Where have you been lately that you've had an enjoyable experience?

Well, The Chef's table had a big ad in this weeks' NGN. It advertised 4-6 course meals. My problem is, i cannot eat that much food, so I don't like to pay for food I can't eat.

Joan sent us home with some bread from Monets too. I have been eating it for lunch everyday, I dip it in oil and butter. We bought some of her strawberry dipping sauce for pretzels and it is so good. Back to Monets tonight. I have missed them!

We went to Monets last night, first night they were open to the public since Tuesday night. When Joan saw me, she came and gave me a hug. It is nice to be missed. I starting leaving the girls boxes of chocolates with their tip. I will do that every night next week, plus give them a bonus tip!

Coosa, I bet those waitresses fight over who gets your table! LOL!

BIg Boy's gal friend used to work there and she commented that you and Gary always tipped nicely!

She usually worked the front but would waitress some. She worked there almost two years.

Ex waitresses always tip well and that is what I use to do. I always leave at least 20%, but usually at Monets, it is closer to 40% of my bill. Next week, I plan to leave a tip each night larger than my total bill. Those girls deserve it; they take such good care of us.

I tip based mainly on the quality of service. Great service, great tip. Poor service, poor tip.

Well I tip because no one should have to work for $2 an hour. so, even if the service is not that good, I will leave a good tip, for great service, I leave a great tip. After a while the girls know who tips well and the service gets much better . I use to have a table of 6 that came in several times a week. They never left a dime for any waitress. So, we pretty much ignored them.
The worse tippers are the ones that come in after church and that is the truth. We all hated to work Sunday lunch because we made so little money on sunday. The most I ever made for a day's pay on Sunday was $12. I had one group from the same church that wanted to sit together, so it was a table of 18. They ran my legs off getting drinks and bread and left 87 cents! I remember those days and tip my girls correctly! It is supposed to be 15-20%

I just find it interesting that you give good tips regardless of how bad or good the service is. Rewarding mediocracy or for being lackadaisical is not a new concept.

Because I tip so well, I always get good service. Now, that is at my local restaurants where they know me. If I go to someplace out of town, I just tip 20%. If service is really bad (and it usually is not) I might tip less. These girls are making $2 an hour and have to do a lot of cleaning work that no one even knows about.

Looks like Longhorn Steakhouse in Ellijay is going to be open soon. The signs are lit & the parking lot is paved & painted. It was too dark to get a glimpse inside though.

The last one I went to was in Gatlinburg. If I remember, the steaks were pretty spicy!

We just don't eat out like we used to. So often the independently owned restaurants are not consistent with their food...sometimes good and sometimes bad. Many of the chain restaurants seem awfully noisy and not relaxing. However, right at this very moment, I am craving Red Lobster's jambalaya and cheese/garlic biscuits. Nevermind...I'll put up with the noise...just pass those biscuits.....burp!

I guess what I like about Monets now, is that dave is back. He had another restaurant over in North Carolina, so he was usually there. Now he is cooking at Monets every night. I have not been to a Red Lobster in over 25 years, but then, I don't eat seafood.

I will definately check out long horn and I love Red Lobster Sampler platter.

Yummy!

It's painful and a lot of work, but I will eat the whole thing.
