"The food was awful! How do you mess up a burger and fries? Calamari was over cooked. Took us forever to get a server to offer water and such. We will not be back."

"We came for dinner on a Sunday. Our server was attentive but not over the top. The food was great with good menu choices for adults and kids. We would definitely visit again. We have given a lower score for ambience because another guest had a really loud voice and used it to 'entertain' a young child in her party. It was distracting for other guests and made conversation at our table quite difficult sometimes..... Not the fault of the restaurant but it did spoil the ambience for us."

"The food was great, drinks were good. We just had the misfortune of being there when there were two different groups having birthday celebrations. Oh, the service was excellent. I've been there on several other occasions for a drink or two and I absolutely love the place."

"This was our first time to Handles. We picked it because of the extensive beer list. The beer variety was great, the food was pretty good too, and the service was top-notch. I was actually blown-away by the knowledgeable attentive service. If you're looking for pub food and great beer and/or drinks...try Handles...it's great!"

"I don't know why this place has negative reviews, it's awesome! Nice service, spacious and clean. It's fabulous bar food w/out the ruckus.
The Pork Nachos were huge and to die for!
We also had the fish and chips and porkchops, also delicious.
Really big selection of beer as well.
I will definitely be back to try all their small plates.

"The service was so poor that I thought about emailing the restaurant to let the owners know of the situation Sun eve, but they don't have an email address. After reading the Yelp reviews I realized that our dining experience wasn't unusual.
So stick to the bar and appetizers, that seems to be where they want to excel.

"Let's start with basics: for a primarily bar operation, listing the red wine category beside white wines and then whites beside reds on the printed menu isn't good. But then misspelling Berkeley on one of the craft beers shows someone isn't paying attention. To be fair, both a chosen glass of wine and craft beer were great. But then the entrees came. A listed chicken breast turned out to be a leg/thigh quarter, not the same and not as healthy. Told the server right away who, much like her entire service, was indifferent. No sorry, no offer to exchange, just "oh". Felt rushed the whole time even though 2/3 of the tables were empty and on a Wednesday night around 7-7:30pm when it wouldn't be getting crowded later. Beautiful historic setting, probably best for having a beer and then going to one of the many nearby other restaurants. Reading other posted reviews of similar poor service now brought me to my conclusion that someone isn't paying attention."
