The Atlantic Complaint - Bad end to a wonderful night.

Review by wild0653 on 2011-10-26
VINEYARDHAVEN, MASSACHUSETTS -- We are frequent travelers to Marthas Vineyard. We went to the Atlantic restaurant - wonderful food, professional wait staff and manager.
However things went quickly downhill: Sitting at the bar a man vomited all over the ice and bar etc. The two female bartenders were quick to clean etc.
A woman sitting at the bar asked the male bartender to pick up left over vomit parts that were still visible. I thought her comment was appropriate. The male bartender replies: "Well, do you want to hop back here and help me?!" The woman then gets angry and yells at him. She and her party eventually left. However I was stunned at the response at such an innocent request.
I guess I should consider the source. But this experience left a bad taste in my mouth.

I remember one time bartending, me and another bartender were debating whether or not to cut a guy off as maybe he had too much when he proceeded to barf all over the bar. We got our answer, ahhh the memories.

If an attractive woman asked me to pick up vomit parts, I might find the comment appropriate.

Getting to the heart of your complaint - if there were two female bartenders who tended to this matter, the natural thing for the male bartender to do would have been to point out that they missed some parts and have them clean them up at their convenience.
