Service was good but the food was a little disappointing. I usually rave about how good the food is but I got my usual and it just wasn’t as good as usual.

We have been going to “59” for years! We will continue for many more. We are always greeted with a smile and a welcome from Anthony, Larry and BJ, as well as many more! The food is fantastic! Our server, was superb! Another win!

Had a reservation but waited 20min for a table. Once seated no one came to give water or place settings for the table until 30 minutes after we were seated and that was only because we had to get up from our table to tell someone. The waitress that had our table completely ignored us when we were seated. Never apologized for having us wait.

Food was delicious, & service was good. We ate outside but had an issue with bees. This made us leave before dessert and ask for the rest of our food to be put in containers.

We weren't happy with our original booth assignment in the bar area. We asked to have a table assignment change and the restaurant hostess was gracious enough to change our table which was in a much better location. The food was delicious and the bar drinks were excellent. Thank you for a nice dining experience.

Girls at the front desk were rude. They say they have standard seating available - when you get there, it is not. Only outdoor seating available. People understand restaurants are short staffed, but don’t advertise you have seating.

Despite having a reservation I still had to wait a half hour for a table. The food is good and the portions are great I really can’t complain about that. But this is the second time that I’ve made a reservation and still had to wait a while. Not quite sure if all ever go back on a Saturday.

I wanted to love 59 Almhouse, but it just didn't hit the mark. Service was okay, but missed several points. Never provided drink list at bar, slow to refill drinks, left bar with credit card for a long period of time and then the card wasn't even with the check. Literally chased the bartender to try to find it. Food had potential, yet didn't get it done. Ask temperature on burgers, came out well done instead of requested medium, side dishes came out 10 minutes after entrees. Overall attention to detail not there. Ambiance was casual and fun, but quite loud. Not sure it's worth a return visit.

The food was absolutely delicious. I will definitely come back. We were there before covid for a Mother’s Day brunch and then again last night. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place with awesome food. Also, the bus boys were on top of keeping our table clean and available for upcoming food and drinks. Thank you isn’t enough for the service we received.

I love their Ahi Tuna with tempura green beans! It’s so good. I did make a reservation for outside dining but once again, they didn’t have any left so we dined inside but at a lovely boothin the corner. Service was okay but I did have to stir my coffee with the back of a knife even after asking. I totally understand though that servers right now are scarce and really working hard.

We had a waiter named Jeff, who I’ve had once before. He was rude, arrogant and inept. The first time I gave him a pass because anyone can have a bad night. But now that it’s happened twice, I’d like management to know

Always enjoy this restaurant except last visit. We were seated about 15 minutes before I went to hostess for a server. Wasn't busy in the bar area where we were seated. The staff, who were just talking, kept looking over at us and snickering but finally came over. Service got slower. We'll be back because of the food.

First drink was slow but then everything else was really fast and everything tasted great. Plenty of staff so we were always attended to. Very different menu with some surprising choices in a good way.
