pricey and they run out of beers a lot. its not locally owned, you can check with the arizona corp comm. regardless, i went a couple times and its nothing special.
I bought the same beer and pretzel for $20. The steep price matches the decor — a sports bar in the Dallas airport.
I've been to WOB a few times, but not for the beer. Friends of mine were supplying "live" music. Beer and food were incidental. Servi
ce on all occasions was okay. Bar seating is best.
WOB is Wings Over Broadway. And it is excellent.
I agree that my only experience there was bad enough that I will not ever be back. Why go and drink overpriced beer in a horrible environment when there are so many better options in the downtown area.
WOB is soon to be old news and defunct.
Well, I suppose that's one way to look at it. I have to agree with most of your content, though. Water is a fantastically underrated substance. People don't need milk, juice or soda. There's water. Thiago | http://www.aquaexperts.com/technology.html
I give every place two chances. Anyone can have a bad day. But won't be back to WOB. One beer I tried was flat. The food I tried was overpriced for what it was and the staff was not attentive at all. Which is odd for a place that needs people to try new stuff. The staff should be talking to the customers. And I sold better pretzels from a cart at Toros games long ago. They were $1.50, German style, with a swatch of mustard.
One and done for us. Apart from the service, beware the surprise snifter, i.e. WOB doesn't like to confide beforehand just how much beer you'll actually get for your $7. There are just too many better options nearby, though perhaps none as glitzy.
I had a similar experience. Great beer, so-so food & lousy service.
WOB is a rip-off. They sell a 22 oz. Lagunitas Hop Stupid for over $11. Plaza Liquors sells it for less than $5.
I was unimpressed the one time I went there. I've had better times waiting at the old bus station than I did at WOB.
We had the same experience sitting at the bar. The beer was great, when we could get a refill. The bartenders were more interested in chatting with each other than making eye contact with their patrons.
We are going back to the Shanty.
Why bother with this place when you have the Shanty? (from a Phoenician).
This place will be gone soon...like Toby Keith at Tucson Mall.
Overpriced, terrible service. Fire the GM.
Poor service? It's like you've never even been to France!
Ghini's is a gem! As with any restaurant with amazing food: patience is key, and it's worth the wait. If you want faster food, go to the Wendy's across the lot. I've never had issues with service. We do expect the food to take a while, but my dining companions and I are okay with that...that's what the wine is for :)
Well, with uninspired bread and crap service, it's a wonder anybody eats there at all (or that they had to expand to keep up with demand).
I agree with this reviewers comments about the poor service at Ghini's and also the long waits, particularly on the weekends to get seated. This is especially aggravating when the person responsible for seating seems to take unusually long to seat waiting customers at tables that stand unoccupied for long minutes. They simply need to do a better job at customer service.
Where is thunder canyon in the conversation?
