My step niece went to The Patch last Saturday night. She and her friend had 2 drinks at $4.00 a piece ($8.00 ). They go to Wal-Mart the next day to finish up their X-mas shopping and her debit card is declined. So they go to the bank and the bank tells her that both of her drink transactions have been added with a $50.00 additional hold each. Thats a total of $116.00 for 2 drinks. We go back to The Patch and are told by Tommy that " We were tired of getting ripped off, so we charge an extra $50.00 until the original sale goes through ". And that the extra $100.00 should be back in your account by tomorrow. As of Tuesday afternoon no funds have been deposited. We spoke with Tommy last night and he stated that he was sorry. And he has lowered the extra charge to $20.00 instead of $50.00. Sorry my friend but I think you just lost our business. Been going there ever since Joe and Linda took it over. Can't treat customers like that Tommy, you can't. Good luck though.

This is absolute BS. And should be illegal. You should call the BBB. Tommy your a tard!

The patch is not listed with the BBB. Meaning, this takes a back seat to accredited businesses. I am not one to stir up the legal system for Tommy as it is pretty much a flawed system anyway. I felt bad for my step niece. Lands a job, ( there are jobs out there ), has stayed with it for over a year now, pays her own bills, but then hits a brick wall with this uneducated business decision.

Your welcome. Pass the word and he'll have to either get rid of it or start paying interest on that money. No business sense at all!!!!

Don't ever use a credit or debit card there ! I caught on to them taking a extra $5 $10 off mine each visit , my bank covered the fraud charges and just told me to not use my debit card there anymore !

Watch out for Brunos too. The bar tender tried to rip me off. I gave him a $20 for my drink and he never came back with change. He laid it next to the register and waited for me to say something. He obviously had a scam going of trying to steal change when he thought bar patrons had a few too many.

True that Glueme. Me and the boys use to ride up there acouple times a week when the old All Stars closed. Then Joe and Linda sold the business to Tommy. Stuck it out for awhile, but got tired of the hoes and the ripoffs. We'll ride 100 miles now for good food, good people and good times. Damn shame what it's become.

Thanks man. No damn sense in it. Can't punish everybody cause you got ripped of by whoever. My advice to Tommy would be to change your game plan, policies, fire off some of the staff, and start over before you loose a once thriving bar. By the way , we probably know each other. That place use to our regular hang out awhile back.

We. Loved it. But since Tommy has it. It just z different breed of people. Go there. The biggest slut and flirt as waitress go is Carrie. She purposely rubs her body and tits all over everyone. Just so sad. We loved Joe and Linda.
We loved them too. Use to have dinner with them at there house once in awhile. There now running the old Morelands Catfish place out 63 N. They had alittle trouble with their manager "Howard", but nipped it in the bud before they lost business. We should all set up a time and go see them and let em know how much they are missed. Don't know Carrie by the name. Probably never will as we will not step foot in the Tater as long as it is the way it is. To bad you can't change time. Nice talking to you Glueme.

I worked for tommy for 2 years and I have never ever had anyone over charged like that. I think this whole thread is bullshit! The only thing with credit/debit cards is they can't be run under 5.00. What probably happen is the waitress might have put the wrong tip on there which would obviously charge. I use my card there all the time and have never had that happen same to my customers. H&R block cards charge if you use it there tho. And I don't believe what tommy said about charging. Why would a bussiness owner do that?? He knows it's illegal!

We spoke with Tommy, we have the receipts from the bank. It was not a pre loaded debit like H&R. He stated " he was dropping the fee from 50 to 20". Yes it is illegal, but as stated before, I will not pursue the legal approach. Give a man enough rope and he will hang himself.
