Went to the new 84th location and it was an awful experience. The place was relatively busy, but not full. We didn‘t get the waitress to come over for our drink order until we had been there for 45 minutes. Someone in our group ordered an appetizer of fries. After another 45 minutes of no appetizer or food, we were told our food would be out shortly. We never received the appetizer and they brought out our salads without napkins or silverware that we had to go and get ourselves. We ordered another round of drinks that took so long, we again had to go get them ourseves. When we finally got our food, they missed one of the meals, so that came out even later. We were then charged an automatic gratuity since we were a table of 6. We complained about the service and were told they would give us gift certificates. The manager came back and took our email addresses since they were out of gift cards and told us they would email us gift cards in two days. A week later, none of us have received them.

Had a bad experience. Probably won‘t go back for a while. It was more like a mock opening.

Food is very ok. We had no problem with the wait staff, but one of our party ordered the fish and chips and when the order came there was no "chips". Were told this is a side item. Really? Never go back.

Went to the new location at 83rd and Holdredge last night. Had a horrible experience. We got there and sat out by the pool tables, we were there for 10-15 minutes and nobody even acknowledged our group. We then moved to a table in the main dining area and sat there for another 10 minutes without any wait staff at all even stopping by our table. It was very hot outside and almost as hot inside, we did notice that only one of the ceiling fans was turned on out of the 7-8 that we saw. We finally got up and left after 25 minutes of being ignored, not even a waitress stopping by our table. Have always had great service and food at the downtown location, seems I may have to head back that way

Waitress staff acted like we weren‘t even there. Husband had to get drinks at bar as we were being ignored. Food was so-so. We were there with others. We all ordered right away, and got an appetizer. Cheese sticks were mostly empty, so waitress put order back in. We got them after our meal. We will not be going back there.
