The food was horiible, and the place should be closed. Turn it into a Whole Foods, or a Trader Joes. I know that will work!!

The place had many problems as do most that
cater to that crowd! Worked there in the late 1990s
to early 2000s and for awhile things rocked other than the little boca brats and their self entitled
parents. I made some great money during football season and other big games, the bartenders Tanya and Scott were great and one of the only reasons i stayed as long as i did. At one point i was the only fulltime barback and the owners told me to tell them what days i wanted to be work and i did then they told me that i got too many of the good days and had to be fair, well im was the only barback so i deserved those shifts. long story short the owners were jerkoffs and that family slowly screwed themselves!!!!!

Former employees (hell, even current ones) always have something to bitch about. Why do you get into the business if you hate it? Working in that business is not easy, I admit, but don't be surprised if you have to put up with customers, even god awful ones.
As for Wilts closing, that's a shame. My son loved the place and the food wasn't half bad. Landlord is obviously an ass. Fix the darn roof and work out a settlement with your tenant.
Agreed!!!
