I wanted to give it 0 starsd but I couldn't..
So we enter and are asked Bar side or Restaurant side, I have no issues with bar side but the Smoke was roilling into the lobby so we opted for restaurant side. I have no issues with smokers I just don't and don't want that smell having an effect on my taste.
So we sit down at 8:13, Yes I time all service. 8:16, 3 workers have passed our table, No biggie we are deciding on appetizers, NO drink order taken we are invisible. 8:20PM employees are passing us by no one even looks at us.... 8:28, this is 15 minutes after we enter the building and are seated by the hostess who is responsible for making sure the server gets to us within 5 minutes (good practice) as we leave she just stands there and smiles like we ate in 15 minutes and says have a good night... I just glared at her. Obviously their bar side is more important thatn their restaurant side as we watched tray after tray of food go over there, Yes I am a Kansas City Food Critic and I will return and expect perfection of a $22 Prime Rib, they had a SIRLOIN on SPECIAL for $17. REALLY a SIRLOIN! obviously the number of bar patrons sustains this restaurant that is pitiful at best. I didn't even get to taste the Sweet Tea, your better bet for a meal is a nice little restaurant around the corner called Roxanne's, I will never put down Roxanne's, it isn't touted to be a "classy" place so you get good comfort food at a great price great atmosphere. Will I return to N&J's YOU BET I WILL!
