On the first night of a three-night stay in the Brooke Lane Hotel in which Casey's is located, we elected to have a light dinner there. It was a quiet Thursday evening and there were only a few other people there when we went in at 8 p.m. There was a small group having dinner in the dining room onto which Casey's opens. Our server was totally detached as she took and filled our orders. She then disappeared and didn't seem to want to come back. I had to ask the bartender for drink refills. My wife had a small order of mussels and announced that they were among the finest she has ever had. Apparently the local mussels seem to have a particular sweetness about them which was very appealing to her. Who knows how many she would have gotten had she ordered the large as the small was huge in quantity? My fish and chips, by contrast, were only marginally acceptable as the breading separated completely from the fish and the fish itself was tasteless. As a result of this mixed experience I have rated the food only as average.
The high point of the meal was when the GM came over to greet us and chat us up about our trip so far. He undertook to make a booking for us the next night at their sister property, #35, and recommended Packies highly to us for the next.. When he found Packies to be fully booked, he got us a reservation at Wild Garlic for Saturday night.
Although we could still see our server in both the bistro and the restaurant, she never bothered to come back to see if we wanted any dessert or more drinks. Although people could and did receive checks at their tables, I just went up to the bar, signed the check, and left.
