Re: “R.A. Long's Sawmill

This restaurant has a great atmosphere but the food and service leave much to be desired. I have eaten here twice with different levels of service ranging from good to horrible. The food has never been good. I have had to send my entree back both times I was there. The tuna was a horrible cut and was inedible. The KC strip was served rare instead of medium well and was very balnd as if there was no seasoning what-so-ever. We did not recieve our appetizer and other people at our table did not recieve their side dishes. The menu is limited and overpriced.

Re: “The Corner Café

Has gone down hill since that last time our family ate here. I have eaten here in the past for dinner which was perfectly acceptable. We (2 adults, 2 kids) tried breakfast today and I left knowing that I would most likely never come back. The restaurant was busy on Sunday for lunch and after having been in business for several years I would expect that they would be better prepared for a busy Sunday. After a short wait we were seated to our table. The first strike for me was that their famous biscuits in gravy are not available after 11:00 a.m. even though breakfast is advertised as being served all day. We placed our order after a few minutes. Over 40 minutes later we finally received our order. My order was half incorrect, one my son's order was half complete, and all of the food was between lukewarm to cool. After some reminders to the waitress she finally completed my son's order. Receiving the food almost cold and after taking such a long time is unacceptable to me as there are other restaurants for me to go to that perform better.

Re: “Chubby's on Broadway

It was exactly what I expected. Typical diner food. The service was great, especially since we went right when the restaurant was starting to pick up for the day but the food wasn't really any different than any other diner food I'd had and it's kind of out of the way for me.

Re: “Granny's Chicken Ranch

Outstanding Food & Atmosphere. The experienc was great, we saw a great show on the patio which is really the nicest outdoor dining we have seen in KC. My husband had the pot roast which was excellent, and I had the chicken fried chicken, it was great. The mashed potatoes are heavenly, as is the chicken gravy. The place is family run, and it shows. One of the owner's has a little girl that visits with the customers and is just darling. Thanks Charles for the great tip.

Re: “Granny's Chicken Ranch

We have been to this Restaurant 8 times now and have never had a bad experience. This is by far the best restaurant in the Legends. If Comfort food is what you crave, this restaurant has no equal. The Fried Chicken is the best we have eaten, the mashed potatoes and gravey are fresh and hot. The home made cinnamon rolls and biscuits are great. This is a must try for all you chicken fans, Strouds can't hold a candle to this place, and the atmosphere is unbelieveable.

Re: “Harry's Country Club

I arrived to celebrate the 30th birthday of one of my best friends last friday. After 3 years of marriage to a best friend of ours, he found Harry's Country Club to be a new and interesting venue to host the party for them and 34 close friends. Having planned this event with the bar owner, "Harry," over one month in advance, my friend Matt was surprised to find there was no area saved for the party, as they arrived at seven O'clock. After rounds of drinks were ordered, many of the group who wanted to walk into the bar's outside courtyard were told they needed to pay a $5.00 cover. Harry had promised not to charge any cover should Matt bring his party to his establishment. Although he initially told Matt his friends who smoke could go to the street, he eventually begrudingly allowed smokers who could not exit the bar with the $4 beer they had purchased to use the courtyard as long as they stood in a far back corner. His doorman made patronizing and belittling comments to those in the party who wanted to leave the stiflingly hot bar, as the air conditioner did not preform any function but to drip on the tables below. Our group finally left, 2 hours after arriving, when the bar owner, Harry, repeatedly sought out members of the party to threaten with removal if they had a problem with the service he was providing. Harry turned a woman's 30th birthday, with friends who traveled far to celebrate with her, into an argument with no winner. Not the angry bar-owner who lost a customer base. Not the wait staff, that lost further tips. Not the friends who gathered to celebrate. I would never again trust this bar with my good time and hope you will not either.

Re: “Granny's Chicken Ranch

I forgot to mention that there was a child who was apparently the hostess's daughter who was running around the entire restaurant with no shoes on, in and out of the kitchen, dining room, and other areas where customers were waiting.

Re: “Granny's Chicken Ranch

Granny's Chicken Ranch is the worst restaurant out at The Legends in Wyandotte County. Let me explain to you how our Mother's Day nightmare played out. My husband, daughter and I wanted to take my mother, and grandmother out to a nice chicken dinner after attending a very lovely and special church service Sunday morning. We arrived at the Granny's Chicken Ranch at 1215pm. The hostess informed us it would be 1 1/2 hour wait and we accepted because my Grandma loves chicken. Well we waited and waited to see at least 75 other people that came after us enter the restaurant and be seated. At this point we were told that there was a call in list. After waiting 1 1/2 hours we inquired as to when we would be seated and were told we were coming up soon. When we hit the 2 1/2 hour mark my husband again asked the hostess when we would be seated especially since we had our 84 year old Grandma waiting that long, she again said we would be seated after the next 4 groups. (SO WE WAITED) Finally at 345pm we were actually seated at a table. (3 1/2 hour wait) We ordered promptly and had a very sweet waitress. We ordered our 5 four piece chicken dinners at 350pm, and at 430 pm we were yet to have our chicken dinners. The waitress at one point told us that they had run out of chicken and had to go to the store to get more. We did have salad and biscuits, but still no food. Think about this we were there 4 hours and 15 minutes at this point. I was extremely embarrassed that we took our lovely mother and grandmother out to what was supposed to be a wonderful dinner. Finally at 445 pm (4 1/2 hours after we arrived) we finally got our food. This food was definitely not worth the almost FIVE HOUR wait for it. We then informed the manager at this point that we were upset at the wait, and service of the managers to not speak with us concerning this issue. They gave every excuse in the book trying to find excuses why their service was so poor. The hostess/manager stated to another manager that we refused to pay our bill and she called the police dept. I informed another "manager" that we did not want a free meal but would like a discount since we had been there half the day. They were not willing to give us a discount and the cops had already been called. My husband explained to the cops what had happened, and they stated we had to pay the bill (which we just wanted a discount , not a free meal). Anyways we ended up paying the whole meal ,(no discount) to keep from being arrested. This so called "family restaurant" was not willing to work with us, or even consider coming half way with us. I would not suggest this very poorly managed restaurant to anyone, let alone if you are planning to celebrate a special event. This group at Granny's (the many managers they have) were not willing to satisfy the customer. They were bringing in more and more customers who would sit there after us, knowing that they could not accommodate them for reason of seating or to the fact that they ran out of chicken. The owner never once offered to apologize, or even offer a discount after what our family experienced. My husband and I are making a point to all of our friends, coworkers, acquaintances, family, and anyone we meet to tell them to do not eat at this establishment.

Re: “Blanc Burgers & Bottles

As a burger connessieur I must say, "I have yet to consume a burger as good as the one I had at Blanc on Friday night. Believe me, I've had my share of Midwestern beef patties; I grew up in Nebraska where beef, without fail, was the center-star of every other meal eaten. Anyway, now that I've disclosed my beef eating history, let's get back to back to the juicy stuff. Blanc is a gourmet burger venue which serves up specialty burgers, fries, onion rings, and also offers a few salads for the calorie-conscious individuals. It has a long list of bottled beers, sodas, and an extensive selection of wines. I've been to Blanc twice now; the first trip I went with two others on a Sunday afternoon, we all ended up ordering a different lunch combo. I steered clear from red meat the first round, and opted for the lentil curry burger and sweet potato fries. Oh boy-- Boca Burgers could go bankrupt if this patty went to to the supermarket. The pattie was bursting with assorted veggies, lentils, and the perfect amount of curry flavor. It was served with some exotic toppings, which I don't recall, and then piled on a locally produced whole-grain bun. The sweet potato fries were thinly cut, super crispy, and were generously seasoned. For those who who like to dip, you're in luck, all patties and fries are served with homemade ketchup, creamy Dijon mustard, and a chipotle aioli. My second experience with Blanc was on a Friday night, our party of 8 thought chances were slim to none of snagging a table at 7pm. We were right, and ended up waiting until 8:30 before we were seated at our white set of tables and chairs, hence the name Blanc. Tonight I had my heart set on the Au Poivre burger; this consisted of a 1/2 pound peppercorn and salt crusted beef patty seared to a perfect medium, and then adorned with peppercorn sauce, watercress greens, grilled onions, and set on top a brioche bun. Another lovely selection, I must admit. Besides these items other picks from the menu include: The Inside-out-Burger(stuffed with blue cheese and bacon--which I anticipate trying next), The Classic, Turkey, Mahi-Mahi, Buffalo, and the lethal Kobe patty. I don't have enough time to describe the goodness of these burgers, so you'll have to see for yourself what goes into them. I assure you, you won't be disappointed.

Re: “Blanc Burgers & Bottles

I went there for lunch with a friend it was really good! I had the spicy lentil burger with the butter leaf salad (It was sooooo delicious, the flavor was soooooo great!) and my friend had the turkey burger with a milkshake, she loved hers too! The owner came by several times to chat with us. He was very very nice. Our server was nice but as attentive and I'm thinking it may have been because they were quite busy at the time. She snipped at me once when I asked for the check but again, I think it may have been because they were busy. I would love to go back again it was a good value for everything you get.

Loved the food, our server Mandy was great. Totally relaxed. The drink and food selections were fantastic! My husband's kobe beef burger was actually cooked to the perfect temperature, and I loved my lentil burger and sweet potato frieds. Nice job, "Drop" boys!

Re: “Harry's Country Club

Great service and drinks as always. Ordered our steaks medium and both were well done. They weren't burnt and were edible, but they sure were not medium. Not the slightest hint of pink in the middle. We sat at the bar and there was a lady smoking clove cigarettes. Of course this is out of the bar's control, but the lady chain smoked the whole way through our dinner. If you order the nicely (very affordable) priced KC Strip, have the server educate the cook on how you want your steak cooked. I know they aren't a steak house, but hey, it's KC, everyone should know how to grill a steak!

Re: “T.J.'s Café

I work in the Grandview area, and TJ's has become one of my favorite lunch spots. Breakfast and soup are two of my favorite foods, which just happens to be two things that TJ's specializes in. The thing I want to mention here is their soups. Plain and simple they have a soup artist working for them. Their soup ranges from vegatable beef, potatoe, beef barely and they are even better with a grill cheese on the side. But let me tell you folks, their soup is almost the best I've ever had. It's just the right consistency, with fresh ingredients, and seasoned just right. It is seriously delicious. But that's not all this place does good, they smoke briscuit, make a mean breakfast any time of day, and have an assortment of pies for dessert. Hands down my compliments to the chef, and the rest of the staff who care and so much and give such a wonderful gift of their talent to the world! Thanks, Scott Food/Soup Connoisseur
