Reviews for The REFUGE

I've been hearing about this place for years and now that more and more restaurants are opening back up I was glad to go on a Saturday afternoon. Dining is currently outdoors only. This restaurant is known for their pastrami but I'm not really a fan of pastrami. I had the OG Cheesesteak and upgraded to a side of brussel sprouts. The cheesesteak was very disappointing, it was lacking something but I can't pinpoint what it was. It was just bread, cheese, and steak. Very plain. full review

Amazing food, amazing beer and top notch service. Adam was our waiter, adam is the prime example of customer service. We were seating quickly and Adam happily answered any questions we had on food and beer. The food and beer came out quickly even with a pretty busy place. The goofy fries are a must!! Greta place to day drink and have some good food an amazing customer service!

way too overpriced with tiny portions. Its a sandwich place and one would expect paying 20$ per sandwich something more decent than what they offer. It will cost a normal full grown man about 40$ just to have lunch there. Which normally one would expect from some steak place or seafood one. Food is ok, nothing super exciting or memorable.
