I liked the place and the service was good. Maybe we ordered the wrong thing, but I was very underwhelmed with my scallops an the apps we got. Not to say I wouldn't go back, but I'd probably stick to more bar food and apps next time around.

I'm not sure how to answer this I've been to the industry twice the first time the food and service were both very good. This time it was a Sunday evening, and the restaurant was not busy at all, yet I found that we were constantly wondering where our server was. While the steaks were good, the vegetable side was barely cooked, particularly the brussel sprouts. I give it a good rating, perhaps because the steak was slightly better than good and the vegetables worse. I can't really say if I will return.

Made a reservation for Valentine’s Day. Ended up at the worst table in the house ... right outside kitchen and bathrooms. Every waitstaff person had to walk by our table. Sautéed mushrooms were definitely not fresh and appeared to be from a can. Stuffed mushroom appetizer was the tiniest mushrooms I’ve ever seen ... I almost laughed. Steak tips smothered in not so tasty bbq sauce. Overpriced meal for what we received. Doubtful we will return. Unfortunately, one and done experience!

Donna is an awesome hostess. Valentine’s Day so it was a prix-fixe menu and you can’t have it all, but it was a very good overall experience. We’ll be back.

Bad service- do t have your bar tender be the waitress any day but especially on Friday.

Food - not great. Grisly steak, under cooked chicken. Kids meal was even terrible


Value - 150 for 1 app, 2 adult entree and chicken nuggets with 2 glasses of wine. Had the food tasted amazing, maybe, honestly macdonalds would have been better.

We thought the experience including the service, food, and cocktails met or exceeded our expectations. The hardest part was finding parking. Overall this is a good restaurant close enough that we will visit again.

Love the atmosphere and the staff. Salad was plain/bland (iceberg/carrots/cucumbers not for $9 and the Chicken Bruschetta meal had zero taste. Was hoping for more flavor/spices. Will go back and try a different meal because the staff was awesome and the other meals looked good!

Food, service and ambiance was excellent. Very classy establishment. Food was delicious, but not as described on the menu (curry chicken was supposed to have onions and peppers and fries with the rice, but no onions or peppers and salad instead of fries) but all was tasty and enjoyable.

Second year in a row going for NYE....really great crowd. Great food and drinks; the servers passed out free champagne just before 7PM to toast Ireland's New Year celebration. Band came on around 8:30PM and there were free raffle tickets and prizes. Great night.

Our server, Kat was very good as was the food. We had opentable rewards and Donna the assistant manager went over and above to figure out how to redeem. The calamari app was plentiful and very good and the burger was big enough to share! My only complaint is the parking situation, not easy. But the atmosphere is energetic with a great bar scene and beer selection.

This was my second time having dinner here and pretty much my last time dining in. In my opinion, It’s not a place for people of color to frequent. The food is okay but yeah I’ve booked on open table and requested standard seating as opposed to high top seating and both times the place isn’t packed but I can’t get a regular seating. If you’re Irish catholic you’re going to be served how you’d like to be. I came with my mom’s on Mother’s Day and then on a date with my white boyfriend this time and that made no difference. Like I said the food is decent but if you’re a person of color you shouldn’t bother dining in.

Great atmosphere on a Saturday night. Live music (singer) was unexpected and fun. Everyone liked their entrees, including steak tips and Irish curry. We also enjoyed the chicken quesadilla for an appetizer. Our server (I think Hannah) was awesome. We had one hiccup when we arrived - we were given a high top table even though we selected standard seating when making the reservation on OpenTable - but the manager was able to straighten it out. This was our first time visiting but we are local so I'm sure we'll be back.

The food was good, it came out very quickly and was tasty. The only negative was the steak tips weren’t cooked as asked for. Otherwise the meal was great, the service was fast, friendly and courteous. The drinks were AMAZING, especially the Chocolate Espresso. I would definitely recommend this establishment to all friends and co-workers.

Fantastic food..our first time dining here. We will be back for many, many meals to come. Great server (Karen) and hostess were accommodating. Even kitchen staff was sensitive to my food allergies and made me feel comfortable and confident that my food would be prepared with care!!! My husband and I will definitely return to The Industry!

Regardless of our open table reservation, we were told 2 better tables (than what was offered to us) were being held for people who made reservations earlier/not open table reservations (2 tables that no one sat in- they just held them for over 1/2 hour after we arrived). With so many great choices nearby, I'll go someplace next time. First and last visit to industry.

We were greeted with a smile, always a plus. Elaina, our server, was prompt, kind and well informed on the menu. She is definitely an asset! The food was outstanding! Oh, that ravioli! The bruschetta was nice and crisp and didn’t fall apart when you picked it up. All the food was beautifully presented. The prices were a bit higher than we usually spend but we will certainly be back!

This was my second visit. The first time was better. There was fresh bread right out of the oven back when I ate there in the fall. This time there was just grocery store rolls (olive oil was still on the table - I’m not sure why.) Menu has changed. The dish I had last time which I loved was no longer on the menu. Food and service was still good.

We waited over an hour for our food and when we asked our waitress, all she said was “some tickets got backed up, I’m sorry” and she walked away. A manager never came over to us to apologize, or take anything off our bill. We would have been fine with an apologize... without having to ask for one.

Limited menu for lunch. I’m gluten free and there were really no options. We ended up having some cocktails and going somewhere else for lunch.
