i found third stop on the net and was pleasantly surprised with its small town character, excellent service, and great food. i will definitely go back.
I had the pleasure of feasting with the owner at this wonderful neighborhood restaurant. We sampled a variety of dishes of which none were disappointing.
I can't wait to go back for more!
good... – Good food, good service, good price. I just went here the other day and I had a good experience. No 5 stars only because there was no WOW factor.
Happy hour fun – Perfect bar to hang out at. Good beer selection and a great location. Happy Hour get busy but a fun hang. Sweat potato, truffle and regular fries!! I love fries!
3rd Stop Happy Hour... REALLY??? – I'm sorry, but when I thing 'good happy hour', I think Belmont... Fat Fish... places that you go and eat GREAT food, drink GREAT drinks, and when the bill comes, you're amazed at how affordable it all was. At 3rd Stop, that was not the case. My wife and I pulled in at 7:00 (the only time you can find parking) and 'Happy Hour" was wrapping up. We had read that the tuna tartare was great, so ordered 2, a margarita pizza, and sliders, as well as a glass of sangria and a beer. I'm sorry, but for happy hour, for $7, the tartare should be more than 3 tortilla chips. And a Firestone at most other bars costs $5-$6, so $4 isn't a great bargain, either. And at $7, the sangria was middle of the road. All in all, for $60, I was let down. I've had much better experiences for much less, and gotten much more. I will not be going back, as there is nothing special about 3rd Stop.
GREAT FOOD GREAT PRICES – Fun casual atmosphere and great food at very affordable prices.
Good Happy Hour place – This is a fun place to go for happy hour--I have never been at this place after happy hour so I can't speak about that. Good drink specials and food specials!!!! They also have pringles to munch on which is a little different. This place is not always packed, but for the most part a fun place to go and it has a great beer list.
Childlike Managers – I am a doctor and I work across the street at Cedars. I will never go back to 3rd stop and I will be telling my coworkers of their improprieties.
--The valet lost my Prius fob (electronic key) which will cost $351 to replace. They then left my car unlocked while it was parked down the street. To their credit, the valet service has offered to pay and they paid for our taxi. When I told the manager, Camilla, about this she merely stated it wasn't her responsibility because the valet service is not owned by the restaurant.
--Our friend and waitress was suspended by management for 10 days because she offered us three drinks on the house (which we ended up paying for anyway).
--The owner of the restaurant was inexplicably rude to my girlfriend when she tried to talk to him about our friend/waitress. Before she could say two words he put a hand in her face and sputtered off some nonsense before walking away.
Long before I became a doctor I worked in food service. Like in any profession things will go wrong. The job of management is to make your patrons feel good even when things go wrong. In the case of 3rd Stop, the management fails at this. They throw flames on the fire and exacerbate situations.
Can't stand the owner always chasing tail – I used to frequent this place a lot with my girlfriends but after a while it became a bit too much. The owner of this place makes this place undesirable, isn’t that pathetic? He is always drunk bragging about what he has or not and is always trying to pick me and my girlfriends up offering us drinks that we don’t want; we can pay for our own, thank you! He tried to kiss my girlfriend, unbelievable! We had to leave.
One day I saw the chef getting into a fight right outside the restaurant with the bartender, talk about drama in that place. I can’t wait for this place to change owners so I can start going again. I live right around the block and it’s sad I can’t have a place to hang in my own neighborhood. The food is great for a bar and the selection of beers is great.
Drinks good, service not good – I come here at least twice a month and the service needs improvement. I just don't get a friendly vibe. We always order lots of rounds, tip well but service is always sub par. Other than that this place is a cool spot.
