This was the one restaurant that my husband was really looking forward to visiting, and we were all very disappointed. The service was bad and ridiculously slow. There were placards on the table "explaining" the slow service: food from scratch takes a while to make, but our wait time was too long. There was only one other party, which had received their food, so there was no explanation for the pitiful service. My husband's beer bottle sat dry and empty, and we couldn't even find our waitress to ask for another one. By the time that she finally brought him a fresh beer, mine was empty, too. When we finally received our food orders, we were very pleased with the quality of the fried fish (which is the only reason that I gave this review two stars instead of one), but the chips with it were greasy and soggy. When I asked if they gave a discount to military members, I was told, "Yes, 15%," then the waitress grabbed my itemized receipt to take it back and give us the discount. When she returned several minutes later, she only had the totaled receipt and told me that the couldn't give us a military discount, but they would give us a 10% "locals" discount. When I asked where the itemized receipt was, she told me that they'd thrown it away. I asked her to get it, and another several minutes later she returned with a wadded up receipt from the trash. Since we were all past ready to leave, I shoved it in my purse for later. After returning home I double-checked the receipt and found an additional charge in the amount of $14.95 for "service". I immediately called the phone number on the receipt and found a number with no "mailbox set-up", so I couldn't talk to anyone about the mysterious "service" charge or even leave a message. I have never been so swindled out of my money or time at a restaurant in my life. The biggest disappointment of our vacation. Don't waste your time or your money in this place.
