I was a "to go" customer in search of a drink to take for our trip back home. It was obvious they were understaffed and I could tell they were doing the best they could. No one looked like they were starving or ignored. My own experience was they had exactly what I needed, they apologized for my wait and were as kind as can be. I think that's pretty exemplary, because a very grumpy man lit into them 30 seconds before they waited on me. He was so rude and nasty to them I vowed to come home and write a review. I've been to this location before as a dine in customer and I've never been disappointed. The prices are reasonable, food is good, and service fine. The disappointment to me was the man who took joy in being so nasty before peeling out of the lot. That show was worth one star and reminded me to be extra nice to people no matter what.

They are constantly interacting on FB gauging what their customers want, and I appreciate that. There are great family-friendly movies available, the food is reasonably priced and good, and they are very polite. They have a fun laser tag experience and Thursdays even offer play at a reduced price. They even admit they know they aren't the only drive-in available in town. Maybe, but they do everyone with such professionalism, to us, they are the only option.

I tried to leave a complaint via the contact page at the time, and again on their FB page, and both disappeared. Someone recently suggested writing here, so I'm giving it a go. We had been to Elm Road several times over the years and it wasn't that the screens or food was that bad, it is what I've learned is the owner. If you've been there, he is the golf car driver. I'm sure people have tried to scheme or cheat him in the past, but what he did to our family, I'll never forget. I'll also never grace that property again. It was Summer 2011 but I've heard he is the same, so I decided to post, again because someone recently suggested it. We would always say when we bought tickets that we had our own food and wanted to pay extra, and this time we asked about switching screens because the second movie wasn't one our family wanted to see. The kid charged us a couple dollars and told us if asked, to show a different color ticket. We didn't even make it to the second screen before the golf cart blocked us and he started yelling about how we were cheating studios by switching screens. We tried to show the ticket and explain and he wouldn't let us talk. He got called away and told us to stay, and we did. Trust me when I saw we're not a trouble-making family. When he came back he continued but at least let us show the ticket. He asked how much extra we paid. When we said, he said we still owed money, we were undercharged. We get out the cash and he's still yelling about how we aren't supposed to switch screens. He moves back to where my kids are seated and asks their ages. They tell him and he said they were lying. They were 7 and 12. I will never forget that. He then accused us of harboring people in the trunk. They were Adirondack chairs. Once he took our three dollars we thought we were done. He went on the loudspeaker not only to remind people about the concession stand, but went on to tell our story, that apparently not everyone knows not to switch screens because it robs studios of money. We didn't fight him, we weren't disrespectful, the only thing we did was try to get a word in edgewise, show him the ticket, and pay. And this was our treatment. He still wasn't done. Once we finally parked at the second screen and he made his announcement, he drove to us again. He was at the back of the car and he shouted out, "Just writing down your license plate in case I have trouble with you later." I was so upset I couldn't even speak. I cried through the entire movie I was so upset. When the second movie was near over, long after midnight, he drove up one last time. He asked where my husband was and I pointed to the front of our car, outside, where he sat in the chair. By then he talked to the kid who registered us and it was obvious there was miscommunication, and we had told the truth all along. He never apologized, but at least in a nicer tone said we can't switch screens. Lesson learned. Since then I've been to Skyway. They are so friendly. They interact on a regular basis through social media and try to please the customer. The prices are reasonable. To this day our youngest asks if anyone will come on a golf cart and yell at her. Not at Skyway--where I've told everyone I know to visit for a pleasant, family-friendly drive-in experience.
