My husband and I have a weekend house on the beach within walking distance of Waltz and until recently we had not dined there because of local rumors about the “blond frizzy haired lady” and what she might do to one’s food if one rubs her the wrong way. I had also heard from many neighbors that the service was so atrocious that it was almost comical and that only John’s Pass tourists go there. Last weekend I decided that the rumors had probably been exaggerated and seeing that the place is just so cute and a short walk from our house, I talked my husband into trying it with me. Well, the service was so horrible and the frizzy haired owner was in fact so rude to us that we left before our meal was served. A foursome at the bar left too, equally outraged, before they received their food. (We all went to the bar at Bubba Gumps and bonded over the experience.) Basically, the blonde lady came to our table while my husband was in the restroom and asked me to move to a table by the bathroom since I was by myself. I told her that my husband was in the restroom and that I didn’t think he would mind but that I just wanted to ask him when he got back to be polite. (I assume she wanted us to move from our 4 top to a 2 top so they could accommodate another party.) Her response was, “well, let him know that isn’t optional.” I said, “excuse me?’ and she said, “you can move over there or you can get up and wait for another table. I need to make money.” We left as soon as my husband returned from the restroom. I cannot believe that this place stays in business. It obviously relies on unsuspecting tourists who are there once!
