I attended a professional seminar recently-lots of people at my seminar and at other conferences. But at a community lunch break there was only 10 people in the hotel restaurant,i.e., The Birch River Grill---which was in close proximity to all the meetings.
Half the time I was there, the lone waiter, bartender, and busboy were one and the same. He ran and gave me water immediately--but my order was taken 25 minutes later. As I was finishing my meal, 3 busboys showed up and couldn't do enough for me---too late. The lone waiter, a nice guy, was clearly over-worked. The place was clean, the decor was rather inviting but somewhat dated.
The above, notwithstanding, the food was excellent: Chopped steak, caesar salad, tomato bisque soup. That is the reason for at least an average rating. It's still a mystery why all those conference people avoided the place---they didn't know about Mr. Lone waiter. Maybe if a crowd came in, more servers would have magically appeared. larry j. powitz
