We lunched at Dutch Valley on 41 for the first time. Pleasantly surprised with every aspect of the place that we’ve never been to in almost 30 years. Have we missed out.
We came in around 12:20 p.m. and were seated immediately at a table for 4. Our server, Angel, with light blue hair, quickly took our order and patiently asked us about what sides and salad dressing we wanted. There eclectic menu runs a vast spectrum of entrees.
My wife, Sybil ordered the brat plate with 2 large, nicely grilled brats, a bowl of red cabbage and a large serving of boiled red potatoes. I ordered the lamb shank, mashed potatoes and gravy.
Both of our entrees came with soup: Sybil had the lemon rice, and I enjoyed the split pea and ham. We also had fresh salads with blue cheese dressing.
After consuming those items, our meals came and we could barely eat a third of each portion. The bone on the lamb shank was loaded with tender, juicy, tasty lamb. The bone was too big to put in the to-go box, so Angel brought me a clear plastic bag. We give all our dog-bones to the gal who cuts Sybil’s hair.
After we nibbled at the main portion, Angel brought Sybil jello with fresh fruit and whipped cream. I enjoyed rice pudding with a heavy dash of cinnamon. I couldn’t finish mine. To recap, soup, salad, entrée and dessert for either $12.99 or $14.25! Can’t eat like that at home! We’ll be back.
