The atmosphere was as expected. The bartender did not know how to make a Bahama mama so we informed her on how to do so. Food came out within minutes, I use to be a cook, all this tells me is that the food is pre cooked and their microwave chefs. The deviled eggs and prime rib were pretty good., however, the rest of the appetizers and pulled pork, beans and the giant potato were rather bland and just didn’t taste very good. Our server was not very friendly and was clearly in a rush to get us outta there. I won’t go back and for anyone who does I really hope your experience was better than my 30th birthday dinner experience. :(

On the evening he went to Tin Rooster for dinner the restaurant was short staffed. We never received our initial drink order until after our dinner arrived. The food was excellent. We never received a discount for the service. The waitress was doing the best she could but she had too many tables and could not keep up. The manager never came to our table to apologize either.

The atmosphere was fun and cute! The food was delicious. We read about it before we made reservations and it seemed like it would be more of a music/loud establishment but it was honestly pretty quiet. Music videos played on the screen but the music was just quiet. Barley able to hear it. Overall, we had a great experience. Would definitely go back. Hoping to go see a live band next time.

After having made reservations ahead of time and requesting accessible seating for a friend in a wheelchair, it was disappointing to get there and have them tell us they hadn’t seen the request for accessible seating. We were then told we would have to wait for others to finish eating before we could be seated. Not acceptable. Twenty-five minutes later we were finally seated. Needless to say we will not be returning to the TinRooster! This was not OpenTable’s fault. Apparently the people doing reservations at the restaurant couldn’t take the time to read the complete reservation.

It was my first and last time there the server never even came back to check on us. They sat us at a table so close to another couple I could hear the whole conversation. When asked for a refill on my wine it took 20 mins and we had to flag her down just to get her attention to ask because she never came back to our table

My friend and I got there to eat after having reservations. Waited 20 minutes to have someone come over to take our order, that was after I said something to a nearby waitress that was cleaning off another table. (Lexi, did a great job and was very accommodating) While that waitress that was suppose to be waiting on us chatted with the people at the table next to us, talking about doing this after work, what she was going to wear, etc. The guest relations worker came over and chatted with the table next to us as well talking about a vacation that she had just taken. Over all very disappointed in the service that we were suppose to have.

Hubby had the Ribs and the whipped potato Salad with bacon .The Ribs weren't warm and they were way overcooked and dried out Potato Salad way to much bacon and either mayo or sour cream just to creamy . I had the fried fish and fries which were overcooked .. Wine wasn't even 6 ounces in the glass . For a BBQ place not good .

This was our 1st visit to the Tin Rooster and we were not disappointed. Our waitress was very friendly but, we did ask for a bag to put our to-do boxes in their Upstate Tavern automatically gives you one and it would've made visiting a little longer more convenient.

Awesome food, way too much for 1 person so we shared the "3 meat, 3 side" plates and was still full! The turkey and pulled pork was great, the brisket.....well, not a good night for that! All the sides were great. Our server was awesome and she added to the great meal

Was at the casino for Reba concert. Made reservations and we were seated immediately. However, after placing our food orders 45 minutes passed before the waitress said I think they lost your ticket other people came in after you and already have their food. She started to walk away and I asked her to go check. 15 minutes later our food came out and my husband’s side was missing. Food was luke warm. We were not impressed. They did not look overly busy for a concert night.

We were seated about the time of our reservation and we immediately placed a drink order- four beers, one cocktail, one soda, three waters. The waitress was back for our food order within minutes even though the drinks were not ready yet. We told her that we had show tickets at 8:00 (it was before 7:00) and wondered if we would have time to get meals but she assured us we would have time as she would rush our order. 20 minutes after our drink order, a manager came by and apologized that we had not yet received our drinks. Five minutes later, the beers arrived. Five minutes later, the sodas arrived. The waters did not arrive until I asked for them later.
The food came out in a reasonable time and was very good. However, 2 of the 6 dinners were absolutely incorrect and we had to explain what was wrong. The same manager as before apologized and disappeared to get us correct meals. The quaint porcelain camp cup holding utensils only had 3 forks despite the table seating 6. We grabbed the cup on the empty table next to us and it only had 2 forks despite being set for 4 people. No waitress or manager checked t make sure we had what we needed so after waiting at least 5 minutes, I went to search for a fork. Behind us was a table of 4-5 managerial personnel who were watching the floor. I confronted them with the issues of waiting 30 minutes to get a soda, getting 2 of 6 meals wrong, and having to scrounge for a fork while at least 4 managers were sitting there on a Friday night. While the food was good, there was a complete lack of service, and even when confronted, we didn’t even receive a complimentary drink or discount on our order. Having been in the restaurant business myself, I know this is a lack of training, leadership and management- but only at the Tin Rooster because all of the other restaurants were extremely attentive. I can’t even completely fault the waitress as we interacted with at least 5 managers who also failed to correct the issues with service.
