Stay away from "The Buttery" ( Niagara on the Lake)

Last Sunday we went for lunch at "The Buttery" in Niagara on the Lake. I should have known better than to pick a restaurant because it looked "cute" from the outside....

We were one of the first to arrive for lunch, and placed our order. We watched as people around us who had arrived way after us were getting served first. We felt obligated to stay, as we had already received our drinks. After about an hour, we approached our waiter and asked how much longer it would be until we were served, as we had noticed that patrons around as had already recieved their lunches. He was annoyed, and short with us, instead of apologetic.

When the food finally arrived it was cold and tasteless. I barely touched mine. When he returned to clear our plates, I told him that some of our dinners were cold. His response was "Oh, yeah?"

When he returned with the bill, he slapped it on our table saying nothing and walked away. We hope he enjoyed his one cent tip.

After the dinner, two of us had "gastro issues" from our lunch to top it all off.
