This was our first visit and we will definitely be back! They did a great job adapting to the outdoor dining directive. Our burgers were outstanding! Messy but so worth it. Service was excellent, tent was nice, staff was friendly and obviously happy to be back at work. We look forward to going back and dining inside when we are able. Highly recommend!

Neat is back and almost there! The drinks were a bit thin and the steak is gone from the menu, but otherwise, the food was solid as was the service. The Prime Rib sandwich was much spicier than expected so be careful. We will go back as this is one of the better options in the suburbs.

I highly recommend the sandwiches but was disappointed with the Cobb Salad with blackened chicken. Salad was small for a meal size lunch with very few tiny pieces of blackened chicken.

Order the grilled cheese or a burger instead.

The restaurant got very high reviews so we were looking forward to it. Even with a reservation we still waited at least 15 minutes and it’s a small place with no place to sit to wait.
After we were seated the staff was very nice. I had a burger and my husband had the wings and chili. He said the chili was great but the wings were overcooked. My burger was just okay. Actually not very flavorful.
The service and atmosphere were good but I wudnt make the trip for the food

My wife ordered the Garden & Grain salad with shrimp and said it was very good. I ordered the chicken tacos and I got 3 mini tacos. What a disappointment! The menu should indicate they are not full size tacos but rather very small mini tacos. I don't think you can buy those mini shells in the store.

You are greeted with a smile and everyone treats you like you are a guest in their own home. Service was spectacular. The green chili soup had a wonderful flavor, although I would have liked it a tad hotter as it came luke warm. We split our sandwiches and when they were served the kitchen had put a half of each sandwich on each plate. Shows the staff was really listening to us when we ordered. The food was good and they had a wide variety of beers to choose from. Overall if we decide to go out for a burger Neat will be a top choice!!

Excellent experience at Neat Kitchen + Bar last Wednesday night! Great atmosphere, service and the food was AMAZING!!
We started out with the Neat Board appetizer and some wine. Very tasty!
For dinner I had the short rib grilled cheese with the truffle fries. It was delicious. The $2 upgrade for the truffle fires was well worth it. Burgers were very fresh and tasty, too. We will definitely be back soon.

This was a 90th birthday party for a very special family friend. I went to Neat and asked if I could see where we might be seated. The staff was SO helpful and enthusiastic from the start. They assured me that I could decorate the table and they would do everything to make it a great experience. And they did not disappoint!!!
The food was amazing and the service was so attentive. I brought a cake and wacky decorations and everything was welcomed . Our waiter, Patrick, kept asking if he could help me. It was so nice!

Both the manager and our waiter acknowledged the Guest of Honor by name. It was BEYOND!!
I knew in choosing Neat Kitchen + Bar that I would have a good experience.... but they hit it out of the park. I will be recommending this restaurant to anyone I know!
Don't go to a mall restaurant....the local ones treat you so much better !!

We booked our reservation thru Open Table and it was flawless. Table was waiting for us at 6:30 pm on New Year Eve ! Place was packed but noise was average and not an issue. Our server Daniel was great and though drink service was a tad slow we were not surprised. It was New Year Eve 😂. We had the meat and cheese board and it was super! Filled with a variety of items to please everyone. My short rib was absolutely delicious and filled with subtle flavors. Very generous portions all around too . My wife is a French Onion guru and she loved it. Service was excellent and well staffed. Friendly and welcoming staff and front desk which is just what one expects at a local establishment like this. A true gem and we will absolutely go back! We had a great time with good food. Nuff said!

This was our third time coming and won't be our last! Service was great, atmosphere was great, food was great! All great things. Only thing that bothered me this time was that it was my second time getting the brisket grilled cheese...the first time it was AMAZING...so I was expecting the same thing...This time it was dry and not made with love! Little disappointing but it won't keep me from coming back!

We enjoyed our Saturday night dinner at Neat Kitchen + Bar. Food was outstanding as usual. The gluten free hamburger bun was a standout...best restaurant gluten free hamburger bun! Service was good and the waiter was vey helpful, but we waited a longer than normal time for our meal to be prepared. The restaurant was very busy so the kitchen must have been backed up. Anyway, we always enjoy and recommend the Neat Kitchen + Bar.
