To be fair, I have gone to Whisky River a handful of times and have always had a decent time. Recently though, I went to Whisky River and due to the large crowd, I was having a hard time getting served by one of the bartenders. I stood there patiently along with my boyfriend and another friend. The bartender just skipped over all of us. When two girls walked up beside me, they had not been standing there for more than a minute and he asked for their order. I got his attention and said that I had been waiting and wanted to be helped. He mouthed off at me that "he only helps people he knows because they tip better." I mouthed off something about "how do you know that I don't tip well?" I walked away and went to another section of the bar but my boyfriend stayed and I guess said something in my defense and the bartender reared back some lovely comment about me being a witch with a B.
I am a young, intelligent, business professional in Charlotte and feel that I behaved accordingly and by no means did I behave in a way that warranted being called a witch with a B. I did report it to the Manager and he offered to buy me and my 8 friends’ drinks. I accepted and he restored a tad bit of my faith in the customer service at Whisky River. My only hope is that the bartender got reprimanded for his behavior.
Not sure if I ever will go back to Whisky River but if you are thinking about going, I would warn to set your expectations low, so then when a bartender treats you the way he treated me, you wouldn't be surprised.
