And not the type used for a glass of tea. On Thursday, January 30, 2014, I waited at Manny’s Chophouse in Haines City for 23 minutes only to be told I had to wait an additional 45 minutes for a table. The party of four in front of me was seated immediately, but I was told to eat dinner at the bar. However, the elderly couple behind me was offered a table, and the lady even offered to let me take their table, because she had heard the exchange. I left, vowing never to return. Upon arriving at home, I called the Haines City location asking to speak with the manager. The greeter said she couldn’t hear me and hung up. I phoned four more times asking to speak with the manager. I got the same response: “I can’t hear you.” On the fifth call, I said in a quiet voice, “Call ahead seating for eight.” Aida’s response was, “At what time will you arrive.” I asked if she could hear me. She said she could, and I asked for the manager in charge. Aida hung up. I called Mike, the manager in charge of Manny’s in Winter Haven. He called the Haines City manager, Jennifer, asking that she contact me. Jennifer’s employees denied that I had called.
This review is rated one-half star, rounded up to a full point only because there is no zero rating. Avoid being abused at Manny’s. There are restaurants with civilized staff that don’t discriminate against single guests.
