    We stopped in for drinks and a few snacks. We really enjoyed the Bloody Mary and deviled eggs. We sat outside under a heater and it was windy but we were warm enough. Savanah, our server, was delightful and made great menu suggestions. We'll be back.

    It was an amazing evening. The music was fantastic. The food was perfection. And our server, Eric, was so much fun. He was helpful with us at our table ordering for our small children and the food was fast and fantastic. Cannot wait to go again.

    Hands down one of my favorite OTR restaurants. The food is generally classic diner fare, but highly elevated. There is not a bad thing on the menu, the atmosphere is groovy and the music is always on point. Maya was perfect as our server. Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

    I was very excited as we made a reservation to celebrate an important accomplishment, but we were very disappointed with the food quality and the portions. We ordered fries with lobster gravy, but the fries were fried in oil that had been overused. Cheese curds did not taste like anything. We could smell the burnt taste of the starter. The entries were even worse. We ordered dirty french and gnocchi with black garlic butter. I believe they used low-quality liquid butter in food, making both foods very heavy but not filling. All we could taste was high sodium liquid butter on everything. The waitress was lovely and seemed very knowledgeable about the menu. But, I could tell our celebration was ruined due to this low-quality food.

    I have until this last visit told everyone that Sacred Beast has the best cheeseburgers in town . Unfortunately the one I ordered yesterday was too salty and overall not of the caliber I have enjoyed in the past. Hoping this was just a glitch and that I will be able to enjoy the cheeseburger there again soon.

    Our family had a beautiful Sunday afternoon dining outside at Sacred Beast! The food is delicious every time! Their deviled eggs sprinkled with pork rinds are a must, and our boys especially liked the unique hashbrowns. My husband and I both had the brown butter salmon, which is always divine.

    Outrageous how delish the breakfast was! The cortado was perfection and I lived in Miami and never had such a wonderful cortado. The Cincinnati sausage was soooo good! Scrambled eggs were also amazing! Not a bad item on our plates! Going back for the ricotta pancakes! What a gem!

    My salmon was almost raw and my waitperson was so busy that when she returned to check on my my fish was cold. I ordered deviled eggs and they never arrived. When I was asked about dessert I asked about the deviled eggs and the eggs arrived and we ate them for dessert. Was going to a concert so I appreciated the prompt service but kinda but a damper on what I hoped was going to be a great evening.

    Have never had a bad meal here--it's always very good and we're often surprised with a new flavor or take. Best omelette in town? Can't go wrong at SB. Nice outdoor seating area, which we prefer.

    Food was delicious but atmosphere was like a bar/coffee shop. Price of food did not match overall dining feel/experience. Servers dressed extremely casually and a bit slow also did not match price I was paying for meal.

    Absolutely delicious! My husband and I went to Sacred Beast for the first time to celebrate our anniversary and were blown away by the offerings. We had the deliver eggs (amazing), the steak tartare with fries (so decadent!), the Dirty French burger (fantastic), and the Neckbone Gravy (one of the best things we ever eaten). The cocktails were phenomenal, the service was top notch, and the atmosphere was perfect. We will be back soon and hopefully often.

    We were there early, so staff were very attentive. Food Excellent, asked if we had any food allergies they should know about. The manager (I think) brought my drink and was asking us questions, when she found out it was our first time, we talked extensively about how we liked the food ( she knew exactly what we had ordered) We will definitely go back

    My boyfriend and I had dinner around 5:30 pm on a Friday night. We were seated by the window, which overlooks their patio, which is beautifully decorated with plants! We ordered two cocktails, I chose the Orange Cream Soda, which was good, but would be even more awesome with the breakfast food they serve. I ordered the Gnocchi with Black Garlic Butter. It was divine and I ate it right up. My boyfriend had the Chili Crunch Chicken. He liked it a lot, but noted that it is spicy. We will definitely be back to try the breakfast menu, which is always available! Thanks for the great dining experience.

    Love, love, love the atmosphere. Great first time meal. The open kitchen is always a welcome site. We shared the wedge and the Crispy Chicken. The wedge was perfect but the star of the evening was the pickled vegetables on the chicken dish. Keep up the creatively.

    Waited 45 minutes for a hamburger and sandwich. When we inquired about it to the manager he was rude and disrespectful. Obviously they do not value our patronage and we won’t be going back soon. Customer service is not a priority.
