Diner Reviews
  • "The food had good flavor but was not very hot, especially considering there were only 3 tables filled at the time. I was a little disappointed for the cost. We went for the dine KC and they didn't bother to offer the special so we ended up spending $100 instead of $60. The whiskey was good and the food had good flavor."

  • "Second visit to Maker's Mark. Steaks are great and savory. Lobster tail was sweet and tender. Libations were of the highest quality. We travel three hours to get here. High end steak house without the high end prices."

  • "Went for a business meal...would be a better location for meeting friends. Just too loud. Steaks were great!"

  • "Food was good, staff friendly, we just thought the decor was not what we thought a "Bourbon House" would look like. Snobby comment, huh?"
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "The service was Awesome. the only complaint we had was the Ceaser Salad wasn't very good, Dressing like it was watered down. And the Asparagus was not cooked al the way. The rest of the Food was of Great Quality."

  • "My wife and I went here on a Saturday and had a great time. The food is smaller portions but the flavors were amazing! Grace was our server and she was very sweet and attentive. The hostess(Bree) was the star of the night. She helped us out a lot with recommendations for fun bars around power and light. When my wife lost her ring at the restaurant we told Bree to give us a call if they found it. We were a block away from the restaurant when she came running over to us with my wife's ring! Now that's great service! Thank you for the fantastic night Makers Mark!"

  • "My husband and I were in KC for a quick trip. We are Maker's Mark ambassadors and were excited to try the food at this location (we've been to the Louisville location also for drinks). Everything was good. We had Caesar salads - not my favorite, but good. Since they had run out of salmon, we had steaks Oscar style - he had the KC strip and I had the sirloin. Mine was cooked perfectly medium, his was also medium - however he had ordered medium well (more well). The sides were very yummy and the crab meat was delicious. The only thing I would have liked to see would be a larger list of cocktails and bourbons by flights. I also thought I'd see Maker's Mark used more prominently in the menu for food and drinks."

  • "we had reservations on a busy concert night. They were not able to seat us until well after our reservation time, service was slow, and food cool to tepid instead of hot. They were overwhelmed but controlled the reservations so they should not have been."

  • "My reservation was for 615P. My boss arrived before 615P & was told we could not be seated until our entire party arrived, which was not stated on Open Table. Once our clients arrived at about 630P, it took another 15 mins before we were seated. They put us outside, where it was extremely loud & the chairs were uncomfortable. It took over an hour to get our food and we were late to the Paul McCartney concert as a result, which was very disappointing to my boss & our clients who are prominent business owners in KC. They also tried to deliver the wrong food and drinks to our table at least 3 times. Our waitress was nice & the food was good. I only wish we had more than 10 mins to eat it before we had to leave for the show."

  • "Very nice experience. Food was excellent, server was friendly and attentive, restaurant has a nice atmosphere. We had a booth which had broken down benches, so our chests were table high. Not good. Will gladly go back, but will request a table."

  • "Our party of four had a fantastic dinner on 6/28/14. The women raved about the Mint Juleps, and you can't go wrong with the house label bourbon on the rocks. The Maker's Mark Charcuterie Board was a perfect prelude to our superb entree course. The wine list is shorter than comparable restaurants, but the variety of offerings easily pairs with the food menu. We topped off our meal with delicious desserts and excellent coffee. Our server, and all the restaurant staff, were friendly and very attentive from start to finish."

  • "We went to Maker's Mark for half-price steak night, and because my partner is a huge MM fan. His steak was quite good, and the accompanying sides were decent (small portions of mashed potatoes and green beans). I had a salad, which was fresh but overdressed, and a flat bread that was good, but uninspired. What made the evening, though, was the excellent service. Our server, Grace, was professional, attentive and friendly. Both she and another server (whose name I didn't catch) were happy to chat with us about visiting Kansas City, where to get the best barbecue, etc. We were there fairly early on a weeknight--I can imagine that this place (and the rest of the Power & Light District) is hopping on weekends."

  • "I stopped here for a burger before a concert. It was just so-so. It was supposed to come with bacon, which I didn't find until nearly my last bite. It was more tasty with the bacon. The fries were cold and not fresh. I did not have time for them to re-do my meal so I didn't ask. The waitress was nice."

  • "The steak my wife ordered was fantastic. The calamari was awesome. My crab cake sandwich however was dry and lacking. Overall. Great experience"

  • "This was our first time dining here and I think the first thing that was different than what I expected was the warmth of the environment. It is very nice and comfortable here, I guess I just expected a warmer ambiance. Food was great although it did get a little cold towards the end. Service from our waitress was great, she was very easy to work with. They were out of a couple of the bourbons we wanted to try which was kind of a bummer. Desert was good but didn't have a ton of flavor."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The food was delicious service is terrible. It took 30 minutes to get seated after a reservation time another 10 minutes to get anybody take our drink order. Evidently our waitress forgot how to smile and be friendly. However the food was delicious steak was awesome and very good dessert. "

  • "made reservations, but they didn't give preference to people who made reservations. Was going to a concert, finally had to tell them if they couldn't seat us we would have to leave. Sat us in private dining room and had one of the bartenders wait our table. The young lady did an excellent job, while also maintaining her bartending duties. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Reservation - 6 months prior for May 31 2014 at 6:15. Arrived a little early, told wait was 5-10 minutes. We waited in the bar. At the bar for extended period had to ask a bartender for service. Wait now for over 20 min. Checked status and was told table would be ready shortly. Twenty minutes later still not seated! Checked again, cleaning the table, plus a lot of walk-ins before us & had been busy and their wait staff needed a break. We finally got seated! Ordered appetizer and before it came ordered dinner. More wait, appetizer lukewarm. Now it was 7:20 no dinner and concert a 8! Who knew when we would get dinner? Informed the server that we were leaving. Don't have any positive things to recommend about Markers Mark. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We had a 6:00 reservation for dinner before an 8:00 concert at the Sprint Center. We were not seated for dinner until 6:45. Apparently the restaurant chose to seat several walk-in diners, even when they knew all of their tables were fully reserved for several hours. That upset many people, and it's doubtful most of them will return. The food was good, the service adequate, but that wait after having made reservations months ago was unforgivable."

  • "Waitress did the best she could, but short staffed on a predictably busy night. Long waits for everything! Poor management "

  • "Everything about the evening was great except the noise level was far too loud. I was with a group of four women who did not know each other that well and I hoped we could get to know each other better over a nice long dinner before attending the Cher concert. However, we had to keep talking louder in order to hear each other. Also many things had to be repeated because we could not hear each other. It did not help to have a bunch of drunk people in the P & L area who were very loud regardless of how worthy the cause was that contributed to their intoxication & the overall noise level in the area. This was my second time dining there & both times the noise level was a bit much to hold a normal conversation with friends. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The early dinner times are great and let you enjoy the atmosphere without all of the p&l bar crowd. Crab cakes are wonderful, steaks, burgers, and desserts well worth the money. The artichoke dip was a bit heavy on the cumin I thought, but still pretty tasty. Will be returning! "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We asked for a booth and once seated noticed the table seemed a little high. The Waitress, although polite, was less than attentive. We had the Sirloin and it was perfect. We were celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary and thought we would give this place a try. While we would return, we won't recommend, based on the service, this place for special occasions."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "Seated 20 minutes past our reservation time. Food service was extremely slow, and they botched an order. They should have comped the person's meal. My food was good, but my wife's steak was overcooked. Not seeing the need to go back."

  • "I needed to entertain out of town visitors and this place hit the mark. Great steaks on half-off Tuesdays, and Morgan took great care of us. "

  • "This restaurant was definitely nicer than I expected it to be! The photos do not do it justice. Based on the photos, I expected an Americana diner. It has the ambiance of a fine dining restaurant. The drinks were great though it took forever to get them. The food was good, seafood was cooked perfectly. Great for a date or a nice dinner out with friends. "

  • "Want some bourbon? Then hit up MM Lounge in KC. Great selection. Also, Tues night was half price steak night! Incredible deal!!"
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "Our evening started out poorly when we attempted to access the restaurant via the common area. Apparently they were having a "private" party for approx. 800 and regardless of our reservation we were required to walk around the block to access the front door. Once inside the noise level was that of a college bar on a Saturday night on remained at that level for the entire stay. The service was lackluster as apparently they had not staffed for either the party outside or their dining room, drinks were slow to arrive and few and far between. The food was okay with the steaks being rated "good" by those in the party that had them and the seafood rated "so-so" by others. Overall a well below par experience for the price."

  • "It was my husbands birthday and luckily there was also a concert at P&L. Makers Mark went above and beyond, we had the most amaizing table outside, wonderful steak dinner and had our favorite wine, we stayed on the patio for the concert which has an excellent view. Special thanks to our waiter, he was perfect. We will most definitely return."

  • "Had the prime rib and KC strip steak on our visit. The prime rib was one of the best I've had in KC. The steak was good but I can think of multiple other KC restaurants that serve better steak. The size of the side dishes is laughable for the price you pay but the quality/taste was fine. Service was okay for us at times and the wait staff was good with answering questions; they just took too long between visits to the table and it definitely was not busy at the time. I'd recommend Maker's Mark for the food quality but consider it a bit overpriced."

  • "Arrived with reservations, sat for 20 minutes with water, offered appetizer by the host, still no wait staff, finally someone came, took our drink order, disappeared for 15 more minutes, had to grab another server to ask for help who then got the host who got the server (after we had watched her serve other patrons and bus tables) who then came back with a lame apology and brought the wrong drink which came after the appetizer so we had no drink with that. Then brought a salad that had dressing on it when no dressing was requested. Manager tried to make up for it by comping the appetizer but the experience was already sad. When I asked for a drink to come with my dinner, she thought that was the name of my drink "with my dinner" Weird."

  • "The entrance is a little confusing as there is more than one way to enter, but do not let that stop you as the hostess will greet you at whatever door you enter with a smile and very welcoming personality. The rest is plain and simple from that point on, great food and over the top service."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The food was good. This would be great place except anything with an open patio to KC Live is horribly noisy and not very intimate. With basketball tournament being in town as well, the crowd was a little out of control. Felt more like a college bar than a restaurant."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Excellent food and service. The salmon will melt in your mouth. The steaks were absolutely flavorful and cooked to perfection. There is something for everyone - burgers, steak, seafood, pasta. The waitress, Grace, made our evening with her excellent service and sense of when we needed something and when we didn't need something. It's a bit pricey, but well worth it and especially so if it is a special occasion. We will derfinitely return."
