Thank you for taking the time to leave us the kind review, Sheila! We hope to see you again soon.
Hostess was wonderful, food was decent, server was horrible. Super rude, couldn’t make any recommendations. I asked about some of the specials and the response was “I don’t know” with an accompanying eye roll. I couldn’t even get pepper on my salad. We had been excited to try it. We won’t ever come back.

Food and service was excellent, but very noisy.
Thank you for the review!
Great food and perfect ambiance for a business lunch. Excellent service.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us the kind words! We hope to see you again soon.
Food was great...a little pricey but again, it was great food. The crab cakes were delicious...a lot of crab and really no cake, which is what you want! Service was excellent! I’d go back for sure!
Hi Erin, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed our Crab Cakes and look forward to seeing you again soon.
I had the wrong order sent to me, waited an extra 20 minutes while everyone’s ate, when I finally received my food the waiter took my utensils and I had to look for him and wait while watching my food there on the table.
Hi, thank you for taking the time leave us a review. We will be sharing this information with our team to look into the situation further. Thank you again.
Great server. The ceasar salad with anchovies was very good
Thank you for the kind review, Brian! We hope to see you again soon.
Wilson was an outstanding waiter who provided us with recommendations and knew when to check in and when to let us talk amongst ourselves. We really appreciate giving us a table that was in an area a bit quieter so we could hear each other - some of our group is hard of hearing. Good soup special, lovely salmon Caesar, fish and chips and the burger - all satisfying! There was a hiccup with having a coupon and half-off wine night, but Wilson handled it smoothly.
Hi Kate, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed our service and dishes during your time with us as we will be sure to pass along the kind sentiments to the team. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
I ordered special with no onions due to an alergy. Also ordered rare burger. It was well done but server delivered with special caution of no seasonings which had onion powder. I thought they took special care and attention to my order. Well done in making me feel like an appreciated Customer, thank you, well done. Burger was well done, so you got that wrong, but overall, better than getting onions on it. Thank you VERY MUCH, SAVED A TRIP TO HOSPITAL. extra special thank you, great job. I will be back

Valentine’s Day - very nice foods... service was good. Way too much noise
Thank you for the review! We will share the information about the noise level with the team. We hope to see you again soon.
Ambiance: Very loud, music volume precluded conversation , tables are crowded and jammed in, lighting was poor. Service: wait staff was was ill equipped and forgetful, seemed very frenzied. The floor manager was very attentive. Food was OK

We had reservations for 7:00, and didn’t get a table until 7:40! Then it was in the bar, very noisy. Didn’t get to enjoy the company we were with for all the noise and bar activity.
We’ve come here for the last 5 years for a conference and Alway eat Valentines Day Supper here! Not again, sorry it just didn’t measure up to the cost of the evening.

So, we decided to try a new place and made a reservation for Valentine's Day 2020 – Unfortunately, Joe Theismann’s fell short.
Greeting & Atmosphere: A busy night so we expected to wait. Reservation for 6:45 – seated at 6:58. "Waiting area" very cramped and not designed for such a crowd. Hostess staff was very friendly and efficient. Atmosphere is more of a sports bar than a nice restaurant.
Wait Staff: Waitress was nice enough, but nearly every encounter contained "excuses". "I'll try, but wine glasses are hard to come by tonight." "I told the bartender what you wanted." "The kitchen is probably overworked."
- Crab Dip appetizer - OK - but nothing outstanding.
- Wedge Salad - good - hard to mess up cutting a head of lettuce into 1/4 pieces.
- French Onion Soup - soup tasted good. Presentation - not so much.
- Salmon with red potatoes and grilled asparagus - Salmon was good although a little overdone. Potatoes were simply boiled and placed on the plate – had no flavor. Asparagus grilled but pale in color and lacked any flavor. Best part of this dish was the roasted tomato-dill butter.
- 8oz Filet Mignon w/ grilled asparagus and substituted a loaded baked potato without bacon. Asparagus pale and lacked any flavor. “Loaded” baked potato (minus bacon) just had a large scoop of sour cream down the middle – no cheese, scallions or anything. Worst part – the potato was brown as if it had been soaked in beef broth giving it an odd/salty flavor. Filet was ordered medium – came extremely rare. Sent it back – well done on the outside and rare in the middle with extra demi glace. I just asked for the salmon instead – it came overcooked.
Spoke with the waitress and manager. Both apologize and the manager took everything off the bill – but we would’ve rather had a great meal at a fair price. We tipped the waitress and left.
Unfortunately - Joe Theismann's fell short on this occasion.
Sat very quickly, food came out fast and was very good. Perfectly cooked steak
Thank you for the review! We are happy to know you enjoyed your Valentine's Day with us. We look forward to hosting you again soon.
Took my wife there for Valentines Day dinner. I liked the interior change that was made some time ago. The place looks nice. I had made a reservation for a certain time and we ended up waiting for about 15 minutes until we got seated. Of course I went to the bar to get a couple of drinks while waiting and wouldn't you know it....The table was ready. The food was quite salty all around with everything we ordered from the Calamari to the French onion soup. The Short ribs were nothing special. It was basically a pot roast... Salmon was a bit on the tiny portion size...The asparagus and green beans were fantastic. The roasted potatoes were great as well. Just needed some sour cream or a drizzle of something to cut the starch.
Highly recommend the vegetables.. Waitress was very busy so we waited for drinks during the meal for quite a while before she came back to ask us if we needed anything else. All in all it was just OK. Wish it had been better considering it was Valentines Day after all. Just Saying....
I would suggest this restaurant for a fun night out if you like sports and are going with friends. Not a romantic atmosphere
We appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review, Linda!
It was Valentine’s Day and super busy! Our waitress was excellent and the service was great! The food was delicious as usual, especially the pastrami appetizer! We had a wonderful time!
Hi Denise, we appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review! We are thrilled to know you had an excellent time during your Valentine's Day and we hope to see you again soon.
Reserved the Valentines Day special and the food, wine, and price were fantastic. Being shoved into a small table crowded between two other loud couples...terrible. I’ve been there before and had no idea they had such a bad table and we were the unlucky couple stuck there. Really sad dinner given that seating!
Hi Jason, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We are delighted to know you enjoyed our dishes and wine selection. We will be sharing the information provided with the team as we do hope see you again soon.
Great Valentine's dinner! Thank you.
Thank you for the kind words, Jacob!
Great service and good food. The new layout is great for mingling with people on a Friday/Saturday night.
Thank you for the kind words, Scott! We hope to see you again soon.
We dine at Theismann’s a lot, and decided to come for their special Valentine’s Day menu. It was excellent food, as always, and a great value. Our server was fantastic.
Thank you for the lovely words, Savannah! We look forward to hosting you again soon.
Probably would recommend an evening dining experience. We went for lunch and this place is known for its steak. We ordered prime rib and frankly, we've had better. I think it was definitely not something that should be ordered for lunch. Each of us compared notes and we have concluded that the pieces we were given were reheated leftovers from the previous night. The service was good and our waitress engaging.
We saw other orders walked by our table and they looked good. We were disappointed with what we ordered.
Burgers were terrific
Fish & Chips excellent
Crab Cake sandwich - not too good
Potato fries - trying hard but did not come off well on our 3 dinners
Hi Lou, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We will be sharing the information provided about our Crab Cake Sandwich and fries with team. We do hope to see you again soon.
Too noisy to have conversations
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We will share this information with the management team.
Consistent, tasty, and good prices!
Thank you for the kind words, David! We hope to see you again soon.
Service was great, good food and drink! Love it here since the renovation and menu overhaul. Manager was visible and working hard!
Thank you for taking the time to leave us the kind review! We are happy to know you enjoyed your service and dishes during your time with us. We look forward to hosting you again soon.
our waitress did not know a lot of details regarding the menu. not a problems. but it was weird that she swiped our credit card at the table and handed it to me to add a tip. I don't like to do that in front of the wait staff.
Hi Nalin, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We will be sharing this information with the management team. Thank you again and we do hope you come in to give us another try.
Great cocktails and portion size
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review!
Friendly staff and remodelled bar area for an open atmosphere.
Thank you for the lovely words, Marianthe! We hope to see you again soon.
A wonderful refresh of an old favorite. New owners have pumped new blood into Theismann's with a complete renovation - now a real sports bar with plenty of TV's but great food & service, too...
Hi, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We are thrilled to hear you love our renovations just as much as we do and look forward to hosting you again soon.
Very good food, large portions, great value
Thank you for the review, Richard!
