This is not the Lyndy's we once new! For starters it's turned into a neighborhood dive bar with rude, unattractive, slow inexperienced bartenders who can barley pop a beer or poor a watered down jack and coke. Get some experienced attractive men back there behind the bar to crank awesome drinks out and hire some hot (classy not trashy) cocktail waitresses to get a decent looking crowd of women and men for the night life. bartenders should be excellent mixers but most of all party facilitators and entertainers. not pop a beer and place it infront of you and walk off, then turn into a jerk when tip isn't 50% or higher at the end because you sucked. this place has to be a tax right off for the regular lawyers who bought it, because it's doomed for death A.S.A.P clean house and start over with a manager who KNOWS how to hire, not hire just nasty hoes off the street corner you KNOW you can have relations with after a few shots while counting tips. I'm never going back, and neither are all my friends and who have been patrons since Lyndy's. highlanders sucks!
I went there with a friend for a quick cocktail or two. My friend had a beer and a shot. I had a shot w/ a coke back. Both shots were short and extremely watered down.
I complained to the waitress, who took the complaint to the bar. She came back with the bartenders' excuse . . . that they were watered down from shaking the shots w/ ice.
What they didn't count on was that I have been a bartender for over 15 yrs, and know the difference between a full size shot that's been shaken, and a short shot shaken just to give the appearance of being full. What's more is neither of us asked for our shots to be shaken. Standard preparation does not call for it.
Did I mention they were also over-priced? My colored-water was 8.00, my friend's, 5.50.
No one from behind the bar offered any consolation or even a reasonable argument in their own defense. My friend and I left unsatisfied.
It's a far cry from Lyndi's. I'll never go back, and will continue to let others know about my bad experience.
