To be fair I will not rate the meal... or the margarita. All I can rate is my random experience. My wife and I had dinner reservations later at a different restaurant but dropped into Spanish Village, mid afternoon, for a margarita and appetizers. The waitress advised us "That's a problem". She informed us that it was restaurant policy to only serve drinks with dinner. No dinner, no margarita, and appetizers don't count. The place was slow and could use some customers too. The waitress said we could ask the owner, which I accepted. I explained to the owner, a nice old lady, what we wished to have and why. She stated the policy was in place to prevent drunks and she would not change it. On the way out she stated "I hope you come back again". Well, Not likely. I appreciate efforts to maintain sobriety, but that requires an educated staff that has to know when to "Refuse to serve", not a "letter of the law" that cannot be enforced by the "spirit of the law". We were well dressed, very pleasant, and obviously sober. The owner could easily, and should have, made an exception to her own rule. I do appreciate that they run the place as they see fit, have been doing it for a long time, so maybe they don't need nice couples coming in for snacks and a drink, and making a one drink exception...but I like snacks and a drink on occasion, and I won't get it at Spanish Village. One other note, the place looks a bit broken down from the outside (I thought it was closed at first) and could use some sprucing up on the inside.
