Smack me upside my head with a pink snapper tartare , ruby grapefruit and spiked avocado but it’s been awhile since we have awarded the coveted Lindsay Good, Bad and Ugly Award. So without further ado this weeks Ugly Award goes to Joel’s 19 Cambridge St S, Lindsay, Ontario. The term Fine Dining (Joel’s recently won a fine dining readers choice award but that’s another whole blog award)brings to mind all kinds of images, from crisp white table cloths to waiters in tuxedos. Fine dining, just as the name suggests, offers patrons the finest in food, service and atmosphere and although I have never heard a bad comment in regards to the food or service the exterior and interior of this establishment by no means adds to the atmosphere or ambiance of fine dining. Congratulations on this Ugly Award. Please contact Ridout Photography for a $50.00 print credit voucher.
I think Frank sums it up best from a review I found online:
- “Although there are no great choices in Lindsay to go out and have a splendid meal (at least we haven’t found them yet) Joel’s does do a good job. From the outside bruised and battered facade you may think that this place isn’t open. Once inside you are seated in what appears to be your Grandmothers living room, complete with wood paneling, old dated chairs and poor decorating. The food will make up for the other disappointments. I would recommend it….just keep your eyes closed until you smell your dinner.”
