Terrible experience here on our trip to Paradise Island/Nassau in September ( I know, finally getting around to writing it!). The hubby and I had been standing outside the restaurant using the wifi to shoot off a quick email to our families, letting them know all was well. We actually felt kind of bad just using their wifi, so we decided to go inside and get a drink while we finished our email. We sat down, and my husband ordered a beer and I a coke. $7 beer and $3 coke. A little overpriced, but whatever, a lot of the food and drinks were overpriced in Nassau (in my opinion), which is why we opted for an all-inclusive hotel (definitely worth it if staying in Nassau or paradise Island! Food is EXPENSIVE!). So we order our drinks, and when the (very rude) waitress comes to take our food order, we nicely explained we had just eaten, but wanted to have a drink and relax (the place was empty, by the way, with one other couple eating there, so its not like we were taking up space...) She rudely explained that in order to use the wifi we had to order food. At that point we were like, no way, we aren't even hungry, this place must be empty for a reason, and this server is a complete jerk. We said sorry, but we were almost done sending off a quick email and then we'd pay and leave. Without a word, she glared at us, raced over to a back room area and SHUT OFF THE WIFI to the whole restaurant! Really?? The other couple who was there (and eating) complained about the wifi being gone, and I couldn't hear her response but she POINTED at us (who have both worked in the industry and are VERY nice and understanding to all who work in restaurants). We asked for our check, which should have been $10 for the beer and coke. She wouldnt bring us a paper check but siad the total was $15. I said um, excuse me, the coke $3 and the beer $7? How is that $15? She said oh, gratuity. I was like there is NO WAY I am paying you a 50% tip when I just had my worst restaurant experience EVER. She continued to argue, and threatened to call the cops if we left without paying, so we ended up leaving her $12 (still too much in my opinion) and left. As soon as we walked out the WIFI was turned back on, so we continued to use it standing outside,a s we obviously should have done from the begging, had our consciences not gotten in the way. I sincerely hope this joke of a server has been fired by now!
