So let me say this, the Egyptian Bass Pro is like a Bass Pro in a Pyramid. Ancient Egyptians living in Memphis, Egypt circa 4000 BC would marvel at its construction because they had no idea about glass or steel or a $10 elevator ride to the viewing platform. Dont be alarmed, but dinosaurs swim around in the pseudoswamp on the ground floor. Thats right: sturgeon. The only fish on the planet that viewed both the construction of the Nile and Mississippi pyramids. That was pretty cool, as well as the Ducks Unlimited display. They had some old-timey shotguns there. 2, 4, 6, 8 gauge shotguns. Massive barrels. So wide you could stick your big toe in them. Almost as wide as my nephews ear lobe gauges. After I saw all that, it was time for fudge, and this Bass Pro could also be called Fudge Pro. Nuff said. With a belly full of fudge, it was time for bowling. I threw about nine frames with a group of Italian men. Did you know that fine Italian shoes are also legal bowling shoes? That must be why theyre so expensive. Anyway, I liked how my ball came out of a catfish head after every frame. After the bowl, it was time for lunch, so I stepped into the restaurant. This is where things got weird. It wasnt peak hours, so I asked the host to seat me by the aquarium where there were plenty of open tables. He refused based upon some elaborate seating system that was probably developed by some pharoah must never be questioned. It was almost enough to put me off my food, but I endured and placed my order. Salmon on grits. Sounded like great southern fare. I had high hopes. They would be dashed. From across the dining room I gazed longingly at the salt water fish in the large cylindrical aquarium as I waited for my lunch. I wished I could be nearer, but maybe by divine intervention (or the hosts intuition) I was not sitting front row to witness the atrocity. My friends, a beautiful blue and yellow fish passed on to that ocean in the sky and sank to the floor. Immediately half a dozen other fish were upon its still warm corpse, nibbling at its remains. I was horrified. And I had ordered salmon. I collected myself just in time for my waitress to deliver my dish. The plating left something to be desired. A thin slice of overcooked salmon sat atop a bowl of lukewarm pooridge, and arugula adorned the sorry sop in a circle. I began to nibble at the tough salmon wondering if a bear in the wild could even sink his teeth into it. All the while, I could not get the images of the aquarium carnage from my brain. I quickly paid my $16+tax bill and ran from the pyramid. Two stars. Would not recommend the food.
This was by far my worst dining experience.Was on a date and they wanted to go to the Lookout at the Pyramid restaurant. So we went and paid to go up the elevator to our destination. She had made reservations for a window table, but none were available so we waited for one to be cleaned. We were brought menus the waiting came to take the order for drink and appetizer, and we ordered the scallops. The waiter acted like he did not understand my drink selection even though it was one of their specials on the menu. The scallops came and were cold, then the waiter comes and asked how they were. When I say there were cold he says why you didn’t tell me. Well because I have not seen you in like 30 min. Than he takes our orders and I discuss with him how I want my steak. (Medium well). To make a long story short it took them 3 tries to get the steak right. My date had eaten dinner and dessert, before they got my steak right. The manager came out and discussed how the steak would be comped on the house. And how he had called the HR rep to deal with the waiter because it was his fault. (Tell me what HR rep is at work at 9:30 pm on a Friday, yeah right you insulting my intelligence.) Anyway the messed up thing after thing, I lost my appetite and just wanted to leave. Then we stopped on the way out to get some fudge, and the couple next to us was describing the same type of ordeal in the restaurant at the bottom of the pyramid. I say save your money it is a total waste of time and energy, it ruined the night.
So I typically dont leave reviews, but this was a must. Its a great place to walk around in a fairly safe environment. The restaurant "Uncle Bucks" was horrible! !! And my hubby n I are usually easy to please!! We couldnt get service after sitting for 15min or more! Finally a guy was sitting next to us and he was an ex-employee so he flagged down a man he knew to help us. So after all that the other workers, (the black females; 1 of the girls was fat n the other 2 was twins) didnt even look our way the entire 2hrs we was there. Not to mention they did most of the customers that way. Everytime we did see those ladies, they was in a group of men face smiling away, like nobody else was present. Oh and by the way I described the ladies as black, etc... but Im black as well, so race is not a factor!!!!! And did I mention another worker walked up and told the ladies that they needed to clean up, n they just looked at her, so she began to clean up herself, n she was working the floor, not the bar. The food wasnt the best as well, it was dry and cold, not to mention it took 40min to receive it. This has got to be the worst I have ever had. EAT AT UNCLE BUCKS, AT YO OWN RISK!!!!####!!!!! P.S. not trying to be funny but what ever they put in dat food gave my husband BAD gas, right on da spot, n we still here , been waiting 30 min for our bill, n Im seriously thinking about just leaving!!!!
when they opened bass pro shop it was AMAZING now..it feels like a facade. first off they closed all the boats so you cant get on them. they say liability reason well if thats the case get rid of them and put something else there... 2 the ranges the pistol range you gotta bring your own pistol I think that has always been that way so its cool. but the archery range... apparently management made a decision unless your buying a bow you cant use the archery range apparently you have to purchase the bow first. Ive actually seen somome change their mind completely on buying one because they wouldnt let him test it our on the range. the staff have become lazy very few actually have knowledge in fire arms or archery from my experience 1 in 6 will if u can get to that one cause usually there are only 2 people working the counter. But it has its plus sides people are certuous they do ask if you need assistance and they will try and get Someone who knows something if they dont. I just hate they promised all this interactivity and dont hold up to it.
Horrible experience.. Lets start with parking. All of the oversized trucks and suvs like their spot and part of yours, too. If you take pride in your car...BEWARE. No signs to direct you anywhere. Good luck finding a bathroom. If you choose to eat at Uncle Bucks Fishbowl and Grill, just remember that the food is served cold and the salad is warm...all this after a 50 min. wait time. The hostess told us it would only be a 30 min. wait. The total tab for 2 sandwiches and some fish and chips for 2 adults and 2 teens (3 waters and 1 ice tea) was 61.77. The elevator ride up costs 10.00 per adult (age 13 is adult price). Weird, weird, weird vibe. Yes, the store has some cool stuff to look at and some fish swimming in very questionable, murky water. Save yourself some money and go to the top of the Peabody Hotel for free. I dont know what I was expecting, but it was just weird from the time we entered the store. And Im from Memphis, so i really tried to like it.
