I ate at RB's at someone else's insistence and was unsurprised at how little I enjoyed it. The bar was nice, but beyond that I didn't eat anything that made me ever want to go back. It was so forgettable that the only thing I remember is: don't bother going back.
Clearly the owner spends far too much time worrying about parking enforcement and too little time on the kitchen. Overpriced, under-tasty, and actually somehow the views aren't even that great. Doesn't the same person/group own Red's and RB's? What's with the crazy parking situation.
"RickFriday" rides again...I smell a rat, or a mole.
Went on possibly the worst day ever--Valentine's Day. Crowded, noisy, as we expected it would be, but tolerable. Food was good, but not stellar. Waitress was friendly but REALLY pushing hard to pad the (already expensive) tab. Might go again, in the future, maybe for lunch to see if we just originally picked the worst possible day to go!
We went to Halls for half price burger Sunday. First of all, the burger was decent but was cooked all the way through when we had asked for medium-rare. The fries were actually good, however. The problem I had with this place is that they almost made us feel bad for ordering the burger. Why have half-priced burger day when you are going to make your customers feel bad for ordering just that? We were repeatedly asked if we were "sure" that's what we wanted. We went there specifically for a trial run since the menu is normally very pricey. This was the opportunity to test the waters without having an outrageous bill. Between the staff's immaturity and the just-ok burger, we will not return. I understand that Hall's may have great steaks, but please try to tone down the attitude.
The meal started off great, our server was friendly and efficient. Everyone was happy with their meals, until towards the end, when we noticed some dark specs at the bottom of the fries. The waitress told us that the fries are cooked with bacon, and they need to update the dinner menu. Unfortunately, 2 of my dining companions do not eat pork. Thanks for allowing us to pay (full price) for you to make us sick.
The location is excellent, the atmosphere very pleasant, and the service OK. But the food...you've got to be kidding me. My wife had the chicken parm and I had the veal parm. The chicken breast was tough with a heavy, overcooked tasteless breading. The veal was not meat, but just a processed veal patty..unacceptable for $18..this meal can be purchased for much less in the frozen food section at Harris Teeter. Suggest leaving this one for the tourists.
