Good Food, Horrible Service – My husband and I went here for lunch when I first moved up here. We ordered our food and never saw our server again until our food came out. Our drinks ran empty and until we were done eating and had our napkins on our plate he did not come back. He was kind of rude and basically took care of all his other tables but us. I realize we are a young couple but I served once to and I never once treated a table like that. He was not overly busy either because he had 3 tables he was serving including us and the restaurant was not busy. It does not matter the age of a table we should be treated the same. We left him a 20% tip because I do not believe in leaving less but had he served us better he would have gotten more. I do not like feeling like we are less important because we look young. By young I look like I am 16 I realize that but I am 22 and my husband and I are well off and leave good tips because I have been in his shoes before serving and it is not always pleasant. We are nice people and say Thank You to much and get one refill usually during dinner. We were by no means an annoying table and I don't think it would have been to difficult to fill our drinks and ask us how are food was or anything. We have not been back since and I am sure not all the servers are like that and we will go back one day. It just is not on the top of our list because of our bad experience.
