Went on a Sunday afternoon. We were told they had no cook so no fried foods would be served. We had ordered our drinks and he ended up giving us our drinks. And we went somewhere else to eat. I can not imagine how they could not have a cook on Sunday afternoon. I haven't been back since and I loved their Tenderloins.
JOHN WAYNES OWNER (CHUCK). This was my first time attending city cup for APA League. I had a wonderful time, I played pool there on Thursdays and the ppl atmosphere is not bad and the waitresses are awesome!! Actually my overall experience has not been too bad period! Until yesterday (SAT 6-05-10), there was an issue tht arose and I was confronted by the Owner Chuck about it..everything was fine w/me about the situation and I understood what he was proving his point about<<<until he got very loud in front of alot of ppl towards me the front of the bar (mind you this is a pool tournament) not to mention his bar and FULL OF PPL "CHUCK" !! I felt the way he handle the situation was very unproffessional and embarrassing. He could've took me to the side discussed the matter like any normal mature business person would and I would've not taken it so personal>>>but to sit there and raise your voice to a regular customer and GO ON AND ON about it was just upsetting and demeaning to me X( There's a way to prove your point and than there's a way to be a jerk about it>>>Chuck you were a total JERK and I will never step foot in JOHN WAYNES again after city cup...you lost a "FEW" good customers>>>not cool at all!!!! Btw put some money into tht place it looks like a fricken hole in the wall...KNOW HOW TO RUN YOUR BUSINESS AND HOW TO TREAT PPL!!!!!
Disappointed. I have been going to John Wayne's off and on for 28 years. My friends and I have been going recently to watch some of our friends that play in a couple of different bands. We have always had a great time there. We have over looked that fact that the customer service is awful and you may wait over 30 minutes to get waited on. Or you may have to go to the bar and get your own drinks, only to have the bartender rudely announce to the bar that you only gave her a .75 cent tip after you had to come and get your own drink. I recently heard that a new owner has taken over and that there is not going to be any live music. That was the only reason I went there. God knows it wasn't for the customer service! I am sorry to see this happen. I think the new owner is in for a rude awakening. The live music is what brought the people in there. I would have been willing to pay a small cover charge even. If the owner is looking to make a bigger profit maybe he should raise the price of the pool tables! l will be listening to my friends bands play somewhere else. So long John Waynes!
Change of heart.
Last time we visited we were told that they would no longer be having live music at John Wayne's. Each weekend, or at least twice a month, 6-10 of my friends would gather there to listen to the live music. Needless to say, we will no longer be going to JW's for live music.
They also need more wait staff, the girls that work, work their buns off so the service is not so good.
cpl of my friends like this place, we went 2 wkends of the month for over a yr, last month we reserved our usual table and one next to it, the ones against the wall, well our other 2 guest didnt arriv. cpl of my friends like this place, we went 2 wkends of the month for over a yr, last month we reserved our usual table and one next to it, the ones against the wall, well our other 2 guest didnt arrive before the time on the reservation (10 min late) so the security gaurd waded up our reservation and said sorry about your f___ luck we dont reserve tables here. Last friday night we went in the table beside my friends was reserved for 8:30, I arrived at 9:15 sat next to my friends, at 10pm the people showed up and wanted their table, it was not even my table that was reserved for them, it was 2 tables down. The couple at the end refused to give up their table so they told me I had to give them mine, I told them about the rule the month before, 3 different waitresses asked me to move, this stupid bartender came out and got in my face and said (LOL) so because we did it to you, you are going to make us do it to someone else, do you think that is fair, I said I certainly do, well a few minutes later when my pizza was ready they brought it in a to go box and told us we had to leave, of course I told them to stick it, I will never go back there, except to give the bartender my address so she can get in my face on my turf,
Tucked away near a South Side strip mall, this spot serves cold beer, warm hospitality and a little Wild West..
Its sign complete with cowboy hat standing out from among the surrounding shops and pizza places. John Wayne's serves up a full menu along with its polite and friendly atmosphere. Live music revisits the favorites of the '70s and '80s. It may be a bit out of the way if you're planning to club hop, but for a casual drink with friends John Wayne's just may be your spot, cowboy.
Mr. Mike W..
John Wayne' Pub is a great place to meet your friends. They have friendly staff, great live music and good food. I like their huge pool room with all the TV's. The live music line up is the best!
