I personally ate at Zane's dozens of times. The food was great! I never got sick. I have many friends who ate there. Same story. Great food. Since the owners were the same folks who operate Mason Jar, the quality of the food has been successfully experienced by thousands of Colorado Springs people. The reason Zane's failed is because the owners did not have the money for an expensive downtown location. It sounds to me like snephtar has a high stress personality, and probably made himself sick. The fact that no other food quality complaints were filed should cause snephtar to rethink his position.
The chef is a genius. We enjoyed our dinner very much.
Best cheesy garlic biscuits in the world!
ZANE'S STEAKHOUSE SUCKED- ZANE'S GAVE ME FOOD POISONING (I have the credit card receipt and the Emergency Room documents) AND IS NOW CLOSED. I GUESS THAT SAYS IT ALL. THE FAMOUS HAS EXCELLENT FOOD, ATMOSPHERE AND WAIT STAFF. I think "SmartestMonkey" needs to rethink his/her name because you are truly an effing moron. The meal was "expensive" at Zane's because of the ER co-pay, Einstein.
The real deal neighborhood Italian place to eat...simply, delicious, at the right price!
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.
I've been frequenting the Keg for over 20 years and I have always had a enjoyable time and been treated in a friendly and courteous fashion. It is normally filled with local folks, relaxing and having a good time with friends. The food and beverages are GOOD and there is a nice variety to boot. The Keg is a classic Manitou neighborhood hangout!
Always good food at a good price every time we go there. It's small, get there right at 5PM when they open to get a seat. Their house wine is sold by the full Liter, in a carafe, not the overpriced 750ML bottles found in other eateries.
Some damn fine BBQ.
i don't even know where to begin...this was a bad experience from the start.
My husband received a gift certificate to make our own beer at RMB as a birthday present. We were so excited to learn the process and thought this would be a really fun thing to do. WRONG!!! The man helping us (who never introduced himself the whole entire time) was very intelligent, but no people skills whatsoever. The beer making part took 5 hours. Most of this time we spent outside sitting and waiting, no funny stories, no beer tasting, no educational things to learn about brewing. Just sitting, until the guy came out from the back room once his timer went off to start the next step. It was really awkward. He told us it would be ready in a week. We've never made beer before, so no, we didn't question a weeks time. When my husband called after a week, the same guy that helped us, acted rude and treated him as if he was stupid, and said to call back in 2 more weeks because it wouldn't be ready until then. Whdn he called back, the owner answered, and again, he was rude and made sarcastic remarks as well. My husband was so irritated with the lack of common courtesy he just hung up on him. I would've thought they would have the courtesy to call us when it was ready, but we waited another 2 weeks to call back. Today we went to bottle our beer. Luckily we didn't have to deal with either one of the previous guys, and a nice man helped us bottle our beer, and we were feeling like it was finally a good experience. I capped a beer and noticed foam was seeping out of the bottle, when the man came over and said "oh no! That's a bud light bottle! Those are threaded and they won't seal correctly". Again, we aren't brewers, this information you'd think would've been told to us while brewing so we would know not to bring threaded bottles in. Of course this wasn't the guy who helped us today's fault, but shows the lack of care the first guy has about the customer. Luckily only about 12 of about 50 of our bottles were threaded, so we can down those before they go bad, but i think that's an important thing to tell us.
Yes, RMB has some rockin' beer, but when i want to go to a brewery, i want to feel like i'm surroinded by cool, friendly people, and it was completely opposite. I will never go there again, and i will spread the word to my friends. I think the owner is cocky and rude, and it shows in how is business is run.
we went there for breakfast they still have great shakes but after that it went so down hill. first we got our food well most of it missed one whole platte all together and of coarse it had to be one of the kids. then as i cut into the food mine had a great big long hair. so had to send it back.T...hen we got the platte we were missing and guess what ANOTHER HAIR this time black and long.finshed our meal got our check got no adjustment no im sorry nothing. so i spoke with the owner wow i dont know how that place stays open all he can say is it happens and it was more then likely one of yours. mind you all of my family has light colored hair and the hair we found was jet black . he was so rude . so good luck to anyone who eats there
Please disregard my poor excuse of a review above. The owner solved the issues that we had and he did it with a much better attitude than I did. Go and enjoy pjs bistro and try the bacon and blue cheese burger, it is excellent.
I was perturbed that it took them 25 minutes to make a calzone. I got 2 slices of the macaroni & cheese pizza, which was tasty, but was surprised at how long it took them to bake the calzone. There was nobody ahead of me but I saw 2 take out pizzas (by that I mean I saw someone pick one up and another one that was being delivered). I was disappointed to find that there was a semi decent amount of toppings in it but there was more than 30% of just bread. I've been told it's hit or miss there and in my case, it was a miss.
The server on our Friday night out of October 7th 2011 is a complete jerk that could serve animals better than humans. I say this because his attitude was terrible especially when pointing out that they do no do separate checks! At the end of the meal, which was mediocre at best, he also decided to inform our party of six that separate forms of payment are not allowed as well as separate checks. The server then proceeded to try to rationalize the reasoning behind this with every bs excuse he could come up with including blaming the owner. If the owner would employ individuals that care for the customers and cooks who do not lounge around the bar in their torn up "Blockbuster" shirts then maybe PJ's Bistro would be more than a tourist trap! Also check the date and get with the current forms of payment or go cash only! Also if your going to serve perogies do not turn them into pork enchiladas! If you want a terrible experience head to PJ's.

Canned food? Maybe this negative review came from someone too high to know that they were actually in some other restaurant in the downtown area. My family and I have been going here for over twenty years and we have never, let me say that again, NEVER, had a bad meal. The Rammschnitzel is some of the best I've had anywhere in the world... That includes Germany where I lived for a few years. Edelweiss is a gem that is not matched in the southwest. My suggestion to the individual that didn't like his meal would be to tell the staff...they will bring you anything you want to make you happy. One time I didn't like a beer I had, they brought me 5 other samples to choose from. NO charge. The thousands of votes racked up over the years for this masterpiece should drown out a complaint from someone who is probably a competitor.
If you don't like this restaurant, then that is your problem. The food is great, the German beer is awesome, and the staff is very nice and helpful. And too pricey? I suppose for some people a fifteen dollar main course for dinner and a five doller pint of imported beer is a lot of money, but I found the prices to be very reasonable.
Love love love it!!!. The food is GREAT!! and the customer service even better!!
If you want authentic jamaican cusine, this is the place to be....and if you are in a hurry then maybe you should try Mickey D's, .. because there at the Island Grill they take their time to ensure that the food is prepared fresh and hot. Believe me its NOT poored from cans..and packages onto your plate then heated in a microwave. This food is hand cleaned, prepped, chopped, diced, sitrred and stewed... baby, just the way it should be!! And the people, Owners, chefs, servers they all are kind freindly and sincere about pleasing their patrons. If they are open 6 days a week im there at least 3-4 of those days. Keep up the good work guys..please don't change.
Much love and support from Spencers Hair Rescue & Styles

Awesome food and the best horchata I have ever had!
The owner is extremely friendly. They have relocated and are having a grand re-opening this weeked 9/29/2011-10/2/2011. Their new location is 4737 N. Academy near the Flintridge and Academy intersection.
We visited mid-week and enjoyed a sampler platter with meat pies, jerk shrimp, and codfish balls. They were all very good, served hot and fresh. We had jerk pork and brown stew jerk pork as our main dishes. The cornbread was delicious - a non-standard recipe that's almost good enough to be dessert. The home-made jam spread on top was a winner. We ordered a bunch of food to try it all and did end up taking some of our jerked pork dishes home - of course they were delicious the next day, too. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Management, the chef, another chef, and the wait staff all checked by to see how everything was. We really enjoyed our meal and will go back again!
