Elm Street Oyster House

We had dinner the other night at the Elm Street Oyster House. As it happens, we haven't been there in quite some time, but our friends really wanted to go. We had to wait a bit for a table, but it wasn't too bad considering it was a Sat. nite and they don't take reservations. We started out with an assortment of oysters both east coast and west coast. They were fine, but I didnt find the west coast oysters as creamy as I thought they should be. Our waitress couldn't seem to answer any questions about the oysters when we asked before we ordered. And here is where I kind of have an issue- let me preface by saying she was lovely and professional. And, our food was good and the evening was enjoyable. Nothing was wrong, necessarily, but I found it so strange that she couldnt answer a single question about anything when we asked. It wasn't like, " you know, I am a bit new here, so let me ask the chef, or get someone who could better answer that for you." It seemed everything we asked about was met with , " um, I don't know".
Does anyone else find that odd, or annoying?
