Default Evan's Prarie 1/17/20-

Tried for dinner last Friday 5m. Service good , Food really badly prepared. I had Chicken Parmesan with Fettuccini. Fettuccini sticky , stuck in an impervious ball. Marinara skimpy and tasteless. Chicken very dry. Bread so stale as to not be edible. Two others had Brisket sandwiches that were dry and tasteless. Another had Salmon sandwich wich was nearly raw. Did not make a scene but, informed waitress after paying that we were extremely displease with what came from the kitchen and would not be disposed to eat there again.

Did you talk to the manager? We have had meals there many times with no problems like the ones described.

Microwave must have had a bad timer and the boil in the bag pot was not boiling--hard to keep things right, during high season

We had to send an entree back @ the Bonefish on Sat, won't be back in the near future

Why dump on the server, they have absolutely no control over the operation of the restaurant. If the food was so bad you should have not eaten it and called for the manager. That is the only person who can rectify the problem and I wouldn't pay for a meal poorly prepared meal.

No need to call any mgr, send the entree back--soo simple--no need to settle for crap- send it back-its not rocket science to prepare a Sysco meal !!!!

Won't be long if everyone keeps their promise not to frequent restaurants

Dinning will once again become tolerable

We were also at Bonefish Saturday .. Both of us had an outstanding meal (haddock and mahi), along with an interesting Old Fashioned and a marvelous bananas foster. It was very crowded, but service was also great. Mahi was prepared much better than the Mahi I've had at Bluefin.

Why do people (like you) feel the need to blast the business online. How about talking to the manager to help resolve your issues?

Our experience is meals are hit and miss at all TV CC. It may have been a better option if you dealt with the manager on the problem at the time of delivery rather that wait until you paid. After you've consumed the meal, there's no evidence of your complaint, and the waitress is mostly powerless to do anything about it.

the Admiral had the lobster imperial , it was kept under the warmer too long and was dried out, my sea bass was perfect, the Bonefish replaced her dish and removed the charge from the bill, during high season all staff is over burdened, in all restaurants and its up to you to not settle--

Last time I had a drink at Evans Prairie at the bar, I experienced something that made me never want to go to that place again. I ordered a martini with olives. In the preparation for the drink, the bartender engaged in spearing the olives for my drink. This is what she did. She took the spear and laid the olives on the service mat where bar servers would place their trays to pick up drinks. The mat in most bars is soaking wet with spilled drinks, debris from cleaning clothes and other unmentionables. By placing the olives on the service mat, she gained the leverage to spear the olives by just holding them gently with her fingers. So, she managed to place the three speared olives into my martini. I managed to avoid drinking the martini. Not everything requires the assistance of a manager....especially my feet as I left the establishment...never to return!

Please post places to eat that are good. I’ve been going to TV for years and always find it difficult to go out to eat. Most places are old, run down and not kept clean. Country clubs are definitely not gourmet eating. I did notice Arnold Palmer redid their chairs, almost all were rip and torn for some time. Same restaurants in every square and one is no better than the other. You would think during the summer slow time a major cleanup would take place. Looking for good food, clean atmosphere, any help would be appreciated!
