I'm surprised that no one has commented yet.
I finally went to Commodore this evening for a drink and some food. It's been on my list since the buzz got started. Overall, it's fine...not a destination but a solid option in the area.
Some highs: 2 for 1 beers at happy hour. Had 2 anchor steams for $5...not a bad way to start. As for food, the 'adult cheese' is gluttonously delicious. Loads of bechamel sauce, perfectly goo-y sandwich...$6...a winner. The mixed tomato salad was great. $6 for a big bowl of various farm fresh tomatoes and some type of cheddar cheese.
The loser of the bunch was the fried chicken. $10 for 3 large pieces and 3 smallish biscuits. The biscuits were chewy but good. The chicken was underseasoned and pretty oil-y. I don't mind oil-y if the seasoning was there but it was rather bland. id skip that.
Bartender was very friendly, a bit dark for 630pm but overall, a decent meal.
