I Beg Your Pardon... – I was also a guest at the wedding referenced above. In addition, my family and I have enjoyed dining at Charles at Smugglers Cove restaurant for years. The food is wonderful, the staff is professional and friendly, and the atmosphere is lovely; be it inside in the elegant dining rooms or out on the deck. The reason that the hosted alcohol was only served for an hour and a half is because the bride and groom, young and on a budget, had a financial limit on how much they could afford to host. So sorry that paying for the guests alcohol was not a priority for them. As for considering the prices of the drinks to be "outrageous," remember where you were at. It is a fine dining, French restaurant that carries only premium liquor...It's not Denny's! Perhaps the owner did not handle herself well when approaching issues with the bridesmaid referenced above, but after telling select guests several times to stop drinking the alcohol they had brought from home in the restaurant parking lot at least 3 times, she was fed up. As for her staff, they are wonderful servers. I know most by first name and would consider them friends after the great service they have provided for my family and I over the years. I stayed to help clean up. The bride and groom were overly happy with the evening and apologized for the disruptions caused by a few of their guests. It really is sad how only a few people in a large group can cause so much trouble. I am just glad I could be there to help the bride and groom wrap things up at the end of their special day and see that, for them, all was well.
I attended a wedding this last Saturday and it was horrible. The staff was rude, worst customer service ever. The owner, Janet, is the most insane person I have ever encountered. What is really horrible is that she owns the restaurant and instructs her staff to act like they want the guests to leave. The alcohol was only served for 1.5 hours then drinks for purchase for outrageous prices. Half the wedding left right after dinner, they didn't even stay for the reception, that has got to tell you something. I mean the best part of the wedding is the reception, and I have to be honest it was awful. The owner was drinking on the job in front of the guests. At the end of the night as I was leaving I saw her assault one of the bridesmaids in the parking lot and call her fat! I could not believe the course of events through that night. I feel bad for the bride and groom, they are young and just starting off, what a way for that woman to ruin their special day. The only positive thing I have to say is the food was good. My recommendation is: Don't go there!
