True honesty comes in many forms. And last night, we were the recipients of an “honest” opinion.
Walking into a newly opened restaurant in Michigan City, IN I asked the first person I saw leaving if the food being served was good. Now I know “good” is a subjective word, and truly didn’t expect any reply other than a simple “yes – it is!”. I wasn’t disappointed in that regard.
“The food is wonderful”, this lovely lady replied, “but the service isn’t. I suggest going elsewhere.” She then proceeded to direct us to a restaurant that was across the street from our hotel, on Pine Lake, called T-bones.
We were so shocked to hear an honest opinion from someone, we got back into our car and drove to T-Bones. And neither my husband or I were disappointed. The service and the food was excellent. Our waitress told us stories about the town, her husband, and the history of the hotel/restaurant. We exchanged opinions about politics, Penn State Penalties, and other current events. And being Martini Monday didn’t hurt either.
Honesty truly is the best policy all the way around! A huge thank you to the “good” Samaritan who aided travelers in their hour of need. Both my husband and I appreciated it very much.
