Not With My Money You Don't

We used to come to the Homestead all the time and regularly ordered take out the Buffalo Wings were to die for and a large order of 20 was only $9.95 , The Homestead Burger was always a treat especially with their home made chips. Over the years they added a large two floor dining room to handle the crowds.

Tonight Thursday 10/30/14 we arrived at 6:30 PM. There was no line waiting to get in (Hint) but the bar was full, yet the restaurant only had three tables occupied (Second Hint). We both had decided before getting there that we were going to treat ourselves to a nice filet.

My wife asked our first waitress (dark haired) if they had coke, she said sure (first lie) and ran off to get our drinks. The coke did not taste like coke, hell it didn’t even taste like pepsi. The menu confirmed our fear that it was RC cola. Well not to spoil the night we continued to order our filets both rare, potato and a house Cesar salad. A busboy arrived with some hot bread. We tried only to find it tasted like it had been reheated several times. We finally got another waitress who was just right. and got our order off to the kitchen,

Two more tables arrived and placed their orders..Yes you guessed it right, they both got their dinners 15 and 20 minutes before us,

It’s now around 7:20 PM and my wife inquires how long does it take to cook a rare filet?
At 7:30 PM they arrived with some real unusual stick sticking out my baked potato (Had to laugh at this one, had they watched Kitchen Nightmares?) To our surprise both plates had bight green mushy broccoli, several string beans and about 20 kernels of corn. (Now to get Broccoli that bight green you add baking soda while you boil them)
Now about the filets, yes they were rare and yes they cut them in half to check but sadly they were no true filets. Websters dictionary defines a filet as : a piece or slice of boneless meat or fish; especially : the tenderloin of beef . Well folks that was no tenderloin as gristle should not be present in large amounts if at all.

In short for $54 dollars and change this was not the dinner we envisioned. It seams that Sussex County restaurants have come full circle in 25 years and are back to serving poor quality food, hoping that a good place is just to far to drive on any night. Thank God I had the company of my lovely wife.

PS if you come for Happy Hour 3-6 PM you must be at the bar to get the discount.

Great Steak

We came looking for a tender, juicy steak and found it.
Also ordered the calves liver with bacon & onions (a special of the day) which was wonderful. Vegetables were also excellent (mixed, fresh veggies). Service was great and the overall experience was well worth coming back many times. You just need to arrive fairly early to not have a wait – popular place. The table next to ours had the burgers and said they were terrific.

Rib Steak House Special

Absolute steak perfection. Bone in, juicy and tender. The best steak in a long time. Vegetables were delicious and not over or under cooked.

Calves Liver with bacon and onion

Fresh calves liver is hard to find (not frozen) and this was delicious. A large portion with enough to take home.

Fried Calamari

Fried calamari appetizer was ok, but a bit too much batter and seemed overcooked. Not up to the entrees. However, we also had jalapeno poppers which were excellent.

Filet Mignon

Two at our table had the filet and they both agreed it was also well worth another visit. Great steaks all around. They requested mashed potatoes which were also excellent along with the other veggies.
