big disappointment at char 4

went to char 4 with a lot of expectation. our party was particularly excited about the BLT, which has since been removed from the menu.

the bacon appetizer and the ham and cheese gave us a taste of the house-smoke meats, but they were nothing to write home about. beyond extra salt-and-smoke, these dishes were otherwise flavorless. the crab-soup was virtually inedible: thick and mealy, it tasted like someone had added bbq sauce to an otherwise poorly-made chowder.

while the restaurant boosts a great bourbon/whiskey selection the mixed drink that i sampled was more than juice than liquor, and i think i've had better cocktails served up at my local dive-bar for much less the price.

what's the deal?
