Screen Door (dfw): great idea that falls down

ssh | Nov 11, 2008 07:41 PM

Great concept: upscale home cookin with a twist. Too bad the presentation sucks. The menu looks great. Many old time favorites like fried chicken, fried green tomatoes, etc. But "looks great" is a long way from "tastes great" (or good for that matter.) Service was horrid, from being seated in between a table of 12 and 2 tables of 6 despite the other 1/2 of the palce being mostly empty, to having the waitress disappear. The bread was dry and was only offered after we asked for some after seeing other tables with it.

1 soup, 1 appitizer, 1 fried chicken, and 1 dessert was 80 bucks. The portions were small, in part because the chicken was boney and had a lot of fat. I left hungry and wont be going back.
