We should have listened to the girl at the front desk of our hotel and gone to Barbara's Fish Trap. This place ruined what should have been a nice weekend. We pull into the parking lot which was PACKED...you'd normally think this is a good sign. We went inside and couldn't figure out where all the people were...plenty of open table for the amount of cars outside. FYI - I get that it's a "pub", but the hard wooden benches and chairs and dark décor suck. ALL doors wide open, so make room for the flies. We came to find out that the reason so many cars were in the parking lot were because there is apparently a playhouse right next door, who not only hijack all of the parking spots for this restaurant's patrons, but the bathrooms as well. They know all about it, the waitress warned us that soon a parade of people would be in to use their restrooms. So, about 5 minutes after we found this out, sure enough here they came. So, we're trying to sit there and enjoy our beer, and we are literally surrounded by a line of no less than ten women and maybe 5 men right next to our table waiting to use the bathroom. The bathrooms are maybe 2 feet from a whole row of customer tables. We had already moved once to avoid this awkwardness and really didn't want to have to get up and relocate again. We ordered an appetizer as well as our meals, and all of the food came out at once. Our waitress, who was completely overwhelmed finally had a chance to come over and say, "Oh sorry, I did actually circle that to come out first." Wow you did? You have to TELL your kitchen that appetizers are supposed to come out first? So at this point, we really didn't even want the overpriced appetizer, were growing increasingly frustrated with the potty parade and the razor thin waitstaff. I barely touched my fish n chips because I was really not in the mood to eat anymore at this point. The only thing they didn't screw up was the beer...when we finally got it. I paid $70.00....that included a minimally obligatory tip....for lousy service, a bathroom show, and mediocre food that I barely ate. Don't waste your time unless you like to have your night ruined.
