So that's what you got...order at the counter, no continuity as to how the food comes out and each plated as a single entre for one person.
I would agree, if the restaurant wasnt broken up into two obvious sections. There was clearly the take out section with a few tables, then another room, carpeted, nicer tables which is where we ate. I agree in the sense that, it was run like a take out place with a place to eat , but it appeared, at least to me, as sit down waiter/waitress served place. Obviously i was either wrong, or she was having a really bad day. Doesnt matter, the food was good, I had plenty of left overs to take back and eat at the hotel, and I didnt let it ruin my vacation at all. I was just curious about everyone elses opinion. As for scranton,PA. We had a nice time, other than that, treated well, and I have nothing bad to say about the city. I am treating it as an isolated incedent. No big deal at all. As far as doing my web homework, I created a list of chinese/ italian places within a very reasonable distance of the museums/ things we visited, since im not familiar with the city and didnt want to base my mini vacation on eating and driving around looking for a place to eat. If I were expecting to have a really fantastic dining experience , i definately would have spent more time searching for a more ideal place. This was just a quick, eat and lets go to the next place type of thing, but even that, I expect to be treated with a smile and good attitude, weather at a take out, sit down, gas station.....where ever
