Default buggyone, I agree

The post is the first by him which always makes me a bit suspicious when it is a rant. I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt in case the disability were psychiatric and perhaps produced paranoia or hallucinations and the posting represented his alternative reality.

Kinda bought into at least some of it. I couldn't imagine a server making the comments, so took that part with a large grain of salt but anything's possible today. However, it seemed to me to be an excuse to make comments that were reprehensible in my mind. Something tells me the expected response was not forthcoming since no one seemed to agree with much that was said.

I get bad service.............I stiff em on the tip. It's just that simple. They get the message. Likewise, I get good service I give 20% and if I get great service, even more.

If you have noticed, the poster with the waitress who criticized veterans, etc, was a first time poster with his rant and has not posted anything since his initial posting.

Definitely, this leads me to the conclusion it was a spoof and never happened. There are a couple of "Villages Hate Groups" on Facebook made up of unhappy employees who unfortunately cannot achieve our wonderful lifestyle and therefore bash us. Instead of fueling their fires, we should just ignore such rants if it is a first post.

It would take a real low-life to pose as a disabled Vet. However, you'd think that he would stick around for the discussion.

She stood over us as she waited for the money instead of leaving us alone. I tried to leave a complaint on Gators webpage, but there was no Contact Us menu. If I had to do it again I would have asked for the manager. People like this should not be serving tables. I may call tomorrow and ask for the manager.
Very similar experience except my food was awful, wife's food was pretty good.
Just the opposite from what we previously experienced. I did complain online and received a phone call from some executive who apologized and offered a free meal next time we came in. I turned down the free meal and told him that my reason for complaining was not to get a free meal but to make this the place it had previously been. Have been back and the waiter is no longer with them and both food and service has been fine.
