“Portion size... Nice and Clean...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

Pasta is cheap. Why not over load the serving with it to make the customer happy? The fish and chips was great, again a portion size to satisfy you, but not really fill you, so you end up wanting and having room for dessert. A good thing or a bad thing? Dessert is another $6 on top. If you aren't a dessert person you may leave wanting a bit more food. The place is clean and bright and has a nice family atmosphere, the wait staff is great... very friendly. Just a bit pricey for the portions. Maybe better for lunch? We had pasta with sweet sausage (bought the extra meatball), fish and chips, chicken afredo with broccoli and a cup of clam chowder. Actually the Boston Cream Pie was quite good!

“Not worth it.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2012

Kept trying Ernie T's because location worked out so well for us. Last 3 visits very dissapointing both with quality of food and size of serving. Waitstaff continues to be charming and helpful but ambience from kitchen and bar seem to overwhelm this eating spot; putting diners concerns last. For example, arrived on a Friday night, hungry and ready to eat. Great looking specials on the board and several old favorites on menu. Seafood is featured and despite soggy, greasy taste of the fish and chips on a previous visit was ready to give another chance. Only problem was this: we could not hear anything but screaming heavy metal music from the bar and kitchen area from an area hard rock station. When the waitress asked us for our order, we mentioned our concern, asking if the music could be lowered. We heard the negative response from the bar, and when she returned, she told us as we heard the radio DJ loudly doing commercials that "it was just talk now", "the next song will probably be better" . Ya know-that's not good enough! Prices aren't that low at Ernie T's to treat customers that way. Over all, deterioration all around but I guess a matter of taste. Heres a place that can't decide if it's an Irish bar, a sports bar, an eating establishment or a dive. Right now to me, the latter is dominating. By the way, we left without ordering.

“Sometimes excellent....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

Baked fish came with vegetables cooked to perfection. Fried fish (cod) flaky and perfect but portions sometimes small. Chicken parm huge serving and really OK. meatballs and pasta pretty good. Worth trying again and again.
