Rocks are extra



We laughed ourselves silly over this at dinner this evening. Our friend ordered "scotch on the rocks" and the rocks were a buck extra!

It's a really fine restaurant in Charleston that's been around forever called "Tidewater Grill". I still love the place but that's something I've never seen before.

that's hilarious! a buck for a couple cubes of ice... talk about your profit margins!

Do they just pour it out of the bottle into your mouth, or the palm of your hand if you're short a dollar?

I saw that at dinner with my in-laws. Told my father-in-law that he should just ask for ice water and "transplant" the rocks. It was an expensive place, too, and I think the nickle-and-diming is pretty lame.

I hope you all realize this, and I am wasting my time explaning it but....

You are not actually paying an extra $ for the ice. Theoreticly you are getting more scotch when you order it on the rocks than if you order a shot or say a scotch and soda water or somthing like that. That is why they charge an extra dollar it is for the extra liquor, not the ice.

I asked because I've only seen such frivolous charges in Mexico!
