Poor Experience at Regata Pub

I'm not sure I am a full foodie, but I have some minimal requirements from an establishment that I feel should be satisfied. Let me say also that I don't believe I'm a snob. I just want decent service with sold food experience.

I could probably go on for pages about my experience three weeks ago, but I'll try and hit the highlights:

- One server was wearing a bath robe and slippers.

- The other server was glacially slow and rude, I mean really slow. We actually had to signal her several times for things that were forgotten ( water, silverware, etc.)

- Fish entree was left uneaten as was the rice, Nachos seemed to be prepped way a head of time as all the flavors had leached together and was overpowered by the onion. Just a little of the nachos where consumed.

- My hamburger ordered medium was charred on the outside and pink on the inside (OK I guess).

- Ketchup came in a hospital pill cup, blech!

- Server never came back to check if our food was OK.

- Took forever to get the bill, which wasn't even ours.

- We did get to hear all about the server body part that had swollen up huge.

I can honestly say it was the worse experience I've had food and service was very poor. I have attempted to contact the hotel general manager for two weeks, always voice mail, or not there and has never returned my calls.

I suggest you stay far far away from the place, worst place to eat in Salem.
