  • This restaurant had been deteriorating for years, to the extent we'd stopped visiting. With the new management and ongoing renovations, we thought we'd try again. One perennial favorite was the homemade onion rings. After perusing the new menu, we asked if they still had "their" onion rings, and were assured they did.

    What was brought out was completely different; generic frozen onion rings, which we immediately refused. The waitress didn't even set them down, she simply disappeared, stating she wasn't sure she'd be allowed to take them off the check, but would ask. She never told us the response, just presented us with the full bill.

    When we spoke to the owner over this $3.49 item, we were told that since we'd ordered them, we'd have to pay for them, or he'd immediately call the police. He further stated we were "banned for life." Not necessary, sir - that attitude, plus the cold Reuben sandwich delivered along with the onion rings, wouldn't put me back in one of your restaurants at gunpoint.

  • Order: Reuben sandwich, Onion rings

  • The first rat to be smelled was the "Freedom Toast" on the menu. Apparently it's still "cool" to snub the French in not naming any food after them, or maybe the owner's jumped on the bandwagon a few years back and haven't had the time, money or inclination to change the menu since. Service was adequate, but seriously it's breakfast; fill coffee, drop the check and pretend my kid's the cutest you've ever seen and hope for 20% of a $13 check. The food was crap; I don't expect a 4" thick sirloin with my eggs but calling a 1/2" thick slab off cow a "NY Strip" is pretty creative while the eggs were runny with the steak and my daughter's "Eggs over medium" were dried yolks surrounded by greasy whites. The coffee was good and we'd go back if we were in a hurry as "The Paddock" is less than a 1/8 mile away from home and with gas prices so high we can walk. Other than that I wouldn't step foot in this dump again if other choices were available.

  • Order: Steak and Eggs, Eggs over w/toast

  • i like going here. but the service is spotty ,there is a high turnover and very weak training, if any at all. our server was baudy and bossy we ordered quickly and waited. when it arrived my wife had bacon she didn't order and there was no burger to be seen in my bacon cheeseburger omelet, but lots of bacon. we got the wrong order! the waitress never checked back [an industry standard] so there was no complaining. the place is dirty an you see it in the daylight as opposed to the evening.but rich and greg try to run a tight ship. maybe too tight. gotta pay for good help.

  • Order: bacon cheese burger omelet, 1 egg over easy rye toast

  • I was very disappointed to find out that the clams were imported from CHINA, pre-frozen, cleaned, and bagged before they reached the restaurant. I will always ask the waitress before-hand if the clams are from CHINA...what a bad decision PADDOCK!!!!

  • Order: clams
