My husband and I go out to Half Moon Bay at least once a month. Most of the time we take my 87 year old mother with us. We always stopped at the San Benito House before we went to lunch for one of their wonderful Bloody Mary's. The last time we went there, in March, we sat down in the little seating area at the back of the bar (they used to have comfortable booths, but apparently wanted to make it more "bar-like" so they removed the booths). It was just my mother and myself. We waited for approx. 10 minutes while the bartender came around the front of the bar to hug a couple of guys who came into the bar, and continued to ignore our prescence. My mother then went to the end of the bar and stood waiting to be acknowledged. After she stood there for approximately 5 minutes (completely ignored) I told her we were leaving. EXTREMELY RUDE!!! We were fairly regular customers, had been going there for years, but apparently they don't want anyone over 40 years old in the place anymore.
I used to tell everyone to go to the San Benito House for their Bloody Marys but I WILL NEVER ENTER THE PLACE AGAIN AND NEITHER WILL ANY OF MY FAMILY OR FRIENDS!!!
