Made a reservation for me, my wife snd our two young granddaughters. Everything seemed fine until a table for 14 or more was setup near our booth. Our food had been ordered. When the food arrived, delivered by kitchen help, we realized we had no utensils. We waited for our waitress, she did not attend to us for the rest of the evening as she now seemed dedicated to the large group near us, not even eye contact. I went to the waitress station and asked for utensils. No response. I took utensils from nearby tables, food was now cold. Same w condiments. I went to the bar and brought more drinks back to our table, including water refills. I then pulled a metal sliver (kitchen scrub pad for pots & pans?) from my meal. An assistant manager came to out table to ask about our experience. I relayed the above experience. We were credited for our food which seemed OK, but, after further thought, I think the entire tab should have been credited. We dine out frequently, not necessarily with our granddaughters, and this was a very disappointing experience and ending! It seems lost on management that the food had an issue, but to totally abandon service is another separate issue that is unacceptable!

We were greeted right away by the host and seated. We waited 20 minutes for our waitress to get our drink order, but no one came. We were seated close to the bar, so I went up to a bartender and asked her if she could find our waiter. A minute went by and the same bartender came to our table and apologized about our wait and that she was going to go ahead and be our waitress. She was extremely kind and made our experience better. But there was a bus boy and another waitress that walked by our table and he said something along the lines of way to drop the ball and upset our guest. Which she then replied “that’s not my f*cling table so f*ck off!” Mind you I had a child with me, so that made our experience worse. Food was average bar food. But I wish I got the bartenders name because she was amazing and needs recognition!

Everything was great. The only thing is we requested a low table or booth. We were told there were none available. There were many open low tables and booths. I assume it was a staffing situation. But high tops are not good for our son. People coming in right after us got booths and low tables. We were not sure why we were not able to get one. But dinner was good and the waitress was attentive.

Was looking forward to having dinner here as I have been here plenty times before. Mind how things have changed. I was not impressed at all. The new menu was also not impressive, I had the beef tacos and I didn’t like it at all. Lack of flavor and room temperature meat. Service was good but food needs some work. Thanks you and I hope you appreciate this feedback.

This was a great spot to take our 9 and 12-year-old granddaughters. Children's menu had some nice choices at a reasonable price and they loved the pretzel appetizer. We enjoyed the "ultimate quesadilla" and barbecued chicken, as well as well-made cocktails. We will return.

The food was either undercooked or over cooked. Had no flavor and the waiter was not attentive at all. They had us sitting in a booth when we requested a table they gave an attitude and said why. When we explained one of the people in the party was injured and could not slide into a booth they said fine and wanted us some where else. Where we asked if we could sit outside we were left out there for about 20 minutes before someone came out to greet us. Mind you the restaurant was not busy at all.

A friend and I met here for a get together. We had planned to dine outside but it was raining so we dined in. The atmosphere was great and the food was very tasty. We can see it gets energetic when there are sports happening. The service was a tad off - but I think it was a quiet morning and leisurely and it worked for us.

I told the waitress it was my daughter’s birthday upon arrival. At first the service was great . She took our orders and came back shortly after receiving our meals to ask if everything was ok. That was the last we saw of her . 25 min went by as we sat plates empty no waitress in sight . I finally pulled a passing server aside and asked if she left for the night ! He said he’d take care of us and took my credit card . Came back to just the credit card receipt- no itemized bill . My daughter and her friend were never offered deserts that went with their meals either . I brought her there for a special birthday dinner treat and we left completely unsatisfied with the service .

Ordered a JJ Deluxe burger and got a plain burger. Waitress did not seem too worried about it and it was never made right.

Chicken wings seemed like they had been cooked day before and reheated.

Disappointing. Not awful. But I do not plan on going back.

The food at the restaurant arrived overcooked and I asked about cilantro, and the corn had it so I didn’t eat that. They replaced the meat and served another set of sides, and were pleasant about it. However, I had printed the rewards from Open Table and they couldn’t use it.
So all in all, not a great experience.
