but you do mention that a chain is mentioned in a thread.
We know your stance on chains and that you’re not happy about which topics are put in the FF Forum.
I would suggest to ALL those who are unhappy about the FF Forum rules and/or poilicy, to get in an email discussion with the admins, instead of clogging up the threads with "look! another chain was mentioned."
It’s beginning to kill, or at least ruin the continuity of, threads.
saps, I’m glad you got to at least go to G&M for some local food.
I hope the rest of your trip went well too.
I went to a microbrew pub in Fells Point called DuClaw for lunch on Saturday.
Beer: Excellent. On the hoppy side for each flavor, but that’s usual for mid-atlantic microbrew pubs (i.e. Capitol City Brewing).
Food: overall, not good. The sandwiches were ok, but the tuna dish and the pasta were not good. The spices on the tuna did not blend well with the fish which was overcooked. The pasta, was clumpy.
The Club sandwich was good, but the bread slices were so thick, it was better to take the middle piece of bread out.
Service: SLOWWWWWWW. The waitress left to get the silverware which we hadn’t yet gotten when the food arrived, and it took nearly five minutes for her to return. Yet, we saw her ringing out other customers and delivering food to others. It was as if she wanted to take fewer trips from her station to the tables, so she’d do three things at once. Waiting at the register, which was apparently running slow, for someone’s bill to print out, while she held two dishes in the other arm.
I understand doing more than one thing at once, but the register was slow enough, she could’ve delivered the other table’s food, our silverware and returned before the printer had printed out the third table’s bill.
It took ten minutes to get the check after asking for it (she was waiting for someone’s food to come out of the kitchen before taking her trip by our table) and it took another 10 mintes to get change. And she asked if I wanted change, which annoys me.
I would definately return but ONLY to sit at the bar and drink their beer -it is good beer. I would never return for food. Except maybe the spinach-crab dip, which was very good. Maybe the bartender would serve it faster than the waitstaff.
