Reviewed March 25, 2013

Hey get your mind out of the gutter. There are several different restaurants in the area that offer musical entertainment for just about any tastes.

“Very few restaurants/shops”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Very little is open in the West End. This used to be the place to see in Dallas, but you can skip it. Very little is open. We were there on a Sunday during lunch, and couldn't find an open restaurant. Streets were deserted. Visit Uptown instead.

“Ghost town yet not one!”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

This area of town is a ghost town. There is one overpriced western store and a few restaurants that are mediocre.

“Interesting Places for a Walk and Lunch”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Variety of places to dine, easy access for a walk downtown. We ate at Sonny Bryans BBQ one time and the food was good, they had a guy that made Poodles out of balloons for a fun experience.

It's close enough to shops and and Dallas Aquarium to spend time, i wish that they would add a few new places. I think they have a movie theatre by the Old Spagetti Warehouse that could be a dinner theatre or Circ du Soleil, Symphony etc. Dallas could be more creative.

“Boring Tourist Trap”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

When I was in my late teens/early 20s, I loved West End. They used to have awesome outdoor concerts there, like the free Van Halen concert I went to in the early 90s, and lots of other cool events. The clubs were better (or at least, seemed better because I was younger) and they had a lot of restaurants and if you were into arcades, a pretty cool one inside the building. Over the years, it became way too touristy for me. It's tourist-trap chain restaurants with mediocre, overpriced food and the clubs that are left are just sad. Even on a Friday/Saturday night after a Mavs or Stars game, you'll be lucky to find more than 25 people inside any of the bars or clubs over there. I worked downtown for several years and we were hard-pressed to find a place to eat for lunch in the West End, so no wonder they're hurting so bad. They need to bring back the outdoor concerts and events, get rid of the stupid tourist trap restaurants, and rely on locals more than tourists to help keep them in business.
