We love Six Ninety One! Since after Covid, it is no longer offering evening hours, we rarely get the opportunity to experience the excellent food and service. I was happy to take it all in again -- the collaboration, education, and success of the program...top-notch!

Let's see, the Library dosen't serve lunch and I haven't been to Thirty Four Bar & Bistyro yet, so I believe that Grayson County College's Six Ninety One Restaurant is the best choise for lunch in Grayson County. Currently open Wed and Fri fare is more than ample and always superbe. Even Escoffier would proud.

Loved our lunch! Can't wait to come again. So glad you offer this! Because you asked, and I know y'all want to keep learning how to be the best: It seemed like the creme brulee was missing sugar The tenderloin was over cooked; requested medium. Scallops were so yummy!

The food was wonderful. I don't know how, with the price of filet being what it is, that the paltry price of $15 per meal even covered the cost of the meat (and it was a generous portion) let alone the accompaniments. I had the scallops and they were also first rate. My wife and I are still hesitant to eat out, and our request for take-out was immediately honored, a win-win since we could then have a glass of wine with our meal in the comfort of our home. (It helps to live only 5 minutes from the restaurant.) We wish the program and the future chefs it is training all the best for the future.

The kids did a great job at presenting and were very respectful and kind, the only small thing lacking with the service was that our water did get empty (hence the 9). The lamp chops were stellar as well as the key lime pie - the shrimp appetizer just had a funny after-taste (hence the 9). The ambience was, at times, noisy, but that is to be expected in an open room that has no wall barriers. I thought y'all did an excellent job - I was very impressed and had a great time!

Food was perfect. Liked the salad, muffins and bread pudding with ice cream best. Presentation perfect. Waiter, Riley, was very nice, but he made a few minor serving mistakes: Removed the butter plate before bringing an additional muffin. Placed drink on left side instead of right. Spoke too quitely to understand at times. Wasn't sure what sugar-free drinks were available but quickly found out. Suggestions: Riley must overcome his shyness. May only be a lack of confidence. He will need a little coaching. I am confident that he will be a fantastic server with practice. Riley's positive traits: He has no traits that might impede his success. He's attractive and takes care of himself - this will serve him well. He has perfect timing, not hovering or inattentive. He has manners. He could smile a bit more to make customers comfortable. Once he gains confidence and speaks a bit louder, there is nothing he needs to overcome. No odd hair, tatoos, piecings, etc. - nothing anyone might find objectionable. I'll be back!

Overall the experience was great. I loved the salad and the burger. I also enjoyed the creme brulee. There was a bit of a hiccup with my not knowing that there were strawberries on the dessert, but I was pretty full already, and the part that I did eat was delicious. The wait staff was friendly and highly personable. The only issue I had service wise was that my waiter forgot to remove the dishes and silverware as the meal progressed. No big complaints though.

Crab cakes were satisfactory. I ordered my sirloin medium rare, and it came out very well done. My wife's fish was red/undercooked in center and had to be re-cooked. Baked goods (croissants & yellow cake deserts) were very good and perfectly prepared. Portions were adequate and prices extremely fair...I gave donation.
