Re: “Old Chicago - Academy

Who's got balls big enough to serve a hot dog for $10 by calling it a Chicago Dog, then serve it without sport peppers? OC.

Still a favorite place of mine, but their recent "Chicago-inspired Classics" spring menu has felt like a failure in both concept and execution.

The $16.99 10oz loin steak is acceptable but not inspiring and not a great value. The $9.99 Chicago Dog is a straight ripoff.

Re: “Maggie Mae's Restaurant & Pub

This place was awful!!! The food was bland, flavorless and may have been out of date. Half the menu was whited out and they had a sign up that said they were unable to get good produce. Yuck! save yourself the trip.

Re: “The Cow Pub & Grill

Me and my wife are really excited about this place. We have gone many times now and have enjoyed great service and a wonderful atmosphere. We have met new friends every time we have gone in. The bar and restaurant are open and the mood seems to attract a great crowd of people. It is hard to be alone at this place.

Now let’s talk food. My wife has always said that the best way to tell if the food is good is to try the appetizers. We tried the sampler platter. We were pleased with the selection and the taste was great. We have also tried the Wings, and they do not come by the piece. You get a whole pound! We tried the hot, but plan to try the other flavors soon. Wow, and the Fries with chili and cheese were great.

Me, I think the best way to check out a place is to try the Cheeseburger. Well the bread, meat and the cheese were a delight! My wife enjoyed her Green Chili and all was well in the world. The guy we sat next to had ribs and boy did they look good. Can’t wait.

The Beer, Cold Cold Cold (Nuff said). The mixed drinks are mixed just right. The Mixer complements the alcohol, the way it should be.

So, if you need a place to relax, unwind and enjoy good company and eats, and of course a good drink, then stop by the HOLY COW. The name says it all.

Re: “Oscar's Tejon Street

I thought the shrimp was outstanding. The overall atmosphere was not.

Re: “Jack Quinn Irish Alehouse & Pub

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.

Re: “McCabe's Tavern

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.

Re: “Jack Quinn Irish Alehouse & Pub

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!

Re: “Jack Quinn Irish Alehouse & Pub

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!

Re: “Oscar's Tejon Street

@ 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.

One of the best bands around! Jake has his own style, plays great music and puts on one hell of a show. Go Jake!

Re: “Back East Bar & Grill

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.

Re: “Back East Bar & Grill

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.

Re: “O'Malley's Steak Pub

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!!

Re: “Oscar's Tejon Street

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.

Re: “Oscar's Tejon Street

@ 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!
