Bad Day for Chicken

Well,I started to eating my dinner almost every other day at Mary's in Ruma,Il. Well, The one week before my last time in this establishment I went to in to eat my dinner. As i ordered my usual i over heard a couple from out of town who had stopped in to get dinner. I heard the elder lady tell her husband, I wonder if the waitress is going to come back to our table. Well, It was about 5 more minutes and then i seen the lady get up looking for the waitress to get one more cup of coffee. Appears the waitress was outside talking to a young gentleman so, After the lady came back and told her husband this they then waited another 5 or 6 minutes and then the lady told her husband, "Lets Go" I am tired of waiting. I then went on and ate and left.
The following week i came back to eat and then sat down at the table and the waitress came in and took my order! The waitress then my order to a little short chubby girl who i knew was a cook there at Marys. She then told the waitress 'Don't give it to me! The waitress then looked at me and then her and the short chubby girl told her to go give it to the skinny man in the back.(I do not know these employees names)Which is why i am refering to them by their descripition. Anyway, The waitress then went in the kicthen, She gave the skinny guy my order and it was at this time he blew up and started cussing! LOL! Yelling Well God Dammit what the hell! Shit! I then figured well its time to leave so, I then told the bartender and waitress forget it and i never came back. I the next day called and requested the owner to call me back! She never called! I never went back! Pretty screwed up place when this kind of crap happens! I give It a TWO THUMBS DOWN for resturants!! But, Its a good biker bar and a bar for old geezers!

Dont feel bad. I've stopped going in there that much cause it takes forever to get service. Perfect example. I used to be off on thursdays and take my school age daughter out to breakfast before school. We placed our order aaround 8 in the morning and it took them 30 minutes to make breakfast. All we ordered was bacon,eggs and toast. Funnier thatn that we were the only ones in there eating breakfast!!!! Over the past few years the service has steadily gone downhill. Country kitchen serves a better breakfast

I agree! Usually it's an hour for breakfast and is typically disappointing. Bland biscuits and gravy,dried out potatoes, etc. Most of the food is frozen before cooking, even your steak and that's just wrong. The service just gets worse, the place is filthy and stinks to high hell. I used to love eating here. Not so much anymore. Just mediocre at best. I'd rather see them slim down their menu and cook a more fresh one.

I too, used to love Marys. But, the last few years have sucked. My husband and I went in a few different times and had trouble with the waitress staff while the owners sat at the bar drinking. Not being waited on, ignored. We tried twice in a row and after sitting there for 15 minutes and not getting waited on we got up and left. I am a firm believer in giving any place a here times and you're out. but, after just two times, we won't go back. They need some older waitresses who know how to bust azz to make money. Not these young girls.
