Re: “Hamburger Mary's

Request to all:

Please do not patronize Hamburger Mary's.

A few months back we were at a Hamburger Mary's BearBust having a great time. Normally we just pay in cash throughout the night, but since we hadn't gone to the ATM, the bartenders on the upper patio suggested we open a tab. We did. At the end of the evening, I asked the bartender what our tab was and he said it was $89. When checking our bank account, we noticed that our bill, which was $89 on the receipt I signed plus tip was showing on the account twice (one at $89 and the other at $99)

We waited a day or so to see if the second charge would be removed and it wasn't. We therefore disputed the charge with the bank. It was resolved with the smaller of the two charges being refunded to our account.

Today, we were at Hamburger Mary's. Had lunch and was enjoying beers and time with friends on the patio and were approached by the two bartenders from the upper patio who suggested we open a tab. We were told that we were no longer welcomed there due to a "conflict of interest". They said this was at the direction of the manager. After repeated requests, we were never able to talk to the manager directly. In fact, it was almost as if they were trying to avoid having to get the manager.

So, I would urge everyone to check your account statement when using your credit or ATM cards at Hamburger Mary's. Particularly upstairs. I originally just chalked this up to some sort of mistake. They happen. But after being approached and "tossed out" by the two bartenders who also were involved with the disputed charge, I fear there may be something more sinister happening. I hope I am wrong, but the situation is really odd to me.

I hope we all may find some other place to enjoy time with friends.

Thank you for your support.

Re: “Tower Tavern

I am writing this review based on a very recent experience at Tower Tavern. This review is relevant to how poorly the staff treats their customers especially when they are favoring bar patrons who are friends of the staff and owner. This establishment supports domestic violence. Especially, one of the owners who is a corrupt, chauvinistic drunk who will publicly humiliate you with unscrupulous lies in order to protect his drunken investments who regularly feeds his insatiable alcoholic cravings. He has no regard for human decency or women. The owner that I speak of is the geeky drunk with the glasses, Grant, that stands on the side of the bar getting loaded with other bar patrons. If you don't mind this type of behavior, then kudos to you. However, if you have any decency and respect for women, then I suggest that you stay out of this place. Domestic violence should not be tolerated. As a business, Tower Tavern should do what is best to make sure that people are not being abused by their partners. It is not acceptable to humiliate anyone any more than what their abuser has already done, even if you are friends of the abuser.

Re: “Madrigall

Please update this info. Madrigall is definitely not closed. This information is far out dated. Madrigall is a great place to go Salsa dancing on Saturday nights!

Re: “The Red Balloon

I give this bar a 5 star rating. I was in KC this past Saturday. My best friend and I went here on a whim. I had remembered the name form the Pitch website. I am glad we went. Granted it is a hole in the wall. But we had a blast!!! I was able to sing five times and I did not pay anything to sing. The DJ was excellent and very nice and courteous. The bartenders were great and fast. The crowd was a mixture of people. Old and young. We will definitely make the drive from Topeka and go again. People even gave me money for singing it bought me several drinks! Had a great time.

Re: “Coda

Recently stopped in with some friends and lets just say we will be back!
This place is great! Very fun and lively. Great place for an after work drink with co-workers. The ambiance is just what you need to unwind!

Re: “Benton's Steak & Chop House -- CLOSED

I went and had quite the opposite experience.
I give 5 out of 5 for all areas.

Expensive but worth it, the cooks here know what they are doing. Without a doubt.

Re: “Cafe Trio

I ordered the Prince Edward Island Mussels and a nice white wine. The mussels were simply outstanding. I recall only one seafood dish in over a decade that had an equal in the richness of flavor and that was overseas. My only suggestion is to those ordering. Make certain you order extra toast (not the dinner role but the toast that comes with the dish) and a spoon because at the bottom, heaven in the form of a white wine garlic sauce, pancetta bits, onions, and tomatoes awaits the taste buds.

To top it off were bartenders who made certain my appetizer and wine experience was good.

Re: “The Roxy

The sound system needs someone who really KNOWS how to use it. The guy also seemed to have band favorites. Dude, it's not about YOUR night experience it's about your listeners and customers. FAIL!

I found a table with some band mates, the waitresses totally ignored us, Several of us had to get our own drinks after a 45 minute wait! Then when she finally did show, I asked her for some food ideas and she said the kitchen was closed. After I had seen her serve food right up to the minute I asked. She served me a $2 coke, I gave her a five, she said she would try to work some 'magic' with the kitchen for me, I said good and you keep the $3 tip. Ignored for the next hour!! I flag her down, get another coke, this time NO tip! She left laughing, what a dombass! I and my friends are very big tippers for service. she failed everyone!

Obviously this place has management problems!
And what's the point in having two pool tables that look like gravel trucks roll on them?

Total FAILURE! Call Bar Makeover FAST!!

I will NOT be back unless I make money in this place. By The looks of things, there isn't any to be had.

PS, My guys would have beat that jealous bar bitches ass all the way out the door. And would have sent that waitresses dumb ass with him!

Re: “The Piano Room

For years now, this has been my favorite bar in Kansas City! We started going in... 2009 maybe? The bartenders are above & beyond fantastic; even on the busiest of weekend nights, those two will work a packed bar like a couple of champs. AND - One of them is the main vocalist. It's artwork in motion. Tasty drinks, a great pianist, and they even open up the mic up to willing contributors in the crowd! Weeknights, they've usually got something going on too - either trivia, or special musicians. Stop by and have a cocktail! (and don't buy a piano - spread the word that it's not a retail piano joint!!)
