Another bad experience tonight. I just don't get it. I have been there 5x. The first was a to-go order when they first opened that was outstanding. The 4x since have all been kinda terrible.

Tonight we were seated quickly despite the restaurant being crowded. The waitress was very attentive. The food took over 40 mins to come out (fried catfish plate and fish tacos). The catfish was cold. Like it had been sitting out at my tailgate for an hour kinda taste. Fish tacos were fine but got the wrong side order. Wife finished meal before waitress said "that should be coming soon".

I gently told the waitress about the experience. She was a very sweet girl but certainly not empowered to solve anything. I think I'm done with second chances there. It's a shame, because we really were rooting for it to work.

Am I the only one, or have others had similar experiences?

Went once, 6 months ago. Thursday evening. Low to medium crowd. We were seated after a 5 minute wait. Tables that weren't seated were all covered in dirty dishes and no bus staff in sight. We sat for 10 minutes and a waitress never came to greet us or take drink/appetizer orders, so we got up and left. Won't go back.

I go there to BS with buddies, drink a few beers and have a pretty decent Po Boy with lots of shrimp in the bar area side of the place. Guess I can't relate.

Me and my wife have been atleast 5 times since December and haven't had a bad experience. It was super crowded one Friday evening, waited awhile to be seated but no other complaints. Our food has always been hot and on time…never waited more than a couple minutes to order drinks. The food was meh one time in November or December I can't remember exactly but everything has been good since then. We enjoy going there
there were skittles in there!

1860 Italia was way crowded but got in around 8 without reservation. Spent some $$$s but it was worth it.

This was exact experience I had on our 3rd time there. 1st time was bad, 2nd time was ok, but 3rd time was as above and we are done with it.

Is average at best. Service was good. Tables around us were dirty and no one cleaning them the whole hour we were there. I suspect they, like many if not most restaurants, are short on staff.

I'll just say this….I wish that there was a Shipwreck Grill in South College Station.

Went once for a business lunch...got hit on by the waitress and now in my opinion it's the best restaurant in town!

I was excited about it, but as weird as it sounds, Walkons is superior. To me it seems that they are just doing the bare minimum and phoning it in.

Nothing weird about it at all. Walk Ons is well run and has good food... Tad's has a few good plates and is not well run

That's what they do to get a tip… strippers don't care about your kids either

You're welcome for the advice

We have been twice. When I ordered a shrimp salad at lunch and the shrimp was the little bitty frozen shrimp one buys in the frozen section in Nebraska......we said enough was enough.

I'll echo this. Good spot for some cold beer and pretty good food. I will say I've always sat on the bar side so maybe it's a different experience on the restaurant side?

We've given them two or three tries now and I'm done with them. We had a large group lunch there recently. Due to the size, they tagged on the automatic 20% tip. Waitress didn't deserve 20% and instead gave us about 10% service. I ordered the blackened chicken Caesar salad. The chicken was bland and not blackened at all. No croutons. The Parmesan cheese they put on it was the grated kind like what you get out of a Kraft bottle at the store. The only thing I've had there that's been good is the fried shrimp. Everything else isn't worth the cost or poor service. Won't be going back.

Put me in the "won't go back" category. We've been three times and eaten there twice. Never thought the food was anything special and the service has always been lackluster. I wanted it to be good but it just isn't.

While I haven't been lately, we have been lots of times and never had a bad experience. Most of the time overall it is pretty good.

Our experiences at both Tad's and Walk Ons have been completely average, at best. I will go to Shipwreck or M-Beaux if I really want Cajun/seafood.

I have really wanted to like Tads but each trip has been less than mediocre and I'm past the point of returning again. Gave them at least half a dozen tries.

Walkons.. meh. Pretty much all fried options and honestly food is just not very good , again probably past the point of returning there also

Not making excuses but I think bad service is more common these days. Lack of labor and management on site is showing up on the service side.

Got crawfish bisque to go. There were maybe 2 crawfish in it. It used to have a good amount.

M-Beaux is by far the best if you have the time to go.

Head out on Hwy 30, go south on 244 when you get to Carlos, and it's about halfway to Anderson from there. It's the best Cajun/seafood in the area, IMO.

M Beaux's definitely has the best crawfish in this area. Boiled shrimp is also great. Their fried stuff and some specialty dishes are also very good. They don't have the best gumbo or etouffee, though.

The Shrimp Poboy I ate there was amazing! It was enormous too. I recommend that!
