Scissorific Reporter Turned North End Restauranteur Jen Royle Doxxes And Publicly Shames A Guy For Bad Yelp Review After $50 Cancelation Charge



Jen Royle is a sports reporter turned restauranteur who recently (months ago) opened up a restaurant called Table in the North End. I have to admit, she’s one of the more scissorable 43 year old women I’ve seen around these parts.

Table’s opening got a lot of coverage in the Boston media since she’s a blue checkmarked quasi-public figure. The food looks excellent, and it’s North End dining so obviously it’s not gonna be cheap ($85 a person). The problem is they don’t have a liquor license, but that’s clearly stated on their website.

It’s gotten a lot of good reviews, but when you’re in this industry you can’t please everyone. No matter how good your restaurant is, you’re gonna get bad reviews from time to time. Most business owners understand that and don’t take it too personally. Jen Royle is not one of these business owners. Here’s how she handled a recent 1 star review from a guy who was charged $50 for canceling his reservation after realizing that they didn’t serve booze there.

Just to review. A guy using the name Rob P posted a 1 star review after booking a table when Table was closed, then canceling it in the morning, and still getting charged a $50 fee. She had no idea who Rob P was since Yelp is anonymous, so she went through the information he used when he put his credit card down to book the table, then doxxed him and publicly shamed him for leaving a bad review.

That’s one way to conduct business.

In fairness, it does say on Table’s website that they are a dry restaurant and a $25 cancelation fee will be assessed.

But this guy got a $50 cancelation fee. Either way, doxxing a guy you took $50 from because he had the audacity to not be happy about this is an extraordinarily ratchet move. Especially since it seems to violate your own privacy policy, which is also listed on the website.

“We do not share your personal information we have collected from you….with your social networking sites….”

“Data will not be shared with third parties with or without user consent.”

Amended – unless you leave a bad Yelp review. Then we’re going to publicly shame you and our privacy policy no longer exists.

I get why these policies are a thing, and I get that this is on their website so the guy technically fucked up. But at the same time, what business did they lose as a result of this? Was there an empty table that night because of his cancelled reservation? If not, just give the guy his money back.

Rob Prager was not happy about it, and in fairness he seemed completely reasonable.

A normal business owner just walks away from this one. Not Jen Royle though. She doubled down.

Ummm….you have 30,000 Twitter followers and a blue checkmark. You publicly stated his name for all of your followers to see. But please, tell me more about how this isn’t publicly sharing his information.

She then went after pretty much every person in her mentions who suggested that this was probably not the best way to conduct business.

“He’s not a customer.”

He gave you $50 and got nothing in return. Not sure if that makes him a customer but you definitely profited off of him, and it cost you absolutely nothing.

Nevertheless she persisted.

Well, that’s one way to do business I guess. I can hardly say shit because we’re in the business of calling people out who shit on us for a living. But then again, we’re a blog, not a high end restaurant in the North End. If it doesn’t hurt her business then I guess more power to her, but if she’s doing as well as she claims to be doing I’d personally look into hiring a PR person to speak publicly for the business. This is Gaffney-esque.

Then again Jen Royle is no strangers to public feuds. Two years ago she had public tweet beef curtains cat fight with former ESPN trophy reporter Brit McHenry, who is a dreadful, miserable cunt herself.

Months later she challenged McHenry to a fight.


I guess the lesson here is, if you’re gonna book a reservation at Table, make sure to use a fake name. Because if you leave a bad review she’s gonna publicly shame and dox you on social media. If you leave a good review she’ll tweet that out though.

So be warned.

    First off, what’s the chunk doing complaining on TWTR? He should just charge it back on his card. PROBLEM SOLVED.

    Second off, what’s this cunt doing that makes her so like eeeewwwww loook at me. I have a restaurant that will probably a in year or two. No licquor no drinky. Not cool if ur in the north end wanting a $85 meal.

    Both of them are idiots.

    First off, who are the fools who would want to try her restaurant? It’s at the far end of Hanover Street, no liquor license, and it’s FAMILY STYLE you have to eat with strangers. Fuck that.

    There are so many great places in the North End, I’d rather go to the chinese food place across from Saraceno.

    People need to get smart DON’T GO! Also, go to her Twitter some time and read the comments from the pussy white knights. UGH

    Bitch got kicked to the curb by NESN. She has (had) a smoking body, but she is THE definition of buttaface. NESN has no problem getting hotties on their station, so it’s no wonder she lost her gig there. The surprising thing about this is how much of a cunt she is. Not very business savvy to say the least.

      Nothing that the Phantom Gourmet and his brother couldn’t fix. An additional commercial right after the wack job with the pizzas would do wonders. I haven’t watched Channel 38 since I went Hi-Def. I’m assuming the show is still on.

      That station went down the toilet when “Ask the manager” was taken off the air and they stopped showing the Stooges. The 3 not Iggy Pops. And I’ll fight any mother fucker at Faneuil Hall who says different.

    I have backed off on the marketing of my business because I can’t deal with the new potential customers I am running into where, yeah, I tell them to go fuck themselves on the phone because, they’re fake customers. I don’t do it online. But from now on if I do decide to ramp up the marketing and anybody wants me to do actual work like insisting on meeting me in person (which often involves them not showing up and/or rescheduling… or not) vs email, texting , or phone you’re going to have to put down a retainer before I hop in my car to go anywhere. Also if you o.k. me to do a project I will need a check first (duh). I didn’t have to be this stringent until recently for some reason.

    That being said that I have become an intolerant hardass, I would give the dude his money back and let bygones be bygones.

    July 15, 2019 at 2:23 pm

    Speechless. The place is only open Thursday-Sunday, 3 hours at a time. Maybe a “wait list” would make sense if you want every spot to be filled. But that might involve customer service, something clearly lacking here. I went over to Twitter and checked her out. There are more rants about other cancellations. By the way Jen, you spelled “cancellation” wrong in your tweet. Some people have disputed their charge with their credit card company because they received nothing in return for the charge, and the credit card company gave the money back to the customer. She posted the memo from the company and threatens she should post the names of those customers! Her Wikipedia career info shows her changing jobs about every year. The longest time she spent in one job was 3 years. Something tells me she doesn’t get along well with people. She’s already saying she is closing in 5 years when her lease runs out and moving back to New York where people aren’t as**es (or something to that effect). Great thing to say when you are building a business in Boston!

      You beat me to the “cancellation” bit, but, as she’s already an ungrateful boss-bitch from hell who could use a Gordon Ramsey intervention, I’ll give her a pass. Its misspelling is as common in normal use and even in the media, as the inappropriate use of the word “comprise.” (Meaning, Turtle Staff, NEVER EVER EVER use the phrase “comprised of.”)

    Casual Observations

    1) North End Diners are majority tourist
    2) Tourists heavily rely on Yelp and Google reviews
    3) While Hanover Street is a gold mine for restaurants, the Table location is blah. It’s down near the Commercial street end next to a fucking salon. There’s almost no foot traffic down that end.
    4) It would be a shame if everyone that read this article gave a 1 star review on Yelp and Google

    Oh Yeah…. She seems like a miserable fucking cunt. This dude books his reservation early AM and calls at 8am to cancel (justifiably) and you still hit him up. THEN you berate the guy publicly.

    Also it is a “family style dining” restaurant where you sit at a long tables next to strangers like the old Legal Sea Food in Inman Square, and there’s only a 32 seat capacity, and, yes, she does do the cooking having been on Bobby Flay’s show and going to some Cambridge cooking school. It is by no means “high end”, but i’m sure it costs high end like everything in the totally fake North End.
