Readers' Choice: Best Wait Staff In New London & Waterford

Who deserves even more than that 20 percent tip?

There are a lot of factors that go into making a restaurant work, but the two that are probably most crucial for a venue's survival are the quality of the food and the conduct of the wait staff. Visit any number of review sites and you'll see that these are what make or break a patron's decision about whether or not they want to be a repeat customer.

There are plenty of places to go out for a meal in New London and Waterford, and for this week's poll we'd like to focus on just the wait staff. Even if you spotted a mouse in the corner and your medium-rare burger came back as a charcoal briquette, if the waiter or waitress was exceptional we want to hear about it. Which restaurant has a wait staff you can count on for reliable, friendly service?

We'll take your nominations through Wednesday evening at 5 p.m., and you can feel free to nominate multiple places. A poll will go up on Thursday morning and stay on the site through 5 p.m. on Friday. We'll announce the winner on Saturday.

I'm going to have to second Sue's endorsement of Mr. G's and also nominate Monica's Diner for the best waitstaff in New London. The staff at both restaurants are quite personable, and enhance the overall dining experience at these fine eateries.
