If you are traveling and contemplating stopping by Logan’s Roadhouse in Ridgeland, Miss., for dinner on a Saturday night, all I can say is, good luck. At best, the place is poorly managed. At worst, the staff favors local patrons over travelers when it comes to seating people in the order in which they have arrived.
Logan’s was busy when my wife and I walked in at 8:25 p.m. on a Saturday night in January. We put our name on the list for a table for two. We were told we’d have a 25-minute wait, and we said that was fine.
We noticed during the next hour, however, that many locals who had arrived long after we had had already been seated. Yet we were still waiting. We also noticed that a number of tables were vacant, but they were full of dirty dishes. There apparently was no one to bus them.
After spending more than an hour waiting – and watching others bypass us and be seated – we gave up and left. The name Logan’s Roadhouse leaves a bad taste in my mouth – and an emptiness in my stomach.
