This is the entire code. The violation was on some liquor bottles that were sweet liquors that we had given to us to do a promo with. They were discarded. You should call the Health Dept. and any of our vendors "This is the cleanest kitchen they have ever worked in" Mention this comment to the bartender and I will buy you a COLD beer! We have 24 beers on TAP and a brand new beer system. Check us out, you will NOT be disappointed. Drink specials everynight and Live music on Fri/ Sat.
This place (used to be) nice! – I used to go here a lot a few years back when it had other owners. I enjoyed going to watch a game with some buddies or to get a beer after work. Since the new ownership took over, I don't go there anymore. The staff and level service is terrible! I ordered a chicken sandwhich that wasn't all the way cooked and when I asked to send it back, the waiter got a manager because I was being difficult! The manager who came over acted even ruder and told me that it was cooked fully and I should just try it. I thought the customer was always right?! Its very unfortunate that this place has new ownership because I used to enjoy going there. Now my money and all of my friends go to JD's Bait Shop right across the sreet.
Awesome New Management & Great Place To Eat – My wife and I were there for the UFC night and the place was hopping. Not only did they host the UFC fight, but they also had a live band afterward. We have been to a similar establishment in the Lower Downtown area many times and this place is, by far, more fun and inviting. From the wonderful food (we were there with other people and everyone was raving about it) to the ridiculous number of flat-screen TVs to the great live entertainment to the incredibly warm and attentive staff and the comfort of the hometown bar that we agreed was missing from the establishment in Lower Downtown, it is extremely hard to find an area where these guys are not providing first-class service. We met the new owners and they are wonderful people that are driven to make this not only a great place to bring your family, but also an exciting destination for top-notch nightlife! And, you can tell that they genuinely want you to feel at home, something you don't get a chain restaurants! If you were a customer of the previous Grand Slam under the old management, or have never been out there to check them out yet (as it was in our case), do yourself a favor and get out there to see what we're talking about!
UFC fight Tonight NO COVER – New ownership and management..
To set things straight – I currently work at grand slam and I want to set a few things back in order. The previous management and some of the staff have been replaced! We are currently under new management who have turned this place around. We have all new flat screen tvs, bands on friday and saturday nights, and many more new fun activities to join. Our staff is very attentive to our guests and we strive to give nothing but the best of service. We have many regulars that we adore and we area always looking to make new friends. I know that some may not have had the best service here before but I encourage the discouraged to come give us another shot. Everything has been cleaned up and revamped including our service. We work hard and play hard here at Grand Slam. The kids are always welcome for lunch and dinner, then when it gets late is when the party starts. I hope to change some minds so that we can prove to be the best bar in town!
Worst restrauent in the world by far – I went to eat there with my kids the other night, and for one i had to wait to be seated for like 10 minutes, they did not even have a host, and then they sat us next to the kitchen, and all i herd was mexicans cussing and i herd the waitstaff complaining about the tables she had, I am a server at a tavern so I know the restrauent business is, and it is unacceptable to hear your own waitstaff complain about you. Then when the food came out, my husbands food was missing, the waitress said his was just taking a little longer then expected, but I know she forgot to enter it in the computer, I mean he had a taco salad , worst service, and then when i complaine i had asked to speak to the manager, and "he was unavailable" but they were slow, no business in there...
Why go here, when you can go to jds – Gross! Will not spend my money there. A whore house in Cambodia is more attractive.
Editorial Review – Family-friendly sports cafe features nightly specials, a full, all-American menu and beers on tap; poker nights, private parties.
Good food, friendly staff, fun sports bar atmosphere – We have been going to Grand Slam off and on for years and have always had good service and good bar food. No this is not Del Frisco, but it doesn't claim to be either. I was amazed to read a previous review saying what horrible service they had and how bad the food is, we have always been seated promptly and treated very nicely by the various servers and hostesses we have dealt with. We have had to wait on food, drinks etc. at times, but only when it was very, very busy. It is much better there now too since the non-smoking ban went into effect in July. That was the only negative thing I ever would have said about the place in the past was the smoke smell in the building. I think it is a fun place to go with a group after work for drinks. Also, if you ever had a problem with the service there ask to speak with the manager, I know him and he would make anything right that you felt was wrong with the service. Give it another try!
Great Sports Bar – We have been going to Grand Slam for about 3 years now. It is a great sports bar. We love the crowd, the service, and the food. But the best thing is the people you will meet there. It's a really great crowd. I'm not sure when the other people came in that gave the bad review, but just like any restaurant, they are staffed for what they expect on that night. If they get busy and they didn't expect it, they can get overwhelmed, like any place. Friday evenings are the busiest times. There are a lot of people there for happy hour.
