We took some visiting family members to JB's. Two of us had been there before and really enjoyed both the food and the setting.
On this particular evening, the place was packed at 6 p.m. We preferred to sit outside and waited for a table. The one we were finally seated at was at the edge of the building with a strong wind gusting around us. Then the no-see-ums started biting. It got so uncomfortable that we asked to be moved and accepted the offer of a table inside. Each of us picked up our drinks and menu and relocated.
Ordering took a bit more time than normal because they were out of several things listed on the menu. When our server delivered our food, she was upset because she hadn't put the butcher paper on the table. We offered to pick up our plates and drinks so she could do it then, but she just told us to be very careful. I asked her for the tarter and cocktail sauces that we needed, and she very rudely said "you left them on the table outside when you moved!" Since they were on that table when we were seated, we assumed each table had some -- never thinking it was up to us to take the containers with us. She walked away and never came back with the sauce. I turned around and watched the kitchen, looking for her to ask again. Finally a very young waitress came to ask if I wanted something; I told her we needed the sauces and explained what the older lady had said. She was astonished at the unprofessionalism of her co-worker and immediately brought what we needed. I was surprised to learn that the rude server has been there 8 years. I hope she was just having a bad night.
The food was good. One person ordered a casserole, two had fish, and one, shrimp. When asked how the casserole was, he commented "it's okay but I wouldn't order it again." The fish and shrimp were excellent, however.
The setting here is beautiful, but this experience will probably keep us from going back any time soon.
