I don't usually "re-review" a restaurant, but with Tin Roof Bistro, it is a necessity because they keep raising their own bar of excellence. I met their new GM Aaron Garisek this past December when I called to find out when I could drop by to purchase some Christmas gift cards. Aaron answered, and even though it was in the... More

Met friends there. It was very busy but we had a reservation and were seated right away. Service was good, friendly and efficient. Food was great. We had scallops with risotto, Brussels sprout appetizer, pear and Gorgonzola salad and a meat entree. All were perfectly cooked and beautifully plated.

Large portions of comfort food. Outside patio seating very desirable. Pizzas and burgers very popular.

We had reservations for ten.There were people waiting. We waited a reasonable ten minutes to be seated. The menu is standard American variety but there are Nightly Features daily. The Firecracker Shrimp, Calamari, and Butternut Squash Hummus appetizers were excellent. The beer and wine list are varied. We tried some locally brewed beers. Three persons delivered all our food so... More

We arrived with a reservation and were kept waiting for half an hour, promised 'the next table after this one' and watched them seat two groups before us. We left. We won't be back.

Stayed across the street in the Belamar Hotel. The hotel recommended this spot for dinner. I could not think them enough. Sat on the back patio (heated) which was decorated for the holidays. Food was awesome, had the Firecracker Shrimp appetizer and fish and chips. Service was great too. Found nothing to complain about here.

If you are staying at the belamar hotel, this is just across the road and recommended by the concierge. Standard American fare but quality very good. I had the burger and chocolate mouse. Cocktails excellent and reasonably priced even with the horrible sterling to US dollar exchange rate.

When Tin Roof opened, it was my favorite, up until summer it has still be a go to favorite of mine. However, recently, the service is slipping. The personal feelings are not there. The service with a smile is disappearing. And it is causing other defaults to expose themselves. Yesterday we were there for early lunch. I asked for espresso,... More

I came here for my husbands birthday this past november for the first time with a group of 8. I had only read the reviews and saw pictures and thought I'd give it ago. I wasn't disappointed, the ambiance was so romantic, kind of a warm rustic vibe, the service was amazing and EVERYBODY loved their food. I got the... More
