Had them come out to clean the chimney, they did a great job. I would use them again. They were on time, and very clean and thorough. Would recommend.
I want to love Elliott's Hardware...it's got everything I should love, locally owned, great selection. The problem is-they are always closed when I need something, it's not open on Sunday or past 8 (it used to be 7). When you go towards the end of the day, like most people who work a 9-5, they have reduced the staff by so much you cannot find anyone to help you. I am sure I will continue to go, but just wish they would cater to us 9-5 office workers who can't get there during the weekdays.
I have been here a couple times and have always had a problem with my order. The burgers are okay, but the service is not that great. It is cheap and quick without being a "fast food" place.
I actually prefer the deep dish pizza at Chicago Street. It's more buttery and crispier. Don't get me wrong...I still like Chicago's Finest, but the sauce is a little too chunky for me and the crust can sometimes be a bit soggy. That said, it's still one of the best deep dish places around.
It's 4am, you're hungry, you may have had a little too much to drink and it's getting to be so late it's early, where do you go: The Peppermill! This 24 hour neon happy restaurant is the answer to all your gastronomic worries (well, at 4 am on the strip). The decor may make your head spin... fake cherry trees illuminated by wild shades of flashing colored lights, u-shaped booths lined with cable lighting; it really has to be seen to be fully grasped. The menu is expansive and everybody will be satisfied. The Peppermill has everything from breakfast, lunch to dinner. The portions are enormous, but very good. If you didn't get enough to drink at the casino; you can head to the Fireside Lounge. It is located at the entrance of the restaurant. You can grab a martini or an exotic drink by the flaming pool! The Peppermill and Fireside Lounge are a true testament to how tacky everything was in the 80s, but I wouldn't want it any other way!
One of my favorite restaurants; this Russian gem is located in the rolling hills of Great Falls. When you walk in to the Serbian Crown you feel as if you had stepped back in time to Imperialist Russia. The walls are covered in beautiful paintings with baroque frames, painted trays and boxes, Faberge eggs and other bejeweled artifacts. The vodka selection is ridiculously large. The cuisine here is a blend of French and Russian. They have all the game you would expect, boar, rabbit and venison are staples on the menu. The chateaubriand is my favorite, the art of carving tableside is not lost here. The succulent tenderloin is served with sliced potatoes sauteed with creamy cheese and fresh herbs. Weekend nights provide live music and the service is always great. Bring your pocket book, you pay a price for such Russian luxury, but I guarantee - it's completely worth it!
My parents took me to Chez Francois when I was a child, and I remember being overwhelmed by the setting and intimidated by the menu. As an adult I appreciate the nostalgia and outstanding food at Chez Francois. This is a perfect place to cozy up with a date, a bottle of wine and some solid French fare. The menu is extensive, but the food delivers and the pleasant servers are happy to help you navigate through it. Make sure to start with the bouillabaisse, it is out of this world. They do meat best, and for a main course the le chateaubriand de l'auberge is hard to beat. Dessert is easy-go with the souffle. Be sure to make your reservation well in advance .
Eaten here many times and am never disappointed...though if you're looking for something inspired, this isn't the place. The meals are recognizable, but very good. The gnocchi is my favorite entree on the menu, although the parmigiana and mussels are good choices. Service is pretty good and the intimate atmosphere can make for a great date night. Recommended.
Coffee served in limoges with steamed milk, crispy baguettes with melted chocolate and marzipan, could it get any better? Patisserie Poupon is located in a charming old house in Georgetown. It's a small place, but it has a cute patio that makes a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee or a decadent dessert. They have a full menu and are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Trinidadian cooking at it's best! You'll hear an island beat in the background and some native patois, but people of every persuasion adore this place because it is just plain good. The curry shrimp is unimaginably delicious and the oxtail is glorious! This place is also famous for the roti, pick one-they are all good! There is a full bar with a fantastic assortment of island drinks and a great patio. Stay here long enough and you may just want to limbo.
