Vernon's Speakeasy Ratings and Reviews

We took a friend here for her Bachelorette Party. I can only say that it was probably her favorite part of the entire night. We had a very attentive waiter/sommelier that was knowledgeable about the history of the restaurant and was very in tune to our needs and ensuring that we had a memorable experience. The ambiance here is phenomenal, and you really feel the vibe that the restaurant is known for. The Prime Rib is probably the best thing I have ever put in my mouth. This place is worth visiting.

We enjoyed celebrating our daughter's 25th birthday at Vernon's. The food was tasty and the wine was superb. The ambiance is great and the piano player was very talented playing very good music. The prices are too high, though.

Fun and unique atmosphere. The menu was fantastic and had a good balance of affordable and pricey items. The staff were wonderful and accommodating when we combined two meals, the bartender was fantastic! This place is a 'must do' for visitors and I look forward to the next date night to spend here!

Kristen continues to wow us with her outstanding customer service and knowledge of the menu and wine list. Vernon's Speakeasy has, by far, the best French Onion soup I have ever tasted! Everyone at our table loved the quality and classy preparation & presentation of our meals, including our daughter, the chef. Thanks again for continuing to be the best of the best!

This was an exceptional dining experience! The ambiance, service, food, everything was absolutely perfect. I was most surprised by the phone call we received the day after we dined here, calling to ask how our food, service and over all experience was. I've certainly never had a restaurant call me the day after to check in and see how everything was, so that was a nice touch! We will definitely return!

My husband and I loved the atmosphere, the food, and service. All of the staff is friendly and strive toward excellent customer service. The big bonus that all of this really supports is the theme of the restaurant. It provides a unique experience without sacrificing quality.

The power was out, but we stayed. We were enjoying the piano music and we were fine with it. Problem was the waitress. She was sharp toned and stressed out. We know it was a bad day, but...we said we wanted to share a dish -- and she retorted about a split charge fee for the service. Seriously? We are hanging in there, in the dark, trying to be good customers when others are leaving, and you want to charge us nickels and dimes? Then she got very frustrated when the credit card didn't work on her machine -- but it worked fine on a another machine. The evening would have been a big win without her stressed out behavior.

We were celebrating our anniversary and tried Vernon's due to the nice reputation. Our expectations were met and exceeded. Fun place to dine and the food was a total pleasure to enjoy. Steaks were cooked perfectly and the salads were top-notch.
Our server was friendly, knowledgeable, and funny. This place does not disappoint!!

The ambiance was outstanding. The drinks were spot-on, and the piano player was the best. It was a bit quiet when we were there but it was a week night. The server took a bit too long to come and see us, and during the course of the meal was absent a lot, but the service was decent, just slow. Server was knowledgeable about his products, and did a good job selling. Food was top notch. I had a dry aged Rib eye that was absolutely what you'd expect from Vernon's... delicious. The wife had shrimp and everything was delicious. They even treated us to dessert for our anniversary.
Very good experience. Would recommend.

I have not been to Vernon's in a long time and was impressed by their new menu and greater selection of items. Vernon's is much more than just steak. They had a great selection including a vegetarian dish for my friend. Food was delicious and service was top notch! Awesome experience. Will be back very soon.

It was different. Crab cakes were good as was the Lobster Bisque. Lamb chops were cooked to perfection. We enjoyed our waiter Chris. He started out kind of brusque, but certainly lightened up by the end of our visit, even funny.

Went there to celebrate our engagement. Excellent food and service. Tomato bisque was outbof the world and we thought the only thing missing was a grilled cheese. We asked the waiter only half way jokingly, and within 5 minutes we had an off the menu grilled cheese that was phenominal.

My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed Vernon's. The theme was fun yet romantic and sexy. We had a blast. The service was excellent, however despite our server being outstanding overall, his personality was slightly less "formal" than expected considering the overall theme and class of the establishment. The dim lighting was romantic, yet way too dim for me, causing me eye strain. I was unable to read the menu without using my cell phone screen as a book light.
The ONLY reason I make these criticisms is simply because this isn't Mc'Donalds and for $150 for a dinner for two, I reserve the privilege of making such minor criticisms such as I wouldn't at a "normal" restaurant. The food was worth every bit of the bill and I look forward to our next visit.

What a fun place! Just getting there was quite an experience! From the minute we were 'allowed' to enter we had a blast. The steaks were absolutely delicious as was the rest of the meal. Since I'm a sweet-aholic the dessert was to die for! Watching my cousin relax and laugh was worth every penny. She takes care of her husband who is on hospice so it was a much needed treat for her. It was a wonderful experience overall and I am looking forward to dining at Vernon's again.

It would have been nice to know that the steak special my husband ordered was $125! No one said a word when we ordered. I spend all kinds of money on food, and I don't bat an eye at expensive dinners. But that was outrageous, especially since it was just "pretty good." Don't think I will be back. Still miffed.
Otherwise, atmosphere was fun, quiet, cocktails were good.

Giving the password to be allowed entrance was fun, and the bouncer was great and on point. Our food was delicious- filet minon, mushrooms, potatoes. Table bread was also served. We ordered Old Fashioned cocktails and they accommodated. Large menu, large drink menu. We even were given a tour of the whole place and the secret passages and doors really add to the ambiance and keep the noise down. Though we are from out of town, we would come here again.

Dined at Vernon's Speakeasy on Monday night with my husband. It was our first time and we were sent there by a friend. The food, service, and ambiance were amazing! I had the filet and could cut it with my fork. My husband had the ribeye. Both steaks were perfectly cut and very flavorful. We will be back soon. Fabulous experience and a perfect date night out.

I always wanted to dine at Vernon's. I finally got the chance and loved everything about it. The service was outstanding, food was excellent, the decorations and theme were wonderful. Wish the room was set up to view the pianist, I could hear the music, but never once got to see the musician. Overall, thumbs up place to go!

Very nice setting from the moment you walk in to the moment you walk out. Very mellow nice and comfortable setting. The food was amazing very well prepared. Our waiter was the best very knowledgable on the items we ordered. I really like the fact that local riots and vegetables are being used. It goes to show that we here in the state have a very well mixture variety of places to get the things needed.
