To Pooks, Scoot and Weiside-
Your reviews are so obviously spiteful, biased and full of malice. Everyone is entitled to express their own opinion, however, you apparently dont have enough intelligence to realize how stupid you actually sound. I dont doubt that you will continue to air your ridiculous lack of upbringing at the expense of some defenseless restaurant you so obviously feel intimidated by. Continue your psycho-babble and hope that someone cares, more importantly, that you finally resolve some of your issues!!
Why don't you stick to the topic and review the restaurant? Speaking of people without intelligence - learn to use punctuation! Bartlett is ashamed of you...either bite in Bartlett or bite off.

I would defintely like to know what was so "spiteful" about my review. Just said what I had heard. I have also heard recently that the food is good. They have made some good changes. However in the bar they are not doing that well. Can't make a drink to the customer's satisfaction, i.e, a soco manhatten up "sorry we are out of southern comfort" but I brought you this instead. Really???? What do you sub for SOCO???? I also heard the foreigner behind the bar is not very warm to the customers and the tall blonde is a bitch - unless your her friend. Actually people have referred to her "Who is the AMAZON" behind the bar on Friday's? She's not very friendly. So anyway - the food has improved - the bar has not.

Uh oh - menu board in the parkway. Usually a sign of desperate times. Another Bartlett business about to sucumb to a premature end?

I read a bad review about Blue Ribbon and hesitate to try it. Heard it was a bit overpriced. The Savory is very slow service, in fact, getting ready to write the manager a letter. Is the "Tap" the Bartlett Tavern? Because that is the best place ever. I'm so glad it is smoke-free now because I can take my kids there. It's nicely remodeled and the owner is so friendly every time we come in.

Blue Ribbon was OK, the Ribs are better then the Tap, which is not saying alot... We need some better Restaurants in town... We get to pick gtom TL's which is great, Blue Ribbon, OK and like 40 pizza places... I have been to the Tap and the Fish Fry and Ribs are OK for a bar... I must say since the old owners sold it has not been so good... I also was told last week the current owner is getting a divorce and the wife and owner are battling who gets what, he also owns Lucky jacks... This could be good or bad, time will tell

Twenty bucks for a 1/2 slab of ribs? Not sure I would qualify that as a great price. The place blows and it will not be long before this is another failed town center experiment.

Off topic - but how 'bout the new cleaners!!?? Isn't that a nice looking business? Flashing open signs (against code by the way) and the wonderful looking window treatment that faces Main Street. Yip Skip !!

This is a great place! I didn't even know that it was there! The prices are so affordable, great specials, delicious food, cozy atmosphere...loved it!
The skirt steak is to die for!!!! And it is only $10(full dinner included)on Thursdays. Plus, on Thursdays, they do 1/2 off all bottled wines. Awesome place!;)

My parents would tell me about this place all the time. They loved the Wednesday $5 burgers with fries and cole slaw. Since our family has a tradition of choosing our birthday dinner place, I knew I had to try this plave since it's in our town. I absolutely loved it. I had the salmon, spinach and groutton potatoes. I would recommend this place to anyone. The owners and servers are great!! Bartlett needs more places like this. From what I hear it's become a neighborhood favorite. The prices are very reasonable for what you get. Hands down it gets a 10 from me.

Walked by and the place is cleared out. Seating is there but there's trash and buckets laying on the floor. Ate there twice and it was so-so and I'm not at all surprised. This Town Center is cursed.

That's too bad but not unexpected with no other draw to the area. So if I am right, the only remaining businesses are a cleaners (they do not clean the clothes on site) an eye doctor, and a photo studio?

Oh well, at least the fountain is on.

I've never seen anyone go in or out of that photo place and I live right there. Same with the eye doctor. Is the Fitness place still there?? I'll have to look. This "strip mall" is pathetic. Have the condos upstairs ever all been occupied at once?
