Service... well whats lower than an overall total failure?

I dont usually ask too much. I like to have a feel like I got an enjoyable meal, a good beer and acceptable service. I felt like I only got one of those on this visit.

Service was miserable. We arrived hungry, wanting a good beer and in a pleasant mood. The dining room wasnt busy, and we seated oruselves after asking what was protocol.

Once we saw our waitress, we were basically accused of being idiots not knowing what we wanted when she first came by, as she pointed at the beer list about 20 ft away printed on an 8.5x11 sheet and walked away. When she returned after leaving us with menus I selected my beer and said I was ready to order my food, and she left as soon as the last person said their beer order.

10 minutes later she dropped our beers off and as we started to order our food she walked away again.

20 minutes later when she returned to get our food orders I ordered a corned beef Reuben for $8. I received a small rueben that wasnt even as good as I would have expected from Arbys. My fellow patrons ordered burgers (after waiting 15 minutes to hear they were out of the original items) and received what was described to me as "A $3 Sams club frozen burger". Once our meal was finished I approached the bar to order a growler as the beer I got (Porter) was quite good. Our waitress (who we hadnt seen even though we finished our meal a good 20 minutes before the point) was behind the bar and filled my growler quickly and said she would add it to my bill. I stated we would like our bill as we would like to get going (having been here for over 1.5 hours at this point) and it was STILL another 15 minutes before we received our bill.

I will NOT be returning, to Michigan Brewing Company in the forseeable future as I can find excellent beer elsewhere in this state, and they offered nothing else worth entering for.

I regularly go to Things Beer, which is a brewing supply store located at the location of MBC. Usually when I grab brewing supplies I'll stop in at the pub. Over the last 4 years I have consistently had the WORST service that I can remember at any brewery I've ever been too. On some occasions particular bar tenders/waitresses seem to only serve the regulars at the bar while ignoring others at tables, on other occasions like today (50+ patrons due to a homebrewing class and discounts) I'm not sure who was getting waited on, seemingly no one.

It took over 20 minutes to get our first beer order and it took more than 45 minutes to get 2 bowls of soup, a salad, and a sandwich. This is unacceptable. The food came out, not as ordered (was asked if I wanted onions on my chilli and I said yes, and there were none), and the potato wedges were undercooked as they have been several times in the past. I had a few pints of the Mackinaw Pale Ale. Their beer is average, and I had no complaints. Not exceptional, but I didn't expect it to be. There was no designated bar tender, only 2 servers serving 50+ people, and I guess there was only 1 person in the kitchen.

Overall, I've been here many times and I am consistently disappointed with the service and quality of the food. Go for the beer supplies which are reasonably priced and with good selection, but don't stay for the average beer, substandard food, or inferior service.
