    Wait staff was outstanding. The bigger guy working the front desk was extremely rude and unaccommodating. He’s clearly upset with his own life and abuses what little power he has.

    The atmosphere was exciting for the first time. The food was good, nothing special. Felt the eighteen % charge on top of the tip was a little much. I appreciate the workers, but there seems to be a better way to do that.

    Don's TV & RepairResponded 2 days agoThank you for coming in 1990. We appreciate your feedback. The 18% is a service charge and it goes directly to the front of house staff. It helps to ensure a higher, more predictable income for our staff. Any additional tip is totally optional. I hope that clears up any confusion. Cheers, The TV Repair Team at Don's

    Don’s is a fun place. My daughter and I are happy we gave it a try. Dan was our waiter. He was nice and attentive. The Cheese curds appetizer were very good, lots of garlic tho. The ‘Fruity Pebbles’ pancakes were great (according to my daughter). My fish sandwich was tasty but very messy. Everything inside the bun wanted to slide out. They always add 18% gratuity (and explained up front that this was their policy), but then claim… “the 18% gratuity is not a ‘tip’”. Maybe they should check Websters dictionary.

    Limited time at our table; they asked us to leave after an hour and said they budget 1 hour 15 minutes per table. 18% gratuity added automatically is a lot for this establishment. It was explained that this pays a fair wage to all staff. They suggest you tip more for your wait staff. Gets expensive for a burger joint. Not many menu options. Drinks were good.

    Very bizarre policy of adding 18% gratuity to all bills for kitchen and host (wait staff tip is separate). Just raise your prices 20% and pay your people a decent wage. They are include the gratuity in the subtotal used to calculate wait staff tip. Food was okay.

    Average food, terrible service. Bloody Mary was delivered to me 3/4 full, took 10 minutes to get someone’s attention and they said”sorry, we have a new bartender.” Eventually got a full drink. Server also forgot several side dishes, water refills. Lukewarm egg dish. I have to say my boozy ice cream drink was delish! I hate to complain but I was a server for many years and it’s a tough job. We were a group of 4, bill totaled $120 not including 18% service charge. I guess you don’t have to work too hard when tip is automatically included.

    It's a nice place with a neat theme. Didn't get in until about 10-15 minutes after our reservation time and then our sever forgot about us for another 10 minutes. To her credit, she admitted she forgot about us and did apologize as well as comp us an appetizer. Food wasn't bad but also wasn't great. It's small inside and a bit loud with conversations and the music. I may try it again?

    It’s a great concept and vibe but the food wasn’t that great. It was pretty mediocre and I’m being nice. The serve got or order wrong and didn’t try to fix it. The water crafts were warm. Who serves warm water without ice? There is an automatic 18% gratuity added for “ok” service. Don’t think I’d go back unless the food got better since it’s a restaurant so it’s kinda the point. But if it was just a bar this would be awesome to just hang out.

    As soon as we walked in the guy behind the counter was very friendly and made us feel welcomed which got us excited to be there. We had a wonderful experience here. Server was friendly and patient with us. Food was good. Atmosphere was fun and intriguing. My daughter's drink was served in a video game glass! My granddaughters fruity pebbles pancake was picture perfect! If you haven't been here you have to visit at least ONCE!

    I really like this place! You enter through a door hidden behind a soda machine and into a room of 80s nostalgia. It was cool seeing retro TVs everywhere. The drinks are served in nifty glasses like min ceramic arcade games and bathtubs. The food was incredible! I can’t remember the last time I had a burger that good. The grand finale was the milkshake dessert. Everything about this place had a wow factor (including the friendly and accommodating staff). I’ll be back and I also plan on being a regular for carry out.

    The building was run down. The ambience was poor. I had reservations and we still had to wait 15 minutes. The food was great. But, they need to make the space a bit more elegant. Not the bare minimum. Eventhough the food was great, I will not return.

    Understand why they charge 18 percent gratuity up front. That way your servers can slack off, ignore customer requests, because they're getting paid either way. Asked my server for silverware twice! Our food comes out before our utensils. Than when I asked the third time, I am told there is none, its being washed!? Cool for a 1 and done experience only. Food is alright, you're paying for the flashback of the 80's and 90's in a small dark diner feel.

    It is a cool concept. The design is really good. However it really ends there. The service is fair to average. This is why a 18% tip is automatically applied to your bill. The food is very subpar. I can not recommend any of it.
