I have always heard from the locals that the owner is greedy & has run all the smaller mom/pop shops out of the kayak/canoe business. I don't like monopolies especially when you have other people ran out by politics & more money, but, I've tried to remain open-minded about their restaurant. They've always had good food! Just returned from a long weekend their & they were having a singer during dinner hour till 10ish Saturday night. We went & spent $40 on food & drinks & then our waiter kept asking us, in about at 15 minute period, if we would like our check? I kept telling him, no, & the last time he asked, he said his manager wanted us to pay our tab & move so they could get more diners in. I was appalled! There were no extra tables on the deck below & they weren't giving us any options It was pay your bill & fend for yourself or leave!!! We have traveled all over the U.S. & been to 7 different countries & I have never been asked to leave so an establishment could sell more food! (Especially while we were still ordering drinks!) I asked to speak to the manager. He very pointedly told me, again, with no apology or kindness, or even a smile, that we needed to pay our bill & move. I asked him where he planned for us to sit & he very grumpily told me he would get us a table put together. I even heard the hostess asking the gentlemen behind us if they would pay their bill and move & those guys told her "No". I looked around & they said they had "not even bought dinner". They were just there for drinks, but, they were still paying customers & they were not leaving. PLUS, they knew the owner!! So.....they were not moving & that was ok. I guess the owner is sooooo greedy & they are basically the only nice restaurant in town, plus the majority of his business is tourist, so he's not worried about repeat customers!! We have bought our own kayaks now, so we don't give them that business & now, you couldn't pay me to ever go to their restaurant again, or stay in their hotel or go to their indoor music river center. When some one is that greedy, hateful & downright rude to customers, I will never spend another dime at their establishments. One of these days his business ethics will come back to haunt him!! P.S. We ordered the "Sister Chicken" with 2 chicken breasts & sides.....the sides were good size, but, the chicken breasts were about 2 oz. each, with noooooo exaggeration!
