I like the Mahi fish and chips at No Bones. I don't care much for the Flying Fish fish and chips, they are a little too fishy tasting.

Rotorhead - when you are at No Bones next getting the mahi fish n chips ask if the mahi is local. No Bones is using frozen Mahi. I always ask and was disappointed when i got that answer. I guess the frozen stuff is cheaper than the locally caught. It might still be good, but i prefer the local stuff to the frozen stuff. Rum runners is grease, but they get their fish from Captain Carl. TRW - does Paradise use local or frozen fish for the fish n chips? If it is local I'll come and try it on Friday.

Thanks

well in all honesty it comes from merchants,we go through so much fish at work we need a steady supply,we get the big sides and the cooks cut it up,i've eaten it fresh and frozen and when you're putting a beer batter on it and deep frying it,it all tends to taste the same,the only time prefer fresh fish is if i'm going to be eating it raw and thats not something you'd do with mahi anyway

We are going to RumRunners tomorrow night. Any good suggestions from the menu? They did a great fried shrimp for a Chamber party a few month ago, so I ordered it for lunch one day, and it was just the usual highly breaded, fast food stuff. I know...it's a casual meal, not a big deal, but if someone has a suggestion, I'm all ears.

We took friends to Rowdy Joes Thursday evening for dinner. It was great!!
My wife said the fish tacos were the best she ever had. My Cubano sandwitch was very good, and my friends loved their turkey pot pie.
Very large helpings. Split an order or don't eat it all to save room for the homemade icecream!!
They said they are closing for the month of Sept.
I highly recommend the place!(tu)

Quick review - dinner at the Galleon last night. Lamb chop appetizer, osso bucco main course with parmesan risotto, and chcolate fondant dessert. Typical Galleon - horrid waitstaff - 8 of us showed up instead of seven - the place is empty, and the waiter goes - what...there are eight of you? He seemed utterly flummoxed. Someone at the table suggested he might bring over another table and chairs since the place was empty. He finally thought that was a good idea. Lamb chops were ok - too much sauce and slightly overdone. Osso bucco was ok - not as tender as it should have been - a bit dry. Risotto a disaster - risotto should be creamy - this was more like sticky rice with some cheese thrown in. Dessert was excellent - had a hint of mint in the fondant. So per usual, I'm disappointed but it was about what i expected. Overpriced, not the greatest. I'm sorry to say that Frank was in the kitchen - i expected much better since he we cooking that night. Oh well. My wife's chicken cordon blue looked good and she said it was good - i did not try it. Wine list the usual with the usual restaurant markup. The chairs are the same uncomfotable chairs they have had for years. When will they fix those? A different waiter managed to dump a whole bucket of cold water from the champage bucket behind four of us from one side of the table with enough to splash four of us. So we all had to get up and move in the middle of dessert so they could mop the floor and get some of us dried off. Thank God this abortion of a meal was not on my tab. We still had a good time as the company at the table was wonderful. I can only imagine what dinner must be like when they have a fuller house.

Juanita, it's been a little while, but I usually order:

short ribs done in a nice sauce that includes Guinness Stout, or

salad: either the lobster salad, which has plenty of meat if you like lobster, or the salad tropic (I think that's what it's called). Nice candied walnuts, maybe citrus and I think cranberries. Either one is huge, for a decent price.

It's been a while, so let me know how goes.

Rumrunners- lobster quesidilla is strangely very good, I second salad tropique (mangos, gongozla, candied walnuts), with dinner you will have a lot more options then lunch. I'm more of a lunch girl because I like their salads. They have a pretty decent cobb as well. I still will usually get the tuna tacos for dinner. I know one of my friends swears by the scallops in pesto (think its scallops) she always gets it and loves it. I've always enjoyed the seafood there except for the fish and chips.

Really enjoyed Rumrunners. There were 4 of us. We had calamari and lobstger dip apps, a surf and turf (steak and lobster), shrimp alfredo, pork loin and scallops encrusted with macheago cheese. ALL were excellent, with good service. Including a few PainKillers, Rum&Cokes and a bottle of wine, the bill was $210, including a generous tip. Went to Zebos for after dinner. Hubbies played pool for a while. It was pleasant. Spent almost as much on drinks as we did on dinner at RR's.

Wanted to try the ribs at RR, but they were about 45 minutes short of being ready. Next time!!

Had dinner at Dashi a few nights ago. I always get the ponzu beef w wasabi mashers (I'm allergic to seafood) and my gf goes nuts over sushi. Edamame was hot and salty, the sushi looked good, my steak was perfect, and the Kirin was ice cold. I like the outside dining area and the peanut butter pie to go was the icing on the cake.

Quick tophat review -

Had dinner with friends at the Tophat Bar last night. Salad with iceburgh lettuce, asparagus, egg, tomatoe, artichoke, olives and house vinagrette - would have been better with better salad greens instead of iceburgh lettuce but the other toppings were good. Homemade pork sausage with fried potatoes and red cabbage - excellent. Table mates had cream of tomatoe soup with roatsted red pepper and basil - was excellent - homemade duck liver pate - also excellent (i stole some of each) Miss of the night was the lamb chop appetizer not good - overcooked. Other diners had Frickadeller which they said was great.. Desserts were homemade chocolate rum cake - very good and mud pie. The Mud Pie was good but could have been better - too hard in consistency but flavorful.

Cheers -

Great evening at Elizabeth's, @ H2O, for crab legs tonight. Good drinks, good food (lots of it), good service! However, the only downside came at the end, as it often does..Tthe check included a gratuity of 18% for a party of 4. I never looked at a menu because I knew what I wanted ( we all knew), so can't tell you if it was there or not, but we all know it's usually on a party of 6, or more. Glad the hubbies caught it. They were about to leave 30% (would have been +/- 58% tip). Server never mentioned it when he presented the check (??). Won't keep us away, the crab legs are great, just one of those things, ya know..........

I am a newly registered person on this forum but I agree with trw on autograt for locals., I know a person who works at a place that only autograts parties of 6 or more and when the number is less than 6, it's up to the customer to decide the tip. If it happens to be locals, too many times there is no tip at all for what customer claimed was a good meal/service. To me that is rude and totally disrespectful.

I was at a boardwalk restaurant a couple of years ago. I overheard a man sitting at the next table tell his date (after she asked him, "aren't you leaving a tip"), "I ain't paying no white person to wait on me, he should do it for free". Sad statement and so enlightening on why things don't change here.
