This used to be my favorite diner in Watertown, but not anymore. It's no wonder we were the only ones in the place in the late afternoon. That still didn't keep us from getting crummy service.
I took my husband there for the first time, to show it off. Mistake. He had the meatloaf special, which came with mashed potatoes and a vegetable. The gravy cost extra. Huh? Meatloaf and mashed doesn't automatically come with gravy? I had the clam strips, which were so-so. The clam chowder wasn't too bad. Coffee was pretty bad.
I won't even get into the overcharges on the bill, and the reason given for them was, "because I'm new." Still didn't remove all of the erroneous charges. We were just glad to get out of there.
I think I'll skip this place for Denny's from now on when in the area.
