In town visiting a friend that is stationed here. She is a single mom that has a 2 yo. Said that I had to try this place because the food is absolutely wonderful. Well, went in there tonight right at the time they opened. Was greeted with a not so friendly woman at the entrance. We were seated and then my friend left to take her daughter to the bathroom to wash her hands. The waitress took our drink orders asked us about appetizers. We received our drinks and waited for our salads. She brought out bread and placed that. Salads came and by this time drinks were empty and she never asked to refill. Now at this time someone was seated next to us, I seen the waitress asked them if they would like oil or dipping sauce for their bread... this was never offered to us. She then came to refill their drinks, but not ours. Then our food came, still no refills. I see the waitress bring the food to the table next to us and apparently the boy at that table received the wrong food and the mom is saying don t touch it since it isn t the right thing. The waitress brings back more food to them, 4 people at this table, and realizes the mistake takes his plate hands him the right one then takes the wrong plate over to the table it should have went to and hands it to the guy at said table... OH NO!!!! That is so wrong. This little boy had had his face in that plate sniffing it and this waitress had taken the food over to another man!!! I have never in my life seen such a thing happen. We have now finished our meal and I have seen the table next to me get a total of 3 refills and we have had none. So, I am not sure if they do not like small children, believe we were a gay couple and do not like that, or what their issue was... BUT the quality of the food ROCKED and that was outweighed by the HORRIBLE service and seeing a plate being placed at the wrong table then taken to another. I would never recommend it to someone and would never go back. I will be back to Fallon since my friend is stationed here for another 2 1/2 yrs so they lost a customer.
We went to dinner on a Friday at 6:30. We did not have reservations. Our wait was short. They were out of the specials so we ordered from the menu. My husband had the hand cut new york, I had the medalions of filet. Our salads were absolutely great, organically grown at Lattin Farms. The Steak was cooked perfectly, My filet with port wine reduction was amazing. My husband has ordered the mac and cheese for a side, I had the wedged potatoes with blue cheese. The mac and cheese was very good. We were to full for dessert but it looked wonderful. It has been a long time since we had a good food experience in Fallon. Someone actually gave a damn about the quality of food they served. And P.S. they have a great selection of beers.
My Brother & Sister in Law were the last ones to live in that old house before it was restored. Although it was a dog on the outside, the inside was fantastic. All wood, and original fixtures and cabinets. It did need a lot of work, but I have always thought that it should have been restored as a house, not a resturaunt. BUT, we are taking my wifes parents there for dinner this very night. When we moved, it was just stting empty, and I have not seen it since, so it will be very interesting. I will post again, post Slanted Porch. For now, I'll just call it , average, for unknown but hopeful!
The food is very good and the prices are in line with the quality and quantity. I found the service was a little slow, probably because it was very busy. But the noise level was terrible. It was difficult to carry on a conversation at our table. The owners need to do something to damping the noise – planters, small partitions, area rugs, something!
agree, the sandwiches are yummy! The service is great. However, when dining inside, it is difficult to carry on a conversation because of the acoustics in there. It is good that they are busy, but it is noisy! Dining outside is pleasant as the weather allows. It is a little bit higher priced, but let's face it, Fallon needs some classier places like this! I saw them working hard on restoring that house...it is beautiful now and brings some much needed asthetic appeal to the city of Fallon.
THIS IS A HIDDEN HOT SPOT... THE GOBBLER IS THE AMAZING NOT TO MENTION THEY HAVE SOME BEAUTIFUL WOMEN WORKIN THERE ESPECIALLY THE SEXY BARTENDER. BUT BESIDES THAT THE FOOD REALLY IS AWESOME AND THE WINE SELECTION IS GOOD TOO. YOU SHOULD DEFINITLY MAKE THIS A PLACE YOU HAVE TO AT LEAST VIST ONCE OR ONCE A WEEK LIKE ME
