Visited this local place after driving by for years. I have to say, first off, it was about a year ago, Aug 2011. Charming and very Christian-oriented. Menu a bit pricey, but we were willing to indulge!
It was a huge disappointment.
My husband ordered fried shrimp. I ordered the chicken Oscar.
The shrimp were of the caliber of what one would buy at Walmart: flat, grainy battered ground up shrimp, way overdone. Not what we expected for 16.99 as I recall. The green beans were more akin to mush. The mashed potatoes were definitely "box" tasting. (In this day and age, no excuse for that at all.)
Baked potato was good, as was the chicken Oscar.
Perhaps seafood just isn't their draw.
Our server was adequate.
Perhaps we will try again for breakfast instead.
