Disappointed with food

Had lunch today at the Painters Lodge Lounge. Myself and 2 other people ordered the Heirloom tomato salad with shrimp, and received a plate with 1 piece of lettuce with and miniature tomatoes (definitely not heirloom tomatoes), canned baby shrimp and balsamic vinegar, boccincini cheese and no seasoning. I also ordered beef and bean soup, there was not even beef broth in this soup ...forget a piece of beef. We were extremely disappointed. The service was just ok due to the fact that they were so understaffed. Took over an hour to receive our meal. It was obvious how run off their feet these girls were so they definitely were not the blame. Travelled from Nova Scotia and had been told great things about the food,totally disappointed. Hopefully it was just a bad day. Rod
