Ate the dinner meal at this restaurant, it was recommanded by the motel next door.
The waitress recommanded the twin ribeye We ordered this med rare with a salad and baked potato and ? German potato. The salads were good the rolls so so. When we were served the steaks (1/4 thick) they were smothered with over done onion and mushrooms which we were not expecting. They were well done and had no flavor. We wanted to let the waitress know but she never came back. Another waitress came and took the meals back to the kitchen. We had taken some bites with hope of a better flavor(also we hadn't eaten since breakfast.)

After some time our wàitress came to give us the bill and strangely asked if it was too rare. I repeated it was well done like leather. She smiled dropped the bill and walked away. No
one acknowledged the terrible meal we had been served. You would have thought the manager or cook would have said something. We were not asking for it to be taken off the bill but I'm sorry would have made a difference. But for $43 you would have expected better.
This waitress was strange she was more worried about father standing there than her customers.

Positive first: the waitress was very good. We ate without complaint, but won't be back probably. The over all presentation was 'cheap'. Tiny pieces of store bought bread, the pickle was cut in half, cheap margarine-not butter, small portions... My sandwich bread was soggy from touching the cut up pickle on the plate. Atmosphere needs updating.

I'm a Maritimer and have eaten haddock chowder all over the East Coast of Canada and the United States. The Wickachee has the best haddock chowder I've ever eaten - better than Legal Seafoods, better than Cappy's Chowder House. We were here for lunch, and then came back the next day for dinner.
