The menu at Earls focuses on freshly made, seasonally inspired, casually elegant West Coast cuisine with International flavour. In addition to wide variety of dishes Earls has a drink menu to match.
Where to begin? There had been some issues I encountered when dining there. First of all, the service(waitresses) may have hospitality but still terrible. One waitress, I encountered was very rude and also on top of that, the wait for the food was 45 mins. This is not a place for families unless you want to spend a lot. The food is really overpriced with a little portion. The only dish that was great was the pizza.
I am not going there again, only a one time thing.
Having been to Earl's Strawberry Hill before, we knew that we would experience food that was well presented and very tasty. We were not dissappointed at the Lobster Event.
The place was very busy, with a fun excited feel and as we arrived at our booth we could see the special preparations in place for the Lobster Event - bibs laid out, special napkins, special placemats and of course the "trophy bucket" for our Atlantic Lobster shells.
Despite the full restaurant we received our drinks very quickly and which were refreshed without asking.
We ordered the fresh guacamole for our appy which is prepared at the table and served with warm chips baked right in the restaurant.
When our lobster arrived the presentation was great - a good big plate with room for the prawns, potatoes and the half corn on the cob. The half lemon, dish of melted butter and correct lobster utensils made it easy to enjoy the whole thing. I have not had much faith in restaurant corn on the cob - but the corn was good. We asked for more butter and it arrived quickly. Definitely the best lobster I have had since I was in Fredricton a few years ago.
Crystal - our server - was engaging. She and the rest of the staff showed nothing but competence and pleasant energy despite the busy place.
We finished the night with a huge piece of pumpkin pie which was delicious. After a couple hours we left having had a great meal and a very enjoyable time. Our expectations were completely met.
I'm no restaurant critic or marketing guru, but since we have always experienced a good meal and a good time at Earl's Strawberry Hill, I encourage you to check it out.
Love the new Decor, a few details need looked @ though such as draping frayed edges need fixed. The washroom auto soap did not work. They did bring in a hand pump though.
The new salad I had was so great. Friend had another one & loved it. Main course was hot & perfectly done. Lots of flavour.
Service was a tad over zealous, making us feel a bit rushed.
