Re: “Coach's Bar and Grill

It doesn't seem that anyone who cares, looks athe the food before it's served to the customers. Mistakes on every plate that was served. The list is too long to list all. They make their own potato chips, they were served un-seasoned and either over cooked or almost raw. Garlic toast served with ceasar salad, room temp, untoasted, bread w/ garlic butter on it. I could go on. I wouldn't go again there for food. Everyone sitting at the bar seemed to be having a good time.

Re: “Jaywalkers Sports Bar and Grill -- CLOSED

Food is good but not worth enduring the terible service. Went there for lunch on a Friday-it took 1 hour and 45 minutes to get out of there. The waitress never brought us utencils-good thing we ordered sandwiches and fries. I got up and got us napkins for my goup myself. The waitress kept having customers ask her to take their order (probably becasue she takes forever to come back) so she took them out of turn which then meant we did not even get our order taken until we had sat there 25 minutes. Don't ever say you need a minute-the waitress won't be back for a long while-she will likely be hanging up at the bar talking to her friends. Finally, a firend onf mine waived down the only other waitress who took our order. The cook delivered our food finally. One of my firends had a question on her bill (which was not correct) and the waitress seemed put out and stated to our group "I know what I am doing". She left and went to the back of the retaurant and started throwing things. I tried to catch her because I wanted to get the managers name and number. Got it from the other waitress. Turns out the number is just the main number to the restaurant and I have left the manager 2 messages with no return call and I have gone to their website and asked for the manager or owner to call me back. Two weeks later nothing. This was not the first time like this either. My group likes the food but why go to Jaywalkers becasue the service will make you mad and it is not worth the bother. Go the other direction to the Bell Street restaurants.

Re: “The Cashew

***WARNING!!!! ***TAKE YOUR PRIVATE PARTIES ELSEWHERE! PATHETIC VENUE! Perhaps if you're simply drunk & have never partied in better than a barn you might love this hole. WHEN IN REALITY... There is NO Airconditioning in the upper floor ballrooms. They say & sell that there is, but it does not function, NEVER HAS! It was 98 degrees on June 27th when they screwed hundreds of clients over with the lies & BS! There was a crew of HVAC techs kicked out about 2 hours before guests arrived so they were not caught afro-engineering some laughing stock of a AC system that very afternoon. THIS VENUE HAS BEEN OPEN FOR MONTHS IF NOT YEARS DOING THIS TO EVENT AFTER EVENT OVER & OVER!!!! THE LIES MUST STOP!!!! The Video system FAILED when the clients group was to present a crucial heartfelt video & the venue had nothing but more pathetic excuses. They blew all their money on Garage doors instead! lol The management staff is very very rude, over worked, understaffed, incompetent and just plain pathetic. I wouldn't vomit on their sidewalk the next time I drove by drunk in a cab even if I was a loyal jayhawk fan! ***WARNING!!!! ***TAKE YOUR PRIVATE PARTIES ELSEWHERE! OBVIOUSLY THIS VENUE CANNOT SUPPORT PRIVATE EVENTS! SHOULD YOU TAKE THE CHANCE????????? Furthermore, this venue is NOT handicapped accessable. If I was in a wheelchair I would NOT go upstairs EVER under any circumstances, you'll just get trapped in the building owners private garage & burn up with his mercedes collectables. It's like Fort Knox getting in & out of that hole. NOT VENDOR FRIENDLY BY ANY STRETCH of the imagination! GOOD LUCK if you take the risk!

Re: “Dos de Oros

Great Mexican food and very reasonable prices. We eat there almost every Friday evening and never tire of the food. Quacamole is excellent. I love the spinach enchiladas and we've never been disappointed with the shrimp specials. The employees are very welcoming and attentive. Food choices are excellent. I even order their tamales and whole beans when I'm having a dinner party (I do make my own tacos and quacamole even though I am not Mexican.) Highly recommend!

Re: “Harry's Country Club

I visited your establishment for the first time today for lunch with my daughter, friends and granddaughters. It was one of the worst experiences I’ve had in a restaurant. To begin with, our server took our drink orders and returned about 10 minutes later with them, but she forgot one. She told us she would be right back with it, but never returned with it. About 10 or so minutes later she came back to get our order. I understand that it was busy, but when we sat down only a handful of tables were seated. After our server took our food order, she proceeded to take orders at 4 other tables, which having run a restaurant before, I understood. That way there was one trip to the kitchen to deliver the orders. But, all 4 tables received their food long before we did. One table had even left by the time we received our food. About 20 minutes after she took our order she stopped by to make sure that I had ordered a sandwich instead of a wrap. It is my belief that she did not give our order to the kitchen until after that. That is the only explanation I can come up with for the huge delay. When asked how much longer it would be, we were told it would be right out. The 7 orders dribbled out one or two at a time. My 6 year old granddaughter was the last to get hers, about 10 minutes after everyone else. It was a grilled cheese sandwich and fries. How long does it take to make that?? When the manager (I am assuming, she never identified herself as that), came over to see how everything was we told her that the food was fine, but the delay was unacceptable (or words to that effect). She explained that the kitchen was backed up because they were busy and said “look at all these people.” When we all tried to explain that we had been there since 11:35 and it was now 12:30, she said well, when some people order things that take a long time it takes a long time to get your food. How long does it take to make grilled cheese, fries, a wrap, a sandwich, the brown thing, macaroni and cheese and a hamburger???? I was so taken aback by being told to go run the kitchen, I couldn’t respond. This manager is the rudest thing I have ever run into in the service industry. I didn’t expect a free meal, but I would have certainly appreciated a little sympathy and possibly free drinks for the extremely long wait. Instead, I was rudely told to go run the kitchen and that she had apologized and didn’t know what else we expected from her. Two of us had to get back to work. We both work downtown. I had left my office at 11:25 and did not get back to that office until after 1:00. I have an hour for lunch, which is usually more than enough time to go to a restaurant, eat and still have time to get back by the time the hour is up. None of us will ever be back. I will spread the word about how rude the management is there and how slow the service and cooks seem to be. Also, if you choose to eat there, don’t you dare complain about anything…they tell you to go run the kitchen. Sue Gates

Re: “Llywelyn's Pub

We ordered couple pitchers of beer, and were billed $30, put $40 in cash in the folder, got change back and than in 3 minutes a girl from behind the bar jumps out and grabs the change (~$10 or over 30% which we did not intend to leave - too much of a tip) and mumbling something about them needing the little folders for checks runs away with the $10. While not much of a loss - the impression it left on us was such that we never visit this pub again. It stinks. Otherwise - a regular cheap pub.

Re: “Elephant Bar

Shame on me for trying this place twice, the first time my food was overly salty and not cook properly, second time food still wasn't great and the expensive drink i ordered was not drinkable, I will never go here again, all hype, not what it's cracked up to be.

Re: “Jardine's

I went to Jardine's For my 18th birthday party with a group of 10.The food was pricey but well made and music was great. The server was very kind and on point. Everything went well until we were leaving, most of our party reached the car with an exception of two. Several minutes later they arrived at the car, informing us the bartender, not even our server followed them out of the restaurant complaing about the $10 tip we left. She said a 10 dollar tip is what you leave a waiter who didn't do well, when really thats all we could afford to give after spending $160. She kept on, asking if anybody in the party could give more... She ruined any chances of anybody in our party ever returning there, even though the music was beautifully done.

Re: “Sharks

I have been several times but usually order the same thing. I like the loaded mushrooms, southwest eggrolls, and the smokehouse chicken sandwich I've had...but I love the potroast sliders. I was skeptical at first but was told they were really good so I tried them. They have mashed potatoes, pot roast and brown gravy on them and it's hard for me to order anything else because they are so tasty. They have a bunch of pool tables, and dart boards...a couple foosball tables, shuffle board, and a ping pong table which I thought was pretty cool. Service is about average...i've had awesome service sometimes and other times sub par which is about the same thing I get everywhere else I go. It's also very big...we were able to get my girlfriends birthday party reservation of 30 on fairly short notice.

Re: “Austin's Bar and Grill

Austin's is our standard destination on weekdays when no-one feels like cooking. The menu offers a nice selection of sandwiches and diner plates. The real value is in the daily specials ranging from all you can eat shrimp to steak and ribs. There's sports television from every vantage point, but the noise isn't too overbearing and you can have a conversation without shouting. The staff is top notch. Kid friendly.

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: “China Star

I have gone to this restaurant since it opened. I had a somewhat identical experience as the 1st review. The food used to always be fresh and plentiful. The time before last, they were low on a lot of stuff, when I asked if more was coming out, they brought more food out in a timely manner. When I went last night at 8:15, they close at 9:30, everything on the entree side of the buffet was old, crusty and half empty with no meat, just veggies that were wilted and disgusting looking. When I asked if more stuff was coming out the server told me that it was too close to closing time and that they might be out of shrimp but she would check and see if they would make more. I sat and waited for about 20 minutes, snacking on appetizers (since that was the only thing on the buffet that looked edible) for the server to let me know if more food was coming out. She came back and told me that when she asked, they just said "ok" and she did not know if they were making more or not so I waited about another 10 minutes and when no food came out I went to talk to the person I was told was manager. When I spoke with him at not even 9PM he told me it was too close to closing time to make any more food. When I told him we arrived an hour and a half before they closed and asked for food refills he just started talking to the server in chinese and she told me that they would not charge me. That did not solve the probem. They still charged my mother and my friend $10 a piece for crusty, dried up, old, nasty food that was not worth 50 cents. They probably had a major case of the mud butts from eating it anyway after sitting under food lamps for so long. I will never eat at this place again even though it used to be my favorite chinese restaurant in town, my business is now going to Dragon Inn in Corinth Square which actually has excellent food. I don't know if they are under new ownership/management, but this place really stinks now. DONT GO TO THIS PLACE UNLESS YOU HAVE NO TASTEBUDS AND WANT DIAREAHA AND STOMACH PAINS!!

Re: “Cafe Al Dente

Cafe al Dente has called the River Market "home" since 2000, and I've been a customer since 2001. The food is always exceptional, from their homemade lasagna to pizza's to the special's on Friday and Saturday nights leaving you thinking you just left a 5 star restaurant. Prices are great and you are always greeted with a smile and treated like family. New restaurants have emerged in the River Market, but this one is here to stay! Happy Hour is one of the best; domestic draws $1.60, beer bottles $2.50 and a dozen martinis to choose from at $6!
