TERRIBLE – Food selection is nothing impressive, yet the end product is terrible (bland, but still managed to make us sick to our stomachs) and service is THE WORST!! Even if they don't happen to be out of 1/2 the items on the drink menu, the list is nothing exciting- and the employees are rude. The place is dirty. (The bathroom is disgusting!) There are SO many good restaurants within walking distance of Neighbors, so I highly recommend to walk AWAY from that place... What a waste of a patio!!
***Bad Attitudes, Bad Service & Bad Food*** – DO NOT EVER ORDER ANYTHING HERE "TO GO"!!! I had to drive back to the restaurant three times to get my order correct. The bartender "John" was challenging and argumentative to say the least regarding the state of my food which I finally gave up on, on the third trip and took back to the restaurant. In hindsight, I should have probably checked my order, but ask yourself; should a customer have to go through every box in the bag to make sure the order is correct?? The chicken strips (which were left out of my original order) were cut in half, dry and looked like they had been left sitting out. The tator tots dripped in grease. The biscuit that came with the omelet was hard as a brick and inedible. John the bartender showed blatant disregard ignoring any concern over the condition of my food and passed me off to the on duty manager who unbelievably also showed no interest or concern. While I have lived in the neighborhood for seven years and have been to Neighbors numerous times, I have noticed a dramatic change in the care and concern for the patrons who frequent this restaurant. The restaurant is lacking good customer service, good food and shows a genuinely bad attitude. This neighborhood restaurant which once reflected the VA Highland charm & character, has clearly gone downhill to becoming a bad neighbor.
Great place and service...with ONE exception – My husband and I love Neighbor’s Pub and have been going there for years. We have always enjoyed the service and the food is great especially for a late night menu. Every time I go I will sit at the bar or if I’m with a group of friends I sit at a table and my experience has been great. BUT recently when I’ve gone there I have been waited on by a server named Robert. I don’t know who this boy is but I have never wanted to walk out on a tab so much in my life. His serving capabilities are subpar and not only did he bring our drinks with his dirt filled nails but he spilled my husband’s vodka tonic directly into his lap. More importantly … His hygiene is terrible. I can smell him a mile away and when he came up to the table he was scratching his unwashed hair and picking at his ears. We immediately change seats or leave if there is no one else around to serve us. My husband and I think this is a serious heath department issue. No one with hygiene that bad should be allowed to walk around let alone serve food or drink. I don’t know how this boy got hired but if I were the owner I wouldn’t have even taken his application. AGAIN… we love going to Neighbor’s, just never ever sit at a table with Robert.
they need to start over – I attend this so called "bar " on a friday night .I was attracted from the number of people on patio from the street decided to it check out.First impression the building looks as if was a attacked by pop up ads.Patio furniture looks cheap . concrete pads that i tripped over on my way in.Sat at the bar service was quick and polite which was a plus.good selection of beer .looked like a "cheap" attempt at a hooters minus the pretty girls.that place is a true dive!!!!!!don't waste your time
Craft Beer – I hang out in the highlands a lot and like to drink good beer. It is hard to find a place with a real craft deer selection ( blue moon and stella don't count). Finally Neighbor's has stepped up and added 10 new taps. With Rogue Chocolate Stout, Maredsaus, Ommegang Witte, Festive, Abita Jockamo and others it a breath of fresh air.
Don't go late – It was 10:50 pm and I wanted to get a drink and some chips in salsa while I waited for a friend to get off work in the area. Since I was heading down Highland Ave from the ponce side I decided stopping by Neighbors would be easy. I bellied up to the bar and ordered a drink and asked for a menu. I saw you had chips, salsa and cheese dip and decided that was close enough. A few minutes later my food arrived and Meg told me that kitchen had actually just closed and she was 'lucky' to get the order. A few minutes later after eating the very meager portion of salsa to go with the less than fresh chips I asked if I could get some more salsa. Meg went back to the kitchen, came back and said no, sorry. After I finished my drink i told Meg I would have gone somewhere else if I had know your kitchen was closed / about to close. She got angry and very defensive about it. Her attitude was rude and unapologetic. She told me 'You can't tell us when to close our kitchen.' It was a very negative experience and next time I want food late, I'll go somewhere that wants my business.
Trivia ruined by a terrible host!!! – I (used to) love trivia night but I've stopped going. Mostly because the dude that hosts the trivia lacks a sense of humor and the ability to add correctly. He always messes with our points and even goes so far as to censor our names. I mean, seriously buddy, who made you in charge of our freedom of speech. Get over yourself, it's a bar and we're just having fun! I HATE THAT GUY!!! It a shame because we used to go every week and we've moved to the Thinking Man's trivia night until this guy gets fired. Ugh!!
An awesome bar ruined by trivia-nazi – This place used to be so much fun. The wide open deck was overflowing with cool, edgy people, especially on Tuesday night when they do team trivia. It seemed like there was a competition to have the most witty team name that was relevant to current events, risque, or just borderline insane. The atmosphere was fun and wild.
That was until Neighbors decided to go for a more family friendly image and imported a trivia host who exercises more censorship than the FCC. Team names are censored, he's unfailingly nasty, and seems to hold grudges for no particular reason. Trivia as a result has dwindled to a regular group of friends of the host who miraculously seem to win every week.
In spite of that, the wait staff is attentive, friendly, and attractive. The menu is mediocre (a step up from pub grub) and the drinks are reasonably priced for the area.
I'm shocked that an iconic place like this has decided to go family friendly, especially considering the fact that it's 21+ after hours. I'm voting with my feet - there is no shortage of places in the area to drink beer, sit outside and play trivia. When Neighbors decides to go edgy once again, maybe I'll change my opinion.
Fun trivia night! – Been to trivia night on Tuesdays and it's always a good time - would recommend getting there early to form a team or join in on one - for the most part everyone there is really friendly!
I used to be a regular about 3 years ago but moved to Dover Delaware. We got to know Joey, Jill, Kelly and Mike as our bartenders at Neighbors Pub. They were so good to us. It was our favorite local bar.
I was in town all this week for business and visited the bar 3 times and had a terrible experince each and every time I was there. What happened to this place? The food has gone down hill, the bartenders were rude and it took nearly 20 minutes for me to get 2 beers on Friday night! On one visit, I had to sit and wait for a beer while the bartender talked to a waitress for 10 minutes!
Althought the bar looked like it used to it really lost the feel it used to have. Work on the food a little, improve customer service, and bring back the old staff. Please!
