    We had made this reservation a month ago and requested a particular server. We were also going for a birthday and requested a particular dessert they had had on the menu in the past. Neither of our requests were met, and the hostess told us that although we are able to make a request, they are not guaranteed to honor it. We did not get the salads ahead of time, they arrived at the same time as the meal. The waitressed was not good about checking in or keeping drinks refilled. The potatoes were barely warm. They also ran out of the ribeye special by 6:30 PM. Overall, a disappointing experience.

    Dinner was very good. Four of the five of us had scallops which were delicious! We wish scallops were on the regular menu. Rick was our server and he is personable, attentive, and fun to converse with. We have had numerous meals at Broadgauge and never been disappointed.

    We had a group of 12 and our server was efficient, friendly, and willing to see if dietary adjustment could be done. Our meals were served in a fairly quick time considering the size of the group.

    Our third visit for my 65th birthday, I’ve always gotten the halibut & it’s amazing, my husband is more adventurous & got the NY steak special & loved it! He’s never gotten the same item but has loved every new dish he’s tried!

    Everything about Broadgauge is "top-shelf"! The environment and ambience is warm and comforting. The food is superb and the waitstaff are attentive and professional in every way. Rick, our server, was as professional as they come; charming and always attending to our every need. There was also live entertainment upstairs in the Ballroom, which was outstanding and made our evening out a complete and satisfying experience. We'll be back soon! Check out Petersburg's newest "gem": the Broadgauge. You'll be glad you did!

    This was our 3rd time in Broadgauge and it was great. The drinks from the bar were spot on, the service was attentive but not overbearing. Hostess was quick to seat us. And the food was amazing. Only thing was the place is a tad bit loud for a intimate dinner. Our 10 year anniversary. But, it’s not “bad loud”. Just a little noisy. Still over all 5/5. Will return again for sure.

    The architecture of this grand old building is still beautiful and what drew us to dining there. Great reviews of the food was also a factor to try this place out. They offered a good choice of options for lunch. I had the pulled pork with coleslaw---very tasty, and their homemade potato chips were the best I've ever had! We live 45 miles away but would definitely make this trip again to enjoy a great meal as well as the beautiful area.

    Most everything was wonderful and as expected. It is noisy. I'm not sure how much of that can be fixed. Maybe noise absorption attached to the ceiling? I'm not sure of historical restrictions. We sat in the center row - every footstep/tromp was felt. Also not sure if anything can be done about that. However, young people don't seem to understand that they can walk lightly... just saying. Service was excellent, decor was wonderful, food was very, very good! We were traveling, but will be back!

    We enjoyed a cocktail at the bar prior to our reservation for dinner. We also ventured upstairs for some free live music that was offered that night. The decor is really nice. So glad the original wood work was preserved. The food was fabulous! My husband had the seafood special that night and I had a burger with hand cut fries. Both meals were excellent! If you haven't tried this place, put it on your list of places to go.

    We did Sunday brunch. Only a few pastries left. They Substituted salmon with shrimp, egg frittata with scrambled eggs, sausage with pork bites, gravy was cold. Had to pay extra for coffee and ice tea. Not many lunch type food options. Server was great. Very knowledgeable about history of building. I feel the price was high for the limited food choices. But the restaurant was cool looking.
