We frequent Fancy’s as a date night.
Our Server Amanda was delightful and attentive.
The food is always great, we love the oysters.
The special I ordered as an entree was a small portion for the price.
Over all we intend to keep this as one of our favorite spots.

The drinks were overpriced for their size. Average glass of wine for $11-12 is too much. Specialty drink glasses too small. Food was great, would have preferred one more salad option. Service was great.

Ribeye steak With Fancy's Fries and the back plate is the El Guapo burger.
The El Guapo was delicious, totally worth it.
The Steak on the other hand in my opinion was not worth it for the price, I paid about 36 for the steak since its market priced. Not as tender and juicy as I would have liked it, somewhat chewy. The in house steaksauce they make is a great compliment and added alot of flavor to the steak, otherwise the steak itself tasted decent.

Service was great. Seating uncomfortable. $77 for two small meals and it didn’t come with a salad or drink. I mean I had a steak on fries and the other was fish on salsa . The music was way too loud and couldn’t converse. For that price I would have dined at Highlands or The Botega.

Fancy’s is a good space filler dinner. Nothing too special - service is fine but not great. I enjoyed the Greek salad with blackened shrimp and the fries were great

The food was excellent. We had burgers and they were exceptionally good. . We had a reservation and were seated promptly. The restaurant was so loud that you couldn't hear others at the table. Loud music and yelling customers made communication a challenge. The seating in the patio area is outdoor quality with metal chairs which were a little uncomfortable. Indoor seating appeared more comfortable. Overall a good find for a really good burger.

It was ok- I did expect more. It was more bar thanI expected and the blie cheese hamburger was good but super rich. I had the truffle fries which were delicious, but also so very rich. I should not have had them pairs. No real reason to return , but checked it off My list

Our server was fantastic! His suggestions were excellent and he was attentive despite being really busy as the place was packed! The menu was casual but varied. There was a nice selection of wine by the glass. Everything we had to eat was very good. If noise bothers you, you may want to try and go early or much later as 7 pm was hopping with people and definitely on the louder end of the spectrum. We enjoyed our evening and will definitely be back!

Went to Fancy's on a Saturday night with two grand daughters. I had the fish and chips, and they were better than anything I've ever had in London. The service was fantastic.

Hoppin little restaurant right on the street corner. The food is modern and on point. I asked my waiter about quite a few different items on the menu (different kinds of burgers) and he described everything in detail and then made his recommendations. (The lump crab dip is amazing!)
Great food, great ambience. I would recommend a reservation as this place has become pretty popular and it is a small restaurant.

Food & service were great! Highly recommend. It’s perfect for quick bite before a show. We were able to walk to Avondale Brewery to a concert at 7:00pm. We even stopped at an ice cream shop on the way. My husband had murder point oysters which were delicious. I had a burger with pork belly and pimento cheese -it was really good! Great place.

We absolutely loved the food. Upscale casual with a gourmet twist on burgers. Definitely not your run of the mill burger joint. Bar tender made great fresh cocktails. Food came out quickly considering the crowd. Outdoor covered dining would be great during cooler months. Our only disappointment was that our waiter seemed to forget about us once our entrees came. We had to ask if there was a dessert menu. Hoping he was simply having an off night as it’s a great place.

Last Wed 6:30 too loud to talk. calamari old-tough, over salted to hide staleness. Took home- cat even refused to eat!😂 Salmon cook so dry in went snap crackle and pop when you forked it. This trip was not like our first experience several months ago.

The food is always so delicious when we visit fancy’s! The oysters are a must-try every time because they get them from various areas and those areas rotate frequently. The cocktails are unique and tasty and they have a great selection of beer and wine as well. The food took a little longer this time than it had previous times but we weren’t in a hurry. The crunch and flavor of the calamari (and the variety appetizer) is perfect, and our waiter was fantastic! Will definitely be going again- we love this place!
