Reviewed 28 March 2014

The renovated North Dallas Bar and Grill is beautiful, seriously cleaned up and very, very nice.

We went for breakfast today and I was so disappointed. The new management no longer uses half/half for the coffee but nondairy creamer that does NOTHING to enhance their coffee.

I order a short stack and the cakes were so thick they were not good. They have a very cake like consistency and were about 1/2 inch thick. Not good. The syrup comes cold...FOLKS, warm up your syrup and make your cakes not so thick and make them take like pancakes!!

I also order the smoked double sausage link. Seriously tasted like bar sausages that comes in the pickled juice, just sliced open and fried. The overwhelming taste of vinegar was not good. Buy a good sausage!

Hubby had hash browns and eggs over easy and said they were fine.

This place could be awesome with some extra tweaking. Listen to your reviews, we want restaurants to be successful in little ole' Dallas!!

PS. We were sort of weirded out when our waitress was eating from her Tupperware dish and then spit something into her hand, walked over to throw it away and then picked up our dishes of food to bring to us. Hygiene folks!!

Also the service needs some attention. No one came back to say did we need anything (would have liked more water, but not a biggie). And we sat for longer than usual before we were acknowledged and given menus.

We have been going to North Dallas for many years. The use to have the BEST cheeseburgers; better than Red Robin, until they switched hamburger buns and went to the fresh thick patty.

New owners took over in January 2014, the guest service went downhill. Although I must say the remodeling is beautiful. This restaurant can be extremely successful with the right menu/cooks/waitress/prices.

Our waitress didn't ever return to our table, it took forever to get our food and we had to ask another waitress for our bill.

New owners that have put a lot of money and work into perking up this restaurant/bar/grill
Menu has changed some and a little more spendy than before. Good coffee and drinks. Open for breakfast, lunch or dinner. In the far back is a pool table and behind a partition some gaming machines.
Food is pretty good. Portions are also good/food hot if it is supposed to be. Our favorite waitress, Mindy is not there any longer :-(. We miss her/ she was so good

We have been going to North Dallas Bar & Grill 3 or 4 times a year (40+ mile drive) and have always raved about the food and atmosphere, we had never had a bad thing to say.
I have to hope the other night was just a bad night for them! Our waitress seemed to be completely lost, we placed our order and she delivered our main dish forgetting to bring the salads (showed up a few minutes later). Forgot to bring the incredible bread and honey butter (maybe better off for the waist line) and when asked about it her response was "oops never got around to it".
Our prime rib was over cooked (6:00pm so I would expect that they should still have some Medium Rare left). Had to ask twice for another round of drinks....so unusual!
We took some friends with us and we were slightly embarrased about the service since we had raved about North Dallas.
When dinner was done our poor waitress delivered the check and did not even offer a after dinner drink or desert. When I asked for directions to the nearest Dairy Queen so we might get some desert she did not even take the hint and gave me directions.
Don't get me wrong we WILL be going back because I have to believe that it was just a bad night and everything will be back as before!
