We had a wedding for my grand daughter this past weekend and I was so disappointed with the food it wasn’t even edible and it not only took forever to come out but I had guest that came hungry and couldn’t even eat the food. I feel that my granddaughter deserves and apology and even a reimbursement of such for the bad quality of food they served to her guest.
