Absent waiter

Went for $21 steak night. The size and quality of the NY Strip was very good. However, I asked for Medium temperature and the steak came out barely over rare. I asked for well done fries and they came out mushy. But the biggest knock was the absent waiter. Sure, he was friendly when he took... read more

My family and I got take out on New Year Eve. We had the iceberg wedge salad which was big and good. Somebody had the burger which was huge and good. The other people had the lamb gyro. The lamb gyro was frozen patties which I actually like and it tasted quite good.

So called 1/2 chicken entree was one thigh. When told to waitress and chef they told us we were wrong. Unbelievable bad attitude. No compensation was offered. Won't go back.

Went out for dinner on a Thursday night with my four year old grandson. He wanted the grilled cheese and French fries and finished the whole meal. I had the burger special and thoroughly enjoyed it. Carol was our server and made our experience even nicer, we will be back!

Out for dinner treat this dark November night in the Hamptons and immediately on entering this local fine pub/ steak house, one is immersed in a friendly and happy place which quickly lifts the Autumn gloom from one's tired spirit. Tap beers from Montauk and Brooklyn served just right. Great curry beef lentil soup, deliciously thick and hearty. Perfect (discounted... More

A pleasure to find such a nice, low-key place with great food, good service, reasonable prices, and nice people. So many places in the area can be overnpriced and pretentious, but this restaurant is really a pleasure. The nightly specials are real bargains, and desserts were yummy. Thanks for a relaxing, delicious dinner!

We have found a new favorite Sunday evening restaurant. Sunday's are steak night so you can choose which ever your favorite is. And if you're not into beef the salads are huge. But do yourself a favor and get some wonderful crunchy fries.

My husband and I enjoyed an absolutely delicious meal at Dowlings last night for a much-needed date night. I have severe food allergies, so dining out is a challenging feat at times. Although my husband has dined there previously, this was my first time. After explaining my allergies (all mammal meat, dairy and their byproducts) to our waiter, he checked... More

It took almost two hours for us to get our food while being entertain by amateur performers. My father can't have pepper and informed the waiter of this, so the waiter brings him a steak with pepper all over it. The food was good but the service was horrible.

Thought we would try this place. Greeted at the door by Mr. Non Personality. Finally got seated. Although they were not busy , we sat at our table for over 10 minutes and were never acknowledged by any body including the server. Decided they were not interested in our business and left.
