Amazing experience The food was great. The familiarity of the southern comfort with a touch of fancier finish The service was great The cost was reasonable The wine selection is solid

This is quite possibly my favorite restaurant in Evansville. They have an amazing nontraditional take on Benedict breakfast. There's also an great list of whiskey to choose from and their large bone in ribeye is fantastic. This is my go to destination for a great date night or even just a family dinner. The ambiance on their lower level is perfect for an intimate night out with your SO.

Hands down the best Prime Rib we've ever had and the Teriyaki Chicken was amazing. The portions are insane. If you haven't ate here you're missing out

Stopped by for a couple adult beverages. The margaritas were absolutely delicious and loved the waitress who joked right along with us.

The service from Adam was amazing. The food..well you have to experience for yourself. Great menu—so many choices. We have been there three times in two days!

While we noticed the place was very busy, we were able to get a table immediately. Our waitress was quick to take our order and our salad and soup came quickly. Hot bread preceded it. Dinners were plentiful in size and great in the taste department. Service was impeccable. We'll go back.

Excellent food. Great selection of comfort foods and breakfast items. We recommend the pork chops, the salads and chicken fried chicken. You get a salad and two sides with your entree so there's usually some to take home. Bru Burger had a 40 minute wait for our party of 8 but Comfort was only a short one block walk away and seated us immediately. The staff was friendly and very attentive. We finished our meal only 15 minutes after we would have been seated down the street. Comfort will be our first choice next time!

Time and time again this place never disappoints! Strawberry butter, Bloody Mary's , grilled cheese dippers, loaded fries....I could go on!

This restaurant has changed its hours due to COVID and now closes at 9PM on weekends. Despite us walking in at 8:45 we were provided exceptional service and would rate our service a 5! However, the food, not so great. We have had amazing food at the Cross Eyed Cricket and was expecting the same delicious food. Our food was not so great, I had the chicken and dumpling and bread stuffing and the stuffing was so salty I could not eat, it actually was so salty that I suspected it was done on purpose, it literally tasted like someone lost the lid of the salt shaker while seasoning. It honestly ruined the entire meal, after tasting the stuffing everything tasted like a salt lick. My chicken and dumplings had a yellow tint and very little chicken pieces. The best part of my meal was the fresh fruit and berries. My husband had the roast beef and states his meal was also over seasoned. I really hate giving negative reviews and usually will not. Both meals were $35.00 and definitely not worth the price. Maybe we will try again at a later time then will update my review. I would highly recommend a new chef who tast the food before it leaves the kitchen!

I was there on a Monday afternoon and the place was quiet and clean. The wait staff were really nice. I had the bacon, lettuce, avocado, and tomato sandwich. It was pretty good!

Every time we eat here we fall in love with this place all over again. Whether it’s the chops, tomahawk steak, asparagus or corn bread or anything in between it’s always prepared perfectly and delicious!! Cross eyed cricket is quickly becoming our favorite place to eat! Leave the A1 on the table you won’t be needing it, top all that with their first class service and it’s no wonder why they have been in business for so long. Highly recommended!

Absolutely delicious! Loved the atmosphere and the food! I had the country fried steak meal and everything was amazing! The outside was crispy and had a nice crunch, while the steak was very tender. Paired together very well. I also had mashed potatoes and fried okra as my side dishes. Both were very flavorful. My table also ordered the blue crab stuffed mushrooms and everyone thought they tasted great! Highly recommend this amazing restaurant!

This is the oldest building in Evansville, and has been beautifully renovated into a four level dining facility. The main floor is nicely decorated and serves good comfort food. It is a bit pricey for comfort food, but with the restaurant being downtown I would guess it’s on par with other similar downtown restaurants. The basement has been turned into a bourbon bar, and the second floor is a wine bar which is very new (they were adding to it as recently as last week). The second floor also had a very nice balcony. The third floor is a grand ballroom, but I did not get a chance to see it. The basement and second floor would both be great for rehearsal dinners, small receptions/company parties, etc. The manager was very helpful and will give you a tour with some history of the building if you like. Overall great experience!
