I know this may come as a shock to the rest of the reviewers on The Mallet but we had an amazing experience. The Best Part was our WAITER. He was amazing, attentive, honest, helpful, patient and kind. The food was good, except two orders of kids wings that were not cooked all the way but I told our waiter and he quickly took them away and brought back a different choice for the kids. We have the worst luck with waiters and waitresses. We always get the one that has a bad attitude, could care less about us and is out back smoking and comes in with the delicious over powering smell of smoke. It was an enjoying experience with this gentleman. Unfortunately, I did not get his name but I do know that he is a teacher during the day. Which made him even more perfect because he was so sweet and patient with the kids. The only reason for the 4 stars is because of the undercooked wings. BUT he took care of them immediately. Will go back and keep our fingers crossed that he is there!!!!!!

Food is horrible and taste less also over priced. The bartenders are more concerned about making themselves drinks rather then attending to customers. Management is also a joke not sure how this place stays open

Food was excellent, but overpriced by far! Service was terrible, we sat outside, not the best tables for eating on. People were eating crabs and all you could hear was the aluminum tables being whacked! We sat down, the hostess said she only had 1 menu and had to run and get more. She pretty much forgot about us and when the Server came to take our orders,before she even brought us menus. Three of us, but we only got two packs of silverware, no extra napkins, no steak knife for the filet. Nobody came back to get us refills or to check-up on us. We had to flag different people down. The bartender kept going out on the parking lot to smoke and get on her cell phone, it was just not professional at all. The waitress was telling the hostess she was in the wrong location, and had to go inside, this was upsetting the hostess, and all of this could be overhead. We won't go back. (and I still tipped good)

Service is poor. We had tried the place once before, and it was fair. This time it was just plain poor. On a beautiful sunny, warm Sunday. You would think the place would be packed, it was empty. Now I know why. The waitress did not even want to walk outside to wait on us, she had us sit as close to the front door as possible, while our kids played at their cheap, pirate ship that was right next to the smoking area....NICE!

No music out on the deck, rather than walk o Erato us once our food came she yelled from the front entrance" how is everything? By the time we left our kids had splinters all over their hands. We will defiantly not return. If you take your little ones, be prepared to pull many splinters out of their little hands.

Don't waste your money here, there are way too any nice places to eat in town. Food was not anything great either!

Yay! Crabs! Excellent crabs! Got a dozen jumbos on Saturday and every single
One was perfectly amazing! Our server, Aaron, was great! A friend was raving about his crab eggroll things. I wasn't paying attention- I was too involved in the crabs! Can't wait to spend many summer nights here!
