I also live in the area and agree with the sentiments of the review "Really Awful". This restaurant is only blocks from my house. In the 1990's, we used to eat there regularly for breakfast (okay) and fish fry (I usually ordered the sirloin steak instead). At that time it was not too bad. But through the years, we have noticed that the food has gone from average to terrible, and the service has become not only slow, not only unfriendly, but downright rude. It is difficult to dine somewhere when you are afraid to ask for silverware or extra tartar sauce, or to ask for the third time, where is the waitress - and then to get the ice treatment. Almost afraid to think about what they might have done to my food! It is hard for me to grasp why the place is crowded and noisy on Fridays - who keeps going back for more punishment? Consistently rude, not one occasion. Absolutely not recommended! BTW, we did get our silverware - it was thrown down on the table after multiple requests and by then, cold fish.
