    Service was unacceptable. No utensils or napkins at the table when the food finally came. Never got any refills on our drinks or chips and salsa. Took forever to receive our food or any other requests we made. Never got offered any dessert.

    We went for Christmas dinner. The food was great, the waitress was doing her best even while being intimidated by another family that was there. It was busy but not overly busy and not to loud. we enjoyed our meal as a small family on Christmas.

    Couldn’t wait to start the Birthday celebration! We arrived, no reservations required. Told them who I was and we had reservations for 3 at 2:30. Didn’t ask name or care. They just sat us. Our waiter was very nice, and very attentive. But I had requested on my reservation memo to have someone sing Happy Birthday to my 93 year old mom. It was her Birthday. That did not happen. So irritating after making the reservation and requesting a small gesture that it didn’t happen. I will think twice upon doing it his again. Because it wasn’t even a busy time.

    You know Chevys was always a predictably good meal. Love the fajitas, chips and salsa. This time we were all sorely disappointed. Tortillas were dropped at the table, directly on the table, no basket or container to keep them warm and soft. They were crispy/over cooked and sad. Grilled meat was fine, but over compensated on the veggies to make up for smaller portion of protein. Only enough lettuce and tomato for one fajita. And no guac in sight. Added a gratuity to our party of 22% which I thought was really outrageous. We had to ask for water, silverware and plates! When the server brought the silverware he just handed one person 7 rolls of silverware in napkins, couldn’t even deliver it to each place setting. Floor was slick and sticky, half the lights on the exterior didn’t work. It was sad.

    It was my 65th birthday. Initially table facing parking lot but they accommodated my request to face the water. A little bit slow @ first but then we reached a groove. Margarita delish, food great! Love Chevy’s; thanks for helping me celebrate my milestone birthday

    Chips were way below par. Tortillas were very undercooked, not even half baked. I have eaten at Chevys 1-3 times per week since 1995.

    I have not been @ Chevys in years. This was for my daughters 25th birthday and this was supposed to be special. I am very disappointed in the portion sizes, the rice looked like it was two Spoonfuls and the quality of the food. My first bite of a taco was a piece of fat. I didn't eat my food as my stomach turned. My dad and boyfriend ordered coffee and it was cold. Watier said their specialty was margaritas. We were a party of 10 and no one was satisfied with the food. We would have been better going to a real taqueria. I did go to Happy hour in the past, never had a problem. I don't have the money to waste to come to this restaurant again.

    Love the location of the restaurant, the view is great. The surver was very nice but a bit over worked. Only two on the floor. I got the table no problem but once we got drinks and food the server disappeared. We needed a drink refresh, extra plates and salt/pepper. The food was droped and I had to go and get the plates and salt and pepper. Being a waiter for over 38 years there is nothing worse than getting the food to a table and no fallow up. We finaly got some help but I was a bit perterbed at that point. The food was good.. Chrvies have been closing all around the bay. I can see they are stretched out for good servers or just do not want to pay them or train them. So close but yet so far. It was kinda sad to watch. Sincerely, Steven Thornburgh

    After the experience today, I do not think I would ever go back to a Chevy’s. first off the parking at this location is atrocious considering all of the spaces are designed for tiny cars and anything more than a small sedan either won’t fit or will take up multiple spaces. Then, the first impression by the host stand is you are left, standing there, waiting for quite some time until somebody actually comes up to recognize you and seat you. Service itself is quite disjointed in that the servers don’t recognize tables in the order in which they are seated and instead bounce around with no particular rhyme or reason. Things like food come out random intervals with appetizers being delivered after entrées. utensils being brought to the table after the food is delivered. Refills on beverages were not offered including the margarita. Plus the food itself is truly just mediocre at best assuming that what you order is actually available and they’re not out. I did speak with a member of management who did take the appetizer off my bill however, I would’ve gotten that already for free through over award from the loyalty program. This is a restaurant that needs quite a bit of work.

    Come here for the drinks NOT the food. Food was cold and gross. Ordered steak and it was BLUE when it arrived and too salty to eat even if it was cooked more. Enchiladas were somehow dry and tasted freezer burnt. Chips and salsa are great and so are the margaritas

    As the place is cavernous, the noise level is extremely high, so much that you also have to speak loudly to the person you are sitting next too at the same table. The place needs a good cleaning and maintenance. The restrooms were in poor shape and certainly aren’t looked after hourly as they should be. The kitchen had food and garbage on the floor everywhere as it could be seen from the outside. It has potential to be a great place. It sits right on the water, with terrific views. Instead, its worse than a high traffic mall food court.

    All day happy hour on Sunday and everyday from 3 - Close. While they did get busy while we were there we never felt neglected. Ordering from the happy hour menu is value! The overall bill was probably $50 dollars less than ordering everything separate. The view of the water is amazing! Only negative is that the bathroom was disgusting, and the service really slows down when they get busy.

    We came to Chevy’s for my son’s birthday. We happened to be there during a 33 year celebration of Chevy’s so there was a party atmosphere! Things started out great, our waiter was super friendly and kept the chips coming(my son’s favorite)… took our order and then that’s when it all started to fall apart….. They were busy for sure, there was a live DJ… music was awesome and fun… everyone that works at this restaurant seemed to be working that night…. Unfortunately though, they all seemed to be too busy taking selfie’s under the ballon arch to actually help any diners…. Our food finally arrived after a very very long wait… but no silverware… we asked for some but we were ignored… asked someone else and they said our server would bring them… but no sign of him…. Finally I got up and asked the 8 people at the hostess station for some silverware… everyone looked at each other like they didn’t know what to do…. I finally asked the girl making the tortillas for some, she happily obliged… By now our food was cold.. so it was spoiled… It also had obviously been made for a while and sitting under a heat lamp because everything was like rubber… My son who turned 12 was enjoying himself, so we didn’t complain… Took 2 bites and then didn’t finish the rest it was absolutely inedible…. Hopefully someone in management sees this, because your staff obviously need some major retraining in basic skills…. Too bad…

    Lost my AMX Hilton card there if you find it cut it up for me. Food was good, service was just fine and outside seating which wasn't offered was perfect once we found it near the bar. Thanks to our bartender he placed us out on the patio.
