“Pretty Good, Nothing Special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

We enjoed our visit here but we were not blown away.

My wife had a panini which was better than my meal. The sandwich was very good. She said she would get it again.

My ribs were okay. They lacked flavor for the most part but were very tender.

The service lacked. She started out very good but it quickly fell down hill.

I would not eat here again.

“Raised prices for CHEAP quality food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

While visiting the Mall of America with my family we went to Tony Romas, the one restaurant that did not have a wait, I now see why. Bar beverages didnt get to our table until the appetizer, entrees came out cold, complained but that was no help, childrens menus are supposed to come with appetizer and dessert yet the servers never prompted this, by the end of the meal we just wanted to get out! Wouldnt recommend this place to friends or family. I worked in the restaurant business while in college and understood that the waiters were getting overwhelmed, so I could understand. But what I didnt understand is why I never once saw management helping.. This could be a major factor in why I disliked my experience.

“Inviting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

We decided to have lunch here, a group of 6. The waitress was very friendly and smiled. If you love blue cheese dressing, theirs was homemade, delicious. We all ordered various menu items and everyone cleaned their plates. I had the sirloin steak, baked potato and salad. Very very good! I tried my friends ribs, very good!!
