    Service was slow. Drinks took a long time. Our waitress forgot about us to take our food order. We had to flag her down. Food was good - atmosphere was great - I will give it another try.

    We waiting 20 minutes for our waitress to even come by and then 45 minutes for our food, which was mediocre at best. We were never offered refills, the waitress never checked in on us/ let us know we’d be waiting forever, and we had to request our check after sitting there with our jackets on ready to leave. I’d hate to see how bad it is when they’re actually busy. We were late to our show at fiserv so definitely do not recommend if you have anywhere to be.

    Made reservations weeks in advance in order to get a table at Mecca for the away Bucks game. When we arrived they sat us in the very back stuffed in the corner with 2 TVs - both playing non sports items, which is not what we came for or what they are known for. After we asked them to change the channel they did. Service was decent, food was good.

    Granted, it was NYE…. But thought it would be stocked and ready for dinner and game. Nope! Table lighting in booths is truly blinding, I really can’t believe we are the first to complain about that. We did get moved to another table. But- immediately told by server that they are out of cheese curds and pretzels. Then there was a last call for kitchen at about 8pm. And menu is shorter than usual and canned beer. What happened?? Our server was sweet and apologetic, not his fault at all. Someone really dropped the ball here. We planned to be there all night for the game. Moved to a very cozy bar in walking distance at half time. This should’ve been stated on website that The Mecca wasn’t planning on being fully functioning. Sorry, not planning on visiting again.

    We had a wonderful server who was hampered by lack of bartender support and kitchen support. Took way too long for food. Not enough staff support when place is packed. This was Lunchtime and took over 75 minutes to get food. Unacceptable when also attending event at Fiserv

    We arrived at 11:15am to eat before a 1pm game. We ordered at 11:30 and never got our food before we had to leave for the game. We went into the stadium and the same food was available there and we were able to get through the line in less than 10 minutes.

    Food took a long time to arrive. Our server did a good of tracking it down once it was brought to her attention that we had a game to go to. Was not as loud as last visit which everyone at the table commented on and we liked it so much better now. We enjoyed not having to scream over the background music.

    Beautiful ambience. Food was good but limited menu. We waited a fairly long time before it arrived. Noting that the place was not busy at all, despite a Packer game being on, Service was OK. Shortly after being seated and meeting our server, we were not impressed with our server, as we were ready to actually walk out. However, as interactions continued things got better. Wasn’t OK experience experience not very impressed. Can’t say we would be there again or recommend it. It’s too bad because looks like some quality time and thought went into the ambience and decor, as well as the very large screen television.

    The service was exceptional, attentive, but not over the top. The burger was just OK, they don't ask you how you want it cooked at it arrived very medium well done so it was pretty dry. The side salad and fries were good.

    You need bar rescue! It should not take 45 minutes to receive a simple appetizer and another 45 minutes for a sandwich. Your simplified menu should expedite service. Had the restaurant been packed it might have explained the delay, but no this was not the case. There were open tables. When inquiries were made regarding the delay the server offered to cancel our order vs checking with the kitchen. Must be a known issue. Great location in relation to Fiserv- if looking for a drink before an event would recommend, but if time is limited skip the food!

    This was hands down the worst dining experience I have had in a very long time. The hostess was incredibly rude, not paying attention and messing around with her coworkers on their cell phones. We then had to wait forever for our food and it came out ice cold. Our waitress was the only bright spot as she fought through a terrible situation. So sad as this place used to be fantastic, great place to go before or during a Bucks game. Whoever has taken over management has run this restaurant into the ground and should be incredibly embarrassed. We will not go back and will absolutely be telling anyone who asks to avoid.

    Had reservations. Was seated in the bar at a high top table. Which made for an uncomfortable time. People were standing around our table conversing rather loudly, as it was hard to talk and hear amongst ourselves. The people standing around us continued to use our table to place their drinks on, even after asking them not to. Our server was a bit slow on bringing our drinks, and food took about 35mins to be served. Food was hot and delicious!

    Went to watch the Bucks play on the big screen tv. Arrived on time and seated immediately. Drinks served in plastic cups. Had appetizers that were good but took over 40 minutes to get to us after ordering. Our waiter paid little attention to us and we had to flag him down several times throughout our 3 hour stay. Iffy on whether we’d return because there are so many other options working 3 blocks.

    We were seated upstairs and then after about an hour, our waitress told us we had to move downstairs because they were closing off the upstairs area... I didn't understand why they hadn't sat us downstairs in the first place, considering the place was basically empty when we arrived. I've never had to move tables before so it was odd. Then the second server barely came to assist us with anything. Half their menu wasn't available because they ran out on things... It was a Wednesday afternoon... When the food finally arrived, it was mediocre. There are many sports bars around Fiserv Forum that are worth the wait and the service is better than this place. I would save your $30 and go somewhere else.

    Reserved 2 floor and when arriving after 1 1/2 hr drive they said upstairs was already reserved for some group. Lights over tables way too bright. Waitress very nice but didn’t check in enough and for being a very slow night it was a long wait for food. Food was good though! For as hyped as this place comes off they could maybe try to keep that atmosphere up even on quiet nights. Friendly advice otherwise it was a neat place!

    Went to the Mecca with my family, 12 of us for a birthday and to catch a bucks game. Staff was friendly and accommodating, waitress was sweet and attentive. We had a great experience and a fun time! Only think I didn’t like was NO PARKING. Due to it being a home bucks game we paid $35 for parking had to walk a few blocks.

    Super convenient location for pre-concert meal. We made reservations and were seated immediately and ordered and ate in less than 45 minutes. They ran out of bread so I had to adjust my order, but the BBQ burger was delicious. The insanely large screen above the ball was perfect for keeping tabs on the Bucks game while I was eating. Definitely recommend for pre-event spot when headed to Fiserv.

    Ordered the turkey club, menu said there were waffle fries, there were no waffle fries, there were only crinkle fries. The turkey club had hardly any of garlic aïoli. It took the waiter a very long time to come back to ask how everything was, explained there was hardly any sauce on the sandwich, asked for more sauce, by the time he came back with the sauce we were done and but ready to leave. Was also here on Thursday and was in a rush since the food took so long, by the time I realize we were charged for onion rings and never got them I had already paid for the bill and wasn’t about to ask for a refund because the food had already taken 45 minutes to come out and we had to go. I purposely made reservations early enough (4:30) prior to the Bucks game so we had plenty of time, but still seem to take a very long time to get her food.
