As someone that has ties to the restaurant industry, it pains me to leave bad reviews. However, when a restaurant asks if you'd be willing to move in order to accommodate a larger party, it probably isn't interested in exceeded expectations. As improbable as it may seem, we were told that the room where we were sat was typically used... More

Unfortunately we do reserve a room for meetings and events, Frank, but that doesn't mean we should've rushed you or made you feel uncomfortable. I am sincerely sorry. I hope with time, you'll be willing to give us a second chance because I know we can do better than this. Best, Cindy More

Went there as part of a group party. 40+ people. Service was very good and staff very friendly. They let us rearrange the room. The appetizers and food were very good. I had the Angus Patty meal and thought my green beans were too salty, but otherwise very tasty. Only real downside for me was no echo control. Sounds bouncing... More

I'm so glad we could host you all, Tom! It was a fun time, and it's great to hear how much you enjoyed the Angus Patty. Sorry to hear about the greens -- I'll pass along your feedback to the kitchen. They're usually seasoned to perfection. As for the echo, it can get loud in here when we have larger... More

First of all I want to be clear that our server was very nice, but she was new and was given two large parties back to back. We had a party of 8 and we ordered our food at 5:56 pm. We were ready to order sooner but they were busy so understandably we waited a few minutes. Happy Hour... More

I'm disappointed to hear that you were so unhappy with your visit, Jessica. We try to ease our new servers into the job as much as possible, but some days are just naturally busier than others. I apologize that you were at the receiving end of her learning process, but I hope you'll understand that the confusion you experienced is... More

Went there for dinner one evening and found the food and service enjoyable. We were there before the rush, the service was friendly and attentive, the pot sticker appetizer was really good, as was our meal, and all at a reasonable price. I would certainly return should the opportunity present.

Popped in to Ten Penny at their new location for a quick bite. The space is very comfortable and the service was excellent. We both got sandwiches - turkey club and ham and cheese. We also got their potato chips, served with Ranch dressing - these were excellent! If you're looking for a decent meal at an acceptable price, give... More

Crappy that is quite expensive. Ten Penny was great when it was located at 10th and Pennsylavania. Now it has a reduced menu without all the unique items which made it great.

I'm really disappointed that you're turned off by the changes we made during the move, Neal. We're always looking to keep our menu fresh, and we want anything new to translate as an improvement to you. It sounds like we let you down, and I apologize. I'll keep your feedback in mind as we move forward, and I hope you'll... More

We have eaten here many times over the years and they consistently have good food. Nothing fancy but hard to beat. The angus patty and the chicken fried chicken are really good along with the turkey bagel. They make tasty guacamole and also homemade potato chips. Beer is cold and they mix a good drink.

I've enjoyed the new Ten Penny in their downtown location several times since they moved last year. The food and service are consistently good. We had one of the owners stop by our table today and explain the daily specials. I got the schnitzel (veal -- which I love!) which came with German potato salad and a side salad. The... More

Went here with a group for lunch and found it to be solid, standard American fare with friendly service. This place won't blow you away but it won't disappoint either. Nice iced tea with free refills.

I came to visit Leavenworth and was looking for a good place to eat. I was walking around and asked a kind older gentleman where I could get a good steak. He gave me directions to Ten Penny. I got excellent service from Lisa on Friday and Mary Jo on Saturday. They were outstanding in service and courtesy. The food... More
