Don’t go there, this place is awful !!!
My wife ordered baby back ribs and it was ok but I ordered Rosted duck and the duck was disgusting, duck was deep fried and smelled really bad I have never ate anything worst. Plus thay served us an appetizers what we didn’t order and we found out later that’s the appetizer is served for free with every dinner but they add it to the bill just because they couldn’t charge us for that disgusting duck.
I don’t recommend this place at all, they will go out of business really quick if they will keep doing business like this.
I attended a dinner seminar here on February 22nd. The steak and potato were great but the service was subpar. The integrity of the staff is questionable at best. The waiter failed to inform me that soft drinks were not included in the dinner package. During dinner service he never once came back to offer a refill. When the manager sent the waiter to speak to me, he did apologize but then lied and said the staff wasn't allowed in and out of the private room. When I corrected him he then told me he had other tables and was busy. The manager, Keno, (who did not apologize) said it was their mistake not to mention the charge and not to offer a refill but that I had to pay otherwise they would have to pay for it. It seems like $3.00 is worth more to them then good service, happy customers, and a good reputation .
We recently celebrated our daughter's engagement at Petey's II, a party of 29 people. The management along with the servers were friendly and attentive. Everything was prepared to our liking and we all enjoyed our dinners along with the deserts. Our guests were very satisfied and said the best things about us chosen this place for our daughter's special event. We are coming back and spread the wonderful experience we had to our friends and coworkers. Thank you, you guys rock!!!
I could take it or leave it. I had a few negative things to say about this restaurant, but I also have a few positive comments. Overall, this restaurant seems to cater mostly to a senior citizen clientele.
Let's start with the positives... This is one of the few restaurants that still gives you a relish tray of fresh vegetables and three appetizer salads with your basket of bread. This was popular in the 1970's and it's a great idea. The vegetables were very fresh and the salads were surprisingly good. Next, the servers were excellent. Our server came back to check on us a few times, kept our drinks full, and was very good about some strange requests because of our children (one of whom is a very picky eater). Next, the prices were very reasonable for the amount of food you get. Finally, with regard to the positives, the overall quality of the ingredients seems to be very good, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the meals are good. That being said, let's move into...
The negatives. When we arrived, there was no host/hostess. That's fine, I can understand that a host can't be at the front all day long. As we waited (about five minutes), servers passed by without a word. Not only did they walk by without even a smile, none of them even remarked, "Oh, the host will be right with you" or "Let me get someone to seat you." They literally walked by as if we were invisible. Considering the outstanding service we received after sitting down, this was extremely odd. Once the host arrived, he looked at me and said, in a bothered tone, "Can I help you?" The way he spoke to us, he might as well have said, "You don't look like you're here to eat, so what the hell do you want?" In any case, he seated us and our dining experience began. The next negative is that the chef/cook doesn't seem to have ever heard of salt or butter. This could be due to the fact that the average age of the clientele is probably around 75 years old. Many older diners tend to stay away from salt and fat, so my guess is that the food is purposely prepared "bland." This is a real shame though because it's obvious that the ingredients are very fresh and are of a very good quality. I ordered a prime rib steak. The portion size was excellent and it was cooked perfectly. Unfortunately, it had absolutely no seasoning on it. Had they seasoned the meat and/or finished it with a pat of butter, the steak would have been excellent. My wife, if I recall correctly, had a chicken with pasta dish (I could be wrong, but I think she had a chicken primavera type of dish). She said hers was "acceptable," but there was absolutely no seasoning. My daughter's meal was also unseasoned.
In summation, the host wasn't very gracious, but the servers were exceptional. The ingredients were of a good quality and the general cooking/preparation was excellent, but every meal we had was only mediocre because it doesn't appear that they season the food at all.
In conclusion, if someone asked, "How is Petey's II?" I would probably respond by saying, "Eh, you could eat there." It's not good, but it's not bad. Hopefully, the owner will recognize the potential of this restaurant and the cooking staff because with a little salt, a little butter, and a spice rack, the food here could be exceptional.
