No, they had nothing to do with Cornbread's.

The owners do not want to hear from the customers. We tried... They know their wine, food and atmosphere to be of a place they would like to go. They missed the boat on customer service. It is strictly an image thing. As for helping the cast parties, i believe they had a daughter in the musical...I want the place to make it but I want the customers to be happy and the quality to spread to the service....Also I would like to see them able to handle the volumn they have befor expanding to the tea room.

I was there and - wrote:
Mainly Drinks is one of my favorite places; I have found the service to be as excellent as the food! La Porte needs this kind of place. There are certain people who will always drag down anyone that is successful, and "WOW" is one of those people.
I was there that night (I had the ribeye - excellent as always), and "WOW" was with a party near the front, listening to the live music (the Moondogs duet - also excellent). They were there all evening, listening to the music. They appeared to be having a great time. I guess "WOW" was the only one stewing in her own juices!
Don't let the haters on this site discourage you from trying Mainly Drinks!
do tell - who is WOW? initials, hints?

They are going to expand by changing the upstairs apartment into
extra seating. The service will be really slow up stairs if they don't change something. I've noticed if your a well known social lite your service is much better. Debra is all about image not service.

I love Mainly Drinks. Both of the owners are very nice people and although they may be a bit overwhelmed by the influx in customers, they are still a new business and will eventually get all of the kinks worked out. I think anyone willing to make such a huge investment on Main street would be welcome to any and all feedback. They might have been too busy to concentrate on what you were trying to tell them that night, so drop them a note on facebook where they have a page. Please don't let one person's negative experience keep you from experiencing Mainly Drinks for yourself. It is a great concept and will do nothing but support the success of Main Street and expand our options for night life in La Porte. I'm not sure who would ever say anything ugly about Deb, one of the owners, either. She is just about one of the most genuinely nice people I have ever met. And no, I'm not related nor do I work for them :) Everyone has a bad day, maybe you just caught her in one.

Totally agree with you! I have had NO bad experience there and have visited numerous times. I even take friends from out of town or from another part of town. It is close to home and very comfortable. The food and drinks are great and the service has always been acceptable. I wish them all the success!

I know, I know. I can hear it now; "Norma E has to make a comment on every post there is".
It sure seems that way doesn't it? It's not intentional, it just looks that way.

To: LOLmaxx

I believe that if you were the owner of Mainly Drinks (which I don't), you would not be posting anonymously. I'm sure "the owner" doesn't mind your posts since they are to the benefit of her business which I also think is great!

I've been meaning to check out Mainly Drinks on Facebook. Think I'll do that now.

You are not the brightest bulb in the box, are you? I would explain the simple joke, but apparently it's waaaaay over your head.

I think MD is very beneficial not only for Main Street, but for La Porte as a whole.

For that reason, I would like to give their information

You're right! I'm not the brightest bulb in box, but I'm not the dullest either.

I know what the joke is but I gotta go. My husbands taking me out for a late lunch/early dinner.

And I will clarify what it is when I return. ta ta

Shame on anyone trying to bring down a new bussines who is growing more and more everyday,
I say this is a Great place, exceptional food and I have been there many, many, many times and have always had great service, there are 3 servers there and all of them are fantastic, This posting hopefully will not detour anyone from going to Mainly Drinks, because I will tell you that you will be missing out.

I have been there several times and all I can say is I dont believe a darn thing "WOW" has to say. 45 min for a drink? 30 min prior asked for water never recieved? EXAGGERATED MUCH ? Those people are working their butts off with smiles on their faces everytime I walk through those doors so I highly doubt that what your saying is even close to accurate. That is a classy place to be and eat, not a bar with food! Its gonna take a little while to prepare a meal like the meals they serve there. If you want fast, heated up food go somewhere else. If you want a classy atmosphere with food as good as anywhere in town, then go to this place! Apparently "WOW" has an agenda or it wouldn't be on the internet !

There 45 minutes before ask for a drink order. Had ask 30minutes before for a glass of water was never brought. Appetizers brought to table by owner but no plates where ever brought to table after 20 minutes had to go to bar and request plates..HAD TO BUS OUR OWN TABLE. The service was the only bad thing there everything else was wonderful.
