Dewey's in Lakeville

Over the weekend I had dinner at Dewey's in Lakeville which is on the way to the Cape off of exit 4 or 5 (I can't remember which one).

The restaurant's atmosphere was diner-like but without a counter to sit at- seating was at a booth or table. The bar area is in a separate room off the hostess station. The menu is eclectic, generous, and covers entrees such as steak, lobster, chicken parmegian, and homemade pizza to name few. They also offered a nice selection of tasty looking desserts that included peanut butter pie, carrot cake, and pecan pie; and free refills on soda.

For dinner, I had a steak with baked potato and my choice of vegetable and soup or salad.Unfortunately, the vegetable choices for my meal were on the nasty side: cauliflower, pickled beets, etc. -- I can't remember the other choices but for me the cauliflower was the lesser of the evils. Fortunately it came in au gratin form with a flaky breadcrumb topping and that made it palatable. I passed on dessert this time.

The service was just o.k. Our waiter had to run back to the kitchen several times to get an answer on what was in a particular entree. I found this a bit odd considering it was an easy question and he had been with the place for about two years. He did make up for it by being very personable and interacting with us on a social level- talking and joking with us. Another error was the kitchen messing up and we got horseradish sauce for our baked potato instead of the sour cream that was supposed to come with the order.

Overall, I give Dewey's a score of 3 out of five points.
[0= Terrible | 1= Poor | 2= Fair | 3= Average | 4= Very Good | 5= Excellent]
