    We were eating at The Mecca before seeing a concert at the Fiserv. We had reservations. When we arrived, we were seated immediately only to sit there, ignored, for over 20 minutes. We had to go and find the manager to even get a server to come to our table. Once we finally had a server, he was nice but VERY scattered. He never brought us water, even though it had been requested. We had to ask for silverware. He brought out three dishes but couldn't find the fourth dish. It was just a very unpleasant experience.

    We went to Mecca after my son’s graduation from UWM. Appetizers were good but out of the 6 of us only one person enjoyed their meal. We sent 4 back. It truly looked and tasted like high school cafeteria food. The manager was accommodating and removed the 4 meals, This honestly ruined the joyful mood we were in from the graduation. Please bring in a renowned chef to revamp the menu.

    We went to The Mecca for graduation with 10 family members and although I am sympathetic to staff shortages…. This restaurant had 5-6 servers/waiters hanging out and chit chatting with eachother and tables were not getting served. In addition, they must’ve run out of lettuce for nachos and decided that wet coleslaw was an easy solution. Yea…. Coleslaw on NACHOS. And we got a pub pretzel that was rock hard. After complaining to the manager a handful of times, not much was corrected so we left and ate elsewhere.

    The food and beverage service was good. However, our waitress didn’t check on us for over 30 minutes. We were there to watch the Bucks playoff game #7 so there was a controlled crowd and therefore wasn’t super busy. It’s definitely a fun place to watch sporting events!

    Our server was amazing but the rest of it was awful. Getting screamed at by the security when I paid $40 to get in the place and he kept telling me the wrong information at the door. Super unprofessional and unorganized, I love the mecca usually but wont be spending money again to come watch the game, having some guy yell at you and telling you you can’t come in when you paid money to be in there? then another man had to escort us in from the fiserv forum because the security doesn’t know what’s going on. I also was told the watch party was outside for the bucks game so I was high confused when we just got seated inside, food and drinks were good but the lack of organization is just awful experience.

    Had to request a server after 15 minutes. Ordered 4 appetizers and after 20 minutes we learned 2 were not available, so we ordered 1 more to find out 10 minutes later that is was not available. Drinks still did not arrive after the 1 appetizer did arrive.

    Nearly everything about our dinner and watch party was great, but the music was just too loud. We couldn't hear one another from one end of the table to another. (Booths overlooking the big screen).

    Food was cold when it got to the table… ordered food at the end of the first quarter didn’t receive food until literally 2 minutes left in the fourth quarter, which was terrible to be paying a 285.00 bill. Overall good experience.

    Unfortunately, our dining experience was not what we had hoped it be when choosing where to dine before the Bucks game. Once being seated, it took the waitress 10+ minutes to greet us and another 40 minutes before our beverages were brought out. Once our food arrived 2/4 meals were prepared incorrectly, forgetting chicken, dressing, etc. Biscuit served with the salad tasted a week old it was so dry. Disappointing.

    The food is just ok. The drinks are expensive and they add gratuity to a 3 person check. I also thought I'd get the $15, I paid to reserve the table, towards my check. It just wasn't really worth it. All I can say is that everyone was nice,I got I pic with Bango, and our server was attentive and really good. Great atmosphere during a game too. I wouldn't watch a game there again though.

    Had a great time enjoying the game. It was a playoffs game so I understand it being busy. However it took about 10 minutes after sitting down just to have our waitress introduce herself. But she did apologize and say it was only her fourth day. So we were completely understanding. We ordered VIZZY and they were completely out of all five flavors. So we got black cherry white claws, that were flat. And then ordered two red Bulls that were warm. The food was good, and the energy was good. Would definitely go back, but not during a sports event.
