Reviews for The Brown Bag Bistro

This place has the most amazing sandwiches and the BEST service. My dad and I both had the Stuffed Bird when we went in earlier this week when I was in town and I’m thinking of driving 7 hours just to have it again! Love the owners, I would recommend this place to everyone!

Food was AMAZING (Rosie Roo= best reuben I've ever had), nice atmosphere at the outdoor seating. All of the employees were very nice.Only 4 stars because waited almost 45 minutes for 2 sandwiches (on a Tuesday afternoon), and the flies on the outdoor patio were horrendous. Please put some fly catching bags up behind the fence at the back of the patio, or somewhere- it was so hard to eat with all the bugs!

Always a great experience! Love the food! Great service and friendly staff as well. Fav. appetizer: the baked pretzels with the cheese dip and honey mustard. Fav. sandwich: the Reuben. Fav. soup: the Crab Bisque. Fav. salad: the Spinach salad. Also amazing burgers! Deserts are incredible as well, and definitely shareable in size!
