“Pretty good meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

On this Friday eve, my husband and I went in for the early bird specials which are between 3pm and 6pm. My husband had the fried cod with salad, rolls, French fries, and 3 pieces of fish. I had the shrimp scampi with a cup of clam chowder, baked potatoes and shrimp. The food was pretty good. Portions were adequate.

“Coupons will ensure trouble”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

We visited this restaurant because of coupons picked up in the local paper. We also had a argument about them with the owner. Staff do not look professional and lack training. They seem totally terrorized by management. Food was just average.

“Out of date, below average food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2014 via mobile

Too much stuff (bric-à-brac) in foyer. Poorly decorated, a hodgepodge of styles. Old dried arrangements on windows sills Salad was iceberg with slice of tomato and onion, no cheese, no croutons. Bread was a block of 4 rolls broken off probably from a large block. Broiled fish was blah. Small portions, no special sauces not even tartar sauce until asked for. Wines were cheap brands.

“We will never go back !”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

We travelled 38 miles across town to this restaurant because our newspaper had a coupon only valid on the Sunday we went and some friends said they had been there sometime in the past and it was OK. We should have read the latest reviews. We had the same terrible experience of waiting almost 90 minutes for our food and had to argue non-stop about the coupons we had. The poor waitress had to go back and forth to the kitchen or management to try and sort this out. The oysters on the shell were OK but we had ordered the broiled seafood platter. First the waitress said our coupon was only good for the fried seafood platter until we showed her the very specific description on the coupons. Finally she served us a BOILED dish in butter of nondescript white fish plus 4 or 5 shrimps. So much for a seafood platter ! It was an all-you-can-eat menu but we definitely had no appetite for more of that dish ! We expected the oyster special to be valid for everyone as there were no restrictions mentioned on the coupon. Only one was allowed. When we requested to see the manager, we waited 10 minutes to meet with some gruff lady claiming to be the owner. Definitely someone with zero sense of hospitality and public relations skills. We were trying to get her opinion to see if we would come back. Totally argumentative, non-apologetic, blaming the poor waitress cowering in the corner, shouting at her to shut up, etc. Claiming the coupon was not valid on holidays when the coupon very specifically mentioned it was only valid on that Sunday ! Nobody seemed to have been briefed on the specials advertised ! Some of the food in this place may be edible but the service and attitude of management is totally lacking, making it a very unpleasant experience. I hope the owner didn’t forfeit the waitress’ tips as she was obviously bewildered in such a disastrous environment.

“dont bother with the coupons or going with any goup over six”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

went there last night with a group of eight,we werre seated right away and eventually brought our drinks, we ordered appies and waited a long time for them the waitress blamed the kitchen for the wait. They finally came and were good, she at that time said if you thought you would like to reorder fish on the all you can eat you should order before the meals come, which we thought was strange, but a couple of us did so. Sure enough our reorder came before our meal we waited a long time and finally came the meals, they were all hot and very good tasting no complaints from anyone except the wait and timing of the reorder. The bill came we could not use any of the half doz coupons we printed off the computer all for various lame reasons and 18% was added onto our bill because of the size of the group. I have in the past paid 18% and more if the service, food and we had a good experience. This was not worth 18% tip the waitress added. We thought she intially looked at the group and said to her self Im getting the 18% and I dont have to work for it. I called the owner the next day and complained to deaf ears, she said the kitchen was not backed up we received our reorder of fish before our meal, she said that shouldnt have happened, and the 18% is added to large groups because some people in the past have not paid the tip and the waitress works her butt off for nothing. I suppose occasionly this happens but, ...hello...maybe its also for this reason," not good service".FOOD GOOD BUT DONT GO WITH GROUPS OF OVER SIX PERIOD COUPONS ARE A WASTE OF TIME!
