We also found the service to be terrible at Peg Legs. Last year in '06 we ate there. It was on a week night, not crowded, and the service and food were fine. This year, in Oct '07, we were greeted at the door by the owner. I told him I had just traveled 2500 miles for a steak and that i enjoyed the one I had there last year. he shook my hand and said it would be 10 minutes, and seated us at the bar. After 30 minutes, we asked him if our table was ready, and he stated 2 minutes. 2 drinks and another 20 minutes go by and I'll be damned if another couple came in and was seated immediately! We were also tired and I was very hungry; it waqs raining cats and dogs outside and getting latter by the minute, or we would have left then. My wife got up from the bar and questioned the wairess, who told us since we were at the bar, we WERE seated! When she told her we were only sitting there because the owner put us there, she said the owner must have been saving a table that had just been vacated but not cleared. The owner finally seated us outside at a table that had been available all along. They got us fed, but the waitress was not at all happy. My wife's filet was OK, but my t-bone was the poorest cut of meat I have ever had: no filet side,and so stringy with fat that I could hardly cut it. By that time I was so PO'ed that I ate what I could. When the owner brought the bill and asked how it was, I told him it was terribe. He offer no apology or discount. We paid and left, with no eye contact or acknowledgement from the owner. Never going back. We had great food at Lee's, the Greenhouse, Cheri's, LoLo's at Grand Case, Cap't Oliver's at Oyster Pond, and the older hotel on the water front in Phillipsburg, to name a few. I understand that every place can have a bad night, but our experience was an insult.
