Gold's in Westport

Can someone please explain to me the appeal of this place? We took Gramma here for lunch today. What a mistake! Do they even prepare anything there from scratch? We ordered the split pea soup - it was fine but could have been Tabachnik. We ordered a couple of pastrami sandwiches - little pieces of pastrami that were sort of browned over like it had been cut hours earlier, served on thin not-so-fresh rye. The potato knish tasted like it went straight from the freezer to the microwave. To Gold's credit, the cole slaw and pickles were delish, and Gramma's white fish was succulent. But the entire meal was served on paper plates with plastic utensils, and I had to drink my Dr. Brown's Black Cherry out of a dixie cup!!! What draws people to this place?
