Very poor service, rude waitresses. – It isn't unusual to find nobody working at the front desk here. There is even a sign asking customers to meet with the bartender in order to be seated, though doing so rarely gets you anywhere in a timely fashion.
I have tried eating here several times, only to receive a stern, cold shoulder on every occasion. There was one visit that stood out in particular though, and wound up raising quite a few red flags. I came here with my girlfriend and the bartender told us that we would be seated shortly. We waited for over an hour and were never seated and received no service, despite many tables being clean and available. The workers gave us a bunch of strange looks and eventually one of the waitresses came and rudely told us to leave. So we took our business elsewhere.
I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone, no business should treat their customers this way.
Good Escape from the Mall or Hospitals – This is not your average Beck's Prime. This is a packed sportsbar in the middle of the week at lunch with a full bar. It reminded me of Champp's Americana a little.
You will need to order at the bar if you are doing take out, and also expect to tip. Expect to wait and face the typical mall parking challenges.
The service was pretty decent. All the employees looked pretty busy. Our Ahi Tuna burger, onion rings, and Steak burger were better than their location's fare off of Augusta Drive.
Bored and don't know what to do at 3 PM during the week? From 3 PM to 6 PM, Monday through Friday, one can enjoy their happy hour featuring:
$2 Domestic Draft (20oz. Pints)
$2 Off Your Favorite Cocktail
$3 Off Any Glass of Wine
$3 Chips, Queso, and Salsa
$4 Wings – Mild, Medium, Hot, or Sweet
$5 20oz. Frozen ʻRitas
$6 Hand-Battered Chicken Tenders
$7 All Star Platters
They have an excellent late happy hour. I bet a bunch of mall employees gather here after closing down the shops. Here is their dine-in 9 @ 9 deal, from 9 PM - 11 PM, every night, featuring Nine $3 Deals:
$3 Draft Beer (20oz. Pints)
$3 14oz. Frozen ʻRitas
$3 14oz. Frozen Bellinis
$3 Santa Rita Cabernet
$3 Jäger Shots
$3 Well Drinks
$3 Wings – Mild, Medium, Hot, or Sweet
$3 Toad Hollow Chardonnay
$3 Chips, Queso, and Salsa
Poor service – Lunch time bar service was bad, had two beers and had to wait ,over 5 minutes to get another beer, both times. ( I was the only one drinking) Will not go drinking here any more, to many other bars, that don't keep you waiting.
Really Good – I get the blue cheese burger with onion rings. The burger is flavorful and juicy and the onion rings are the best side. The TKO, Chili-Cheese, Bubba, and Bill's burgers are all alright but the regular Cheeseburger, sometimes ordered with Prime Sauce, is a good safe second bet.
Good food- poor service – Some coworkers and I caught a movie about two months ago at memorial city mall. After it let out around 10pm- we found this place- for some late night eats and beer. I believe it was open till 11pm or mdight. we walked it and we did not recieve a welcome or seating so we grabbed a bar table. eventually the bartender came over to seat us and take our orders. The food was pretty good and worth the price, but the service was poor. I had a traumatic experience here and walked by this restaurant yesterday and thought to write this review.
I was wearing some very fitted skinny jeans and specifically sat at a barstool so that my back was facing away from all the patrons seated- in fact the only people that could see me from behind were the bartender and waitstaff. A waitress walked up to me as I am sitting with my coworkers and said- ummm .. you need to pull your pants up, as there are men here who are looking at you from behind....
I was SO embarassed, one for not being aware of this, and two for the very innapropriate way this waitress dealt with the situation- saying this right in front of the 4 guys I worked with! Would it be so hard to pull me aside and mention something AWAY from my company and in private? Also- there was hardly anyone in the restaurant and it was 10:30 at night?!
I will not return to the place again. I expect good service when I pay good money.
this place is great! – This place is great! The bacon cheeseburger is a must have.
