    Great food. Server was very nice and helpful with menu suggestions. Had to ask for refills and once we had our food she didn’t pay much attention to us. She was too busy rolling silverware.

    The service was exceptional. We were there with our one-year-old who can be a bit loud. We were able to sit outside which helped us feel less self-conscious when she turned it up a bit. We were made to feel very welcome, and the staff were really attentive. The food was excellent, and it was great to be able to try something different that other places don’t have. I would definitely recommend!

    I'm a huge Oak City Meatball fan! My wife, less of a meatball fan in general. But even she walked away saying her food was great and she enjoyed the restaurant. I will say that it is on the individual to pick the right combination of meatball, sauce, and side, but it's hard to goof it up. Highly recommend!

    Paid $80 for cheese curds, 6 meatballs, an order of Mac-n-cheese and 2 tiny cocktails. Def not a good value - could have gone to cafe Luna and paid the same amount to not feel like we were eating bar food crammed against the window beside the host station.

    We had a great experience with our server, Carter. We walked in a few minutes before our reservation and were seated immediately. We had prompt and efficient service. Carter was polite and warm while being timely and unobtrusive. We had a gathering of 6 people and shared appetizers. He kept our orders and our billing accurate without correction. We were all quite impressed with the service and the food. The food was fantastic and exactly what we wanted. The experience was superb and we will definitely be back.

    This was our second time eating here. We were seated quickly and waters were on the table right away and drink orders taken. Our waitress was friendly and helpful making recommendations on what to eat. We ordered the mozzarella bread as an appetizer, it came out fresh and hot and was very good. I got the traditional balls with meat sauce over smashed potatoes, My wife got the checking and bacon ball sandwich with a side of mac n cheese. The food came out quickly and was very good. The mac n cheese was HUGE and very cheesy, it was also steaming hot. The only negative thing was our entrees weren't hot, they weren't cold, but nowhere near as hot as the mac n cheese which my wife burnt her mouth on. We will make another trip here when in the mood for meatballs.
