    Hostess very nice, waitress however inattentive. Guess with 20% guaranteed tip at a buffet why overdo it. Thought food was good, desserts a level below appetizers and dinner. Worst part, $8 for a cup of coffee. Really annoying to give a $33+ tip for the service given. Don’t mind tipping 25% when staff delivers.

    Sevice was too slow, food came out so late. The place was not even packed… Ordered the only Prosecco on the menu, got charged double of what was on the menu, they fixed the issue but if I did not pay attention I would be screwed. Food quality was good but wait time killed it…

    The service was awful. We were one of two table in the restaurant. Each table had their own server. We were there for over 2 hours mostly waiting on our drinks and food. The waiter got our drink orders wrong. We had to find him when we needed anything. Then when it came time for the bills he kept getting it wrong and wouldn’t let us help him. We finally told the manager we would just pay the total bill instead of separating it-who knows if it was right. The food was really good but bc of the lack of service it’s not worth going back.

    Stompin GroundsResponded on September 11, 2022Dear Ashlee, Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the concerns with the service at your table and the lack of attentiveness to your needs. Your honest comments will be shared with our associates, and we will use them to improve going forward.

    Complete SURPRISE! We booked Stompin Grounds from OpenTable as it was a restaurant we hadn't been to before and it was rated 4.5 stars. When we arrived we were a bit hesitant because there weren't a ton of people there and it was quiet. Well, we were blown away by the food, variety and presentation. Drinks were coming from the bar at the Marriott bar and were SPOT ON. The bill was so reasonable, probably more affordable than most we've been to downtown and although it was lightly attended.....the place was QUIET. We had a party of 6 so we had a great time, could hear one another talk, and the place is very open with a bright atmosphere. Server was great, high energy but gave us space. This place is a secret....... HIGHLY recco and we WILL be back. You will not be disappointed.

    Stompin GroundsResponded on August 30, 2022Dear Guest, We are pleased to know our team did an excellent job taking care of you, and it will be our pleasure to pass along the compliments to the associate mentioned.

    The menu on the site and on open table didn’t match what we were giving at the restaurant. It was frustrating and confusing, especially when trying to plan for a big group. We didn’t stay so I don’t know what the food was like but based on the service we received just to get water and beer… I would guess it would match

    There really wasn't anything about the Stompin Ground that makes me want to go out of my way to experience ANYTHING they offer. For the price, I would much prefer to give to the poor and needy. It was embarrassing to pay what we were charged for what was offered. It's not easy to say but, we were snookerred.

    We made reservations for NY day brunch but then they cancelled it because of staffing, which is understandable these days. We chose to go ahead and just have the regular breakfast buffet. It was adequate but on the mediocre side. Bacon and grits were all I would say was “good.” Pancakes were cold and chewy, sausage gravy bad, potatoes were cold, hard and badly seasoned. It would not have been so disappointing if it wasn’t $30 a person. Not a good value at all. Won’t go back, though I might try some other holiday meal because They did a good job on Thanksgiving.

    Food was not hot, barely warm, however, there was a wide variety. The desert table was the highlight but the pumpkin pie was terrible! The biggest shocker was a glass of fountain soda was more than a beer and it wasn’t included in the price! Won’t go again and wouldn’t recommend it.
