Courthouse seafood: report

Science Chick | Mar 31, 2008 08:57 AM

We stopped in on Sat. afternoon for a quick lunch, after hearing my positive reports on the boards.

I had the fish sandwich and my DC had the fish and chips. Both fish were outstanding. Crisp, light batter tightly clung to the fish, without a hint of greasiness. The sandwich was served on a french style roll that was very large and "fluffy", so I opted not to eat it....it would be better on a more traditional bun. Great homemade tartar sauce. The fries and onion rings were meh. The low note was the cole slaw, which was clearly shipped in from somewhere else. It had an odd pungent taste and was HORRIBLE. I returned it, asking if it was made on the premises. My suspicions were confirmed, as I was told it was not. I told the counter girl that it was dreadful and she said "I love it". She asked the owner if I could get a refund and they begrudgingly gave me back my $1. She said that their coleslaw was "an acquired taste". I'm sorry, maybe challenging cheeses or odd musky mushrooms might take time to grow accustomed to, but cole slaw should just be good, no excuses.

Anyway, we'll definitely return for the fish and seafood.......I'll just get a garden salad if I want something green on the side!
