Food was great prices where not so great, but i guess they need them prices to be high to stay open, this is a great place to take a girl on a date or even lunch, Servise is spectacular and so is the food, o ya the portions are a bit skimpy, wine was a bit over priced as well
When one finds them self in Elk River Minnesota you are offered chain restaurants en mass. Find a small wine bar with an eclectic, yet simply elegant menu? Unlikely.. Unless you wonder down the road to POUR. Flavor I would put up against some of the best in the business. Thoughtful and delicate with out pretense. Staff and owner are friendly and accommodating. Wine selection is on the small side but well chosen. There is a retail wine shop next door so grab some to go.. My week long trips up here include at least 2 nights of meals here! Stop here. Now. You won't regret it.
Shoutout to the owner Phil for stopping by our table and saying HI! Nice guy!! We had just taken family photos and now it's time for a late birthday dinner celebration for my sister in law. The restaurant is nice... However we were seated at a high table with a high chair for my newphew, which considering the high table we were sitting at, didnt' do much for lil' John since the "high chair" didn't reach the top of the table. He was okay though. still got fed. The food was good though. Hunnie Bunnie had the mac n' cheese which was with penne noodles of something and it was quite tasty! I had some kind of tomato pasta something or other with the grilled chicken option and it was tasty as well! I believe my dad enjoyed his bacon burger once they got it cooked right for him and everyone else seemed to enjoy their dinner as well. Nice local spot to enjoy for sure!
I like this Dennys better than other ones nearby. The service is better and the restaurant itself is cleaner. We have always enjoyed the food. It is not fabulous, but filling and tasty. We have come at many different times and have always been happy with our choice. They have great Groupon deals, too and you can sign up for their club, too.
I used to like to stop in for late breakfast and it had been awhile. Over ten minutes invisible, no server, at about fifteen minutes, it's time to leave. Not busy, and have three servers chatting on the kitchen. This is the second time I've walked out for the same thing. I believe in second chances, but no thirds.
I wish I knew the name of our server. A young lady working and going to college. Very friendly, thorough and prompt. Good food as always. Watch for Groupon deals here!
We (group of four adults) went to Cowboy Jack's on a Saturday night around 7:30 pm. There was a 30 minute wait - there really is not a lot of seating inside. The atmosphere was casual and the background music was at a comfortable level so it was easy to have a conversation. There were a number of families with younger children eating dinner. We were seated at a table with three chairs - had to request a fourth chair. The waitress was prompt and friendly. One of our friends, upon the recommendation of our server, ordered the tater tot hot dish - he said it was wonderful. I ordered the broiled walleye - sadly, it was terrible. It had a strong "fishy" taste - I know, I know ... it is fish, but this was so bad I could not eat it. The manager was very professional and handled the circumstance in a more-than-fair manner. I ordered a hamburger instead. A gentleman playing acoustic guitar filled the bar with various genres of music - mainstream enough for any crowd. The atmosphere was pleasant; the service was good; but the food (at least the walleye) was not palatable. The hamburger was ok. I would come back for live music and drinks, but would probably eat dinner elsewhere.
My wife and I tried Cowboy Jacks on a Thursday afternoon around 1:00 pm and was very disappointed by the poor service. The hostess did sit us down quickly but that we the only part that was good customer service. We waited for ten minutes and nobody came to check on us or take any orders. So, I got up to find the hostess. I told her that we were waiting for over ten minutes and did not get service. She did not respond and then we left the restaurant upset by the lack of service and response. Maybe their late night service is better but I am usually in bed by 10:00 pm.
This place just opened and it meets my expectations of what the "Cowboy" restaurants/bars are known for: country-like feel, peanut shells on the floor, lots of flat screen TV's, great selection of happy hour drinks/appetizers, (4-6p and after 9p $2 beers and half price apps) and a friendly staff to boot. Went for the first time with a girlfriend on a Friday night. Arrived around 8p and the place was PACKED--hour and a half wait for a table for two. We ended up just grabbing a spot at the bar which worked out just fine--ordered some beers and apps---REALLY wish they had a wider selection of tap beers, (not even honey weiss!) The "older" crowd was gone by 10p. Definitely not as packed. Live band started around 9p. Although the music was WAY TOO LOUD it was still a fun time. Lots of people dancing, was a pretty fun time. Friendly servers, bar staff, and bouncers.
