Sometimes you get lucky and have an excellent meal here. But don’t count on it. Breakfast, lunch, dinner are all plagued by uneven food quality and service. The kitchen is very slow, even when the restaurant is mostly empty.

Changed 3 course dinner not for the better. Entree went from skirt steak to inedible tough London broil. Dessert choice went from cake to ice cream. 8 oz. pour not even close. Even for charity not a $45 meal.

I had dinner at 30Boltwood with a group of people for a work event. We sat at a long table, thus while it wasn't possible to converse with everyone attending, it was very comfortable and good for small conversations. The food was very good and...More
