Sycamore Review - Bethel, CT

HunterJay | Apr 14, 200810:07 AM

So I took the family down to the Sycamore this weekend. Even though I’ve been there before it’s only been for the cruise nights and not the food, but I was craving something so I figured what the heck. I know they’re known for two things: their hamburgers (thin “French” style) and the fact that they’re an authentic oldies place (not a “new” place trying to be old). Here’s the rundown of our order:
Me: one cheeseburger, one onion burger, one Sycamore dog (hot dog with a slice of bacon, sauerkraut, relish, & mustard). The burgers were really good. They’re very thin but they’re not chewy or burnt, done perfectly. I would definitely get them again. The hot dog was ehh. The bacon wasn’t crispy or hot enough – I mean I wasn’t not going to eat it but I’d rather have another burger.
Wifey: Turkey club – it was OK. Again the bacon wasn’t crispy enough, but she ate it.
Daughter: Fish sandwich – it was OK. It was real unprocessed fish (unlike McD’s), but seemed a little greasy. I finished it.
We shared a basket of curly fries - a little burnt, but we had no problem finishing them.
Daughter and I had root beer (their own recipe) which was served in frosty mugs – this was pretty good, just wish the mugs were bigger.
We sat at the counter and had a pretty good time (sat there by choice as daughter wanted to sit on the stools). The staff was friendly throughout our visit.
Overall - I would definitely go back for the food. I would stick to the burgers and root beer as I know they’re winners – though I may try something else to supplement this. Tab was $28 for the 3 of us, not including tip (prices very reasonable).
