Stopped in for eggs benedict. There was no problem switching out bacon for ham. Service was good and food arrived in pretty good time.
The restaurant plays up the fact that a chef created the menu to incorporate locally grown nutritious foods. My dish arrived with no garnish or fruit of any kind, though it came with fried potatoes. Was disappointed with the presentation. Also thought the Hollandaise was more mayo than normal, but this is the first time I had benedict here.
Will return, but found this breakfast choice nothing special. Coffee, eggs and tip came to $22. That is a bit much for a couple of eggs on english muffins.

IHOP

Reviewed By Joshua T

It was still a decently busy IHOP for the hour I was there but it seemed like the food was moving quickly. My steak sandwich was poorly constructed and the steak had little flavor. Also, there was like a center part of the onion in my sandwich. Very unappetizing. Waitress did okay. Glass was empty once and they gave me a new glass and straw for each refill. Wasteful.

Franklin's Restaurant

Reviewed By momof4inmd - Salisbury, Maryland

I had mixed feelings on my review for this local restaurant. On one hand I can see where it is popular but on the other our visit was less than amazing. We visited on a Sunday right at lunchtime. We only had to wait about 5-10 minutes for a table of 4. The paid parking lot is free on Sundays so that was nice. My hubby was impressed with their beer selection. The onion rings are huge and sprinkled with ole bay seasoning. I would probably recommend staying away from anything breaded and fried on the menu. The onion rings and the fish and chips just have way too much breading. I ordered a bun less burger with a side of kale and chard. It was tasty and I liked the spicy mayo on top. My daughter ordered the jambalaya. The portion size was extremely small. My husband ordered the bean burger which he said was good but did appear to be dry. Lastly, don’t order the homemade root beer. Really not good at all. For 4 of us our bill was $80 which is a little high in my opinion for what we received. Maybe we just ordered the wrong items or hit them on an off day. Check out the cute attached country store. Tons of unique items and gifts. Wine, beer and snacks are sold there too.

This was possibly the worst service I have ever received at a Starbucks. The priority was clearly to get the drive-thru customers serviced first. I had several people in line AFTER me get their drinks first. When I asked for my hot chocolate, one barista just started to steam my milk (left the wand in there) and walked away! When I asked again another barista ROLLED her eyes at me and looked MAD at ME! A simple hot chocolate with a handful of people in line took nearly 15 minutes.

I had been there a few times prior to the incident described above, the service was ok, not particularly memorable. The restroom were clean though.

I am a Starbucks addict and "Gold Member" and I was turned-off to Starbucks for a few weeks after that.

Sardi's Pollo a la Brasa

Reviewed By Samet D - Urgup, Turkey

The price that we paid was very similar to something we would pay at any fast-food restaurant. I liked the chicken and found their French fries delicious. The cleanliness was also successful, I accidentally ordered the wrong side and even after I got the plate, I apologized and told them that I accidentally ordered wrong side.

They professionally said no problem sir and quickly gave me an additional side that I requested. Simply my feedback for them is positive.

We had taken a friend of my wife to this restaurant for her birthday shortly after it opened. This time she joined us to celebrate my wife's birthday. What a difference two years makes.

The restaurant is very successful; we could not get a reservation from 6-9:15 on a Saturday. The last time we went at six and it was not very crowded. It was crowded, but there were sears open this time. There is a bar.

The drinks were very good and the food was as we remembered it from before. However, there have been some issues in the scale up, of which I mention two.

It is restaurant policy that there are no substitutions of vegetables. The chef has decided that certain vegetables and entrees go together, and if you do not like that vegetable (or even if you are allergic to it), you can get a different vegetable. My wife had to change her desired entree..

The wait times for food to arrive had increased dramatically. The wait for the salad was so long that shortly after we started eating our salad, the waiter informed us that the entrees were ready. We chose to finish our salads, which meant a little more time on the warming trays for our food and it showed.

Finally, we had an endless wait for our desserts, which amounted to two ice cream cookies.

After our first visit, my wife insisted on complimenting the chef; after his visit, she said never again.

Mid-Atlantic Seafood

Reviewed By Crisc03 - Riverdale

This restaurant has been in the neighborhood for years. It recently went under new management with a whole overhaul of the restaurant. And now has a wonderful seating area and an overall Beautiful look. They have a great lunch special that comes with a canned soda. The lunch special is anywhere between six and $8. I recommend getting the whiting dinner. They have something for everybody beef, pork, chicken, and of course seafood which is their specialty. I also love their sides they have just about everything you can think of macaroni and cheese, sweet potatoes, Fried rice, lo mein and much much more. They also have a wonderful desserts and seafood salad.

Busboys and Poets

Reviewed By LBH991 - Annapolis, Maryland

We love Busboys & Poet and have enjoyed many meals at this location. Recently we had dinner with 4 guests and both the service and food were off. We got off to a great start. The server took our order, the drinks were promptly delivered, and the appetizer (coconut tofu bites) was fantastic! Then came the entrees. Those of us with fries noticed 2 things - the temperature of the fries and change in flavor. Cold fries are not appetizing. And the usual flavor of a hint of cinnamon was absent. I waited for the server to have her address the fries issue. The fries here have always been stellar. Was it just an off night? But the server didn’t arrive. And those warm fries never appeared. Then people ran out of beverages and no one came to fill water glasses or ask about a refill. Finally, about 15 minutes later I left the table and saw who I thought was a floor manager near the kitchen window. She was sympathetic and said things would be corrected. But they weren’t. Eventually another staff member brought Water. And the server brought the check. Upon leaving the restaurant I passed another person who may have been the manager that evening. I mentioned the concerns I had to him. He didn’t seem particularly interested. We will return to Busboys & Poets on the hope that they were having on a waaay off night.

I'm a true carvel girl being from Long Island!!! I was thrilled to find this gem! Located in a strip mall with shoppers and the sub shop next door and a bojangles nearby too.
Love the soft serve with sprinkles! The place is clean with a few indoor and outdoor tables. Parking is plentiful since its in a strip mall.
