The Station

In the same building where Papa’s used to be (for those of you who know where that is), there is now another opportunity for family dining.

We sat outdoors on the patio after a long day trip, and it was just right. Though they have a full bar, their beer selection was a little on the skimpy side (but we both found something nevertheless).

After seeing someone else’s dinner come out on platters, portions big enough for three people, we decided against appetizers. I went for a classic Reuben sandwich with fries and was not disappointed, especially since I only ate half and had some left over for the next day’s lunch. It also came with a Greek salad, which was average, save for the house dressing, which had a special tasty zip to it.

Chris ordered a burger… a 12oz burger. This was the only size option for him, but he managed to get the whole thing down. He said that it was good, but nothing noteworthy, to be honest. I think we were both a little put off by how large the portions were. I know some people like that and can handle a huge meal, but it makes us personally feel a little too gluttonous, and we both prefer more manageable sizes.

Jon’s eggplant parmesan, for example, was huge. His plate was about two feet across. He enjoyed it, though, and was pleased that they honored his request to go easy on the cheese.

All in all, it was a good dinner, but nothing extraordinary. Again, if you’re looking for a laid-back family restaurant with some basic staples, the Station is a good option.
