Buffalo Chicken
$13.95
choice of grilled or fried, red onion, tomato and shredded lettuce on a South Union Bakery bun

My husbands sandwich came with ranch on it.
After he asked during ordering no blue cheese or anything like that. Told no.

Sandwich came out with a big glob of ranch on it.
Told waiter he took the sandwich back and 20 min later his sandwich came out while the rest of the group was done.
No real apology or any compensation.

The menu needs to say ranch if it has ranch on it.

This was our first time here. Service for drinks was very slow. Bartender seemed to be more interested in visiting with those at the bar than taking care of diners. My husband had Fish tacos but barely had any fish in them. I had the Chicken Penne. Seemed pretty high priced for entree only and no salad.

We were seated on time. Had a booth which was good for private conversation. The waitress was very prompt, pleasant and attentive. She was always on top of everything without interrupting our discussions. The food was very creative. It is a handy location not having to deal with parking meters. I did have trouble using the bar code parking passes upon exiting and ended up having to use my credit card to get out or the back parking lot. That is an awkward method.

Fabulous food... our server seemed a little harried. We barely finished our food and she was bringing our checks. We did not have to ask for separate checks, tho.

Great server and quiet enough setting to have conversations. Food was really good. My sandwich was way too salty but I should have realized it would be, since it was smothered in cheese sauce. We will go back.

We love Teddy Maroon's. The best is it can be your local bar hang out, and if a crowd shows up you can move right over to the restaurant side and enjoy a great meal. This isn't dive bar food, it's legit! Matthew Mosley is always around to add a little extra to every customer and the team there is second to none!!

My wife and I have high standards for food (we eat well at home) and finding satisfying food out is a challenge for us. First time at Teddy Maroon’s and we were both extremely happy with our food and the overall experience.

Excellent lunch. Bright contemporary space, quality ingredients, plates are simple but well presented. Cornflake chicken tenders are great. Piping hot doughnut holes for dessert were a treat.

This was our first time here and it was a great experience. We made it just in time for happy hour which is a great deal if you're looking for apps and drinks. We ordered the nachos with italian sausage, the shiseido peppers and the mushrooms. Loved the nachos! We got the half portion and they were amazing! I felt like the portion size for the peppers was too big. The mushrooms were okay. They had alot of breading and we didn't get enough of the aioli (which was good) that came with it. Definitely will be back to try the tator tots. The cocktails were great!!!

I heard wonderful things about this place so I was excited to check it out. However I left a bit disappointed. I had the Steak de Burgo. I asked for medium rare but it arrived medium well. The garlic sauce and the potatoes were quite tasty but the meat was a tad bland.

My date had salmon and raved about it so maybe I just had an “off” dish. I will probably return and give them another shot.

This restaurant has a fun, energetic vibe. I've had the Brussels sprouts and enjoyed them very much as an appetizer and also have had a burger here which was very good. New Year's Eve was all in all a good experience. Our waiter, John, has waited on our table before and I think he gives excellent service. The drinks we ordered were perfect, a Cosmopolitan for me and a 7 and 7 for my friend. Unfortunately the food that we ordered was not as great as I've experienced in the past. I had the steak deburgo and although it was presented well the texture was mushy and the meat rather flavorless. We had chicken tenders as an appetizer and they were hot and cooked but the breading was too thick and detracted from the dish. I envied my companions grilled salmon as it was beautifully presented on a bed of Al Dente, colorful vegetables and apparently was quite tasty. I will definitely go back to Teddy Maroons but my meal choices will be different next time.

Beer and wine selection .... next to nothing to choose from.
To their credit they are revamping the food and drink menus, but during the holidays .... not such a wise decision??

Had the spinach + Brussels sprouts with grilled salmon. Dressing was sticky, salmon overcooked.

Husbands tater tots were EXCELLENT.

Have eaten here many times, but will try new places in the future.

Sorry, the environment is a very nice one, and staff pleasant!

Nick the bartender is very good, good service. Miss the fish and chips they used to sell. New menu is more limiting. Food was good, like the chicken tenders. Prime Rib sandwich ok. Hope they bring some of their good stuff back. Good to see meat loaf back. Good ambience

The food was fabulous though I felt misled by very tiny type on the build a burger that said two of the columns were a dollar each added on which was not clear because the type was so small. Service was OK but given the fact that they were not packed I was surprised it was not more attentive. That is their usual standard.

It wasn’t horrible, but my hamburger was more of a grease burger. No flavor. Seemed like if they just salted it before they cooked it, it may have been better.

We had a 7:15 reservation and we were seated immediately. Ordered drinks and an appetizer. Appetizer came quick but still no drinks. My drink came after app was gone. But ok, it was a specialty drink and it was delish. Husband drink never came. Went to bar to see where it was and oops made wrong drink. He ordered a gin martini. Not hard. They apologized and quickly came back with martini and boy was it nasty. A friend also ordered martini during dinner. Drink arrived after we finished eating. Food was delish. All 4 of us enjoyed our food. Friend left martini because it too was gross plus we were already done eating! I’ll go back again but next time no alcoholic beverages!!!

Horrible service. Had the flag the waitress down anytime we needed anything. Had to constantly remind her to bring these we’d already asked for. The only other table she had was having the same issues. Food was ok but not great. Overall I was disappointed based on all the great things I had heard.
