There’s a place in Morgantown called Atomic Grill where respect for women runs high.


According to The Huffington Post, “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,” the owner of Atomic Grill, Daniel McCawley, told ABC News. “I was upset. I’m a father of a 12-year-old girl and I’ve got five sisters. The way that women are treated is pretty personal as far as I’m concerned.”

Instead of getting mad, however, McCawley responded in possibly the most clever way imaginable.


The next day, McCawley posted a picture of potato skins with the caption “Skins!”


Not only was the potato skins simply a clever response to the comment on Urbanspoon, McCawley even offered a seven dollar potato skin special in which all the proceeds go to the West Virginia Foundation for Rape Information and Services


A wave of positive feedback flooded Atomic Grill’s Facebook page. People commented things like “love the way you responded to that ‘review’.” and “Thanks for standing up for your daughters and sisters. What a good guy!!”


McCawley has since said that the restaurant has gotten a “tremendous” amount of support. “My Facebook blew up overnight,” he said according to ABC News. “I really hope this will be a positive thing.”


What a positive way to respond to such negativity! This is an inspirational story that should encourage more restaurant owners — or just anyone — to react similarly to such comments.
