Always a good time

Every time I've gone to Calico Jack's I've had an amazing time. My friend had an awesome bachelorette party there. The staff is super friendly and they have amazing happy hour deals. Always packed on Friday/Saturday nights. Perfect atmosphere if you're just looking for a place to dance and let off some steam. Will be back again and again.

Go anywhere but here

I'm not picky, but this was by far the worst place I can think of to spend an evening. Completely unprofessional behavior. If I was the owner the front of house would be fired on the spot. You can tell that everyone who works here doesn't care, bouncers included. I'm baffled as to how they're still in business. Food was burnt, drink orders were screwed up, and the staff is rude. Avoid at all costs.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
