The pretzel appetizer was gone fast! So yummy! I had the Hoot Punch and Beach Retreat both were amazing. I never had a dry rub on my wings so I tried the Texas BBQ. It was sweet with a little spice. Overall it was a great experience. Our server, Nicole, was a sweetheart.. hopefully they'll start selling their hoodies soon. Patio was a little cool on the water but refreshing.

Loved the wings! Waited a little bit longer than I thought, the Philly cheese steak wasn't awesome. Still was a good place to eat wings.

Just stopped in to pass some time between errands. Had a pitcher of beer that was very cold but a little flat. May have been end of keg but also could have been poured wrong, had to much head on it. Also ordered their 24 buffalo shrimp that was cooked perfectly. Needed a little more hot sauce to suit my liking but our server Riley quickly brought us extra hot sauce on the side. We sat outside on the deck enjoyed a view of the river. Our server Riley was great. Friendly, prompt, & attentive. Will definitely stop in again.

Best Hooters in town. Service is slow but not too slow, waitress tries to stop by to check in often so you don't notice the food wait. Food is great when it gets to you, so worth the wait

It's a good thing I'm not the area director, this building would be empty.They require me to wear a mask yet half the staff isn't wearing one.The bartender completely ignored me after my wife ordered, when I said I wasn't going to order she walked to the POS station and started mumbling about me then copped attitude when I called her on it.This location has tanked in the past few years, I used to eat lunch here almost every day.Maybe a call to the health department is in order.

Very disappointed in this hooters we boated to this restaurant. Was told 30 min wait when we arrived after waiting 30 min was told it will be another 25 min we decided to wait since its one of the only places to eat by boat. After finally getting a seat server was new and was doing her best after we ordered smoked wings another lady assuming manager came out 30min after order was placed. to inform us they where out of smoked wing and in stead had roasted wings ? Another 15min later we got food and wife had shrimp tacos with what I hope was beard hair in it. they did give us discount for the tacos complete refund

We will not go back here again. We waited 25 minutes for our food. Then when one of the waitress brought our food we asked for utensils and she said I will have to get your server even though she walked right . then our food was cold. so the waitress didn't bring me the utensils so I had to go by where the kitchen is ask someone if I could get some utensils.then manager comes out and says can I help you don't know why cuz he still didn't give us our utensils we had to wait and no napkins or nothing.So the manager decides he'll give us a discount because our food was cold .which was ridiculous so yeah we won't ever go back again bad restaurant don't go.

This review is being given regardless of the situation. We were there for over 45 minutes waiting for our server. I had to flag her down to get her attention. I am sure the servers were short staffed but not an excuse. Then we asked about our food as we had to be somewhere soon... the manager came out to tell us that he had to send someone home for insubordination but really....we ordered boneless wings and fries...nothing too complicated. Our waitress was friendly but overall service was terrible!

Complete chaos...! Came in on a sunday and it was madness. There was nobody at the front, nobody at the bar.. staff just running around like crazy chickens. One girl told me she was going to "check" if there was any seatting available and never saw her again. I went by the bar and order a tap beer to what i thought it was a bartender and never saw her again.. stood there for around 30 min with absolutely no service and eventually left. Management in this place needs some serious training. Felt bad for one of the girls she kept apologizing..

Review №14

If you're not a regular don't come here. The bartender seemed like it was a choir to clean the bar from the previous customer before I sat down. A regular ordered his food maybe 5 minutes before me and got it in 10 minutes. Mine took almost 20 minutes while I was sitting here with an empty beer. Once I ate I sat for 10 minutes, mind you at the bar, waiting to be asked for another drink. Again, if you are not a local, who knows the staff, don't bother.

There was a NASCAR race in Daytona so this Hooter's had been really busy with people leaving the race. We assured the server that we understood because we've worked service industry too. Got great service and great food. Will definitely go back to this location again.

Horrible food, ordered using uber eats and the food came with a half portion of mac and cheese while I paid full price, sweet tea gallon was half way filled and about 6 fries per burger ordered. There is no shorts short enough to make up for their low quality of food.

Still a have good wings and hot waitress and fast service. I Wich they would build one by jacksonville airport , since they removed the jacksonville landing , there is not one on the Northside of town. I have to go all the way to the southside of town.

I was in the area and stopped by. I haven't been to Hooters in a long time. I was disappointed I waited over 30 minutes for my food. I saw a whole episode of Claws and half of another episode. Episodes are 42 minutes.I saw people seated after me who got their food first. I will not be back. Food was ok. Hooter please provide a way to contact you.

Wow...just Wow! My husband and I recently purchased a home within a minute or two of this Hooters location and have now come in multiple times, for lunch, dinner and a football game or two. So far, every single interaction with the servers has been awesome. I would love to state them by name but I don't want to leave anyone out. Literally, every single time, they have been great. So friendly and kind. Then there is Dwight. One of the managers. He is simply amazing. As a business owner - sometimes, I just sit back and watch and he is doing a great job. He is present. Which is very important. He checks on tables often just to be sure everyone is happy. I highly recommend this Hooters location, if for no other reason but the fantastic staff.

We order online an hour before showing and still had to wait 30 minutes. Asked for crispy fries and got soggy fries. Asked for medium buffalo wings and they had zero spice and small portion for $10. Chicken quesadilla and burger sliders were great. Friendly service.

Today, which is Veteran's day, the service has been very poor. We have been waiting forever for food. Gave up and wanted to take the food home if it ever got done.

Extremely rude and rushing sit down guests because they were doing too many to go orders. So, they were shutting down inside orders to take care of to go orders. My opinion, unprofessionalAlso, by the time we got our food, it was cold

First they forgot to put barbeque sauce on my burger, so I called them to let them know and the person on the phone told me to bring the burger back and they would put sauce on it I spoke with the GM and she was extremely nice and assured me that I could come get another meal. She honored her word but now my sandwich is TOO salty and it makes me feel as if this was done purposely. There is no way this sandwich should be this salty. I eat from here all the time and the food is usually nothing short of amazing but I don't know what is going on now

This Hooters seems like it is not doing well. The girls are friendly but the food is not very good. The shrimp is not fresh tasting and the wings are too greasy. The drinks are so so.

Review №52

The Hooters I liked to go to has decent wings beautiful girls and most importantly smiles and small talk from your servers. Let's be honest it's the environment that makes you come back not the food. The highlight at this Hooters was the wings that tells you all you need to know.No smiles and small talk from the staff. Felt like I was at a wake. I'll stick to the other Hooters in town.

Review №58

Total lack of customer service. Servers not wearing PPE correctly, only one cook was wearing a mask. They have signs posted saying face mask must be worn "it's the law". Must only apply to customers? I've eaten at several Hooters but will never eat at this one again.

Where to begin!? When we first arrived (aproxx. 7 pm) there was about 4 parties waiting to be seated. After waiting roughly 10 minutes for someone to come and seat us I decided to go look for someone to help everyone. I then found 2 employees (1 waitress and 1 manager) the waitress was eating and playing with a dog (no service it was a small puppy) she then went into the service/beverage station and the manager emerged, she went straight for the dog and started petting it. I waited a minute then finally I said excuse me. I let her know there was a line waiting to be sat and we have all been waiting for some time. She apologized and helped us right out. Our group had 6 people and we wanted to sit outside great we got sat. The waitress cam and got our drink order (7:30) we got 4 waters and lemonade and a half and half tea. Our waters came first and and one woman ordered a mixed drink we also ordered 3 apps. about 5 min later she came back and we were ready to order placed our orders and she walked away. After about 30 min the apps come out and the lady with the half and half tea still hasn't gotten it neither did the one with the mixed drink. the waitress said she was sorry that was her fault and she promptly brought the tea. We catch the waitress because its getting dark out and there are no lights on outside she said "oh i forgot to turn them on I will do that right now." we get the lights on and the one by our table isn't working no big deal we had 2 big guys and they fixed it. here comes the mixed drink. We kindly asked where our food was she said it will be up in just a minute. (8: 25ish) we also let her know that its very unsanitary for them to be petting a PUPPY and serving our food that we can see them all doing it. The boy had the PUPPY on the table at one point. She apologized and went back inside. We sat for a little while longer she brought us some refills. About 9:00 we are still waiting for our food she said its coming up now. She walks back inside! comes out about 10 or 15 min later and said to another table " are y'all wanting to order anything else, because our kitchen is getting ready to close." I said did i just hear her right. we call her over and she stated that in fact they would be closing the kitchen at 9:45 because they close at 10. We was like really we haven't even gotten our food yet. We then kindly asked for our bill and said we would be leaving. She said well your food is up do you want it we said no thank you just let us pay and be on our way. She brought our tickets out and said our you sure they are almost done. We let her know everything about our experience was beyond unacceptable and we just would like to leave. SO FINALLY AT 9:30 WE LEAVE WITH NO FOOD EXCEPT 3 APPS AND ONLY 1 OF THEM WERE GOOD.I would not recommend this location for anyone! And in case you might have thought they were busy there was a total of 8 maybe 10 tables there to be waited on and one had left way before we did.

We had not been here in a while so we decided to go. We waited inside to place a to go order. No waiter came out for almost 20 minutes and they knew we were there. Several other customers came in and saw the waiting line grewing so they left. After being told we could not wait at the bar and had to sit somewheres else until our order came we decided to leave.

Manager went out of her way to take care of her guest. We had a small issue with our bill after moving from the bar to the outside area and she took care of it no questions asked. I wanted to take her home with me- we all liked to be serviced well ( I mean we all like good service ) lol

Four of arrived for lunch. We were all aged between 66 and 80. We ordered a pitcher of beer and the waitress refused to serve us until we all showed her our ID. After complaining about it we all showed her our ID's. The waitress never looked at them just wanted us to produce them. Not exactly good customer service. We all ordered wings and they were awful. They were very small and very tough. I remember when Hooters wings were good, that time has passed. Have been to many different wing restaurants in Jacksonville and all are hands down better than Hooters.

Our experience wasn't overwhelming at all. Kitchen looked filthy and unsanitary. The kitchen staff's pants were inappropriately low, revieleing more than you would want to see. Our food arrived at three different times and it took over an hour to be prepared. The bathroom was nasty. When I asked who the manager was to one one of the servers she said "I'm the manager, no I'm just kidding."

Me and my mom went in tonight for a couple of drinks. We sat outside on the patio. 4 different waitresses walk by without a word of service. My mom finally got up and went to the bar and ordered our drinks. There was an waitress that was just awesome!! But everyone else sucked. Sorry no tip.

Food was good, but the service was terrible. We waited almost 20 minutes before someone came to take drink orders. My husband had to go and get someone from the hostess stand. I'm guessing it was because we were a family of four and not a bunch of dudes? Disappointed.

Dropped in on the way to Orlando to watch an after Christmas bowl game. Very low key. Manager would not play the bowl game over the speakers and the music was very low. Almost like they were closed or didn't want to be there. Fries not seasoned. Can't recommend. Manager cussing in the kitchen.

Not a great experience after a whole year absent from visiting a Hooter's... wings were not cooked 100% through... my friend had on only 5 cubes of chicken on his $11 nachos & we were told by the Manager we were luck to get that because you normally get 3 small cubes... corporate new change which will cause me not to visit again. so sad because I use to eat Hooter's twice a month in the Mall of America when I lived in MN.

Great build-a-burger ability that tastes good and competitive with the "burger only" new type places. Smoked and grilled wings are also consistent and good. Good seating and scenery next to the river. Bar staff friendly. Traffic light / odd turn- in is a little ..well odd but it's just the way it was designed.

I started calling to place a 2 go order at 745pm. After 6 calls with no answer and arriving to this place at 815 I called once I was inside and no one made a move to answer the phone. I then had to wait another 10 mins for a waiter to tell me I needed to go to the bar to place my order. Long story short it is now 830 and I just placed the order that I started calling in for at 745 for pickup
