“Consistent”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

The food is always good, but this place is always crowded. Service can be friendly. or no descript, as "Fan" servers think since they work in "The Fan", they are the star of the business, not the food. I would not recommend families, it' more a bar.

“consistent little neighborhood bar and restaurant”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

I've been going here for years. The staff is friendly and the food is always consistent. It is good and there are always some specials. If you prefer quaint establishments to the chain restaurants, this is a good choice.

“Neat little place”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

Small, unique spot for a drink or food. Nothing fancy, but the omelet and potatoes for brunch were really pretty good.

“Pleasantly Surprised”
Reviewed 21 August 2012

As a frequent diner at Avalon, I've walked by this place numerous times always telling my wife that we should go sometime.. So one Friday night (which is my night to do dinner) I decided to give Bamboo Cafe a try. When we arrived we were seated quickly, not being real hungry we decided to order off the sandwich portion of the menu. As a hamburger lover, there was doubt what I was having. My wife ordered the steak sandwich... with onion rings instead of the fries that came with it. The burger was cooked perfectly as ordered and was extremely tasty. My wife's sandwich was the clear winner. A nicely cooked and seasoned rib-eye steak not the chopped stuff that you usually get. The onion rings were delicious, nicely battered not greasy at all. We washed it down with a couple Bells drafts. The entrees specials for the evening sounded great and smelled even better when they were brought to the table next to us. We will definitely be back to try some of the entrees. The prices were very reasonable. Service was excellent.. Glad we got there when we did, since people werer waiting at the bar and outside for tables.
