Last night we went back to the Wooden Nickel for the second time in about 6 months. The Elk tenderloin was one of the best steaks I have ever had. Tender and perfectly prepared. My wife had a shrimp dish that she thoroughly enjoyed.
Great food can be enhanced or diminished by the service. Both times we've dined at the Wooden Nickel we've had the pleasure to be served by Sarah. She is professional, friendly and fully knowledgeable about her menu and the restaurant's wines. I make such a point of this because if you scroll down these reviews, you'll see on March 20 a very negative review posted by Robert C. We were at the table next to him and let me tell you that his version of the evening is a lie. It was he who was rude, loud and abusive to not only Sarah, but other members of the staff. This was on a Friday night, durning Spring Break. As busy as they were, the staff was polite and attentive to all their customers.
Robert C's actions were so out of line, that my college aged son turned to him and admonished him from talking to the staff that way. He response was to scream to my son to "shut the @#ck up".
As I told the restaurant manager that evening and felt it even more so last night, Sarah is the type of waitress that any establishment would be proud to have working for them.
Robert C, you're a jerk and a bully. I hope no reader gives your comments any credence.
