A formerly good to great restaurant is on the skids and may have already past the point of no return. Look at the date of my and the next review. Something has happened and I don't think there is any hope.
Our waiter was so clueless that I was convinced that he had never been to a restaurant in his life. We were the first for dinner and none of the tables were cleaned or set. He sat us but cleaned our table LAST. I GOOD waiter would have cleaned our table first and asked did we want something to drink. We ordered a wine which, 10 minutes later, were told they no longer had. (Then take it off the chalk board, duh.)
The meal was only OK. My chowder was not hot and, in fact, was forming a skin when it arrived. The key lime pie was served without whipped cream or any garnish and the crust was soggy.
Fortunately, we were still in a good mood and were laughing at the absurdity of it all. In short, my LAST TRIP EVER to the New Prospect Cafe. RIP.
Pros: None that I can think of
Cons: Below-average food, horrible service, rundown interior, broken toilet. etc.
