I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! I have yet to try something I didn’t like. The service is always spot on and the atmosphere is so inviting. I love that they literally make everything from scratch. From the whipped cream for the French toast to the $1 Mimosas on Sunday brunch. The outdoor patio is HUGE with a great view and many different types of seating. They put out giant games on the lawn as well. Plan to wait or plan ahead and put in your reservation before you get there. It is always busy when I visit.

Updated review. Wings were sometimes inconsistent last year but have improved. Staff are friendly and very knowledgeable about the extensive beer, whisky, and scotch offerings. Wednesdays are busy but the half price wings and whisky deal is impossible to beat in JOCO. Update January 2022: food quality and consistency are top notch. Staff remain awesome. They are building an accompanying brewery, so that's going to be awesome

Great food. A bit loud. Service is pretty good. Lacks refinement. Like most service in U.S. they do a mostly good job. Just overworked, not enough staff, they get in a hurry and lack refinement. Set plates down hard on table. Have too repeat, they don't listen the first time.Not their fault, workload causes it. For what costs too eat here. Service and atmosphere does not matches the food quality. Food is great. Portion size is great. Taste is great.

We held our staff holiday (2021) party at Tin Roost this year and had an amazing experience. The room they selected for us was plenty large for our group of about 50. Tin Roost gave us two dedicated servers who very capably handled drink orders, meal service, and table clearing. The food was served buffet style - appetizers, main course and dessert. Everything was excellent. Often that isn't the case when food is made in larger quantities, but everyone in our party enjoyed all that was offered. I highly recommend Tin Roost for personal dinning and your next group gathering.

Went there last night and was told a 35 minute wait. We didn’t mind so we sat and waited. It turned out to be a little longer than that, which was not a big deal we were already there and they were very clearly busy. When we were sat, I believe it was the manager, came up and offered us an appetizer on the house for our wait! It was honestly no big deal but it was very much appreciated. When staff go out if their way to make sure their customers feel welcomed and appreciated for their business it should be noted somewhere. It was a very nice gesture, thank you!
