    Great date night on Mass Street! I ordered the filet and it was cooked perfectly and my date ordered the halibut and it was set in a creamed corn puree that was delightfully yummy (I had to steal a couple of bites!) The menu items are all ordered a la carte. There is also a good cocktail menu. We chose to sit in the bar area that was more lively than the dining side.

    Good food, very good service. Quiet, nice atmosphere. Went to have the steak, as they had a full menu of steak types. I had the Delmonico (purists might descibe Delomonico as a loin cut, in this case, it was a thicker rib eye, which was fine), and my wife had the standard ribeye. My wife's ribeye was on the thin side, about an inch thick, so I would definitely recommend the Delmonico, which was about 1-1/2"thick. The rub on the Delmonico was a little too salty. Both were topped with butter. No other sauces for the steak. Aside from the heavy salt, the steaks were both cooked properly (med rare) and tasted very good. Green beans and grilled asparagus were both very good, as was the beet and arugula salad. Overall good meal.

    Went on Mother's Day, limited menu, makes sense, easier to get food out in a more timely fashion. Food came out luke warm, eggs benedict were not warm, chicken from chicken and waffles was tough and rubbery. I totally understand the limited menu, but then you expect food to come out as advertised. Was not worth the price. Service was good.

    Portions are on the small side for American restaurants. The stuffed chicken, about a quarter of a breast, was supposed to be stuffed with spinach, but no spinach was in evidence. Service was good on the whole, but when a server dropped our bottle of wine on the floor they were not too quick to tell us they would comp the wine. Overall, it is mediocre compared to nearby fine dining, like 715, Merchants, Fish House.

    I had booked a reservation for Easter for my family, including my 90 year old mom, to make it special. It was a disappointment to say the least. Seating was quick and that was the only time during the 2 hours we were there that anything was done well. The restaurant wasn't overly crowded and our server didn't seem to be overbooked but we had one issue after another. It was a prix fixe menu which we expected, but you would think that the food would be better than average. The lobster bisque was good. The salads, which you couldn't get anything other than ranch, were mostly lettuce, a couple of small tomatoes and a cucumber. Lackluster. My sea bass was raw. I had to send it back. One of the lamb chops was underdone and chewy. Everything was lukewarm aside from the second fish that replaced the raw one. Desserts, when we got them after flagging down someone who wasn't our server since she disappeared for most of the service, were good. Our salad and soup plates were not removed so we had dirty plates all through lunch. Our drinks were not topped off, water and coffee. I had to ask for a second cup of coffee. I didn't want to make a scene since I was with my mom and trying to make the best of the meal and just enjoy the company as we hadn't seen family since November. I chose to pay for everyone as I felt embarrassed to have picked the restaurant and have my family pay $50+ for each plate. $300 for Easter lunch could have been better spent somewhere else.

    Lovely restaurant in Lawrence. Drinks and service were excellence. Burger and pasta were yummy too. We had 2 salads too which tasted very good, however I think very salad should be a chopped salad;-). Those pieces of arugula can be tricky to eat politely!.

    Went for restaurant week and although it was not offered up right away we asked for the special menu. We had looked at prior online and pretty much knew that we wanted. The Sirloin was very good and cooked as requested. The lemon sole was very delicious- my wife was very satisfied with her choice. Our server was new- and mentioned that - but she did a very nice job, and we were very satisfied overall with the experience. The Eldridge House Grille is inside the Eldridge House Hotel, and we look forward to another visit and next time we plan to stay at the Hotle. I would recommend when in Lawrence. The Bar area was separate, and it was hopping.

    We had a delicious dinner! My husband enjoyed a Restaurant Week special with a beautiful salad, steak and a peanut butter cup for dessert. I had a wonderful beet salad and SENSATIONAL halibut. We felt like going on a little outing; so, we drove from KC to Lawrence for the evening. The Eldridge was a great pick!

    The service is what made it great- plus it was a good cup of coffee after a fun night keeping up with our Jayhawk. Boys liked their breakfast burger. We had gone to the bar there the night before and the bartenders were personable and the drinks were solid.

    We did their Valentines Dinner and loved the experience. The live music and atmosphere was perfect. Our server was kind, attentive, and great. The only downside to the service was that we often felt rushed by the next course coming out before we’d made progress eating the last. The only downside to the food was that the portions were maybe a little small for price. Aside from that, it was great!

    We made a rsvp for Valentine's dinner at The Eldridge. We paid $51 per person, which isn't that big of a deal, I know it was a special occasion. The waitress was very nice, I gave service just 3 stars because I had to constantly ask for my water to be filled, which I don't think should happen whether you paid $10 or $50 for your meal.

    Everything was great..except the chopped salad was very “wimpy”. Imagine that there was a great deal made ahead of time but by the time it was served at the 7:30 time it was wilted. But the filet mignon and sides and the desserts made up for it!

    The service was horrible. I did not get what I ordered and they charged me anyways. When I brought it to the waitress attention she said “she would check with her manager to see if she could take it off!” What I’m the world…I didn’t order it, why they be mad I didn’t want to pay for it???? Very disappointed how they handled it afterwards.

    This has always been one of our favorite places but they really dropped the ball this time. It took 30 minutes just to get our drink order. Entrees never showed up. Service was horrendous and they just kept making excuses. Seemed to have enough wait staff and they kept saying that the kitchen was behind.After an hour and 25 minutes, still didn't get our dinner so we paid for what we got and left. We won't be going back again.
