Walking The Marginal Way on October 21st my wife and I saw Beachmere's sign advertising their 4-7 Happy Hour and decided to give it a try. Delightful. Wonderful setting overlooking The Marginal Way and Atlantic Ocean. The bar tender was a hoot and mixed near perfect drinks. We enjoyed it so much that last evening (Oct. 23rd) we decided to go back for cocktails at sunset. Sadly, what an unpleasant experience. We mentioned that we came back because of how much we had enjoyed sunset here two nights before. The bar tender last night was sullen and unfriendly. She asked my wife how her cocktails compared to the ones mixed two nights ago; my wife very diplomatically told her tha the previous ones were better, which clearly did not please this bartender. She got very defensive and stuck it to us by charging us the regular drink prices rather than the Happy Hour prices. This was our first time in Olgonquit and won't be the last. We really liked the location of the Beachmere and were considering it for our next visit, but certainly not now. Any venue that would hire staff who are so unpleasant to customers does not deserve our business. The bartender overcharged us $4 and cost her boss future business.
