“OK chowder, yummy au jus, new flooring”

Ranked #5 of 5 Restaurants in Seal Rock

Reviewed 25 January 2014

The chowder was curdled, but had good clam flavor and wasn't ruined by a bunch of thickener. Generous portion of pink shrimp converted it to slumgullion. My wife had the french dip. The meat was tasty and seemed house-cooked, but a bit overdone. The au jus was delicious, house-made from roast juices or at least mostly so. Don't bother with the cheese bread--unless you like toast soaked in fat (oil? butter?). They have gotten rid of the old badly worn carpet, which is an improvement.

Loved the coziness and the service. We felt welcomed . Good size portions and breakfast was very good. They close at 3PM so get there early.

Though we have eaten here several times in the past - food is good and the carpet needs replacing - the slug-paced service on our last trip left us saying "not again" We put in our order when there was only one table of 4 ahead of us. We were given coffee and then we waited, and waited, and waited. Read through entire paper and still no food. Then, finally, the table of 4 was served. We looked at each other shaking our heads. With only one waitress and one cook you'd have thought the owner/manager just walking around would have stepped in to help. Nope. We paid for our coffee and left - still having not received our food order. Too bad, it once had potential.

Lousy service, lousy food. Got the order wrong - refused to rectify. Still charged us. Manager had a terrible attitude. Closed & locked diner door a half hour before closing time.
