We love our long-ago memories of Dan & Louis ("Dan & Louie's"), & were excited to go back. So much has NOT changed, we were happy to see. But my meal, the fried cod (I.e., fish & chips) was a giant disappointment. Two TINY pieces of fish. That's all. The server said the "half portion" portion that I'd ordered was 3 oz. Well, maybe it was (two pieces? 1"-2" in diameter?)--But, that's not a meal! And it would have cost me $6 more to get two more tiny pieces of fish! That's not a meal. My husband said his oyster stew was the same as it was 25 years ago, and he loved it, so that part was good.
We have fond memories of Portland's Old Town (it was seedy back when; it's seedy still today), and I'm pretty sure we will go back to D&L. Next time I'll have the cioppino -- and pay for the "extra portion". Come to think of it, my husband did pay for extra oysters in his stew, and he said that the amount was just right.
