A friend just moved to WH and we met for dinner. She wanted to go to the Elbow Room and I agreed, against my better judgement.

I had thought I would be disappointed and I was right. the service was painfully slow, for 5:30 on a Tuesday. The server stood in the bar with our glasses of wine and chatted with the bartender about her husband, while we watched and listened.

My friend had a turkey burger which she said was OK. I had the Blackened grouper tacos. 2 flour tortillas each with 1 very small piece of fish and a huge pile of mango salsa. No side or even a garnish on the plate for $18.95. I left hungry and poor :)

I wonder how they survive in a town with so many great food options all around them.

I told my friend that next time dinner was on me at Grants.
