First time eating at the pines the atmosphere was ok and our server was very nice. But then came the food it was inedible soup was barely Luke warm salad was good but really how can you mess up lettuce tomato and cucumbers the house dressing was tasty. Out cam the entrees I ordered Newport Chicken and it was rubbery like it was cooked in the afternoon with mashed potatoes that were mustard yellow in color and could have been used as mortar to hold up a brick wall. My wife ordered twin BBQ pork chops and it was like eating sawdust. After one bite of each meal we both pushed them aside and the owner walked by several times seeing the meals pushed aside and never stopped to talk to us. After 20 minutes I told my wife to wait in the car and I got up and found our waitress to get my bill. She said you haven't had desert yet and I responded the food was inedible and I just wanted to pay our bill and leave. Now the owner stepped in finally and asked what was wrong. I explained my frustrations and he was very polite about it and said he wouldn't charge us for the food and asked what he could do to make me happy. I told him that it was to late my wife was in the car and I want to at least pay for the bottle of wine we shared and at least tip the waitress for doing her job
