One thing that has struck me on this board is that when talk turns to Lambertville, one of my favorite restaurants is usually unmentioned. It's my default, go-to place in Lambertville. I will grant that it is sometimes inconsistent (steak has been tough and apple crisp has been slightly burnt), with slow service, but generally I know I can find something satisfying there. I love the atmosphere, the prices are reasonable, and the service is unfailingly friendly. They also are very accommodating to large parties, whether you're having a sit-down dinner or just gathering at the bar. And I've had far more great nights there than not-great nights.
I stopped in today and had an excellent creamy tomato soup and one of the tastiest roast beef sandwiches I've ever had.
I mean it's definitely not haute cuisine, but I almost always come away satisfied and happy, with a generally pleasant experience. It's also the only place all my friends can generally agree on when we have to meet somewhere.
So I guess I'm curious what the strikes against it actually are.
