    For some reason, service has kinda dropped off everywhere post pandemic. its like theres been this general decline across the board where because we’ve been scared and behind masks, we are 15% less helpful in our interactions. MB Post is the exception. The staff was fantastic and the food was sublime. They initially had my date and me booked for a table that was in a more noisy area and i asked if i could move somewhere else that would allow for better conversation. I recognize I’m the annoying one in that situation but they quickly accommodated and put us in a quieter spot. They came and checked on us. They made recommendations. The food was incredible and brought out in courses for a reasonable price. We got up to leave and the staff that was closing up wished us a pleasant night. They truly understand that they are creating an EXPERIENCE rather than serving food. Thank you.

    I’ve been here a few times and remembering really enjoying the food, but yesterday was extremely disappointing. I opted for outdoor seating because of the nice weather, but the tent was very hot without airflow and we were battling the flies all meal. Some tables had the flyswatters but ours did not and they were very bothersome. We ordered the famous biscuits which was delicious and the only thing we liked. For our meals my spouse had the chimichanga and I opted for the burger. My burger came out almost 10 minutes after my husband’s food. I told him not to wait for my meal as I didn’t want his chimichanga to get soggy. However, when my burger came out it was sitting in grease. It was so heavy that the bottom bun disintegrated and I couldn’t even finish my food. Although not stated, the food came with no sides, unless you count a handful of plain arugula a side. My husband also commented the pork in his chimichanga was very greasy, but otherwise good flavor with large portion size. We only ordered ice teas, but it would have been nice to be told they were bottled and non refillable. At the end of the meal, our check slowly came out which we were double charged for everything. We were waiting so long for the waiter to come back to fix it, that our two hour meter almost ran out. Honest mistake, but still annoying considering we were one of the last tables out there in the post-lunch rush. Such a shame because I do have good memories of the meals at this place. However, I think we will be trying other restaurants when we’re in town.

    I have already been a big fan of MB post and had gone for dinner many times. This was my first time having lunch. It was a little underwhelming compared my other dinner experiences here. I had a fried chicken sandwich and the breading was bland. The side order of pork sausage patty for my toddler was undercooked and too much spice. I will come back again, but probably not for brunch.

    Absolutely delicious food - so fun to negotiate with your companion about which dishes to order and share. We chose the biscuits, Little Gem and plum salad, spicy green beans and grilled skirt steak. Excellent and inventive. Truly outstanding service, too, from everyone. Next time though, I think we’ll choose to eat outside for a cooler, quieter and less crowded experience.

    This place isn’t what it used to be after the pandemic. Food is overpriced and so is their wine list. $27 for 4 tiny slices of meat and broccoli. Used to served in a skillet and seasoned well . Now on a large plate where the portion is so small, the food looks like it’s art. The fries were terrible compared to what they served before. And I remember because the fries were my favorite there. Why did they close up the doors in the front? Did the owners change??? Terrible, won’t be going back.

    After more than 10 times having dinner here, I’m sad to say that last nights dinner really missed the mark. The one positive was the manager who was sympathetic and tried to make things right! Everything else (yes, everything) was a MISS! I miss the old MBPost

    Food was great and the service was really good too. It was just so loud my husband and I had a hard time having a conversation. I think part of it was we were at a small table in the middle of the room surround by larger tables.

    We say outside and there were tons of flies. Very annoying. They should get those table fans like Hook and plow have. We were there for brunch. I don't think the food was as good as the last time i was there. I had the Corn beef hash and not much meat. A lot of fat. Flat steak perfectly cooked and spiced. Love the bacon and of course the muffins are to die for.

    We've been here a couple of times pre-pandemic, and remember really liking the food here. However, this time the food was disappointing. My salad was drenched in dressing with very little (and limpy) greens. My friends' dishes all looked better than they tasted. We were also seated outside so we constantly had to swat flies away from our food. It ruined the appetite and mood to be quite honest. The dining experience just wasn't as pleasant as I remember it to be.

    Great foodie place and very expensive. Worth it if you have the greenbacks. Servers are terrific and work together, so if you haven't seen your guy in a while, other ones will order food for you. We ordered yummy cheeses and duck prosciutto and pork/elk salami, which was amazing, with a blueberry finish. Tomato/peach heirloom salad was amazing, but could have used some heat, even black pepper could have raised the bar. Place was slammed and extremely noisy as there is no carpeting. Ceiling baffles would really help here. I don't know how the servers could hear, as it was REALLY loud.
