DD is a repetitive business, but this place lacks consistency. Sometimes everything is perfect. Other times, it's way off.
I've had perfect black coffee, I've had black coffee that was undrinkably weak.
I've gotten a toasted bagel with chive cream cheese, I've gotten an untoasted one with barely a smear that was dry. (They're supposed to use the entire mini-tub).
Weekends seem to be more miss than hit. The staff is generally nice and there is a lot of parking. I'd give 2.5 stars if I could.
It's been around for years, and it's still as good as when it changed from being the Town & Country in the early 80s.
Recently renovated, the covered awning over the entrance is great, and the interior is looking much better.
The menu hasn't changed too much, but the food is consistantly good, the staff friendly and the portions ample. Good coffee!
I bought my car here years ago, the dealership was better then. Chrysler has gone through a rough patch, but I've been fortunate, having only had taken my car here twice, once for a warranted sensor replacement, once for a new belt. It doesn't matter what they say, it will always cost twice the estimate and take two days.
Great wine, great food. Usually busy, reservations are usually a good idea. It's a block or so past the Borders, so parking is hit or miss, and the place is always WARM.
But that aside, I can say I've never had a bad meal here. Pricey, but not outrageous for a once-in-awhile night out. Try the veal... whatever way you like it, theirs is among the best I've ever had.
Myself, three friends and our wives & girlfriends went here before our 15 year high school reunion. Everyone that ate the salad had mild food poisoning. I fared better than most as being late I only had half of my salad. We figured it out when someone took food home and at the salad the next day and got sick again!!
The place isn't cheap, but then neither is anything about Joe's: the meals are ample and well made. The staff is courteous, the bar is stocked with just about everything you'd want to ask for, and the coffee is excellent.
Yes, there is almost always a wait to get in, particularly on weekend evenings. But it's worth it, which is why people are there in the first place! And the line does move at a good clip.
The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because there isn't always enough parking and I've occasionally had an app or dessert forgotten by the waiter because they're so busy.
Everything you expect: pool table (coin operated), electronic dart boards, TVs, small bathrooms and domestic drafts being the usual drink of choice.
That said, the place is clean, the staff friendly, the food is good (it's bar food, but its prepared well!) and they do have live bands play there such as The Highland Rovers. There is a ton of parking. It gets very crowded on weekend nights, good atmosphere.
Roberto's is an oddity: I can't tell if it's a genuine three-star restaurant or a high end reception hall with bigger dreams.
I've been here about a half dozen times. The food is always good with ample portions, with the exception of the broiled scallops: they were rubbery and uneatable. On the other hand, I've had the Veal Portobello and it was excellent.
The bar area is nice and almost always has at least a little crowd. Good parking, clean and friendly staff. Never seen a wait during the week, and open late for the area.
I'd give them 3.5 stars if I could.
I was there for a reception in a private room (about 50 people) and it was very well organized with good food and staff. The men's room ran out of papertowels two hours in and was never restocked.
Went there for dinner and it was great once and terrible the other.
It does have lots of seating room and parking.
They have an exhaustive wine list, the food quality is top notch, and the staff is friendly and courteous. The bread and garlic butter are to die for. Slightly pricey for the area, but well worth it for what you get!
