My family and I decided to try Spring Garden since it was on our way home from Grafton. The first thing you'll notice is that the restaurant is just...blah. No ambiance what-so-ever. But whatever, I don't care about the ambiance as much as I care about what I'm there to do...eat good food. Well...we never made it that far. The waitress came and took our order, and after placing our order I went to the restroom to wash my hands. It's a small restaurant, so the restroom is setup for one person at a time. There was someone already in the restroom, and unfortunately the restaurant was quiet, and waiting in the hall you could here the person "doing their business" inside. SInce it's a hallway, there's no other place to wait. A minute or two later, the cook walked out of the bathroom...normally...whatever, but like I said, the restaurant was quiet, and
1) He did not flush the toilet.
2) He did NOT wash his hands...no running water, and the sink was bone dry.
I immediately went back to let my family know we would NOT be eating here. I told the waitress about what had happened, and she simply laughed and said "Oh, he'll probably just wash his hands in back." REALLY?! I cancelled our order, and the waitress told me it was too late, and I would have to pay. I didn't argue, I didn't pay...we just walked out.
The following day I filed a complaint with the Health Department. I'm sure I'm not the first, nor the last. Stay away...well away.
