Re: “R.A. Long's Sawmill

I have enjoyed several wonderful meals at RA long's Sawmill. The food is excellent, everything is made from scratch using fresh locally grown produce. Service is warm and friendly...I am recognized and greeted as a returning customer each time I visit. The bar is intimate and warm...and the restaurant has a comfortable family friendly feel. I love to patronize independent restaurants as oppossed to chains, and continue to enjoy my expierences here. I most recently went to Easter Brunch at the Sawmill, and will likely go there for Mother's Day Brunch too...Just can't get enough of a great place like the Sawmill!

Re: “Chaz on the Plaza

The happy hour at the Raphael Lounge was a weekly affair. One happy hour at the Chaz and we are looking for a new place. Happy hour consist of $1 off wine and appetizers. We had the cheese plate for two and it was a joke. For $19 there was a small appetizer for one. No bread or crackers or mustard. Don't waste your time one this place. Music was ok but far too loud. We mentioned this to the waiter but nothing happened. It is a small area and the loud music made it impossible to talk.

Re: “YJ's Snack Bar

I have been dying to go there since seeing it on Food Network's, Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. I took a friend, who usually eats out at chain restaurants, to broaden her horizons. It was everything and more of what I was expecting. Artsie and non-pretentious. The decor was real and true and the service was wonderful and refreshing. The food tasted so fresh and delicious I was sad when we ate it all. My friend absolutely loved it and she asked when can I take her back. We will definitely be going back very soon!

Re: “R.A. Long's Sawmill

This restaurant has a great atmosphere but the food and service leave much to be desired. I have eaten here twice with different levels of service ranging from good to horrible. The food has never been good. I have had to send my entree back both times I was there. The tuna was a horrible cut and was inedible. The KC strip was served rare instead of medium well and was very balnd as if there was no seasoning what-so-ever. We did not recieve our appetizer and other people at our table did not recieve their side dishes. The menu is limited and overpriced.

Re: “Avenues Bistro

Our party had a wonderful lunch and the service was great! The only minor disappointment was my ceaser salad, a tad too much dressing, soupy by the end of the meal. The restaurant decor is beautiful, a great addition to the neighborhood.Very family friendly - my 2-year old grandaughter and 3 week old granddaughter joined us and they were treated royally! Thanks for a very nice dining experience...I'll be back, there are so many entrees to choose from, want to try more.

Re: “Chubby's on Broadway

It was exactly what I expected. Typical diner food. The service was great, especially since we went right when the restaurant was starting to pick up for the day but the food wasn't really any different than any other diner food I'd had and it's kind of out of the way for me.

Re: “Blanc Burgers & Bottles

As a burger connessieur I must say, "I have yet to consume a burger as good as the one I had at Blanc on Friday night. Believe me, I've had my share of Midwestern beef patties; I grew up in Nebraska where beef, without fail, was the center-star of every other meal eaten. Anyway, now that I've disclosed my beef eating history, let's get back to back to the juicy stuff. Blanc is a gourmet burger venue which serves up specialty burgers, fries, onion rings, and also offers a few salads for the calorie-conscious individuals. It has a long list of bottled beers, sodas, and an extensive selection of wines. I've been to Blanc twice now; the first trip I went with two others on a Sunday afternoon, we all ended up ordering a different lunch combo. I steered clear from red meat the first round, and opted for the lentil curry burger and sweet potato fries. Oh boy-- Boca Burgers could go bankrupt if this patty went to to the supermarket. The pattie was bursting with assorted veggies, lentils, and the perfect amount of curry flavor. It was served with some exotic toppings, which I don't recall, and then piled on a locally produced whole-grain bun. The sweet potato fries were thinly cut, super crispy, and were generously seasoned. For those who who like to dip, you're in luck, all patties and fries are served with homemade ketchup, creamy Dijon mustard, and a chipotle aioli. My second experience with Blanc was on a Friday night, our party of 8 thought chances were slim to none of snagging a table at 7pm. We were right, and ended up waiting until 8:30 before we were seated at our white set of tables and chairs, hence the name Blanc. Tonight I had my heart set on the Au Poivre burger; this consisted of a 1/2 pound peppercorn and salt crusted beef patty seared to a perfect medium, and then adorned with peppercorn sauce, watercress greens, grilled onions, and set on top a brioche bun. Another lovely selection, I must admit. Besides these items other picks from the menu include: The Inside-out-Burger(stuffed with blue cheese and bacon--which I anticipate trying next), The Classic, Turkey, Mahi-Mahi, Buffalo, and the lethal Kobe patty. I don't have enough time to describe the goodness of these burgers, so you'll have to see for yourself what goes into them. I assure you, you won't be disappointed.

Re: “Blanc Burgers & Bottles

I went there for lunch with a friend it was really good! I had the spicy lentil burger with the butter leaf salad (It was sooooo delicious, the flavor was soooooo great!) and my friend had the turkey burger with a milkshake, she loved hers too! The owner came by several times to chat with us. He was very very nice. Our server was nice but as attentive and I'm thinking it may have been because they were quite busy at the time. She snipped at me once when I asked for the check but again, I think it may have been because they were busy. I would love to go back again it was a good value for everything you get.

Re: “Blanc Burgers & Bottles

Loved the food, our server Mandy was great. Totally relaxed. The drink and food selections were fantastic! My husband's kobe beef burger was actually cooked to the perfect temperature, and I loved my lentil burger and sweet potato frieds. Nice job, "Drop" boys!

Re: “Room 39

I highly recommend Room 39. The food and service are consistently excellent. It’s a charming small place, usually decorated with local art that is for sale (I’ve even bought a few pieces). The menu has its staples, but has as many items that change daily. My wife loves the coq au vin, short ribs and meatloaf. Since I am not down with meat, I get their very good veggie burger, or for breakfast, their excellent brioche French toast or tofu scramble (although I’d like the portion of this to be a bit bigger). Their soft drinks are in little bottles which is cute, but silly especially since there are no refills. So I usually just get wine, tea or some of their great coffee. We’ve never been let down here, and look forward to going each time.

Re: “Room 39

My wife and her pals went to Room 39 for one of their monthly outings. She usually brings back a sample for me to try and the menu (I collect them) so I can look it over. The menu changes daily (at the whim of the chef which is not all that bad!). This day there were 3 soups/ salads, 5 appetizers, and 7 (beef [kobe and ribeye], pork, fish, steak, seafood, risotto) entrees. My wife got the Barramundi. Isn't that the name for one of those furry fox like Rainforest animals that has a long tail? No. The Barramundi is a Australian fish which is considered one of the finest eating fish. It has a sweet mild flavor, delicate texture and is versatile for cooking. It is also healthly too because of its Omega 3 Fatty acid content. Barramundi was a pan seared entree with roasted potatoes (good) eggplant and oyster mushrooms (could not tell which was which) with a sherry - beet sauce (which my wife raved about). It was a thick chunk of fish the sample that I got, flavorful and yes sweet. Sorry but it reminded me of English "Fish and Chips " without the batter on the fish. She thought it tasted like trout but I did not think so. Her friends had scallop etc which they liked. My wife said the desserts they tried were huge. She brought me home a truffle. My wife liked it . She said the chef kept bringing thing out for them to try like the truffle. I thought wow one of those mushroom things (the fungi mushroom that pigs dig up in France and are used in fancy recipes). No same name but they are chocolate. I had heard about the name before. Round and very smooth chocolate flavor. Entrees ranged from $20 to $27 .

Re: “Yard House

Tons of taps. Well cared for taps at that. I've tried many at the Yard House and all have tasted fresh. Can't say that for every multi-tap. And heck, can't even say that for bars/restaurants that only have a few to care for. Food is excellent, but a tad on the pricey side. They have a terrific 1/2 price appetizer special on some nights.
