9:20 on a Saturday evening. The prices are fair,the food is pretty good, service could be better. Our server knowingly did not bring out our bread basket we had to flag her down to get one and it wasn't the same variety of bread of the people surrounding us. Food came out with our bread basket. Crab cakes came out with no secondary service, no drawn butter, lemon, or cocktail sauce. After several minutes of waiting to be checked on, I went to the counter to ask for cocktail for my friend. Three servers passed me without any concern while the manager, three booths away observed with little care. Finally, I walked over to the group to ask for cocktail sauce, none of these ladies were my server. Three quarters of the way done, then comes our server. Well, the check was prompt and boxes brought over. Then we leave and the sign outside says 'complimentary wine with 9.99 meal' - Never Offered! That was the final straw. If only the service was good we would probably return, but not now. No thank you!
