We had read in the "Bite of Wisdom" about the place called Sam's on the Square. It sounded like a neat place to go and eat. So my husband and I decided to go on Friday for late lunch. We arrived at 12:40pm, and yes it was crowded, but not like most other places we have been to before. We really felt like the main rush lunch crowd would be almost over by the time we got there and ordered. We were greeted and asked where we wanted to sit. Well, we thought upstairs would be nice and warm. There were 2 other groups of about 6 people at each table and then us at another table. At 12:43, we ordered our water as our drink. And yes we timed everything, because we wanted to see since a new place, just how good they really were. At 12:48 we finally got our water and ordered our food.
My husband ordered the California Club with a much recommended BBQ Chili Fries as his side for $7.99. I ordered the Grilled Mahi Mahi taco for $3.99. At 1:25pm, after both tables were cleared, we were the only ones left upstairs. A waitress came with our food, unfortunately, it was not our order, so she apologized and left. Well we finally decided that if we are still here at 1:40pm we would leave because that means we have been there an hour without any food. Finally at 1:31 our food order came. I am sad to say, what a huge disappointment this was. We were so hoping that the food would be so good that it would overcome for being late. That was not the case, my taco was cold, his BBQ fries were not exactly what we anticipated, and his sandwich was just plain. I thought mine came with a side, but I guess I was wrong. So after waiting almost an hour for our food, it only took me 5 mins or less to eat that one taco. This is the 2nd place I have attempted to try after reading the Bite of Wisdom. I can truthfully say, I will just pick out my own places going forward. I hope Sam's on the Square makes some improvements, or it will not last very long.
