My wife and I chose to have lunch while we were in the Danbury area on a weekday and we'd passed this restaurant like a million times so...we decided to give it a try. The restaurant appears welcoming enough and there's nice seating outside, but it was a hot, humid day so we opted to eat inside. The booth that we were seated at was next to a window and, frankly, it was not a clean window. In fact, the entire area didn't give the cleanest of appearances but it wasn't so bad that we wanted to ask to be seated somewhere else. All the booths looked the same. I had a good cold draft beer so in that department I was quite satisfied. The menu is pretty big and there are a good number of appealing dishes to chose from. (I should also point out that the menu is imposing in it appearance and physical feel, but it was genuinely dog-eared and even if it cost the proprietor a "pretty penny" it should have, long ago, been retired rather than present it to customers today. I ordered a lobster reuben and my wife ordered a turkey burger. Both looked good. When it came to my sandwich, it was ample...very ample and it did look good. But, I have to say that it didn't taste as good as it did look. Don't get me wrong, there was nothing wrong with it, but it just lacked any real taste. Now, that's hard to do that with a reuben but, alas, it left me flat. My wife said her turkey burger was tasty but clearly overcooked, in some areas, actually burned. She had the fried sweet potatoes as a side dish (which came...as a substitution for regular fries...with her turkey burger) and she said they tasted good but they weren't even close to hot. Of course there is the option of sending food back but she said since her food did taste all right it was okay and she'd rather not make an issue of it. That's an option that the individual diner has to make for themselves because it does remain that sending the food back to be reheated, for example, would be an option. The one saving grace of the lunch were my french fried potatoes. They were downright excellent and came as a very ample serving. All in all, the lunch was, to be totally honest, a bit disappointing, though not bad. So, I feel comfortable with saying this is an average restaurant and to be fair, it's been where it is for a very long time and they seem to be doing a vigorous business so maybe we just dined there on an off day.
