Our family went to Jasper's yesterday for lunch. Wow where do I start. I have heard for years how great this place is and for some reason have just never gone. We were seated quickly and the waiter very professional took our drink order. We just ordered tea and coffee that arrived quickly. We then ordered the famous maytag blue potato chips. What a huge dissappointment. They arrived cold soggy and way over cooked. So for the meal we ordered my daughter the mac and cheese. This is not mac and cheese, this is a pasta dish with smoked ham pasta pearl onions (whole) and smoked Gouda. It was ok but we were so underwhelmed after hearing all the raves about this dish. My daughter by the way took two bites and would,t eat anymore.I ordered the side dish of wilted spinach and the warm potato salad. I was still trying to get that potato fix, well the warm potato salad is the same dish as the maytag potato chips. The only difference is the potato's are cubes and probably roasted. Again almost burned and tasted so bad we couldn,t eat them. When we mentioned this to the waiter he suggested that we try the broccoli and cauliflower the next time we come in. The Spinach was good garnished with fried shallots the potato salad also garnished with fried onion rings. My husband had the French dip. This was nothing special, also garnished with fried onion rings. Nothing even looked appealing. Did I mention that it took 1/2 hour before our potato chips arrived and also an additional 45 min. after that our main order arrived. The place was not busy just very slow. We did order dessert as the food was so bad my daughter and I felt like we hadn't had lunch. I had the cream burlee which was ok but much more like a flan than a cream burlee, and my daughter had the ice cream sandwich this was really good. The bill came to $ 80.00 plus tip. Over all this was a terrible dining experience way over priced and the potato dishes were so bad we couldn't even eat them. Was this just a bad day at jasper's or should we try it again?
