Disgruntled employee? Hardly, lol wasn't it you who mentioned they had only been opened a week. I am just irritated that a good thing seems as though it was ruined.
I was actually using "google" to find when Stone's was opening again, came upon this site and the timesrepublican. After hearing reports from friends and family from Marshalltown and surrounding communities my comments do not go unwarranted..........
I do not want to stir up trouble and apparently have done more damage then what was intended-which was none. But I do think I have a right to defend myself, yes. And my agenda was to find out what was on the menu, if they would be having their Thanksgiving buffet, what it was like, what the food was like, the atomosphere. But so far everyone has been so vague. The only reports I am getting are from friends/family and they are all very stuck in tradition and have nothing good to say, but in the flighting moment I thought they were biased...........I thought I would check it out.
So I apologize, Mtown Native answered my question about the decor' inside briefly below, good enough. Again will there be the buffet?
You know, after our last "back and forth" I decided I wouldn't write you back a week ago because it seemed we were just beating a dead horse. After reading your most recent post I felt I had to say something.
I would tell you I've now lost all respect for you, but that would be a lie. The fact is that when I read your first post I was so embarrassed for you that the respect was never there to begin with. You may ask what you did to deserve such harsh words? Let me tell you:
1. You trashed a place you had never tried based mainly on a lack of "tradition".
2. Your only source for your posts is a close family member who tried the new stone's, who you then later discredited in a future post.
Now, I'm not a perfect man,(Lord knows) but I'm a strait forward honest man. I tell you what. Do what Russ said. Go try the place, and talk to the owner. I don't want to call you a liar, but you do seem like a skeleton in the old stone's closet. Prove everyone wrong, then come back and write an --honest-- first person review. If you don't like the place nobody will attack you or judge you. Plus, regardless of your opinion, you will then have the respect of myself and others on this site.
You may say our respect means nothing to you, but your human so it does. Just like you may say you can now go to eat a maidrite anytime, even 20 years from now, and not think of a pig with a dress and lipstick every time your eating it.... but you will.... every time.
Try the place out, prove your not a dirtbag, and you will never hear a word from me again. Otherwise, keep your mouth shut about things --you-- know nothing about.
