A friend and I went here at 2:30 a.m. on 11/01. It wasn't crowded, but we decided to sit at the bar. We sat quietly, looking over our menus, for about 10 minutes. No staff had approached us at any point since we arrived, and we decided to try the place across the street instead. As we were walking out the door one of the waiters asked us if we were leaving. My friend, who is in the service industry, politely told him that we had been waiting a while and nobody had helped us. He apologized, we said no big deal, and we left. As it turns out, our ""plan B"" restaurant was closed, so we decided to give the St. Charles another chance. As soon as we walked in, an older man (short in height, grey hair, wearing a scally cap) approached us and told us we had to leave. We were a bit taken aback by this, and the only explanation he provided was that we had to leave because he doesn't want ""that kind of people"" in the restaurant. That's a direct quote, and i have no idea what he meant by it. We stood outside, dumbfounded, wondering what the hell just happened. After talking to some friends, I believe this person was probably the owner. This was, by far, the rudest, most disrespectful treatment I have ever received in any business establishment, dining or otherwise. If a bartender or server had approached us as quickly as the rude owner did, we would have never left in the first place.
