Jon Taffer knows his stuff!
lcorlett
Bar Rescue is a great business makeover show because Taffer knows what makes businesses work, and understands how they can fail.
Trey Duskin III
Jon Taffer is a no-nonsense straight shooter and is the best in the bar/restaurant business.

This is by far the best reality TV show by far. Would be interesting to see a litany of bars that were rejected for saving by John Taffer. Also, how about a follow-up show on bars one-year after the makeovers. A very entertaining series.

Bar Rescue is a series that currently is running on Spike. The basic premise for the series has Jon Taffer, a bar consultant, helping failing bars improve to avoid closing for good. This typically involves repairing worn or out of date design schemes and revamping bar food and drink menus (and teach bartenders the basics in a lot of cases).

This series has a lot in common with shows like "Kitchen Nightmares" and "Restaurant Impossible": Taffer comes in and gives the owner a necessary kick in the butt. I will say that he is good at what he does. If bar owners are receptive to his advice, sales and earnings typically show big improvements. He also seems like he really wants the featured bar owners to succeed.

This is a great show for marathon viewings, which Spike typically has when new episodes are premiering. A few weeks ago me, my girlfriend, and her younger brother and father all spent our Sunday afternoon vegging out with this series. Can't wait until new episodes start up again in July of 2013!

Bar Rescue is a great business makeover show because Taffer knows what makes businesses work, and understands how they can fail. This episode is the best example of how "wanting to own my own bar" and actually being successful are two different things -- just because you like pirates doesn't mean everyone else does, and it certainly doesn't mean you can make money off of it. And thats what business are supposed to do - make money. Deny that and you're an idiot or delusional, or both.

Jon Taffer knows his stuff! The shows are fun to watch and insightful into the bar and restaurant business. The business makeovers are inspiring.

If you are a bar owner, watch and learn. If you are a bar patron, enjoy observing business situations similar to your favorite watering holes.

Another season, more stubborn owners. More of Mr Taffer having to argue his point to make these people realize that he knows what he is talking about and can make them money if he follows what he knows. Yes change is hard, but when what you have been doing hasn't been working and your a month or less from loosing everything then what do you have to loose? Especially when they've called him in? I love his no non sense attitude, how he cares about the products and the very real possibility of people getting sick from a dirty kitchen. He has a passion for what he does and doesn't settle for anything less then perfection.

This show keeps me wanting more & more. Jon Taffer is a no-nonsense straight shooter and is the best in the bar/restaurant business. The show is very well produced and educational but combined with Jon's "direct" approach, it is fun to see an entire business transformed in 3 days. I highly recommend it!!
