Champions Restaurant – Philadelphia
Posted by LOTGK on January 30, 2008
Champions Restaurant, inside the Marriott Hotel in downtown Philadelphia.
After running up the Philadelphia Museum Of Art steps ala Rocky Balboa I was ready for a good dinner. We wound up at the hotel restaurant instead.
My order was very simple. A bowl of chicken noodle soup and an order of chicken planks.
After an almost 30 minute wait, (And there was no excuse for the restaurant was not crowded at all) my chicken soup came. It looked delicious and it was good.
Before the chicken planks arrived, the server brought me fried fish and macaroni and cheese. I told him that wasn’t what I ordered and he actually argued with me. I asked to speak to my waitress. She came over and saw the mistake and said she would put a rush on my order. No apology, no batting of the eyes, nothing. I wasn’t holding out much hope on the rush part.
My wife ordered a Philly steak and cheese. It came without cheese! WTF! It also went back.
Finally, after another 20 minutes, our correct dinners arrived and they were tasty.
However, taking into account the shoddy service, the arguing, and the incorrect meals, the Grassy Knoll Institute awards 1.75 shots out of 5 and does not recommend Champions Restaurant inside the Downtown Philadelphia hotel.
