Rocket to Venus
Across the street from my home on Morling avenue, Ed Wise let us set up shop in his empty two-car garage. We paid for machinery and materials as we could afford to, out of our hard earned salaries, and we put close to $5,000 into the project before we were through. We knew where we wanted to go. Venus. Mars was too far, and we figured the moon was a burned out planet and not worth seeing.
I went for brunch with a large group. The food was pretty good, but nothing was hot, which is restaurant 101. I had the steak with herb butter. It came with potatoes that were bland, but the butter on the steak helped with that. The steak was pretty good. The service could have been better, even though the restaurant was packed wall to wall. I would swear the entire waitstaff was new, and that is where most of the issues came from.
this place has the worst service in the solar system. on my visit we waited forty minutes for a table even though the place was half empty while most of the staff hung out at the bar talking to people. after we got a seat our waitress waited another half an hour to show up only to be rather rude. my companions and i all agreed that the food was awful. and i mean the still frozen french fries, slimy produce, stale bread, and undercooked meat kind of terrible you usually get from sketchy looking diners next to truck-stops. my sandwich came with a bonus long blonde hair that the waitress and manager both insisted was one of mine even though i have a brown crewcut and super short dark beard. after i persisted they insisted it was on of my wifes-she is blonde but has super short hair too, not to mention she was sitting on the other side of the booth several feet away from my plate. i couldn't even manage to get anybody to tell me where the restroom was. i went over towards the left side of the bar and some guy jumped in front of me and told me i was on the wrong side. all this after my waitress, water pouring guy, guy who seemed to stand around doing nothing but scowling at people waiting for tables and shuffling menus, and bartender ignored me when i asked for directions. he even mumbled an insult as i headed towards the actual mens restroom loud enough for me to hear. the manager cared even less about this then the hair in my food. everything about my parties experience there was beyond awful and this place should be avoided at all costs unless your pals with one of the hipsters working there. maybe in that case you might get some decent service while you choke down disgusting food and overpriced beer.
We have now gone here three times and the last two have been poor experiences. The second to last time the bartender was unattentive and only came over to see us incessantly when she was trying to get us to leave as closing time approached. Mind you they were not closed, but she was trying to force us out and was threatening to take our almost full drinks. She was not doing the same thing to all of her friends around the bar. Before she started harassing us, it was near impossible to get the bartenders attention.
The last time we were there I waited over 20 minutes standing at the bar, which was not crowded), waiting to get a beer. I tried to get the attention of bartenders as they talked to friends and picked songs on the juke box. I even noticed a waiter see that I was waiting and not make any attempt to help. When I go out to a bar, I don't need a staff with an attitude problem, that has trouble doing their job. This restaurant has incredibly poor service and we will never return.
