We had out of state company that remembered MK's fondly from a visit years ago and wanted to take us there for dinner. I called for a reservation and was told it was their 17th night closed for winter repairs but they were reopening the next night and she took my reservation for then. Due to the drive involved, I called the next afternoon just to be sure they were reopening and had my reservation..yes to both. We arrived at 6:15pm, were seated and had a few questions about the different steak options on the menu. The waitress returned to take our order, then came back 5 minutes later to tell us they had no ribeye, New York, or t-bone steaks,only sirloins and filets. This changed our order and we asked another waitperson walking by to tell us again what they were out of. He said prime rib, shrimp, and crab. Not wanting to create a fuss since our son was trying to do something nice for us, we altered our orders but finally all had to shake our heads that a steakhouse would reopen with no inventory. My main complaint is why I wasn't told their menu would be extremely limited when I made the original reservation, or when I called the next day to confirm, or worse than that, why the waitress would not have told us this when seating us or when taking our order! To be fair the steaks we got were good but the usually good sized foil wrapped baked potatoes were lukewarm, not in foil and about the size of a small red potato. I mentioned to the waitress these were the smallest baked potatoes I ever saw and she smiled and said "aren't they cute?" Not to 2 hungry men! Shortly after, I noticed the orders coming out were the large foil wrapped potatoes but had no idea they had those or would have asked for an exchange.
The final surprise was when our son received the check with a note attached with tape that they would now be adding 3% to the bill if paid by credit card. My husband finally couldn't hold it in, and upon leaving, asked someone behind the counter about this charge. The explanation was the new owner asked around about how to handle the credit card charge and decided it was best to just pass it on to the guests. Well, there you go! The final insult of a very disappointing, embarrassing night out with company. We should have listened to the bad reviews we've heard recently about MK's but gave it a chance, and sadly will not return. Too bad..used to be so good.
I have since tried multiple times to call the restaurant to speak with the owner or manager however no one answers.
