I've been going to Jasper for years, but have never stopped in and tested out Evil Dave's.
My overall review on the restaurant as a whole is pretty positive. The food was great, the service was pretty good and the atmosphere was relaxing. It's kind of pricey for what it is, but they do have really big portions, so it's alright value. They also are very alert of the uprise in people being sensitive to wheat/gluten; I really like seeing a restaurant take this initiative and responsibly post which foods have come into contact with said allergens.
The only two complaints I have about this place are the following:
- The decanters that water is served in are extremely filthy, and it wasn't just ours. I examined the other tables and could actually see that they were just as dirty. I don't know if it's something in the water or if they're simply just not cleaned properly, but it kind of irked me.
- Their debit machine was down and the only option was to leave and walk down the street to the bank to take cash out. I know this might not seem like a big fault, but in my eyes and for the sake of convenience this was some what frustrating. It also was irritating that they didn't compensate for their machines being down; I'm not one to carry cash ever, so you can see as to why this would bother me.
Other than that, I was impressed with the dining experience and would suggest it to others on the basis that Evil Dave's takes these complaints into consideration.

Blake, first of all thank you for your review, we appreciate all feedback good and bad. We have addressed the issue with the decanters, it was hard water stains and we are now polishing these after washing and they look 100% better. As for the debit machines being down, your frustrations are our frustrations. We recently changed service providers and have had some issues. Needless to say that has been dealt with as well and the problem remedied! We hope to see you again soon.
