I don't care for the menu. It's not for me. But that doesn't really bother me. The beers can be very pricey. But what the hell else am I gonna spend my money on? Clothes? Furniture? A manicure? Ha! Moot. The place can be very crowded. So what. These aren't the issue.
So what is it that turns me off about the joint? Its the staff and the service. Time after time, I and my friends seem to experience something negative about the staff or the service. If it isn't an arrogant bartender, then its an inattentive server. If you miss the bad attitude coming, you'll get the wrong order going. And if you're lucky enough to have an issue-free evening, you can always get your fill of negativity by having your neighbor at the bar tell you about his/her crappy experience.
And yet I keep going back when I should know better. Stupid.
