Paid version is nearly a scam
By , for WP 3.5.1

Unless you are comfortably knowledgeable in CSS, this plugin is not for you. Like other reviews, this plugin (and the paid version) just puts information on your webpage more neatly - something anyone can do for an extra 15-20 minutes. I purchased the extended version thinking it would be easier, and it sure wasn't. With no support, it is very difficult to edit your pictures, fonts, colors, text, and alignment. Again, there is no support for this plugin, especially the PAID version. I ended up having to make my own menu in Microsoft Word, which although is a tad more tedious, I have more control and placement options, something this plugin and its paid version make difficult. However, if you're CSS savvy and know coding well enough, then this should be a good plugin. But if you're like other business owners who don't have enough time to fully learn the ins and outs of web development, then stay away from this or hire someone else to make your menu.

You Need to Pay to Use Full Features - Limited Functionality
By , for WP 3.7.1

1. The plugin has just one sample menu.
2. You can edit that menu and replace it with your own menu items.
3. You can not create a new menu even though there is a button to do that but clicking on the button will show a popup that you need the extended version.
4. You can not add icons, you can not even delete the ones that come by default with the plugin.
5. The plugin is not very well designed, and if you have to add custom stylesheets for the menu then why not just create it with HTML and CSS on your own?

It does work and will allow you to show a restaurant menu but it is not a good way to do it.

I am not against paid plugins, I just feel that it is kind of rude to lure people into installing something and then ask them to pay up. I think this is kind of rude.

The description of the plugin is quite misleading for example it says

Place restaurant menus anywhere with shortcodes

Works but frontend design is not good
By , for WP 3.6.1

The function of the plugin has been well realized. It is difficult to understand the frontend design. Also as Webdesigner. The product list is not only unsightly but illogical and size of the images of the products can not be changed. The fact that the plugin uses its own database table, we find good.

Makes its own database tables
By , for WP 3.6.1

This looked promising based on the feature description until I looked at the code. It creates its own database tables instead of working with WordPress' custom post type, custom taxonomy, and custom field functionality.

Disappointed
By , for WP 3.5.1

Looks promising, but would be nice if they explicitly said that most of the features require an "extended" version that costs money in the home description. Couldn't do a whole lot without the paid version. The free parts I could have written on my own in my wysiwyg editor.

Very disappointed.

Seems to work but you have to pay
By , for WP 3.5

Works ok, you can create 1 menu.. free, but no images can be inserted, no icons can be uploaded in free version. It costs $25 at the moment to get the "upgraded" version. I wonder why they show the thumbnails and nice images functionality in the screenshots if that is actually NOT included.. Wasted an hour testing this.. Now, I rather copy/paste from my MS word that has all the wistles and get the same thing using the post pages as they are.. so this is not a big deal.. I mean who would use this plugin? Certainly not a professional designer or a restaurant, so it's kind of pointless, thanks for trying.
