Leslie Jones, who is in Atlanta working on the TV show “Kevin Probably Saves the World,” was displeased with the service she received at dinner Tuesday.

The actress and comedian, known for “Saturday Night Live” and “Ghostbusters,” previously blasted the Ritz-Carlton via social media and is now letting the Atlanta Fish Market have it.

“I wanted a nice meal and wow Atlanta Fish Market gave me the worse service I’ve EVER gotten,” Jones tweeted Tuesday. “Then instead of the manager coming to make it better, he came and gave me the worse attitude EVER! I can’t believe this!”

“Ms. Jones, we’re very sorry to hear that you had a negative experience at the Atlanta Fish Market,” the restaurant tweeted in a reply. “We’d appreciate the opportunity to learn what happened & hopefully make things right. Our guests’ experience is our top priority, & we appreciate you bringing this to our attention. ” 

Jones was not swayed by the restaurant’s response.

“Ask your snobby manager who thought it was just black people trying to get out of paying instead of it being the bad service and terrible food,” Jones wrote. “He actually said ‘No you just didn’t like what you ordered.’ Um yea cause it’s nasty son! I just wanted to eat in Atlanta! Y’all ruin that.”

It’s not clear if the restaurant resolved the issue with Jones beyond addressing her tweet.
