I have been going to Central Cafe since it opened. The food is, and always has been outstanding. The last three times I was there however I was extremely disappointed in the service. The wait staff is more concerned with socializing with each other and their phones than taking care of patrons. There was no checking back with us after we got our food, we had to go up to the counter to get something we requested and they did not bring, and they never refilled our drinks. Where is Donna (owner) when you need her?
First class American dine in fast food. Great people and good music. Food could be better, but that doesn't matter you can have a good time here.
Consistently visit Cracker Barrels while travelling from Canada.Have too say, the Chicken Noodle Soup at Bradenton is the most flavourful Chicken Noodle Soup I have had at a Cracker Barre.Additionally, Shannon, our server, was/is One of The Best. Very attentive, efficient and courteous. l
Charming, great food, small restaurant. This is one of the original fabulous owner-run restaurants in the Village of the Arts in Bradenton. I love the lavender flatbread with hummus, but it's the desserts that I crave. Bliss.
Amazing food, happy friendly staff. Authentic Italian dining at an affordable price. They go above and beyond for their customers.
Went to Cafe Amalfi after a good verbal review of her first visit. She, her husband, my other brother and his wife and me went the next day. BIG MISTAKE! She had her caniloni and a rice ball, her husband had lasagna, my other sister in law had a stromboli, my other brother had chicken franchese and I had the chicken marsala. Apparently the suggester and the owner have no idea of what Italian food taste like or about presentation. The stromboli and marsala had no flavor. The franchese only tasted like lemon. The chicken was pounded thin, dry and flavorless. They have no idea that marsala has wine in it. I cannot imagine what the pizza is like.
There was an employee meeting at 11 and we had to beg for service. The steak was burnt and fatty and the potatoes were cold. To top it off an hour later I had stomach problems and lost my lunch. My friend got sick too.
I personally worked at peach's and I can honestly say that i wasted my time working there. The most annoying part of the job was the food quality and management. I got really tired of serving food that I wouldn't even pay for or even eat myself, to people that are coming in for a genuine dining experience. I've seen many occasions where the restaurant is completely negligent about the food quality like expiration, storage, and insects inside the dinning room. On one occasion, the restaurants running water was out of order so that meant no clean dishes, no clean toilets, and no clean drinking water... The more disturbing part about that was the fact that they did not tell one customer, yeah that was disgusting. Servers and cooks couldn't say anything about it and had to continue to work as if nothing was wrong. Management sucked and are like puppets for the people who actually call the shots. There literally is no such thing as job security there, i got fired because a manger told me not to show up. My wife got fired 3 months after for a pancake she paid for. A PANCAKE, really? Save your time and money and go to a place that holds true to customer service and know how to value guests. I am not afraid to speak up about this because people in Bradenton need to know who they are supporting. There are so many other places with better prices and better quality, don't wait for one of there bad days to find out. God bless you if you eat there.
Last Sunday 7/20/2014 I received SEVERE food poisoning that took me down for 5 days. It was so bad I ended up in the hospital due to dehydration. I called the manager who said the owner would call me. No call. I take this as they could care less if they are the source of food poisoning. The strand is called Norwalk virus. I was the last or one of the last persons served and I ordered eggs and country fried steak with a biscuit. This food poisoning is a horrid one and I know they are the source as that is the only place I went that day and ate at. The manager did not even apologize and really this virus can kill someone. BE WARE!!!The owners don't care to follow up so take care of yourself!UPDATE owner called yelling after he saw this post and told me I needed to listen to him AFTER his place of business put me in the hospital. SO unprofessional.If this is how much they care about customers... being rude and yelling to them when they injure you, this place won't be open for long!
Two out of three visits were good service, but one visit was not so pleasant. Were seated quickly but wait for service was long and proper attention to our needs was very poor. However i will visit again only because they are in walking distance from home.
