Red Robin, Anderson Mill and 183

I don't know what to say about this place... it was completely full by noon on Saturday. I've read good things - hmmm.

From the beginning, they had a tough time deciding how to configure a table for four adults. Okay - they were packed.

The menu looked somewhat promising - but definitely trying to be all things to all people, particularly if the people are not from around here. Appetizers are pricey and typical bar type fare. The descriptions were interesting but the execution - a bit bland.

Waitress was okay, I guess, if one is feeling generous. She found it necessary to interrupt conversations... just came over to the table and started asking questions when clearly she should have waited or at least excused herself before speaking as we were having conversation. She did this several times. I guess she wasn't raised well. I don't think she was aware of who was the guest and who was the server. (I've waited tables so I would say that she was simply rude - did not meet my standard).

So I ordered a burger (supposed to be what they do well) and she says "pink or no pink". My reply is, "I beg your pardon"... "pink or no pink"... I'm a medium rare sort so I guess the answer is pink. I know at this point it will be gray... and it is.

Bottom line, three less than acceptable burgers, one good salad, four beers and a coke - $54 before tip.

I do have to admit that I don't really like steak fries, but theirs were a little smaller and quite tastey. It's a bottomless serving so I suppose if one feels like overeating, that could be a plus?

Yuk - I can't think of any reason to return.
