First off, I generally see the good over the bad and I have been to this establishment a few times over the last few months. Interestingly, of all the places I've reviewed, this is the first one that is walking distance from my house. Therefore, I struggle writing a somewhat dismal review. Here's my issue(s): (1) Just because its on the menu doesn't mean its available. A couple of visits ago, our server went through the list of items that was not available. In a joking fashion I said that it looks like we're having burgers and she laughed and said basically that's it. It continues, for months they have been listing restrictions - change the menus. (2) You can order pasta on one instance and receive a large helping, the next visit it may be half as much. I feel that depending on its popularity, you may, or may not, have to share your portion with other patrons. (3) I ordered the fish & chips Friday night specials a few times and liked it. On my last visit, the 2 pieces of fish looked like they were caught by Captain Highliner himself! To top it off, the wait staff said the owners decided to mix things up and provide 2 pieces of fish instead of one! However, the 1 piece actually tasted like fish. I swear if I went across the parking lot to the grocery store that they's be out of frozen fish in the cooler section - it was all bought by Slumdogs! I was with a colleague who said the same thing about their beer selection, that it is not as varied as it used to be.
I'm not one who criticizes a lot of establishments but in this case I feel that there is very little positive to commend the owners with. I get the feeling that the business is in a financial crunch and is looking for ways to nickel and dime its patrons to make it work. I also considered not reviewing but felt that people should be aware of spending their hard-earned cash at such places. The value is just not there, which is sad given the lack of options in the immediate area.
