Boiler House Sunday Brunch - disappointed

TPC | Mar 6, 2006 04:33 PM

Went to the Boiler House Sunday Brunch last weekend. The place looks great, the booths made from wood boxes are fun, and we had the comfy seating in the main level.

The salad bar was good, my favorite being lox, grilled chicken nuggets, caprese salad, and mussels (which were unusually good for a salad bar.) The hot entrees are disappointing for me, as I don't eat beer or pork, so I didn't have the sheppards pie, lasagna, sausages, bacon, or roast beef. Eggs Benedict were good, as well as the pasta primavera, but the French toast was only so-so. Dessert consisted of about 20 different pastries, plus pancakes & waffles. Some of the pastries are store bought, nothing really stood out. I liked the lemon mousse but my friend found it bland.

Complaints:
- a friend was in line for the omelette station. After waiting for the 2 persons ahead of him, another person butted in and took his turn. He wished the server had kept track of who's been waiting
- they also have seating upstairs. We witnessed an elderly gentlemen who had a bit of struggle getting up there with his plate of food. My advice is if you go and any member of your party has mobility issues, be sure to make a reservation in advance for the main level
- unfortunately both me and a friend felt very thirsty throughout the day after the brunch. This indicates to us that a lot of MSG was used. We did not have the same things (he is a big meat-eater) so the conclusion is the MSG was in everything. Based on this we would not be going back anytime soon.
