good stuff - lots of beer selections, although the one we ordered was out for the day (so why is it still listed on the specials of the day board?) and another was too sweet for me - waiter replaced my beer for one I preferred gratis. Fish and chips rocked and my companions raved about the burgers.

We had a coupon to have lunch here. Obviously they are using coupons to try to draw people in for lunch, as we were the only ones there. It looks like it might be a fun night spot: big bar, space for an entertainer, dark red walls, spooky paintings, fish tank. So for lunch the ambience was kinda creepy. The... More

Have gone here before and enjoyed it. Yesterday brussel sprout appetizer, brussel sprouts were old and tough and it tasted more like they just poured vinegar over it than a sauce. The ribeye steak was thin and the flavor just didn't taste like a good cut of meat. As I said I've eaten here before the steak was delicious brussel... More

This place is tucked away and I had no idea where I was going. But a friend recommended it and it was awesome. We had the calamari and gravy fries… Both to die for!!! The chef there has some creative ideas with great flavors. And not to mention all the craft beers on tap. We will be back.

i've been eating at this restaurant since it opened and it never disappoints. The food is art as far as I'm concerned. Chef Adrian goes far out of his way to create dishes that are different from the norm and pop with flavor. Some of my favorite dishes are the Gravy Fries, Goat Cheese appetizer, Pork Chops and anything on... More

Sorrel is a great gastropub. the quality of the food is great, and since I eat there often, I am happy that they change the menu frequently. Large portions and great flavors. They have great beer and liquor offerings.

Smaller restaurant with a full service bar at one end of the room. An eclectic atmosphere that was clean and inviting. Went at 5:30 and there were people at 3 other tables + 4 people at the bar. No trouble getting an immediate table and service. Our server was friendly and answered our menu questions. My wife ordered a medium... More

With high expectations to find a privately owned local restaurant of distinction after reading the warm reviews on Yelp; we were disappointed to find the reality well short of the promise and the overall ambition. Attention has clearly been paid to the details but the fundamentals have somehow eluded Sorrel. We started with Roasted Butternut Squash soup that was excellent... More

I went because I had talked to many friends who loved it. It was okay. I got a flat bread pizza and a glass of wine. It wasn't anything outstanding it was fine. The atmosphere seemed a little crowded even though there were few people when I went there.

Quaint / rustic restaurant. my boyfriend said its the best burger he's ever had. I had a rib eye steak. the flavor of the beef here is excellent. we had a pork puff pastry for an appetizer really tasty. Bring your wallet and a extra credit card though it's not a cheap place to eat or drink. Ah ha! I... More
