Tillman's Roadhouse - Dallas Ratings and Reviews
Gavin Watson is not associated with this account so not sure why his name is here. I had made the reservation but when we arrived they couldn't find my reservation under Cyndi Bishop. They had a table and we were able to eat there like we had hoped. It wasn't until today that I saw this other person's name in all my emails.
This isn't the first time we've eaten at Tillman's and would recommend it!
We received excellent service from our waitress and the food was tasty. We arrived at the restaurant on the early side & it wasn't too busy yet - during that time we could hold a conversation & visit. As the restaurant filled with people the noise level became unbearable. My friend & I were screaming across the table from one another. We went outside to sit on their front patio and continue our conversation. Once we moved to the outside area absolutely nobody came out there to check on us. I had to go in and buy drinks & carry them outside myself. We could have used a glass of water or later a second drink but it appeared that no waitstaff were assigned to the outdoor area at all. So here is my mixed review: great service inside and good food. No acoustics so be ready for a loud dining experience if it's busy. Don't sit outside or you will be abandoned.
Our food and drinks were tasty, but the waitstaff was offbeat. Clearing drinks that weren't finished, taking 15 minutes to pour wine only to tell us they were out of the wine we chose and that the other rose was even better (at $4 more a glass it should've been). Wine finally arrived with sediment in the glass. Waitress was hovering at inappropriate times and then nowhere to be found when we were ready to order various things. All in all, I would go back but I'd sit at the bar 😉
Food was wonderful. Everyone at our table ordered the thing everyone else can't wait to order the next time they are at Tillman's. My entree was great .. but next time I am ordering what my wife had on this occasion .. and visa versa. In other words .. everything on the menu is fantastic!
Waiter was new and did not know menu. My feedback would be to implement a training handbook and have daily/weekly tests before releasing waiter alone on the floor. Or have a shadowing process in place.
Not happy with having to wait over 5 minutes multiple times just to have basic menu questions answered.
Jasmine was a great server!
The pecan crusted okra was amazing! The chicken fried steak was exceptional! And the cheese grits were out of this world! But the real reason we went was for the S'mores for dessert. And they did not disappoint. The marshmallows were made in house and were so good! And the graham crackers were definitely unique and yummy!
Got the homemade S'mores, they were good. The next time I travel to Dallas, I wouldn't say that it would be on the list to go again. Horrible parking, just so happened we were looking for a spot as someone was backing out. We saw our waiter twice he took our order and brought it out, he was more interested in prepping tables at 9:30 at night than waiting on his tables.
The restaurant was very loud. My husband and daughter both ordered the quail. The sauce didn't compliment the quail well. It was okay, but nothing to write home about. I had the stuffed poblano and it was very good! My husband and I shared the chocolate bread pudding. It was okay, but again nothing special. The table side s'mores my daughter ordered were good and very unique.
My son requested Tillman's for his post-graduation ceremony dinner last Saturday (5/20). One of the firms that was recruiting him took him to Tillman's a year ago, and it was memorable enough for him to choose it for his 'special occasion' dinner. The service was OUTSTANDING. We had a very charming young lady who was our server, and she was very knowledgeable about the menu, beer selection, etc. I hope Tillman's knows who I'm referring to - we had a 6:15pm reservation for four :)
We had a 2:30 reservation for brunch. We weren't seated until 3:00 and others without reservations were seated before us. There was a seat menu that day without pricing. There weren't any posting of the brunch special either. We paid 173.94 (before tip) for a family of four. We were not expecting that. Guess we should have asked. We had chicken fried steak, chicken/waffles, and a small piece of salmon. The food did taste good but not worth the money.
The Mothers Day menu was great! All 6 of us enjoyed the food. The bread basket was a great way to start the meal. The eggs benedict using biscuits instead of English muffins was a hit! The chocolate bread pudding was a wonderful way to end the meal. While the prefixed menu was a bit pricey it was all so very good. Thank you for a great Mothers Day brunch! We will be back for dinner!
This, by far, is the best restaurant I've eaten at in Bishop Arts District!
The new owners have completely transformed and upgraded the quality of the food, the ambiance of the restaurant and the service. It's literally and figuratively a brand new restaurant.
Every dish we ate was perfect in taste as well as presentation. Throughout our dinner the Owner, Chef, Management and Wait-staff all made it a point to greet us and speak intelligently about the food, creative menu and the overall quality and taste of the various dishes we devoured! What a great touch! It's refreshing when the people who work in the food industry have a contagious enthusiasm, this is a trait too often missed in today's saturated market.
The dining/ food / cocktails had many exceptional twists and flavors. You really savor each bite and sip. From out of this world crab cakes to spank yo' mama pecan pie...it was a to-die-for dining experience!!
The new menu was amazing! Everyone's meals were incredible. I had the chicken fried steak and it was the best one I've ever had...
The service was very disappointing.. I had to get up twice to find the server.. he would disappear for 15 min and we couldn't find him. He forgot things & by the end of the meal I had to chase him down to give our payments.
The food was great so we will for sure come back but the service was so bad.
Very disappointed in the downward trend. Menu has changed, lower quality ingredients for the same price, particularly the chicken fried steak. It was so loud you could not be heard over the DJ for any dinner conversation. The place is too small for that level of noise. Waitress was very sweet & efficient but it could not make up for the lack of ambiance and the decrease in food quality. Will not be back.
They were known for their Chicken fried steak, but they changed it from filets to what tasted like roundeye, definitely forgettable and not worth the price. And they downgraded their smores to only one flavor. And they were severely short staffed, which caused our food to take at least an hour. The place was run a lot better before the management change. In fact everything about the restaurant was better before the management change. Seriously.
I have been coming to Tillman's for 8 years now. Was excited to take my girlfriend who had not been there yet. Unfortunately, we came on a night where your manager had only 2 waiters... Not sure why he would have only 2 waiters come in on a Thursday night, but that really hurt the service. I don't blame the waiter that we had because it was obvious he was really busy so I blame the manager for not doing his job of having a complete staff. If there was a no show, then he (the manager) should have been out there waiting on tables. Was a very disappointing experience and I have to say that I don't think we'll come back after that.
Also, ordered the NY Strip steak and planned on having the leftovers the next day for lunch. Asked the waiter to box up the leftovers but he threw the $30 steak away! Which just topped off the bad experience that we had. Very unfortunate because I really liked your restaurant but there are plenty of choices in Dallas that can staff their restaurant for a Thursday night dinner.
We went to Tillman's Roadhouse for our Family Easter Sunday Brunch. the staff was very pleasant, friendly and efficient. the food was delicious, well prepared and presented. I would highly recommend this restaurant for brunch, lunch or dinner.
I had the Eggs Benny, my husband had the grilled steak ham, and my son had the chicken fried steak.
