    Early Dinner. Entree was delivered with the starter (told Kitchen just does that). They actually came before the first beer was delivered (about 10 minutes wait). Two other tables were dining at this early time, so I couldn't understand my server forgetting me. Food about dinner style (onion soup and fish and chips).

    A $10 brunch with great food? Excellent choice. Food was hot and fresh. Service was friendly. What more can you ask for. Brunch is 10 to 3 instead of 2 like most places, excellent. Omelette station was AWESOME. The omelette maker is the friendliest I've ever met. I know that sounds strange. LOL. Pancakes, French toast (delicious), bacon, sausage (OMG), home fries, eggs, carving station w/roast beef and turkey, a little salad stuff, 4 hot entrees including mac and cheese and meatballs, and desserts.

    New menu seems smaller than the previous one? Really not going to find too many healthy options here either. Food overall was pretty good - though the Apple Walnut salad had a strange BBQ flavor to it for some reason. Fish & chips were pretty good!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 1/12/2014
    This is a great restaurant for sports fans who love good food. Always my favorite place to go to watch a game AND get a great meal. Still good food, but was a little disappointed that they changed the menu. The main reason I loved this place was because it had more than just 'sports bar' food. Went from a 6-7 page menu to one sheet back and front. Again, the food that's on it is still delicious, and on the plus side they lowered the prices, just wish they left a few more of the appetizers and chicken dishes on the menu.

    petelabVIP
    Dined on 3/31/2013
    When you mention a sports bar, most think of a dark, crowded place dominated by TV screens and patrons enjoying pitchers of beer while cheering/jeering whatever game is on. Alstarz, despite the bad spelling of the name, offers something much nicer - larger, more open, and more welcoming. Their Sunday brunch buffets are something special. Lots of food of top quality (remember, it IS a Mastoris venture), displayed appealingly throughout the bar area, and augmented by two hot serving stations (carving station and omelettes). Everything is great, and it's a terrific value at $22.95 a person! My only complaint is with service. I know that buffets aren't the best time for tips and there isn't much to do, but the servers need to show more energy.

    Always a consistant place to go for good bar food and watching a game. The service was a little slow, but we were the crowded bar area. When we have sat in the main dining area things are usually much faster. We were watching a game, so we weren't in any hurry. The crowd age clearly shifts to a younger set when the DJ comes on a 10 - 10:30. If you like to dance (a lot of hip hop these days) a good place for that too.

    The reviews should start getting better, the outdoor section is second to none, it is the best place to watch a football game outside by far. They seem to have done an overhaul, with Mastori's owning the place the food is real good...When they were trying to be a night club too the service, food and overall feel was lacking. I'm sure liquor sales were great though.

    Food was good. Server was good, but service was poor. Our diets are gluten-free. This restaurant was selected because it was stated that they were GF-friendly, but the staff was not well informed, and there was no GF menu or suggestions the server could give us. Our server asked if we would like the chef to come speak to us, which we did, but he never came. Finally a manager came over, who did seem to have some GF knowledge, but this was after being seated for about 30 minutes. Finally we ordered (with some confidence since the manager seemed to know what he was talking about), and after a long wait our salad came out as pasta, but quickly got corrected, and then our food arrived shortly after that. Overall WAY too long of a wait!!

    Went for the Mother's Day Buffet. We barely found a parking spot, the place was crowded, and lines were long. Once we finally got our 1 and only plate, the food was very good. We were stuffed! Bummed we didn't get to experience the other offerings beside breakfast, but was overall happy with our experience.

    This visit was for Easter Brunch, so things were different from what I've encountered during a "normal" stop. The place was packed, but the staff kept things moving along very nicely, minimizing waiting times and operating the entire event smoothly. Kudos to them for that! The food choices on the Brunch Buffet were astounding - if you were so inclined, you could make trips to fulfill your needs for breakfast, lunch, and dinner separately! Everything was well-prepared and delicious, and an excellent value. This will be a definite return in the future.

    The menu is extensive-there's something good for everyone. We went during the football play-offs, so the atmosphere was very charged and did get loud at times, but that's exactly why we went. Our party of 6 had a great time eating quite a variety of wonderful appetizers before continuing on to dinner. We had all been there a few times before and can honestly say we have NEVER been disappointed in the food. If we were forced to say something negative, the only thing would be that the service this time wasn't as good as usual. Our server seemed to be only one of three in the entire restaurant and didn't get back to our table as often as we would have liked, but in fairness to him, he was running around and working quite hard.

    The appetizers, drinks and desserts were outstanding. The menu is diverse. Portions were large. The dinners were very good. The menu and portions are not at all similar to Mastoris, so those going there expecting a sports bar version of that restaurant will be disappointed. We had dinner during a NFL playoff game, so it was a bit loud at times, but still quiet enough for conversation. After 10 PM on that Saturday night, the restaurant transformed into more of a bar/nightclub scene, complete with DJ, bouncers and a line at the door.

    We were there for New Years Eve. The dinner was absolutely fabulous. The chef came to our table several times to check on us, and because we moved to a different table so breakfast could be set up after the new year, he sent an after dinner drink to our table. Wonderful food, excellent service. The only problem was when the party and dancing started, the DJ didn't take requests and played the same type of music all night.
