Shoeless Joe's - Stockyards
Despite asking to be seated in a place where we could watch the Leafs game, we were seated in an area where we couldn't and told to wait until the football game finished. When asking to move tables, the staff refused and we decided to leave. The manager was very sarcastic when we brought up our concerns, and continued to be rude despite other guests complaining about the same thing. We used to be frequent guests, watching the leafs play there often, but will no longer be coming. It's a shame that such a nice venue is ruined by awful, awful service.
We had been regulars at this restaurant, going there some Sunday afternoons for the past couple of years. It is usually not busy but we always make reservations without issue.
We made a reservation on Friday or Saturday for Sunday afternoon on Nov 10th. We made the reservation knowing that the MLS final was on and wanting to ensure a table.
When we arrived at the restaurant, the reservation was there on the system, but no seats available. The hostess turned us over to one of the owners who blamed Open Table and said that there was nothing they could do as others had arrived to watch the game.
We were not offered anything for our inconvenience, not even an apology.
Needless to say that with service like that we will not return. A simple apology might have sufficed as they didn’t hold a table for us.
Food was very good. Manager took good care of ya
Great service and tasty food.
It would be great if they pumped up the PPV audio, but overall a great space to watch UFC with a group of ppl.
Shoeless Joe’s stockyards is right down the street from my house so A bunch of us frequently attend this bar./restaurant and spend good money there.
However, It has come to my attention after we had already made reservations for the next raptors game (4 days prior) that they would be charging a minimum...$50 per person.
For myself, my wife and 3 children alone, we’d be paying $250 for dinner. At this point it is too late to make reservations to watch the game and have a kid friendly environment on such little notice.
Shoeless Joe’s is totally taking advantage and kicking their loyal patrons to the curb. We think the $50 charge is excessive and necessary.
We will be looking for another establishment who appreciates loyalty!!!
The only problem is they are trying to take advantage of raptor games by demanding a $50 minimum per customer before taking a reservation. If you don’t order food that means you have to drink a minimum of 5 beers to cover the 50. Loyal patrons may stay away after playoffs are over.
Great food and great service.
This location was new and really nice
Our waitress Anderson was very good.
Host at the entrance was very friendly as well.
I was very disappointed with our whole experience from the moment we walked in. The man greeting us gave me a hard time telling me that I booked a high top when I should have asked for a regular table. I didn't book a high top as there were no options to choose from. I did specify that a highchair was needed so it was obvious where to seat us.
We were told that a waitress would be with us shortly. It took 10 minutes to get a waitress who only told us that another waitress would be helping us. We waited another 15 minutes before the second waitress arrived at our table.
My food arrived cold while my husband's dish was lukewarm.
The only item that arrived hot were the appetizers. One of which was on a hot plate that the waitress put in front of my 2 year old son.
All in all...a lousy experience.
My boyfriend & I were seated right away, the servers constantly made sure we were enjoying ourselves & our food. Very good overall.
The food its amazing and have a good drinks and other things are in there
Reservation was not honoured, and ended up leaving, came back at another time
I love this sj, the service was wonderful and the food amazing
I always tend to find that servers forget about us at this location. It took a while for us to be served, but after that our server was really good. Food was great too
Excellent service , environment and food !
Great service. Food was average
I had the prosciutto wrapped chicken with feta cheese and spinach - they were super small, possibly over cooked, and barely remnants of feta cheese. My boyfriend had the fish and chips, he said the fish was really good but they were very conservative about the fries (which is weird considering the dish is fish and chips). The food took much longer than expected, especially since the place didn't seem very busy - but it also looked they may have been understaffed. Would recommend if you're just looking for a burger or wings.
It was spacious and airy. Bar environment and loud music. I would go there for drinks instead of dining for my next visit.
Miss my last appt due to emergency but I would definitely book another one soon
