Went there for lunch with a group of business associates. We were seated outside for some reason, even though there was no one in the restaurant. I guess it was too much trouble to drag a few tables together. With no overhead cover, it became unbearably hot very quickly.
Service was SLOOWWW. When the meal finally trickled out, staff had no idea who ordered what. They even forgot to bring out the plates for two of us.
The food was overpriced and lousy. The chicken in the salads still had skin on and was fatty. Why? The chicken was roasted and fairly tasteless. The salad itself was stingy on ingredients, and the dressing was tasteless. The fried shrimp was unremarkable. The "crispy flat chicken" was unremarkable and greasy, and the portion size was tiny.
Some of the dishes were very good--the mac and cheese, the appetizer bread, and the mashed potato side dish, but they could not make up for the rest of the experience.
For the price of a side dish at Sparrow, you can get a full meal with sides at Denney's. Sevice will be faster. You won't have to pay for your water. And your food will taste much better.
