We had 11 of us on a Saturday Night. Our reservation was met and a table was set for us. That was the only good thing about the evening. Our waitress tried but she was invisible. Within the first 20 minutes we had a pitcher...of water that was good for half the table. Some drinks came after about 30 minutes. Appetizers arrived after 45 minutes. The onion soup was overloaded with pepper. Someone sent it back as it was not edible and it was still not taken off the bill. There were tables of 4-6 people in and out that had their food, drink etc with no problem. After about 60 minutes we had more water but still not enough for the table. The only good entre was the burger. Some people just flat out gave up with their meals as it was awful. a Few entrees were brought out cold. One was sent back and that was finally brought out hot but it was after everyone was already done. They took off 10% on appetizers and 20% on the cold entree. If they couldnt handle the reservation they should have said so. It was not crowded and other tables had no problems, so we just didn't get it. We complained throughout the night to no avail.More

Very disappointed this evening. We have had many great meals at the Gem and we're hoping to take our son and his fiancee there this evening. We arrived at 8:10 only to be told they were not taking any "walk-ins", only reservations. The frustrating part...is they had misunderstood the reservation for the couple before us, thinking their reservation was for 8 people not 2 people at 8. Hopefully just a staffing issue and we will be able to take family back later.More

Nothing much to choose from in the area so we gave it another try from coming back in 8 years. Was such the wrong decision. Upon walking in, we were told by the hostess that it will be a little bit for silverware. What, I’m...sorry, what do you say, You don’t have clean silverware right now? Oh boy not a good start. Since there was nothing around, we decided to stay and pick something that didn’t need forks to start. The nachos with chicken were horrible. Dry n salty. There was like an old bay seasoning on the chips that made it extremely salty n hardly any toppings. Buy the time we were ready to order, the silverware was clean. The beer Mac n cheese was horrible, again salty, n the Portabella wrap was oily n soggy. It Was the worst lunch I ever had and it was our last day there. What a shame. And On every menu at every restaurant which was not much out there, always had Mac and cheese. What’s the deal PAMore

We called after getting an order together for our entire family, and was told by the most uninterested employee ever that "well, tonight we just aren't offering take out".... the menu says 10% gratuity added, I guess that's not enough for packing a bag. I...can't comment on the food because the service turned our stomachs.More

I ate at the pub downstairs. The barkeep was more interested in talking to co-workers than attending customers. However, the burger and beer were good. Daily specials on the menu are no longer offered due to rising costs in the current economy. So, a burger...and beer were $20.More

This brew pub made a fun lunch outing. There is a spacious outdoor area overlooking a peaceful backyard, good local beer, and the best veggie burger I've ever had- called The Impossible Burger. Fries were cut like little boats, "dipper fries", also delicious. The ShawneeCraft...beer IPA and the amber ale were both very good. Service was a little slow. I'd eat here again.More

Went here for lunch while in the area. Service was prompt, drinks were excellent. We only had appetizers but qty was filling & excellent. Really nice place to have a bite. A little slow cleaning up tables & when we got there late afternoon, there...were few other patrons so tables should have been cleaned up from earlier. As we were leaving, they finally started to clean up tables.More

I went to the Gem for dinner with a group of friends. I quickly became apprehensive about the evening because we were automatically told a list of items on the menu that they didn't have. On the list of things was ice!!!! We asked a...receptionist a question about their smoking policy outside and she quickly said "I don't know" and just walked away. We had to ask her to find out and she never came back with an answer. As the night progressed, things did not get better when we received our food. My friend ordered the filet Mignon and received a mountain high portion of mash potatoes and her filet mignon was 4 oz rather than 8. Also, another friend received canned beats on her salad. Never again will I go to this restaurant.More
