We had visited this place some 25 years ago and loved the food, drinks and atmosphere and were looking forward to reliving our past. We made dinner reservations for Friday at 6:30 and arrived just a few minutes early, only to stand in the entry for 13 minutes without anyone even acknowledging we were there. It was like we were invisible. Finally, a waitress greeted us (I don't guess they have a hostess) and when we said we had reservations she said it would be a few minutes. By then it was already 6:40 so we sat at the bar and ordered drinks and some oysters on the half shell. We got our drinks (mostly ice, three sips and they were gone) but no oysters. We noticed another couple decide to leave after waiting about 20 minutes and should have followed them. At 7:14, 44 minutes after our reservation, we were told our table was ready and when we mentioned the oysters they said they would bring them to our table. We placed our order and the oysters did show up, but they were the smallest I've ever seen. The food was just fair, the crab dressing they place on top of the Stuffed Flounder was too heavy, and I didn't notice any stuffing, the vegetable I don't even remember, the twice baked potatoes were cold (like they had been frozen and not fully heated), the salad was OK and the bread was GREAT, but didn't make up for the slow service and cold potatoes. The Stuffed Flounder really wasn't stuffed, they just poured some sauce (they call it dressing) on top of the Flounder.
This place would be perfect for Robert Irvine and "Restaurant Impossible" to come in and make over. From the kitchen, the wait staff has to bring the food either thru the bar or pass the entrance. The furnishings appeared to be the same as it was on our first visit, 25 years ago,
and the prices are high for what you get.
Overall, very disappointed in our reunion visit, except for the bread! We won't return.
