We were looking forward to dinner at the Grand Central Oyster Bar...and were less than overwhelmed with the food and, especially, the service. It took 15 minutes after we were seated for the waiter to come to our table. His demeanor was curt and disinterested. We waited another 10 minutes for our beverages to arrive. After we ordered, we waited another 45 minutes for our food to come out. My wife's fried clams had many pieces of shell in them, and my shrimp came with tartar sauce only. No cocktail sauce. The only time our waiter checked back with us was when we had finished our meal. Dirty dishes were thrown into tubs in front of us only to sit until someone came to collect them. Management seemed more concerned with turning tables than servicing customers, and it felt much more like a food factory than a restaurant. Not a pleasant experience at all.
