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.

With Nowait:
• 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

Without Nowait:
• 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
First Watch
Texas Roadhouse
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.

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.

Depends on the restaurant

Que Es

I've used this app for many restaurants and it works perfectly. I can see how many parties are ahead of us and know exactly how long we have to wait.
Recently I did go to a restaurant that stated that they were not able to enter "call aheads" into the wait times, so when we thought there were only three parties ahead of us, there were actually ten parties ahead of us. I'm not sure if it was an app issue or a restaurant issue, but either way, this should somehow be fixed.
