Re: “Little Richard’s Family Restaurant

The atmosphere is definitely "hick" with deer heads all over the place, I eat there once a week with my widower grandfather. The people are nice, just not the type of people I usually associate with. But regardless the food is very good and I go to be with my grandfather to keep him going after losing his wife of 50+ years.

Re: “Bloomsbury Bistro

Great place to eat. The food is always amazing. I've ate there with my husband for a lunch date, with family for Mother's Day and with my two small children. The menu changes with the seasons, but a few regulars stay on the menu. It has a nice setting inside the mall. Simple decor and you can watch the cooks prepare your food.

Re: “The Westside Local

Excellent grilled cheese, fabulous fries, the burgers are quite tasty and they have deviled eggs, for gosh sakes.

Re: “B.B.'s Lawnside BBQ

Had no problem paying the low cover charge of $5.00 to eat dinner. I was told the money went to the band which was amazing! The BBQ was the best I have had in the city so far and the service was spot on, thank you Allie! I give this place 5 stars because there is no place like this in the city that you can eat great food & see live bands that really know how to put on show! Thanks BB'S!!

Re: “Rosedale Barbeque

One of my favorite BBQ joints. Their ribs are great but I usually settle on a beef brisket sandwich with their crispy fries and wonderful baked beans, finished off with an RC cola.

Re: “Arthur Bryant's Barbecue

A Kansas City institution... very good BBQ. Their sandwiches are enormous and the hot BBQ sauce is one of my favs. Yes, their place is greasy dive, but unlike other posters, I like this as this is how it has always been...

Re: “The Cashew

My Fiance and I were very excited to have our wedding reception here next March. Beautiful space, great view, excellent food and a 5-star wedding coordinator. We signed a contract with 2000 Grand on November 3, 2012, however the contract was signed not by our event coordinator, but by the owner. We knew nothing of this because we never saw the contract after the owner signed it...You could say we didn't mind because we were still in a pre-wedding bliss, full of fun planning for the best day of our lives. Needless to say, the bliss has worn off.

On November 12, 2012, we went in for a tasting to select the entree for the reception. Our great event coordinator, who we really liked and trusted, told us then and there that she was leaving and introduced us to her replacement. We were okay with it at the start, but after 5 days of no returned emails we knew this was a fail. We didn't trust the new coordinator to get the job done so we tried to pull out of the contract on November 21, 2012 by citing a clause that said something to the effect of "no changes are binding except in writing". But, to our dismay, the contract wasn't even signed by our coordinator, it was signed by the owner (someone the internet tells us is quite the bully). Remember the wedding bliss? Yeah we had no idea.

Another interesting point here is that, we asked them to take us off their calendar earlier this week so they can begin to re-lease the space, and sustain no damages by our situation. They refused and claimed they won't take us off until we pay our contract cancellation fee, which I will explain in the next paragraph. This is just silly business practice that can be simplified into plain-old bullying. They know that we are gone. They also know they won't make money if they don't re-lease the space. But they insist on hurting their own business to collect a measly $2,000 from a young engaged couple, us, who want out because they acted quite unprofessionally.

Long story short, lots of emails, a few interesting phone calls and some heartburn later, 2000 Grand delivered an ultimatum. Either we pay the 25% of the contract amount (which was a clause in the contract that we understand, but we claim the whole agreement is voided by their unprofessional actions) or they hand us over to the collection rats.

I would strongly advise any prospective event-hosting people out there that even though the space is good, the food is good and the folks seem nice, the current management here can be accurately described as crooks. I hope this post encourages you to make a wise decision of where you take your business.

Re: “Swagger Fine Spirits and Food

Went to Martin City location around 6 o'clock on Friday night. Drove awhile to get there. Saw the Diners, Drive-in's and Dives show. No soap or paper towels in men's restroom. Sat at bar and the bartenders seemed more interested in talking to the cute, young women at the end of the bar than serving us. The parking lot was empty, just a few people inside. Ordered a bourbon off their list and they didn't even seem to know they had it. Went to a back room to pour it. They could have poured any type of bourbon in there. Had the fries and they were fresh cut and good. But wow, work on customer service and pour the drinks in front of the customer. Might try the original location, not this one again.

Re: “Trouser Mouse

The bands are great but the bar is extremely smokey with poor ventilation. Make it non smoking and would go there often.

Re: “Skylight Restaurant and Sports Bar

Mike's COMEDY CLUB was a great idea. It's about time someone brought some "funny" to Blue Springs! The Skylight is really nice place to enjoy a meal and relax. And they don't charge anything for the comedy show. There are drink specials during the comedy. Last week I had a "Mike West" Lol

Enjoy a Comedy Club drink special and relax and get ready to LAUGH!

Re: “Torreon

Mixed reviews, just completed my first and maybe last visit to Torreon.
Nice ambiance, but a "booth" is really a table with half of its seats against the wall.
Server was very good. Chips were excellent and warm, the salsa was good.
I ordered a margarita, "Our fish bowl margarita (house blend) is good" Yuk! It tasted odd, if not weird. And, with an after burn on the tongue. I'll have a regular one, please.
A "fish bowl" of ice with a little liquid in it arrived. It tasted like a regular margarita. Ok.
I ordered the chicken fajita. My companion, two beef enchiladas, "no onions".
The enchiladas were described to me as "basic". When asked, "good, bad or indifferent"? She replied "indifferent".
The fajita tasted good, but was more or less, middle of the road as far as fajitas go. The chicken, although not completely "dry", was not moist either.
The big shock came when the check arrived. Food prices were reasonable, but they charged $18.00 for 2 margaritas! "You had top shelf". I never requested "top shelf", and there was absolutely nothing special about the two glasses loaded with ice and very little fluid, until some ice melted, that I received. They made no effort to reconsider.
So, as I told the hostess, food was ok, but I'll not be back for $9 margaritas.

Re: “Blue Grotto

Ate there last night (first time; Godfather table, with friends). I was not impressed with taste, esp. at the price.

Service was excellent except for server's representation of pizza size (she made it seem much smaller, and I didn't want all that food). I got the Four Seasons and found it to be soggy in the middle (outer crust was great) and bland. My friends liked their selections well enough.

My husband loved the asparagus appetizer.

He got the pork chop, and it was well plated and had nice apple puree/garlic garnish, but it was not uniformly tender (and also, alone, was bland).

My Caesar salad was o.k. I have had anchovies before, and the way they ended up tasting as part of Blue Grotto's vinegarette dressing was not tasty to me / tasted very differently.

Saw people I know, though, from around town, so it's a popular place. It was packed, and everyone else was happy. I have leftovers in the fridge, but I'm afraid of them : )

Went to Foo's for dessert (not me, them!), so can't comment on the sweets.

Re: “Nara

Worst restaurant I've ever eaten at!!! Service was terrible, sangria didn't have any alcohol, food was bland and over priced. To top it off the restaurant had my car towed from a reserved spot WHILE I WAS EATING INSIDE!!

Management was completely inept at resolving their mistake. I tried to contact owner Casey Adams who has been completely unresponsive. I'm going after them through the BBB (Better Biz Bureau).
