Hot day the day I went there. Was in comfortable clothing...shorts and a muscle shirt. Just got in the door when I was told that I couldn't come in with a sleeveless shirt. My girlfriend had on a sleeveless shirt also, but she could go in. WTF!!! Just because I have hairy armpits I can't spend money there? What if my GF didn't shave her pits? Would they not allow her in? It's a freaking BAR, NOT a 5 star resterant. Will NEVER spend my hard earned money in their establishment. F#$K THEM!!!!!

Great atmosphere for enjoying a sporting event or chatting with your friends. Food has always been great, Burger night especially. The shrimp night is good as well. AWESOME

Tanner's used to pride themselves in being a "family" bar and grill during the day but not anymore. My husband and I went in with our 2 daughters and received the worst service. We first asked if they had a high chair and our server informed us they had no more, we were forced to hold the baby the entire meal. Our server acted as if we were a burden and payed us no attention, our meals took 45 minutes, in which time our drinks were never refilled and then our meals were delivered without silverware, that took another 10 minutes. When we asked to speak with a manager we were told he was too busy and we could call back the next day if we had a complaint...

Tanner's is a great place to go to hang out with friends and watch a game. The beer prices are reasonable and the food is good. Lots of TVs. When KU or K State is playing, this place gets packed but it's a good crowd.

I?ve gone to Tanner?s in Waldo quite a bit over the last few years and it is definitely my favorite sports bar. Whenever I have friends or family come in from out of town they always love going to Tanners with me-it?s a great low key neighborhood pub with plenty of character. I?m surprised to hear the previous posting regarding the server that wouldn?t change the station for a game; they?ve changed channels for me numerous times in the past. I also noticed that some reviews were rather negative saying that it?s smokey and that the food isn?t top notch. I guess I?d liken these comments to someone complaining about not getting good sushi at the Hereford House?.this is a neighborhood sports-themed bar folks. You should go there for cheap drinks, decent bar food, catching a game on 20+ TVs, and playing the juke box late night on the weekends. If you want a fine steak in a clean sterile environment then this probably isn?t the place for you. Did I mention Taco Tuesdays at Tanners? WHOHOO!!!

Pros: Juke box, plenty of TV's, fun atmosphere

Cons: If I had to come up with something, I guess it'd be no dessert menu

I am a huge Packers fan and up until last week I was able to catch the Packers games here in KC at Tanner's. Last week when I went the bar was fairly empty, and many games were on but the Packers were not on any of the TVs. I nicely asked the waitress if she could turn one of the smaller TVs (that nobody was watching) to the game and she said "all the games should be on." I said that they were not ... and she said 'well we aren't allowed to turn the channel on any of the TVs.' I asked if I could speak with the manager and she said 'it won't change anything' ... so I nicely said 'then I guess we are not staying.' We left and I will NEVER go back. A sports bar that will not accomidate its regular sports fans on Sunday is NOT a real sports bar. Maybe someone should tell all the waitresses prancing around in jerseys that there are REAL sports fans that go to their bar because they have beer, food, and NFL Sunday ticket ... if they want their game on and it is not going to bother anyone else then they should be accomidated. Sorry Tanners, you lose out on a number of customers who have been attending your establishment ever Sunday for 2 years.

Pros: At this point none

Cons: Poor service, not accomidating to sports fans, parking

Been there for lunch and dinner. I've tried a few different things on the menu - everything is great. Their BLT is what I go there for! Oh and the cold beer! There's always a ton of people there, it's a great place to hang out and meet people. The live music is loud, but they don't start playing til later, so you are able to eat and have good conversation!

Pros: Great place to be. Good food. Great beer! Lot's of people!

Cons: We always leave when the live music comes in because it's SO LOUD.

This is - hands down - my favorite bar in Kansas City. If I am looking for a low-key night to hang out with my friends... this is where I want to go! The bartenders are great and the waitresses are terrific. It's one of those places where you walk in the door and just feel comfortable. The service is great and they always have specials. You just can't go wrong with the Waldo version of Tanner's. It beats out any other bar - or any other Tanner's, for that matter - and I always have a great time when I'm there.

Pros: Inexpensive, Great Food, Friendly Service

Cons: Can Get Crowded

I sat at the bar and had great service. I never once asked for a refill, because the bartender (Brian O.) was already asking me if I needed one. The food was great and prompt and not very expensive. Great atmosphere because the bartender treated me like an old friend.
Thanks,
Brent

One thing about tanner's that could use some improvement is the attitude of the waitresses. Some of them act like they are doing you a favor.

Everything was just average. I looked at the rating on the web and expected a lot more than what I received. Food was a little below average. Serves me right for not going to The Other Place in Overland Park.

Pros: a lot of women, golden tee, big screens

Cons: slow service, food that is plain, weak drinks

Don't get me wrong, this is a fun bar to get your drink on... but you can only stare at the glare of neon and the kitch items on the wall for so long. Eventually, you find yourself drunk or looking to go elsewhere. Sometimes, both.

Tanner's, at least the Waldo version, features a cloistered layout, terrible food and warm beer served in plastic cups. Service is below par to boot. If you are looking for a place to enjoy your big game, this ain't it.

The last time I was at Tanners I received a burger that was more like shoe leather. When I ask for a burger cooked madium I expect it to be pink in the middle, this one was extra well done. I havn't been back since.

Pros: Lots of TVs, Great Service/Food, Nice Atmosphere

Cons: Plastic Beer Cups?, Beer Could Be Colder

.

The downtown Tanner's location offers the worst atmosphere. You're also less likely to find any help if you want to watch a specific game. The TV's aren't located in convenient locations.

This place is great.. if you wear an oxegyn mask! If you're a non-smoker, not to sound harsh, but you'd be better off at McDonalds. The food is excellent and the service is very friendly, but I've never been there once without almost being knocked out of my bar stool, or smashed into a booth by people walking by. Smoking availability is great, but there's so many people, you may as well light up yourself. For such a great place, they ought to invest in a little more space!

All the Tanner's are the same: mediocre food, slow service, high prices for what you're getting. If you find yourself at the Tanner's in Waldo (74th and Broadway) go next door to Waldo Pizza and have some good food and beer or better yet, walk across the street to the 75th St. Brewery (just wet of Wornall on 75th) and have some fantastic microbrews while you watch the game. If you're at Tanner's downtown, walk next door to the Quaff. It's locally owned and a real downtown bar and grill. The staff is friendly and fantastic and the food's a much better bargain.

Great food and atmosphere unique to Kansas City. Not a chain. The salads are huge! Love those Tanner's cups that you get to take home!
