This is the 1st restaurant I’ve eaten at where salad dressing is not included in the price of a side salad or barbecue sauce for the kids meal chicken fingers. Seems kind of strange

Many years ago, Champps used to be one of our go to places we always enjoyed. There weren't many people in the restaurant and the service was terrible, our burgers and fries/waffle fries were cold and it's just too bad we won't be going back.

We went during a very busy time. Made a reservation and had to wait 15 minutes extra for table..I think they are new to reservations and how they work..but they were extremely busy so we didn't mind. Wasnt as long of a wait as it seemed it should have been.

We made reservations online for 7:15pm. When we got there we were not on the list and had to wait almost 40 minutes to get seated. Other then that it was good food.

We went there for brunch and it wasn’t exactly impressive. The pasta dish was old meaning the pasta was hard and cold. There was not much selection for the price compared to other restaurants offering brunch.

Loud Girls get together on a Friday night. Started off with deep fried brussel sprouts, NUM!! Only complaint kind of small order, we had to order a second round of them. Waffle fries were great, just right for crispiness, seasoned sour cream was better than ever. My friend decided to have the bloody mary for her dinner. She said the food inside it was great but the bloody mary was just ok.
What made the night was our server Brian! He was fun, interacted with us, invited us to trivia on Thursday nights, kept our drinks filled, checked in with us regularly but not too much. He is a great asset to Champs and I hope management knows it!!

Restaurant was ok, but they had no record of my Open Table reservation when my group arrived. So what's the point of even using Open Table?

We haven't been to a Champp's for quite some time because most of them have closed around us and we have always enjoyed and that didn't change with this visit. The only things that would be great is if they had more gluten free and dairy free choices!

Our waiter was really slow and not attentive. We could never find him even though the restaurant was empty except for a few tables. The food was awful. All of it was overdone except the mozzarella sticks. Everything else was burnt or tasteless. I won’t be going back there any time soon unless I just want some cheese sticks. Oh and the food took forever to come out with no apologies from the server.

The waitress carried too much at a time to our table and dumped one plate onto us and plate broke into pieces all over... luckily it was not a hot dish! Never been to a place where that has happened..

I was very surprised/impressed by Champs. Being a chain sports bar, I didn’t expect much but the food was really good. We had a burger and the dilemma chicken sandwich. They have a great beer selection and the space is large and clean. Service was good too!!

Service was terrible. We got our food in shifts. The first one came out and then two of us had fajitas. They brought the toppings. A little while later the tortillas and a little while later the
Meat. The last meal came out at least 5 min. Later. We started eating so our food didn’t get cold. And it was 40 min. From the time we ordered till we got our food.

We ordered 3 appetizers and all 3 served lukewarm at best. There were very few people in the restaurant so I would have expected the food to be served hot. We should have sent it back , but we were on a time line and could not have waited for another meal to come out.
