    Got better than water at home. I'll stick to that.

    Don't mind paying for good food... Don't like getting overcharged for it either.

Saphron was amazing and they should have been packed every single night of the week, but nope. The Applebee's was packed, and Outback was packed, and McDonald's had lines out the door, but Saphron sat alone with its wonderful low country cuisine night after night.

    If people have to leave the main road to go eat, they won't do it. I swear if Jerry's was one street over from Rt 4, he'd be gone by now.
    They actually have wings on the menu...gotta eat them at the bar though I get what you're saying though.

    I have to admit I was a little disappointed in the place that opened up where Café D artiste used to be. I was expeciting their menu to be more along the lines of this place.

    Most people don't.

    The burger is good, I hear. Only $13.

    Well, there ARE steaks that good, just not sirloin.

    Their prices do seem high - $9 for olives and bread? $11 for cheese and crackers? No. But you're also paying for the professional staff and the atmosphere, which has value. This looks like the sort of place that Monello would like to go to and I'd go along just because he does nice things for me all the time. I'm into the clam shacks these days.

    I'm always interested in how restaurant owners decide on prices. I look at some items and think, yeah, that's about right; then I look at others and figure they must have been smoking dope when they priced that one. I also never understand why they don't offer apps in several sizes, or make them smaller and cheaper - like a, you know, appetizer instead of a meal.

    But again, I'm not a fine dining person so what I think doesn't really matter.

    I've been there once and was a bit disappointed. I expected more variety on the menu.

    I've always associated overpriced "Fine Dining" to the more common term... Pretentious.

    The "Fine Dining" that I have participated in a few times, always involved "little food" and "big prices". I understand the whole presentation thing, but, if I order a dinner, I want an adult dinner with adult sized food.

    OK... The Grill on your deck doesn't count here.
