1 out of 3 people found this review helpful. - They physically pushed me toward the door at Allens! Have you been there?
- I want to tell you our experience; it was crazy!
- I arrived Wed. June 27/07 before 7pm, i had 12 friends coming, we were looking forward to their patio!
- Once inside, i was heading to the back near the patio and asked a server if i just seat myself. she said no, go to the front so i did.
- At the front was this older woman who was short, curt and mean! I noticed a friend was at the bar waiting and she noticed their bad attitude-they meanly said she had to sit at the bar and wait.
- So the older women was saying we can't go to the patio unless we're eating dinner. I said yes some will be eating dinner, there's 12 of us and we're having drinks.
- She said we had to wait inside until all 12 people came, then we could go to the patio.
- I said how about a table for 2, there's 2 of us now. So she was walking us to the patio and i said it's mean here. (sunday, i was there at noon wanting to go on the patio for drinks and they were mean about it and said no, it's for lunch only)
- So we're at the dooor to the patio and this older woman stopped in front of me, put her hand on my lower back and was pushing me saying to get out. I said what is going on? We have 12 people here and we'd just like to sit on your patio. She was actually pushing me to make me move. I noticed it and said stop pushing me. I said where is the owner and she said she was, 'this is my house and get out'.
- honestly i couldn't believe it, we did not provoke her. hey i wanted to go there another time someday but i guess i won't.
- Allen's will not only be mean, tell you off but will physically push you out! nice.

I do not recommend this place.

1 out of 2 people found this review helpful. I have been to Allen's numerous times over the last 10 years and have always enjoyed the food and the service.

However, something has gone very wrong with Allenís now.. On my last visit (Sunday) the service was extremely poor. When we arrived at the restaurant, the hostess was obviously in a bad mood, and was quite unpleasant to the guests at the table next to ours. After waiting for over 45 minutes for our main courses, we asked our waitress if she could find out how long it would be. She answered that the cook was in a bad enough mood as it was and she was certainly not about to upset him any further and we would just have to wait. Our food came shortly after that, but our waitress's attitude swung from indifference to downright rudeness. It was impossible to get her attention without actually going up to her (which I eventually did - she was talking to other members of staff who were on their lunch break). I have to ask: why would someone take on a job they so obviously hate, and why would anyone employ someone like that?
What's happened to Allen's? Obviously morale is very low, and there is no supervision of the staff.
I would not recommend this restaurant until the management gets the staffing problem sorted out - which is a shame, because I used to love going there.

I do not recommend this place.

2 out of 4 people found this review helpful. Excellent meals, great variety, great service. Some items are a little pricey, but the food is worth it.

Allen's has a very nice outdoor patio behind the restaurant. It's a calm and relaxing area to enjoy a meal.

I recommend this place.
