Ate at College Inn the other night

Green Horse | Oct 9, 2003 10:57 AM

It was awful. Service was absolutely the worst I've ever encountered in any restaurant at any time or place and the quality of the food was something worse than middling.

It's worth eating there only if you get a deep discount.

I don't know what Emile was thinking about selling
out to this guy. A lot of the old staff faces are
gone and confusion reigns, from the pretty hostess
who ignored us for a good ten minutes while standing
5 feet away chatting with a busboy until taken by
the arm and pulled to the table; through the clueless waiter who brought us lemons in his bare hands and pointed at plates to see if we were done with them rather than ask, to the kitchen, which forgot to use any seasoning in our food.

I used to eat at College Inn a lot from about 1970
to 1990 and there have been some crazy service staff -
a waitress who claimed she had to pay individually
for the crackers she put on the table (that's why
she didn't put more than 2 packs in the basket) but there's never been anything like this anywhere.
