Service was good today. Although other times it's hit or miss. Food was good and drinks were very good.
Too much time for 2nd round of drinks to be served. Saw server swipe finger through the rim of my friends margarita and taste it to see which one had the sugar rim and which one was salt. Thankfully she was drinking through a straw. Pizza ordered to go had barely any sauce or cheese on it.
Nachos and chicken wings awesome ? Sunday is $5 dollar off Sunday no burgers we had burgers day before. Awesome food drinks and food good $$$. Ms Bailey on deck who is awesome as the bartender she is adorable and is great ? Your neighbors say awesome ?
Unfortunately we had a horrible experience with Fody’s tavern. My daughter ordered the power bowl and we had ordered it online for pickup. I was in a rush so I picked it up and it turned out to be only spinach and a few vegetables on top. There were no chickpeas and no quinoa. I called and was told by the manager he would credit my card and five days later still no credit! I will not ever go back.
good food, good service and nice out on the deck.
Pleasant evening. Megan our server was attentive and acted like a grizzled veteran with ony one month experience. Hope she stays on. Rob the chef was a class act and checked in. Place had a nice vibe. Food was good and I'd go back. Heard about this place but first time here. Pleasantly surprised. They have good help and it starts from top down. Going out to eat now in post Covid times is a hit or miss
Sitting here on wednesday at 7 pm. And absolutely amazed with the staff!!!Keep it up Yall!!!!!!!!Trivia with Jay is normally on wednesdays but if it doesnt happen tonight for sports will be back next week!!! ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
Usually I have a good time here with good food and drink selections, tonight was quite an awkward experience...Cold shouldered and treated badly by one of the lead bar tenders. Almost rushed out and charged on drinks not received. The rest of the staff was excellent. Worth a stop in.
If you're familiar with the phrase, "Ya gotta take the bitter with the better", then you'll likely relate to my first impressions with this particular Fody's. You see, I liked almost everything about this place....except for one thing (seems like there's always one). So far as I know, there are only two Fody's in Southern NH. Most of you know I've already reviewed the Nashua one. Without retreading the same territory, all you need to know about the difference between the two is the fact that the Derry location is much bigger. Probably helps that they have a stand-alone building as opposed to their more compacted Nashua location. That's life downtown, I guess. The menus are pretty much identical. I wish I could say the same for the execution, however (we'll get to that in a minute). But for the most part, the food here is still really good. Especially the pizza! I was honestly surprised. We were attending my bestie's daughter's Sweet 16 party. Which meant renting out the entire first floor (kudos to the management for being so accommodating) with a dedicated bartender, streamable music via Bluetooth speakers, and a smorgasbord type setup of various appetizers and a few pizzas. I won't go over every appetizer. But the highlights were the spinach artichoke dip and pizzas. The cheese steak egg rolls were okay, but not something I'd really go out of my way to order again. I'd give the pizza an 8 out of 10. It wasn't quite NY style, but it was damn close. About that burger I had though.. Wifey got one, too (the Bleu cheeseburger) and BLUF: both were criminally under seasoned. I wish the travesties stopped there, but noooo...the buns were inexplicably hard as rocks. At first, I thought maybe they toasted them a bit too long. But they actually tasted stale as if they grabbed them from a sample plate. Anyways, whole thing tasted like it was cooked by a donkey. Which is weird, considering their Nashua counterpart makes excellent burgers. Like...some of the best we've ever tasted in the NH area. I'm telling you...these two locations are polar opposites when it comes to the burgers. And I have no idea why. Even the texture was off. So, I gotta give these obviously pan seared grease hockey pucks a 3 out of 10. If you wanna try a real burger, head to the Nashua location. But like I said, everything else about this place is really good. I briefly checked out the upstairs bar just to see what it was like. However, I quickly left after about 30 seconds because it was way too peopley up there. They are easy to spot on Rockingham road. Worth a go if you live in or nearby my former hometown. And I'm giving Fody's in Derry 4 almost-NY style pizzas out of 5.
AwfulDirty martini was made completely wrong(twice). Steak tips no flavor, FF that cam with it cold soggy. Not impressed. Girlfriend drink made wrong first time, second time it didn't have any of the garnishes or sugar rim that was described on the drink menu.Besides that the weather was nice outside.
Great spot! Some good food, only one dish was meh, but the rest were solid. Drinks were tasty with a nice kick. Server was very friendly. It took a bit for the apps to come out, but once they did the food started rolling. They were pretty busy and only had one server on so you could tell he was hustling. We were there on a Tuesday and were surprised with musical bingo which was loads as fun as a group, and sitting next to the fireplace made for great ambience.
Slow and little help on a Sunday night, but the waitress was pleasant and helpful. Nachos were good - pub food was as expected. Martini was good too.
I threw a surprise birthday party for my girlfriend on 2/22/22 special date and contacted the owner to help with the planning. Super friendly , and she had the food down to a science and recommended how much to order , super easy!. The appetizers and the pizza that we ordered was incredible and everyone was blown away by the service and how everything was so perfectly executed. The price for the food was very reasonable and the food was incredible . I’m definitely planning future events here and a lot of my friends might do the same. Good job , very impressed!!!!!
Went here Sunday with my family half off burgers I got the West T and it was amazing! Our waitress Dianna was supper knowledgeable about the menu, and suggested amazing drinks! She was very attentive and supper sweet. The only thing was the music was a little too loud, other than that we will definitely be back to see her again, and try out some other things!
It ain't French Laundry, but reasonable prices, good food - had the Salmon BLT. Good choice of alcoholic beverages. A pretty darn decent pub style dinner place.Not bad at all.
