Give my dad his beer! Your just standing there!

My dad and I went out to dinner last night at a local place. My dad ordered a beer. Five minutes later the waitress came with bread. Still no beer. We waited five more minutes and the waitress still didn't come with his beer. We could both see that the waitresses were just standing around or talking. Finally the beer came and we were polite and didn't mention that the other table which had come in five minutes later already had their drinks. The food was really good but I just didn't feel welcome there. Has this happened to anyone else?
