Re: “Swagger Fine Spirits and Food

Instant/fountain tea and cheese SAUCE versus real cheese on their baked potato fries. Ruined what would have been a good meal (good burgers). Used to be better.

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: “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: “Mike Kelly's Westsider

Burnt fries, burnt bread, undercooked chicken ... the food that came out should never have left that kitchen!

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: “Buffalo Bob's Smokehouse

It's got a nice location, lots of food choices, it's noisy but basicly it is a very uninspiring BBQ restaurant. I've been here several times with friends over the years (mainly because they wanted to go here ). I have never really been impressed with this place at all. The burnt ends are far from being great, the onion rings or Ok, the BBq sauce tastes does not have any zing to it. Maybe a lot of people like thsi place but compared to other BBQ places and meals I have had in the Kansas City area, this BBQ place does not have my vote for either a good restaurant,a BBQ place to eat, a restaurant where I want to eat with someone or a group, or has something new or different, or is memorable meal. Service is fine but when you are waiting for food that is not great, what's the hurry? And did I say the atmosphere sucks too?
