The service at The Mull is possibly the worst I've ever had. We sat in the crowded take-out area watching table after table become vacant, only to sit loaded with dirty dishes for 15-20 minutes while the wait staff looked at pictures on each others' iPhones. If we had been anywhere other than Mabou, we'd had left. But without other options nearby, we waited 40 minutes for a table, only to have the party behind us served ahead of us.
So why don't I hate The Mull? Because the food, when we finally got it, was outstanding. The only place I've ever had sole that good was on the dockside in north Germany. My husband's scallops were the best meal he had on our two-week trip. The food was so good we even considered coming back the next night!
I'm not sure how to manage a Mull meal. Even going late doesn't help much. The couple two behind us didn't get seated until after 8:30, even though by then the room was virtually empty of diners, with six vacant tables no one could bother to bus.
Just don't come when you are already hungry. I actually spoiled my meal by asking for bread when we sat down--by then I was starving! As a result, I couldn't finish my delicious fish.
