We ate at the Sage Cafe several weeks ago and enjoyed everything. However today we went back and my experience was not as good. I checked my flatware bundled in a napkin and first noticed the fork handle had encrusted food on it. Upon further inspection, the blade of the knife also did. Hmmm. It was cheerfully exchanged and we ordered our food. I know they close at 3PM and we arrived at around 2PM but the biscuits were hard and dry. OK, maybe we came too late for fresh biscuits. I ordered an omelette and encountered a piece of plastic in my omelette. They said it came from the cheese package after I pointed it out to them and perhaps that is so. They apologized and I said it was ok. What was I going to do? If I were a manager or owner, I would have done something, ...anything ...like a discount at a future meal for this to happen. I received nothing. Oh well. I felt a little nauseous for awhile afterwards but I am fine now. But, I just think the experience of our lunch was ruined. Accidents happen and it was not the end of the world. Bad luck I suppose. Service was great otherwise. I just wanted to share this.

You've got to appreciate this place for what it is. A chill spot on the river to kick back and have some cheap drinks and greasy food. If you're looking for a NICE restaurant this is not the place to go. But if you're more interested in having a relaxed, low key night where you can wear shorts and flip flops to dinner this is a great spot. The loaded fries appetizer is sinfully delicious albeit pretty greasy. The burgers are good. The fish n chips are good. I'd stick to beer because their mixed drinks were not that great. Come with a group and you'll have fun. They even have volleyball you can play once you're feeling nice and light ;)
I guess I could call myself a "regular" since I bring my family and friends here all the time. I always used to be embarassed to say I frequent this bar when we would come in with the old owner's daughter working. She has horrible customer service, so thank goodness I know that's not how things always go! The new owner has been very personable with myself and my guests, and the bartenders that are still employed there have definitely stepped it up a notch to make up for the previous shortcomings. I love this bar and I always meet new people in here who feel the same. I think the new owner is doing a marvelous job.
