I've been going to the Far Western for literally decades. When the kids took over, they made some changes to the menu, but for the most part, the food was still good and the place had personality. I visited the new restaurant for the first time this past weekend, and I was so disappointed. The food is now 'OK'... there are better steakhouses in the area, and far better value to be had. The new space was a huge, empty, characterless room. While it can accommodate more customers, it gets noisy fast, service is slow and a little testy, and I didn't see any of the familiar friendly faces from the old restaurant in Guadeloupe. A smart person would move into that quirky, friendly old space, and open a good, basic, Santa Maria-style barbeque steak house. Old regulars like me would flock to it in droves. Sorry, Far Western, I understand progress, but I'll be going to that other place from now on.
