This show gives the bars some of the stupidest names. The makeover for this episode looks the same. Well, I give it a thumbs up. I do agree about the barrel tables though - As soon as I saw that I thought "those are a pain in the ass to sit at.

I have been going Holding Company Embarcadero for several years and have been disappointed on my last 3 visits with the quality of the potatoes used for the fries. I thought it may have been a one time thing but the last 2 visits I got the same black spotted?

Overall the food and service are quite good so am confused that the kitchen Holding Company Embarcadero to serve these fries and doesn't notice the poor quality of the potatoes? I haven't even watched the episode yet. Just seeing the intro, I see four ladies fishing for their own reality show. I confess I've never felt contempt for stupid, egotistical owners like I did at the sight of these four. Maybe the bar didn't need any cosmetic changes, but those four immature girls needed a slap upside the head.

Mia has such a dazzling smile when she's working that Boston shaker. I find the jiggling of her arm cellulite oddly sexy. Jon Taffer is an absolute ass-clown. Why would anyone let such a jerk tell them how to run their business?

This guy comes into town with his theme bar idea already cooked up and implements it, regardless of whether it's a good idea or not, no matter if a bar like The Holding Company has a 40 year old pedigree. Bar Rescue destroys yet another business.

It's basically a cafeteria with booze. Why throw away a 40 year old name? Jon Taffer would rename the Tadich Grill if someone let him. I have to admit that the idea of a William Howard Taft-themed cocktail was rather abstruse. Um, because he's wildly successful at what he does? You throw away the name once the name becomes Mudd. Rebranding is a much easier way to get people back in than trying to convince them that a place they didn't like has turned over a new leaf.

I think too many people are getting hung up on the Patriot name. I got the impression that the theme of the bar was a celebration of America, as it were.

One of these days, next time I got up to the city, I'll have to check it out So, "no. The problem is that Taffer is on a hour, reality show turnaround schedule, Oxbow Trade Company Canyon City his producers' cluelessness is demonstrated by the list of incredibly successful bars in San Francisco they tried to line up for a "rescue.

That's the equivalent of one or two additional lunch four-tops per workday from breaking even, and it's hardly the basis for not knowing what you're talking about but holding forth as if you do. You guarantee it, huh? So, did you go and do a survey to come to this conclusion?

Because the owners did. Guess what they found out? People's opinions on Auto Garage Company Profile Holding Company were very polarized.

In the end, it doesnt matter. The sisters are happy with the result. As for me, I have a meeting in the city tomorrow. I think I know where I'm gonna have lunch now This is a huge reason why food quality is so important and why "It's not coming back, so it must be okay" is the comment of an incompetent manager. Any bar or restaurant that Holding Company Embarcadero food needs to establish quality standards, constantly monitor food quality, and hold staff to those standards.

At the end of the day, Willett Company owners decided to keep the new name and theme.

If the theme is unique to the market, even if some people perceive it as better suited to the east coast, there's something to be said for being unique.

Well, guess where I had lunch today? I really liked the motif; I don't get why people think Boston is the only place that should have an American Revolution themed restaurant. For those complaining about the barrel tables, I only saw two of them in the bar area. The rest were regular tables. I went ahead and sat at the bar. I chatted with the bartender a bit about the rescue. She said she'd seen a bit Holding Company Embarcadero an uptick in business since the episode, and that she hadn't seen the episode proper yet, but really wanted to.

It seems that keeping the existing bar was not only good for aesthetic reasons, but for practical ones as well. The bartender said that it was one of the few bars she's worked behind in 14 years that was logically set up to function as a bar. I ordered a glass of Zinfandel Seven Deadly Zins. I also ordered the burger with fries. Contrary to what someone mentioned below, the fries didn't look like they were poor quality.

Holding Company Embarcadero did notice that they were natural cut, perhaps that what threw that guy off. They tasted fantastic! The Hidden Harvest Company crispy Holding Company Embarcadero the outside, nice and soft on the inside.

The burger was also delicious, and cooked just the way I like it. Then again, this is San Francisco. Everything is expensive there Time from food order to serving me the food was about 12 minutes. The service was nice and friendly my bartender always made sure to acknowledge people coming in when the seater was busy seating others.

When I got up to leave, the bartender shook my hand and asked my name, and introduced herself I think it was Camille? I always have a bad time remembering names Since I don't go to the City that often, I don't know when the next time I'll be there is. I would definitely go again if I had the opportunity to. I can answer that question. My bar was also up for Vevo Company Profile on the show.

People were being cold called in San Fran area in April. The same month the girls bought the bar. I waited 9 months struggling being promised they would come and the week they were here this bar was chosen over mine. I had been struggling for years. They had owned the bar for a month the first time they were interviewed.

It's just bullshit. You seem to have some sort of axe to grind and unresolved anger issue. I will pray for you. Did you reach the point that surveillance cameras were installed in your bar? Then the answer was unless there is a disaster of some sort it's going to be the other bar. Funny though, that bar isn't scheduled yet to air since Mandala was the last one for season 4. The bar that was filmed instead of us wasn't even on the list when I met with the contractor the month before.

And from their facebook and yelp reviews looks like they stayed the same, haven't even established a new facebook West Palm Beach Water Company. Regardless, it's over, my landlord asked Www Kingfisher Company Com to leave as soon as I told them they weren't coming.

I closed my bar a month after they told me they weren't. Our income had gone down by half from the initial interview to the time they were supposed to show up. I could get sued probably from all of this since I'm still under contract but really what are they going to take from me now.

What is the name of the other bar? Its interesting that there are 9 episodes this season when there was supposed to be I find your explanation to be interesting, but honestly Well, it would be nice if it fit into a great little explanation like that but no.

My doors shut because for nine months I let it go to hell on the belief and reassurance I got that we would be on. Kim Gidc Company List wasn't dated, we had only been open since I said declining One of the bartenders that was stealing I had had for a month when we were initially interviewed.

I don't think he was stealing at that point at least that I am aware of. The other I wasn't aware of until months later. When your employees know that they can do whatever they want and you can't do a thing because you might lose the opportunity of being on the show they do whatever they want. Probably the point don't you think.

And yes, it was my choice but they could have just told me that I was a back up bar and given me the option of letting my bar go to shit or try to save myself.
