“Poor service, lots of food mixups”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2011

I would like to highlight a few problems we had with our meals and service tonight. There were four adults and one child at our table.
1. Customer “A” ordered the Sausage Pasta.
2. Customer “B” ordered Fish with House Salad in place of Chips, with Blackberry dressing.
3. Customer “C” ordered Vegie Nachos with salsa in place of the sour cream.
4. Customer “D” ordered Beer/Cheddar soup and wings (two lbs); medium wings with hot sauce on the side.
5. Customer “E” (4 year old) ordered kids pasta with Tomato sauce.

I. Before our meals arrived, the server came to the table and advised us that she saw our meals were up and stated that she would bring them shortly. She asked us if we required anything else.
a. We don’t understand why when the server saw the meals were ready, she did not deliver them.
b. All meals arrived approx. 5 min later.
II. When Customer “A’s” meal arrived, it came as a Sausage Pizza and a bowl of soup. This was immediately taken back by the staff. Approx. 5 min later the pasta arrived and all was fine.
III. Customer “B’s” meal arrived without the salad. When our original server came back about 5 min after the meals were delivered she realized the salad was not there and said she would take Caesar Salad out. We advised the server that it was a House salad with blackberry dressing. The salad never arrived until approx. 15 min later, long after the fish was consumed.
IV. Customer “C’s” meal arrived luke warm with two sour cream and no salsa. We advised staff of the no salsa and they said they would bring one. One salsa arrived shortly after, then a plate with two salsa arrived approx. 5 min after that.
V. Customer “D’s” soup arrived with a thin crust of dried crust on the top. The soup was luke warm. Wings were warm to touch on the outside, luke warm when eaten.
VI. Customer “E” meal arrived fine, but was never offered a desert.
VII. The server never came back to check on us until the house salad arrived, at that time we advised her that most things were cold. She said she would tell her manager.
VIII. Our bill reflected none of these issues and we were not approached by a manager.

“Loud, noisy, but good menu”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2011

It seems to be a place with a lot of kids. A lot of ambient noise. But good food and good menu. Would love to come back when things are a little more quiet and relaxed.
