    The service was slow. We watched servers chatting in different parts of the restaurant rather than taking care of customers. We had to find our own condiments, go to the bar for drink refills, and eventually ask a manager to push the server to charge our meals. Food was ok. Probably won’t visit again anytime soon.

    Alphonso was our server and he did an amazing job and had great recommendations for us. We got there right at opening and it was pretty quiet but quickly started to fill up. I will say the menu described the mac and cheese as "spicy" but there was nothing spicy about it.

    Our party of 4 arrived and were seated within minutes of our reservation. The server was very attentive, taking drink orders immediately and giving us the proper amount of time to review the menu and then order. As expected, the food was very good...we have eaten at Joe's KC a number of times and knew that we would not be disappointed. County Road Ice House is a convenient option for dining prior to any event in downtown Kansas City...we will be back.

    I’m not sure I will visit this venue again. I’ve been coming here for over six years and this year the management is not where it should be. The money I’ve spent (and also the money my friends from the KC Power and Light building have spent) here is surreal As we live a block away and along with the friends from my building of Kansas City Power and Light Building-it’s just not the same. Disrespectful and DOES NOT try and make a win/win situation. It would be different if we weren’t locals, but we patronized this restaurant during the worst time. Makes me sad

    The receptionist wasn’t very friendly. She informed us that the kitchen closes in 10 minutes which was confusing since we were allowed to make a 7:45 reservation. There was another woman sitting at the front desk also who had her feet kicked up on the counter. Our server was very friendly and did a great job. The food was also good.

    We may have gone on an off night. The food was reheated was not even throughout. The texture was way off. The ribs were mushy and the fat only partial rendered. The burn ends were off as well with the fat was not rendered. The brisket was sliced so thinly that it was dried out. Definitely not award winning BBQ. The cocktail was watered down and switched to beer.

    The food was good. Service was really poor. We were a group of 8, would have thought by how overwhelming it was that there were 20 of us. The server couldn’t handle keeping orders straight, drinks straight. We didn’t get any appetizers we ordered. Ordered three of the exact same drink and were brought 3 of the exact same different drink. Asked for refund for those and were told they’d check and then charged us anyways. We won’t be back.

    We booked a table for 4, which according to the restaurant's reservation policy, we could have for 2 hours. Our waiter informed us after an hour and 20 minutes that they would need the table in 10 minutes. When I inquired about the policy, he sent the manager over to kick us out. I pulled up the policy on my phone, and he still insisted that we would have to vacate the table. Both the waiter and the manager handled the situation in a very rude way, and did not even apologize for violating their own stated policy. Highly disappointing, as we did enjoy the food, but hard to recommend this place after the way we were treated.

    Great experience. Our waitress was very helpful and the BBQ was fantastic. More of a bar atmosphere. A very small thing…but they should consider beer in glasses instead of plastic cups.

    Table too small for 8 people with no effort to accommodate after complaining. Served 7 of us and waited for 15 minutes for the 8th person. Don’t place your entire order all at once because they are incapable of timing your meal. Appetizer arrived before our tap beers. Fortunately we waited to order the entrees. Pretty weak unless you’re just out bar hopping.

    Our food literally came out two minutes after we ordered it which makes you feel everything is already cut and just sitting there like a buffet. The food was cold so that didn't really help the experience.
