We were in for dinner tonight, which we visit about once a month. I always order the King size Prime Rib. Tonight I have to tell you, I am not sure we will be back! I made the mistake of answering yes when the waitress ask if I cared to have it seered on the grill! The cook BUTTERFLIED MY 21.00 PIECE OF PRIME AND COOKED IT LIKE A STEAK! Why would someone EVER do that WITHOUT ASKING THE GUEST IF THAT'S OKAY! seriously, it took all the juice out of the meat, the bottom piece of butterfield meat was about an 1/8 of inch thick, and if I wanted a steak I would've ordered a t-bone! they were gracious enough to take the dinner off our bill, but it kinda ruined the dinner of which I have maybe one to two nights a month that I that I am not too busy to go out to eat! We use to visit the Outback on Ina, but it has seriously went down hill also! Not sure where we will go now? The poor server was shocked when I handed her the 20.00 tip, and said she could accept it, but I quickly told her it was NOT her fault, IT WAS THE COOK!
I rather enjoy the Hut usually. They got giant jenga, corn-hole and huge connect four, make it worth going just alone. Bar service is nice, but the way they conduct themselves when a problem arises is just embarrassing. We were there for about a hour a half playing jenga (Which is awesome because of how huge it is) celebrating a friends birthday, when some little blond girl started some ish with my friend and calling her out to fight outside. The bartender kicks all of us out, just for us being yelled at by this enraged, loud, tatooed blondie. I would understand if we boosted the fight but we sat there and separated ourselves, ended up getting kicked out for no reason and now have a negative experience for the first time there. stars are for the games and that alone.
The first pizza i consumed from this restaurant, was a regular flat pizza, and, it was quite tasty. i returned,and, ordered a pan pizza. It consisted of a pile of canned tomatoes on top of a bland tasting dough.
Mediocre at best. I've tried it several times over many years, never a good meal. Always expensive and lousy service.
Run of the mill food, overcrowded,barely fair to poor service, decent prices.
Its not thta Shell Shock is bad, they just have no soul. Very generic players. Good sound but you kinda get sick of them being in there every stinkin month. Bookin agent must be doing someone in the band...or all of em.
This is our second review - see 2011 review. Service continues to be a major issue at Opa. I asked twice for a drink refill. Put it this way. I ended up leaving my seat and walking over the beverage fountain to refill my glass myself. Awful! The free humus they give you remains very band too. But for five bucks the gyros during lunch are a deal. But don't add fries or a salad b/c you won't need all that extra food. Plus your five dollar meal will turn into an eight or nine dollar lunch.
I forgot to add a rating to my review a moment ago.
The first time I went was lunch on the patio it was awesome,2nd time took freinds for dinner on patio,we had horrible service and managment gave us a $20 gift cert.Tried it again because I have always loved Scordatos family,There seemed to be plenty of help but service was really bad and slow ost dishes didn't come with ingredients as explained on menu.There were at least 3 managers on the floor but not really doin their job.Sorry to say we were so disappointed we won't be goin back.Manager should read his reveiws.I would rather have my dinner alittle late instead of cooks just throwing things together to get it out.Surprising and sad for Scordato's reputation.Bummed out!
I've been here twice and I wasn't impressed either time. It seems like a horrible value. I ended up paying $17 (tip and tax included) for some grilled veggies, lettuce, pita bread, and hummus. The water tastes really funky. Their sign says vegetarian paradise, but I didn't find that many vegetarian items on the menu. I'm not going back.
At best 2 stars. Have had their biryani, that was ok, and a chicken dish that was inedible. No thanks.
I just do not get this places' popularity. THe owner has an attitude having taken over from his parents, the service is only fair and the portions very small. Its only because of the fact that there are so few restaurants on this end of town that this place stays busy.
Second time I have tried Panda Buffet and second time disappointed. Most dishes were barely warm, the chicken dishes were certainly not tender. The Mee noodles were tasty but not too warm. both shrimp dishes I tried, honey shrimp and another were badly prepared and almost powdery in texture. The Hot and sour soup was hot in temperature and spicy enough but lacked much in the way of tofu and vegetables. Service was good and friendly without being intrusive. The first time I went there I had a similar experience and thought it must have been an off day but now after going there for another time has proven to be the norm rather than the exception.
My wife and I are from NJ and couldn't wait to try the Italian subs for dinner one night a few weeks ago. It was a big dissapointment. The rolls tasted like they were at least a day old. The cold cuts/provolone are not the best quality and sliced way too thick. The chopped, not sliced cherry peppers are soaked in way too much vinegar, to the point of drowning out the other flavors. There were no seasonings, like a dusting of oregano, and the oil seemed to be a cheap vegtable oil, not a decent olive oil. So...fuggetaboutit. Wouldn't make it in Jersey.
I wish the best for this restaurant but overall, I was disappointed with the pizza. It was very creasy and the toppings spilled all over the place. Its not like the New York pizza I grew up with.
Oh.. and was not impressed with the names of many of the items in a vegetarian restaurant being called after meat dishes.
The sushi here is good, BUT the past three times I have gone (over the course of 1+ year), has been the worst I've experienced.
My husband I visited J Marinara's for lunch...it was so-so...definitely not worth the cost of their lunch menu. Improvement is needed or it will NOT survive...it's a tough strip center being that there is nothing to draw folks in - other than the car wash!
Had Breakfast at their Speedway/Kolb location, Nice clean and new place with great staff but High prices coupled with just OK bland food. The place has not changed since my last visit about 3 years ago. Won't be going back for awhile.
