Living in Huntsville some friends and I decided to go here before a night out on the town. We got a booth near the kitchen and what we heard and saw I need to share. As a frequent restaurant visitor and a waitress at another restaurant in the area I notice these things and think they should be shared. First, our server was an older hispanic lady never carded any of us for our drinks; we all were over 21, but don't look anywhere close to it so that just seems kind of shady that an establishment in a college town doesn't card. Next, I couldn't understand why one or two servers seemed to never stop moving and then there were others that hung around the bar just chit-chatting, shouldn't they be doing something to help the ones that actually appear to be working? Our server appeared to be a manager, but didn't seem to help her servers out very much; but then again that was my observation. We got our drinks very quickly but I heard the booth behind us saying they seemed to wait forever for their drinks. Then, I could not understand why the hostess was required to clear off servers tables, didn't the servers just make the money off that table? Why should she have to clean it up for them? I hope she at least gets tipped out. And I have saved the best for last, I love listening to conversations between servers, yea I'm nosey I get it haha. But when I heard a few of the chatty servers by the bar say a little too loudly for patrons to hear that they had roaches I wanted to leave right then and there, unfortunately by the time I heard this I had already finished my food. I heard them saying a roach had crawled out of someone's fries right there at their table!! And that the restaurant was infested with them. We immediately asked for our check and got out of there. I will never go back and I hope you don't either.
