This was one of the worst customer service experiences I ever we had. We waited almost an hour for my food without an update. No communication from server and lack communications from the manager was even worse. This location really needs training in customer service.

My 16 yr old daughter and her boyfriend went in and they were ignored, treated rudely, served an hour after they ordered while people that came in much later than them got served and left. No one checked in on them, explained the delay, asked if they needed anything, etc. she was so nervous about going out to eat the first time alone, and it was such an awful experience for her.

Food was pretty good. They took long to get our food. And when we needed something, our waitress wasn’t always around.

After waiting an hour for food the wrong food was delivered. Then waited another 30 minutes for the right food which was cold. Double charged for certain items. Server was non existent most of the time.

Our waitress was very unresponsive. Even when I flagged her down she wouldn't come over. On top of it I was charged for additional items I did not order.

What's disappointing is we planned to order additional food, but the service was so bad we went somewhere else.

This is the first time I made a reservation because of Monday night football, but we come in often. Service continues to get worse and worse.

Q the server was the best thing going for Hooters on Wells. Actually she is one of the best servers I’ve experienced even at upper echelon restaurants. There were 5 dirty tables while we were waiting but the hostesses and other servers would go past and not help with cleaning. I understand it’s not your table but obviously they don’t believe in team effort or cleanliness of the place. My kids said the food Taste funny.

The Service I Received Was Terrible . I had a reservation and I still had to wait an hour to be seated. The manger and employees (Seth Baumen & Jose Navarro) was RUDE & had poor customer service. Also our waitress Kita had lack of Knowledge about the food that was served at the location. My food was cold. I order was brought out at different time so we was never able to eat like a family. If I could have giving a negative star I would have. I would never recommend anyone to this Hooters

The waiter really wasn't listening to our orders. She forgot a few of our items. Therefore since she didn't put our other food in we just said forget it.

The Hostestbsaid that they didn’t accept reservations (even though I made mine through their website’s Open Table). It wasn’t crowded, so we were able to be sat within 5 minutes. Our waitress was friendly, but did not provide good service. She didn’t know the beers on the menu, let us go long periods of time without checking on us. We had to flag her down 2 times for refills of beer and water. She forgot to bring things we asked for. Like I said, she was nice but the service wasn’t very good.

My friends and I came to Hooters as it’s one of my favorite spots to eat and while our waitress was very sweet, she did not have a few of our orders right. Additionally, some of my friends had to request that their food be remade because it was not hot. There were 13 of us and it was not a normal busy Friday at this location, so I’m not sure why she didn’t remember who ordered what items. Overall, it was a decent time, but a more experienced server would’ve been better.

The food was good and our waitress did her best, but, overall, it was not a good experience and I will not be going back. The hostess was not at the front of the restaurant, it took quite a while for us to receive our drinks, people waiting for tables were not limited to the front of the restaurant as there were random individuals sitting at tables watching TV who hadn't ordered anything and there was some random small charge added to my bill that was not explained, but by that time, I was just ready to go and did not want to spend any more time there. There was just a sense of disorder and confusion, and no appreciation of the customers tnat I could see. The manager just didn't seem up to the job and didn't seem interested in keeping customers happy. Again, I will not be going back.

Food was great. Service was bad. Hooters girls were clueless to what opentable even was. I tried to explain it and they weren’t getting it. They had to talk to a manager- who later said I’d get my points. And the other hooters girls were standing around goofing off. They were complaining and being picky about what tables they wanted to serve and which ones they didn’t. And our hooters waitress was always hard to find. She wasn’t attentive to our table. I’m a huge hooters fan, but this location isn’t good for service. (Although their food was perfect.)

The food was terrible. We ordered wings and basically got chicken tenders dipped and butter, no sauce. When we asked for sauce it was basically butter that they gave us...AGAIN. The server was nowhere to be found for 75% of the meal. The only redeeming quality was the $14 pitcher of beer...because I definitely needed it to be eating that food.

I eat Hooters often and was disappointed today. My chicken was at room temperature when I first got it. I sent it back and apparently I didn’t get fresh chicken. It was probably just microwaved.

The other disappointment was that the chicken was swimming in grease. When I commented on it to the server, she responded it was just the sauce: that was not the case. I ate the chicken after patting each piece with a paper towel.
