I don’t normally review food from chain restaurants, but my dining companion wanted Fish n Chips and we decided to try “the new place” which turned out to be our new Captain Georges in Cornwall.
It felt odd being in what had been a lovely and colorful Mexican restaurant. The new decor is open with a mix of seats and booths.
We were sat at a table, but sadly there was a draft or cooling vent that pummeled us with a steady stream of cold air that actually lifted the napkins off of the table.
The folks next to us shared that they’d moved, which is what we did, and lo and behold another couple was seated in our place only to move as well. Not sure why people kept being seated at the table when clearly there are issues with it?
There are no surprises on the menu of Captain Georges. It’s a traditional mix of fried fish offerings.
My companion tried the haddock and I went with my fave, the Halibut.
The good news is that Captain George’s uses fresh cut fries, but the single sliver of lemon and miserly tiny cup of tartar sauce seemed conflictive especially considering that this isn’t a discount fish joint. (my two piece plate was $15.75 before tax and tip) Likewise, the malt vinegar had to be requested.
Our server was friendly and always willing to bring more tartar sauce and bring over the malt vinegar, but she was also trying to up sell constantly too.
Appetizer offerings were minimal and a bit pricey. Our dinner for two with tax and tip were $35.00
Cornwall loves its fish n chips with both Joey’s Seafood and Ye Olde Fish n Chips being stalwarts.
Sadly Captain George’s would be my third pick of the three next time I get a craving.
