We visited in April or so, had dinner, seemed a little wierd when it was not busy, to be sittting 2 feet from the bar and waiting 10 minutes for a beer when neither bar or dining was busy, we literally watched the tender(who we later learned was the owner just mill around until he finally delivered the beer. he intoduced himself and the rest of the night and meal was great, i had a steak salad and it was fabulous!!! fast forward to our Anniversary the weekend of August 3rd. Seated at 8;30, bar half full, same at tables. Wiated too long for drinks and water, soda was flat as was beer. owner is glued to the bar as if its not his problem, too concerned with the six people drinking pints at the bar not the folks paying the bills at the tables. Our obviously overwhelmed waiter even did a place set up at the bar for 3 guys while Woody at the bar polished lemons!!! B.S. My wife said her food was as good as the first time except for the cold fries and flat soda. My steak salad was like they ran to burger king two towns over to get it, fatty, no flavor and wilted lettuce. we saw one group of 4 leave after the were seated and sat for 10 minutes and then told it was after 9 and had a limited menu to choose from, 2 different couples wait 15- 20 minutes for the check, both were very patient but annoyed, We will not return and advise you to do the same. I am a business owner myself and a very forgiving person but come on!!! The owner needs to take 3 steps back and punt, anybody can fleece the tourists and hibernate all winter, but i really think managemaent has no clue, hire a professional to run the place and all will be well.
