There is a New Resturant opened off the Erwin Highway on the road to the Laurels. It has attempted to be somewhat like The Farmers Daughter and Sherlie's. It's menu falls way short of either. I decided to take my daughter along with the family for her birthday Saturday night. We arrived at about 5pm and found it to be a hugh place with most of the dining area upstairs and no elevator. they offer a limited amount of handicapped dining down stairs. We were seated almost as soon as we entered although my son in law who is handicapped with a brace on his leg had to manage to make his way upstairs.(Handicapped area full). We ordered our drinks and when they arrived had our order taken. Forty minuets later we were still waiting. There was not a hugh crowd and waiters and waitresses were standing around. We finally decided we were not going to get anything to eat and got up to leave, as we started down the stairs I saw a shabby looking man sitting on a stool eating a bowl of soup beans. I asked if he was the owner and he stated yes he was. I told him what had gone on and that we were leaving due to this. His statement was quote " TOO BAD, IT HAPPENS" I then advised him it would be my last time there ever and his response was " FINE DON"T WANT YOU HERE ANYWAY. This is one of the worst places I have ever seen and one of the worst attitudes by a resturant owner I have ever seen. There are too many places to eat to put up with this. I can only hope that soon I will see him using his resturant as a place to store hay. I would not ever recommend anyone ever go there. The man is an IDIOT and sure no buisness man.
The prices are higher than The Farmer's Daughter and the food selection is about one third of the selection of it or Sherlie's. I cannot comment on the quality of the food since we were never served, but several of the customers exiting as I entered stated it was not all that great for the price they charged. Take my advise and stay away. I took my buisness to Fatz's on Market Street and spent $77.00 on a good meal and great service. Oh well his loss of $56.00

I don't know why you even entered this establishment because there's a sign on the door that says "No Idiots Allowed"

Thanks Frank for the information, I will be sure to avoid that place. I had already heard it was not up to par with some of the other Family type places.

Glad to know about this place. If they feel that way about a person who is trying out the Resturant for the first time and they do this, I have no doubt they feel the same about every person who comes in. Don't think I will be going there.
A simple We are sorry this has happened and what can we do to make it up to you and your party would have been the right thing to do.Guess some buisnesses have so much money they don't care.

If you wanted fast food you should have went to the golden arches. Did you really want the wait staff to go and prepare your food? Some people feel as though they are entitled too much.

It sure is odd how Frank, Restdinner and Brandi each capitalize the first letter of words like "Family" and "Restaurant" that don't even need to be capitalized to begin with.

F U Frank, FU,
I do believe that 40 min is more than an ample time to wait for any resturant. The Peerless does not take that long and they fix everything from scratch. I had a reasonable expectation of service and it was not met. I believe I am the one as a customer who decides if the service is good or not. I also used my right to walk out. I do not have to make excuses for poor service or in this case no service.
From your response and attempt to defend it you must be related to the D*** A** who own/runs it. Yes if it comes down to it I do expect the staff to go prepair my food, whatever it takes to get it there. I am the one with the money and they are working for me. It is their job to see that my needs are met. Not the other way around. If you had the sense of a Rock you would know that.
Pedro Gonzoles there is also a Elizabethton forum and I posted there. I also plan to put something in Letters to the editors of both papers. Am I P**** O** you bet. If I can help them out of buisness I will do my best to do so.

I find a certain part of Frank's story here very curious. Frank is leaving a restaurant in anger, spies a shabby looking old man on a stool eating beans and automatically thinks this person must be the owner?? Really? I wonder what kind of riches the hobos downtown are really into then. Frank's story comes off as stretched, if not completely fabricated.

It's not the point of fast food it's appears to be common courtesy and professionalism. Normally in any other restaurant if there is going to be a longer wait than normal, the waitress will come and let you know, bring a basket of rolls and keep the drinks filled. With service like that and the i don't give a shit attitude, this place won't last long at all.

Frank just got scared because he knew he could not afford the bill. I bet Frank also abuses his wife, being all impatient and such. Frank, I bet your pimp hand is strong when the Mrs.is late with dinner. Do you hit her and then tell her you are leaving and will never be back?

I read this story because I thought it might be about a new place that serves mustard & biscuits. The way I see it, this here Frank feller is just a spoiled little crybaby who is never satisfied. If his story is even true, he could've just walked out and chalked it up as a bad experience like everyone else has from time to time. Instead, he got all butt-hurt and couldn't resist writing his sad story to bad-mouth the place and seek attention for himself. I wouldn't be surprised of Frank and Brandi and Restdinner are all the same feller as suggested by Pedro. I also wouldn't be surprised if it's really a woman pretending to be a man. Either way it all reminds me of a dog barking just to hear itself bark. Umm-hmm.

Frank is one of those anal-retentive people who will jump out of a running shower to pee in the toilet. Changes his oil & filter parked on the side of the interstate during a soaking downpour because it's been exactly 3,000 miles since his last oil change. Has been washing his hair nonstop for the last 10 days because the shampoo bottle says "Lather. Rinse. Repeat."

Nice to see the family members are hard at work lying and trying to shift blame to myself. Yep I just made it all up to defame a great resturant, didn't wait 40 min. without service. walked out for no reason picked out an old man sitting on a stool who was eating by the stairs and admitted he was the owner/mamager made it all up. He did not tell me "Too Bad, it happens, and don't want your buisness. You bunch of inbred idiots. It happened and it is quiet obivious you are part of the ownership or employees told to respond. It happened just the way I stated in my Inital Post. Most people if not involved with the buisness would be concerned and react in a totally different manner. I have noticed in your trying to discredit me that not a single one of you has stated you have been there so that rates your responses invalad and talking out you rears since you have not seen what I did first hand.
I guess now you will change your user names and start praising your visits to the place. I stand by my statement "I would never recommend anyone eat there due to the owners attitude.
To Bob you are right and notice how your perfectly written comment has been put down by the ratings it again proves the employees or family members are doing the responses, just another reason to stay away. I really do not want to be served or fed by a bunch such as that. There are too many great resturants all over the area who want your buisness and glad to have you and your money there.
The rest were so upset they did not even take time to completly read the write up and make up such stupid comments as he could not pay, beats his wife, just picked out an old man they are real smart folks. Family trees are probably a 2"X4" just goes straight up????

Just ignor them Frank, trolls are everywhere on here. I believe your story because there are several places in the town of Unicoi with the same attitudes with one exception, Friends is the only place I have eaten in Unicoi that is worth a visit. I work outside and have eaten at every place in Unicoi County. I had a similar experience as yours at The Maple Grove Restaurant a couple of years ago. We didn't even get waited on. We sat at the table for over 15 minutes and the waitresses stared at us with that blank FU look on their faces. Then a local family came in and they were immediantly waited on. Needless to say we promptly got up and exited the establishment. I couldn't help myself but I flipped them off as we left.
