My parents liked taking my fiancé and me out to a local chain restaurant that prides itself on authentic Italian food. We went to this place about twice a month and usually had great service and heavenly food. One time, however, the waiter was so rude and prissy that it made me consider switching to […]

Our recent experience at this Jamaican themed restaurant in North Pinellas County Florida right off the Pinellas Trail was like a scene out of Abbott and Costello’s classic clip – “who’s on first” …but with waitstaff instead.

A few years ago, I took a friend to a well-known Hunan-style Chinese restaurant in San Francisco. The restaurant is very small, with only a dozen or so tables and a counter where you can also eat. Behind the counter is the “kitchen” where the cooks wok up the orders. Hunan food is very hot […]

This was back in about 1999 or 2000 when my family had been on the way home after a Hot Air Balloon event in Howell; we stopped at McD’s near Hartland, on Highland Rd next to US-23. It was late Sunday afternoon but it appeared the employees there were expecting a slow day and not […]

I would like to say that my experience at the D. House Grill and Bar was very poor. I ordered my appetizer and then the waitress came back from putting in the appetizer. She asked for our order. The appetizer came out in about fifteen minutes. Well about three minutes later so did the salad […]
