My family ate at the Tower Inn Cafe last weekend. This was the second time we ate here. Our first experience was much different from the second. Maybe the experience has much to do with the waiter staff. The first time, we had a delightful, quirky, cheerful red-haired young lady with glasses and the most enthusiastic and energetic attitude. This time, our waiter seemed a bit less experienced. First, the wait time. I don't mind waiting for decent food, but both visits, the waiting time was excessive. We waited well over an hour for our food last weekend, and probably close to an hour when we visited in July. The restaurant seemed short staffed. Secondly, the temperature of the building. Both times, the temperature in the restaurant was FREEZING. Thank goodness I had pants and a coat in the car, which I was able to go and get. But I could see a little girl in a t-shirt and shorts across the room and she was shivering and trying to cuddle in her dad's lap. Thirdly, the menu: the menu is complicated and apparently has items that come and go, because I ordered the "pasta salad of the day" from the menu, greatly looking forward to a well-prepared pasta salad, and was told the restaurant does not carry this anymore. It would be best to not offer menu items that customers can't actually order. Fourthly, my husband ordered an gyro that was very short on meat. He ended up ripping the pita in two and putting his small amount of meat on the half pita. On the visit in July, we ordered dessert, which was excellent. This past weekend, we had been there too long and nobody wanted to wait more time for dessert. Overall, I would have to rate these two visits as "average" if I summarize them together. As I mentioned, the waitress in July made the visit quite enjoyable, which wa why we returned but there were too many negatives during our visit this weekend.
