    I like coming for brunch, their chilaquiles are very good and their mimosas are well made. Our server was kind and patient and friendly, we really appreciated her. Lovely atmosphere on the patio.

    The food was good. The service was where they are seriously lacking. A server didn’t approach our table for about 15-20 min. Once she took our order we were left without drink refills for another 20 min. They were not overly busy.

    We were in the area. The Chevys near us have all closed down. It is my boyfriend’s birthday. We had the most wonderful staff. I even witnessed some random people just yelling at a poor hostess and continued to be pleasant. It sits on the river so you get a view. There is even an upstairs, and outdoors. Definitely will come back if we are in the area again. ❤️

    Our server and hostess were very friendly. Different staff members served our table and they were okay. Salsa is usually good but today it was extremely salty. The food was okay. Good steak. Nice view of the riverfront. Nice ambiance.

    We went on a Sunday morning around 10:30 AM. We were seated right away, the patio area is redone and much nicer than it used to be. The service was great. Fast with the chips and salsa and water refills. My only complaint is that the portions are small compared to how they were a year or even 4 months ago. You used to get a decent sized piece of steak with the steak diablo breakfast, this time it was like 5 pieces of steak. For $17, not a great deal!

    They overstaffed the server with tables so she couldn’t attend to all of her tables and it wasn’t her fault but it made it for a poor experience. They brought the wrong entrée and then it took 20 minutes to get a new one for a salad is unacceptable. Took an additional 15 minutes just to get it to go box drinks were not very well either. Complain to management and they did take care of the meal however the overall experience will not have us coming back.

    The only thing I won’t complain about was the waitress. The nachos (which is all I ever get here) were disgusting. Two tries at them. They were awful. My Cadillac margarita was watered down. Also, the only drink I ever get there. I was so unhappy with it, I tried a Long Island. Worst Long Island iced tea I’ve ever had. Tasted more like a lemonade. Horrible. Two shady managers, who micromanaged. The scared employees’ faces told me this one. I honestly don’t know that I’ll ever come back. It seems like there was a change in management…that did more harm. Bring back the chevys that was fun and made good nachos and drinks. Even the host dude was crap.

    First and foremost our waitress was exceptional!! She was upfront, professional and kept us apprised on our drinks and meals. Unfortunately, when we finally received our dinner the hot meals were cold and one order (wings) was both cold & salty. As a result our elderly mother did not eat anything which was quite disappointing. Note: I had made previous on line dinner reservations via “Open Table” for our beloved Dad’s 89th Birthday and my request was “Can you please make our Dad’s Birthday Celebration special!” It’s quite clear Chevy’s is short staffed; however, our kind and sweet waitress did her very best to make a bad food experience tolerable. As a result, she gave us a discount for our poor experience. Thank you for taking the time to read my heartfelt response. Wishing the Chevy Team much peace during these difficult times. Ms. S. Bailey

    Everything was great except for when we arrived at 12:30p our (reservation time) we were told they would get our table ready. 20 minutes later I went back and asked how long it would be before we were seated, and the young man who we checked in with asked for our name and didn’t know who our party was. When he tried to remember our party, he was distracted by another customer. I let him finish then again I asked him about our reservation and he asked for the party name again!! At that point I had to tell him he needed to focus on one customer at a time. He was then able to seat us. If I hadn’t gone up and checked on our reservation, we would have been overlooked. The servers were excellent and did a great job!

    I made a reservation and when I arrived and checked in with the host, I told her we needed a high chair for our toddler. She told us our table wasn’t ready yet and we waited 15 minutes and then the table she tried to seat us at she said we couldn’t use a high chair. We had to sit at a table in bar if we wanted to use a high chair and sat us at a table that had been empty the entire time we were waiting. If she had listened when we arrived the whole waiting could have been avoided which when you have a toddler is important. It was very frustrating.

    Much better overall experience this visit! Would have been a 5 star, just need the greeter to be friendly and welcoming with a smile. Need to improve on the 1st impression. Waitress was awesome! Friendly, personable, and on top of everything. Probably had a few too many tables for a normal server, but she didn’t show it. Stopped and talked to us for a minute even though busy. Small hiccup on the food order but she fixed that quickly. Definitely be back for $1 kid Wednesday’s.

    We had a great time. Nice river view on the patio. Waitress was good as she was training. Back of house let us down as our food was ice cold we sent it back. It was hot when it came back out but...our steak was way over done - not like we had ordered it. We didn't send back again because the 1 of our party would be eating aline and we already had waited a while. After we ate we decided to order a dessert to share we were over charged- it was still good. Overall we will return just not real soon.

    Horrible! We waited 30 minutes to sit even though we had a reservation. The receptionist was rude, waitstaff over worked and people busing tables walked by us three times with empty hands while we tried to get their attention. I know we are all “trying to do our best” but not really sure this applies to everyone.

    Food was good but the service was lacking. Our reservation for 4 people didn't get sat until 30 minutes after our reservation time. Once seated the wait staff took almost 10 minutes to take drink orders and the food came out for 2 people then almost 10 minutes for the remaining 2. I'm chalking it up to staffing issues/shortages. Overall while the service was a bit slow and there was a wait for our table it and the staff wasn't as attentive as they should have been the food was good.

    Cannot help but enjoy the outside patio! Server was attentive and overall he did a good job. Grilled fish tacos were rather blah. Chile Rellenos were a hit! Margaritas were disappointing as they were so light on tequila almost wondered if the bartender forgot to put any in! Would go back and try again!

    What’s the point of a reservation if you cancel our reservation when we get in there and we wait for two PLUS hours for a table, so we decided to sit at the bar , and then wait for a table and sit ourselves because the host is incompetent and didn’t know what she was doing. HOW IS THAT OKAY?

    Great atmosphere & food. Not sure why it took so long to get our food but it was a very long wait. There were 4 of us & we ordered 2 of the $39 3-course Summer meals for two. By the time our appetizers came we were pretty full from snacking on chips, salsa & guacamole. Then we had another really long wait for our entrees. It all worked out since we just boxed up our meals & ate the dessert.
