Rumor has it they are taking the "Rotten" out of the restaurant name, but after our visit there the other night, they need to keep the adjective because it fits perfectly. and let me say.. ROTTEN doesn’t quite cover it… it was FILTHY (the 2 previous proprieters NEVER kept the place clean... and each time we figured the new leasee would clean and do some sort of rennovations - not true of ANY of them).
THE SERVICE WAS ALSO FILTHY AND JUST PLAIN BAD…
2 SMALL EXAMPLES:
I could see each of the waitresses grabbing silverware for settings as people were getting their food... they were grabbing the silverware by the EATING END! NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ok… if you are going to do it that way.. AT LEAST don't let me see it... BUT your hands have been all over everything in the place and you are going to touch the part of the fork with which I eat! NOOO!
Even their clothes looked gross.
We also noticed that the waitresses all appeared to be very busy, always moving about, but never really seeming to be doing anything.. one walked around for 5 mins with 2 plates of food.. just walking around and around with it... and I kept hoping it wasn't our food because it went by every table in the place and had to be ice cold by the time it arrived at the right table, which, thankfully, was not ours.
The food was terrible...My husband said his fish had no flavor... and it was SWIMMING (almost literally because it didn't look fully cooked) - in GREASE... GOOD THING HE DOESN'T HAVE A GALL BLADDER ANYMORE! I ordered pasta with "Ralphredo" sauce... and veggies... i guess they considered a sprinkle of parsley would be considered vegetables...
Anyway... in addition to bad service, bad food, and disgusting conditions, they also charge island prices for a VERY non-island atmosphere. We love our tiki bars on the island and off... and don't mind paying the prices when they are warranted.. but in this case... they should have been paying us...
So when they call it Rotten Ralph's.. believe me.. IT IS!
