Re: “Noon Hour Grill

haven't been treated this poorly in a very long time. My four friends and I were sitting at a table for four. When I ordered she rolled her eyes at me. I didnt mention it to my friends and let it go. We sat patiently waiting for our food. Three other customers came in about 10 minutes later. She took their order and they were served literally within minutes. I felt confused but I was enjoying my company and again let it go. When more time passed I began to feel uneasy but again I chalked it up to the fact that perhaps what the other customers ordered was readily available and what we ordered, while basic, perhaps wasn't? More time passed. A party of 5 came in. She looked at them and then at us and back again at us. She pointed at our table and said to the party of 5, " you sit here, they have to move!" (YES. no joke). She looked at us and pointed to a table nearby with 3 chairs ( we were a party of 4) " you sit there! " she coldly commanded. She picked up our waters and moved them to the smaller table. The other party apologized to us and offered to move somewhere else but she said "no. They have to move!". The place was empty aside from my party and theres. I felt like i wanted to cry and yell all at the same time. All i could say to her was" that was so rude". All the patrons, the three that she served first as well as those that she gave the table to were white. I am not. I don't want anyone else to experience this. If you are a person of color do not support this business.
