You have to be kidding :-( – The loud verbal assault by the barman at least got the hostess to get us a table, however being purposely ignored by every waitresses was too much to bare, definitely not the place for kids (unless they enjoy watching a barman getting knocked out). Avoid like the plague.
Sooooo Awsome!!!!!!!! – i dont know what you guys are complaning about iv been here a million times and each time i hade great food and a lt of fun!!!the waiters and waitreses are so funny i went for a birthday party and they sang a song for her when they were dancing on the window sills. it was so cool. I go at least twice a year and every time iv been satesfied so to all those people who wrote bad and mean reviews you have no sence of humor, noone or nothing can make you happy and your just wierd for not liking it!!!!!!!!!! ( sticking tongue out)
Can I give this place less than 1 star? Anyone giving it more than a zero, they work there and are saving their jobs. – The place is the worst. The people working there are total tampons. The people that eat there only go once for the nostalgia... what a shame to burn your hard earned money eating cardboard.
Not my cup of tea...... – I have been there a few times and I honestly have not enjoyed one thing I ever ordered on the menu. The kids like it, they get a kick out of the wait staff and costumes. But I even felt that they were a little too rude, they got my order wrong one time and they were so nasty about fixing it! I understand that they put on a show for everyone but come on it is still a restaurant and I still expected much, much better service and food for the cost.
Funny, rude wait staff, it is part of the ambience – The food is so, so, particularly on a busy night. The ambience is fun and lively. Waiters are wise cracking and intentionally rude, but that is part of the fun.
It can be quite crowded and they don't take reservations, so get there early.
I got burned on my credit card – These guys charge you 20% extra on your credit card without any authorization. What a bunch of snakes. Crumby food, terrible service, over priced and they are trying to cheat people. Thieves.
Check you credit card bill – I just left the Chicago Ed Debevics... which was a bad experience. When I got home I was looking through my online credit card statement. I noticed that the bill was higher than I had authorized. I didn't leave a tip because you should only leave tips for good service and good food.
The credit card bill was for higher than my charge so I called the restaurant and they told me "the credit card company automatically adds 20% to the bills but that they would correct it".
What a bunch of B.S. Imagine all the people that don't check their credit cards $$$$$ 20% on each credit card transaction.
Ed Debevics doesn't only give you poor service, lousy food, expensive prices... they are also robbing you.
Rude service. Bad food. Over priced. Dirty conditions. Why are people still going? – It's ? that keeps people coming. I gotta think that the one time people eat here, they would rather go someplace else. It hurts to spend money like this.
There's more grease in the employees hair than in the fryer. About the employees: Odd and petty nasty in a ha ha I finally can be mean way. Doesn't look like any of them take showers before coming to work. I gotta believe they don't wash their hands because the bathrooms didn't have paper towels.
It's a pretty scummy operation.
Don't Go. Expensive, poor poor quality and horrible service. The theme is dead! – Expensive and poooooor quality. It's not mocking fun anymore, its just rude and dirty. The bathrooms were filthy and the staff were out of control. Neve again. You've been warned.
Each time the waiter came to our table we prayed he wouldn't talk too much and leave quickly.
Horrible everything. You have to have a low self-esteem to like it. – Ed Debevics was the worst experience I've ever had at a restaurant. The food was terrible and the service was worse. The old mock hurry up and eat thing has degenerated into dirty and rude. The employees are trying to run it into the ground under the whole "rude" concept.
3 adults and a child was $48. Expensive and terrible food. Don't tip, don't go and don't be sad if you have a bad experience. You were warned.
Ed Debevics is riding on their name momentum but its pretty much done. Chicago has great restaurants... Ed Debevics is no longer one of them.
