We had not tried the Barleypop under its new ownership until Friday evening and stopped for a fish fry.
My impressions were:
The place had been cleaned up and seemed more open and much less noisy.
If the number of people there at 5:45PM last Friday were an indication of the regular crowd, I will be surprised if the new owner is able to make this a going concern over the long pull.
The menu has several new items that look interesting.
The fish fry was delicious, was served quickly, and extra pieces were quickly offered. The wait staff was very good and very attentive without bothering.
Fox and Hounds Brunch…
We were invited to a birthday celebration for a longtime neighbor and friend yesterday and the scene was the Fox and Hounds in Hubertus. We had been there several times since it was re-opened under new ownership and were quite pleased with those visits.
We had not tried their brunch, however, and were quite interested in it. The experience was wonderful. There was a wide array of food, a desert table that almost made me forget to eat my meal first, and the service for this group of twenty was excellent. Everything was either hot or cold, as it was supposed to be, and all was very tasty.
We will certainly plan to go again.
Nardo’s continues to deliver top notch food, drinks and service. The menu is large, the choices almost mind-boggling and the service is excellent. The prices are, I think, quite reasonable for the amounts and quality of the food.
I enjoy an occasional serving of liver and onions…and Nardo’s has some of the best I have ever experienced. The liver is done to a “T”, the onions sautéed just right and the bacon is crisp.
Their Caesar salad is right up near the best I have eaten no matter where and no matter the cost.
We’re blessed with good choices for the occasional meal out.
