I went to dinner last week to this restaurant with my three boys. I called ahead to make the reservation. When I asked the owner if there was a children's menu, she said yes. When I asked her what was on it, she told me she was too busy to tell me and that I should go to the web site.........No, I'm not kidding. Wow. My family used to own a restaurant in Florida. Definitley not what I wanted to hear, and by the way, the children's menu only had about 7 items on it, so it would have taken her 10 seconds to tell me. When we got there we waited outside for a while, even with a reservation. It seems to be a popular place, even though the people who own and operate are very rude. Upon sitting down close to 9pm, we asked our server if we could order since it was getting late. She took our order and walked away. I overheard another server at the next table a few minutes later telling her table about specials. Our server never mentioned the specials. I called her over to ask her why she didn't tell us, and she replied "you told me you wanted to order." ???????? She still should have gone over the specials breifly. I then caught her in another part of the restaurant complaining to another server of what had just happened. In other words, she was all bent out of shape and defensive, when in reality, she had made a mistake. The bottom line, she was a nasty woman, and I would NEVER go back to that restuarant. It's not like it's a bargain.....my lobster was still $45 just like the next place. I believe in treating patrons with respect. Totally ruined my dinner.
