    The food was horrible. The pizza has a chalky after taste. The Mac and cheese was horrible; wasn’t southern style at all. The Buffalo wings were okay. The Caesar dressing for the salad was horrible as well. Even my Ginger Ale was flat. Definitely will not be coming back and will not recommend this place.

    Made a reservation through OpenTable. Took the train into the city, showed up at the designated time and the restaurant was closed. No update on social media. Not even a sign on the door. Had to wander the neighborhood with my family looking for another place to have dinner.

    This place has really improved! My old fashioned was great, the kids meal was a total slam dunk. They even have plates shaped liked kids plates with a full size apple juice, apple sauce, carrot ribbons and great chicken fingers and tater tots for $9. The club was good as well as the smash burger. We will be back!

    Generous portions of perfectly cooked comfort foods. I had the Bicycle Burger with the tots. The bar keep was super attentive. Our server was top notch. This is a great find for Buckeye fans (which I am not). Be ready to have to shout your whole conversation if it's a game night.

    Six of us went for brunch. We were seated immediately and our waitress was friendly and excellent. The food itself was pretty "meh." Particularly several of us had the smash burger. They were miniature hockey pucks, overcooked and about 2" in diameter. They were half the size of the buns. On a positive note, sweet potato fries were really good. I'd go back for the drinks since the ambiance is fun, but I'll eat elsewhere.

    Was decent overall, once we were seated at the table, it took 15-20 minutes before a server came to take our orders, but they made up for it by covering our first round. The overall atmosphere was chill, and the food was great!

    We dined outside. Their sidewalk patio is on a side street, so the ambiance is nice and the noise level was reasonable. The service (including water service) was very prompt and attentive. They had clean restrooms with motion sensors installed on the sinks, soap dispenser, and hand dryer. We will definitely come here again.

    The server was very nice and mostly attentive, but forgot to bring a glass (plastic cup) for my beer. The margarita was good. The queso fundido was very good, but the sloppy joe was disappointing - too much bun, not enough sloppy joe, which tasted good, but there was not nearly enough of it. The cardboard baskets are the flimsiest containers I have ever eaten from - to the point where they distracted from the meal. Also, the area outside is not really configured for 4 people - the most you can seat comfortably at those tables is 3, and they are really only meant for two. I know they are doing their best in these difficult times, but this was a really significant drop in eating experience relative to my other three eating occasions pre-COVID. Also, please bring back the Brussel sprout salad - that was sorely missed.

    We really wanted to like this. The menu listed on Opentable was different than the one at the restaurant. This one significantly smaller and less interesting to us. They were just opening after COVID, and tired to be helpful and nice, but have their act together yet. Wait times were long and food was not impressive. We liked their beer choices. Heard it was a new chef, but our choices were not good.

    I don’t know what is going on with this place. I made a reservation and went to the restaurant and they literally weren’t open. Lights off, no one there. Google says they are open, Open Table says there are open. They weren’t. I called the phone number and it just rang and never hit an answering machine. I think this place is closed. I don’t know how I was able to make a reservation. I was meeting a friend and I asked her if I had the wrong date or I just didn’t pull the door open hard enough. She confirmed. There was no one there. Super weird!

    Not sure what's going on with their brunch, but they need to get it together. There was only one other table there the whole time we were there and it still took FOREVER to get our food. The server/bartender was great, but the kitchen was having some serious issues. When we finally got our food, it wasn't very good & there were some mistakes. It's weird because the only other time I've been there was for dinner and it was a delicious, normal-paced meal.

    I had been to Tricycle many times before and it was a local, casual favorite. This time however I was disappointed. Perhaps there is a new chef, but what we ordered was not prepared as it had been in the past. The chicken pot pie, my husbands favorite, went from being served in a large bowl, deconstructed style, to being served in a small bowl, dry, and with less flavor. The brussel sprout caesar, usually made with shaved sprouts, came with big pieces of raw sprouts that made it cumbersome to eat. Last, the braised pork shank, which in the past was fall off the bone tender and amazing, was super dry and difficult to eat. We will try again, but hope this feedback will help them go back to the food they used to prepare.
