Much improved

I have been here a few times over the past year or so, and I have to say things seem to have gotten better. Our server was super friendly, and was always right there with drinks when needed. The menu is what you'd expect, nothing mind blowing. But unlike in the past, the wings were juicy (sure they are smaller, but at least they are not that breaded crap!) and you get great fries and the best dipping sauce around. My wife had the pizza, which is suprisingly good. Our waitress said that they've got a bunch of new cooks in the back, and it shows. Its not where you'd go for fine dining, but for some good drinks and decent bar food, it's tough to beat.

Never Again Ever

We will never be back to this place again! We thought we would give it a shot after golf. BAD decision, the wings were small, tasteless and burnt and the fries were frozen. When we complained, we were told that the there was nothing that could be done. The frustrating part is that the owner was sitting at the bar and couldn't be bothered to deal with us, leaving a 19-20 year old to tell us "sorry, he can't come over, he is busy" Busy? Yah right, no one was there, that should have been our first hint.

Too many other places....

Not impressed. Not happy with overall outcome. Dipping sauce was good but wings were dry. Ribs were OK but nothing to brag about. Servers were great and made the experience better.

Gave them another chance...last one.

Last year at this time, I visited this restaurant with my softball team several times - only to be greeted with lousy service and tasteless food. Well, it is tournament time again, and St Louis is the HQ again. We received three gift certificates as part of the league, and frankly, we will pay more and eat elsewhere next time. The Ribs were strictly average...but the portions were WAY too small for the price. The Wings are *still* small and dried out. Hardly anything worth claiming as the best in town. The burger arrived, and we were sure it was one of the cheap bear paw burgers you buy at the grocery store, and the server didn't bring out any typical burger condiments. Finally, our server completely forgot to order the food I asked for. Everybody else got food...not me. By the time the waitress tracked everything down, everybody else was done eating, so I just canceled my order. I gave them the benefit of the doubt considering my last visit was shortly after they opened. No more...even if we get coupons next year, we'll eat elsewhere. So far, this is the worst place in Waterloo to try to eat.

Very Disappointed

My husband and I decided to try this new place and we were both in the mood for some bar food. We walked in and were right away greeted and sat, which was nice. BUT...then we sat for ten minutes before anyone came over. Now I am a server myself and I'm sorry there was no need for that. The restaurant was definetly NOT busy. So we ordered. When the food came, our disappointment continued. The portions where HORRIBLE! Especially the combo plate. For $17.95, we expected more than 7 fries and the pathetic finger food that was presented. The wings - which I thought that since they are what the restaurant is KNOWN for would be good - WRONG. They were completely dried out and tasteless. Over all we were really disappointed and won't be back again. It is unfortunate because the bar looks nice, to bad that the service and food did not.

Awesome

This place is awesome! I received a warm greeting at the door when I entered which made me feel comfortable right from the get go. Sitting at the bar the staff were friendly and eager to serve me. A pint of Molson Canadian came in a branded glass served on a Canadian coaster and I noticed that the additional 9 draft brands did as well so needles to say I was very impressed being the beer lover that I am! I ordered a regular order of wings medium. They looked smaller than normal but that is because they don't add a ton of breading like most places do and were juicy and full of flavour--and came with a good quantity of fries. The hockey game was on and unlike most places the music was off and the sound was up so you could hear the play by play which I really enjoyed! I will definetely be back!

Not very impressed. Better places in town for wings. Server was nice and friendly but service was mediocre. Wings were dry/burned and salty. The only thing that saved them was dipping sauce. Fries were pretty good, but a little over cooked. TV's are good,but better places to watch sports. Won't be back.

The wings are good but the portion sizes are soooooo small and they were cold. I counted my fries and I got 8 fries!!! The chicken wraps had no meat in them, well at least not that you could see or taste. My daughter had the adult chicken fingers and they gave her three chicken fingers and a maybe a dozen fries. For the price of each plate I expected more. I enjoyed the Kitchener location more bigger portions. I expect more for a $60.00 meal.

This restaurant has a great atmosphere, and really great staff! BUT for a place that is known for their wings, maybe they should consider buying some bigger, juicy'er wings. I found the wings over done. That hot and honey sauce however was great! and the Dill sauce that the fries come with was really good as well. One thing i have found after being there a few times is, when st. louis first opened at this location the food was of much better quality, and in the last few months the wings/drumsticks have deffinitly gotten of worse quality!

Wings were great and prices were too. Lots of deals. Nachos are a bit different but lots of them. Very good. Service was fine. Other places in town say their wings are better but you can't beat the combination of quality and price here. Lots of sports on TV here too if you want it. Strongly recommended

The wings are not very good, very, very dry. The fries are typical restaurant fries but they do give you a pretty amazing dill dip. Overall will probably not order the wings again but the atmosphere was good.

The restaurant itself typical Bar and Grill. They like to think they have attitude, and therefore, are a little different, but I saw little to differentiate them from other restaurants of the same kind. All the usual appetizers, sandwiches, salads, ribs and wings. And Beer. The selection on tap is ok with a number of micro/craft brewed beers available. There are flat screen TV's everywhere (literally-there is even one in the bathroom). This is clearly a good place to watch the game with a beer. Service: In two visits during a softball tournament, the servers were all attentive and provided excellent service. Even though the place was full, we saw our server frequently on both visits during our stay. There are a lot of Bar and Grill restaurants that would fail miserably in the same case. Food: And now it all falls apart. Generally, the food is overpriced and the quality of what you get falls short significantly in comparison to other similar restaurants. I was disappointed that things like extra sauce was even an extra charge. I stayed away from the Ribs. At $24.95, a full rack was way too expensive for this class of restaurant. Even more disappointing is that it is a little too evident that this place is short order only. All of the meals appear to be the pre-prepared type that are simply heated and served. Regarding the food: Caesar Salad - Not any different than what you could make at home, including the Kraft dressing. Adding chicken increased the cost $5.00, and all you get is a couple of lame pieces of salad chicken. BBQ Beef Sandwich with fries - The beef was actually really tasty with an excellent bbq sauce, unfortunately it was clear that this was premade as well. The canned mushrooms on the sandwich ruined the taste of the beef. Fortunately there weren't too many mushrooms. Is it too much to ask for fresh ingredients from a bar and grill restaurant? Basket of Fries - For $5.00 you get a *plate* of fries (not a basket), and there were barely more on the plate than what I received with my BBQ Beef sandwich. The fries themselves were left in the fryer too long but still tasty with the dill sauce that comes with them. Wings - Easily the worst wings I've seen at a place that prides itself on its wings directly in its signage. They were tiny, and lacked flavour. The suicide sauce was more like a mediocre medium. It wouldn’t be so bad if they were cheap, but they are hardly for budget oriented. $10 gets you a measly 9 little wings, something that will surely leave you wanting more. Trade up to the large and you are shelling out almost $18 for 18 wings. To get an idea for how small they are, several people on my team reached into the basket to grab a french fry, and pulled out a wing by mistake. In many cases, the fries were fatter than the wings. Conclusion: The only reason I would return is if this place is the headquarters for our league tournament again.

To start, I ordered a strawberry daiquiri, the waitress told me they didnt have this, which is very unusual for a bar - but then came back telling me they had left overs from a party they held.They ended up charging me $7.00!!! I ordered spinach dip to eat because they didn't have poutine. I found this strange because most Bar & Grills will have this. Their menu was very, very limited cosidering the large size of this restaurant. When my spinach dip arrived it was room temperature and in some places the dip was even cold. When I nicely asked the waitress to warm it up, she didn't seem impressed. When it got back to the kitchen we heard a loud smash and about 10 minutes later she told me they made a fresh one. I don't want to assume the cook was mad and threw it, but it sure sounded that way. The second plate was hot but Ive definitely had better spinach dip!! It was not very good. My husband ordered fish and chips, and my kids each had chicken fingers and fries. The waitress only brought one order out, and told me she thought I asked for one for them to share after waiting for a while, so my daughter had to wait 10 minutes more for hers. My daughter also has Pepsi with her order and it was completely flat and tasted awful. My son wanted a milk shake, but they didnt have this either. So instead he had warm chocolate milk. After we were finished we shared a Chudleighs apple blossom which at other restaurants is deliciously flaky because its baked. Here, it was clearly microwaved as it had a bad texture and took about a minute to come out. To finish things off, the bill was $50.00!!! All I had was an appetizer and the kids had kids meals, my husband had fish and chips! Portions were small, and food was not up to par. (Nor were the drinks, or avaiable options) I tipped the waitress over 17% and she didn't even say thank you. We will definitely not be returning to this restaurant ever again.
