deSha's American Tavern Ratings and Reviews
The staff was very polite and professional. (I recommend making reservations as they tend to be pretty busy, specially on the weekends) Our server was super friendly and attentive to our needs. The scenery was lovely and our food came out in a timely manner.
We had a confirmed reservation for 6:45 PM Saturday evening. When we arrived the hostes informed us that no tables were available for our confirmed reservation. She suggested that we check the two bars, and see if we could find a table ourselves, which we couldn’t. It was obvious that deShay’s was giving priority to seating anyone who walked in the door, if they were willing to wait. Hence, the complete lack of tables for those who had confirmed reservations. The hostes seemed not to care at all about the fact that they were not honoring our confirmed reservation. No apology, no “give me a few minutes and I’ll see what I can do”. She just left us standing there, so after a while, we left. But, the hostess was very young, and probably not to blame for our poor experience. It was clear the management did not properly train, monitor, or support her. Our experience was a classic case of a failure of deShay’s management to manage.
DeShay’s was one of our three “go to” local restaurants, eating there, on average twice a month. But now, not so much....
GREAT meal at DeSha's on Friday evening with good friends from west side! They hadn't been there and loved it! Glad we shared a great evening there with them! Food was wonderful and choices so good!
Our waitress was EXCELLENT too!
Don't remember her name but our reservations were for 6:45pm and we sat in main level first left off steps in booth. She was young and pretty!
This wasn't the first time eating here. As usual, the food was good and the service attentive. One thing I'll say is that the food comes out hot. Too often sone restaurants serve tepid dishes and think it's ok.
Overall, this place is great for an every day type dinner with tasty comfort food.
there were four of us for an early dinner after Saturday evening church service. We were early so the noise level was quiet which we appreciated. Our server was pleasant and attentive.one person ordered the meatloaf open sandwich and gave it a thumbs up (it did look very good), one ordered the crab stuffed mushrooms along with the soup of the day-Chicken potato soup. I ordered the chicken, cranberry, blue cheese flat bread and the soup of the day as well. The fourth person ordered a house salad since he had been snacking in the afternoon!
Everyone was pleased with their choice other than the soup of the day. I guess the description led us to believe that it would be a cream based soup which it was not. It was a tomato based soup and on top of that it was spicy (which had not been included in the servers suggestion).
DE Shays is a very comfortable neighborhood restaurant that we will continue to support.
Prime Rib, wine and a free birthday desert- How can you go wrong? Went to deSha's on my birthday for my standard "birthday dinner" of Prime Rib and mashed potatoes, because I had always thought that this was their speciality. The food was very good on this evening. In a visit a few months prior the meat was very disappointing- too much fat and gristle, not much flavor. We are glad to find out that the bad experience was the outlier, and that we can again depend on deSha's for good Prime rib.
The food and service is consistently excellent. We love the daily specials and the roasted potatoes are delicious. Best cornbread ever!! I also appreciate the complimentary birthday dinner. I look forward to this every year.
Our family also spends every Christmas Eve at Desha's for dinner.
This was our second visit to de'sha's. Once again we were not disappointed. We were thrilled to be seated with a view of the pond! Our server was excellent and the food was delicious (especially the prime rib on a pretzel bun)! We'll definitely return and would highly recommend de'sha's!
