We had poor service all night. Our server was not very attentive, we had to flag him down when we wanted something, and was bussing the table while we tried to order and would then walk away. He asked us to cash out early because he was leaving and had the wrong items on our tickets. We got the checks taken care of and then we had to ask someone to come wait on our table because no one was reassigned after or serve left. I had a discussion with the replacement server, saying I don’t like walnuts and when a salad was brought out it had walnuts on there. Poor service all the way around.

Every worker there was super crabby and did NOT care about customer service. Speaking of service.. it was AWFUL. Super slow and our food was cold. This was for mine and my brothers 30th birthday and it was honestly the worst experience I’ve had a ballpark village. Then when my husband left his debit card there he called the very next day, spoke with Anthony and they said they would keep his card in the safe until we got there Monday afternoon. We drove from st. Charles to St. Louis to have the very same AWFUL waitress tell us that per policy, his credit card was shredded. UNBELIEVABLE. We will NOT be back.

Service was great. Food was good. Price was a little too close to ballpark pricing, especially when it wasn't during a game.

Great food! We really enjoyed the pretzel bites appetizer. The burgers and Mac and cheese were great too. Our waiter, Nick, was very attentive and personable. The view of the ballpark across the street wasn’t too bad either. Overall great experience! We will be back!

Prime rib was allright blackened shrimp pasta was lacking flavor biscuits were tough. shrinp was watery cocktail sauce again lacked much flavor. bread pudding overcooked. hashbrowns no very good potatoes were ok and the bacon was great but that dose not justify a 45 dollar brunch the prime rib wasn't even warm. truely disappointed in cardinals nation $100 fir sub par food i could come better at the golden coral. the vote was awsome or server was great. Oh i. left off warm champagne for mimosas.

Very disappointed in the Valentines Sunday brunch for we regularly dine at ballpark Village restaurants and enjoy the food however the Sunday brunch was not close to the usual standards. Choices of food was extremely poor. The beef was severely under cooked and the omelet was poorly prepared and cooked. The Bread pudding was hard and probably prepared a day or two before the brunch. Very disappointed in the very limited choices available. The best item was the shrimp.

This was a fantastic experience. We attended a Valentine's Brunch and I have to say the service was without a doubt the best I have ever received at this restaurant. While the menu could have been more comprehensive and diverse, the presentation, complete with ice sculpture bowls, was perfect. Great job to all!

The service was horribly slow. There were 30min at a time that we could not find our server & would ask others servers to help us. You had to wait 15-20min for refills on drinks. You had to order bottomless alcohol drinks, wait 15-20min for your server to bring you a glass with alcohol in it, then go to the bar and finish making your drink yourself. Chocolate covered strawberries were advertised as part of the buffet, but you had to ask your server to bring them to you & only 1 per person. The food on the buffet was good quality. Summary: Having made reservations weeks in advance, the event was poorly staffed or poorly planned. I will not be returning, and would not recommend this to my friends and family.

We went enjoy dinner during the Allstar Game and had a poor experience. There were young adults potentially minors intoxicated and falling into our table. One even dropped a drink all over my aunt as we eating a meal. No ids were ever checked of any youth at the bar and no one was cut off and multiple were falling into other patrons and the bar won’t the tables were even close to being full. We won’t be back.

The place was not busy when we arrived however we had to flag down a manager to get a server after waiting 20 mins. After ordering we then had to ask where our bar drinks were since they took forever as well. The server was super sweet and accommodating once she got to us however several tables had people looking around not getting helped.

Each year the food seems less impressive. We were there at noon and only 2 pieces of pie were left. I would recommend this event to families with kids under 8. My son is 8 and was the oldest one there. Seeing Fredbird and Santa and making reindeer food were a fun time. They also had a face painter and a balloon design station.

We loved the Fredbird brunch! It would of been nice to get a bit more time with Fredbird, but we understand it’s not possible with everyone wanting pictures with him. The kids loved getting pictures with him, faces painted and having balloons made. They thought making reindeer food was pretty neat too, and enjoyed listening to Mrs. Clause read a story. My son is picky eater, so we didn’t have as many food options for him. The other 3 of us enjoyed our meals. We plan to come back next year for this experience.

Breakfast with Santa but, I must say that they ‘knocked it out of the park’!! Large variety of breakfast & lunch selections. Desserts for days....The service team also met every need before we could ask. Highly recommend and will attend again:)

We attended the Brunch with Santa and Fredbird. The photo op and the children’s activities were great, but the construction situation and the quality of food were not. We parked in the garage and had to trek around construction and through makeshift walkways that were very shady, with a two year old. The food was awful. It was a buffet so I didn’t expect five stars, but for $45 per person, it was not worth it. The prime rib was cold, the food was either too salty or too bland. Also, it was an event geared towards kids and the menu did not reflect that. My two year old doesn’t eat eggs Benedict or prime rib. Chicken tenders or something of that nature would have been good to see. We had to stop for food on the way home because my two year old didn’t eat.
It was $140 with tip and I was extremely disappointed with the restaurant part, but the photo with Santa & Fredbird is priceless.

We had such a great time, though our Boys were older 13 and 11 years, Fredbird and the Photographer were able to get them into the Spirit of the season! I have a picture I will cherish of my Boys truly smiling with FredBird! I appreciate everyone we met and enjoyed the experience immensely!

For the price of the brunch, I expected a higher quality of food. Several of the dishes that were supposed to be hot, were actually very cold and very unappetizing. The Shrimp and Crab Claws were not just cold, but actually frozen. The amount of water contained in the frozen shellfish made it very unappealing and frankly very bland. Even the prime rib that was sliced in front of me was very cold and very bland.
I feel your chef's should have been a little more aware of the quality of food they were putting out.
The overall experience was very enjoyable for my grandkids, but we will not be returning due to the quality of the food and the cost. If the food had been upto the standard I believe the Cardinal organization prides themselves on, we would definitely return for other events like this one.
But again, I was extremely disappointed in the brunch buffet.

The coordination by the team at Cardinals Nation made the experience very enjoyable. Our server Dee was attentive and made the experience enjoyable. There were a lot of choices with food and most of it was warm. This is our second year attending and really enjoy the event that is put on.

Service was spotty and burgers were overcooked to death. Never brought the mayo I asked for, and I had to track server down to get my parking ticket validated even after i had asked him about it at the beginning. Amazing space, but the food is tourist trap expensive.

We like kids eat free but there were no games as indicated online. The kids liked their food and my potato skins were good. My husband did not Iike the meatloaf and mashed potatoes. He thinks they were a mix. The server was nice but it took a long time to get our food and the salad came out with the meal.

This was not our first time to dine at Cardinals Nation and we were very much looking forward to our meal. We all had a cheeseburger that was small and did not have much flavor. The portion sizes were very small. I usually can not finish a restaurant meal and I was still hungry when I left. After having to pay $30 for just parking and then $12 for a small flavorless burger. We will probably not return to dine there. Disappointed.

If you are wanting some game time atmosphere, this is it! This restaurant is filled with a pep rally feeling. So good ratings for that. The food was not extraordinary (grilled cheese, waffle fries for me and steak, mac n cheese and soup for my companion). The downside is the steak was terribly over cooked and was ordered rare. We suspected this might be the case when it took 45 minutes to get our food. The steak was taken off the plate at our table by the server. We were not charged for it (no kidding!) and it was really too late to start over. Our server was kind enough, but very overworked. Maybe some called in sick to go to the game? Either way, I appreciate food more than “fun” (food is my fun) and would not personally make a return visit.

The service was poor, our waitress was inattentive, slow and not very friendly. We had a 3:30 reservation, were seated at 3:20, it was 20 minutes before we even got our drink order, and were there for 1 hour and 50 minutes. Had our reservation been later we would have been late for the game. Other tables around us came and went and our food never came. 1 of our party got her food and it was all cold and had obviously been sitting for awhile. the food tasted good but was not an overall good experience.
