“The dining experience we should all receive when spending hard earned money!”
Reviewed March 25, 2011

Let me start by saying I am the manager of a local company in Presque Isle and realize the importance of quality products, professionalism, a clean atmosphere and most of all, service. Recently, my mother in-law celebrated a birthday and my wife wanted the family to get together at a local restaurant to mark the occasion. She started by calling local restaurants for reservations, and to her surprise, found the atmosphere a bit lacking in the area. Some did not take reservations and one wanted to charge a $25.00 fee to reserve. My wife called the Sidewalk Cafe and they put her through to Robin, who is the manager for the NorthEastland Hotel, Coppers Lounge and the Sidewalk Cafe. Robin gladly reserved a spot for 10 people. When we arrived, we found a spotless area to dine, a super freindly waitress, and a noise level so that a conversation could be had by all. It continued to fill up with a more than the average crowd for a Sunday at 4:30. pm. Guess what? There was only one waitress, but she never missed a beat and was always smiling, even if she was feeling a bit overwelmed. She took care of everyones needs at every table and the food was excellent! There was not a long wait for the food, she continued checking on us to be sure the food was fine and to see if there was anyhting else we needed. This same professionalism was used at all the tables. To be able to walk into such a clean place made me feel good about the food I was about to eat. One thing that particularly stood out was the appearnce of our waitress. Very neat clothes that actually fit her and the absence of multiple peircings was also very calming.
If only all restaurants carried the same pride, there would be a larger variety to choose from when spending our hard earned money.
Thanks for the great expeience and for one waitress who really pulled it off!
Sincerely,
Tim McLean
