I have heard rave reviews of Parsons Table in Little River,South Carolina.
So my wife & adult daughter went there Thursday evening at about 5:45 PM.
As we entered there was a bar on the right, and a "host" who said?: Do you have reservations? I answered, No. So he then asked what was our last name ???
Any way the place was empty, so why all the questions?
So we were seated along the wall at a table. The place was an old church and well decorated. I was unsure why all the tables along the wall had white Paper over the table cloths, a bit tacky, but there were real cloth napkins!
So the waitress whose name was ZANE, helped us and took our order.
Upon leaving the table she picked up the menus and along with the menus came the paper tablecloth, tumbling my wife's Cosmopolitan, she was quite shocked.
So instead of changing our table, which a restuarant that attemps to be "high class" would have done, she wiped up the table with a bar rag. I wondered what would happen to the Cosmo? Well here came Zane with a small bar shaker and filled the same glass that tumbled with a refill, but as she filled the glass again, she proceeded to spill some of that, so she just walked away and we sat at a wet table.She took the rest back to the bar. I found that very unprofessional to say the least. So we got our salad and at 6:50 we Finally got our meals, a very long wait for an uncrowded restaurant. 1 hour and 5 minutes after sitting at the table! The food was good, not great but the experience was not worth the wait or trouble.
