An old favorite, we went up to the Hill for lunch recently to take advantage of the wonderful dining options. We decided upon The Old Canteen because of the great value, wonderful food, and long standing history of quality.
Atmosphere - has not been updated since..... Well, maybe never. And the customers would have it no other way. The thing that struck me was that they do not advertise the lunch menu outside, and if people come in to look at a menu, they often picked one up without the lunch insert - leaving them to believe that only the full priced dinners were available.
My wife and I split 2 lunches and some appetizers. The service, sad to say, on this trip was slower than slow. We were not in a hurry, but time and time again we (and other tables) found ourselves waiting for simple things (water, soup, etc.) Even the check came slow.
The food - always incredible and great portions. The lunch options came with soup, delicious bread, and even a simple dessert - all at a great price.
With tons of options on the Hill, you can not go wrong with a meal at the Old Canteen. This review and the accompanied ratings are for the lunch we recently enjoyed here. At night, it is more formal ($$$) .
