    An unusual combination of how the owner tried to do everything right and yet, the waitress get it all wrong.We stopped here while traveling across Indiana. My wife, daughter and I were wanting to avoid fast food and stumbled upon this restaurant. I was immediately impressed with their gluten-free options. There was a lot to choose from! I had a gluten-free french onion soup that was excellent, a half-rack of ribs, garlic mashed potatoes, and buttered broccoli. It was all quite good and reasonably priced. So what went wrong:1. The waitress was clueless as to what Gluten-Free meant. she told me she would make sure the chef did not add cheese to the French Onion Soup. I had to tell her Cheese did not have gluten in it. Then she asked if I would like to substitute something for the potatoes. I told her potatoes did not contain gluten in it either (and I made sure they were not adding any fillers). 2. Wait time - this was a Monday evening and the restaurant only had a few patrons. We waited more than a half hour for our dishes to come out and she brought out the soup and salad at the same time as the entrees. And by the way, we noticed other patrons were given a bread basket and we were not. I was with my wife and daughter who are not gluten-free so it wasn't because I was GF. When I asked what took so long and she explained our food was accidentally given to another table.3. Cold Food - Seems like the chef did a bad job of pulling together the entrees. My ribs, soup, and broccoli were hot but my garlic mashed potatoes were stone cold. My daugher experienced similar. Her burger was hot but fries were cold.3. Waitress disappeared - After serving the food, our waitress must have gotten involved with something else. My wife had also ordered a hamburger and wanted ketchup. After waitting more than 15 minutes, hoping the waitress might come back, I finally got up and asked someone else to bring us ketchup. Had to do the same to get our check. In my mind, the fastest way to reduce your tip is to make me get up and find you (the waitress).Overall, the food was decent and the prices were very reasonable. The place was decorated very nicely. If you are in Wabash, there are not a lot of places to go. With a little better waitressing, this could be a 5 star restaurant.
