Re: “Dean’s Seafood Grill & Bar

Absolutely delicious! The oysters and scallops are fantastic, not to mention, the mac and cheese and white chocolate bread pudding. It was all great! Our waiter was friendly and knowledgable about all the dishes on the menu and the fresh selections of the day. He offered great recommendations and informed us that all of their seafood was no more than 48 hours old.

Re: “Napper Tandy's

I am part outraged and embarrassed for Napper Tandy's. I have heard of this place forever, supposedly one of the MUST Go places if ever in Raleigh's Glenwood Ave Restaurant Row. So yesterday while at an event in the area, my wife and I went to 'da Nappers. I expected an unforgettable experience, and I got one I did not expect.
We made our way downstairs to the Pub. Nothing exceptional except the place was wall to wall tv's (not a bad thing) with loads of different sports events on.
But then it was time to order. My wife got an Irish Whiskey on the rocks, and it came out timely... in nothing but a plastic 8 oz cup... and cost $7.50!
Drinks aside, I decided to order the Fish -n- Chips, my wife went with the Shepards Pie and I was curious and got the Bangers and Mash to take home
My fish was more burnt breading than fish, and forget about cocktail sauce.... you only get tartar as they dont even have cocktail sauce.
The fries... what a joke! Stale, undercooked... definitely fresh out of the freezer. All this for like $12?!
My wife's Sheppards pie was more mashed potatoes than meat and the mashed potatoes tasted watery and no salt, pepper, butter, nothing!. I am certain the mashed potatoes were fresh because it had a chunk of undercooked potato in it. GROSS. This ran I think $13. You gotta be kiddin me!
Then there was the bangers & mash. Mashed potatoes must have come from the same batch.... watery and not a stitch of seasoning to it.. The bangers, what an effing joke. Little more than cocktail weenies.
Obviously this is a pub and they do not concentrate a lot on food. They seem to want to focus more on frozen food fastly made than actually good food reasonably priced.

Napper Tandy's 'repuketation' will be forever in my mind. Those that go to Napper Tandy's, dont go for the food. Go for the sports pub, go for the atmosphere, go for the booze. But stay away from the food.

Oh, Durham. Ohhhh, Lilly's!

I want you to be the best spot in town but every time I try, I am disappointed. It seems like no one really cares.
The pizza is great. The ceasar salad was a soggy mess of lettuce.
The service was horrible. How many times do people have to write that the service was horrible.
I watched the bartender blow his nose (in plain sight of the handwash sink and of customers), drop the paper towel into the trash, then wipe his nose with his hand and then serve me my food. The sink is right there, wash your hands. Please.
Please.
Saved. Thanks!

Re: “Mosaic Wine Lounge

The best venue for house music in the Triangle period! Mosaic is a Lounge that transforms into mini club featuring the best house DJs, local, national and worldwide. With an extensive wine menu, indoor and outdoor hookahs, a fantastic patio and great location in Raleigh, this is the place to go when you are missing the NYC/Chicago/Miami vibe.

Re: “Coffee Haven

The first thing to know about Coffee Haven is that it has a completely unassuming exterior -- in fact, completely generic. You can drive or walk by it dozens of times without noticing it. If you happen to notice it, you probably won't think, "That looks like an interesting place, I think I'll try it out." But in fact, it's a hidden gem. Once you step inside, you realize you've discovered something not many other folks know about.

In my opinion, Coffee Shop serves the best coffee on Hillsborough Street and even when compared to cafes downtown. They also serve fresh-made breakfast and lunch. This combination of good food, good coffee and lack of pretentiousness brings Coffee Haven to the top of my list for cafes in Raleigh.

It's also quiet. I set up my professional lunch meetings at Coffee Haven. Of course, there's WiFi. There's offstreet parking. And did I mention freshly made food?

Coffee Haven is located in a building that houses three businesses and which has a 1970's-ish Pizza-Hut style roof. It shares the building with an old-school barber shop and a shoe store. The signage is very, very generic. My first impression from the street view was that it was the kind of place that served Folgers and truck-stop food. The contrast between what you expect and what you discover is part of Coffee Haven's charm.

There are plenty of coffee shops to choose from in Raleigh and each is suited to different types of customers. Coffee Haven is great for grad students, working professionals and anyone who prefers the taste of coffee over the need to be seen as hip. It's not a place designed for undergrads who want to camp out for hours doing homework in overstuffed living room chairs.

My preference is for quieter, non-chain shops with good food. When I think about the many cafes I go to around NC State and even downtown Raleigh, my preference is Coffee Haven.

Re: “The Scrap Exchange

I love visiting the Scrap Exchange. I started going there when they were still at North Gate. They have tons of great treasures.

Re: “Thai Cafe

Re: “Hard Knocks

This just seems wrong. So many people are actually dying and being terrorized because of war. Treating it like a game and profiting from it doesn't seem like a good way to support kids with deployed parents (and they are not 'Lil Troops!' they are kids. ) Others are volunteering their time and money to encourage families not to buy war toys and turn our culture from a culture of violence. Hard Knocks seems to be exploiting peoples natural sympathy for military families (and perhaps guilt for failing to prevent them from being deployed needlessly) for their own promotion and profit. Of course the real war profiteers and play war profiteers have a symbiotic relationship. This sugarcoating of war helps perpetuate violence and is NOT in the redemptive spirit of the holidays! Military families would be better served by our questioning this superficial exploitation.

Re: “Roberts at The Franklin Hotel

The music schedule at Roberts is different for this month. Jim Crisp only played this past Wednesday and will unfortunatly not be playing the rest of the month due to a holiday party, basketball, and then christmas all falling on Wednesdays. Brevan Hampden & Friends have not played here for some time. On Friday the 13th and 20th we will feature JT Parrothead (Acoustic Guitar and Singing) and on Saturday the 14th we will feature Alex Thompson (Solo Piano)

Downtown Durham has been missing soul food in the heart of Parrish St for a while. Places have come and gone, but I really hope this place stays. delicious . sweet, friendly Durham style service with a smile, and southern comfort food. the night we went, slow jams were right on time, too.
