    Good for you for calling to complain. I know restaurant owners would much rather you do that than a)just never come back or b)complain to all your friends and/or post a bad Yelp review without giving them a chance to make amends.

    I would have thought that getting “sick of food” would be totally insane except that it’s happened to me a couple times this year. After visiting my mom and eating every meal out, I felt like if I saw another plate it would be too soon. I guess that’s a good place to get to because then it balances out the previous eating.

    Just glad you all had a nice visit and trip to the beach! I actually got in a fight with a friend b/c she was saying the WA coast was far superior to the OR coast but she’d never been to the OR coast! Nor had she really seen the WA coast but I think she was counting in the San Juan Islands which I thought was absurd. We worked it out though šŸ™‚

      I usually go the route of posting a negative Yelp review but this time I wanted to complain to the manager. I called to get her name to write her an email but she was available to talk! I’m glad I did. I like the restaurant and the food is great–I want to go back.

      As for the beach, there is NO way the WA coast compares to the Oregon Coast. I’m from Seattle and have Washington Pride like the rest of ’em but no way does it compare. šŸ™‚

    That’s a shame about your poor dining experience, especially since you liked it so much before. If you end up going back, I’d be curious how it is the next time. Did you leave the server a poor tip? Not that everything was her fault, but if her service was poor on top of everything else, it’s something to consider.

    I’ve never gone running on the beach because I worry about twisting my ankle or something. I prefer to just walk on the beach.

      If I had been paying the bill, I wouldn’t have left a tip at all. But someone else paid, and not only that they tacked on 18% tip since we had a large party.

    Ugh, I hate when I pick a restaurant for a group and it ends up being a disappointing experience! That’s too bad because the food looks really good.

    I love the Oregon coast, it’s such a beautiful place. That’s where my husband and I went on our honeymoon. I like running on the beach but I stick to the firm sand, and it still makes my calves pretty sore!

      My calves are a bit sore still.
