It’s a fun place! Little on the noisy side if you are looking for a quiet place, this ain’t that place. Food was good!

The waitress took forever to come back with coffee refills even after being asked a few times. We never received our requested ketchup.

The theme/atmosphere is great. We made a reservation and didn’t have to wait long. However, super dark inside (needed flashlight for menu), but that’s because it’s a tiki theme. Also, hot. No A/C. They were very busy, but the service was decent. Got our food/drinks very fast. And the food was great.

Great food, drinks, and ambience for a group of friends to get together. Watch your drink glasses for deposit though. We had to switch tables because it was too hot inside...we took our drink glasses along to a table on the patio and apparently our server didn't realize that, so we got charged for 2 drink glasses and even though we tried to correct the issue before we left, we could not because our server had left.

Everything was so perfect! I hosted a bachelorette party for my best friend and it could not have been a better experience! Our food and drinks were wonderful and the service was outstanding! Our servers Jordan and Gabby were amazing and so accommodating for our large group of 18! They made it hassle-free for us by giving us separate checks at the end of the night which we all SO appreciated. Thank you for making the night so special!

Excellent food, great service, fun atmosphere. The brown sugar babies were absolutely incredible. The Thailand island pizza was spectacular. Weird combination of ingredients that really do work well together.

It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon, and we sat on the deck overlooking the river. We were unaware that this particular section of the patio didn’t include table service. However, the server and manager said “no problem” we’ll serve you in that section - which was really nice. Our server, Betty, was great! Very attentive, a bit irreverent (which was completely appropriate and welcomed) and wonderful! She made our experience even more fun.

The weather wasn't great but we were still able to sit outside with the tables with fire. I hope to come again when it's nice out and sit out further on the patio and be able to see more of the view.

Our dining experience was overall great. Really fun atmosphere and the waitstaff were all very knowledgeable and helpful with any questions about the menu and offerings. One ting that stood out in my mind is I had made a reservation for me and my 3 friends in my name. They arrived just a few minutes before I did and were sitting on the river patio where I had requested in my reservation. Upon entering the restaurant I told the greeter hostess my reservation name and she told me just go out and find a table anywhere. I asked if any of my party was there yet and she said, no one checked in under my reservation... I even described my two friends. She said, no didn't see them. I thought that was strange being I was a few minutes late and knew my friends were indeed there (they had texted they were there). SO-- I went ahead on and there they were on the patio sitting at a table. I asked if they checked in and they said yes they had under my name and was told to grab a table anywhere. I asked if they checked in with the same gal I did and they said yes they had.
Now, I would think that if it indeed was the same person at the hostess greeting station, they should know what the heck they are doing, at least- remember- someone checking in within 15 mins prior to the next inquiry--especially with the reservation name given to them --- That looked really bad for your establishment. This was 4pm on a friday, SEpt 6th. It was NOT busy.
Thanks.

Food was ok, not like a wow/amazing. Drinks were not impressive. We were asked to leave when it was only a few minutes past 11pm when the restaurant closes at midnight on a Tuesday.

Suzi's is a themed restaurant, of course, so to have a well-done design should be a given. They don't disappoint. We were there for dinner and the band. Both were fantastic. Our only suggestion is to allow at least some kind of food (appetizers?) upstairs in the lounge. We would have easily spent an extra $30-40 . What a FUN place!!!!

We wentwith our adult kids, hoping to sit on the riverside patio. The wait was long somwe ate in the dimly lit interior. We used our phone flashlights to read the menu. If you enjoy $14 hamburgers, this is the place to go. I doubt we will go again.

Slooooooow service. Very disappointing. Drinks were small and overpriced but the food was pretty tasty. When another server finally brought our food, they missed one entree. When our regular waitress showed up,she asked us where the missing entree was. I felt silly telling her that we were hoping she could check. If we had gotten to fit outside it might have been worth it.

We had a large group and had made a reservation. However, I believe they were short staffed because our reservation was at noon and our food order wasn't taken until nearly 1:00. We had to rush to eat our food so we could make it to a 1:30 appointment. I had to ask for our check. While the food is good and it is a fun atmosphere, the very slow service made it an ok experience.

The food was fantastic but the service could have used a little work. We weren't greeted in a very friendly manner and our server took a bit to check in on us. It wasn't terribly busy so I'm not sure why this happened but it was also our first time there so I am unsure if this is how it normally is. Overall it wasn't a bad experience and I would go back again for the drinks and crab dip for sure.

We had a great time celebrating our friend's bachelorette party with dinner and drinks at Psycho Suzi's! The servers were so friendly and the setting was really fun. We also appreciated that it was no problem to split the bill up 10 ways, that was the best. Will certainly be back, thanks again to the whole Suzi's crew!

The setting is wonderful, right on the river. The ambiance and decor is great. Fun. And if drinks were my only reason to be there, it might have been good. However, I went to eat and I don’t drink. The food was a joke. I ordered an Asian salad for 13.95. It was supposed to have edamame and walnuts, along with salad and dressing. Nothing fancy, but also not a side salad. I got a bowl with some lettuce and dressing and 6 candies walnuts and 11 edamame. When asked, the waitress this is a common complaint and did bring a bit more of each, as I was taking the last of my bites of the salad. The service was slow, to say the least. While she was friendly when she was there, being there was the missing component. All in all, because I was with family it was a fine time. I wouldn’t return unless I drank and that the reason we were there.

I would go back for drinks but the food service was awful. They dint even bring out one sandwich until we were done eating and ready to pay out. They never even gave a care that the food was so delayed. Would ahve complained but really just wanted to get out of there.

Great vibe - fun exotic Tiki-style surroundings, large deck on the Mississippi River. Shady cool spots for a hot sunny day. Our server Soraya was friendly, helpful and checked in on us a number of times to make sure we were happy. Brunch menu was good - foods well-prepared. Great looking bloody-Mary bar, fun Tiki drinks. For the price I would have loved some fresh fruit with my omelette and hash browns, but, I left a completely clean plate. All ages at brunch, couples, families, groups, all enjoying the vibe.
