Menus and McMahon: Six pet peeves of dining at a restaurant

Feb 24, 2015, 7:09 PM | Updated: 7:09 pm

As you know, I am an absolute lover of all things food. I go to restaurants often, but that doesn’t mean I always have the greatest experience. I, like many of you, have some pet peeves when it comes to dining out.

Let’s start with the corkage fee at a bring-your-own-beverage restaurant. Honestly, I can’t understand why I have to pay you to open up a bottle of wine for me that I brought. Chances are, I brought my own bottle of wine because the bottles of wine on the menu are two or three times more expensive than the store.

I have five more, but you’ll have to watch the video to find out what they are.

Do you agree with me? Did I miss any of your pet peeves?
