The Experience

Dick’s Last Resort is all about the waitstaff and the way that the treat their guests.  Really, it is more of the way that the trick their guests.  When you walk through the doors you are going to find out that you are not at a typical family restaurant.  You will find a surly group waiting the tables, throwing napkins at the guests, verbally sparring with each other and everyone at the tables and of course serving amazing food.  But before we jump on to the food, realize that this is not a normal place you have decided to eat.  You came for the live entertainment that the staff provides.  They are not going to say thank you and please, they are not going to tell you you made a good choice on your meal selection.  They are going to make jokes at your expense, place hats with a snappy epitaph on them on your head and potentially throw napkins at you.  Don’t be afraid to bring the kids though, bring the little ones with you and let them get in on the entertainment, Dick’s Last Resort promises to keep it family friendly.

The Food

The food is excellent.  The good folks knew that you weren’t coming for people to be nice to you that you were coming for the experience and the food so they made sure the food was the exact opposite of the service:  great!  Their dinner menu is covered with comfort food favorites:  ribs, wings, crab cakes, shrimp all fired and baked and sauteed and cooked to perfection.  And when you get down with dinner, you need to save room for dessert.  The dessert menu at Dick’s Last Resort is to die for.  Mile High Peanut Butta Pie, Not-Yer-Mamma’s Cheesecake and Extreme Brownie Meltdown.  The desserts are as sweet as the staff is not.
