  • Too crowded

    The main point of the episode was that they couldn't cop with the demand, but if Gordon hadn't invited so many people this wouldn't have been a problem. with only one chef, it was far too many to cope with for any restaurant, even Gordon would have failed to cook for so many at one time.
  • good episode...

    Another solid episode of Kitchen Nightmares. I was just reading the notes of this episode on the site and it's really sad how much the episodes are doctored to make them interesting. Oh well, I don't really mind. This time Gordon went to Finn McCool's and helped a struggling family business. The cook son was pretty arrogant and the rest of the family just argued with him a lot. It was sad how they invited the firefighters twice and screwed up twice. It wasn't a complete success because people did leave unhappy. Overall, this was another good episode with interesting people and a great turn-around.moreless
  • It's the same old, same old you've seen 6 times already. But this is Reality TV, and this is Kitchen Nightmares at it's best.

    Basicially you know the main plot of these episode's, so let's skip that shall we.

    The show is decent as it is, but there were some things that added to the experience.

    The kitchen was dirty as hell, and like in Episode 2, Gordon had them along to clean the entire kitchen. Good since, you can't work in a disgusting kitchen, and when you keep it dirty, CLEAN IT UP.

    Gordon throwing up his Shepard's Pie, was new and pretty sad when you look at it. Another point about the chef below.

    Now when Gordon got around the whole town to come into the grand relaunch.....I thought that was pretty stupid actually. No restaurant could survive that many people at the same friggin time.

    Although you see the chef as a drunken idiot in the first half, he suddenly comes back happy as can be. That's because the producers couldn't film his obvious change {Somebody had to have talked to him}, because advertiser's took up 13 minutes out of 60, for profit from their commercials. But that's understandable.

    This is a very decent episode, and it gets 9.1 for the sheer excellence of it.moreless
  • Gordon Ramsay visits a restaurant in the resort town of South Hampton, NY. It is a family business tearing the family apart. This Irish Pub needed some radical improvements and with the chefs help they turn it around.moreless

    Chef Ramsay does one of his usual makeovers of this falling apart reataurant. The major difference between this episode and the first part of this season is that this one is family run and he is not only able to help the business, but the family as well. This show continues to amaze at how badly run many restaurants are across America and how the smallest changes can make a huge impact. Finn McCools gets the assistance it needs to round the corner and become successful the way the whole family always dreamed it would happen. They just needed that small kick in the butt to get going. Once again this show demonstrates why Gordon Ramsay is one of the most successful and well respected chefs in the entire world!moreless
