First time here & it won't be my last. Stopped in for lunch with my wife & sisters. Drinks included a Moscow mule, wind &. Bloody Mary. We started with the shrimp & vegetable spring rolls & fried calamari. Both were crisp & flavorful. The spring rolls had a side of teriyaki sauce & the calamari had three different sauces.... More

Had dinner at TimeOut and loved the burgers! Great service! We haven't eaten there in a long time and wanted to give Time Out another try. We were very happy with our burgers, but we found prices on other selections a bit high for Durham. We will go back again for those burgers .

Looking at the reviews some people said that the restaurant is a little pricey. I found that the prices are relative to the amount of food you get. The food was excellent, the service was fantastic and the portions were large. I would definitely go back!!

Great atmosphere in the bar and the restaurant. We had the lobster roll and fries which was excellent. I had the beef medallions with the cream sauce and my son had the same dish but with the wine reduction. Both excellent! My Manhattan was excellent and my wife's key lime martini was very good. We will be back.

I have been a patron here for 2+ decades. Since the fire and subsequent rebuilding, the place has a different feel, not bad just less like a neighborhood place. It lacks the overall character of the old tavern. But the bar is nice and the atmosphere relaxed. My only gripes are that the service is hit or miss and the... More

Had dinner at this restaurant last night! Great service and delicious food. We only had sandwiches but they were full of meat and the sweet potato fries were fantastic. Great decor, clean and reasonable prices!

Service was horrible. Took 1 hour between app (wings) and our burgers. Our waitress never came back to check on us or explain the delay; let alone come back to clear the dirty plates from the apps. The other waitress nicely cleared our table and refilled our beverages. Our waitress also never came back to see if we needed anything... More

This restaurant is lively with a large bar and wide screen TVs. The restaurant area is nicely appointed and the staff efficient and friendly. I think the menu items, however, are overly fussy. We prefer simple, well cooked seafood, meat or poultry, but the dishes are prepared with strong seasonings or heavy sauces. One special, for example, was scallops cooked... More
