Last evening we went to Sgt. Peppers Grille & Bar in Oakdale, MN.
It was around 5:15 p.m. and we were seated right away in a booth next to the front door. The woman who seated us brought over a bowl of popcorn and set it on the table. Oh! I love popcorn. This popcorn though was quite salty. Not good for someone who has high blood pressure. Perhaps they should allow people to add their own salt at their table.
The waitress came right away and offered us drinks. I asked for a root beer with just a little ice. She came with a glass of root beer filled with ice. I tried taking the ice out and putting it in another glass but the cubes were quite large and they started falling on the floor. Oh well … when the waitress came back, I asked her if she could take some of the ice out. She whisked my drink away and brought me another one.
We had three items from the menu:
- Chicken Rice Soup
- Chicken Pot Pie
- Gyros (beef and lamb) with french fries
Next there was the gyros entree. It actually was pretty good although it didn’t have the usual feta cheese crumbled on it.
Lastly were the french fries. They would have been good but were doused in — salt! Again, if they would just leave the salt out then more of this visit would have gone well.
I could hardly eat them and left more than 3/4 of them.
The atmosphere was noisy but that’s to be expected because there’s a sports bar connected to the restaurant. The waitress had no animation and just seemed to go through the motions.
Ahhh well, we’ll continue looking for restaurants in the area.
