service disappointing at best

I have been looking forward to trying the food that Hell’s Kitchen has to offer for several weeks and finally Tuesday after work I had the opportunity to do so. What a let down….
Tuesday is a mexican inspired special day…beer and tequila specials and $1 beef or chicken tacos from 4pm-7pm.
The atmosphere is lively and fun..also pretty clean. Considering it is in the heart of downtown, the parking situation isn’t bad either. The food was nothing to write home about, but certainly worth a buck (we went with the specials to keep in the spirit of things)…chit chat around the bar alluded that the regular menu offerings were not to bad either.
With things moving so swimmingly along one would think that you had the makings of a nice dining experience….until it’s time to talk about service (or lack there-of as this case may be) The bartender clearly hated her job..a fact that no one at the bar missed because she spent the majority of her time complaining loudly to co-workers about it. Maybe her super tight uniform of the day was making her cranky, but in any case patrons who already put in a hard days work didn’t really want to hear all the negative hub-bub. Questions were anwsered briskly and usually were accompanied by an eyeroll. When we were finally given the check the prices on the drinks were $2.50 more (each!) than indicated on the website, in the local foodie pub AND on the big chalk board conveniently located directly behind the bar. I asked about the discepency – honestly expecting a simple computer error- only to get another eye roll and the brief explaination of “that special didn’t really take off” Wow, seriously? There was not a manager available to help me understand how an advertised special “didn’t really take off” an hour into it…
The tacos were honestly not bad…in fact the chicken taco was actually quite good. Good portions, served hot and nicely seasoned. Lot’s of fresh lettuce, tomatoes and cheese. The beef was ground beef and somewhat oddly seasoned, but certainly not terrible. I didn’t try the fish, but a fellow chowhound gave it a thumbs up.
If not for such rude service I would have rated at least 3 stars.

Hell's Kitchen

We went here while on vacation in Wilmington more to see a bar that has been used in t.v. shows such as Dawson's Creek, One Tree Hill, and others. We were hoping to see some memorabilia from the shows inside, but there wasn't anything…
