Re: “The Peanut

By far our worst Kansas City restaurant experience. Period. I ordered the Tuna salad sandwich on "toasted wheat." Simply put, the sandwich was soggy when it arrived, and they just slapped on cold shredded cheese. I would have been fine to just say "I didn't care for their version of the tuna salad," until the waitress first took offense that I said I didn't care for it. Then she brought the check, and demanded that I still pay for the sandwich, which I did not eat. I was dumbfounded, as this was the first restaurant EVER that I've been too that was requiring me to pay for an item we neither enjoyed nor ate. I would have ordered something in place, but was not given a chance. Unfortunately, this was a terribly bad experience for my wife and I to have on her lunch break.

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: “Baja 600 - CLOSED

I gave Baja a 3 because it wasn't bad, but it wasn't memorable. I expect a corporate feel when eating at restaurants on the Plaza, but it just didn't do much for me, like it almost needed more of a niche to make it interesting. The service was good. The food was alright, and the portions were large (the quesadilla appetizer was the largest I've ever seen), and the prices match the size. You'll leave full, but there won't be much to pull you back in again. As for vegetarians, those choices are pretty limited, mostly to the typical cheese enchilada type of items (and a few salads). You would be better at any of the places on the Boulevard, or go a bit further south to Jalapeno's or Casa Del Rey.

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: “Big T's Bar-B-Q

i started eating BIG T barbeque at the blue ridge blvd location and then they opened up another a bit closer to me and in the beginning, it was excellent, truly the best in town but my luck with the new place just isn't the same. the burnt ends are tough everytime i get them so i have stopped eating there. people are nice and maybe i will get to the other location to see if their quality is staying consistent. thought i had found my favorite bbq place but now i am not so sure.

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: “Shields Manor Bistro — CLOSED

My wife and I have visited Shield's Manor a half dozen times. This elegant, out of the way, bisto is great! The service is impeccable and the atmosphere is super. Food? Every meal we've had there is outstanding. With DeDe cooking and Max running the dining room, it is a great experience . . . and yes, you'll get to know them by their first names. I highly recommend it if you're looking for an elegant experience and great food!
