This was my first trip to the new location. I was pleasantly surprised with the renovation of the former restaurant. I thought the vibe was very casual, but professional. It was busy.... filled with all sorts of locals and out-of-town folks, but the staff was accommodating and not rushed at all. I had a delicious fish dish, skate, and it... More

Thyme square in Quincy, IL used to be something special. Local, fresh menus and wonderful. Since their move to a bigger space, which is nice they seem to have lost sight of most things. The food menu is the same from what feels like 5 years ago. Before they moved I had orange juice that was from frozen concentrate at... More

Hi Brandon, It sounds as though we dropped the ball during your last visit. I apologize- our goal is to always exceed expectations and it seems like we missed the mark this last time. Getting quality products that are not locally sourced (such as orange juice) to Quincy has been an ongoing issue we have battled since we opened in... More

Great, unique food. The Macao s are equal to any I've had even from the most posh bakeries. I love how they utilize the local resources. Menu is a bit limited, but always good food.

Incredible place. I've been here multiple times in the past, and we had our rehearsal dinner here a month or so after they changed locations. We couldn't have been happier! There was a slight snafu with the printing of the menu that didn't bother us (more funny than anything), and after the event, the owner sent us a lovely note... More

We love finding the restaurants who care about food, spend time to carefully construct menu items from raw ingredients, and support others in their community! Focusing on the best, healthiest, and most delicious seasonal ingredients available!! This restaurant was modern, staff was friendly and knowledgeable, and the food was outstanding!
