Parking is a challenge for this restaurant and quality food would be the next challenge. We went during happy hour - which was a good thing since the drinks are not bad for the amount, flavor and price. The service we had was very good (Great Bartendar!!) but we noticed not everyone was getting that same level of service and it appeared to be a "short staff" problem brewing while we were there. The food - we ordered a variety of appetizers - was average to low average at best. We won't be going back for the food.

I went to Edgar's two days ago with some coworkers. We ordered easy fare, some sandwiches, shrimp soup and key lime pie. Our server did not check back with us and we noticed that customers who came in after us either had their food or were already done. We asked for someone to send our server to us so we could find out a status on our lunch. We all needed to get back to the office. Our server came to our table and told us with a huff that he didn't know what the kitchens problem was and apologized for the delay. Then he left and never checked back with us. We again flagged another server to fetch our bill for us. Our server did give us each a coupon for a free drink at some point without us requesting an amenity. All in all, the food was good, but the gruff server was not. We'd probably go back one more time with hopes of improvement.
