The boys and I met Dennis at Copper River today for lunch. Deniska and I had really looked forward to eating there since we rarely go there. The hostess seated us and we waited, and waited, and waited. People came in after us and was immediately served. We still sat and waited and waited. Did I mention that we waited? Oh, I see that I did. FINALLY, a waitress arrived without any explanation. I said, “We were beginning to wonder if we had a waitress today.” She said, “Yes, there was a mix-up on who was serving this table.” No apology was offered, nothing. She took our drink order and disappeared before we even had a chance to order. Then, we waited, and waited, and waited. Are you beginning to see a pattern here? Dennis arrived 10 minutes later and we were STILL waiting on our drinks. Dennis was on a lunch break and certainly did not have hours to wait for lunch. So, we decided to leave. I don’t know if the waitress ever came back or not. I suspect there was something going on that we were not privy to – perhaps a power struggle between the wait staff? Who knows! I don’t know if we will ever eat there again.
UPDATE: the store manager emailed me and said that he had talked to the server in question and rectified the problem. He is sending us a gift card to use at the restaurant. I thought that was very nice of him.
