Not About Food 40

What would you have done?

Mrs. Potato and I had to spend the past week in Des Moines so to pass the time, we spent yesterday at the Amana Colonies. We truly enjoyed most of our visit but lunch was a bitter disappointment. The restaurant we chose was one of the original buildings which started life as a communal kitchen. We eagerly looked forward to our meal considering that the building has been used for food service for over 150 years, which only increased our incredulity when the beef gravy was canned, the Schnitzel was frozen, and the Spaetzle was precooked and greasy. Our only relief was that we ordered the $13 lunch portions rather than the $16 dinner portions.
We finished our meal and payed the bill without a word to the staff, but what would you have done? Would you have expressed your disappointment to the staff?
