The hostess at our hotel recommended this place. I had said after traveling 11 1/2 hours from FL we needed a nice steak/seafood restaurant and have a cocktail. She gave us a coupon for Crechale's ... not an easy place to find and we nearly drove by it. We saw two children chasing each other out of the front door, and the general appearance was not welcoming. But always keep an open mind, as we say. We stepped into a place from the 1950s with music from even before that, which is OK. Since we were in a very small diner-type restaurant, we expected moderate pricing. By the way, there is NO cocktail lounge or bar. We were seated promptly (just a few tables were occupied), and then we opened the menu. When we saw those prices, we were both in sticker shock. Over $32.00 for prime rib??? Over $17.00 for chicken livers? I think spaghetti and meatballs were around $17.00. Our server was friendly, and I think she has heard other customers having a hard time breathing after reading those prices. Onion rings were over $9.00!! Well, I ordered a vodka martini straight up, and it came in a small water glass (think it was around $7.00). My husband ordered frog legs (over $23.00, I believe) which were nicely prepared but WAY overpriced. And I did have fried chicken livers for $17.95 with small and dull iceberg lettuce salad and small baked potato. The bleu cheese dressing was good. Our server told us the place has been in business since the mid 1950s, which is amazing considering those prices and the average preparation. It's a trip we will never forget.
