Great bar, drinks, and beer. Menu is limited but quite tasty. Service is excellent. We enjoy our visits here. It can be very noisy some nights.

Enjoyed the live music. Thrilled by the decor. Only needed to finish the theme with costumed wait staff.

We requested a booth for dinner for 6 for a girls night out and arrived with 5” to spare to find they had place 6 chairs around a tiny 4-top crammed next to three other small tables. I asked how they were going to 6 dinner plates and drinks around that tiny table, and they said they thought we were just there for drinks and the live music. I replied I had no idea there was live music. Eventually they brought a second smaller table to expand our table.

I am just frustrated that they don’t honor the request for a booth when my reservations were so timely.

Extremely noisy!! Food was ok, had the chicken fried steak and it was very tough. I only ate less than half. Wife had the same thing and hers was better. Batter on steak was very good. Service was mediocre. Was never asked how the meal was.

This was our first time. We had lunch and ate at the bar. We received great service and talked with one of the owners. Everyone was friendly. The food was very good. We ordered the chicken fried steak sandwich, the Caesar salad, and the layered hummus dish, and finished off with wine. The dinner specials looked very good, so we will be back.

Interesting mix of 70s vibe with dark interior and leather seats but with large TVs and college football. Food is reasonably priced with crust on chicken fried chicken breast sandwich nice and crispy. Would not recommend the Jess hummus appetizer though as it was hard to eat with large olive and tomato pieces. Not romantic date spot but overall not bad.

Celebrated a friend's birthday at Ned's last Saturday evening, August 24th. First time there. Nicely decorated, tucked away on May. Our server, Kat - was on top of her game. Friendly, knowledgeable, timely. Our appetizers were amazing. Drinks were tasty and the entrees were delicious. I don't know if there is a happy hour - if not, I suggest it. Thank you - we'll be back :)

Service was good and attentive. The food was good I had the poblano chicken fried steak dinner and the gravy was flavorful but not spicy. Wife had a chicken dish with polenta which she enjoyed. I just feel like it was a bit overpriced for what it was. No real complaints but just a bit higher than warranted.

We were 25 minutes late for reservation and they held table for us. Service was very good. Food was hot and plentiful. Prices are low to moderate great value. We will definitely go back. We were told about the place by family members.

Ned's has a cool vibe, kinda retro. It was pretty noisy the night we were there, but there was a pretty loud group sitting near us. We all enjoyed our food! Between the 5 of us, we tried the chicken fried steak, burgers, onion rings and salmon. All very good and large portions!

It was Mother's Day and we were seated at one of the high tables requiring bar stools. 4 of our party were 70+. I asked and they graciously moved us to a regular height table.
The staff could not have been nicer. The food was very good. And we had a very nice experience.
I will return, gladly.

The chicken fried steak is some of the best I have had. It is too much for one person. You either need to split it or plan on taking some home with you.

I like the restaurant, a very retro vibe.

Ned's was a nice, casual place for surprisingly somewhat upscale options. We started with loaded fries which one should definitely read the description before ordering. While they were good and filling, they were really not something we would normally enjoy. They have a "light" menu which offered a very nice watermelon salad with a very nice chili sauce drizzled on the plate; the feta cheese worked very well with this combination. My husband ended up ordering the shrimp and polenta from the appretizer menu (too full from the fries) and was not disappointed. The service was a little slow on drinks and the lighting could be dimmed to create a better atmosphere but overall we enjoyed and will visit again.

The food was amazing, we come here a lot to eat, just happened to notice on open table that they now have reservations and decided to book through here! The owners and staff are wonderful, have never had a bad meal. The drink menu is top notch. 10/10 would recommend to a friend!
