RZ's opened a few short months ago. I was excited to see a local sports bar/restaurant opening in the neighborhood. The previous attempt of a business at this location was a Cigar Bar that failed miserably (thankfully). It closed down no sooner than it opened. RZ's has a friendly atmosphere provided by the cozy decor, great waitstaff and a very friendly owner. Unlike some sports bars that bombard you with big screens RZ's has just enough sensibly sized flat screens scattered throughout. The drinks are reasonably priced as is the food. The food quality is good to excellent and is focused primarily on Greek dishes. The music is normally played at at a level that allows for enjoyment while engaging in good conversation. they have a pool table, karaoke and live music on the weekends. They have food/drink specials throughout the week. They have a fantastic patio area which also has a tv that is perfect for smokers.The only reason I am a little disappointed is due to the smoking policy. RZ's claims to be a "private club" in order to enable smoking inside its facility. This is an outrage as it is clearly an openly public establishment. They record your drivers license in the system and "Bingo" you are member. This is a blatant misrepresentation. Most of the heavy smoking takes place at the bar which is in the very center of the facility. This includes regular bar dwellers that sit and puff on massive disgusting cigars. The owner has attempted to negate the effects by installing some special smoke filters. I very much appreciate the efforts and extra expense but just do yourself, your employees, and your customers a favor and just follow the law. Stop pretending you are a private club because you are not. It is proven that In places that have banned smoking business has risen with statistical significance. While you may be afraid that you would lose customers by banning smoking you are actually keeping most of your customer base away by not doing so. I challenge you to make this change and with the right marketing watch your business increase. All in all a very nice place to relax with friends and family. Just get rid of the smoke please.
I actually have never written an online comment about any place, subject or thing, but felt that I had to after reading some of the previous comments. Please ignore all the rash opinions. My husband and I too thought the previous attempts at a fun local bar failed miserably, but this place is SUPERB! It really is a "Cheers" kind of a place and great for playing pool, karaoke, dancing, talking and eating great food (all the things we go to bars for). The waitstaff is incredible - no matter who we get that night, and the manager is such a joy. She DOES remember you and makes it a point to greet you personally and introduce herself to new guests. It is SO nice to come in to your local pub and get the reception that my husband and I get. Granted - we do not go out too much, but when we do we ALWAYS choose our "local hangout". We have brought several friends and they are also excited about the new RZ. We will see you New Year's night guys! Great job and THANKS for all that you do!
obviously it sounds like someone isnt happy that they arent working at this establishment. the negative comments that have been said about rz's couldnt be more obsured. the staff at this local bar and grill are awesome. starting with management! they remember my face after only two visits, and even went out of their way to have what i drink on hand! that says alot and they definately take care of their customers. food is much better than expected! this is my new local hangout and will continue to bring friends and family. dont take what these "haters" are writing, clearly they are holding grudges that shoudnt be held in the first place! keep up the awesome work!
