My wife and I had a small window to escape without the children so we had diner at the pint on Saturday evening. It was our first trip here in over a year. While we have always enjoyed the food and beer on our previous visits something was off this time around.
I ordered the pulled pork sandwich which came out extrememly dry, and chewy. I was not impressed at all. On the other hand the potatoes and coleslaw were fantastic. My wife ordered off the specials board, and got the chipotle bbq chicken. While the chicken was moist, the bbq sauce lacked flavor and pizazz. She was however delighted with her salad. So, While our entrees were definitely off, the side dishes were as tasty as I can ever remember. The service was exceptional on Saturday night. I can recall a few times in the past where we have had some pretty lame service but tonight was spot on.
The beers seem to be lacking a bit these days. I had the kolsch and the ESB while my wife had the shweat. The Kolsch had a very noticable diactyl taste, which I would not expect from this style.
While the ESB was cask conditioned, and somewhat tasty it did lack body, and seemed rather thin. The shweat was also lacking body, and any real flavor, but at 3.1% what can yo expect?
Overall the experience was good, and the food reasonably priced for local organic stuff. Next time I'll sample some more beers and hopefully find something that suits my taste.
