The $40 breakfast buffet really doesn’t worth it. Cheap options. So does the drinks. I can order items from the menu till 2:30pm

I was excited to visit Park and Field for a date night unfortunately it didn’t meet our expectations. We got a babysitter to watch kiddos and told our friends to meet us there for dinner and drinks. Mind you we made a reservation online. We got seated outside even though we didn’t requested to be outside. It was starting to rain and we asked what was the plan if it started pouring. They said to run inside if that was the case and she’d close our tab. Ok? The server seemed to be annoyed once we asked to be seated somewhere away from sidewalk. There were a lot of empty tables and the best response was that they were waiting for a table of 18 guests that never showed while we were there. There were toddlers playing next to us which was puzzling since it was a Saturday night past 8pm. Overall I will not come back. Good for a photo op but that is pretty much it.

It was a fun brunch. We were a group of 7 celebrating a bachelorette weekend. Food was ok - nothing was very hot or fresh. Server was not that attentive, we started to help ourselves at the bar. Overall the atmosphere is great, be sure to request a patio table if the weather is nice

It was the Bears first game but it seemed very chaotic and unorganized. Made reservations and we were not by any tv to see the game. Asked to move since there where around 6 other empty tables and were told no. Asked to remove umbrellas that blocked the one tv that was far away and they had to ask a manager. After about 15 minutes of no response we ended up leaving. The staff we talked to were nice but maybe the game caused a lot of this so not sure

It was so nice to relax and enjoy my birthday there! Wish that the music was a little louder and that we would have gotten a long table, but still great? Staff was incredibly nice!!!!

The ambiance is great!

To qualify, we were there for brunch on a Sunday. They have a separate buffet menu from what is on their website between 10:30am and 2:30pm on Saturdays and Sundays. $25 is just food, $40 includes alcoholic drinks. Here are a few things to improve and get 5 stars.

1. I reserved a table for 12 well in advance. Our server seemed to have trouble keeping up with the drinks included in the weekend buffet. Perhaps give your servers fewer tables/people or add more servers.

2. Our table was some chairs around a coffee table. Perhaps I am too traditional, but it would have been nicer to be sitting around an actual table.

3. The English Muffins that you make your Eggs Benedict with for the buffet need to be toasted and you need to include more hollandaise sauce on top. They were soggy and disappointing without the yummy hollandaise sauce to compensate.

Hope this helps!

This was so disappointing!! It was only buffet until 2 pm, that’s ok with us. Everything in the buffet was cold. I repeat, everything. The problem was that it should have been hot. Imagine cold pancakes and cold eggs Benedict. Exactly what you want for breakfast. We were totally bummed out and walked out hungry after paying $80. I would not go back and I would not recommend going either.

We made a reservation to celebrate my Fiancé’s birthday and spoke with management on the phone in regards to bocce court availability. We were told it was on a first come first serve basis, but there shouldn’t be an issue. however when we alll arrived both courts were reserved for another party for the entire evening. Had they been more honest with us,we would have gone elsewhere. Instead, it put a huge damper on our birthday party and made a huge inconvenience for everyone who travel out to this location.

I was very much looking forward to checking out this spot and disappointed all around. I don’t like complaining but I’d warn anyone that thinking going here is worth your time or money.
1. Service was super slow - we did the endless brunch with mimosas (I only had 3 warm mimosas). Surprised you wouldn’t get a caraf for the table instead of them filling your tiny cup..
2. Food quality was poor, not replenished, (especially for the price) and the area was a mess, unsanitary.
3. The tap water tasted like bleach...
4. The bathrooms were pretty gross, not to mention seeing a couple come out of one together...

I wish I was making this up.

The ambience was great. The food was average in taste and required salt. I wanted a different jam then what was offered on the buffet, but they didn’t have any other choices. Seems strange since this is a brunch place. We had to ask the server for more coffee a few times.

Park & Field was amazing for a birthday celebration! We had perfect weather, delicious drinks, great food, and our server Emily couldn't have been any better! She was perfectly attentive and able to easily split the tab as people arrived and left at different times. We had a large group with many kids who loved the bubbles from Emily and space to run around. My only (minor) complaint is that we had requested to be by the bocce but were seated on the other side. Thank you Emily and Park & Field!

We went with a large group on a Saturday night - the food and drinks were wonderful, and the service was great! Our only complain was that at one point a round of drink orders seemed to have gotten lost, so we had to seek out a server and ask again. This was a very busy night, though, so it's easy to understand how this happened. Highly recommend!

It was pouring rain and we had to sit outside and their credit card machine broke so we were delayed for our next appointment and had to rush to ATM, etc. and I think they should have comped something for that experience but they didn’t...but we still had a good time and we loved our waitress Emily!

It was the worst brunch experience ever. Service was bad from arrival to when we left. The coffee and drinks took very long to bring out. Our server forgot one of drinks, brought coffee with spoiled milk. Our server was a rude and not helpful.

Went here for date night to enjoy the patio and the atmosphere is just adorable. Sat around the massive fire pits and had dinner and drinks. The buddha bowl is fantastic and I would highly recommend it ! Our server Emily was just the sweetest and very attentive.

I’ve been to Park and Field several times and love to go for their weekend brunch. I went there with a sizeable group (14). The staff was wonderful and welcoming from the start. I had made my reservation through the OpenTable app and after making the reservation, needed to add two people. Park and Field was more than welcome to accommodate us. The buffet is a great touch with lots of wonderful food to please every palate. Additionally, they are always ready to give you a refill or help you out in any other way. I was particularly impressed this time around as a major storm blew through the area (black skies, winds, downpours, etc). The team was a well oiled machine in evacuating the patio and getting people situated inside the bar itself. You can always count me in for a get together at Park and Field!
