    Love coming here and was glad I was able to get a both by the bar inside. The only thing I hate is it took forever for someone to acknowledge that I was sitting and waiting took about 15mins I had to ask “Excuse who’s serving this table?” But other than than the server was great and attentive!

    This was my 2nd time at Loch Bar., the Houston location. My 1st time was for brunch and I absolutely enjoyed it. I had the crab cake Benedict which was superb 💯. The portion size and flavors were excellent...so much so that I was very interested in trying their dinner menu. Unfortunately, I was disappointed with the items I had. I ordered a cup of the crab bisque, which was rich but quite salty. I also ordered the Cesar salad and it was extremely salty. I asked my dinner guest to try it since I thought both of my dishes were quite salty and wanted to determine if it was my palate or the dish. She confirmed the salad was indeed very salty. I absolutely adore Cesar salads and make it a point to try it if it's on the menu. This is the 1st time ever having a Cesar that was salty. Despite this experiece, I would definitely return again for their brunch menu.

    Deviled eggs were very tasty. East coast oysters were the best part of the meal. The fried chicken was mediocre. Not much flavor. Dry. Not hot at all. The garlic mashed potatoes had very little garlic. It took forever to check out. My waitress disappeared and finally showed up

    I dine worldwide so it’s difficult to give an outstanding rating freely. Rashad, our waiter, was truly outstanding. The burger was top notch! The oysters and shrimp are a bit pricey in my opinion. Otherwise, Loch Bar is an excellent restaurant.

    Joined a friend here for brunch (9/10) at 2pm. It was our 1st time at the restaurant. Our waiter Rashad was very kind, attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. I had the crab cake Benedict which was lovely. The portion size was excellent and filling. Due ro the portion size, I am glad I did not order an appetizer, salad or dessert because whew I am still satiated hours later. I will definitely visit again and explore other options on the menu. My total for the crab cake Benedict + 2 mimosas as $50. Definitely a great value.

    I'll qualify this review by stating that in a dining experience, the higher the price point of the establishment also elevates the expectations on the patron. Therefore this review is predicated on that assumption. With that said, went for brunch on a Sunday and it was not busy by far (may be 8 tables occupied). Upon being seated, it took 10 minutes for a table touch and additional 15 minuted to receive a glass of water. Ordered alcoholic beverages (mimosas - not complicated) and it took 25 minutes to receive those drinks. For context we ordered appetizers and drinks concurrently and appetizers were received 8 minutes before drinks. Once appetizers were completed and before main course, table was cleared however silverware and side plates were not replaced. As a consequence main course was received without anything to consume it with. Additionally as previously stated, the restaurant was not busy however the wait staff did not work with any sense of urgency or even pay attention to patron tables to see if anything was missing. Manager on duty appeared to be more interested in "shooting the breeze" with what I assume are regulars than overseeing the status of the tables. Overall I will say I've have experienced higher levels of attentiveness at Capt. Bennys, therefore based on that I would not recommend.

    We waited 30 minutes to be seated for our reservation. We were seated next to the band and had to tell at each other in order to hear. Service was mediocre. Food was okay- salty crab soup but not enough salt on the lobster roll.

    Had 2 appetizers that were good - fried oysters and mussels. The dinner entree fish and chips was fine but the hamburger was inedible. The patty was over cooked and the bun was hard - unsure if it was due to freshness or by design.

The locals gave some great ideas in this 72 hour tour. It was within walking distance to my hotel and the mall! Sunday: We Brunched before take off! Everyone in my party was PLEASED with the options they chose.

    We were seated at a bar high table & two of us sat on uneasy barstools with no back, which makes for an uncomfortable long meal. The dinner lasted over two and a half hours, not because we were taking our time, but due to service. Things we ordered were not brought out as ordered - like a salad requested with no dressing was brought out overdressed. Also, my redfish was over cooked. Neither of those items were eaten, but no one asked about it. Also, the band adds nothing to the restaurant other than noise.

    I’ve dined at the Maryland location and two glaring differences: - The fries are entirely too salty. - The crab cakes are smaller, and have too much filling. Our waiter was nice, but slow. We waited for over 10 minutes for water.

    Four of us went here for HRW. It was okay. The service was terrible. Didn’t bring out our raw bar order so we canceled it. Server was definitely not attentive and seemed distracted. He would forget our drinks, requests. For where this restaurant is located, the service is sub par.

    We loved our experience at the Loch Bar. Crab cakes were exceptional, and all food was fantastic! The house white wine was very nice. The passion fruit creme brulet also great, and Americano coffee excellent. The wait staff was very attentive and also had a cool/calm demeanor. Really liked them. We sat on the front patio and were delighted with the landscaping that really took us away from Westheimer. Very nice. We will be back. Highly recommend!
