I have been The Other Place a few times before and have always been impressed. Never thought of doing a review on it, but after my last visit I can’t resist. Being a family friendly bar & grill I went for dinner with my in-laws and their two young children and my baby Lucas. We got seated quickly and waited on in a decent amount of time. We all ordered the exact same thing, the Philly cheese steaks. You think ordering Philly Cheese Steaks it would be steak, but for some reason our waitress ordered them all as chicken. I am pretty sure she was new and although some of us ate it some of us had to wait for the order to be corrected and made with the steak.
They were very apologetic and even discounted our order for the error. Once we got the correct food it was very good. Not as good as Chartroose’s Philly’s, but a close second. The fries were plentiful and seasoned to perfection. As we were dining the server never once checked on us after the mistake. I am not sure if it was embarrassment, but we did not see her again until she brought the check by. You think you would make sure no drink refills were needed, but maybe she was busy. Then before we were leaving we noticed the wall behind us had a broken plate covering where electrical outlets use to be.
The wires being clearly exposed within reach of any young child who might explore and injure themselves. Hopefully these are not live wires, but a plate cost around 20 cents and could be replaced easily. The establishment has some history and could be updated for safety reasons. Dinner was good, service was a little disappointing and the concerns over the safety have me a little worried. I might be back, but I will give it some time so maybe they will make the necessary repairs.
