Trust me, I get the whole "first day of school" excitement and having to wait, so that was to be expected on August 23rd when the young folks were getting acclimated into school. My son had been their for a week already, so I only had to bring a few things. After the hour, plus drive to get to Athens, I was hungry. My son suggested a place we had not yet been. We walked to the Court Street Diner and was greeted with a line....no problem. I'm thinking it has to be good if there's a wait, but apparently there were waits at every cafe, diner and fast food place due to the circumstances. He and I waited for about 10 minutes to get a table-not bad! The hostess immediately gets a server's attention and apologizes to her for getting ready to "double sit" her. I know what that means, so I'm expecting a grumpy server. It would seem 10 minutes would go by before we were acknowledge by a server, but wait, not our server. Eventually, a "happy go lucky" comes over and says sorry for our wait. Seriously, I was ready to leave. We already knew what we wanted-we had enough time to think and re-think of what we would order. My son ordered some pancake looking sandwich with a sausage patty, hashbrowns and a egg in the center. I ordered the cod fillet sandwich with broccoli. OMG, it probably took a good 45 minutes for that to come. By the time we received our food, it was warm, at best, the fish over cooked and we were out of water. Let's just say, if I had to go back, I'd probably throw a temper tantrum. I would consider giving another go, but NOT when they're swamped because they clearly cannot handle volume....or was it the server. HMMMM!
