It's too bad this placed closed. It was like Extreme Bargains (also closed). The only discount grocery store in Springs is Cheapies on Fillmore. It's a nice upgrade. They have produce, bulk bins and a lot of private label foods. It's become our families weekly stop before going to the regular grocery store.
They seem to know what they are doing - but it is a very expensive place.
The food quality and the service is just not holding up to history of this place. People mention the wine list, but in this day and age, I can have any bottle of wine I want dropped at my door for 1/3 the price. If I'm going to pay the premium for the food and wine, I expect good service. Unfortunately, I believe the blue star has lost the edge in the service arena.
More of a talk station than a news station, but they do have the best radio newscasts in the area. KRDO and ABC News go a lot better together than KVOR and ABC.
Good conservative lineup, but below average local news coverage (compared to KRCC and KRDO). And does the Springs really need 2 ABC News radio stations?
What can ah say.
It would be awesome if they could hire an actual busperson who would actually clean the tables with disinfectant - I try not to think about when I eat there. Yuk.
Can be charming, depending on who's there and who is playing in the band. Incredible players like Wayne Wilkenson on guitar are there on occasion, but then some wannabees always seem to show up. The most forgetable-the highly over-rated Bruce Pennington on piano.....ugh..... Seriously, if I hear another cliche' "Liberace"-like scale run from the keys i'll jump out a window. As long as there is a variety rotation in play, this place is worth checking out... but beware the afor mentioned lounge lizard act.
Nice sports bar, food is good and the staff is friendly
A new bar and a decent one at that. They have a friendly staff, I've been personally greeted by the owners every time I've walked in, and a pleasant atmosphere. Thursday nights they offer karaoke and ladies night, Friday nights are live local bands, and Saturday nights are live comedy, with no cover charge any night. They have one pool table that's a dollar a game or 3 games for two dollars. Either way, it's more expensive per game than most other bars in town, so if you're just looking for some place to play pool look elsewhere. They have daily lunch specials and happy hour runs from 4-6 pm. It's not a Coors friendly bar, they don't have it on tap and their Bud/Coors bottle prices are the same as their Bud/Bud Light pint drafts. As it's a new bar, not much clientele yet, but that could change as it becomes more known.
Overall a decent bar, but still not as good as other bars in town that offer more selection, cheaper prices, and the same friendly atmosphere.
With so many members, it is way past time to put in a decent swimming pool for real swimmers, those of us who want to swim laps in regulation size and temperatures! We joined with the understanding that the pool was "coming soon"! It has been 3 years!!!
Moneymoo that's to bad. I've been a patron for 20+ also and I must say I've waited for the day for Jose to serve me a bad meal (but they've been consistent over those 20). Not sure why people are blasting the food, you know it's not authentic before you come (but it is consistently good). Good, not necessarily authentic, southwestern food (not that tex-mex garbage).
I thought the shrimp was outstanding. The overall atmosphere was not.
Had breakfast in the dining room recently. This is allegedly a 4 diamond place, but the floor was dirty (food crumbs), the cream was old and curdled in the coffee, the service was slow and inattentive, but the food was good. It will be interesting to see if they hold on to all of their diamonds.
It smelled weird and the live music was very late getting started.
I guess it would be somewhat insensitive to say that 15C is really smoky, but it is, even when it's not on fire and just open for business. But it's still really cool - great atmosphere.
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!
Average place. Noisy. Young, drinking crowd.
Lounge staff and atmosphere were terrific as were the mixed drinks we got from the bar. Too bad I can't say the same about the "fancy" Dining room staff. Both menus are wonderful and the wine selection is second to none. Not so sure I like that the menu in the Dining room changes so frequently. But their desserts are to die for.
bar staff is terrible, poor selection of drinks. I asked several of the girls there for a Blue Hawaiian and all I got was a blank stare. Drink somewhere else and then enjoy your buzz on the rooftop patio.
