We had a fantastic staff led by Liz and sat outside on one of the street tables that they will have until November. Very good GF fish and chips and the service was the best we have had in a long tine!!!
Really impressed by the level of service. Staff was absolutely amazing, kind, quick, and professional. The food was delicious. I especially liked the spicy duck fried rice. We got the scotch egg and hummus appetizer. Both very tasty and large portions. We also got the fish and chips and chicken tikka masalla, the chicken was spicier than we were expecting but it mellowed nicely as you ate it and was very flavorful. The fish had a slightly salty aftertaste but was balanced nicely with the homemade tarter sauce. Overall this is definitely someplace you should try if you like good and creative food. Due to having to eat on the small sidewalk due to the pandemic definitely detracted a bit from the dining experience but was no means any reflection of the restaurant, they made such an effort to still provide a nice dining experience and get major points for that.
Awesome spot for great food, drinks and impeccable service! Thanks to hunter and Matthew!
Brilliant. A proper gastro pub
My husband and I went with another couple. We were sat in a booth which was VERY tight on space. Two of us had the fish and chips (gluten free/gluten free fryer) which was awesome. We had the pimento cheese dip appetizer and crawfish bisque special which were both very good. My husband had the crawfish mac and cheese and said it was good but lacking flavor. All in all I would go back! The gluten free options were pretty good!
The worst Welsh Rarebit I ever ate-bread overcooked, cheese was not hot and the rarebit concoction had an unpleasant taste. My wife had prime ribs which she said was very good but the yorkshire pudding was way overcooked and stuffed with carrots????
We had several drinks at the bar and after we sat at a table we waited 15 minutes before someone brought us a menu.
Had to park literally a half mile away-no nearby parking.
We went here when it first opened, we love it, and we went back this weekend, I was shocked, the food was really not good. I couldn't even finish mine. I would not recommend anymore.
The food was amazing! Loved the margaritas. The waiter was attentive, informative, and pleasant. The hostess was very nice. The ambiance was great for a causal evening out. Nice experience when the chef came out to greet us - he is awesome!!!
Food was very good. Enjoyed the tasty Ostrich Steak. Yummy!!! Our server, Luis was very knowledgeable and attentive.
I have no complaints
We had a great meal. The ingredients and preparation were excellent. The owner and staff were very personable. The ambience allowed for pleasant conversation without straining to hear our table mates.
It was my first time trying The Rare Bit. I enjoyed the decor inside kind of a turn of the century gothic vibe. The bar is awesome, would definitely come back to have a drink there. The menu has many different options and types of cuisine. I had the shrimp tacos and the Brussel sprout side. Both were delicious. The shrimp tacos were so fresh! Great service as well!
Wonderful We ♥️ it there!!
The food is so unique. I love the ambiance. The staff is super friendly. Rocking drinks!
Great spot for good comfort food and drinks. Service was attentive and courteous. Love the southern influence w/ the cuisine.
Great brunch. Lots of choices and everything was delicious Order the scotch eggs
The best!! From the drinks to the food. We always enjoy our time. Friendly staff and amazing bartenders.
The menu is inventive and the food delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The staff is welcoming and efficient. It’s a great place.
We loved the food. Service was good- a little noisy as the night went on
Our meal was delicious. The only problem is that I ordered the bottomless drinks, but when are tab was closed I was refused another drink even though we had only been there 2 hours (the limit is 3). However, when I pointed out that I had not asked for the tab to be closed I did get the drink.
We all loved the menu, food, service, ambiance and will be back. I have been to Rate Bit several times and it is consistent, a relaxed and inviting restaurant. Highly recommend any main dish or appetizer. It has a great bar as well.
This was our first time here. Very noisy, we could not talk. Food was Ok. Nothing super special.
The food was really good and the service superb. Will definitely go back.
I'm a big fan of The Parlor and Eugene's Diner so I was excited to try The Rare Bit. The decor is great and definitely evokes an English restaurant and pub. The drinks and food were subpar and very disappointing. I had a spicy dirty martini that was way too spicy and my wife had a drink called Over the Greens that would be best described as a mess in the glass and almost impossible to drink because of the ice, limes and cucumbers. The food wasn't much better. We had the Rarebit which was good and the Brussel Sprout Salad which was extremely tart and not good. Our entrees were boring and too basic. The Farro Grain Bowl was in a bowl but deconstructed in a way that made it really hard to combine and eat like a bowl should be. The Falafel was five falafel balls and some chopped cabbage. Both dishes were completely uninspiring and not worthy of being served in a higher end restaurant. Perhaps the concept of an English restaurant was taken a little too seriously. Lastly, no Beyond Burger on the menu although its on the OpenTable website. We won't be going back.
They had a very good Sonoma Cab on the menu as a Magnum that was fun to share. All of our meals were excellent with the short rib being a stand out. As an appetizer the tempura crusted rutabaga was unique and very tasty. Worth a return trip.
It was our first time at this restaurant. We found the food to be very good. There were a couple of challenges. We asked for bread to have while waiting for our food to arrive. We were a party of 4. The server brought 2 slices of rye bread. We commented on the portion control and they brought 2 additional slices. Very strange. The other challenge was the pricing. Our bill came close to $200 which I felt was excessive. There was one glass of wine and 3 soft drinks on the order.
Second time here and it was delicious!! Service is very attentive and the food is absolutely delicious! Make your reservation now!!
As always, food was delicious and excellent friendly service! Never disappoints!
Great British style gastro pub. Venison pie was to die for. As a Brit and a keen cook, I was prepared to be underwhelmed by by the roast prime rib and Yorkshire pudding (popover), but it was absolutely delicious. Good, reasonably priced cocktail menu and warm, friendly service. Will be back.
I like trying new foods so I tried the rarebit as an appetizer. It was delicious. The name is deceiving as you would have no idea what it was if you just went by the name. Once the waiter explained what it consisted of, I ordered it and loved it. My entree of cajun shrimp and cheesy grits was amazing, as well.
I will definitely go back to The Rarebit and recommend it to friends, as well.
Beautiful place, excellent wait staff! The duck rice was our favorite. The drinks are garbage. The dessert was awful. Not returning.
Cozy ambience and amazing short ribs!
Staff was pleasant and attentive. Food was good, though portions were small. Seating was quick and it was a nicely lit and friendly atmosphere. Unfortunately, gluten free options were very limited.
The combination of food, decor and service are all some of the best anywhere. I will be back again.
It was very noisy on a Sat night but we were accommodated with a change of table. After 8/30 or so it quieted sown. Salad was excellent. Fish tacos were also.. I had trouble finding the fish. My friends enjoyed the brisket but I thought the bacon flavor was very strong. My husband like the pasta Bilik was but also said he prefers a more traditional meat sauce. Also in all it was good and we will prob return.
Wow! What a delicious meal! The pork chop is amazing!! Also the fried chicken was excellent! Service is excellent and love love love the decor! Cannot wait to come back! Make your rez today!!
Food was great, our waitress was very nice. We came here for the burger, but they were sold out. Still, all of the food we ordered was delicious. Will be back.
Good spot overall. No complaints. Drinks are fun. Recommend.
Food was very good. Really enjoyed the menu.
