Somehow we managed to make a reservation and let me tell you, this place was packed to the brim. And despite the place being completely packed, we still got excellent service. When we first entered, the staff attending the doors and reception greeted us with a friendly smile, and took our group to our tables. There was a bit confusion on how we wanted the tables arranged (on our part) but they managed to accomodate us and make sure we were happy with the arrangements.
The Earl's on Broadway and Fir has pretty ample parking if not in the lot, then in the area. It looks actually quite small, but I had no trouble finding a spot.
I had my regular Chivas Regal 12 yrs, single on ice.
I don't drink beer much, but the pints looked pretty massive.....
......as were the cocktails. My friend's cesar looked like a tower from across the table.The Flying Beaver.
The kalamari tasted pretty good and was a good appie.
My townering Bronx Burger easily rivals Romer's burger in size. It looked incredibly appetizing when it arrived but I knew there was no way to eat this burger gracefully.
The other reason I have to return to Earl's is the excellent service we received that night. Our entire group was very, very happy with Earl's on Broadway. Our smallish group of 10 people were assigned two servers, both of whom knew their jobs and the product very well. They were supervised by an excellent night manager who made sure we had everything that we needed. Considering how busy it was that night, and considering that we had some special requests and details that needed to be looked after, we received excellect service and were never neglected for a moment. Summer, if you're reading this, I thank you and your staff for making the evening run so smoothly. I think you went above and beyond your job to look after us and you deserve recognition from your company for service excellence.
