Without going into a longgg story of our experience once. The waitress was unbelievable. The meal was great, but spoiled by the waitress.

As a tip we left 2 cents. maybe when she complains to the others it would sink in and the next person might have a better meal. Buy the way our bill was almost 50.00.

One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching

i think that good service depends from the restaurants philosophy.
You can find everywhere good or bad service.

There is really no excuse for poor service anywhere. The fact that the restaurant was in a small town makes no difference.

I agree with tipping less when the service is bad, but I also suggest (and I do this) that you should tell the manager or owner personally why you are doing this. That doesn't mean the wait person is going to lose their job, but it should mean they get a talking-to.

Wine is the food that completes the meal.
