This salad is worth ordering more than once! The description from the menu doesn't really do it justice:
A char grilled boneless breast of chicken, sliced and served over mesclun greens tossed in our cranberry vinaigrette, with pecans, red wine soaked goat cheese, and strawberry halves.

Loved the pub atmosphere, and the food was excellent. A very laid back and relaxing place to grab a burger and a drink. Staff was friendly, service was excellent. Loved it!

Dinner was tasteless and rather expensive .The waitress was excellent .Overall there are many other resturants in the area which serve a much better meal including the scrimshaw resturant in the hotel.This would not be a selection in the future.

We ate breakfast and dinner at Simpson's At Desmond while staying in The Desmond. The food was consistently excellent. I had the prime rib, while others in my party had a rib eye and tropical shrimp, and were all pleased with our meals. Breakfast did not disappoint either. We received pots of coffee for the table. Egg dishes were perfectly cooked. Special orders were accomodated. The fresh fruit IS fresh fruit. The pancakes were super tasty -- must be made from scratch. We always had 2-3 people servicing our table, which reassured us we would never be left wanting for anything. No rushing, just plenty of food and staff!

Both the staff and the food at Simpson's Grille were a joy! I enjoyed my meal to much that I chose to eat there for breakfast and dinner the next day!!! The food is amazing and the portions are very generous!
