Made the mistake of finally taking my wife here the other night. Had not been in many years and on a whim we went. I can't remember if anyone included them in the recent "Dive Bars" thread, but they should have been...or maybe a whole new catagory..."Dive Restaurants & Bars".

The food was edible, just. The halibut special for me, with some of the most acidic and lemony tasting tomato sauce with capers it has ever been my displeasure to find on a plate. My wife had the veal chop, which was better. I had forgotten to warn her about the scalloped potatoes containing bananas, so when she had her first taste it was an immediate switch to a baked potato. I had a Sierra Nevada beer, which seemed a little watered down to me, the soup was definitely watery and the check came to $48, plus tip. The booth seat was dirty and that is the final visit for me. Rand needs to go ahead and build there as soon as possible.
