Best Staff...not so much! – I am new in town and I went here because of all the reviews that the bartenders are the best and I though it might bea good (not know anyone in town) place to go and strike up some conversation with some cool people. Well walked in and sat down it took a while for anyone to say hello to me and when they did they took my drink order. The four women behind the bar seemed very into what their conversation was about and did not look up to see if I needed anything else. They were vey attentive to the people that they knew. A group of women walked in and sat a a table and I watched how they smirked and made fun of these women. As a matter of fact one of the women order her drink and certain way and behind the bar one bartender said to the other that was making the drink to the order said ?f*#k that, just shake it around? ??.There was two very nice bartenders both with light brown or blonde short hair and the other two had brown hair one had it long and tied in a bun and the other had short brown hair ( this is the one that said F that ) and the shortest one behind the bar. When you go hope that you get the blond hair girls. I have a suggestion to the owner be as attentive as you are to your fiends that go to the bar , to all costumers and you have a gold mine. Continue the way you are going and you will have few repeat customers. You may get new customers but if they don?t come back than business looks bad.
Good place, very nice staff, maybe a little too trendy if that makes sense? – I go there b/c my buddies like the owner. Everyone I have met that works there has been really cool to me. The seats are not the most comfy, but it's a pretty well rounded new Raleigh type of bar. It's doesn't feel like a big city bar, but it's got enough charm to draw a steady crowd of people. It is smokey on occasion but thankfully the ceilings are high so if not too many people are smoking at once, it has relatively better air quality than most other bars.
The best staff anywhere!!! – The staff at The Borough is awesome, these ladies are fun while still having their act together and are capable of holding it together and getting drinks out quickly even when it is slammed.
fFood is served all night and the menu is quite reasonable in price for the quality.
I am a huge fan of their signature drinks, especially the Pombr
The only place downtown you can order an amazing meal at 1 am!! – Open 7 days a week, so you never drive all the way there just to be let down. The bartenders are quick and creative, and the food.... let's just say.... try the filet, try the filet, try the filet!! I visit all the time, it is the perfect afternoon place to sip a martini and take advantage of their free wi fi!! They actually encourage me to bring my dog!! ( We sit on their patio and do some serious "people watching".) It's really just an all around great place!
Great Atmosphere – My fiance and I go here at least once a week to wind down with a simple meal and beverage of choice. Good music and great service. I'll be there next week for sure.
The best company I have found. – One of the most relaxed and hip places to hang out and enjoy the moment. Great for after work and even better on the weekend. The staff are wonderful and fun to be around. I am so glad to have found the place. Good food and drinks. You got to try it and you will always keep coming back for more. You will find a very diverse crowd and everyone has fun. Love it, Love it.
Hip downtown eatery on the lower level of a happening condo building exudes subtly seductive ambience and liveliness, simultaneously. – In Short
Minimalist decor is attractive and inviting for professionals enjoying a well-deserved drink after work or for kicking off a great weekend. Dine barside, at a picnic-like table with a group or outside with a prime view of passersby. The food is creative, tasty, and very reasonably priced for a hip hangout. Start with the Boomerang (spin on spinach dip), Med Bread, oysters, or hushpuppies for comfort food. Burgers, chicken or filet mignon all make good entrees.
