Worst bar ever!. Worst service ever!!! Completely rude staff. Waitress asked me to leave a table, that I had been at for about 20 minutes drinking and talking with friends, because when it gets crowded they have a $150 min. to sit at a table. I told her I would in a minute, just wanted to finish my drink, she said that was fine as it wasn't crowded yet. 30 seconds later she came back and said "You have to leave now...there is a customer waiting for this table". I said give me another minute, just want to finish my drink. She said "You have to leave now". I got up, told her she was being rude and I would never come back. She said "Get out, I don't care if you come back"...she then grabbed my arm and twisted it in order to spill the rest of my drink on to the floor and yanked the glass out of my hand. I walked over to the bartender and asked to speak to the Manger and he said "no...it would take to long". So this bouncer walks over and tells me to leave. I say no problem, just want to speak with the manager first. This guys pushes me all the way out of the club, twisting my arm and threatening me. I had half a drink, was completely a gentlemen and professional the whole time and got treated like this. I would advise everyone to stay away from this place...horrible treatment. Borderline assault if you ask me.
Great little watering hole. I love anything old and nostalgic. My parents and Uncle have come to this spot for years. It was a very convenient place to meet up when I would come home from L.A. to the Fullerton Train station. I short walk across the street from the depot, was a nice place to enjoy a drink after work. All of the bartenders are friendly, and good conversationalists. Great Martinis.
Crowded. It's an ok place but always gets super crowded. the work staff can be asses at times.
Nostalgic bar is a landmark in Downtown Fullerton.. Bordering Fullerton's SOCO (South of Commonwealth) District, away from all the rowdiness of the area's other bars, is where you'll find Orange County's oldest drinking den. Open since 1925, The Continental Room resembles a 60s-style lounge and martini bar with jazz and Sinatra playing in the background and decor that combines everything from an antique phone booth and a working cigarette machine to dim red lighting. The place is packed nightly, usually after 10pm, so arrive a little early if you plan to find a seat or grab a table. Although a bar for all types, this venerable haunt is usually filled with modern day hipsters who refer to the bar as “The C Room."
great enviorment but difficult to get in at times, drinks a little pricey.
Love the live bands, great for dates but service is rude at times, there's a ligering smell in there...stinky!
Dj's think they own the place
WORST BAR - only because of stupid skinny "ho-looking" waitress!. The bartenders were nice. The atmosphere is great! But I would never ever ever go back to this place. I went there to see a band that I really love and I was having an awesome time until some stupid skinny, ugly waitress was giving dirty looks to my friend and then ended up telling my friend that she had to leave because she "didn't like her". So I was being nice and bringing my empty beer bottle back up to the bar instead of leaving it on the table... I was on my way out to meet my kicked out friend (for no apparent reason) and this dumb waitress pushes me and was like "Excuse Me!" OMG! The only reason I can see why she still works there is because she must be sleeping with all the other employees.... Or something! It's gotta be that because I am pretty sure that she would be fired if not. She is losing business for the place! Can't stand the place now. I WILL NEVER GO BACK!
Would NEVER go back. Had a horrible time - and a waitress literally pushed my friend. We went their to see the Chris Murray combo, initially i was excited about the atmosphere, but was soon plagued by one particular waitress. She was rude to me on two separate occasions. She had me thrown out of the bar, I was slightly intoxicated, and should have perhaps held my tongue, but she was extremely unprofessional and very rude so i called her a b^%ch. When my friend was leaving the bar to join me, the same waitress pushed her at the bar. I?ve never experienced a waitress as nasty as this one, and I would never go back to this bar. When we left the bouncers were yelling at us, and one threatened us as we were walking away. Would not recommend this place, where they are more loyal to a moody waitress, than paying customers.
In Fullerton, friends and I used to prefer the Continental, but not anymore. After too many times on separate occasions, being treated so rudely by waitresses, we would rather spend money on drinks elsewhere.
I've been there many many times and it seems that the waitresses just get more and more rude. Find another job if you are unhappy!
If a table is reserved, how hard is it to put a freakin' sign on it?!
I watched as groups of people were be told quite obnoxiously that they are not allowed to sit. Then I'd watch them walk out the door.
So did we after last night, I've walked out that door for the last time.
How terrible for a historic venue.
