Horrible. From the moment we walked until we walked out. Friday evening there is Comedy in the Blue's lounge, where we prefer to eat, so it makes for absolute chaos trying to get a seat. They said we could only eat upstairs as seating was done in the lounge. Comedy starts at 9 and we were told that at 7:10 pm. So over we go to the other desk and were told the upstairs was full and table would be ready near 7:30 pm. We could go sit in the bar and have a drink, well why couldn't we just go sit at the bar and eat? Hmmmm??? At 7:50 I finally went to the desk and asked and they said they were ready for us. We were seated in a tiny booth. Terrible design. The waitress explained the seasonal soup as Roasted Butternut squash with a honey roasted almonds....it was actually a cream based something. It had no flavor what so ever. Especially not Squash. I tried a new dish, The seafood Thermidor, with shrimp, scallops and Lobster with a brandy sauce over bucatini noodles. I am not a noodle connoisseur, but man were they over cooked. The whole dish was fishy because the lobster from the lobster claw was nasty. Rubbery claw meat. The shrimp and scallops were fine, not great. Kate's on State does excellent seafood dishes with a great rich cream sauce. This was a flavorless cream sauce. if you could get beyond the fishy smell.  My husband ordered the Prime rib, which I usually enjoy for it's super light smoke flavor. Tonight it was way over smoked and came out STONE COLD. My husband won't complain, so he ate half and suffered through it. When I shared this with the waitress she did not ask if we wanted a new piece or something different, she just said I'll tell the chef. When I told her the lobster was fishy no comment. She offered us desert to make up for the bad food. Really? Why would I want more bad food on top of the bad food I just ate. I said no thank you, just take a few bucks off the bill. They did. A whooping 10% off the bill. So, $5.76 off. Yes, 10%. Who takes 10% off a bill. How about 50% off his cold prime rib? As I was leaving I used the lady's room upstairs, it was now 9 pm. NO ONE turned the heat on and there is a huge window letting the cold air in. It was a high of 29 degrees today! How is it, I was the first one from a busy restaurant to mention there is no heat in the bathroom! Well, my back end is now stuck there, frozen to the seat! About every 4 visits the food is terrible. So, it will be a long time before we go here again.
Attentive and friendly service at the bar, comfortable atmosphere and good fresh food quality earns Piggy's a very solid 5 star rating! I appreciate all of the menu offerings and due to my own diet restrictions, I couldn't explore it! Ordering the 8 oz. prime rib medium sided with steamed fresh carrots and a side salad with a delicious made in house honey mustard dressing, I couldn't find any area with room for improvement except maybe the horse radish! (could be hotter!) Portion, tenderness, sides and service exceeded all expectations!  however, I give Piggy's 5 stars based on overall value! WHAT A DEAL! Great space, friendly service and good food quality, Can you expect more? No! Come, Eat, Enjoy!

Went there to try a different place. Loved the atmosphere. We were a half hour early for our reservation. We made our way to the bar area and had a drink. Bartenders were friendly and helpful. Once our table was ready we went to the upstairs dining room. Our waitress was very friendly and explained everything about the place since it was our first time there. We looked through the menu. They had a great selection. The salads and soups were amazing. I had the smoked prime rib was excellent. My wife had the sirloin with mushrooms, which she said was great. Our overall experience was great and definitely will be back.
