After eating Lunch here a few years, and loving the Mussels appetizer, we wanted to eat Lunch here again while staying at The Common Man Inn. After sitting down, we realized there was no appetizer menu. We asked the server, who stated "Oh yeah, they forgot to print the appetizers on the menu". Poor business technique if you ask me. If we hadnt inquired about the Muzzells, they would have lost out on an extra sale. Seems to me, the staff should be instructed to mention that appetizers are available but not on the menu. After being seated for a few minutes we noticed the Host was asking people what kind of water they wanted, Bottled or Iced, and offering the Help yourself cracker station. We were never offered a choice of water, nor were we invited to the cracker station. Again, poor business move and extremely unprofessional. Apparantly because we look young, we must not be worth mentioning these things to. After our Mussells came, we noticed it came with two small pieces of garlic bread, and a huge bowl of broth. Being Portuguese, we always use bread for dipping in broths, soups, stews, etc. After dissapearing for another 15 minutes, the Server finally came over and asked us how our App. was. We requested more bread for dipping. She came back out with a freezing cold bowl of day old chunks of bread that were clearly going to be used to croutons. It was disgusting. Again, she dissapeared for another ten minutes, and when she finally came over, we asked her for some rolls. She explained to us the only bread they have available is Pumpkin Bread. At that point the broth was cold, so we let it go. The biggest problem we have with the poor excuse of no bread is, I was served a sandwich with the exact same type of bread used for the croutons, and my Husband was served a fresh bun for his Cheeseburger. The only thing way I can justify that situation is the Server was extremely lazy and could'nt be bothered enough to walk into the kitchen and ask for two more pieces of garlic bread. When we ate there three years ago the food was delicious and the service was great. I will never go back there again. This is the second Common Man owned restaurant that has left a very bad taste in my mouth.
