : my friends and I couldn’t believe that the management decided to seat a family with rowdy kids in the booth next to us. The table choices were endless for that family. After speaking to the manager when we were leaving about this issue she was condescending .the manager , told us they didn’t do it maliciously. What? Clearly, the communication skills were lacking. The inexperience in customer service was evident. We will not be returning.

    A mixed review. The food was good, but the portions were small, and mostly ala carte. The food was also a bit pricey for what you get. The service started out good, but kind of fizzled out from the middle on forward.

    Overpriced for the portions. My $23 burger with just cheese and grilled mushrooms was maybe a 1/3 lb patty at best. For that price it should be a 1/2 lb. Also came on a plain bun which was another blown opportunity for a $23 burger. It was just a few bites and nothing special. The sweet potato fries were delicious as was the giant $14 pretzel. Not in a rush to go back.

    The food was great again. I would suggest the "back end" service make some improvements: --I ordered broccolini as a side for my sandwich, but was charged $4.00; nowhere was it stated by either a server or the menu that there would be an upcharge. It was a little bit of a surprise to my bill. --My table ordered a French Onion Soup for $8.00, but the bill came with it being $10.00. A manager adjusted the bill, but it makes me wonder how many people overpaid? The food was great; we will be back. But please get your operations adjusted as well. Too many restaurants in the area have gone out of business because little things like this were not accounted for.

    Overall, was a very average experience. We ordered a French onion burger, some brisket Mac and cheese and some wings to try a few different items on the menu. Each one left more to be desired. The burger was quite greasy and too rich to want to eat the whole thing, but at least the truffle fries were delicious on the side. The brisket with the Mac was so tough it was hard to eat and I ended up pulling most out of the dish. And the wings were fine but nothing to write home about. Service was fine and it wasn’t overly crowded for a Saturday night, but nothing about our experience has us super excited to make it back anytime soon.

    We sat outside so the ambiance was quiet and comfortable. There were 4 of us. My friend and I shared an order of flatbread and an entree salad and they were both delicious and were enough to share. Our husbands had the Cuban sandwich and loved it. We ordered sweet potato fries and we all agreed they were delicious. Would definitely go back! Great server.
