Re: “Riley's Pour House

Today, I believe I received the worst service, I received in the 63 years of my life. I and a friend arrived at the Pour House at the same time as another couple. The only seats that were opened happen to be at the bar next to the other couple. We were asked what we would like to drink and then the server asked the other couple what they would like to drink. The server then severed us our drinks and the other couple their drinks. She then took the other couples order and walked right past me and my friend and never asked if we were ready to order or not. Seven minutes later the other couple received their order and we were still waiting to be asked what we wanted to order. I waited an addition ten minutes and after the failure of The Poor House to take my order for breakfast, I pushed my paper placemat to the front of the bar and told the drink maker that I no longer wish to order from a restaurant that fails to service their customers. My servicer finally arrived to take my order, 37 minutes after I received my first drink and asked if we wanted anything to eat. She stated the she was working outside and was very busy and our food was on her. I told her that that the other waitress may have informed her that I was upset but they also failed to inform her that I was no longer interested in ordering from a restaurant that treated their customers the way she did. I started to tell her that she had no problem taking the order of the couple next to me but she did not hear this, since she walked away from me before we finished our conversation. 45 minutes to take my order in unacceptable. I will never waist my morning in a place with such poor service. At least we know where their name comes from. Pour House, I believe not is it more like Poor Service!!!

Re: “Mario's South Side Saloon

Bouncer who called himself "Jim" accused me of using a fake ID. (I turned 25 last week, my girlfriend surprised with tickets to a game at Heinz) this Jim guy pulled a knife on me trying to intimidate me into confessing it was fake? Not sure what his motive was but it happened. He told me his manager wasn't there, he lied. I went and found him and before could explain myself this Asian guy "Jim" came up telling his manager I tried to fight him! THIS OPERATION IS A JOKE - if you're in your mid 20s better make sure you bring a passport. I have seen several other reviews of similar things happening with an Asian bouncer. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND!

Re: “Emiliano's Mexican Restaurant & Cantina

Horrible. The service was lousy and the food was so bland and tasteless. Will never go back. The margarita tasted like the liquid you are required to consume for a colonoscopy. Nasty. I was always under the impression that Mexican food was spicy since it is at other Mexican restaurants. Definitely not here. The beef quesadilla had plain ground meat and lettuce. No flavor, no onions, no spices, nothing. Even the taco meat was bland. Will not go back ever.

Re: “Spice Island Tea House

I am happy to note that, contrary to what I said in an earlier review, they now serve alcoholic beverages.

Re: “Drew's Family Restaurant

Drews Family Restaurant NEVER removes the snow from the sidewalk in front of their restaurant. Why? This is in violation of a local ordinance yet it seem like Forest Hills does NOTHING to enforce this VIOLATION. This Restaurant is NOT RECOMMENDED since they show such little concern for the safety of their neighbors.

Re: “Kelly's Bar & Lounge

Worst drink and customer service I have ever experienced from a bar. I politely asked for a cocktail menu and Caleb C. rolled his eyes at me and huffed as he turned. I ordered a Rusty Nail cocktail that had two ingredients Scotch and Drambuie of which it was poured very heavy on the Drambuie. I was polite the entire transaction saying please and thank you of which Caleb C. said nothing to either me or my friend. The people behind us even noticed his attitude towards us and even inquired upon it asking what we did to make Caleb C. frustrated with us. Caleb C. also associated the people behind us with them and proceeded to make the frequent customers Moscow Mule very sub-par as per asking them myself. I honestly feel shafted for $12.84 not only in money but in time and leaving such a bad taste in my mouth.

Re: “El Burro Comedor

My taco had barely anything on it. No real seating inside. Expensive taco. Was very good tasting. As I ate my food, a poster on a wall talked about Penis and something... was odd. Would get take out.

Re: “Panera Bread

Recently, at The Pointe in Robinson Township my Frontega Chicken Panini was very sloppily made and had very little chicken on it. My daughters soup (And I've had this problem at numerous locations) had no noodles in it - Chicken NOODLE soup. I spend a lot of money at Panera Bread in the area. My daughter loves the chicken noodle soup bowls and I'm tired of feeling like I am paying top dollar for food that is sub par. Previous complaints made online yielded NO reply from company. I may not visit again for a long time, if ever.

In addition, at numerous stores I have seen the tables are not being kept wiped off which is frustrating when you are carrying a tray and need an acceptable place in which to eat.

Re: “Max's Allegheny Tavern

Love it. Simple German food. Nice variety of German beers. Very affordable. Don't forget to go to the old bar in the cellar.

Re: “Sesame Inn

I don't think this place deserves a star, food cold,overpriced,they just put the unflavorful food on a white plate, no garnish,atmosphere sad,what happened.? I certainly hope the Mt.Lebonon inn is still good. My General Tsos was bland,my husbands food tasted a day old, bad.

Re: “Eat 'n Park

My name is Mary. I am responding to the message that I received from the assistant manager. I told him that I fell on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant. He told me that he was going to talk to Amy, the manager. She called me at 4:58 yesterday and told me that she was going to talk with the Corporate office. Amy called me this morning at 9:58 and told me that the sidewalk is the property of the borough. I looked it up. She LIED to me. I want to be recompensed. I want to meet and talk with Mr. Broadhurst, but not at the McKees Rocks eat n park.

Re: “Sloppy Joe's

I love going to sloppy joes always a blast. The bartender is terrific. Drinks are good and don't cost a fortune. The best is D.J. Cathy, she is awesome, she engages the crowd and is full of energy. I always have a good time.

Re: “Sloppy Joe's

I would highly recommend going on Tuesdays when DJ Cathy is there doing her thing. I am from Detroit and came across Sloppy Joe's with people with me from all over the Midwest. We will never visit Pittsburgh again without going to Sloppy Joes and putting down a few cold ones while being entertained by DJ Cathy. Sloppy Joes and DJ Cathy is a winning combination.

Re: “Sloppy Joe's

Karaoke on Tuesdays is so much fun! Really laid-back environment and everyone was very nice. The blonde DJ is really hot too!
