This is a bit long, but read all the way thru it please. We went here with another couple last night for dinner. Absolutely one of the worst dining experiences in our lives. Monday is kids eat free night. Apparently it is kids run free night. Let me start at the beginning. When you go here you always have to wait. Doesn't matter if the place is half empty. You have to sit down and wait. Must be corporate policy. We wanted a high table because one of our party is disabled. (Leg amputee) They tried to sell us on the high table in the front window in the bright sun. We asked if there were other high tables available. "We are cleaning one I think". I go back to the bar area to wait and see 4 empty high tables. After we are seated, the fun begins. Kids are running everywhere. Their main hangout is back around the men's bathroom. Right in front of the doors. They are running and squealing, cutting cart wheels. They were playing hide and seek and the girls were hiding in the men's restrooms. One of the little girls walked in on a guy using the bathroom. When the disabled person got up to go to the bathroom he had to ask them to move. Then they started squealing and screaming, acting like he was scaring them. (He has one leg). While he was in the bathroom they stood at the door and laughed and giggled and then squealed again when he came out. I told the waitress she needed to go tell the parents to control their kids. She said I would have to speak to the manager. Manager comes over and I explain the situation. She listens and then pretends like she goes over and speaks to one couple. I say pretends because she obviously didn't mention anything about the kids because nothing changed. I ask to talk to the manager again. I ask her directly if she has asked the parents to control their kids. She says "she can't". Says the owner has told her not to do that. Says the owner is "Zack". That I can call and talk to him tomorrow. I will. Anyway, we thought it could get no worse... it does. The DJ comes in to do the music bingo. It then becomes apparent why they lied about the availability of the high tables near the bathroom. They hold them for the DJ's family and friends. Guess what? They all bring their kids. Not for dinner mind you... they turn them out. They came in with bags filled with blankets, pillows and toys. They dump them all on the floor in front of the men's bathroom and have a slumber party. When the bingo started, some of the kids went and stood in the middle of the floor and danced. We had had enough. We paid our bill and left. Empire is supposed to be a sports bar. People are drinking and acting as people do when they drink. Hardly a child friendly environment. They (Empire) needs to pick their clientele. Is it adults or is it a place where adults can bring their kids, turn them out unattended and drink beer and do shots while they run wild and disrupt others? Zack, you can call me at 803-984-8857 to discuss.

We have been eating at Empire since they opened their doors. i made a delivery order and requested my sons friend delivery. i was told that it would take 45 minutes to deliver (which is pretty common). my sons friend text him twenty minutes after the order was placed that he was on his way. normally that is a good thing. However, our pizza was actually cold and the texture of the crust was very dry and crunchy. i called to complain and ask if the pizza could have been from a previous order or old. I was told that the delivery actually did take 45 minutes. when i told the manager that i was looking at my sons phone and the text was exactly 20 minutes after the order was placed and we live 2.25 miles from Empire, he proceeded to argue with me that i was wrong. the point is the pizza was not edible. when i told him the pizza was really not good, he hesitated and said"i guess i can make you another one?" the correct response would be to first apologize, whether it was 20 or 45 minutes was not the issue and it should not have been insinuated TWICE that i was wrong when there was obvious proof i was not. Next would be to INSIST that a fresh pie be made, not act like you are doing me a favor for making my food correctly! Never again....too many other restaurants to choose from.

Your lucky to get your order right. It takes forever then it comes wrong. They don't even adjust the price you pay. What a racket.

The customer service at the riverchase location is HORRIBLE, they offer no solutions to any issues that arise and if you ask for management they are even worse!

We came in around 10:15 On a Saturday and the sign at the door stated to come and seat yourself as the dining area was closed. We went to the bar section where one of the servers pointed us to. We waited for 20 mins at a table for service. However, my friend had to get up and go to the bar to get service. When I proceeded to order o was told that the kitchen had closed and I could not order what I was trying to order. First time at this location and needless to say I will NOT be back. Very poor customer service!

Ordered a pizza about 6 weeks ago. The order took an hour and a half and the toppings were all wrong and the pizza was ice cold. I told them I would eat it as i was starving and didn't want to wait any longer. They offered me a credit for my next order I called today to ask for the credit and I was told they are only good for a month and then they are discarded. Great service. I know you are busy so it's obvious a simple complaint means nothing to you.

I had a horrible experience at the local Empire in Fort Mill. The staff is the most unprofessional non customer servicing people I have ever met. I had an order place an hour before hand and when I went to pick up my order I noticed a lot of hostility and rudeness toward the (African American) customers in front of me but I continued to patiently wait. Well when my time come to be rung up I politely asked the cashier if my order had everything in it and she ensured it did and proceeded to check me out. I thought nothing of it due to her reading my order back as ringing me up. Well after getting back to work I realized my wings were gone so I called and asked about the wings and advised they had been left off to be called a liar and to be told I was mistaking. I advised I could do no such thing and there was no way I would miss a whole order of wings so I was told to come back and pick them up. When I returned to get the rest of my order the cashier Siera insisted on saying she didn't mean it that way etc, I simply replied there's no need now all I want is what I paid for so I could leave. She got very rude and said that I could leave and snatched the rest of my order off of the counter and tried to give me a refund. I advised her I didn't want a refund I wanted what I'd ordered and she wasn't going to snatch anything. As I left her and her coworkers snickered and cursed. They are the most rudest people you ever want to meet whom has no experience what so ever in customer service 101. Do not eat from there, they are beyond racist and I refuse to spend my money where we aren't welcome!

Waited 1 hr plus for to go pizza, and after being told several times it was almost ready, was finally told it hadn't been started and that I could continue waiting (with no time estimate) or get refund. Am regular customer but very poor experience will make me look for other options going forward
