Not NEVER never, since MIL and Babybartfast still love it, but tonight's experience at Cracker Barrel was absolutely surreal. Among the four of us, there were five major mistakes with our meal - no one had the right food! I suspect the server had poor hearing or something, because some of the mistakes were probably due to miscommunication - I ordered chicken livers and got chicken fingers, and Babybartfast ordered a grilled cheese and got grilled chicken. MIL got the entirely wrong sauce on her entree, though, and DH's cheeseburger was wrong even though the server clarified exactly what he wanted and wrote it down! I also never got the lemonade I ordered. When they brought our food the second time (the right food), the manager came by, and I made a point of saying "I didn't get the lemonade I ordered but that's okay; I don't need it now." (Since we were half done with the meal by then.) The server then brought me the wrong lemonade "just in case", which would have been nice if it hadn't then showed up on the bill (at the higher price the lemonade I actually asked for was billed at).
I did track down the manager and told him I wanted the lemonade off the bill (and explained that I didn't want to get the server or the kitchen in too much trouble, not knowing the source of the issue, but the mistakes in our food were ridiculous). He took off the lemonade and our desserts, which I didn't ask for but kind of half expected
Anyway, the food was better than usual (when we finally got the right food!) and I do appreciate the reduced bill, but I spent the whole time sitting there waiting for my corrected dinner and wondering what eHell would think
