The beer is better than the food 10/21/2006

My wife and I went last night. The menu is basically bar food. Of what we had, the specialty burger with dusseldorf mustard was quite good. The onion straws that came with it was a portion a little too large and was too spicy with cayenne pepper. I don't mind spicy foods, but there wasn't anything mentioned about it on the menu. The calamari we had beforehand was barely adequate. They were a little too breaded. The dessrt for $7.95 was a HUGE piece of adequate chocolate cake. The cake at Gale St. Inn was much better. However, the highlight of the night was the beer. My wife and I were having a tough time deciding what to get. Then we saw that they have a sampler, where you can get 4 5oz glasses of your choice for only $6. I ordered 4 for my wife, that I thought she would like, then another 4 for me of ones I would like, including their lovely India Pale Ale, Autumn ale and cask-conditioned Autumn ale. The presentation of this was SUPER - including a placemat with 4 spaces for the samples, notated with the choices. It was actually reminiscent of the great "Beers of the British Isles" presentation at the English restaurant at Disney World. So, I'm glad we went, even if the food was fairly unforgettable, and I can recommend it. more
