Highly disappointing experience for lunch on a Wednesday. They weren t overly busy, so service should have been much better than what I got. My server was unprofessional in every way possible. All other diners were served a tall glass of water with a lemon slice when they were seated....I got none, just What do you want to drink? I also had no silverware or napkin, which I had to ask her for after she had brought my food. She didn t apologize, just said Oh, didn t I give you that? Then, for some unexplained reason, she also brought a second cup of coffee and left it on the table next to the one I had barely started to drink. By the time I was ready for the second cup it was already cold. My reuben sandwich was good but very ordinary - I ve had much better elsewhere. The sandwich and coffee were overpriced, and when I was ready for my check she was nowhere in sight and I had to wait far too long.
One of my favorite places to eat. Inside you’ll find tasty, authentic and a friendly staff. I highly recommend the Chef Alan’s American Bistr – a $30 medley of dishes that can feed 2 or 3 people. If you’ve never tried , this is a great place to start. You won’t be disappointed!
i recommend this place to everyone. went to the sovereign center for jeff foxworthy and wanted to eat close to there so we looked on line and chose this place. the service was excellent, the place was very quaint and comfy and the food was out of this world with awesome prices. time frame for getting there, ordering, eating and paying the bill was all within an hour and they were right on top of things as far as keeping food in front of you at all times. will definitely go there again the next time we happen into reading with smiles on our faces.......
Great Restaurant. Excellent Service, Excellent food. Cannot beat the Chicken Rotisseri meal here for the taste and the price. Also has the best happy hours in town with $1.50 domestics. I love the Monday Buffet as well...it has wings, pizza, sandwiches and other things and you get a beer for like 7 bucks...also its all you can eat.
They now have outdoor dining too. I go here alot and I recommend that you do to!
Absolute horrible service. I was going to have a bridal shower there and it took me 7 days to get someone on the phone so that I could book it. Everytime I called the employees were very rude, unaccomodating and not helpful at all. Then when I was finally able to get in touch with Lisa, the manager (calling for 7 days because she never returned my calls), she rushed through my questions, didn't give me answers to half the questions I had and then put me on hold for 12 minutes! Needless to say I didn't have the shower there.
Visited Chef Alan's early on a Tuesday evening. The dining room was mostly empty. We were seated immediately and I noted that it was exceptionally clean. The menu was pretty standard, nothing out of the ordinary, special or unique. Menu items were well priced and reasonable. Our server took a good amount of time to come to the table initially and was not readily available as our meal progressed. The meal was horribly paced. We waited a very long time for our appetizer to come to the table and then sat there with an empty table for 15 minutes waiting for dinner.
I ordered prime rib, blackened with gorgonzola, medium rare, which was described in their menu as a warm pink center. It arrived completely well done and when I told the waitress, she took my plate back into the kitchen and returned with it saying that when you order it blackened, they cook it, sprinkle it with cajun seasonings and then put it under the broiler, so it comes out well done. I was thinking, if the chef is aware that it's going under the broiler and will continue to cook, why not cook it rare and then it will only be medium rare after the broiling? Seems logical to me! So she returned with another slice of prime rib on the same plate I was originally given, with the same sides which strikes me as not the way things are supposed to go. It should have been an entirely new plate, for sanitation purposes. Also, both steaks looked like they'd been sitting around for a considerable amount of time.
All of the food was served cold.
Very disappointing. We won't be returning.
