“Food . . . Good/Service . . . Not So Much”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

We waited for about 5 minutes for anyone to recognize that we were waiting for a table. Once we got to our table, it seemed that 3 different waitstaff didn't know who was supposed to be taking care of us, so communication failed regarding our order. The food was very good, but the service really was poor. I don't know if I would go back to this restaurant, and Black Eyed Pea really is one of my all-time favorites.

“Nice Restaurant”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

Had a group of 47 here. Wait staff did an ok job handling this group. Some confusion with orders. Getting refills was difficult. Restaurant was well maintained. Parking was good.

“Very poor and slow service”
Reviewed August 22, 2011

I was at the N. Collins Black-Eyed Pea with 14 other Red Hatters from Grand Prairie. We had made a reservation in advance and were put in the back room which was fine. But there was only one waiter, who was very inexperienced to to handle 15 ladies. We are arrived at 5:45 pm on July 30 and at 7:10 pm we still did not have our food. We finally asked for "to go" containers and our checks because we were going to Johnny High's performance at 7:30 pm. We had to ask for the manager to help the waiter give us our checks. It was very unorganized. Several ladies had to take their food with them and eat in the car. At first, it took a long time to even get water. He only gave us the summer menu and not the full menu. There should have been one additional waiter, with more experience, to assist the other waiter. He was nice, but very unorganized. We were very stressed by the time we left and were then late for the 7:30 performance. The food that we ate on the run was good - like it always is - but the dining experience was terrible. Also, the room that we were in was freezing. We asked waiter to turn up the air conditioning. Someone ( a lady) came back and said that she turned off the fan, but couldn't change the thermostat. Several of our members went outside to get warm while waiting for their food. It was very, very cold and uncomfortable.

“Disappointing Visit”
Reviewed October 16, 2008

We had lunch at this restaurant today for the first time since it was rebuilt. It was a disappointing experience. The general menu has not changed much but food and service have. The side dishes were served lukewarm or cold and the entrees had little flavor. The new layout does include several nice eating areas, which is a definite improvement. The restaurant seems to have a loyal regular following that receives a higher level of service than we did. Maybe it was just a bad day but I will not return soon to find out.
