This is the third ownership I've seen at this restaurant which used to be a local favorite. It's been sliding downhill for 15 years. Just thought we'd give it another try for Sunday dinner given the current owner's bad luck as of late.
Since we arrived before 2:00 on a Sunday, we had the option to partake in the Sunday brunch. The hostess suggested we check out the brunch before deciding. I did so only to find no resemblance at all to the slightly better than average brunch that was put on by the previous owner. The menu was extremely limited and contained no premium choices.
Hence, we ordered from the menu. My wife had the chicken Caesar salad entree. She had nothing bad to say about it, except that it wasn't authentic (no egg or anchovie in sight). I had the fish & chips. The two, uniformly-shaped portions of battered cod gushed liquid from inside when cut into; the batter on the outside was greasy and the cod itslf was chewy. Add all this up and this smacks of obviously having come from frozen.
The by-the-glass wine list is contains only budget wines, each $6-$7 glass nearly paying for the bottle.
After 20+ years of patronizing the businesses in this building, I'm sad to report that I've paid my last trip.
