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.

Pino’s – Orchard Park

We were not thrilled with Pino's in Orchard Park.    The food was fine, but the place felt like a cafeteria and was very blue and very BRIGHT!

We rated it as a 3 fin.

Eckl’s Restaurant – Orchard Park

Location: 4936 Ellicott Road, Orchard Park, NY  14127

Phone:716 662-2262

Price: $  14.99

Ambiance: This is a old  family run restaurant with two dinning rooms located on opposite sides of the building. There is also a bar area in between and that includes a few cocktail tables.  This restaurant is located on the village edge of Orchard Park and  the decor is very very dark and old and quite outdated.  The room that we sat in was overcrowded with tables that were too close together.  The result was that we sat at a table with 4 chairs but in reality would only fit 2 people and not very comfortably at that.  We were so close together that it was impossible not to over hear everything that was said at the neighboring tables.

Service: The service was prompt and friendly.  We were greeted upon entering and were seating right away.   Our hostess took our drink orders and the waitress was quick to take our orders too.

Food: We ordered soft drinks and they arrived quickly but we were so disappointed when we realized that the soda was FLAT.  I told the waitress about the beverages and her response was....."all our customers keep telling me that."  I asked her if she received regular complaints then wouldn't she think there was something wrong?  Her follow up was, "We tell Mr. Eckl this all the time, but he told us it's fine, and that we just need to tell the customers that this is  fountain beverage and that is to be expected.  Mr. Eckl, I am sorry to tell you that you are not correct.  I think you should check out your equipment and adjust the CO2 levels.

Rye bread was served at the table and it was fresh and good.

I was also very disappointed with our fish, it appears not to be "fresh" and looks as though it came from a pre-prepared frozen box.  It was not crispy, and tasted just OK.      The fries were the best part of the dinner and they were crisp, the coleslaw was also good.  There was no potato salad or macaroni salad, and for 14.99 I would think for sure this meal would have been served with the traditional sides.

Rating: 1  fin

Recommendation: I would NOT recommend going to Eckl's Restaurant for a fish fry.  I hear they have many great options on their menu, but the Friday Fish Fry is NOT one of them.

Mia’s Restaurant – Orchard Park

My Fish Fry

Location: 4905 South Buffalo Street, Orchard Park NY

Phone: 716-667-2002

Price: $  12.00

Ambiance: The ambiance is different depending on where in the restaurant you are sitting.  I really wanted to be on the covered back porch, but the wait was a bit longer than for inside.  Since it was late and I was really hungry we opted for the inside.  This was a mistake!  We were seated in about 15 minutes but unfortunately we were placed at a table next to the steel door that lead to the crowded porch.  The wait staff exited and entered through this door about every 8 seconds and allowed the door to SLAM each time.  Needless to say, the meal was not RELAXING as it should have been.

Service: Friendly we waiting about 15 minutes for a table at 8pm.  Our waitress was efficient and friendly.  Our food was served quickly.

Food: The fish fry was good.  Not the best I have ever had but clearly acceptable.  The meal was served with Rye Bread, French Fries, Cole slaw and tuna macaroni salad.

Rating: 3 fins
