First concern is the off smell. A definite odor of something. Food on floor in several places and on both backs. got the sampler platter chicken tenders burnt. Visually obvious but delivered to table anyway. Had to guess what sauces were. Guessing one is ranch but very runny and warm not a good sign to me. How long has it been out of cooler? i commented on mess at booth. The waiter said there was a just at this booth and he would clean it up. Been awhile its still there. Oh look theres a fork down there also. Food finally arrived fries are barely warm. Details over looked such as side items wants and dislikes. Empty dishes from sammpler still here. Wonder why! They are not busy at all. My burger is cold doesn,t taste bad but not great. My beer was good and cold not a hard thing to achieve. Chicken wing still riddled with feathers. Server pleasant but seems very rushed. Again not very busy. There are many better choices within 5 minutes of here thet have similar menu. I will not be returning.
Upon walking in to Hodak's, do not expect to be greeted by a smiling hostess. Actually, don't expected to be greeted at all. The bartender did not acknowledge us and several waitress stepped around us. We stood for several minutes before a patron told us where we could be seated. After a long wait in line, a surly waitress showed us to our table. Unsurprisingly, there was no servers in the vicinity. Our waitress finally showed up and actually (gasp!) apologized for our wait and asked to take our drink orders. We'd had plenty of time to look at the menu so we placed our food order as well. The food was pretty good but not worth the hassle. The management at Hodak's needs to realize that customers should be treated well instead of as a nuisance.
54th Street is one of our favorite chains. We enjoy the food most of the time. This particular restaurant is particularly awful. On occasions when we actually make it to a table, the service is always slow. Today, we didn't quite make it that far. When we arrived, we left our name and number with the hostess so we could be texted when our table was ready. We were told 45 minutes. An hour and six minutes passed before we received a text telling us that it would be 45 minutes and they would text us when our table was ready. You can imagine our changrin at being told to wait another 45 minutes! Then when we finally received notification of our table, we kept receiving texts telling us our table was ready. I cannot recommend this store.
Visiting from out of town, we were a little doubtful of the quality of The Feasting Fox due to quick judgments of the remotely sketchy surrounding area. However, we were in for quite a surprise! The restaurant is a quiet place (with video surveyed parking) with gorgeous antique decorations and comfy booths and tables. Though not every item is German originally, it was all delicious and in generous portions, especially the weinerschnitzel (chicken), toasted ravioli, sausage sampler, and black bean soup. The waiter was very attentive and extremely helpful when discussing food allergens with us and the chef, and even ran after us when we forgot our credit card. The Feasting Fox is certainly a diamond in the rough.
I just returned from the galleria location and had a terrible experience. Waitress was fine and the chopped salad was wonderful but had a horrible pasts that my friend and I were splitting. It wasn't hot, the pasta was not cooked enough and it was incredibly bland. Two minutes after we had taken our first bite we told the waitress. She offered to get us something else but we declined as we couldn't stay much longer. However with a little on each plate and most in the bowl with little to nothing eaten by us they still charged us for the pasta. Manager did not bother talking with us and the place was very empty on a Wednesday night. Will be an extremely long time before we ever return.
We live in South City but were driving north to see my mom and needed to grab a quick bite to eat. We would've ended up at Jack in the Box at 367 and Redmann except we passed this place and decided to stop. The guy who waited on us (I'm assuming the owner?) was SO NICE. He let us try some falafel while we waited (it was awesome). The food was good, reasonably priced, and had generous portions. Much of the menu reminded me of the Ferguson Burger Bar (RIP :( ) but then he added his own touches too like the falafel, schwarma, etc. Really good. Definitely will be back!
I went into Houlihan's Sunday night and had a great experience the waiter was really nice she kept checking on us the drinks were great and the wings were off the chain that was my first time going to Houlihan's and I must say that it was an exceptional experience I would go back in the future and bring others as well I definitely recommend this place for anyone who just wants to have a drink you know and be sociable you know in the late hours and the prices aren't too bad as well!!!! great please
AL's Restaurant in downtown St Louis is a one of a kind fine dining treasure. The history, ambiance, food and service is second to none. Have a drink in their river boat bar which takes you back to the early 1800's which is depicted by the large mural that is painted around the bar. The bar itself is a replica of an 1800's river boat and gives you that Disney attractions effect. Al's is a must to dine at and a St Louis destination.
Unbelievable!! They actually charge you for a pizza box! If you order a pizza to go or even take some home there is s charge for a box. Isn't that already included in the price of a pizza? I'm really appalled by the nerve of them charging for a to go box. And then to blatantly putting it on the bill. It's already over priced as is and to charge for the box it comes in. COM'ON MAN!!
Man you gotta try Hodak's chicken, it's to die for, I have been eating there for over 40 years. Whenever I return to STL it is a must do. It's a St. Louis thang. If you don't like their chicken your probably not from here, but then I don't like Motza in NYC. We all have an opinion. If you do like their chicken bless your heart.
