“disappointing visit”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

My family and I have been to this restaurant many times. We have always been satisfied with the food and service. That was not the case today. We all ordered different types of sandwiches which came with fries.

My son ordered the mac and cheese with buffalo chicken. He didn't get fries so he ordered a side of fries. The mac and cheese did not disappoint. It was a very large dish and was packed with chicken and flavor. The fries for everyone at the table were a different story. The restaurant used to serve small, fast food style french fries. Today they were steak fries and to say they were undercooked, soggy and downright awful would be an understatement.

That being said once I brought it to our servers attention he apologized and sent his manager right over. He listened to our complaint, offered a fresh batch of "cooked" fries right away. We declined his offer and were grateful that he gave us a refund of $15 off of our bill. This will not stop us from returning but we were disappointed with today's visit.

“Sorry Jake n Joes you Lose”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

Well we tried to eat here the other day . We went in, got seated, were given menus and then no one every came back. The table next to us was starting to roam around looking for their waiter. They had eaten and couldn't get their check. We finally left but on the way out we told the gentleman at the desk that no one ever showed up to take our order. He offered to come over to our table at wait on us himself. I'll say he was super nice but we decided to leave anyway. It looked like everyone was having a problem that night. It was early, 4:30 or 5:00 Saturday night. We went across the street to Texas Roadhouse where they treat you wonderfully .

Reviewed January 25, 2012

Upscale for a sports bar. Lots of TVs, cold beer, and good food choices.

“Crowded, noisy, mediocre food”
Reviewed December 8, 2011

Tables are very squished. People bump into you as they pass by your seat as there isn't sufficient room to walk. Very loud - not sure if due to accoustics, tvs, or just too many people. We were party of 5 on this visit and were seated at a table squished in, that would seat 3 comfortably.
