Waitress brought check to table, laid it on the table, stepped back, and stood by, like she was hovering over the table afraid that we might skip without paying. Explained that the person to pay for check had gone to the restroom, and would be right back. My wife finally went ahead and paid the check. The waitress took the money, and brought change. The person who was paying came back from restroom wanting to know why we paid; Not acceptable behavior of waiting staff.
The Doumar's history is everywhere on display at the restaurant and is quite entertaining (esp. if old Mr. Doumar is there!) and the cones are still made by hand - the BBQ is just finely minced, not real hot, gotta get it w/the slaw and hot sauce! It tastes great and brings back memories of high school days at Maury, just behind the restaurant!
Doumar's is part of what makes Norfolk GREAT! I love going here and the service is exceptional! Try the "Ringo" - it's a fun dessert. A secret that only the locals know is that Doumar's sells beer on request.
