Re: “Townhouse Lounge

Great bands/music but the bartenders and most of the waitresses have a bad attitude and service is very slow. Especially on Thursday, Eric the Thursday night bartender sucks in so many ways, he's slow (I'm tired from my full time job he complains!), and Eric is a total pig towards women. Bartender Shea on Tuesdays and Waitress Jennifer could use an attitude tune up too. Chad, who claims to be the owner seems disconnected from what's going on.

Wonderful staff members include waitresses Annie & Mary, both JJ's and Zack from the kitchen.

Re: “Bricks Sports Bar & Grill

Went there with friends in July (2013) and ordered call liquor. What we got was definitely not the liquor we ordered and we're all well enough acquainted with that particular brand to know exactly what it isn't. Double-checked our bill and we still got charged for call so the bartender heard us correctly. One of us was watching the pour and the right bottle was used so they must be refilling call liquor bottles with cheap liquor. We just paid and left. No sense on coming back to a place that cheats us. I wonder if the law knows about this illegal practice?

Re: “Stadium Bar and Grill

Ever since ownership changed, this place has been awful. The food and drinks are over priced and not to mention my wife got sick from the dessert. If you're really looking for a good sports bar to go to before the Sox game, go to Holy Cow, they're food is hotter, beer is colder and staff is prettier!

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

Just mentioned this to a friend who immediately regaled me with tales of rude treatment and whacko bad beer...the verdict is in.

Re: “Rawkus

Very unprofessional staff. No respect for local acts, even though they "want to build the local scene." I've never actually been screamed at by a representative of a venue, and I've played about 90% of the venues in the Springs. I warn any act going in there to expect to be treated poorly, but I hope you have a better experience when/if you play. Timbo, the main sound guy is a pure gentleman, but the rest of the crew is pretty negative.

Sound isn't terrible, but the tin roof and concrete floors really color it. Lights aren't terrible either, they have moving heads, but they project a screen saver on the back of the stage that seems pretty corny. I'm sure you can request that off though. Stage is white, not a fan of that.

All in all, I wouldn't recommend anyone to play a show here. In fact, I would say try to get the show moved to the Black Sheep or Loft or somewhere else.

Re: “Red Rock Lounge

We stopped in here New Years Eve to have a couple beers. The regulars are not at all friendly and are in fact quite hostile to outsiders. We played a game of darts and a loudmouthed regular wanted to fight us over it. When we didn't fall for his threats, he harassed us non stop as we played. Go there only if you want to get into a fight with a regular. There are bars in town with much cooler clientele.

I must say the place has taken a turn for the worst. Don't rely on my comments though, I am not afraid to be wrong.

Re: “Kelly O'Brians Sports Bar & Grill

Yes, vague is not the way I would have done it. Take responsibility for your employee's actions, what they say, you say. Two words for you: legal recourse.

Re: “Johnny's Navajo Hogan

As a real NAVAJO, who has actually grew up on the Navajo Reservation, I take offense to this establishment's name and business practice. Many native tribes are still struggling with alcoholism, drug abuse, suicide and domestic violence. There is NOTHING Navajo about this place, nor does it compliment my tribe. It is not "honoring" Navajos, it's simply furthering the stereotype that Native Americans are goofy drunks. I will be doing everything I can to spread word about this business' practice and the exploitation therein. Please note.

Re: “Holy Cow Pub & Grill

Live music on Saturday? Not if there is a game on the TV. Band standing around waiting for the game to be over before they could start playing. I go OUT to see live music, I can watch the game at home. House sound system is cranking obnoxious techno-dance mix stuff while the band stands around waiting for the game to be over? Seriously? Never did get to see the band play. They were billed to start at 8. Doorman said 8:30. We left at 9:45 without hearing a note. What a disappointment.

Re: “Keg Lounge

Use to patronize The Keg regularly for lunch. Unfortunately the last couple times, the chicken in the Berry Salad was like a rubber chicken. Food has gone down hill over the last couple of years.

Re: “Crystola Roadhouse

I WOULD RATE THIS PLACE TRIPLE ZERO, UNFORTUNATELY I HAVE TO LEAVE A ONE STAR AND IT HURTS. RUDE, NO CUSTOMER SERVICE. THEY ACT AS IF THEY ARE DOING YOU A FAVOR. HOGS WOULDN'T EVEN EAT THAT FOOD. IF YOU ENJOY BURN SOGGY SOUR FRIES, THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU. NOW I KNOW WHY THE PLACE IS ALWAYS EMPTY. THE OWNER IS A HOLE TOO. BAD ENERGY IN THAT PLACE, VERY NEGATIVE.GREAT PLACE TO GO UTE INN (WOODLAND PARK), AWESOME, FRIENDLY OWNER & EMPLOYEES, ALSO RECOMMEND THE SILVER TONGUE DEVIL SALOON (GREEN MOUNTAIN FALLS).

Re: “Keg Lounge

I visited this establishment for the firt time on June 4, 2011 with two friends. It was after the wine fest and we wanted to sit, have some drinks, and have some food. One of the persons with us was the DD, so she ordered water. My friend and I recieved our drinks right away, but the water for the DD took 20 minutes. I found the bartender and asked him for the water, explaining it had taken 20 minutes. When the water came it was brown and dirty. My friend (not the DD) asked the bartender for another water, explaining the one he sent was dirty. At that time he pointed at me and said I was "hasseling him" already about the water and refused to replace it. When I asked for the owner he falsely claimed to be the owner (I found out by calling later) and told me to leave "his " bar. He even went so far as to call the police to make me leave, though I was waiting for the DD to come back from the restroom. When I called later to find out who the owner was he answered the first time and told me he wouldn't get into trouble because his mom owned the bar. IDK if mom wants her business run like that, but if this is any indication of how it is going to be run, then I and my associates will frequent another establishment. Love Manitou, very much dislike the Keg. I can't rate the food or value because I was told to leave before it came.
