My wife and I went to Barn Hills last night and when the watriss came over to get our drinks she wanted to see our receipt..I must had droped it on the way to the table..Any way when we told her what we had ordered she inturn went all the way to the front and asked the cashier if we had paid for our meal while we sat there eatting with nothing to drink shes up there talking to the cashier..It really pisses me off when she went up there to confirm the dinner has been paid for..we are in there all the time but as long as Lisa is there BarnHills will not have to worry about us ever coming back in there ever!!!

That's their policy and the only way to make sure someone hasn't wandered in off the street and sat down. It seems kind of ridiculous that if you got there all the time that you didn't know to keep up with your receipt, and I'm sure it would sound fishy to a server as well.

I dont know last couple of times we went to barnhills the food sucked and I believe that is good enough reason not to go back. one time we went there and the main course or whatever was liver and onions. I know some people do like this and can see having it as an option. I do not however see giving this as the main option. We was there once when a main boss came in and reamed out the manager while customers was eating.I used to be a big fan of the place as you could go in and eat and with children its great because you dont have the wait. Recently tho its not been worth it the food has lost quality and cleanliness has suffered as well. Good concept needs to be improved upon with execution is concerned

I aggree with Offended..what difference would it make to her weather they paid or not...she could of went a different route beside going right to the front and leaving them drinkless..cause you know as well as I do the law would of been called and they would of got into trouble and they were already eatting..everyone drops and loses things and like I say it could of been handled different..would noone feel offended if they say something and that person runs up to confirm what you had just told them? It would me..the ones that say no...well they are the ones thats gonna get caught with there pants down and they will see how it feels..they will feel offended and be mad as hell...In closing I will say this..to be what they charge for there Buffet its not worth it at all..

She could have handled that several different ways! But I know who you are talking about she's nuts! I would have demanded my money back and walked out right then, as for her tip it would have been a tip on how to treat people and handled that kind of situation! We no longer go there as well, it's so nasty in there, last time we were there my 4yr. old said he could not eat because it's dirty in here mommy!

Many people don't realize that the coke machines at restaurants actually mix the drink syrup and carbonated water right there at the machine.

The soft drink distributors quite often give the restaurants the syrup for free, just for the advertising it gets from having their brands on the menu. In that case, restaurants pay only for the carbonated water, which amounts to a few pennies per glass.

So, it's kind of ridiculous for restaurants to be charging so much for soft drinks to begin with, and almost insane for the waitress to make such a big deal out of a refill.

Anyone in the restaurant business will tell you that it's much better to give a digruntled customer his entire meal for free than risk him telling everyone he knows never to eat there.

I am sure it is their policy to check with someone but she should have handled it better.
She could have said 'I apoligize but our policy states we must check for payment' or 'Here lately we have been having a problem with people coming in and not paying, not saying you are doing this, but because it has been happening we have been told to really buckle down and follow policy'.

What I always do is place the receipt partly under the condiments so that the waitress can see it and I know where it is.

I also agree there are much better places to eat!
ummmm yea

our family use to go there but no longer..the last time we were in there it was nasty, the food was horrible, and it smelled and looked like it had not been cleaned in days..by the way this was at breakfast and we were the 3rd group that had went in...so it was not because it had been a busy day...we now go to ryans, the food is great (and more choices), the place is really clean and the staff is very friendly

Did you ever think that maybe the waitress was checking to see if the lady that took thier cash might have let them in and pocked their money? Even when you go through McDonalds, the rule is.... if you don't get a receipt with your food, call the manager. It's so easy for the cashier to take your money and send you on in and keep it without ringing up the sale. Don't blame the waitress. Life is good when there are checks and balances.

I went there yesterday and I put the receipt in my pocket, the lady came over to ask what I wanted to drink and she asked for my ticket, I told her I must have dropped it. She said "thats OK" what would you like to drink" and that was the end of it. So I guess it depends on who the server is. I had to go to the buffet 5 different times because they were not keeping the food filled. I would go up there for something and nothing there, when it finally got put out another item would be gone, I couldn't get all my items at once, kind of a hassle.
