Re: “The Elbow Room

Please update the address. They moved from Ellsworth to Walnut ages ago. Their old address is now the home of 1947 Tavern.

Re: “Galleria 6

Walked into theatre with a large tea just purchased from Starbucks, and they would not allow me to take in, presumably so that they could sell more junk food. The galleria 6 does not sell tea or coffee. A more seasoned, customer service-oriented manager would have realized that mature patrons would not dispose of the tea and turn around and buy kiddie treats - gummy bears and coke. All this unthinking manager and his staff did was irritate a customer who paid $10+ to see a movie. Don't think I'll be coming back.

Re: “1311

This, of course, is just an opinion of mine. I personally think good drinks and a fun atmosphere is the way to go when it comes to a bar. You absolutely cannot come in here and leave without making friends, or at very least having an amazing conversation. People watching is fun here, the cheap (strong) drinks bring in quite a interesting crowd. The music is good, it's diverse, so you don't get sick of hearing the same stuff over and over. They have a jukebox in the back if you care to take over DJing for a bit. They do have $5 pizzas. For those of you who enjoy craft beers, this is surely the place to be, as they have over 100 different kinds of crafts, and new ones in all the time that they post on facebook.com/pages/1311/… . If you've never had a craft, just ask any of the staff and they will be happy to explain them to you, and find one you're sure to enjoy based on your palate. They also have 8 big screen HD TVs, and a projector, for you to enjoy all sports games possible.

I'll admit, I am pretty biased. I'm one of their doormen, my name is Paul. On that note I'll add that I don't get paid for this, and I don't make any sort of commission. I just noticed that there are no up to date reviews on this place, so I thought I could leave some information. If you ever have any questions about anything, you are always welcome to ask me. I hope to see you at our bar soon, and I hope you leave some reviews for me to read! I'll leave a list of our specials below.

$5 Captain & Coke pitchers.
or (depending on the day of the week)
$5 Smirnoff Vodka pictures. Any flavor with any mixer you could imagine. There are 1,000's of possibilities. Some of the common favorites are Coke & Vanilla (vanilla coke), Blue Pitches are blueberry vodka with sprite and Blue Curaçao to add some color, and watermelon or strawberry vodka with cranberry juice.
$3 Fireballs or MiniBeers.
$4 Grape or Cherry Bombs.
$5 Pints of homemade Sangria. (Tastes amazing.)
$2.50 Coors Lite aluminum pints.

They also have a few beer specials, but those change by the day, stop on by to see all of those.

Re: “Wheelhouse at the Rivers Casino

I am a customer at the rivers casino and I work in the food industry and impay close attention to their service workers, since I am a fellow waitress. I see this one waitress whomworks her butt off, is very pleasant and is very good with people. Everytime I come to their casino the management is very biased and gives more tables to other people. I pay close attention to how other restaurants work because I was thinking about applying for a waitress position for the wheelhouse. I have seen favoritism and that is completely wrong. I see a hard worker waitress that should be the best waitress there, but I notice the hostess will seat other waitresses more. This is not fair. Somebody hire up that manages food service needs to take a look at the managers there and the employees to make sure that everything is by the book and managers are not showing favoritism.

Re: “Starlite Lounge

Myself and 7 other people walked into this place and stayed for
about 1 minute.
The cigarette smoke was appalling and there was even someone
smoking one of those little cigars.
Had seen it on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives and thought we would
give it a try but decided it wasn't worth inhaling smoke. I'm sure this
place loses a lot of business because it allows smoking. Aren't
there laws about smoking in a restaurant?
We decided to choose an alternative place that was smoke free.

Re: “Artifacts

Very Rude!!!!!!
I went in to ask some questions about a statue my wife's grandmother, the previous owner of the West End Cafe, had purchased years earlier. Before I could even finish asking the questions, the clerk (possibly the owner) interrupted me, stated he couldn't help me in a very rude and aggravated tone of voice, stated that he was not an appraiser, and walked out of the room leaving me standing there. I wasn't looking for an appraisal, and wanted to ask him about some of the other things he had there, but he never figured that out because he was too rude and full of himself. I will never go in there again. I am an attorney and real estate broker, but he didn't know that because it was my day off and he didn't bother to find out anything about me. AVOID this business at all costs!!!

Re: “El Campesino

My fiance and I have driven by El Campesino restaurant in Robinson Town Center a handful of times on our countless shopping trips and had always wanted to visit there. All of our friends had gone there many times and kept bragging about how good the restaurant was. So we finally decided to give it a try..

Re: “Kelly's Bar & Lounge

What kind of bar makes you feel like you're underage when you aren't and have a 100% valid driver's license to prove it?

Our server refused to accept my Minnesota driver's license. I suggested they scan it, but the server said they didn't have one, which I later found out to be false. The server also refused to acknowledge that my other forms of ID (credit card, school ID, etc) matched my driver's license. It seemed as though the server was just set on not serving my party and I.

Minnesota licenses are made out of a rubber-like compound, which may arouse some suspicion, but seriously at least try to verify my ID in some objective manner. He also stated that because my party had licenses from different states (we are students), "clearly" that meant all of our IDs were fake.

My experience at Kelly's was quite upsetting.

AVOID if you have an out-of-state or international ID--they only trust Pennsylvania driver's licenses!

Re: “Blush

Dirty with roaches the size of mice. Owner treats girls like shit yelling at them right in front of a customer. Best place in town because of location, but charges extreme prices. Just negotiated great deal for alcohol then raises prices acting like he's being hurt to. Get drunk else where then go in and stare at the women

Re: “Perle Champagne Bar

been there 4 times and had a wonderful times with friends. the first time we tried an assortment of tapas and with each bit i wa like "oh my God" it was that good. the delicate fusuin of flafors were a treat indeed. I always let the handsome manager sugest a cocktail and i haven't been disappointed. An enjoyable relaxing 4 hours just breezes by. I tend to avoid crowds so i haven't gone on a weekend night when there's entertainment. I'll have to try that. when we went there was nice music in the background that wasn't so loud that you couldn't enjoy good conversation with your friends. the last time wejust met friends for a drink and the manager sugested Velozi's for dinner. He actually walked us over, procured us the best table for six and introduced us to the owner. what an evening of great company great coctails and great food.

Re: “El Campesino

Food is ok, service is very slow & wait staff not attentive. Had to sit for 20 minutes waiting for a drink while the server ate his dinner. No wonder the place was a ghost town during the "dinner rush." Will not go back.
