January 13, 2012 – Green Lantern (McFarland)

Kevin says: Homey, traditional, tasty, inexpensive.

Pat says:  Have to say that I really like this place.  I met some friends here after work, then had dinner with Kevin.  The bar has comfortable tables, the background music is just loud enough to stay in the background, and the cheese curds and nachos were the best that I’ve had a long time.  There is no table service in the bar, but it wasn’t hard to get the attention of the bartender when it was time for another round.  Even if you’ve never been here before, they do a good job of making everyone feel welcome.  For dinner, Kevin had fish fry with roast potatoes and I had baked salmon with hash browns.  The fish fry was good, not great – I had a couple of bites and thought that it could have been a bit crispier.  Same thing with the hash browns – they could have been crisper.   The salmon was very good – not too salty, served with melted butter.  The dinners came with a side salad – nothing special, just bag lettuce and carrots.  The ranch dressing had a strong undertaste of smoke flavor – definitely not my favorite.  We had great service – from the bartenders, to the host who seated us to the waitress to the guy at the register, everyone acted like they were glad that we dropped in.  I’m looking forward to our next visit.  9 out of 10.
