The food itself was good and the service was fine. But please wear masks! A bartender was literally serving drinks with his mask off to people at the bar.

The food was amazing, the workers nice, clean bathrooms, and visually the place is nice. The water is close by too so perfect for a date.

The restaurant was very busy, I was say at the bar. The waiter never checked back in after the food came out. Every time I wanted something else I had to flag a staff member down. I wanted to put in an additional order and let my server know, didn’t see him for 15+ minutes after my request. I waited and waited, I asked the hostess if she could send the server to the table, only to be told my server had left for the day. No other staff took over my table, it was not communicated that my server was leaving and I was left waiting for service for a substantial amount of time.

The inside was packed to capacity and it started to get really loud so we picked a perfect dining time. We were done as it started ramping up. Service was normal, and food was fresh and tasty.

I love this place, the decor and the food. The people are great. But, I notice that when I'm here for holidays even pre-COVID, there always seems to be crazy delays at the bar. This didn't change with being there for Easter lunch. We waited a long time for our drinks to come and I don't know why they don't increase staff when they know they will have lot of people. It's pretty frustrating and it's a loss in profit. People are drinking less when they don't even get their first round till after the appetizers come out. It has happened before, way before COVID. Bad planning or scheduling or something.

My boyfriend and I live down the block from Amelia’s, and we go there frequently. We always have a great experience here - the staff are attentive and friendly, the food is always great, and there is a variety of options for whatever you are in the mood for. They also have great drink deals for brunch.

Amelia’s is wonderful. They keep some long time staples, but frequently add new items on the menu as well. It’s the right mix of reassurance and novelty.

Great brunch spot, we just didn’t have a good experience with our waitress which is the only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars but would definitely go back and recommend it to others! Loved the price of the mimosas and bloody Mary’s.

The food was terrible. Chicken was extremely dry. Shrimp appetizer had no taste. I’m not sure how this place has good reviews. Very disappointing. Was over priced with poor quality. Change you chef please. The only good dish was the shrimp penne. We can make better food at home!!!
