Wordless Wednesday: iPad Table Menus?


A). They had Nutella on the menu (my daughter's fave)
B). The menus are all on tablet (my first time seeing that, ever)!

That's a new one, but I am not surprised. We live in an age of ever changing technology!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Now that is cool. Hope it was secured to the table.

Janine Huldie said...

You cannot go wrong with Nutella and our local Chili's has something similar to this with being able to order dinner, pay the check and even play games on a device like this. Pretty cool :)

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

That's a first for me too!

Tamar SB said...

Definitely cannot go wrong with nutella - and ipad menus, insane!

stevebethere said...

Well that's new to me too....yayyyy for Nutella too heheh!

Have a nuttastic week & thanks for cartwheeling by Rosey ;-)

Felicia Carter said...

Nutella on a menu would be fantastic! I have seen table menus, just not very many.

Julie Corbisiero said...

Hi Rosey, Nutella is all the rage now! I have never seen a tablet menu before! I do like the regular menus though. Enjoy the rest of the week.

Whatever works. The "in" thing here is to write the menu on a chalkboard. That's ok, but I'm looking for meals for 3 people. By the time I get back to my seat I forget what I'm ordering. Especially if there's a bunch of fancy names for the food.

Fun post and to have nutella on the memory ~ your daughter must have been thrilled ~ Happy Week to you xoxo

Kristi Maloney said...

Love Nutella! I've never seen a menu on a tablet like that! Very cool. :)

Optimistic Existentialist said...

A menu with nutella is MY kind of menu LOL

Pat Hatt said...

Never saw them on a tablet before, bet soon they'll be doing it at many a shore

Sandee said...

Well this is an easy way to update the menu indeed. I love this and I'm not surprised either.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Holy Ghost Writer said...

Nutella works for me

Melissa @ My Recent Favorite Books said...

The Nutella menu item sounds delicious! =) I have never seen those tablet menus, very interesting!

Dallas Socials said...

Not a bad list. There are a few restaurants in my area that allow you to order from the table without the waitor even being present.

Joyce Lansky said...

I'm having a hard time with this one. Are the menus built into the table? Is it electronic? I've seen a lot of menus on tables and am not seeing how this one stands out. Sorry, but I need a wider angle shot to get this one. I can't tell if the cake and coffee is a photo or the actual item on a shelf. It looks real, but surely they wouldn't put actual food on every table to advertise it. ???

LOVE Nutella, I'd want that dessert too. wait, could you order without a server too?

Lindsey Paris said...

digital menus!! Cool - it's totally the future!

mail4rosey said...

It's an ipad, and that's what they're using for the menu now. It was my first time seeing a tablet used for a menu. :)

TaMara Sloan said...

I love the idea of nutella on a menu! I've never seen a digital menu, but I'm sure they'll become quite popular quickly.

Elephant's Child said...

A digital menu? My dinosaur self is scared.
The best menu I have seen (yet)? A restaurant/cafe down by the lake with a separate menu for the dogs. Who are welcome.

Kristen Campbell said...

Oh, interesting! I haven't seen menus on tablets here yet, but now we can pay on our own little digital monitors right at our tables! Ah, technology!

Scott said...

I don't think I've ever been to a place where all the menus are on a tablet. I have to imagine that it would be handy and easier to see nice photos of what you're ordering.

jaime said...

I first encountered the iPad menu ordering system at an airport restaurant a couple of years ago. It was awkward and confusing, even though it looked cool.

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

We used to visit a local restaurant when we lived in a different town. They had all their menu on the paper placemats they had on each table.

Stefany T said...

The tablet menu is interesting! I wonder how they keep them from being stolen.

Heather @ Girl Gone Mom said...

That is pretty cool seeing technology trickle down - soon we won't need waiters ;)

Faythe M.A said...

thats a new one to me also. now I would go hungry if I had to place my order digitally!! Faythe @ GrammyMouseTails

Clairejustine oxox said...

Yum, Nutella is my favourite too :)

Chrystal Mahan said...

A lot of places are trying to save money. I am noticing more table menus and less host/hostesses. The wait staff is taking over doing most of the jobs.

Tina Marie said...

Which restaurant is that? I want a digital menu. Thanks for sharing!

Cathy Kennedy said...

A few years back, we ate at a restaurant that had their menus on tablet that was built into the table top. Really cool stuff, I tell you. I thought that may be a sign of things to come, but have yet to see any other restaurants pick it up. I guess technology will have to wait for our area to catch up. #WW

Dina said...

that is really need. I like the others hope its attached and not stolen.

Lady Lilith said...

That looks like a very clever idea. No more waiting around for the waiter to bring them in.

Anonymous said...

I've seen lots of inserts on the table. I love how restaurants now have Nutella on the menu

Marie Moody said...

hmmmm I thought I stopped by already, but oh well if I did here's another comment. mmmmmmmmmmm NY CHEESECAKE mmmmmmmm I gotta go get me some! I love me some cheesecake and a cold glass a milk. I could make a meal of just that! hehehehe Thanks for stopping by dear friend! I made sure I'm following all your social networks too! hugs

~ Noelle said...

we went to a place that had tablets on the table... the menu was on it and then you could add the games feature (for a buck) to let the kids play........

NC Sue said...

Thank you for sharing at the new home for Wordless Wednesday (on Tuesday)! Please come back each week and link up:

That is different. I still know so many people that would not go there because of it. We still have so many people that are not into technology so I hope they have another printed version for them.

GayNYCDad said...

I have a house full of Nutella purchased on sale, we all love it! And an iPad menu seems efficient, but it probably needs to be tied to the table!

Pam said...

I have never seen a menu on a tablet before, but that's such a cool idea! It would make it easier to change daily specials, prices, and add new items to the menu.

MommaDJane said...

Our local Chili's restaurants have table top menus and going electronic now. Although they are not using iPads quite yet.

Tami said...

How cool is that!?!? I am absolutely not surprised though, we are moving by leaps and bounds when it comes to technology.

Celebrity VIP Lounge said...

Nutella is certainly in abundance in our household! My kids love it. Amber N

The Mommy-Files said...

Can you believe I've never had Nutella before? I went to a restaurant and we could order on iPads. It was pretty crazy.

Couponing in Central Florida! said...

First, I LOVE nutella, so this is my kind of restaurant. And on an ipad? Amazing idea! So easy to change the menu as needed.

Sarah-Louise Bailey said...

I would so want to play with the tablet and see what else it could do - does it have games to play while you wait for your order lol! x

Danielle @ We Have It All said...

What?!? That is such a great idea. Better than those little generic games at Chill's!

Krystal Butherus said...

I love that the tablet is a menu! How tech savvy!

Savory Experiments said...

Flemings has these for their wines, they are amazing! I love the idea!

Binky said...

Smart idea, and they could be very interactive, too.

Mel@Mellywood's Mansion said...

Hmm I dont know, I love my ipad but what more fun than flipping through the oversized menus and deciding what to eat. Certainly interesting, they want to watched they dont go walkabout

Ai Sakura said...

Some restaurants here use iPads or iPad minis for menus too. As much as I'm a tech user, I still prefer the good ol' physical menus! Easier to just pick and let someone else do the writing haha

Ai @ Sakura Haruka

Amanda Ripsam said...

I haven't seen a menu like this before either I think it's a cleaver idea not sure how much more useful this would be but I do love Nutella

A Helicopter Mom said...

We saw something similar at a UNOs restaurant in Virginia. I didn't like it. I don't mind doing the work at a fast food place, but at a sit-down restaurant, I prefer having a server who knows the menu take our order.

April Mims said...

I haven't seen an ipad menu yet but it doesn't surprise me at all!

Pam said...

I have been seeing this more and more. I don't like it, LOL. I want a menu in my hand.

Carly said...

Wow, that is crazy! I know Chili's has a tablet-like thing at the table where you can order dessert from it and pay for your bill that way.

Theresa Mahoney said...

When I went to Bonefish Grill a few weeks back, the waiter was taking our order on an iPad. Technology is everywhere I tell ya!

fancygrlnancy said...

That is pretty cool. I'd worry about it getting broken.

Christina Morley said...

Those must be expensive menus! Nutella is always a winner at our house too. http://abooksandmore.blogspot.com/2014/07/anniversary-and-ww-linky.html

The Positive MOM said...

How cool is it to have iPad menus, especially when they have something you would love to eat listed on them. Bon appetite!

TerriAnn van Gosliga said...

First time I've seen this as well. Isn't it tough to always keep it on and charged?

Terra Heck said...

I've never seen a menu on a tablet either. Interesting! I really like Nutella too.

Anonymous said...

I had no idea this is even a possibility! Wow.

Lisa Ladrido said...

I learn something everyday! I didn't know about this one. I think it's pretty cool. I have never tasted Nutella, I have heard so many good things about it too!

April Decheine said...

Ha ha I love that, very creative. I bet the younger generation can read this even better.

Tracey said...

I've been to a few restaurants that had this. I find it so modern and neat!

Emily @ Busy Mommy said...

That's interesting. They aren't worried about people stealing them? I bet this wouldn't be cost effective as regular menus!

Creating, Cooking, and Kiddos said...

This is fun. I've not seen them yet but I'm sure it is going to be a popular option.

Jeanine said...

Genius! I would worry about them being stole or broken though. My husband works in a restaurant and they so everything on iPad minis as employees but this is neat!

Jenn said...

I've never seen something like this. There's so much technology out there!

Christie C said...

Saving the company money for sure! Hope they had wifi

Cheap Is The *New* Classy said...

I think this is cool! At our local Chili's, they now have little tablets on the tables where you can play games, and pay if you are using a credit card! What an advance in technology!

MikiHope said...

That is definitely a new concept to me. I have not seen it used in restaurants yet. I can see how it would be easier--changing the menu with a flick of the fingertip!

Angie Barrett said...

Oh my gosh, how neat is that! I've never seen that before!

Rachael Ebner said...

I've never seen menus on a tablet before. There's a first time for everything!

Cynthia Wright said...

I saw these at Applebee's the other day and was pretty impressed. Very neat.

BrettBMartin said...

The Cin-Nutella Sticks sound delicious. I never knew they had menus on tablets before.

Cam said...

They have those at a restaurant around here. I love it!

Shell said...

That's kind of cool! It makes sense, though.

Melissa Coleman said...

I have never seen this done but with how tech savy today's world is i'm not surprised.

Doreen said...

That is really cool!!!

I have never seen anything like this! I am not sure how cost effective it really is, but way cool!
