The Courier has been around for years, and it's showing. It used to be a family favorite, but in 20 years it seems to have gone steadily downhill. The hostess was clearly having a bad day, and wiped down my table with a soggy rag and literally tossed the menu down. Great, wet table. The two servers were actually great, including Sarah who was new and in training. Looking around, the carpet was filthy, and the decor is tired, tired, tired. I was taken aback that the place clearly needed cleaning and the hostess simply leaned on the counter, which was covered in papers and newspapers, and ignored it all.
I had an unremarkable cheeseburger and cold fries. I didn't have the heart to complain as it wasn't the servers fault. I paid the still surly hostess and left. The servers there could do much better. Clearly the owners have no desire to update the menu, decor, or service standards. Save your money and head to Murphy's Pub over on campus instead. I am not kidding when I say the menu has not changed at the Courier in more than 20 years, and the cleanliness and food quality is poor.
