  • Stand In Line

    I persuaded Bob to come here one week because we had never been to Panera before. I thought the food was good, but the order takers were slow, and they didn't coordinate the order at all - various things were picked up at different places. After we ordered, Bob had to stand and wait for the food to come up. One of the things I ordered did not come...

  • Now Mexican was Northridge-Montaque...

    Changed hands and cuisine again. It is currently a Mexican Restaurant. This restaurant started out as a northern branch of a restaurant down at the southern end of St. Mary's County called Southridge. It is associated with a motel. They had Beef-Lamb-Poultry-Seafood and Sunday Brunch, and do catering. On Saturday night they have a local guy playing...

  • Not a Bistro

    The name of this restaurant is absolutely misleading as this is nothing like a Bistro (which I think of as French and intimate). This is a restaurant which does everything from Pizza to Sushi, including subs, Chinese food, seafood and Gyros, but has no atmosphere. I think most of their business is take-outHours: Hours:Mon - Thu 10:30 AM - 11:00 PM...

  • Large Salad Bar

    Bob has resisted going here - he doesn't like to go to a restaurant for pizza. When I finally did persuade him, it was a hot day, and the A/C inside couldn't keep up with the heat from the ovens. Also their menu said they had gelato, but the gelato machine was broken.You go up to the counter and order and they give you a number for your table. They...

  • One of two Mexican Restaurants in San...

    The restaurant always looks so crowded we've avoided going in. Today we got there before 5:45 on a Wednesday night, and there were empty tables. I suspect one of the attractions of this restaurant are the prices. We had a coupon - two of the numbered special dinners for $9.99. The Department of Tourism website says:"Southwestern and Tex Mex. Fun...

  • Steak or Sushi and Tempora

    We went out to dinner on Saturday (March 22, 2003) this week and we initially headed for the Mexican restaurant near here as I had a coupon. Then I discovered that people were knee deep in front of the restaurant and the coupon was only for M-Th. So we had a choice - Indian or Japanese. We picked Japanese. The restaurant has a suchi/sashimi bar in...

    We were going out for our weekly dinner out and I had a coupon, but the coupon was only good for Thursday, Friday and Saturday and this was Wednesday. So we drove over to Wildewood to see what was there, and saw the New York Buffet which for some reason I thought would be pizza. But it wasn't. It was Chinese. There are two other Chinese buffets in...

  • A passion for grilling

    We've watched this restaurant being built in the row along with Olive Garden and Cracker Barrel, so when we got back from our trip, my husband suggested we go here for our weekly dinner out. It was quite crowded for a Thursday night, and we had to wait about half an hour for a table (which we don't usually do). The service was reasonably good, but...

  • New Restuarant

    Whenever I have been to Cracker Barrel before, I have been disappointed in either the food or the service or both. I think this might be because I expect the food with folksy descriptions to be like the food I remember. I keep trying the chicken and dumplings and getting stogy pasta type things instead of a dumpling. Also I think most of the stuff...

  • American Cooking

    When we've been to Ruby Tuesday in the past it has been VERY noisy, and my husband has hesitated to go back. However, it came up to our weekly night out, and I had a coupon for Ruby Tuesday for up to $10 off. And it was early (before 6) and we thought it shouldn't be too crowded so we went.We were seated without waiting. I wanted to take a picture...

  • Weekly Dining Out

    When we are at home, we usually go out to dinner once a week. This was a custom I started when we were first married. Then it was usually Friday because we were both working and I went to market on Saturday so by Friday, I was tuckered out and out of food. This week we went to the local Applebee's. I don't think we have been to the local Applebee's...

  • Former Taste of India,Curry of India,...

    My husband enjoyed the Indian food we had in England, but when we have tried Indian food here, he just doesn't like it. So I doubt if we will ever eat here. I took the picture to finish up the roll after we went to the Monterey Restaurant which is just up the row from this and apparently the restaurant has changed hands and names since the time we...

  • New in 2011

    Bob thinks this is just a more expensive Burger King, but it does have something Burger King does not have, and that is alcoholic beverages for those who want them and people do not have to worry about their children being noisy. Store Hours: Sun-Thu: 11a-11p, Fri-Sat: 11a-Midnight I had a queasy stomach so I ordered hot tea which wasn't on the...

  • Boar's Head Meats

    I dropped my husband off for some medical tests at the Phillip Bean Center, and was supposed to pick him up at two. So I went out for lunch. As I was driving south on Route 235, I saw a sign advertising Ricks, so I tried it.Mon. - Thurs. 11 AM - 8 PM, Fri. & Sat. 11 AM - 9 PM. Order early by phone.Featuring pizza (medium 14" $9.95 + $1.25/topping),...

    They have a meeting room and we have had some famiy dinners here. They are very accommodating. We had my (Barb's) wedding rehersal dinner here, and we've also had a family dinner when we came before the Oyster Festival.My wedding was in December, and Jim's folks are from Florida - that's why the picture under the sign has everyone huddled from the...

  • Across from Wildewood

    Lenny's is one of our favorite places to eat. On the back of the menu it says: "In 1952 Ruby McMillan and Leonard S. Rebarchick established the Knotty Pine Restaurant. Originating as BarBQ sandwich shop in the family trandition, the Knotty Pine expanded its menus...The Knotty Pine..was renamed Lenny's in 1963..."After almost 30 years Lenny retired....

  • New in 2010

    This is a chain which we have not had down in St. Mary's County before this. It opened two weeks ago, so we went for dinner on a Thursday night. The place was packed, the parking lot was full to overflowing and the person who took our names and gave us the pager said that it would be a 50-55 minutes wait. It didn't take that long and service was...
