“Fun Place”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

Went here with three teenage boys. lol The steamed shrimp was great along with the wings. Boys bought a backpack which included a calander, tee shirt and shot glass for $20. That was a great deal. Will go back again.

“Great place for people watching with average service ”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

Came here during a girls getaway during Memorial Day weekend. Like other reviewers have mentioned, it is seat yourself which was a non-issue for indoor seating on the day we visited; for broad walk seating we ended up stalking a couple of tables. No biggie, we were there to hang out and standing across the broad walk from the seating area while waiting for tables to finish was actually fun watching all the characters walking by on the broadwalk.
We finally sat down at a table and ordered our food. The appetizer came fairly quickly, however, the waitress took forever to come over to take our orders for entree; she was too busy attending to the group of guys that just sat down at the table next to ours. It was not clear whether she was just hustling for tips or she actually wanted to party with those guys, either way she was much more attentive to them. One person in our group did not get the fries she ordered with her wings when we were all near finished with our wings, so we ended up canceling the fries. I do have to say that the food we did get was decent, especially the fried pickles.
Overall, this is a great place to people watch and have some decent apps and wings, washing it all down with some cold beer. Just don't expect great service. And I'm ashamed to admit, I would pretty much put up with almost any kinda service just as long as they make the fried pickles right :)

Went for a beer with two other couples. One couple had a plate of fries which they said were not good. The girls were distracting in that you felt sorry for them. High squeaky voices with their butts hanging out of their shorts. They are their own walking joke. I guess that's what Hooters is all about though. Would not recommend.

“Great Food.... Slow Service”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

The food was great, the service not so much. When you walk in the door, it's seat yourself, but there is not sign to indicate this. Soooo you stand there looking odd for a minute until someone walks by and tells you this. Once you get to the tables (if you can find a clean on) the waitress takes quite a while to get to you. Our waitress didn't have a pen, so she took a crayon from the table to write our whole order. If you want a refill, wait...need napkins..., wait..... want the check...,wait. The service was very slow.

“Worst experience I've had at a hooters ”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

my friends & I went to have dinner. They were definitely busy and servers seemed overwhelmed. Overheard multiple tables that wanted to complain & speak to a manger that was "too busy" - what?
There was a bachelor party that was happening at tables near us (about 5 feet). During the "bachelor" hazing someone from the group accidentally broke 2 glasses right behind our table. Glass went everywhere (maybe in our food, still not sure). We watched and waited over 5 min before the 1st waitress came by, saw it and walked away. We flagged down another waitress and told her, she looked and acknowledged and then went back to her tables. The waitress that was taking care of the tables that broke glass came by saw it, asked them what happened and then walked away. Then our waitress and the other two stood across the room and talked about it. (Be aware that no one had cleaned it up yet/ there was a broom about 3 feet away and it was almost 10 min now). Finally the assistant general manager came by saw it and immediately cleaned it up. We thanked him and when he asked how we were... Well it wasn't good. I haven't even had a chance to mention that the food took borderline too long to get to our table, food was mediocre at best and the whole glass situation made us very uncomfortable (glass in food maybe, everyone is wearing flip flops, kids walking by).
When we expressed our concerns to Juan (the AGM) he felt terrible and offered a round of drinks. They also discounted the bill. For my friends who had never been to a hooters before I can assure you that they won't go back and I will think about it very hard next time. If all you want to do is get really drunk and eat wings then go here. If you want semi decent food and enjoy your friends then don't.
