Re: “Burwell's drops like a hot rock on the dining scene

No problem with this review either. What I really wish is that people (critics or reviewers) would write articles like this and then turn off the comment section (will never happen though). Comments have become an opportunity for others to either pile on or feel like they have to protect the restaurant, food, or staff. Then restaurants feel compelled to explain themselves or justify their decisions. The average person has no idea how hard it is to get food right 300 times in a row especally when all of the customers like or dislike different things.

I agree with "raverjames", its best if restaurants say nothing, read the positive or negative review and make adjustments (food or service), its the best you can do. Restaurants defensive responses are a no win situation (as good as it might sound to you, it won't to others). If you have to say something then say the "I'm sorry ..." from "raverjames" and move on.

Re: “My father built a business from scratch when no one would help him

Great article ... my son and daughter-in-law are building their own business as well (good to see young people step up). Did they get help, of course. From the Government? No. From Parents? Yes. But they are putting the hard work into it themselves, dealing with the day to day problems, and meeting the bills.

They started a restaurant in Charleston when the economy wasn't doing that well and they are making a go of it. Did the government help, no, they got in the way and they take too much in taxes and give little back in services.

When you live off government handouts the only solution to every problem is bigger government.
