Re: “McCormick & Schmick's

Our family had dinner in McCormick & Schmick (Kansas City) and did not have a good time. Besides being placed at the wrong table (we reserved a window table), our food order being short changed (we ordered a side of mashed potatoes and did not receive them) and our meal was cooked incorrectly (salmon was requested medium rare and came out medium well done), we received no bread (whereas the tables around us all received bread) and being billed for horderves that we did not order (the horderves that the table next to us ordered and ate).
The above dinner made us all sickly between 30 and 90 minutes after we left the restaurant. Emailing the restaurant the next day resulted in a no response. It was not until I contacted corporate that they called and apologized.
The bottom line is their food, service, and customer service is miserable. I will never step foot in another McCormick again.

Re: “Marisco's

This restaurant has been around since 2001 and is really hitting its stride. The owners, who also own the long running institution of Johnny's Tavern, took the reigns back from their partners in 2010. Don't let the name fool you. It opened as a Southwest seafood restaurant back in the day but now serves New American Comfort food. Their daily breakfast may be their best kept secret but be prepared to wait a on Saturday and Sunday. The lunch menu has creative sandwiches (The grilled veggie melt with sweet potato fries is my favorite.) and small portions of their entrees that will make you want to come back for the full dinner experience. They are known for melt in your mouth, aged steaks, grilled salmon, crab cakes, and lots of seafood dishes. Stop in for a classic cocktail and a small bar bite during happy hour. You will be glad you did.

Re: “McCormick & Schmick's

Below-Average, boring corporate food. Its servers act like they have memorized scripts, I overheard the manager talking about her fake boobs, and the bartender took almost ten minutes to get me a drink when nearly nobody else was there (she was talking to a waitress). Not coming back.

Re: “Jerry's Bait Shop -- CLOSED

Just a bar. We went there for something different but it was nothing special. Started out with soup and it was really good . The motel advertisment said voted #1 pizza in KC. So we ordered the all meat large. BIG MISTAKE! Wow we each couldn't even finish 1 piece. It came to the table smelling like garlic. Which can be ok but after taking a bite the taste had way to much pepper and it also was only half cooked. We paid the bill but shouldnt have and left. Went to steak and shake instead. Wasted evening.

Re: “54th Street Grill and Bar

When they first opened this 54th ST. location on NE Barry Rd. near Liberty, it was one of only a few restaurants in that area. Now it's very built up with many choices. Many have come and several have gone in the past 10 years. The 54th St. seems to attract the shoppers from the near by strip malls and Wal-Mart. In the early years, this 54th ST. was at least OK, nothing special, but decent enough and closer to Kearney where we live than most other restaurants. But we stopped going there after a waiter, botched our large group order. Example: "Oh you wanted the salad before your meal?" Complaining only got us a gift certificate for $10. off the next visit. No thanks. On an earlier trip, our waiter asked us to give him his tip before we were done, because he was ending his shift. Amazing! To be fair, the Liberty area is service worker challenged. and good help is hard to find and harder to keep given the low wages and poor management in many of these corporate chain boxes. The food at 54th St. is similar to other family American fare style boxes like Appplebee's, etc. We usually opt for The Corner Cafe which is a few feet away from the 54th St. location.

Re: “54th Street Grill and Bar

This place by far is the worst i've been too in years. My steak was nuked, i asked for medium and i got a well done hockey puck, my bbq chicken breast was a flimsy little piece of flash frozen chicken like the tenderbird brand with cheap ole kraft bbq sauce on it, and the worst part it was cold when i finally got my order. The ranch dressing for salads is awful as well. The servers sound like they are reading from a card and always ask if you want dessert every time they come to the table in hopes they can sell you something else. The place is over priced for the amounts you get also. I'll never go back.

It's a wonderful, authentic Irish pub close to KC. Great atmosphere, music and beer. I visit every time I'm back in KC.

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: “Dos Reales

I stumbled across this place one Thursday and wandered in. They had a green chile burrito as the special. It wasn't the same kind of green chile I was used to (having grown up in New Mexico), but it was green and had some zing, and big chunks of tasty, succulent pork. Very tasty. The lunch size fajitas are wonderful too. No matter what you order, they give you too much food. I didn't find it overly spicy, but I'm a chilehead and have more tolerance than most. They have both red and green El Yucateo on the tables if you need it spiced up more. The service has always been excellent, and the wait staff very attentive. I highly recommend this place.

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: “Joe's Crab Shack

We waited for an hour and half after being told 45 minutes. We spoke the Manger who never apologized, never visited the table, and couldn’t handle complaints. The staff of children running the restaurant mocked us since we had to see the manager to get a table. You pay 28 bucks for King Crab but you will notice you’re bucket is practically empty. We had company in from out of town and they used to go to Joe’s in Iowa and loved it. So we were excited to eat at Joe’s. We left the house as 5:45 got to the restaurant at 6:00 finally sat to eat at 7:45 got our drinks at 7:48 our appetizer was thrown down but some kid who im pretty sure was on drugs; at 8:10 (yeah it took a long time for them to make that appetizer apparently). Our food finally came about 8:30. Each plate by some other child in a uniform, not one utensil, not one. Our waitress never brought out the food so we had to find one of the kids dancing around the restaurant. I didn’t see any adults working here. I will spare you the rest but it was the worst experience I have ever had a restaurant. Avoid this restaurant like the plague. Our friends said they don’t remember it being like this and that the food has gone completely down hill. They said they must be trying to cheapen their expenses by cutting down on portions and quality. After having this experience more and more people I talk to say that this same thing. They all say the food proportions and quality has completely gone down hill. You wouldn’t walk into a dark alley full of menacing looking guys with guns, so don’t go into Joe’s Crab Shack either!!!

Re: “54th Street Grill and Bar

While this has all the decor of your standard TGI Friday's or Applebees establishments, the difference is the menu and staff. You will absolutely have no problem finding something you like and we've yet to have anything we didn't care for. Our favorites are the ribs, chicken fried stake, and anything with the jelapano bacon on top.
