I went to Varsity Grill after months of being away on business. On the outside and stepping in it looks the same, nevertheless after being sat and welcomed by the "new" owner aka old waitress, who smelled like an old filthy ashtray, and her words of how much better it is now than before, I was imagining the same great dining experience I had before. I order my favored Varsity Chicken and Bread Pudding. Already anticipating the meal in front of me, I dig into my dish. In place of the usual pleasure my taste buds were punished with shockingly bad food. The lemon butter is oily margarine, chicken is dry and pasta was a mountain of goo on the side of my plate. I'll confess to liking al dente' pasta however I would not grumble over pasta cooked to an edible state, but just visualize the lack of ability to separate one noodle from the blob. Anyway, I continued on hoping the bread pudding would not be a disappointment. I was told that it was the previous Chefs own recipe. NOT! Again it was the most unpleasant tasting bread pudding. Enough said about that. Other thing I noticed was higher prices and deplorable service from the most uneducated tattooed waitress ever. No I’m not a tattoo hater, but come on. I did attempt to inform the staff, as the "owner" had left, about the lack quality in the food. Even though it was not my intent nor did I ask for a discount I was told not to expect one as it is policy that if you eat any of the food, it’s yours and they would definitely boxes it up for you to go. Really? This may sound like a harsh review, but if you dare check it out yourself. I leave many reviews mostly good, but on occasion I am dissatisfied enough that it merits a negative one. DINNERS BEWARE! Too bad, it used to be a charming tucked away eatery with delicious entrees and sweets
