The food was excellent! The server was nice and knowledgeable but service was very slow! At 7pm on a Saturday night, the restaurant was never more than 25-50% full. I would go back because the food was so good!

We had a fantastic experience. The food and drinks were amazing. The sea bass was one of the best I have had. The Watters Brambelberry was very yummy! Our server, Michella was probably one of the best servers I have ever had. She was personable, fun, and made sure that we had a wonderful experience!

Service was slow. Too much emphasis on jalapeno in too many items. Food served nearly cold and over priced for the overall experience. This was our second visit. Not as good as the first visit and we had hoped it had improved from first visit but it had not.
Not very likely to come back.

The staff was great. Restaurant wouldn’t serve any alcohol on Sunday until noon, despite food being ordered. Maybe it’s a city specific ordinance? Food was overpriced. Flavor was good but not worth it. Didn’t hate it, but wouldn’t go back.

Enjoyed a fabulous dinner with good friends. Appetizer was the shiner bock beer bread which is not to be missed!! So good. Salad was the southwest Caesar- so delicious and fun presentation. Totally unique. Dinner was sea bass for me and I wanted to lick the plate. My husband had beef tenderloin with Brussels sprouts and said it was in the top 3 steaks he’s eaten. Service was a little slow but wonderful knowledgeable waiter. Great wine list too. Will definitely be back.

Quality of food was below expectations the crab salad had a fried skeleton of a crab on top.

The salmon was average, I have had better.

The late afternoon sun was shining directly in my eyes, very annoying. The waiter said they are working on it . Otherwise the restaurant was very clean with great ambiance.

For the price I felt we could get a better value at some other high end restaurants in the area.

Like any of Stephan Piles restaraunts the food was outstanding. The location, just down the street from the house was ideal, but not really the ambiance I expected after being at his other places. Very open with the tables and booths in a large open space. Only a few booths being tucked away; however, there was a whole other side not open to us. Overall, great place and we will be back!!!

Our server Mischella was wonderful. She was so friendly and took care of our needs. Definitely, gave her opinion on what she thought was great to order which I like, since I hadn't eaten there before. My only complaint was the patrons who bought in small children who were loud. When I go to an upscale restaurant. I don't like to hear winey children. I would definitely recommend this place. I would love to see it find a home in Allen.

An overall poor dining experience:
Walking in, the place smells amazing. I was very excited to enjoy a great meal and was disappointed with just about every aspect of Stampede 66.
Drinks came out after 10-15 minutes of ordering them, which was after our apps came out.
-Cocktails were not adequately stirred/shaken and brought out without a straw/stirrer - which lead to it tasting like three separate drinks. Half way through I thought, "Oh, this is what is should taste like. "
Entree was good, large portions but nothing amazing.
Desert (Chocolate Pecan Cake)
-The desert sat on our table for 5 minutes because we didn't have forks to eat it with. It looked like it had been sitting out since the day before.
-While it was sitting there, I felt the skillet it came in and both the skillet and desert were a little over room temperature. The desert fell out of the skillet like a brick (all in one piece), obviously it had not been prepared anytime recently.
-When the server came back (still, no forks) I asked the server, "is this supposed to be warm or cold, because it is neither one." He took the desert back, we requested he NOT bring us another one, just our check.
-Still, no forks....
-The server took the desert back but left it on our bill.
Coffee order was incorrect and server didn't understand what is should be. If the menu says it should have whipped cream, then the drink should come out with whipped cream, which it didn't. He later came out with a can of whipped cream and mentioned it was the only whipped cream he could fine and gave us the last of the spray can in a cup.

Either they don't have a kitchen management system or it was down, because the chef was sorting the orders on a counter top and working the kitchen from the dining area.

It was nice to have an upscale dinning experience so close to home. Were tiered of the usual chain restaurants that dot the suburban landscape.

While the food was delicious both for dinner and leftovers, it was pretty expensive.

Once in awhile place or good place to meet future in laws.

I was a big fan of the original Stampede 66 in Dallas, but this is not Stampede 66. The original was special in several ways that made it a memorable experience for visitors from out of state, but this incarnation is a pale imitation. The food was okay. Many of the original menu items are there, but not served with style and creativity. The famous fried-chicken that used to be served in a bucket, is now on a regular plate. The decor and ambiance is spartan, boring and uninspired - nothing like the original. The service was amateurish and tentative. The restaurant doesn’t have its own bar, and bar service from the Delta Hotel bar was slow and gone is the fabulous liquid nitrogen-cooled margarita cart. I ordered a domestically-brewed Mexican beer and they were out. Who runs out of bottled beer on a Saturday night? Since this restaurant is located in a convention center hotel, they can probably stay in business without repeat customers from the area, but is not doing the Stephen Pyles brand any favors.

Our group thought the various food items we had were too spicy or had too many flavors going on in one dish. Two of us were surprised as this was our second time there and we again. Ordered the side of "pickles" on the menu as we liked them before. This time the "pickles" came out and were two hidden bread pickles at the bottom of the jar with jalapeños and pickled okra stuffed on top. These were extremely spicy! This ruined the entire meal for one person as it upset her stomach and she couldn't get the "fire" or taste out of her mouth to enjoy her chicken. Most of our party agreed they would not return.

Depends whether I would recommend to a friend. Based upon their food palate. If you love the Stephan Pyles taste, you will thoroughly enjoy Stampede 66 for the food - not the service and possibly location. Bay of Fundy Salmon was seasoned exactly as I expected and was very well prepared and served as was my companions chicken fried buffalo. Drinks were lackluster and not a varied selection of innovative bar drinks. Wine by the glass was a nice selection. Did not care for the huge screen above my head that continued to flash light high and low. It is still a hotel venue for better or worse. I will eat there again because of the convenience and food, but hoping service improves.
