Home to the first Oktoberfest held in the United States, Blob's Park stays true to its German heritage by serving authentic fare and imported brews. It's like Munich's famed Hofbrauhaus, but in Jessup!
The evening of Novermber 25th, 2011 I arrived at about 6:30 for our reservation, which is when they open. The clueless but very nice lady charged me a $30 cover charge for a 10 year old. (10 and younger are supposedly free I found out) My wife and I were in town from Milwaukee for Thanksgiving and were we with my parents and my two younger brothers and their families. We had their Groupon deal and our cover was included.
They seated us right near the toilets and when we asked to move they sat us at the other end of this big room. It took a long time for the server to take our drink order and even longer to get our drinks. My Pilsner beer was room temperature. One would think a "beer garder" would know how to serve beer. Then we waited another long stint to place our orders. They of course were out of what I wanted, a Pork Shank.
During my wait I bought a nice looking shirt but I think the clueless but nice old lady pocketed the $10 because she didn't charge tax or give me a receipt a bag or anything as proof of the sale. I don't know if she is dishonest but she shouldn't be responsible for anything. I bet the IRS might be interested in how they handle cash.
Then after waiting a seriously long time for, I don't know maybe a beer garden might want to sell beer and take another order, but that was not the case. I went to the bar and got drinks for me and my two young daughters. It is about 8:15 and no sign of our food or ther server for that matter. I was thinking about ordering a pizza to find out who would serve us or notice us sooner.
At 8:40 I left and made sure I told the nice but clueless woman I was going out to dinner.
I only rated this dump a 1 star because I couldn't rate it lower. I will make sure to tell people in Milwaukee that see me wearing their shirt to avoid this place. I would suggest they get their act together or shut down again. Find out how to treat GUESTS IN YOUR ESTABLISHMENT.
I just found out that the food was cold when it came out. Hopefully, my family will seek a refund too.
