Don't eat at Sticks!! Horrible food and even worse service.. My husband and I recently bought the dinner and show package and while the comedy show was fantastic, we will never eat at Stick's restaurant again. The service was horrendous even though there were only 5 other tables in use. It took almost a half an hour just to get our drinks (we had received our appetizer from a different server long before we got our drinks) and then another half hour before the server came back to take our order. They then brought our food out to the wrong table so by the time we got it it was only warm (this was after the server brought us soup even though we both ordered salad). We both ordered the sirloin and it was inedible. The steaks were grayish colored and looked horrible - we both ate a few bites and decided to stick to the flavorless potatoes and veggies. Apparently we ate just enough of the steak because we were both sick for the next 24 hours - it was awful. While we will surely go back to Acme for the comedy, but will eat somewhere else next time!!
DON'T EAT HERE! I GOT FOOD POISONING!.
I ate at Sticks Restaurant on June 11, 2010. My boyfriend and I had the dinner and show package, when we arrived the atmosphere resembled more of a morgue then a comedy club. I ordered the Halibut for my dinner entree. It smelled and looked like it had been sitting out for a week. I choked down a couple bites and finished my vegetables.
The service was horrendous, our waitress never even asked how the meal was. The restaurant was dead but she still didn't seem to have time to check on us. Within 12 hours of eating there, I had nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, which lasted for 24 hours.
I called and complained and the person who said they were the manager told me that " there was no way I had food poisoning" he offered no apology, NOTHING! and argued with me about how long it takes for food poisoning to take effect.
I would never recommend this restaurant to ANYONE! Come here for the comedy not the food. I only put one star because they make you. It would really be NONE!
Don't order the steak. Had dinner with a group of people on Friday night. The sirloin steak my friend ordered was simply inedible. He is a steak and potatoes guy with a hearty appetite. He couldn't eat but 1/4 of his steak, and he was chewing, and chewing, and chewing. He said he couldn't remeber the last time he had such a tough steak. I was thrilled when they brought out the bread basket. Looked like a nice loaf of precut french. It was stale. Very stale. I asked the server for another basket, as the bread is STALE. She cheerily returns within nanoseconds and places a new basket of very stale bread down on the table. SIGH. I watched in envy as all of my tablemates received a generous helping of salad. The bowl set in front of me was skimpy at best. I wished I would've stayed in the bar and ordered a pizza.
Best pasta ever.
With no other nearby restaurants to choose from, you won't regret dining here on your way to ACME for a night of laughs. That is, if you're in the mood for pasta. It's hidden in the North Loop/Warehouse district, but has a nice ambiance and friendly staff.
You will love the Lemon Basil Agnolotti served over a Pesto Cream Sauce. I haven't enjoyed a pasta dish this much in ages. Usually I am all about the marinara dishes, but not this time. With Fresh Vermont Goat Cheese, how can you go wrong?And since we were celebrating my birthday, I couldn't have been more pleased with such a delicious dish.
The toasted wontons filled with chicken were a good appetizer, a nice change from the norm.
Don't go for the:
My friend had the Black-pepper fettucini with chicken, which was good but nothing special. When she tried my dish, she regretted ordering the fettucini. It was pretty bland.
