This was the third and last stop on our adventure of trying to get lunch on a Saturday afternoon. I had been wanting to try this place out since it opened. Not very impressed at all. We walked in and didn't even see a single person for about 2-3 minutes. No one at the host station, no one behind the bar, and saw no servers helping tables. We were about to walk out and just go home at the point when finally someone came by with their hands full of dishes saying that someone would be with us shortly. Meanwhile, we looked at the menus posted on the front wall and had kinda figured out what we wanted to eat. Someone finally came and sat us and our server came and got our drink orders and apologized for the wait at the front. We looked at the menu and realized that it was not at all the same menu that we saw on the wall out front, and nothing that we had wanted was even on the menus we were given. We were looking at each other kind of in shock because of all the trouble we had already gone through just to get lunch.
We ordered the spinach queso dip for appetizer, and it was disgusting. Its like spicy Velveeta with whole spinach leaves thrown in and a big glop of sour cream spooned on top. It was thick and gross and the sour cream wouldn't even mix in with the rest of the dip. My husband loves a good queso dip, but was disgusted by this. We were about to tell our server to just cancel our lunch order and ask for our check, if this was any indication of how the food and service would be. We received our side salads and they were pretty sad too. The cucumbers on our salads were so old that they were dried up and shriveled. I love cucumbers and eat them often, and I could tell these were cut a long time ago. They were not even shiny at all. The salads themselves were so-so. Nothing special. Just a mix of cut-up lettuce, old cucumbers, and 2 little cherry tomatoes.
My husband had ordered a Blue Moon beer, which is served with orange slices. Well, the orange slices he got on his beers were also quite old and dried up. Our son usually like to eat the orange slices and we had to actually pull the fruit off the rind because the rind was so dried up and hard. My son ended up not eating the oranges because they were so dried and chewy, he just spit them out.
We ordered the tomato basil pizza that my husband and i were going to split. The pizza itself was alright. Nothing great. I love a good fresh pizza with pesto, fresh tomatoes, etc. This was nothing that great. My son ordered chicken fingers and fries ( we were going to get him a club sandwich, which was listed on the front menu, but not the actual menu). HIs food was nothing but a plate of drippy grease. His fries were like greasy carnival fries. They were so greasy they were almost clear and limp. His chicken tenders were quite greasy too. Like they fried it all up and forgot to drain it after cooking. It took him a bit of coaxing to finally get him to eat it.
While were eating, we were sitting kind of in a little corner table that was hidden in the back of an area. Everyone in our section had left and not one single person and come by to clean off any of the tables. There were about 5-6 tables around us and every one of them had every plate and glass left on them, not touched or moved. While we were eating, no one ever came and cleaned up our empty glasses/ plates from our appetizer or salads. So we were eating around other plates that were stacked up to make room for our lunch.
Our waiter was great though! He was very friendly, but you could tell he was tired. The whole time we were there we only noticed maybe 3 servers in the whole place. Our server would be over on the other end of the restaurant taking orders and serving food and back and forth to random places. It didn't seem like there was any structure into setting up sections for servers to focus on.
Over all, a pretty poor experience. This place looks so cute and promising on the outside, and the decor on the inside was cute too, but service and food is lacking BIG TIME. Sad to say, we will not be coming back.
