My friends and I had the best time! We went for Sunday brunch and it was wonderful! The menu had a great selection and the food was delicious! In addition, they had live music and it was fantastic to be able to sit and enjoy great food, friends, and some live music. Finally, the wait staff, they were just PHENOMENAL! Some places, the staff makes you feel like an inconvenience but the wait staff at C.W.S made you feel like they actually valued your business! Our waitress was timely and just the friendliest person! I will recommend C.W.S to all of my friends and family! Keep up the great work!

The server needs to ask the right questions versus guessing with her answers. The food was great.

The outside patio is great. Though the food was very good and service was phenomenal, prices seemed a bit too high. 2 burgers, the pretzel app, 2 beers and 2 mojitos were almost $95 after tip.

One thing I found worse than the cost were the chairs/stools: very uncomfortable.

With the Covid-19 issue you have to be careful what restaurants you choose. Had never been to CWS so I thought it might be a good change, we gave it a try.

Every person on the waitstaff had masks covering their mouth (not nose) or their chins , including our waiter. The place was crowded and safe distancing was not present. The food was just okay (hamburger), but the french fries were the worst i have ever had. Mushy and Limp. Drinks were okay. Noise was loud and that was before the band began. We reserved outdoor seating. We go placed in a large room almost totally enclosed by a canvas tent". May as well been seated inside. Don't think we'll be back anytime soon.

C.W.S. always provides creative and delicious food when we are in Lake Worth. It is our go-to place when in town. The setting is great and the interior, which is much quieter, is properly socially-distanced. So you feel secure eating there. It is a wonderful place to have some food and some fun.

The ambiance and setting was great. But, I was really disappointed because I had high hopes for the food based on the reviews. We ordered the bang bang shrimp, which had nice jumbo shrimp but the breading fell off completely the moment you stabbed it with a fork. My wife and I ordered our Burgers medium and they came out well done. I also asked the server if the cherry peppers on the burger were sweet or hot, they told me sweet but they were hot. The server was polite but didn't even ask how the food was at the end. So, I didn't provide feedback. I just won't be returning because our bill is $80 and the food was really below average.

It was our first time at CWS and we absolutely loved it! Will be back! Had a table outside, right in front of the band, which is what we were hoping for! Saw Spred the Dub and we loved them! JOSH is the most amazing waiter! He went waaaay above and beyond and was wonderful at helping me select cocktails that were so deliciously YUM! The food was all fantastic but I must mention that their house made ranch is out of this world!! They should sell bottles of the stuff! The beer garden was a tad smaller than I thought it might be but it was still fabulous.... just perfect for when you want a smaller intimate crowd. The ambience outside was on point with beautiful little touches everywhere you look. I think it’s great that they allow dogs and super cute that the waitstaff are all attentive to their furry patrons. Can’t wait to bring my daughter and her pup here next times she’s in town! Great place, great people, great food, great music, great fun!

Obviously COVID has changed a lot for everyone these days but CWS has been handling it great!! They checked temps upon arrival and required masks to and from tables. We sat outdoors in the garden and it was perfect! Food and beverage served in disposable but eco friendly containers. Awesome drinks and food per usual.

My fiancé and I love going to CWS, it’s our place to go to eat, talk and have good drinks. We usually have the same waiter and we get along with him like if he was a close friend. I recommend this place honestly from the bottom of my heart. I have taken friends and family to go eat there and everyone has loved it.

Service was meh. Waitress, young girl, was not attentive at all and kept calling me “love”.
The biggest problem is that my husband got a NY Strip Steak that cost $42 that looked and tasted like something you’d get at Applebee’s for $20. All in all the whole night should’ve cost cost $42. I got a burger and neither of us drank alcohol and the bill was $86! Total rip-off. Now I know why there were so many available reservations the day before Valentines Day.
