We dined here on a slow Saturday night. Given that the hotel was not even close to capacity, a slow night in the restaurant was likely expected. Our server could not have been less attentive. After being sat by the hostess out on the porch as we requested we waited for a while before our server came over to take our order. What? No drink to start, no water, no reading of the nightly specials? Okay, no problem. I ordered the hotel special "Roast Prime Rib of Beef Au jus *
A Bethel Inn classic! Our all natural Black Angus beef is slow roasted and served traditionally
seasoned on or off the bone, or an end cut when available, with Au jus and baked potato" There was no offer of an end cut, but that's okay, I would not have opted for it. I did expect to see some of the "au jus," though none was to be found anywhere on the plate. That is not the fault of the server, but the expediter if they have one, the chef if they do not. The beef was cooked perfectly and tasted great even without the sauce. I would have like both the meat and the potato to have reached the table hot, or at least warm, but that was not the case. Had the server came back to check on us any time during the meal, I could have asked her about the au jus, the reason the meal was cold, why we not offered a second beverage(mine was soda water.) The loud, boring table of five next to us and the fact that a deuce was put next to us on the other side with about 10 open tables on the porch was unpleasant but bearable. I love the Inn, but i suggest eating elsewhere when in town.
