“Very good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

This is an upscale sports bar with a very nice atmosphere. The salad I ordered had very fancy greens and other plants and I am never sure what is for decoration and what I am supposed to eat. The service is excellent. The women who work there are stunning and could be supermodels. The overall experience is very good, food, atmonsphere, and service.

“Some service issues”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Great atmosphere and space outside but go early it fills up fast. we went twice and had no issues the first time with a fantastic meal of chicken and noodles.. The second time staff were more frantic and some items were sold out - hence not excellent.good steak but some of my party(of 6) got the wrong dishes and despite the apologies were not impressed.

“Good Dinner and Bar Place with Colleagues”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

I visited Earl's located in Dadeland Mall with business colleagues and found that the dining room is always crowded with locals and families but the bar area is usually open, and the Management will not seat children there. So this made Earl's an ideal place to take business associates for dinner or a drink to discuss business. The bar is always busy, but they have plenty of staff to handle it and the wait for service is rarely very long. The drinks are made well and are well proportioned - not overly generous, but not skimpy either. The wait staff are friendly and very well trained. The food is well prepared always tastes good and like the drinks, are of good portion size. Earl's is a good value for the money. Definitely a place I will return to many times and have.

“Fate brings a wonderful surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

We had just checked in at the nearby Indigo Hotel after a long flight from South America. It was getting late and we were hungry. We were certain the Dadeland Mall would offer a few choices for a light dinner. We saw Cheesecake Factory and parked the rental car. As fate would have it, we were informed of a 30-40 minute wait… Not good; it was getting late. Then we saw Earl’s, with which we were not familiar and figured we’d check they menu. It looked good, business was booming and we seating for two was immediately available.

Earl’s is an indoor/outdoor place, quite large and well-packed on this Thursday evening. There was a cool breeze and though very active and a little noisy, life was good. The staff was very friendly and efficient despite the large crowd. We were informed they were only open a few months and business had been good.

I agree, as the food was great. We had a meal on the plane earlier, so did not want too much and opted for smaller portions. We chose the BBQ Pork Buns and Hunan Kung Pao and both were fantastic. In this case, fate did bring us a wonderful surprise in the form of quality food.

Nearly a month later, my wife is still talking about how much she enjoyed the food. When we got home, we checked their website (http://www.earls.ca/locations) for other locations and found the Florida location is indeed our closest – nearly 1,000 miles by car.
