This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
With Nowait, you can see the current wait times for nearby places to eat and put yourself on the waitlist of your favorite restaurant from anywhere - even if they do not take reservations.
• Save time by getting in line from home, work, or a private yacht
• Gain peace of mind by knowing how long the wait time is at any restaurant near you
• Feel like a wizard* by seeing your exact place in line
• Create harmony in your family by minimizing the wait for hungry children (and adults)
• Look like a VIP when you waltz right in and grab a table at a busy restaurant without waiting
• Go shopping, play soccer, take a nap, or spend a minute rating our app with your extra time
• Sit, or more likely stand around a crowded host stand, holding a dirty pager and hoping it buzzes soon
You can skip the wait at many of these popular restaurants using Nowait:
Buffalo Wild Wings
The Original Pancake House
...and thousands more local restaurants near you!
*Nowait doesn’t actually turn you into a wizard, though we would argue it’s close.
What's New in Version 3.1.16
To give you the best Nowait experience possible, we release regular updates with minor improvements and fixes.
Slow to Update & Often Inaccurate
The app is often slow to update. I checked a restaurant and couldn't put my name in because there was "no wait". I looked before walking to the restaurant from my car and got the same thing. I looked at the app in front of the host stand when I came in to get a table and they tell me it's a 20 minute wait. I refreshed the app and it took 10 minutes before a wait actually appeared.
Moreover if you have a party of four and all there is left are two tops, you can't put your name on the app because it still shows "come on in".
Significant glitches that need to be fixed.
App is misleading and missing a critical component.
This app should be revised to allow guests to sign up when they are on their way to the restaurant.
We have a screenshot showing the app telling us there is literally no wait at the restaurant we chose to visit. Only 10 minutes later when we arrived, the app showed ELEVEN parties ahead of us with a 45 to 55 minute wait! Restaurant staff said 10 minutes earlier, they had a table free but then "everyone came at the same time."
This app should be revised to allow potential restaurant guests to sign up with an ETA if there is truly "No Wait" at the moment they are on their way to the restaurant. Otherwise, we don't need the aggravation of this app.
"Parties Ahead of You" Counter is Inaccurate and Misleading
We reserved a spot in line via the app when there were 29 parties ahead of us with a 40-55 minute wait time. Rather then waiting at the restaurant we decided to wait at home for the counter to get low enough for us to go. I carefully monitored the "Parties Ahead of You" counter, watching it decrease in about increments of 2.
When the counter hit 7, it then jumped to our table being immediately available. Because we were at home, we did not have enough time to get to the restaurant to secure our table, and our table was vacated. We then had to wait another 20 minutes to get seated.
This app is inaccurate, inconsistent and is slow to update. I get that restaurant wait times are fairly unpredictable, but jumping from 7 to 0 is just ridiculous. I wish Pluckers would do better then this mediocre excuse for an app.
Also if you managed to get through this whole thing big shoutout to you.
