My girlfriend decided to take me on a weekend get away to Asheville, NC coming from TN for Valentines Day. She had the weekend perfectly planned out, even a nice Valentines dinner at an interesting looking restaurant called Old Weaverville Mill Restaurant. As we pulled in at 6:45, we noticed that the restaurant parking lot was not full. This should have been a sign especially considering it was Valentine's night. The restaurant while interesting, was freezing cold. The staff that we could see included one waitress, one hostess, and one girl to clean. I ordered a French onion soup, salad, sweet potatoes, and prime rib. My girlfriend had the plum chicken with a salad, and sweet potatoes. The soup arrived cold with a slice of Kraft Swiss cheese barely melted over it. The salads, while a spring mix, was very bland and was almost on the old side. Next came the waiting for the main course. One hour and fifteen minutes later we were served our meals. As the food was placed in front of us, the waitress informed us that there were no more sweet potatoes and they just gave us regular potatoes that had been quartered. I got three pieces and my girlfriend got four??? The potatoes were completely raw.....yes raw. My prime rib was supposed to be medium. The prime rib was simply cut while raw and seared on each side for several seconds at the most. It was basically raw. The rolls were no bigger then a donut hole and several were burnt. We were given four of these so called rolls. Finally, I got the waitress and told her the problem. I informed her I did not want the food and we just wanted the bill. She returned with the bill and told me she took my meal off. I asked, "What about my girlfriends potatoes that were raw". I was told that it didn't matter, the chicken was most of the price of the meal. So, after arguing, she snatched up the check, then returned to have taken off $1.50 off of the $13.50. We swiftly left the so called eating establishment without so much as an apology. It was very obvious that they felt we were wrong for complaining.....I was not. The attitude that we got from them was we will serve you what we want and how dare you question us. It was obvious that the locals agree with me by there absence at this restaurant. I someone from this restaurant reads this review......I have been in the food industry for many years. You need to get your act together or get out the business. Take a hint from all of your empty tables. Eaters be aware!!
