What made the entire experience extremely uncomfortable was the fact that our waitress, who was an older Hispanic lady with a brown tint to her hair color started rushing us to leave as we where both enjoying our meal and conversation. Our waiter must have left for break because when she came back, she made the comment "wow you guys are still here? I left and came back and your still sitting there" she even continued to say that "you all would need to leave soon so I can have my booth back".
During our meal, she started to use a small vacuum directly by our table to signal us to leave. Her gestures where so outrageous that my colleague asked if she wanted us to leave, in which she replied "no, but I will need that booth back soon" this was such a shame to hear especially since there was no one waiting for our seat. Another comment was made when we where eating and the waitress kept rushing to take our plates, when we asked if there was a problem, she stated "I need to get these dishes to the dishwasher before they leave, I'm trying to clear off my tables"
As a stated in the beginning, the food and atmosphere was great, however the service was extremely unprofessional and had a disgusting nagging vibe. No matter how good the food is, this type of unprofessional behavior alone will deter even your best guests. If there is an issue with the dish room being understaffed, I know several college students who would love to work there part time.
Please address these concerns with your employee so that she does not continue to deter patrons from you place of business.
It's a Kansas City staple! Old style restaurant w/ pictures hanging on the wall from over the years as well as stuffed chickens. Food is great, it's family style so come hungry.
I don’t frequent Strouds often but This is my second time going to this location. I have to say ok food but the customer service is lacking. When your waitress shows a personality to those around you but rude upon numerous times to your table, never ok. I think I will stick to the north location from now on when I do go.
Our 3 meals were chicken fingers, dark meat, and mixed. All were done just right and plenty to eat with mashed potatoes, green beans, and cinnamon rolls. It is a craving one gets every so often that brings you back for some good food.
Very disappointed. Chicken was under cooked, we thought KFC is much better.
From the moment we walked through the front, we knew we shouldn't go. It has such a horrible stinch walking into the building. The service was horrible and the food left a lot to be desired - compared what it "used" to be! I was up sick all night after we ate there. Even the restroom was disgusting dirty and stinky! I wouldn't recommend this location to anyone!
Chicken was moist but not a lot of flavor. Waitress was awesome though and having never been there she was very helpful.
I have ate at the NKC strouds allot. And the food is amazing. This Fairway strouds just seems ok. Chicken pieces are small not big pieces of chicken. The chicken legs where very small. But the prices didn’t shrink. Hope they go back to the old standards of quality and overall sizes.
Stroud's has been a favorite for at least 40 years. It's always great - and a special place to go to just for an everyday meal. Nothing fancy ... but you know you will always have a satisfying experience.
Great food and service as usual. The waitress was outstanding - she pointed out the happy hour drink specials and took extra effort to ensure we had a good meal. I only get to KC once per year, and dinner at Strouds is always a treat.
The food was fantastic! However, we had to take a ridiculously early reservation time because they were "booked". But they were never busy the whole time we were there. It wasn't even full so I don't know why the reservations were so limited. We never would have gone so early and that was inconvenient.
I can't say enough about the quality, the service or the value.
We've been going to Stouds for many years. The menu and taste of food remains consistant. It probably isn't healthy, but certain is appealing on special occasions.
Stroud's is delicious! We went for Father's Day but sometimes go just because we can! The food is hot, gravy is outstanding, love the choice of potatoes and the refills. The cinnamon rolls seemed different but maybe that's a quality control issue. Not much for ambiance/atmosphere but there were a lot of families just enjoying a meal together! If you don't want to fry your own chicken, this is the place to go!
Chicken was very, very greasy and lacked flavor. Definitely needed seasonings. Everything else tasted excellent! Portions are large so think about splitting a dinner.
Food was delicious, but took a while to come out. You can’t rush a piece of pan fried chicken, so if you are in a hurry maybe order something else
Stroud's fried chicken and food never disappoints. And the cinnamon rolls are to-die-for. The only reason I gave the ambiance a good is because on a 90+ degree day the A/C was having a hard time keeping up and the dining room was probably in at least the upper 70s. A little warm!
The food was great, but the restaurant was hot.. like no air conditioning hot which made the whole evening pretty unpleasant
Reservations are meaningless at this restaurant.
Always have loved Stroud's pan fried chicken and gizzards. Their sides are delicious as well. The gravy is great on the mashed potatoes and for dipping the gizzards in. The food is very consistent and delicious. They have an option now to order individualized meals versus family style, you get smaller portions of the sides, but the cost is less as well.
We opted for the family style, it costs more, but you get larger portions, and the food is so good, we want to take the leftovers home. The only downside is that they are now rationing the gravy for some reason. We had used most of the gravy provided with our meal, and we asked for more gravy to go with our leftovers (probably half the meal of 3). The waitress said she was told to cut back on giving extra gravy, so the to-go gravy container was only about half full. It wasn't enough to go with the leftovers, and I ended up eating most of the leftover mashed potatoes without gravy. In hindsight, I should have offered to buy more gravy. I can't believe that rationing gravy is really going to increase their bottom line that much.
Birthday dinner for family of seven. Favorite spot for chicken served family style.
When I made the reservation on line there was a question about occasion which was our 44th anniversary. That's as far as that went.
Not a mention from anyone.
We got there at scheduled time.
Waitress took our order. Soup and salad arrived soon. It took 45 minutes to get food. During our wait
Other people arrived, got their order,
Ate and then left. This was a special
Occasion. Nothing about our visit

I heard from many people that Strouds had the best fried chicken in town. With all due respect to those folks, they were wrong. With what we spent, I'd rather go to KFC and order a feast of superior fried goodness or spend a fraction of the cost for said goodness. Or, make a 200+ mile roundtrip Cannonball Run to Pittsburg, Kansas, to Chicken Mary's for the best fried chicken I've ever had--they do it right.
In a nutshell, Strouds pan-fried chicken had no flavor and I wish I could regurgitate the food and get a redo on my lunch. The servers and cooks executed well; the problem lies with the corporate (KC Hopps) vision of a fried chicken place.
My family ordered the All Dark Entrée ($17.95) that had two legs and two thighs; the Two Piece Saturday Special ($12.95) that had one breast and one leg; both entrees came with a house salad or homemade chicken noodle soup, green beans, and a choice of potatoes (mashed, baked, or fries)--we got the mashed and fries; and two orders of the kids chicken fingers ($6.95). As you can see in the pictures, the batter had little-to-no discernable herbs nor spices, which rendered the their signature dishes as a bland disappointment. The soup and salad were fine, neither good nor bad. We each took a bite of the green beans and realized they were from a can--I can still taste the can's protective lining from those soggy, mushy, soylent green things. The mashed potatoes were also fine, neither good nor bad. However the fries were soggy and unseasoned. How does a fried chicken place mess up French fries?! All you have to do is fry potatoes to a crisp, then add salt. The chicken fingers were cooked well and had more flavor than the star attractions, so order those so you have a better chance of enjoying your meal and save some money. Each entrée is finished off with a cinnamon roll and to my surprise, it's more of a cinnamon coffee cake... With no icing! The combination of cinnamon and icing is what makes it a perfect dessert.
We discovered recently that a friend had never been to Stroud's, so we had to remedy that immediately. We ordered chicken not-wings (like nuggets/bites tossed in buffalo sauce), chicken fingers, an all dark meal, chicken fried steak, and broiled pork chops, and EVERYTHING was delicious.
Now, I do feel like I should mention the cinnamon rolls because it came up that they are not, in fact, cinnamon rolls. This is true. They are more like a cinnamon sugar encrusted dinner roll. And they are DELICIOUS but they are not cinnamon rolls. Once we agreed on that point, we could all move on to unanimously decide that they were probably the best part of the meal and we wanted another basket of them to go.
I been to strouds in the past, but my most recent visit was just fair. Chichen was dry and not moist inside at all. However, the cocktail I had was great.
The interior was delapidated. We all sat in a both where every seat was like being in a hole. The food made up for it. I would recommend ordering one more piece than you think you want, because it’s that good. I would go back in a heartbeat, just not to this location.
I was surprised that they were not prepared for the number of guests that were there. They ran out of glasses and cinnamon rolls, but had more made by the end of our meal.
Love their food.
Not sure how to rate this, not my best experience at this restaurant. We were seated right by the dirty dish station, not very appetizing. Took a long while to get our order in, water glasses were plunked down on the table with no comment from waitress, rather curt when she took our order. Later she warmed up and became much more pleasant, she stated that they had been swamped earlier in the day (Mother's Day), which I understood, but.....we had to tolerate the poor attitude when we first got there. This restaurant is getting older and starting to show its age, does not look clean anymore. Food was good, service ended up okay, but not too sure I will go back. Sad to me as I have always enjoyed Stroud's.
Yummy food as always
Didn't need the reservation we made as we arrived early and a number of tables were available. Casual old-style diner atmosphere, attentive service, food was great. Would always go back to Stroud's.
Two of the four had chicken, and we both got sick.
This will probably be the last visit it Stroud’s.
Outstanding food and great service. I have been a few times and the food and service are always on par. Highly recommend and you will not leave hungry.
Great waitress, food is what I would consider comfort food. Overall good experience.
Not impressed by food, had heard it was a great place for chicken. Service was great, but food was very mediocre.
Service was mediocre. Food was bland. Was told it is closing in 9 months, so maybe that is why.
This is one of my favorite places. The food & service never disappoint!
food was delicious. we loved our waitress. we had her a few weeks ago and she is friendly. love the family country feel. the chicken breast were a little dry, but the potatoes and gravy, and cinn. rolls more than made up for it. will be in k.c. again this week, and will definitely stop there.
Still the best pan fried chicken
Great Fried Chicken everything is served homestyle!
