Location: 4/5 stars. Located on the main street, the restaurant was very accessible. Unfortunately, parking is not very good. They do not have their own parking lot. Promptness: 5/5 stars. My GF and I went there on a Sunday morning during the July 4th holiday. Within 10 minutes, we were seated! Within 15 minutes, we ordered and received our food. How ridiculous was this?! Service: 5/5 stars. Our waitress was so attentive despite having to serve tons of people. She came to our table at least 6 or 7 times during our meal. Seriously! Food: 5/5 stars. My Danish pancake was delicious. My GF's breakfast was OK. The coffee was amazing!!
Why the 2 stars? Check out my tip. I have never ever experienced such a hard time getting someone to serve my mother and I. I understood that yes they were busy but when I tried to flag someone down, the staff kept telling me I can't take orders. Well...what the hell are you here for then?! Literally only two people could take orders in the ENTIRE restaurant. The rest of the staff were decoration. Am I being harsh? Yes I am. I'm a nice Yelper. Generally, I have a good experience. I rarely write reviews like this because overall, I usually have an excellent time. However, on this rare occasion, I was not happy and will say so. I also didn't like the fact that I got the "special" menu as I was part of a tour which gave me a choice of 10 dishes to order from. I looked at the menu on display outside of the restaurant, I know they serve other types of dishes then the menu I was given. I won't come back ever. Unless it's a quiet day with no one else because I'll get service and staff that will take my order. And just to drive this point across, the table behind me was equally frustrated. They kept trying to flagging someone down to no avail. Tip- if you think that by trying to order at the bar will help, it won't. They'll just tell you to find a table so they know where your food will go. How will I get my food if you don't take my order in the first place? Such a concept!
Wine tasting number 3! Last stop on a long day! Service was very friendly. They have a dart board to play with. Pretty big table area. Dog friendly! You can get a groupon for either wine or beer tasting, $25 for 4 people. The beer selection was just typical beer you find in the grocery store so we all went with wine. The wine was good and you get 6 tastings. Our server also gave us an extra rose pour before we left.
