Gas Full Service Restaurant – still standing after Jax Girls’ Pint Out visit

Dwight D. Eisenhower once commented:

The Wild Jax GPO Krewe

“Plans are nothing. Planning is everything.”

I am sure when Lindy Loose, co-owner of Gas Full Service Restaurant (9 Anastasia Boulevard – St. Augustine – 904.217.0326) awoke Saturday (August 10), her plans did not include taking care of the food and craft beer requests of two dozen folks, mostly energized women of the Jacksonville Chapter of Girls’ Pint Out arriving all at the same time – with about 10 minutes notice!

But the business-planning strategy of Lindy and husband/co-owner Ben served them extremely well that day!

I was uncertain of the total number of people who would make the trek from Mile Marker over to Gas Full Service when I called Lindy on the way. Earlier, I had called her with an estimate of 5 or so – but by the time companion had us boot-scootin’ across town, that figure had grown close to 25 – and here we were literally minutes away.

We were delayed by the drawbridge of the Bridge of Lions, so by the time we entered, almost everyone else was there and had made their initial selections of available craft beer.

Lindy and the rest of the staff did a magnificent job of taking all the orders and serving the delicious craft beer and amazing food selections. The kitchen staff stretched themselves physically and mentally to deliver outstanding culinary creations to all of us who had descended upon them all at once.

Eisenhower also once said:
“Farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil and you’re a thousand miles from the corn field.”

On behalf of the Jacksonville Chapter of Girl’s Pint Out, I want to express to Lindy, Ben and the rest of their dedicated staff that I know what a challenge our invasion of your establishment presented – and you’re masterful handling of the situation and personable service is why THIS pencil will continue to write the praises of Gas Full Service Restaurant. My heartfelt appreciation to you for stepping up on a moment’s notice and making us so very happy we came.
