    It was very odd, asked for bread 3 times and portions seem smaller than we remember, maybe just an off night

    We had an early Fathers Day lunch. It took our waitress almost 30 minutes to get our drinks, we were sitting across from the bar. She did not offer bread for the table, had to ask. Ordered appetizers which took 45 min to arrive. We were with our kids so the order for lunch was simple, Mac & cheese, chicken tenders, and the we had Cubans. It took almost 1hr and half to arrive. The the plates were hot (sat under the warmer). The Mac and cheese was hard at the bottom and the bowl was untouchable. Our sandwiches were slightly cold and fries hot. Server only checked on table 3x, had to pile our dirty appetizer plates at the end to of table to make room for our food which was not cleared. Almost a $200 bill and an off putting celebration. It was a mess. Try a different place on St Armand’s

    We stopped in for lunch and ordered a Cuban sandwich and the Mahi Mahi tacos. The tacos were great! The Cuban sandwich was good, but the fries were old and cold, and very few were on the plate. Our server Darryl took our order and it took longer than it should have, considering the restaurant was not busy at all. We at first thought our order was never placed but then noticed everyone around us was also waiting on their food. Our order was finally delivered (not by Darryl our server, which is not unusual), but he never came to check on how everything tasted/if we needed anything. We needed more salsa for the chips and ketchup for the fries, but never got it. Darryl seemed nice but acted like he was new. He never checked on the table behind us either and they complained to the manager. We were going to complain as well after that, but it was difficult to get anyone’s attention throughout our lunch. Darryl needs more training.

    Chips were stale. One meal came out wrong and had to be remade. Wine was bitter and had been open for days, cocktails had to be remade. Waitress was rude. All around a rough experience, our first bad experience at this location but extremely so.

    Food is OK prices of course are too high. Service was very good great waiter. Noise was too high music live music too loud and too much bass. Our experience was on the first floor level of the restaurant.
