Re: “The Roxy

I was there last Friday to see my friend's band play. We were all having a great time, until the waitresses boy friend came up to us and told us not to talk to her etc. etc. The mood of our whole group changes in a very negative way.

It's not a good practice what so ever to have your waitresses' boy friend's present at the bar. I will never go here again.

Re: “The Cashew

Owners are worthless pieces of shit who screw every employee that has ever worked there. Management also fucks every new girl that works there. Yes, every SINGLE manager. I hope some of your wives read this. The owner Shane is a raging tool who runs one of the shadiest bars ever. Hey, at least he gets laid regularly. Also, some girls claim that he has given them herpes. Think about working here ladies. Also, notice on craigslist that they are ALWAYS hiring. That should not be a good sign. Turnover is the sign that maybe it's not the employees ALL the time? It is the management to claim at this dump. Also, Shane's dad Mort is a total thief as well. Fuck you cashew.

Re: “Angels Rock Bar

It pretty much sucks at this bar. It's boring, same old - same old stuff. There are much better places in the KC area.

Re: “Speedway Bar & Grill

These people are crooks! I would STRONGLY suggest you pay cash anytime you go. DO NOT RUN A TAB - they will charge you for drinks you did not order. DO NOT RUN YOUR CREDIT OR DEBIT card, they will run it for more than what your bill was for. AND their mixed drinks are over priced.

Re: “The Cashew

Unfortuantly we has a similar experieince days before! To those interested in having an event or a wedding reception at 2000 Grand (The Cashew) please think twice! My Husband and I loved the Cashew. We loved the space, the view, the food was awesome, and they were flexible dealing with us all the way up to the wedding. It seemed to be the perfect spot to have an all inclusive downtown reception with an urban feel that had competing prices to other similar spaces. The problems we had occurred more after the wedding and with management. During the event it was HOT! They say the air conditioner was working which if this was true it was completely inadequate. With all the people in the space and all the windows it was burning up! All my guest on one side of the room were sweating and several of our older family members ended up having to leave early due to the heat. They did try to correct the situation by putting out large industrial fans that helped the heat but completely took away from the décor I had been working on for months prior. The second issue we dealt with was the freight elevator, which was the only access to the space except for three flights of stairs. At some point during the night the freight elevator broke which we were assured would work to help w people with disabilities which included my father, who paid for the event! Instead of trying to compensate for the elevator being broken they chose to ignore it and we were to figure out an exit strategy on our own. Not only were family members that needed assistance not able to leave the reception safely all the decorations we had brought for the reception also had to be carried down the stairs. They didn’t help with this until they were inconvenienced because people were going through the bar area with supplies. Management failed to provide alternative plans or help with either situation. These things could have been smoothed over easily because in the end we had a good time, but once mentioned to management a week after we were met with defense. The event coordinator was very apologetic and recognized the wrongs that occurred, but according to her, the owner and manager saw it very differently! Instead of offering some kind of concessions they put it all back on us and made some extreme and untrue accusations! This place is by no means cheap and we expected it to be perfect and when it wasn’t there was no real apology made. Only after meeting with them and much deliberation did they begrudgingly offer a gift card to the place. At this point it was too late; if they had offered this immediately we would have felt differently. The tactics they used to defend not offering any compensation were completely unprofessional and insulting. Please be aware of their poor customer service and lack of attention to customer satisfaction (more so with the owner and management) before booking this space!

Re: “Mac's Sports Pub

Don't go here! We are regulars who have gone here weekly for the past year. The day of my Bachelorette Party they canceled our reservation of the VIP room because they had double booked it. This, even after we had called twice to confirm our reservation and done so in person in the weeks prior to the event. We told everyone in my party that we had the VIP room and planned the evening around it. Though it is within walking distance from our homes and was our trusted neighborhood bar, we'll no longer be spending our money here or ending our weekend excursions at this bar.

Re: “Gusto Lounge - CLOSED

Wow! I'm shocked at this place. Doorman took my beer from my hand as he chanted "n--ger move on, n--ger move on". Absolutely despicable for 2010. I'm still shaking from the shock of hearing that (surreal to hear the n-word). Gusto doorman also called some other blacks "spics". I dont know what that means or what he was trying to get at... I'm still in awe...I'm sickened by this place. Please don't ever judge KC based on this ignorance and racism. disgusting. disgusting. disgusting.

Re: “Side Pockets

Sports Bar Redefined - If your definition of a Sports bar is a good looking wait staff, plenty of TVs, and cold beer then Side Pockets advertising is dead on accurate. Their wait staff is a bunch of rude, lazy, fat chicks that serve almost cold beer. The TVs are ancient too. I have a new slogan for them. Side Pockets – A Study in Bad Management.

Re: “Nara

My 2 sisters and I just went there for one of our birthdays. We did't have a reservation but there were many empty tables. The hostess asked us if we could be done in an hour or if we wanted to wait for a table. We said we would try to be done. The waiter was instructed to stay close by our table and make sure he took our order timely. after just 45 minutes, the waiter brought over the check and and the host came with him to tell us our time was up. We asked if we could be moved to one of the many empty tables. we were told they were all reserved. They were very rude and nasty and made sure to embarrass us and make us leave our table even though there were many empty tables when we left. The explanation was that they were all reserved. Until tonight that was one of my favorite places. I will never eat there again because of how badly we were treated. When we tried to complain to the girl at the register, she put her hand in our faces and said "good night ladies"..... I am very sad and disappointed.

Re: “Side Pockets

Side Pockets is a bar, grill, pool hall. The emphasis is on the bar-grill portion of the business. The tables are not well kept, and are badly in need of maintenance. If you are going somewhere to play pool this is one establishment to skip. The food is good for bar food, and they have a good selection. However, the service is terrible, and this is evident by the lack of lunch business. There are several leagues that play at Side Pockets, and this is what is keeping the business a float. On non-league nights Side Pockets is deserted. There are many more places in Kansas City with better food, better staff, and cheaper fun. Don't settle for Side Pockets in Lenexa. On a side note - the Side Pockets in Olathe, and Bonner Springs have already gone out of business, and I see this one going under soon also.

Re: “Twin City Tavern

I have never been treated so badly in my life from the staff at this place. The staff called us kids, decided it would be a good idea to shake a dirty salty and sandy rug all over us then decided it was ok to drink heavily on the job and yell at there customers.

Re: “Paddy O'Quigley's - CLOSED

The food is just OK but the service is the pits. 1st trip in, got billed for 15 extra drinks and it took 20 minutes to get my bill cleared up. 2nd time in, I gave a credit card to the waitress when I opened my tab and told her I would pay in cash. It took 40 minutes to get a very average hamburger. I paid in cash and found out 2 days later the waitress ran my card for $20 too. The Manager only gave me the run-a-round and refused to help. Had to get my money back through the credit card’s dispute process. MY ADVICE - STAY AWAY!

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: “Nara

I really don't understand what the big deal about this restaurant is. The food isn't great, and the prices are too much for the quality of the dining experience. Just because a restaurant is in a trendy area of town, people get all excited without realizing how much of a joke the restaurant is , really.

Re: “Cafe Trio

We were completely disappointed in the customer service. The new location and atmosphere are wonderful, yet the staff were rude when we approached them about the amount of time it took for our food to arrive. I would not recommend this restaurant for a group of people.

Re: “Raoul's Velvet Room - CLOSED

Several of you saw my "hat incident" postings on Twitter last night and have inquired about what happened at Fuel/Raoul's Velvet Room so I've decided to lay it out here in this blog. And yes, I'll admit it isn't the snazziest hat, but as you'll see, that's kind of beside the point. First of all, I want to be clear that the staff at Fuel/RVR were all reasonably professional except for the manager on duty who obviously didn't know the first thing about the hospitality industry, which is simply to be polite to your guests. I wasn't even given the obvious option of just taking off my hat; instead, I was flatly told that I had to leave immediately. Of course this was after my group and I had spent a C-note or more on cover charges and drinks during the three hours we had been there. I was utterly shocked at the manager's rudeness but decided it was time to leave anyway so I headed toward the restroom area as my ride had gone in there a few moments earlier. At that time I was approached again and told once more that I had to leave, this time by the same manager along with another employee who (guess what?) was wearing a hat conspicuously similar to mine. I explained to them that I was waiting for my ride to get out of the restroom and had no intentions of staying any longer as I was obviously not welcome there. Apparently I was not believed, and my audacity at pointing out to the manager that the other employee was wearing a hat didn't sit too well with him, as was evidenced by his continued rudeness. Once my ride emerged from the restroom she too was absolutely shocked at what was happening, so we left, along with the others in my group. What confounds me is why Fuel/RVR did not enforce their dress code at the door before taking people's money or at least explain to guests upon arrival that there are different dress codes even though the two bars had a common entry point and a single cover charge. And just why is it that the dress code doesn't seem to apply to their own employees? Fuel/RVR's management created an unnecessarily ugly situation that resulted in several extremely dissatisfied guests solely due to their own ineptness and unprofessionalism. Needless to say, we won't be back.

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: “Winslow's BBQ

Wish I could rate no stars. We went there a couple of sundays ago. I had a beef sandwich and my brother had a combo. The meat was sliced and then heated up in a microwave. It tasted like microwaved heated up leftovers. Just horrible. The fries were okay but couldn't make up for the sandwich. This place could ruin Kansas City's reputation for good barbeque..!
