OK,
People please be aware, be responsable, and pay attention. It will benefit you and your friends.

Last couple times I was at Brownes, when we sit in a group, they WILL NOT give you seperate bills.

I had me and a friend, 2 hamburgers, 3 beers, It cost my input of $70.00, That is pretty expensive.

We had everyone account for what they ate, looked at the menu, what they drank, tried to read the ticket that looked like they wrote a 3 page document on a bar napkin (it was not legible)

Everyone put in their money, with extra for tip, and we were still short..... this has not been an isolated incedent, has been 2 for 3 occurrance

We had some people that did not even get what they ordered, and the staff said well, this is what I have for you, do you want it ????

I suggest you demand seperate bills, or sit at seperate tables, then once the order is given, move tables together. Because some people are just over paying, weather it be due to overcharging or what, all we know is we had each person donate their food cost, drink cost and extra and still seem to be short.

Example:
Dude A had a burger, 2 beers, a shot, he put in $30.00
Hot chic B had a salad, ice tea, 2 beers, she put in $25.00
and we kept the same formula through the bill and we were still short in the end.

Just beware.....

Not to start a war here or anything, but what Eddie is saying is true.

If you do go with a large group, there is a waitress there with long blond hair and she is AWESOME!!

To say the least, I have been very displeased.
I do not enjoy $70.00 hamburgers.

Or the bar in Fairhaven on the water...I had a chicken thing, Spider had a burger, and Laney had some chicken thing. 6 beers and a couple sky blues. $78.
I said "Hey, they captains and cokes are not mine". 20-30 minutes later she brings me a bill with only the total, not itemized......$75.
Yeah, right...all those cocktails were $3. Wasn't going to wait ANOTHER half hour for her to try and get it right, just paid it and don't go back.

I know we have been stung a few times too! I always demand separate bill unless there is only 4 or 6 of us.

i always ask for a separate tab. some people actually get offended and i really don't care. been stuck paying more than i should more often than not.

kenny likes to start a tab and i've recently asked him to stop doing it. i'd rather just pay cash each time.

That has happened to us numerous times too! Brown's quite a few times!
I instantly ask for seperate tabs and tell the waitress if she does it, we will tip her extra...usually works lately!
