from a LOCAL.
Viva Diane Armitage! Do what SHE tells you to do.
This restaurant has good food and service but the management stinks. The manager was rude and short with me when asking if he could tell my waiter that we had a couple of birthdays at our table and when a server accidentally spilled water on phone they said he would be personally liable for it. I WILL NEVER SUPPORT A COMPANY THAT DOES NOT SUPPORT THEIR STAFF. HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE & HORRIBLE BUSINESS PRACTICES! When I called to talk to the owner and relay my dissatisfaction he hung up on me. I WILL BE SURE TO TELL EVERYONE I KNOW TO NEVER EAT HERE! I will also be looking into legal action for my phone.
