    service was great. Server was very attentive and personable Food, unfortunately was bland and under seasoned. The brussels sprouts appetizer was setting in grease and had very little flavor I always return to a restaurant for a second chance on the off chance it was just "a bad day in the kitchen". That being said I cannot recommend Chuck Lager's to friends at this time and hope for a better experience in the future

    Very disappointing. The menu was not at all cohesive. Stick to Italian or stick to Mexican or stick to comfort food. Drinks were a joke. Ordered a Manhattan for $14, got a shot of bourbon with a big square ice cube. It was NOT a Manhattan! It was a shot with an ice cube. Appetizers came to table before r drinks ever did. So disappointing. No presentation of food. Mediocre at best. Typical bar food that u can get anywhere but for a lot less. And they put tin on the ceiling so everyone was shouting at each other cuz they couldn't hear. It was loud! Service, food & ambiance very subpar. We had bigger expectations knowing that Fabio was a part of this franchise but we were sadly dissappointed. Don't waste ur $ or time.

    What a great way to start the weekend. The food was amazing, especially the wedge salad and the Cubano sandwich. The beer was amazing. The restaurant has a hip vibe to it but it’s great to see all ages enjoying it. We plan to add this to our list of go-back-tos!

    We went in on a Sunday at noon and were seated in the bar area. There were a few bar guests , but it wasn’t that crowded. We waited 20 minutes before are server greeted us to take our drink order. We ordered the pretzel as an appetizer and it really had no flavor at all. For our main meal I ordered the chicken Blat sandwich. I asked for it with no cheese and it of course came out with cheese. Since our server barely checked on us, I couldn’t find her to alert her so I just ate it. It was a sloppy sandwich and wasn’t that good. I also hate cheese, so that could have added to me disliking the flavor. My boyfriend got the shrimp tacos . He liked them, but the serving was so small for what they charge. After we were done eating, we sat there for about another 20 or so before we were even checked on again. We ordered the cheesecake (super small) to go, and I also handed are server a coupon that she said she needed to get her managers approval on. She never came back. Thankfully the gentleman who ran out our cheesecake was able to assist . The bill was $66 and honestly not worth it. I worked in a restaurant for 10 years so I understand getting in the weeds , but the the length of time we waited is pretty unacceptable. I wanted to try it out, and I can say I won’t be going back or recommending.

    We made a reservation for 7:15. We were not seated until 7:30. We ordered drinks and a pretzel right when we sat down, our drinks were not correct and we never got our pretzel. It appears that there is not enough staff and service is taking a toll. I understand the labor market issues but for right now I feel that perhaps take less reservations and keep some tables open in order for staff to be able to properly service your patrons.

    Jenny was our server, and she was wonderful! Extremely kind, attentive, knowledgeable of the menu and has a warm demeanor and a beautiful smile as she greeted our table. That was the best part of the evening, but some of the downfalls included no hot water in the woman’s bathroom, the lights in the entire restaurant kept going off and the chicken marsala came out with only three mushrooms on the whole dish. No bread offered at the beginning of our meal and nothing brought to the table for your birthday which are two small things I would expect for the prices on the menu.

    I was pleasantly surprised with Chuck Lagers after reading bad reviews on Google. The food was good for OP which is just filled with chain after chain. The service was great. The food and drink portions are small and over priced. I ordered a punch which i believe was $12. It came in a small glass with a giant ice cube. I know the giant ice cubes are "fancy", but not when it's 90% of your $12 drink. Also, the restaurant is LOUD! You can barely hear the person sitting across from you. I had a coupon and wouldn't come back here unless I had another discount.

    Had reservations for party of 6 at 1:00pm for birthday lunch. Wait time after ordering food was long. Then food came after about 30 minutes and we never received our 2 appetizers. Server was great but not attentive, we could tell she was overwhelmed with several tables and not much help. She mentioned chef was in the back filming. I ordered shrimp tacos but tasted nothing but corn. Opened it up to see 1 shrimp cut in 3 pieces among a bed of corn. My first time visiting expectations were very high. Needless to say I never have to go back there ever.

    Great service. Wait staff were excellent. Ordered the brisket grilled cheeses. There may have been ~ 2 oz of smoked brisket total and the flavor was drowned out by the cheese. Sweet potato fries were thick cut and tasted good but we're very very greasy. Nice atmosphere for lunch. Really good service. Disappointing value.

    We had a very nice server. She did a good job. The food and drinks were good, not exceptional. However they were very expensive and the portions and sizes of the meals and drinks were very small for the prices. My $12 glass of wine could not have been even 6oz in the tiny glass they used. The sliver of cake we took home for $9 was shockingly small. My daughter ordered the brisket grilled cheese. The menu said it came with chips and a tomato soup but you could order fries for $2 instead of chips. We changed the chips to fries. They brought the sandwich and fries but no soup. The server said she substituted the fries for the soup, and never mentioned the chips. I asked if there was a charge. She said no. The check came, they charged us $2 for the fries as an upgrade. I asked her about this and said they never brought the soup at all and referred to the menu and what she told us earlier. She came back and apologized and said she was wrong. She didn’t offer to fix the check. I assumed this was because it was a new place and they are still learning things. I decided we needed to leave and not keep asking for the $2. But the overall check for a family dinner for two kids and two adults was over $120.00, for which I had higher expectations for the quality of food, portions, and correct billing of items.

    The food was very good, all of it. However, it felt overpriced for the quantity. Service was slow. It was very loud inside, so hard to have a conversation. Also, I know it is a beer kind of place, but the wine selection was sub-par. Overall over-priced good food with slow service.

    Pretty good actually. I had no expectations but this place turned out to be great! The Candied Walnut salad and the Sesame Ginger salad was really tasty. The dressing was delicate and not overpowering. We tried the ravioli dish and it was also good. Bonus is the Poke! With black rice! The limoncello cake was very good as well our group had to fight for every bite! This place takes reservations (which is rare in the burbs)

    I would definitely recommend this place. The food was outstanding and very flavorful. The only that I’d like them to improve on is the customer service. Don’t get me wrong the staff was very friendly, it was the timing of our waitress checking to see if we needed anything could have been more frequent. Other than that, everything was on point. Would highly recommend and we will return.

    Very nice decor. Food was good but we requested gluten free options. Menu was not clearly marked and waitress was not knowledgeable and didn’t offer someone who was knowledgeable in selecting gluten free items of their menu. We ended up sick from the food.

    1. They got rid of the stuffed baked potato I was looking forward to have that. It’s no longer on the menu. 2. The rewards program is still not working I have been there three times and have not gotten any credit for my meals. Total $300.99+ dollar. Same excuse from the last time we were there location not set up. 3. The service was very good . 4. Our appetizer came out after the main dishes.

    The food was not bad, but at the same time, not memorable. Our waitress spent her time talking with another table. My wife finished her glass of wine early on, and never had an opportunity to order another, as the waitress did not come by to offer another. Which was actually a good thing, seeing that the charge of $12 for a very small glass of generic wine was ridiculous. We left from there and had drinks and desert at local brewery at a far better price with friends. This is just our opinion, other people may have better service and not mind the cost.

    Chuck Lager’s America’s tavern was a high-spirited, upgraded dinner out. We enjoyed our meals, meatball sandwich and chicken Marsala. The food was cooked well and was very flavorful. It was a good time to go out, between Christmas and New Years. We were impressed, and I will be back for sure!
