At The Top Of The Bay Restaurant - Oakland Beach Rhode Island Complaint - Over Pricing - Not Being Able To Deliver What They Offer For Specials

Review by happydazed8 on 2011-07-31
Twice I went to the above restaurant, for prime rib @ approx 7pm and they wear out of it, not offered another steak at a discount price, plus they charged $7.00 for a one ounce shot. after waiting 45 plus minutes to be seated both times and not being able to get what you want is a disgrace.

Greed is good when used properly, but for some it's a self destroying disease, that ruins themselves and their business.

7pm may be too late. Yes, I eat dinner at that time and much later. But the special may be very popular. Did you point out that the prime rib was the reason you came, and inquire as to why it may have been unavailable twice?

Bar liquor is always way overpriced, in my opinion. I'd sooner pay $7 for a shot of my favorite, than $7 for a glass of house wine (typical).

I've never heard of getting a discount on some other entree when the special is no longer available, but it is a darned novel idea.

I agree with trmn8r. If something is very popular and the restaurant is not on the order of Hell's Kitchen, it is very possible that they sell out early. I used to drive cabs in Indianapolis from 5 PM to 5 AM, and about a block and a half from the grarge was a little restaurant that had an unbelievable breakfast. If you were like the first 20 people in the morning you got a huge plate with two eggs, bacon, hashbrowns and biscuits and gravy, all for sixty-five cents. This was in the seventies, but you couldn't touch that anyplace else in town for under a buck and a half Red Cab drivers usually got all of the available breakfeast specials.

I don't understand the comment that greed is good when used properly. Will someone please explain?

Greed, in its healthiest form, can impact others for greater good. In its worst form, it can undermine and devastate others. It’s a personal choice and a personal value decision. Google Gordon Gekko JIS.
