It's not a problem on my end. If that is the results Google wants to present then so be it. I used to be able to at least get one of the dictionary pages to come up first page when I did this kind of search. The good is when a definition would came up first 5, then it was bottom of first page or 1st of second. Now it was almost last on second page.

This is not my first rodeo, I am just pointing out what I consider bad search results but it seems that marketing by Google has deep effects. Everyone seems to think I must change my search word to get it as close to perfect as possible instead of Google coming up with the best results based on content like every seems to scream should be the discerning factor.
Yes, this search term was very general, but what if I didn't know what it was? By these results I would conclude a gristmill was a restaurant chain.
So based on every one's response here, the top ten results are OK?
I also agree with DigitalAlien that no way does this effect Google in any way. Google = Search in the public eyes.
Before we go further, I realize nothing is going to change because of this discussion, its their results to present how they want and all that so just was hoping to get opinions on how accurate you think the results were.
