My husband and I had a very good meal over the weekend at Don's Pomeroy House. We were also lucky enough that what we intended on getting happened to be on special that night. Our waitress had the perfect balance of checking on us without being intrusive on our special evening.
We've been here 3 times and it has always been very good. Love the food, service, and the house is very neat too.
The food was excellent. Very well cooked and was the best part of dining at Don Pomeroy's House.
Overall an very good meal, we had the Surf & Turf , it was cooked and presented very well , but for the price the portions were a bet on the small side. Our server was very good BUT the other servers kept bumping into the back of my chair all night. They might train their people a little better or put more space between tables.
WE LOVE DON'S!!!! excellent FOOD AND ATMOSPHERE!!! HELP IS FRIENDLY COURTEOUS AND VERY HELPFUL. CHEF ALWAYS SUPERB
We wanted to LOVE this restaurant. We have been waiting for quite some time to try our Don’s Pomeroy to have a closer option for fine dining and date nights than Pier W, Fleming’s and similar.
We just didn’t. Not at all.
Food: We had the calamari as an appetizer which was very well cooked and the sauce was perfect. My husband got the steak and lobster in which the steak was just not up to par and the lobster was average. I had the roasted chicken which was basically a soup for how much salty gravy came on top. Somewhat ruined the dish how it was all just swimming. More like a stew - and I may have mentioned salty! Dessert was their special for the evening-red velvet cheesecake. This was OK except I have NO idea why you would drench the thing in store bought chocolate syrup. It ruined anything it had going for it.
I definitely noticed that every other table got complimentary chocolate covered strawberries since it was Valentines Day and for some reason we didn’t.....which leads me to-
SERVICE: not up to snuff. When we go to fine dining restaurants we love the experience. We are tended to in adequate and appropriate time, the server creates a connection and is something that can compliment a meal perfectly. Here-definitely not. We waited quite some time to be asked about a drink. My husband ordered a beer that they mentioned they were out of, he picked an alternate and somehow the original beer arrived. The server poured it and admitted she’s never been good at pouring beers. I almost figured this place didn’t serve bread until I looked around at other tables. Finally got bread after the calamari came to the table. Ordering after being left at the table extra long also felt rushed. Slammed in all drinks, apps and dinner selections at one time. Overall everything about waiting seemed to be the theme.
I wanted to love this place, and I just didn’t. The steak wasn’t as good as other places, my chicken was not great and the service was not even close to expectations
Accommodated a change in party number easily. Server was fantastic. Food was great-significant seafood selection. Great appetizers. Dessert was fantastic too!
The Pomeroy House never disappoints. I have been going here for years for special occasions and family celebrations. The main dining room is sublime and the Pub is great for craft cocktails and lively conversations or a romantic dinner in one of the cozy booths. The food is excellent and the prices match that quality. Highly recommend!
Best meal I’ve ever eaten. This is what fine dining is supposed to be. Great quality food for a reasonable price for a special occasion. Will definitely return.
Brought my husband here for his birthday, thy greeted us at the door and wished him a happy birthday! The server was nothing short of amazing, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was inviting. I definitely give this place 5+ stars. Thank you for making our experience great!
