Go on Tuesdays for wing night! It's amazing. Great staff, great service, great prices. We can't say enough good things about this place.
Love it here! Great drink specials and good food! The bar staff is always very nice and friendly! A great place to go for a game on tv or on Monday nights for their wing special!!
Not Impressed – Needs alot of customer service improvement.
Sorry you didn't enjoy your visit to Lynnwood Grill. If you would call to let a manger know of any specifics, we are always striving to improve.
Horrible Experience with drinks only – This was my first and last time ever visting Lynnwood Grill. When we first arrived on a Saturday night it was packed. There was hardly any seats at the bar. We ordered a round of drinks while waiting for some seats to open. Once we noticed a group of people leave their seats with no drinks, we took the opportunity and snagged the seats while we could. The bartender said that we could not sit there long b/c those seats were reserved for the people who had just left!! Never have I ever heard of a bar or restaraunt reserving seats for people. The bartender stated that they were out having a cigarette. We blew off the bartender and continued to enjoy our drinks. A few minutes later we had a manager approach us and told us to give up our seats. After wating over 30 minutes for a seat to become available it was now being taken away from us. A paying customer is a paying customer. Needless to say, we will never be back to this establishment for food or drinks due to the piss poor management and "reserving" of seats to people at the bar. This would never fly at any bar in any city, in any state, in the USA. It was all I could do to not cause a scene! Overall, typicaly sports bar w/ tvs but don't expect to find/keep a seat.....unless your a smoker of course!!!
Food & Service Not Good - No Response to Note Sent to Them – Lost our order. After a long wait was disappointed with the food. Said something then but no money taken off the bill. So decided to send them a note via their website so manager could review it and at least get back to me. Never got a response. Felt then that they did not really care. So the result is I will not go back and will tell friends what my thoughts are about their attitude and food quality.
Mixed thoughts – THE WAIT-
Many times in the old building my husband and I tried to go to Lynnwood but there was always too long of a wait. Once we went really late and finally got in. The staff was great when we did and so was the food. So much so in fact that last night we decided to check them out at the new building thinking since they added so many more tables the wait wouldn't be as long. Found that to be the case :)
The first thing I noticed when I went in was how ridiculously loud it was inside and the music seemed to echo off the walls too. Solution: Sit outside upstairs. Good choice overall, the temperature was nice and the facilities are nice up there, however, while better than inside, it was still too loud. I realize it's a bar and all but the point is to meet up with friends and unwind after a long hard day at the office and you have to REALLY yell at one another :(
From my previous experience I know they had good beer and "pub fare." I got beer, appetizers, and a salad because that's what I was craving. The salad was mediocre for the price. It was pretty fresh and it tasted good, it was just not really as much as you would expect to get of "rabbit food" for the price mainly. My husband got a little pizza. Now I knew they were famous for their pizza but I had just never tried it before. Let me say if you want a delicious pizza, this is the place to get it! ZOMGeee yummeh. So the morale of this story is don't get a salad, get a pizza :) Also on the list of things I recommend: pickle chips & dirty chips. I saw someone had complained about the salad dressing, I had plenty of dressing for both my salad and for dipping my appetizers...mind you I don't drown my food in dressing since I like to actually taste the food.
PRICE: A bit on the high side in my opinion.
The Good: nice rooftop dining, great pizza, beer and pub fare
The Bad: too loud!
The meh: salad, price
Thank you for checking out the new spot. We were extremely busy for the first month or so and are levelling off to a normalcy now. Our new staff are trained and we feel like we have most ofthe newness worked out. The acoustics ate one thing that we are working on and feel confident will be better within the next month.
Clueless and unprofessional staff. – The staff is unprofessional. We just walked out as soon as we got in. I am surprised at the long wait times.
Disappointed in new location – Let me first say I was a frequent customer at the old LG location. I loved the food, staff, and neighborhood feel. Despite the physical space of the new location being larger and nicer, many of the things that attracted me to LG were left behind at the old location--specifically a friendly staff, great service, and a feeling that you were welcome--and, most importantly, that they appreciated your business.
I've been to the new location a few times already and dealt with long waits for food and seating, rude host staff, and poor service. (I understand that the wait will be long for seating as people check out the new location but don't act like *you're* doing me a favor by letting me eat there.) I hope the new LG will work out whatever kinks are going on with staffing, food prep, and service because LG has been a local favorite.
It's starting to feel like the Cheesecake Factory (lots of hype and waiting for nothing)--just with better beer.
Sorry you were disappointed. We do still have the same friendly staff as well as a lot more new staff. We feel pretty good about the quality of the staff and the overall level of training and competence. Training is an ongoing process, which we will always be working on and always striving to get better. We hope you will give it another chance.
