We were visiting for holidays and Grandma offered to babysit while we went to dinner. While my husband grew up in St Joe there has been significant changes since he left. We loved this place. It reminds me of a bistro you would find in a bigger city. We both had steak but it was a tough choice between those... More

I have been here before and it certainly wasn't as bad as tonight. Everything was off. The service left A LOT to be desired. Both burgers were desert dry and the Beef Stew was Onion Soup. The condiments were vacant from the burger platters. Again, the service was very very slow, 4 separate times we had to get up from... More

This has already been addressed on the original review sight that it was posted on, Face Book. It was responded to professionally and in timely manner as well. This seems to be a continued effort to damage our brand. So we again will post our response. Thank you. "We apologize for your experience. After speaking with the staff that served... More

We went with siblings for a night out. Food was really good it's a little pricey but it was well worth it. I would love to go back!

Back for my high school reunion and enjoyed dinner before with a longtime friend. We both had a lovely fish entree! I highly recommend it.

The red snapper really tastes quite nice. And it is a substantial portion. I'd recommend you get your can down here and come git some. Pound some brews while you're at it. They have a great selection.

So amazed this restaurant isn't in top 10. Well worth the drive from Kansas City. Great food, awesome service (Tabbie is delightful) and the patio is perfect! My husband loves a great steak but is usually disappointed. The ribeye was perfect! I had the chicken gorgonzola pasta. It was very yummy. Our friends had the meatloaf and salmon. Everyone was...

More upscale food selection, but very tasty. Fun patio and interior decor. Food is always very good as is the service.

When we get a night out without kids, we head for Bad Art. The steaks are local and delicious. We've noticed an upswing in details and quality recently and were told they have a new sous-chef. Visited again last week on a Thursday and everything in our meal was fantastic! The filet with garlic butter, the sweet potato mash, the... More

The atmosphere is wonderful here. Especially the patio area. We could talk without alot of noise or distraction. We had dinner it was good but pricey. I think we would come again but just do the Tapas and drinks.

Our group of 6 arrived at this eclectically appointed eatery and were seated outside for dinner. We enjoyed a variety of drinks and craft beers while waiting for our meals. First out were the salads, a Caesar, an Organic Green and several Avocado salads. Everyone enjoyed their salad and entree selections which were skillfully prepared and artfully presented. A real...
