Dallas >Bars & Clubs > West End Pub
After we literally ordered several dozen rounds, our bill seemed much lower than it should have been. But then again, perhaps the alcohol made the tab all the easier to "digest." Still, prices were reasonable and the ambiance was great! The next time I'm in Big D, I'll definitely pop in again for refreshments.
good job. Staff was friendly and service was quick! I literally ordered my drink, and moments later I was already on my second margarita. To top it off, their drinks seemed especially refreshing after walking around in sweltering heat at midnight.
nice. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. The music is usually chill and they don't play any annoying bs. I've been there with live acts playing Jimmy Buffet and also with the jukebox playing random hits from the past. If you're looking for a low key downtown spot with good people and a chill environment, this is the place.
great service. Flat out excellent service every single time! The bathrooms are super clean which is odd for a bar but it's really refreshing.
Good Time Other Than Weed Deprived Waitress. So a group of 9 of us stroll into this establishment around midnight after an event at House Of Blues three (3) blocks down the road. We walk-in and there was literally 3 people in the bar playing a video game (Golden Tee?) on a Thursday night. One of them happens to be our eventual waitress. It was apparent from the start that we were inconveniencing her when we asked to sit outside on a beautiful evening. We all sit down in the patio area and all are having a great time. We each ordered 2 rounds of drinks and food (decent for pub fare) with our waitress getting everything from a "window" to the bar inside. It was obvious that the scrawny girl was baked/high on something. Things she said were nonsensical. She provided us with a 10 minute warning that they were closing. Fine. She then gave a 3 minute warning and then a 2 minute. Hint received. We all stood up to gather our things and some of us said good bye and thank you. She uttered under her breath DON"T COME HERE AGAIN. We couldn't believe it....especially on a $186 tab where we left the woman a $36 tip. Will not return. Your experience may vary...especially if you tip her with weed.
West End is like home away from home. West End is like home away from home; where everybody knows my name and where I can relax with a drink and some great food! Who could ask for more? They have great burgers and even vegans can find something good to eat. Staff is most responsive and make the place fun. It is friendly and welcoming and supply great live entertainment on some nights.
Now My Favorite Bar.
I agree with Tonyo 1's review. West End Pub is my favorite downtwon bar. It wasn't always, but after trying it again last month with some friends going to the Mavs games I changed my mind.
We came into downtown early thinking we would have trouble finding parking because of the Mavs game and a one of the guys said lets park at West End and ride West End Pub's bus. We parked in the lot right next door for $5 and went into the pub for a beer and something to eat. I tried the chili cheese burger. All I can say is AWESOME! The waitress said they make the chili from scratch every day. My date had the chicken salad sandwich. I had a bite and in one word - DELISH. Since that night we have gone back twice and so far service and food have been great. I feel like I am walking into my local bar because the waitress remembers me and what I like to drink.
Great sandwich and potato salad.
The potato salad is off the chain and great sandwiches.
This is easily the best bar downtown.
Thank you for the great review. It's patrons like you that make the Pub a great place to party or just hangout with friends.
horrible place to have anything!!. To begin, I would like everybody to know what horrible service I had here. My bartenders name was tony and he was the worst!! He wasn't to quick to help when we needed it. And believe me, I heard a ton of people around me complaining about his service, so I know it wasn't only me. He was also very rude and unattentive!! Now the food. Well there's not much can I say, besides that is was just alright. There wasn't much to any of it. Some of the things I tried was bland and some of it was okay. I'm not a food critic, but it definitely needed a little work. Now let's talk about happy hour!! Yeah, not too happy!! They hand out free h'or derves, which I understand why they are free because I wouldn't pay for them either way!!! Also, the seating is crowded and the environment isn't to friendly. I think I can end with saying I will never go there again!! Now, if you are looking for a good area to go out and have drinks or some really excellent food, I suggest going to VICTORY PARK!! It's most definitely victorious there!!
We are sorry you had a bad experience somewhere, but we don't think it was West End Pub due to the many discrepencies in your review.
1. We don't have nor ever had a bartender or waitperson named Tony.
2. Space is not an issue at the pub.
3. We have a free happy hour buffet serving typical bar food, not hor d' oerves (learn to spell). Buffet foods change daily and many are on our regular menu.
4. Bland? Not on our menu. The cooks and owners have a passion for spicy, savory foods.
5. We must do something right to have so many repeat customers; even ones from places like NYC, London, Hawaii due to the great food and friendly "Cheers" like atmosphere, including many VIP's that just want to kick back and relax.
Trying to get business for another bar by slamming a business open for 22+ years, is unethical. Obviously, many people know better or the West End Pub would not have been open for so long and have very loyal and diverse customers.
Cozy little spot downtown. I work close by and love going to this place. They have free Hor d ourves for happy hour. Its the best and most comfortable place to have a cocktail downtown that i can think of.
