Experience was fine. Wondering why OpenTable said my reservation didn’t qualify for points? What qualifies for points?

Table was set up for the group and were seated right away. The service was quick add helpful with the variety of the diners accommodated. All the food was delivered warm and quite quickly. Since this was a gathering of friends and family we wanted time to socialize and were able to do that, never felt rushed. The shrimp and grits were quite good. The chicken salad sandwich was about average. The burgers are quite good and went over well with the younger individuals of the group. Would recommend for a get together or lunch/dinner out.

Ganders has the best brunch in town- especially considering it’s low price. There are so many options on the buffet that it’s hard to choose! The made to order omelets and crepes were delicious as was everything else we tried- including fried chicken, waffles, numerous vegetables and salad. The hot brown casserole is the star of the buffet! This was our first visit but will certainly not be our last.

Great as always! No wait with Open Table! Even though we added one to our original party of six. The Louisiana Shrimp and Grits were excellent as always. My brother-in-law would really like to sub rice for the grits, but they don’t serve rice. (Food for thought)

Understaffed for a Saturday night and host and wait staff need better training. Kitchen was backed up and two simple orders took 40 minutes. Food was fine - reasonably priced. Restaurant was loud and had a chain restaurant feel. Nothing special enough about it to warrant a return visit.

7:00PM - Reservation of 4 on a Saturday. Table was ready upon our arrival. The restaurant was not completely full, the bar however was packed, and we were put in the far back corner. The inside temperature was rather warm. Our waitress was kind and friendly, very accommodating however she only came to the table a handful of times and we had to wait on beverage refills. The food was amazing and portions were well sized. We will go again.

We had a great experience yesterday. The table was set up and ready for us promptly at noon. Mary, who was our server was extremely efficient, courteous, accurate, timely, and just plain good.

Our table was served all at the same time which is extremely commendable. Food was presented very eye appealing and most important delicious. No complaints.


We will certainly recommend Gander's and will be back.


Thanks!!

Started with the wedge salad, which was wonderful. Then we had a pineapple/soy marinade rib eye. It was a little tough but great flavor. The baked sweet potato was wonderful with the special butter they place on top. I have had the Hot Brown and Chicken Livers here before and they are great. I recommend Gander for a nice meal.

Out of three people eating, no ones order came out correctly. The waitress was inattentive and slow to come check on us, so we sat for 10 minutes with our food infront of us with no silverware. The food was mediocre. Overall not a great experience.

My husband and I took our in-laws there for dinner. We had a great meal (all the food was good) and an awesome desert (Butterscotch Blondie). The menu was diverse, so there was something for everyone. The prices were reasonable but not great. We will be coming back again. I would recommend to a friend.

I'm the event planner guy. For a long run Gander has been on our brunch rotation. My group for the first time had a poor experience with the brunch. Gravy cold biskets hard. Etc. Food quality has slipped. I really hate that. More attention to operations please. By the way as of now Gander is off the rotation.

Gander was great as usual but Open Table was a problem. Something was wrong with the APP. I had to call to see if the restaurant got the Open Table reservation. Then We had to wait awhile for a table. And now it says I don’t get credit for the visit.

We went for their Valentine’s Day special and they ran out of several food items. They had a limited menu so this made selections more challenging. The waiter was average, nothing special or memorable at all. I left my purse there and they told me that it was not able to be located. My husband went to the table and found it immediately.
