“late-night suprise on the Plaza”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

We were recently looking for a full-service restaurant after an evening concert. We had heard good things about this pub and decided to try it out. We were pleasantly surprised at the high-quality food they served. There was a high-profile sporting event which was being telecast throughout the pub, but it didn't overwhelm our eating experience. They did unique takes on traditional bar food, all special and tasty. Of course, they had a full-service bar. We were excited to find such good food, especially late at night. We will definitely be back!

“quick, tasty, and reasonably priced”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Had to get a quick bite before a show and other plaza restaurants had ridiculous wait times. Made it in and out in about 30 mins. I had their Diablo Shrimp pasta (pretty good). Others had Lobster Max and Cheese (good), veggie burger (not so good) and bacon burger with Nutella (damn good!). Spent around fifty bucks for it all, which I thought was not too shabby.

“Excellent service!”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

We had a large party on a Friday night in late December and I was able to make reservations that they don't normally take and the service was amazing! For the money, the food is awesome! No complaints from a party of 16!

“You won't get fooled at Tomfooleries”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

Went to Kansas City, MO for the Plaza lights and shopping and drinking. We went here for beers and appetizer's. The place when we walked in had a weird not so good smell. Wasn't sure I would get use to it, but the waitress seated us upstairs and there was no smell and when we left I didn't smell it. So maybe it was a temp thing. Nice atmosphere for a sports bar. Beers were very cold, the appetizer's, deep fried pickles, and hamburger /fries were good. Would visit again if in town.

“An Experience !!!”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

A Fun Place to dine with great food !!!! A Kansas Strip Steak Special on a Thursday night was tops... Their menu is varied offering Salmon, Chicken Caesar Salads, Burgers etc...... On Sunday's they offer a Bloody Mary buffet that is unreal... They supply a wide range of ingredients and you create your own Bloody Mary !!! Staff and service was excellent... Just another of many interesting and varied food experiences to be had on the Country Club Plaza if you are a family or single...!
