This was my first visit to Hamely' Steakhouse. Two for dinner on Friday evening about 6pm. The dining room was full so we went to the bar. The bar was about 1/2 full and the crowd was a good mix of older and younger people. After a being greeted promptly and having our drink orders taken we proceeded to wait, and wait, and wait. After about twenty minutes our waitstaff person came by and said our drinks would be out soon. We were informed that they were going off shift and someone else would take our order. I looked around at the other tables hoping to see a steak or two to give me a clue about their beef, but no one was ordering steaks, so we ordered a spinach salad and a half chicken. When our order arrived the salad did not match the description on the menu but was acceptable. The chicken was over cooked with the skin and sauce burned on the leg and end to the point of making those portions to hard to cut with a knife. The BBQ sauce that was not burned was quite good, it had a nice balance of flavors and I would like to taste it on some of their other offerings. The ranch style beans tasted like they came straight from a can. The high point on the plate was the slaw, which was fresh, dressed well and quite tasty with good sweet and sour tang. The staff, while friendly seemed to be unfamiliar with their jobs and not at all knowledgeable about the menu. To their credit when I criticized the food a manager was sent over and I was offered something else and was comped a berry cobbler that was good and large enough for two people. Hamley Steakhouse did not live up to the build up I had been given, but as first visits go it was not all bad and I will give them another try later to see if this was a fluke or if they really do need to make a change.
