O’Briens – Hamburg NY

Location 32 Main Street, Hamburg, NY  14075

Phone: 716-646-6328

Price: $ 9.99

Ambiance: The Restaurant is a deli with a "cafe" in the front of the Store.  There is a old bar that is quite charming and very unique, made from old lumber, shutters, etc.  There are two tables out in front on the sidewalk for outside dining.  The seating area is quite small but very inviting.

Service: Our service was great.  We were able to choose where we wanted to sit and our waitress came right away to take our orders.  She talked about the restaurant, our choices of the daily specials, and took our orders promptly. 

Food: Our food was good.  It was served very HOT, and included Rye Bread, Cole Slaw, Marconi salad and our Beer battered fish.  Although I am sure the rye bread was fresh, it was very dry.  My guess would be that the package was open allowing the air to dry it out.  The salads were homemade and very good.  The cole slaw appeared to be chopped in a food processor and was very fine.  I enjoyed it, my husband would have preferred to have it chopped a little less fine.  Our Fish was very hot, not very large and the batter did not taste like beer batter.  It tasted more like a plain batter and was a bit boring to me.

Beers on tap: Southern Tier IPA, Flying Bison, Raspberry Wheat

Recommendation:  3 1/2 Fins

We visited this restaurant before we started doing formal ratings with photos, and reviews.

 

We are adding it on our site because we really wanted to keep a log of all the places we have been in the past 2 years.

The Aud Sports Bar and Grill

Location: 6036 Transit Road, Depew, NY 14043

Phone: (716) 685-5665

Price: $  9.99

Ambiance: The Aud Sports Bar & Grill is a average bar and grill for Buffalo.  There was a small dinning room off to one side and a fairly large bar area.  This bar also has live entertainment with a small stage to the back.  The bar was quite loud and difficult to have a conversation.  There were lots of TV's that could be viewed from many different locations with ease.

Service: We arrived at around 6:45 and the wait time for a table was to be about 15 - 20 minutes.  That was acceptable and we went to the bar for a drink.  We were dinning with some friends and it was nice to have a drink together before having dinner.  The waitress was energetic and took good care of us.

Food: The fish selection was  broiled, beer battered or Breaded.  Between the four of us we had two battered, one breaded, and one broiled.  Our friend who had battered said his was good.  A "safe" fish fry, not exceptional not bad, the Broiled fish was said to be good.  Our battered fish could have been cooked longer.  The fish was tender and good, but the batter was not cooked enough on the inside.  The outside was crispy.  They had rye bread, cole slaw and macaroni salad.  All were good.

Rating: 3.5  fins

Recommendation: Although I was not thrilled with my dinner it was acceptable.  For WNY it was just average.
