This review is in 2 parts. The part 1st is my updated review 2 months after my 1st review. My 1st review is still valid except for the chicken parm (as updated in the 1st part on pasta's.\r
It's gone downhill and prices way up!! DO NOT ORDER Any PASTA dishes. They're awful and way over priced. Shimp and Linguini was blah...Chicken Parmesian was chicken and RAGU canned sauce. Seafood Fra Diavolo way over priced at $25.00 for a pasta dish...I payed a lot less a few months back. So what happened? Chef's night off? The food was not very good. I can't understand anyone charging upscale Manasees prices for mediocre food. \r
I have been having lunch and dinner here for years and the food is excellent. Although I will admit I loved the hamburgers when they came out big, juicy and greasy. (they use to be cooked on a flat grill vice open flame...oh well that was over 20 years ago). The burgers are still excellent. They are very accommodating for large groups...I would give them a warning, but they do not take reservations that I know of. The Seafood Fra Diavolo is spectacular with a mountainous amount of food. Chicken Parm is one of my favorite inexpensive staples. Swordfish is cooked to perfection. \r
But by far the one thing you must have is a cup of chili. This chili is the creme de la creme of chili. Whenever I have chili other then at the Beachead, I always compare it to the Beachead...and nothing has surpassed this. Chili and cheese! Phenomenal!
Pros: Chili, Burgers
Cons: Pasta Dishes like Ragu Sauce and Overpriced
