About a week ago, I contacted the events coordinator to get pricing to book an event at Stats on Superbowl day. The initial email I sent to her contained the date of 02/05/2012 and it also stated that it was superbowl day. Immediately, I received an official quote long with a credit card authorization which contains a 3% sevice charge added to your credit card payment. A quote of 1900.00 along with a charge of 58.00 just for paying with my credit card.
I was told that I only needed to pay 50% of the balance and the remaining portion is due the night of the event.
7 days later, I get an email from the event coordinator stating that due to the fact that it is superbowl day I am required to pay the full balance of 1900.00 in order to book the room for February 5th.
Then she stated that she could offer me a smaller space for 750.00 total. The space, I've actually occupied before....She states it holds 25-30 people. There are 2 tables in this space with about 6 chairs each. Very small space and one TV.
This is BAD BUSINESS PRACTICE AND DISCRIMINATION. I have a birthday celebration every year and I have never been asked to pay the entire balance 2 months prior to my event!
Great place! – Love this place! Its a little pricey but it's definitely a step up from your average sports bar. Beers on tap right at your table, great food, nice place...always have a blast when I'm here.
Very impressed! – I was in charge of arranging my women's flag football team's start of the season party. I wanted somewhere centrally located, sports oriented, but not where there was a bunch of drunken idiots with no class.
I found this place and saw the mixed reviews online but decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did. The place was packed because of the NCAA games on, but I soon found myself on the rooftop which had open seating. The weather was warm, but cool, the decor was trendy yet casual, and the vibe was very chill.
I quickly snagged up a picnic table for me and my team. I was early so I decided to pregame it with some drinks. The prices were reasonable, I've paid more for less else where. The food menu was eclectic and average to pricey for a main course bar food, but you get what you pay for.
My waitress was obviously thin stretched because of the size of crowdon the roof but she never let it affect her attitude or demeanor.
There was a manager that walked by OFTEN to make sure me and my guests were well taken care of, and I was even more impressed when he brought out a round of shots for us out of nowhere when we paid our check.
With warmer weather ahead, I will definitly be visiting again, and have no problem referring this place to friends. Just have common sense, if the place is packed have some patience and enjoy the view.
Bad Service – We went to celebrate my husbands 28th birthday. I called ahead to book a table for 15. My husband and I got there at 9 and waited for some of our guest at the bar, I had 4 cancels and the others were going to be arriving later. I let the hostess know that we would need a smaller table and if we could just take a seat now because the guest were on there way and my husband was hunrgy but we didn't want to order food at the bar and have the guest arriving. She explained she had a table and we could just add chairs as guest arrive, (even after I had called ahead to have a large table). I went back to the bar to let some of our guest know we would be seated soon and to cash out. Once we got back to the hostess spot, she explaines that she would really just like to wait for everyone to arrive!! By this point I was up set a little... I just told everyone to pay there tab and now we have to go back to the bar!!!!! We had two more guest arrive and others coming from the parking lot, one of the bartenders had to talk to the hostess to get a table. Then they sat us at a table that the bar tabs weren't working, when there was a working one at the very next empty table.
If the place was busy I might understand some of there actions, but it was dead. They never filled that table next to us and we left about 30 minutes after the guess arrived. We waited for over an hour an half to be seated, the hostess was rude and not helpful, they couldn't seperate the checks on a large table. Oh... and the kitchen closed right after we sat down.
I can say that I won't be returning there again nor will any of our guest.
Thanks STATS, Kelsie & Tim – My family was in town recently for the Packers-Falcons game. We contracted with Kelsie at STATS for one of their private rooms and a barbeque buffet for the group. The food was delicious and the service was terrific. The cost was reasonable. The Yale Room was smaller than I expected and that is the one negative about the place. Thanks Kelsie Gray and Tim Blackmon for a great STATS experience.
THE WORST!!!!!! – I went to Stats for the first and last time recently. When a friend suggested it I thought cool, I've never been there I would love to go. Little did I know they their service would suck. We went for Monday Night Football and the game was not on the big screen television directly in front of the table we were sitting. After asking a waiter if the game could be shown we were told that a previous table had requested that tv but offered to move our party to a booth with a private tv. Once all 8 of us got up and moved the manager comes over and TELLS us we HAVE to move back. In all this time I have not received my glass of Moscato that I order. The manager finally agreed to turn the game on the big screen but kept the sound from the previous game running on top. After ALL that our waitress comes back to the table to inform me they are out of Moscato...my friend orders another alcoholic beverage and low and behold they are out of that as well. Now we have been there almost and hour barely watching the game because of all the confusion and non existent customer service. A group of about 12 men enter and the host places them at a table near us and commences to move chairs from our table to their table as if we were not using them. At this point it's time to leave. And I wouldn't give them ANY stars if I didn't have to. Goodbye Stats FOREVER!!!!
AWFUL!!! – Been to stats twice for Monday night football and both times it has been awful!! It's been so bad I haven't even had a chance to taste anything but a coke in there. The servers are rude and the managers are even worst!! First time I went there, they didn't have any beers except a few light beers. No coronas, Heinekens, Budweisers, etc. Then When we finally decided to order off their very skimpy menu I had to wait 30 min and there was no one in the place. At this time of frustration I decide to just have a coke and watch the game. Tried it again a few months later. This time they didn't have a few alcohol beverages we had requested cause they had ran out. Then we asked if we could watch the game on the flat screen instead of the 9 inches above the bar. After being told that they will not be able to change the game, a SERVER offered to move us from a tap table to a private table with the personal screen which was not occupied. Once there, the manager came over to our table and told us to go back to the other table . He said we didn't have the right to move tables although his server was the one that told us we could move to that section. After talking to him he suggested that the table was 250.00 and we needed to move as if we weren't able to afford the table with ten people!! Needless to say I was not too thrilled and very upset. He didn't apologize or want to help or assist with paying customers who was about to enjoy their establishment. After this I left but my party stayed until they were treated worst as if they were not there. Stats Sucks and should not be open.
good service – The people were very efficient with our orders. and the food was decent.. we came here for the drinks though and we find it very good. Thanks !
Horrible – The food is awful; over priced food and beverage; music at noon is too loud; TV's at the bar are hung so poorly you have to strain your neck to watch a game.
BAD BAD BAD.
this is THE place to be! – I have been to STATS numerous times and each time it has been great. The service staff is knowledgeable, attentive and fun. The food is HUGE! Especially the Nachos! And the place is amazing!
Park across the street in the deck, but keep in mind events (like hawks games) you only get a discount
Also it gets CRAZY packed at times, make sure to plan on that if coming for a big event
