While looking for a place to eat before a show at the Embassy, we decided on Conner's Kitchen and Bar. Good choice! The restaurant is located in the Courtyard Hotel and used to be Champions Sports Bar. Conners is completely different. There are still some TVs but the environment is very comfortable and nice. The menu is made up of several different selections, Lump Crab Hushpuppirs, Cornbread Muffins (very good), Mac and Cheese (also very good), Smoked Pork Hash to name a few items. They also have a conplete bar with several specialty cocktails. This place is just a block from the Embassy, Parkbiew Field and the Grand Wayne Center. They were very busy on our visit and could of used more servers but our server never missed a beat. Try it out, it is worth it.

Conner’s Kitchen is a great value during their Happy Hour, 4-6 pm. Selected appetizers and drinks for only $5 each! Entrees are on the pricey side, however the food we had was great and the service was excellent. Our waitress, Jenny was awesome! We have been to Conner’s at busier times when the service tends to lag a bit, but it seems most businesses currently have that issue due to understaffing.

Visited for Valentines Day dinner. Had an overall good experience! Drinks were delicious and well made. The lump crab hush puppies were amazing and by far my favorite part of the meal. Loved everything about them! I got the fried chicken dinner. It was a good but not great meal in my opinion. The chicken was good and crispy, but I wasn’t a fan of the mashed potatoes and gravy. However, the service was great and I am intrigued by the brunch menu! I don’t know if it will be my favorite place, but I’m not going to write it al the way off! If nothing else, good for drinks and apps before or after a Tincaps game!

My family ordered appetizers & entrees at the same time but were clear that it was two courses. After a lengthy wait, our server comes out to apologize saying she forgot and didn’t order the apps first. We said it’s ok, we still want them. At this point I think that now all our food will arrive together. No, not remotely. 2 of our 4 entrees arrive, then a pause. Then the other two entrees and no apps. She says she’s sorry it will be just a minute. One person completely finished her entree before the apps arrived. At this point, I’m not pleased but things happen so I’m trying to roll with it. We are finishing eating when without asking she delivers the check. She didn’t ask if we’d like anything else like dessert, coffee, another drink just delivered the check. Now I’m really not pleased and then I see that all the apps are still full price. I was shocked. Not a great experience.

I know there is a labor shortage now and that apparently hit this restaurant hard. Our wait time was 30 minutes which increased to 45 min and then to 1 hour 15 min. Only about 25% of their tables had people seated. Their menu is rather small and they were out of MANY items. No chicken strips, fish tacos, no corn, no rice?, no guacamole…on and on. My salmon was of a very small portion and very undercooked. Apparently after preparing our food, the kitchen closed! They could not rectify the situation!! I had raw salmon and they did not remove it from the bill. I paid $28 for raw inedible salmon! I’m still flabbergasted. Two good points of this restaurant: the ambience is appealing and my Manhattan was delicious. The rest sucked! Megan, our waitress was friendly but seemed overworked and unable to resolve a common food issue.

This was my first time here. The interior design was more of a modern, slightly industrial look. Our server was friendly. The food was good and their portion sizes seem to be on the larger size. I ordered the chicken wings. I was expecting to get your typical size chicken wings. The ones I received were huge. Either way, we had a nice evening and a good meal.

The food was very good. The server was very nice. She assisted with making a substitution for my husband’s dinner, and he found it very tasty. However, we both ordered an Old Fashioned. She asked if we wanted the house brand that was not familiar to us. I asked if they could be made with Maker’s Mark. She agreed. When a different server brought the drinks they were very small. They were in double old fashioned glasses, but still seemed very small. My husband even commented to the server, “Where’s the rest of it?”. When our bill came, the charges for the drinks had an up charge of $5 per drink, on top of the original price of $13, making the pair of them $36. I asked the server about it and she explained that Makers Mark was considered top shelf and required an upgrade charge. At best, Maker’s Mark is mid-shelf. The server should have warned us of the charge. It seemed the restaurant is more interested in making money from people passing through and not hoping for repeat customers. We will be passing through many times in the next four years, but won’t be going back to this place, unfortunately.

I am sincerely disappointed to hear about your experience with us. It is true that there is a differential charge when substituting one liquor for another, and you do still receive a 2oz pour; however, I do apologize that this was not communicated clearly prior to receiving your beverage. Please be sure this has been communicated to our team to avoid the confusion in the future. Thank you again for joining us, and I hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Take care.

My mom, sister and I met up here for lunch before enjoying a day in December at all the local holiday events. Our server, Jenny was very attentive to our needs and promptly visited our table to take orders, answer questions and check on our meal. The green goddess salad was outstanding. The fish taco was good but low on flavor. Next time I would try soup of the day.

I’m a frequent diner at Conner’s Kitchen, mostly because of the delicious food. My husband and I dined at the restaurant on a Monday evening because we needed some relief from a flooded basement. Upon entering the establishment we weren’t greeted like most restaurant we’ve dined in with, “welcome to Conner’s how many”. Not one word was spoken by the hostess (first impressions go a long way). I asked the hostess if she knew the name of the bartender who I thought I knew. The hostess said no one worker there by the name I gave (the bartender was the person I asked about). It would be good practice to make sure employees know each other. But the best part of our visit was our waitress Angelica and the waiter she was training whose name I forgot. They were very inviting, greeted us with beautiful smiles and had pleasant demeanors. I asked our waitress if I could add shrimp to my caesar salad but was denied (no problem though) but then was asked if I wanted salmon, or chicken. I then jokingly said I can have salmon but not shrimp, lol. All in all our service was great and bartender Lucy Swartz came over to our table to say hello. We will be returning to Connor’s in the near future hopefully with changes in how we are welcomed into the restaurant. Maybe Angelica could give the hostess (host) a lesson in how to extend quality customer service.

Wow! These guys are knocking it out of the park. This is my fifth visit and it’s worthy of a visit. Tonight the Burrata was insanely perfect - I know it’s a simple dish however it’s easy to screw up. Wings - ok so what I get it. They have a nice smoked dry rubbed full wing that’s worthy of a visit even for just one order. Again simple however expertly executed. Crispy skin covered with a sprinkle of a happy sweet yet spicy dry rub. The bar has a very nice selection of bourbons and whisky which is always nice to see. Of course they are next door to one of Fort Wayne’s top cocktail restaurants however they don’t disappoint.

My husband and I visit Connor’s about once a month on a Wednesday for the $5 old fashioned drinks and $5 appetizers. Always a great time. Great food, drinks and service. This particular visit our bartenders were Sky and Alex.

Comber’s is a great eating place attached to he Courtyard by Marriott in downtown, Fort Wayne, Indiana. It is across the street from the Wayne Convention Center. The restaurant has an industrial, mid-century vibe that meshes well with the building itself and the surrounding neighborhood. Every entree we tasted was delicious and given in large portions. We especially enjoyed the deviled eggs, but there were options for every palate. Last, but not least, the restaurant staff was friendly, prompt, attentive, and worked as a team.

Our server Johnny O. worked patiently with us, understood our likes and made recommendations based on our feedback. He went above and beyond by getting the awesome bartender Liza involved to create our very own special cocktail for the evening. Crafted deliciously! Our meal was as exceptional as the service. After traveling for ten hours this was exactly what we needed. I would highly recommend.

We ended up walking out of another restaurant and came here. This has been AMAZING!!! Johnny O. offered fantastic service and saved our date night. We highly recommend coming here! Lump Crab Hush Puppies are so delicious so were our entrees - Smoked Brisket Meatloaf and Shrimp n Grits. Several hostess attendants and other wait staff checked in with us and made the entire experience welcoming.

Feels like this place has a lot of opportunity to be great but it falls short on nearly every front. Starting with a small menu that lacks flavor and drinks that were just ok. The only thing that redeemed the place was the staff were kind, not speedy but nice enough. Sadly, people that are just nice enough doesn’t make me want to bother going back. I’ll try another place next time, thanks.
