My wife and I enjoyed a tasty dinner but the service was painfully slow.

We ate @ Joe Theismann's restaurant today. We got there around 3:30, so we were able to order from the lunch menu. Everything we ordered was delicious! I had grilled Mahi-Mahi($19), husband and father had Pork chops ($17.50), and mother had Tilapia ($13.25). I'll try to attach pictures. Shared peanut butter pie for dessert. The presentation was perfect. Service was great. Wonderful experience. We'll be back when in the area again!

Stayed at the Embassy Suites and came back from a day sightseeing, so this was a great option. The restaurant on a Thursday night was very busy with a wait of 20 -30 minutes if we wanted to eat inside. Chose to eat outside since the humidity subsided.

Service was very good, no problems there.

Food - I ordered the filet mignon - medium rare. It was cooked perfectly ($26). Other's ordered the crab cakes and it was very good too.

Overall a good meal. Plus we saved 10% off as there was a coupon in one of the guide books we picked up in the hotel.

We just arrived in town and saw Joe THeismann's was right around the corner from our hotel. It was early Friday evening and the place was crowded to the max, mostly with locals. We found two seats at the bar and ordered the filet special at $24 each. They came out a nice size, perfectly cooked, med-rare and medium, as ordered. It came with a salad and side vegetable and mashed potatoes. We thought it was a very good deal. They have specials each day.The gals behind the bar were very friendly and so efficient - I haven't seen that kind of teamwork in a long time. All-in-all, I hope we get to eat there again on this trip. Great place!

Sometimes you just want a good burger and a beer. And that's what you get at Theisman's. When I ordered "medium rare" it was medium rare, perfection! Gotta love that! Nice sized burger on brioche, instead of a regular boring bun, with cheddar and bacon (actually probably not good for me, but that's another story), but really delicious. Fries were a little soggy, so I didn't bother with them. Sit in the back for a quiet meal, or in the bar to watch the game along with the rest of the crowd. I prefer the booths in the bar, for the best of both!
