    Waiter fun but lines a bit too practiced and forced. All fried food was over cooked and fries tasted like fish. 5 people -no apps -no dessert -2 beers -5 fried entrees $140.00??? Not that much fun and very loud. Also, menu on board & having to rely on waiter for descriptions- frustrating!!! Especially when u have any dietary need. Will not go back except maybe to drink with friends after work at bar. Maybe😕

    I like Dick's the only other one Ive been to is the one in TN. However, the food is overly priced for what it is. Its decent food, don't get me wrong, however the prices are a little much. You really are paying for the experience which is worth it if you are in a big group and looking to have a fun dining experience.

    We went here for my sister's bday & my grandma's bday. We had a large group which included kids. We had been to the Dick's Last Resort in Gatlinburg with my kids & my daughter who is 6 was traumatized. She didn't want to go to dinner with my family on this night because she said she hated it & was in tears. When we got to the restaurant they were made aware of her fear & unwillingness to be there. The hostess & our waiter (Chauncy) were both amazing. They gave her a balloon, gave her a hat that pretty much made her day & by the end of the night she was following our waiter around as his shadow. Our family had such an amazing time that I totally forgot that I had brought a cake and it was in the fridge. It was that much fun!

    Shocked at the poor quality of the food! Everything from the Fry'd pickle chips (the breading was dry and falling off everywhere) to the Fish & Chips (they looked great, but when you bit into them, you could see the grease pour out...tasted like I was eating a mouth of breaded cooking oil) to the Crab Legs - the most expensive dish on the menu turned out to the the most disappointing (I can get twice as much and twice the quality of crab legs from Kroger for a third of the price)...While the "Dick's" experience had potential for a fun night, the disappointing food led the evening in a different direction - out the door without looking back!

    We had a group of 7 and went to Dicks Last Resort for a girls night/birthday. Our server was Nichole. She was HILARIOUS!They all played the part they are supposed to play but did not over do it.Food was great. I don't think they are terribly overpriced. Typical prices for that type of place on the levee. Lunch prices are much lower with most items being under $10 so if your looking for something a little lighter and lower that would be the time to go.

    Not for the sensitive person. Would not recommend for groups smaller than 4, and really it would be better for 8 to 12. It may help to be a little drunk. it also depends on your server, It is loud in there and most server talk so fast you can not here them. So you find yourself asking "what was that?" a lot. Really it is a place where a server can pay little to no attention to you and call it entertainment.

    We were in a party of 6 and all 6 were very disappointed in their food. Received no small plates for appetizers to share just had to keep passing the baskets. Salmon (smelly)/fries and fish/chips served in buckets with no additional plate. Was told the jalapeno chicken would only be hot if you ate the jalapeno, was too spicy. Rib eye steak dinner was warm at best and could hardly cut the meat. $3.99 side salad was very small. $93.00 for 2 people and the bloody mary and apple pie being the highlight on the receipt will not prompt me to return to Dick's Last Resort in Newport KY.

    My daughter went with her friends for her birthday. They are 14 year olds. They said the food was good but the waiter made them get their own drinks. Being that this was Dick's Last Resort that wasn't too surprising and they thought it was funny. They had nachos and the chicken bites and said they were good. They had a great time and liked their waiter.

    Our food was extremely late. People that arrived after us had ate in left already. At first, I thought maybe this was "Dick's" thing to do. My steak arrived completely over done, a knife couldn't even cut it!! The waitress said the manager was going to come over and speak with us. He never did no apologize but we did get 25% off. The kids really did enjoy the atmosphere.

    I enjoyed the difference in atmospheres compared to a normal restaurant, subsequently I was disappointed in the way they attempt to be dicks. The servers, specifically the bartenders, more so give off a vibe that says "we don't actually want you here- how rude can I be before you decide to leave?" Which makes it hard to have fun.

    Yes, there's a concept here, and the waitstaff enthusiastically works that angle. It makes for entertainment, and that's great. My group shared many laughs. However, it was so incredibly loud we were literally shouting. Food was simply not good. Canned corn, instant potatoes, cold/tough/reheated fried food, bland/cold rice, chewy, overdone steak, and prices you'd expect at a decent semi-upscale restaurant. It was almost $30 for a shrimp platter and a hard cider. The one edible thing on my plate was the shrimp cocktail. The fried pieces had clearly been reheated, and grilled pieces were cold hockey pucks. I'm almost proud that we can now support a true tourist trap in our fair city, but I won't be bringing out of towners here anytime soon.

    While the "service with sarcasm" is a fun idea... People still are coming in for a good meal. Been there twice and food was "Less than Desirable" both times. Tried Lunch and Dinner = Over $100+ for party of four (2 Adults 2 Kids) each time = Not a good value.

    We had the dolly and ribs n wings, it was horrible and that's sad that I can't find anything good to say about it, the service was great kinda, but when I told the waitress it was side were cold and the wings were greasy I was told so what, eat it. It wasn't a joke. We spent 138.00 and that was no drinks for 3 adults and a teen. So not worth it

    Dined here for the first time for a Bachelorette Party. It was a fun dining experience. Our server, Epic, was hilarious and fun. We went fairly early for dinner which allowed our table a lot of attention which I liked for the fun aspect of it. The one complaint I did have was that we had to use paper, literal paper, as plates for our appetizers. But that's a complaint from a sanitary standpoint for myself. I will definitely be back!

    The service was great very entertaining, but the food was only so so. We ordered a couple of southwestern chicken salads and they were awful. He said nobody cares. Funny yes butttt should have done something to make it right. The rest of the food was ok not fabulous but we definitely went for the fun.

    The arrogant schtick doesn't add o the experience. It's annoying and the cost is not in line with the experience. May be good for tourists that don't know better but there are many quality places to choose from on both sides of the river. It is certainly different...but is different always better? Sarcasm and arrogance is not a point of difference for a medium to high priced restaurant.

    Went to the Dicks in Chicago 20 years ago...Once should have been enough but went to the one in Newport Ky at the suggestion of my daughter who had not been. Food mediocre at best. Guess it is meant for more of a rowdy drinking crowd. Waitress K-10 was best part of the evening. I would have chalked up the dinner experience as to my being too old for such a place but to be honest my 30 something kids said they would not go back either.

    If you like over priced sports bar food, bad service and people yelling accross the room at you then this is the place for you. Unfortunately it's not the place I would choose to dine. After being seated the waiter makes his way over and proceeds with his shtick. Which apparently is being as rude as possible...strike one. The menu is nothing but over priced bar food...strike two. The waiter comes back throws the place mats in front of us and actually hits my daughter (not a child) in the face with it. Then cracks a joke about getting a paper cut. Strike three...we walk.
