I hate to write this, but our experience at the Canal House was abominable. We both had the "Brunswick Stew" which should have been renamed "flavorless, tepid, thin soup with dry chicken chunks." I could NOT believe just how flavorless it was. I needed to put about a teaspoon of salt into it to make it edible. The bread was dry and stale as well. Plus, we asked for sweet tea and were given unsweetened tea. I just ate it because I was starving and needed something, anything, even this dreadful soup.
Then there was the bill - $26.00. Seriously. Just paid it and left. There was no point in complaining because it was clear this is just what they put out of their kitchen. Sad sad sad.
We left the restaurant still hungry, went down the hill, and ate another meal within 30 minutes.
I'm still stunned. This was the worst food I've ever been served in a restaurant. Maybe they were just having a bad day. I hope that's it.
