Just had lunch at the new Carambola Sports Bar and Grill
at the golf course. It was Great. All fresh made bar food... Burgers, chili dogs, sandwiches, salads, etc. Really fast service. Can't wait to try the Cincinnati style 5-way chili and homemade jalepeno poppers. Being run by Kenny who is back on island, and wife Heather. Prices very reasonable. Currently open 11-5 Tues- Sunday.

SRB - I love Yelp and when I first moved here last year I had the first reviews for STX on there.

Went back to Savant last week - 3rd time we've eaten there (we consider it an indulgence) - but we've really enjoyed it every time.

Thanks for the updates on Rowdy's and Off the Wall being closed.

I do want to try Salud's new Tapas menu - I am also not a huge fan of their entree's but their drinks and apps tend to keep me coming back.

Went to Tavern 1844 on Thursday night after I saw on their FB page that they had fresh seafood flown in that day - had a delicious Lobster plate BUT it took an HOUR to get my lobster and a burger - I was a little frustrated eating at 9:30, several people who ordered after us got their food before us which just added to the annoyance.

Cincinnati-style chili is a pox on the digestive tracts of Americans and should barely be classified as "food."

Terry,
Flat Iron grill is the old Vinnies. Next to Johnny Mangos at sunny isle. I didn't like Flat Iron grill, we had dinners not pizza. I have heard the pizza is good though.

Off The Wall will be open on Wednesday and it will also be bingo night.

We remember that day because it was the first (and only, actually) negative report on the mushrooms so far. And just so you know, we had a record breaking lunch that day, so there was a lot more than 10 people in there at that time. But we are still new and growing, so we look forward to seeing you again. Thank you for the feedback.

I love Skyline Chili (aka 'greek' style). Had a chili coney dog at the new carambola grill after church on Sunday. It was great and was only $2.50 !!! Best wishes to
Kenny & Heather.

Seini is back at the Golden Rail in Gallows Bay and she brought back her crew.
I had the Tuna steak with jalapeno cream sauce which came out a perfect medium rare with rice and veggies. It was delicious!
Wife had meatloaf and mashed taters with gravy. It was very good as well.

Careful, Neil--Your credentials as a restaurant reviewer are in serious question now 🙂

Columbus is the Mason-Dixon line for Skyline. One or two have breached it and made it to Cleveland, but the only people who eat there are transplants from the south!

How appropriate that the two of us are debating food.
(The only time I've ever met Bernie in person was out at Lori's (old) Deli.)

It's a well known fact that the northshore of Ohio is it's own world. Few from Cincinnati or Columbus would claim it.

Have Beef on Kummelwick sandwiches made it there from W. NY? That might change my opinion of the mistake on the lake.

Neil--I'm not a meat eater, so I don't know about the beef sandwich.

And as a foodie, you might be interested in this: http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/10255/1086557-46.stm

Problem is, I'd have to GO to Cleveland (hahaha, Ohioans are allowed to say this)

Just got back from another nice meal at the new Carambola Golf "Sports Bar & Grill"
The 5 way chili was very good.
Kids pronounced the hamburgers "tasty".
Their posted hours are 11 to 5 but they are staying open after 5 on many nights.

Looking forward to checking out the Carambola place when I'm back on island in a few months. Neil, how's their non-beef dishes--chicken and the like? I've always like the Carambola setting and am happy to hear they have some new dining options there.

hi
went to golden rail and had nachos 2 margaritas and 3 iced teas. bill came to about $31 with tip. margaritas $6 each. Teas 2.50 each. music was great. r & b connection. that guy can sing.
the service was pretty good. the food was good though i would liked to have seen more salsa and made fresh. the entertainment was GREAT. drinks were way too high. 2.50 for each ice tea was a bit much.

Haven't tried any chicken there but plan on working my way through the menu.

PM me when you get back on island and we'll "meat up" for lunch there. 😎

We were at Good Spirits for Fiesta Friday. They are always great. The brisket tamales were great. My wife likes the chicken tacos with soft corn tortillas. I think they have the best smoked meats on the island.

Please tell me a little more about Good Spirits. Is it a good choice for "ladies who lunch", with full service, or is it more of an order at the counter type of place?

Thanks,

Good Spirits is a BBQ place that is average and a Mexican that is the best on island. You go up to the counter to order your food and then sit down, they bring it out for you and clean up. They have full assortments of drinks and whatnot.

What do you consider a "really large" sandwich?

Had lunch with a couple of friends at Blue Water Grill today. Food and service were both excellent, but...I asked if the sandwiches came with a side, and the server said "no, but they are really large sandwiches".

Well, when they came out, they weren't all that large, in my opinion. They were french bread, I'd estimate 5 inches long, no more, for sure. I'm actually wondering if they took a foot long and cut it in thirds. I think we all got just half a sandwich.

They came with a side of coleslaw. So, they still don't quite have it together on what comes with what and how it's served. I was really hungry. I ate every bite and didn't get that full feeling.

This was my third visit. I ordered the "Thanksgiving Dinner' the first two times, and it was completely different the second time from how it was the first time. BOTH times it was different from how the server described it.

The food has all been good, but you can't count on getting what you think you're getting. I have to wonder if because we asked about sides, and we were 3 middle aged women, they thought we would prefer a smaller sandwich and a side instead of the larger sandwich. Maybe...maybe not...Look forward to going back.

If you want a really BIG sandwich, try the "Ultimate Club Sandwich" at Turtles Deli.
