Perhaps I went on an off night, but I was thoroughly dissapointed with Remington's.
Many of the reviews here have been very good, however, I have to say that in my opinion, the word "mediocre' is generous when describing the food at this establishment.
I went on a Friday because one of us wanted a Fish Fry which the Milwaukee area is known for. Being from the area myself I know what the expectations are for a fish fry. The person who ordered the Friday fish fry said it was pretty good. However,for my meal, I can not say the same about. I ordered the special which was described as a "horshradish encrusted white fish with choice of potato and soup or salad'. Ok, so I chose the salad. It was essentially a bag salad mix of greens with a side of dressing, a couple slices of cucumber an two cherry tomatoes. I then ordered the garlic mashed potatoes to go with my main course. So, when the main course came, it looked attractive, but was essentially bland and tasteless. Considering the seasoning of the fish was horseradish, I expected something of a taste sensation to hit my tastebuds. There was none of that. I could not even perceive the flavor of horseradish and all of the food needed to be salted. Bland, bland, bland. And all that for 18 dollars. The best thing on the plate where the al dente baby carrots and asperagus. I woudl have been better off ordering a hamburger. But then again, this is a place that serves as a main dish, mac and cheese, so, perhaps I had my hopes too high for this place.
A very meager glass of wine will cost you 8 dollars.
This is the kind of place where I say, I would much rather spend half that money at the best upscale grocer in town and prepare a fabulous meal at home rather than have my taste buds let down by less than ordinary fare at somewhat inflated prices.
