Dixie Diner — Rude, Unfriendly employee
My husband and I have gone to Dixie Diner quite a few times, as it is very close to our new home (been here now 5 months). There is one employee, a greeter, who is normally very friendly and the others seem to be okay as well. However, we happened to be served by the same waitress everytime we went, regardless of where we sat. She never smiled, welcomed us or was friendly. A few times I would give up trying to find her and get extra napkins myself where they were sitting on the bar. The last straw was the last time we ate there (we will never go back again). We needed something (don't remember what) and she happened to walk by, saying nothing. After just having taken a bite of my food, I grabbed her attention (because I knew I wouldn't see her again for awhile) and asked her for whatever it was we needed. I covered my mouth and tried chewing quickly to get the words out, but too late - she couldn't understand me. I repeated myself and she left. When she returned with the item, she "firmly" placed our bill on the table, turned to me and told me that "it's rude to talk with food in your mouth, " and walked away. I was humiliated and angry at the same time and couldn't believe she said that to me. It made my husband angry as well. I told him, as she walked away that if we didn't have so much trouble trying to be waited on, I wouldn't have done that. She disappeared after that, never asking us if we wanted or needed anything else. I have never been so humiliated, embarrased or angry at any other restaurant, even fast food joints, as I was that day. If you go to Dixie Diner on Princess Anne Rd. in Va. Beach, VA and get this waitress, I wish you well. We will NEVER, EVER return to this establishment and will definately let our family and friends to do the same. Such a shame.
