BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (WCCO) — There’s a new restaurant and bar at Mall of America that is chasing the nice right out of Minnesota.
It’s called Dick’s Last Resort — and its made its name by being rude to customers. But it’s not stopping people from coming back for more.
According to Dick’s, they’re all about having a good time.
“It’s having fun with each other and having fun about each other,” said Jerry Grim, general manager. “Sometimes it gets a little personal.”
Call it service, with sarcasm.
“My name is Jen G. I put the F-U in fun and the beauty in beautiful here. But I do have one rule. Don’t ask stupid questions,” said one entertainer.
The bar and restaurant fills the former Planet Hollywood space at Mall of America, which was vacant for 10 years. Until now.
The servers are entertainers, trained to bring the rude.
Plan on bringing your kids? No worries, they scale their sarcasm based on customers’ reactions.
With locations in Boston, Dallas and Las Vegas does a restaurant found on abrassive have a place in Minnesota, the land of nice?
“They’re loving it,” Grim said.
Dick’s Last Resort serves southern comfort fare like ribs, honey glazed chicken and catfish.
They also have a stage where live acts play music Friday and Saturday nights.
