My wife and I went to Heaven City on a week night for a quick dinner, we have been here many, many times over the years. This was the first time my meal was not very good, actually it was just plain bad. We had a 2 drinks @ the bar first, wonderful bar room, very nice, good bartender. We were seated in the main dining room, the others appeared to be closed, not very busy that night.
For starter we had the shrimp dish, which was wonderful, hot and full of good flavors. The beef barley soup was good, hot, nice chucks of beef, nice serving. I ordered the duck trio this was the bad dish, 2 of the 3 choices of duck were bad, the duck leg was so burnt it was black, I could not break the skin with a knife and fork, the duck sausage was cold, not cool but cold. The duck breast was great. My wife's fillet oscar was top notch, perfectly cooked, plenty of crab, this is the way all other meals have been over the years.
I let the server know and see how bad my meal was, she was very good, she appoligized and took the meal back to show the chef. She wanted to take it off the bill right away, I told her, no, I don't want that, that's not why I told her. She took the shrimp off anyhow and said she was sorry again. Both the server and the bartender worked their butts off while we were there, while it was not packed, sevral tables of 4 came in while we were there, all in about 5 minutes time. They worked together and did a nice job. While 1 meal was bad, it does not change my opinion of this restaurant, which has alwas been very good over the years. Plus I don't know what else they could have done to try and make it right. I will go back and give them another try very soon. I think you would really enjoy the place, nice little drive there, right down ES
They did change the menu a little also from our last visit, they were also running St. Pat's specials which we did not try but all sounded intresting and good.
