This place is awesome!! Feels like home back in WI! Food is great and customers and staff are friendly and the menu is very reasonable! Huge bang for your buck! Go Pack!!!!
Killer $1 tacos every Tuesday!
I thought the shrimp was outstanding. The overall atmosphere was not.
Jack Quinn's is great Most of the time. The food is pretty consistently good. The Sunday brunch there is the best! I used to go every week for the Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz, but got frustrated with the sound quality of the speakers (only hearing every 3rd word during a quiz is annoying) and stopped going. I like their live music, but its always too loud for the space they are in. If they get the speaker system fixed they would definitely be a 5 star place.
The first time I went there the food, drinks and service were amazing. That was over a year ago and since then it has gone progressively downhill. The waitresses get orders wrong and bring cold food. You are lucky if you see one of the waitresses every hour or so. I am not going back again.
The last time some friends and I went here the serves was the worst! We sat down and waited for a wait person. The place wasn’t very crowded. We sat and waited and waited. Finally I got up and ordered drinks at the bar. Two of the people I was with got up and went across the street and ate at Jimmy John’s. I asked a waiter walking by for help and he said it wasn’t his area. Finally a women came by to wait on us, my friend said that would be nice because we had been waiting for some time. She said that wasn’t possible! ? Our other friends returned from Jimmy John’s just as we were given menus. We ordered and wait a while for our food. We were not offered another drink. I asked to talk to the manager and was told by the first waiter he was busy. We paid and walked out the front door. We were than told by someone else that the manager was standing out front. I told him of our experience, to which he said that we should of talked to him. He then told me that someone had said that I had yield at one of the waitress, which is pure fiction, and if I had why didn’t he intervene at that point? My friends and I are all in our 40’s and 50’s, one is an ex police officer. I have enjoyed many and evening at Quinns, and have played music there before. I and my friends will not be coming back!
You have to be careful here. 95% of the time the food is unbeatable, and then there is the other 5%. My favorite dishes there are the fish and chips, the bangers and mash, and sheppard's pie.
I have been going there for around 5 years now, and almost always order one of my 3 favorites. It's ususally great, BUT... a couple times a year it's horrible (and that's an understatement!) The last time I was there I ordered the Shppard's pie. It came with a well done top and the gravy was so thin and overpowered with rosemary it was disusting. Now the waitstaff and manager were all over it trying to make it better. I'll definately give them that. The second try at the pie was even worse than the first. I fianlly had to change to the bangers and mash which was rushed (as by the time I got it my wife had already finished her meal) was not properly cooked. I walked... and have not returned.
The one thing you NEVER do in a restaurant is serve undercooked pork (or chicken for that matter).
So, unless they've corrected the problem, which is sporadic, your taking the quality of your evening, and your health, in your hands!
Been going there for years and never had a bad meal. Great hamburgers and drinks. Very cool interior!
@ Ishhod, you are a stand up person. I too do not support his establishments since that inappropriate beating.
@ restless native, if you were beaten senseless and the attacker was not disciplined, wouldn't you call and want to yell about it! I know I would!!! I would yell to the world about it. It is wrong and unjust.
The curry chicken salad sandwich and the Reuben are also mighty mighty tasty!
It's the neighborhood pub and then some! FANTASTIC staff and great clients! Everything on the menu is terrific; the music is always good - just feels like home with lots of friends!
One of the best bands around! Jake has his own style, plays great music and puts on one hell of a show. Go Jake!
Great food! Great live music! And defintely the best staff in town. Fun and relaxing place to come hang out. The Cheers bar on the north end of town.
Have been here several times and agree with most of the comments - GREAT staff, good food and drinks, but yes, it can get a bit noisy.
This is a casual, fun place to go. The wings are the best I've had since leaving the east coast... The beer prices are great - $3 for a 16oz. fat tire is their regular price!!
Stopped in to Oscar's for a late lunch last week and a Black and Blue Burger with home fries. It was darn near a 10! One of my favorite places to stop when Im downtown.
@ Ishhod -- get the real story about the "physical altercation" before repeating your slander. Granted I'm a fan of Oscar's and I've gotten the full story from Phil (the "OWNER") and I've been at the bar when the "female" in question has called well intoxicated to scream at the employees. Get some facts behind that story. Oscar's rocks -- go for the killer burger!
Always good! We stop in every week.
I won't eat there especially since the well mannered OWNER was involved in a physical altercation with a female customer. And the employees were too afraid for their jobs to speak against him.
Love the atmosphere. Very Southern. Food is pretty good. Great drink specials and occasional live music. Shrimp poboys and oysters is what I recommend
