Sept. '13: Ate here three times for lunch and got to-go boxes for dinner.
LOVED the Food!
I had something different each time.
But LOVED the sides the most:
--crisp fresh skillet green beans (double order please),
--the clearly homemade cheddar tater tots.
--my side salad (ordered separate) was always fresh lettuce (not head lettuce) with different toppings that fit my main meal. One time the crumbled blue cheese bits on top were almost too much but still delicious.
OTHER MEMORABLE ITEMS:
-Bat out of Hell Meatloaf: tasty and delicious
-Beefy Doo-Dah: difficult to explain - ground beef ball center surrounded by a ball of mashed potatoes then deep fried until the outside is crunchy. Tasty but not enough but I got the skillet green beans. Yaay!
-Chicken fried steak - satisfying and fulfilling.
-Muffaletta: tasty but forgot to ask that it be wrapped so it was dry by the time I ate. My next sandwich I made sure it was wrapped even though the server forgot.
-Turkey Focaccia: travelled well for dinner since I had it wrapped. Good choice.
SERVICE: Great staff when served by the FT staff members, I was acknowledged immediately with friendly service, a menu and a smile with great follow-up as they each covered for each other easily. My last visit had stellar service.
My lackadaisical server on my first two visits made me wait for five-ten minutes before even catching my eye let alone giving me a menu, let alone a glass of water. I saw that she wasn't busy, just distracted for reasons unknown to me and clearly did not care about her customers based upon my lack of service. She also didn't tell the kitchen to wrap my take away (Muffaletta) as I had requested. I had to do that the next time. I alerted the lady owner and she was VERY receptive to my input. Told me my server was part time and she would take care of it. HOPEFULLY SO. So hopefully this server has been trained better when you are there. That is why I gave this restaurant a "POOR" service rating.
I really wish this place well. I found it to be quite a jewel in many ways.
