Crowded Country Club Plaza in Kansas City on a Saturday night. No reservation. Thought we would wait. Didn't happen. Fast seating. Great service and delicious food. Nothing overpriced. Just really good sandwich and salad and beer. Will stop in again.

Our large group discovered this place near our hotel and were so impressed that we kept going back for many of our meals. The Sunday brunch was the most extensive brunch i have ever seen! The staff was fantastic as well.

Recommended by our hotel for casual dining near Plaza area. Just another KS burger and BBQ place. Parking a bit challenging. TV with sports playing.

This pub type restaurant has a great lunch menu with lots of choices including combo options so you can try a couple of things at once. The food was good and the prices were very reasonable. They have a large bar menu for beers, wines, and other drinks. Although we didn't try it, they have a bloody mary bar on... More

If I could give a "Pitmaster Seal of Approval" to a fun American restaurant and bar, Tomfooleries would be it. Happy Hour is 4-7 pm AND 9pm-3am! Plenty of TV's to watch your favorite game. I order the Tot-Cho Chicken Sandwich with the most wonderful marinated, grilled chicken, softball pretzel bun, hot peppers, tater tots, and other goodness that will... More

Vibey and well set up. Stocked bar, quick service, great deals for lunch and happy hours. We had a "signature" cocktail that really packed a punch. Next time we will hang around for some food as well. Great location.

The kid's lunch comes in a radio flyer wagon. My kids loved it! I had a bacon cheddar burger which was great. The chips and queso were surprisingly good (I am from Texas). We enjoyed our lunch and great service for a party of 12.

We were pleasantly surprised at how tasty the food was for a pub setting. Great bar and selection of beers, and friendly service. In the heart of the Plaza, casual and friendly

The main thing this restaurant has going for it is the location - it being on the Country Club Plaza. It is on a corner with no real nearby parking, which is a pain. The food is decent and I loved their pickles and waffle fries. We had a group of about a dozen and sat upstairs. We had a... More

I took my girlfriend here during our quick trip this fall to KC. Our first stop was for dinner. My girlfriend enjoyed the bacon mac 'n cheese and I went for the burnt end tacos. I would say the burnt ends reminded me of shredded bbq beef in a slow cooker. It was a good flavor and the right size... More
