The other night Jordon and I met Nathan for some snacks and drinks at Don Cherry’s Sports Grill. What were we thinking. The bar was loud, the food was horrible. I ordered a mushrooms neptune that was overpriced and undercooked. Jordon had some three cheese nachos that were cool and actually had processed cheese as one of the cheeses. The service was abysmal despite there only being one other table being used.
We have gone a couple of times now and you really have to think about what makes a restaurant that bad. The walls are lined with cheap memorabilia that looks like it should belong in a kids room rather than in a serious sports bar, the waitresses are indifferent to you, and the food is horrible. Again, this was on a night when there was 8 of us in there and two waitresses were working. Then during the playoff hockey game Jordon was watching, they turned the hockey game volume down and the music up.
What’s worse is that it is in my neighborhood. What could have been a quaint and laid back sports bar where you wanted to go for a bite to eat, a coffee, or meet up with some friends, have been ruined by a bad menu, indifferent customer service, and no effort to make the place genuine. There are a lot of places in Saskatoon that don’t try to be sports bars that are a better place to watch the game and a whole lot better to eat at.
