We would like to respond to the last post regarding the Mickey bounce house for Sunday June 9th 2013.We did tried several times to confirm this order, finally Saturday night after 9:00pm customer answer to confirm the order, few minutes later she stated that it will be raining the next day around 1:00pm, she was not sure what to do, we do not give any refunds after we set up the equipment, the answer from us was the following,Let us know between 9:00am to 10:00am if you still want the unit, which she never did around 11:15am we send her a new email informing that if they still need the unit it will be deliver between 1:00pm to 1:30pm but we need then to get in touch with us first, at 12:05pm she start calling asking where is the bouncer? why is not here?Well, she did not called us, we did not insist because every ones knows that we had a tropical storm during the weekend which made difficult to have a party outdoors, and YES after insulting us for being careful we did replied to them,GOD BLESS!In fact Jamilynne did ordered a combo from us, it wasn't the world of Disney as she mentioned before, we do not carry that unit, she ordered the Mickey Clubhouse 5 in 1 Combo licensed unit, reservation was made on line by her and she included the customer address same as the delivery address, we at Amazing Jumps confirm all the reservations three days before, reservation was made from 1:00pm to 9:00pm when we proceeded to confirm the order we told her that we could be there any time between 9:00am to 1:00pm to deliver and pick up can be up to 3 hours late, she agreed on that and payment will be on cash.The day of the event our driver came to the address given by the customer, at that moment is when we found out that she was planning to do the event at the park, why she give us her home address as the park location? that we don't know .We called her to try to find out if she had a reservation on the park, she said that she do not need one, well in our business practice we need to see and check a park reservation prior to the event, we do that contacting the park and recreation from Manatee County, also we need to get a copy from a customer providing the park reservation, an utility bill and driver license number, we do all this because we need to know with who we leave our equipment specially the Mickey combo which cost is over $3995.00 dollars.She stated she will be there until 9:00pm to look for the unit, at that time the our driver noticed a sign on the park that said close at dawn, that's mean it will be dark by 5:45pm (on January).Which company will leave a bouncer with out confirming any reservation with the park?which customer will stay on a park until 9:00pm?Why she wait until the last moment to tell us that it was a park, when she included her home address same as the park?We offered to do the delivery at her house if she want it to that option, she refused to do that, she did not ordered a portable generator for that location which is what people do when the do reservation at parks when there is no electricity, we know now that she did not do that because she did not want us to find out that the location was a public place, we do not know what she want it to do but it was not anything good, We are now more careful than even on any person who would like to rent from us, specially when we are an approved vendor for 5 of 6 counties that we cover, (SARASOTA county do not allow any bounce company to deliver on their parks).We hope you find this information helpfulRespectfully,Amazing JumpsWe Kick The Party Off Inc(877) 355-8677www.wekickthepartyoff.com
Man Im so mad that this diner has escaped my culinary radar screen for this long! I have missed out on some really great food and meeting a really great staff. Had the burger this past Saturday along my wife and we had an order of fresh cut piping hot fries in an overfilled basket. All of it delicious! Met the owner Keith, a real genuinely nice guy. He spent a lot of the time making sure we were comfortable, well taken care of, and knew his philosophy and what Oakleys offered its customers. The Burger was simply amazing, hot juicy, stuffed with toppings and flavor. Fries were excellent and perfectly salted. I wasnt overly excited with the drinks offered, never a big fan of what I call "fake" tea, (Peak, Lipton, etc.) I love homemade southern sweet tea and at the level of food being presented here agt Oakleys it deserves better. So the food and experience was so good on Saturday I had to return with my wife and other family members and I had to try the Ribeye Philly Cheesesteak. It is easily the best cheesesteak I have ever experienced. We met the owners son Ryan, and Keith you can be very proud as he matched your level of service and communication with my family and other customers today. We are now going to be loyal frequent return customers and you are really missing the boat if you don't give Oakleys Grille a try. This is a platinum operation and taste for sure.Thank you Oakleys grille.
Just visited last weekend for the first time since they changed their menu and their scope from being a "farm to table" different menu every week restaurant to more of an Americana sort of predictable dining experience. And while I miss the funny adventurous menu, it's now the sort of place I can take people without worrying if they're going to order head cheese and not realize that that dish isn't actually cheese (google it...). Gone are the days of ordering something there only to either be very surprised (in one way or another) at your flavor experience. So: This time around everything was excellent and they actually had ketchup! The staff is cool, and it reminds me of a college town sort of restaurant except they seem to take it all very seriously even though it's become more of a burger and roast chicken place.Craft beer selection is good, wine selection my wife thinks is fun (I don't know anything about that) and overall I really enjoyed the new "Refinery" even if in many ways it's the same. Sitting upstairs on the patio in the nice weather at sunset is a bonus!
It's OK but ultimatly the food was bland,needs more seasoning and flavor.* A+ to F- Scale A+=Excellent,C=Standard,F- =RepulsiveMy opinion (Would not denigrate another person's hard work,food industry is hardest.), Quality: C-, ingredient's in Lana roll were little better than expected,curry puffs were low quality almost zero flavor. Salad was cheap iceberg lettuce with carrot shreddings,poorly matched peanut sauce,much more spices needed.Uniqueness: My first Thai restaurant.Convenience: C,Hours should be extended to 11:00 p.m.Service: C-, No utensils or napkins with my take away food.Difficult to understand servers elaborate menu options though they spoke English,I need to know what I am eating.Ambience: A,impressed well done.Presentation:B,I do enjoy eye appeal with my meal,makes food some how more pleasurable.Quantity: C,Plenty of menu options,sampler option would be popular, descriptions need to be present on all menu options and susinct. Price: D+, $4.50 for 1 standard 12oz bottle is not toleratable even if it is foreign beer.
A good, non-chain southern BBQ place, but with more of a Kansas City style BBQ, very authentic, seems like it's been there for years. Quite often its packed but I've been able to walk right in, get a table and sit down to ribs in a matter of minutes. Service is great, all the staff seems like family or that they've been there a long time. Their BBQ sauce is also quite good. The chicken is great and cheap with two sides, the sausage is respective southern style and good, and the ribs can be either just good, or very good. On the other side: Pulled pork is bland. And the beef (may not be served anymore) was very dry and bland, I pretty much couldn't eat it and it's not recommended.Sides are simple and passable, the sort of stuff that you'd expect at a southern potluck, which I rather enjoyed. Desert, the Apple Cake with vanilla ice cream is excellent. So: Good for ribs and chicken, and sausage, sides are simple but good, but other items on the menu are passable at best. Why would you want something aside the ribs anyway?
I have been with Amazing Jumps and the owner for the past 10 years. We are a church and a preschool and so when we do events we are not only doing them for our members but for guest. It is very important for us that everything at our event is the best quality. If a guest is not pleased with what we provide, then it is our poor reflection on us. I can count on Amazing Jumps to provide the cleanest and safest jumpers. We do at least 5 huge events a year and have never been disappointed with the quality. It is like a brand new jumper every time. They are always on time and are courteous and helpful. They know the importance of giving back and have worked with us to support projects at many of the elementary schools. The quality, price and consistency can't be beat.

Just wanted to thank you again for providing the chiavari chairs for my daughter’s third birthday tea party. Working with your business was great. In making our reservation, you were extremely easy to work with via paypal and email. You remembered some of the small details we discussed, like adding extra chair pads to boost up the little ones, even after I had forgotten them! I especially appreciated your patience and understanding when car trouble caused us to be delayed in arriving to the party, and you were there right on time as promised. We appreciated your reliability and dependability, and your willingness to dropoff and pickup the chairs on the same day from our outdoor venue. Several of our guests commented on how nice the chairs looked and how much they added to making our tea party feel special and “grown up”, transforming a simple picnic area into something special. Thank you for helping make our party a success!
This pertains to the Chili's on Bruce B Downs in New Tampa only. My family and I have been to this Chili's on many occasions in the past so on 6/2/13 we decided to drop in for an evening meal. It was raining on our arrival and they were not as busy as they usually are. We were seated promptly and were waiting for a server to take our drink order when 2 other couples were seated adjacent to our booth. After no response for about 15 minutes a server came out and took the order of the other table before ours. At that time my wife told the server we had been waiting almost 20 minutes and we were there before they were. His response was less than adequate at which time we did something we have never done in my 56 years of age. We promptly got up and left your establishment and went across to Friday's for our meal where the service was perfect. I gave 3 stars for past times. THIS ONE FAILED MISERABLY.
My new favorite place to eat the last couple of months. Lived here since 2002 and never until recently set foot in here. The greeters definitely make you feel welcome. I often get seated with Debbie. She is awesome! Food is much better and better priced compared to the new Applebees that opened across the street a few months ago.To the veteran complaining above.....the discount isn't something you demand. It's a privately owned restaurant, not a big chain fast food joint. They have to make money. The active duty rule is fair. Don't be selfish. I'm a 6 year veteran. If I get a discount, great! If not, I'm not going to demand it, though! If you want a discount there's a BX on MacDill AFB. I'm sure you have an ID card, so use it!
I just wanted to first start off by saying what a pleasure it was working with Amazing Jumps; making everything perfect for my daughters birthday. Amazing Jumps is exactly that AMAZING!!!! We got the water slide and the Princess bounce house and they were great! The kids (and adults) had such a great time. But the biggest hit was the snow cone machine! The kids and adults couldn't get enough. Everything was clean, early, and picked up without hassle. Its so nice to find a company that cares more about there customer and not there bottom line. This company is grade A++++ Thank you so much! We will be doing this again this Summer for sure! This is the place to kick the party off and keep it going! God Bless.
