Restaurant Web Sites - the horror

512window | Feb 7, 2009 11:10 AM

Why must restaurants succumb to overblown websites? When I check out a restaurant website, I want very specific information: what's their menu, how much does it cost, where are they, when are they open, how to reach them for a reservation.

I don't want: music, movies, wading through pages of reviews, flash anything. But all too often, that's what I get. I estimate at least 50% of the restaurant websites I go to are like this.

Is this just me? Is it just a San Francisco Bay Area thing? Are there people out there who really like watching a video of how exciting a restaurant is? It turns me off and makes me not want to eat at that restaurant.
