Restaurant Responds to Review Requesting Servers 'Show Some Skin' In Clever Way (ABC News)

Not many restaurants have the chance to respond to a customer’s review in a smart, effective and cheeky way. Atomic Grill in Morgantown, West Virginia, however, managed to do just that.

After a customer posted a review on UrbanSpoon -- which has since been deleted -- requesting that the servers show more skin, owner Daniel McCawley took matters into his own hands.

"It was brutish. I was upset. I’m a father of a 12-year-old girl and I’ve got five sisters," McCawley said. "The way that women are treated is pretty personal as far as I’m concerned."

Rather than just get upset, McCawley took action by giving the customer exactly what he or she asked for: more skin. From now through Memorial Day, Atomic Grill will be offering a potato skin special for $7, and 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the West Virginia Foundation for Rape Information Services.

"We took offense to the review and wanted to flip it in a positive way," McCawley explained.

He said the restaurant has so far received a "tremendous" amount of support. "My Facebook blew up overnight," he said. "I really hope this will be a positive thing."
