Came in twice for breakfast over the weekend when I was in town. Really good clean food!! Wonderful presentation! Colorful dishes! I really enjoyed the owner waiting on us both times! Really good robust coffee! The only recommendation I have is for the restaurant to...be more discreet about the catering and to go orders. We sat outside because the rustle of to go bags was unappealing. But, sitting outside was so nice. But, if we had to sit inside, we probably wouldn’t have stayed. A wall would do wonders. No one wants to see that!More

It took close to an hour to get my food. The food was very poor quality. If you have any choice....eat somewhere else.

We went to Crust Kitchen because it was close to our hotel, but I regret not going back to the Waffle Spot. The wait time was long, which I understand is because they only have 4 outdoor tables due to Covid. What was really the...reason for my 2-star review is the cheap-tasting pancakes. I'm easy to please, I mostly order fruit-topped pancakes, waffles, or French toast when I eat at restaurants for breakfast. I have never been disappointed merely by the taste of the pancake itself. If I had to guess what it tasted like, I'd say microwaved frozen pancakes. The syrup and strawberries only contributed to the stale taste. I was disappointed, how do you mess up pancakes? Not sure about what my boyfriend got, but his lack of enthusiasm while he ate tells me he didn't enjoy it that much.More

We stopped here and had a couple of cold beers. My son got the Country Fried Steak and I ordered the Hamburger and Fries. Friendly service and fair pricing.

Maybe this place would be better if we were dine in instead of takeout. Its certainly gorgeous inside and not what i expected for hotel circle. The bar is beautiful and made me want to order a martini. But we ordered two salads and the...calamari: One salad was fine but the other was either made completely wrong or they made the wrong one. It had only a few ingredients when on the menu it listed half a dozen (i only got greens and tomatoes). The calamari was so bland and the breading was mealy. The aoli it came with was tangy, so that helped, but it was more like eating crunchy mush with mayo. I want to like this place so I may try again, but very disappointing first impression.More

Order meals for my family of four from Crust Kitchen. Spend around $100.ordered some buttermilk fry chicken what I got was discraze. I got 3 pieces of flat chicken. Very sad to see how take out quality has gone down the drain during pandemic. I...am a true believer that it is poor quality like will take down small businesses like crust kitchen during pandemic. If I was staying closer to the restaurant I would have taken the meal back. Left a msg for manager Alex and have not heard backMore

Very good food at a fair price. Exceptionally friendly staff. Had an excellent BBQ sandwich - it was huge!. Very convenient to the hotels on Hotel Circle, but not really within walking distance of most. They will deliver. This review was written when the COVID-19...shutdowns were in-progress. The Crust kept their doors open for take-out and delivery only. Thanks guys!More

The food was very good, filling, and moderately priced. The staff was friendly and courteous. Was a pleasant surprise to have at the hotel.

We came across this restaurant on our way to the zoo leaving our hotel. Amazing breakfasts. Then we saw the lunch and dinner dishes and decided we would go back for dinner after the zoo. Everything is fresh and scratch and amazing. I recommend Paris...Burger and the Pear Gorgonzola Salad. I shared with a friend. My sons had pizza and salad and a cheeseburger and salad. They don't carry coca cola or pepsi. They have something without corn syrup. My sons loved it as there were plenty of flavors.More

Amazing food and excellent staff. The old fashioned cream soda drinks are very good. Try the pulled pork sandwich.
