DAL: Am I in for a beating if I go to Coal Vines tonight?
I really want to try this place but if it is too noisy, an over-the-top yuppster scene, and slow service than I will not go. Would Fireside Pies be better?
There will be four of us going at 7:30 PM on a Thursday.
I'd say it's a bad idea to go there at 7:30 on a thursday, it'll probably be pretty busy and have slow service.
both places are entirely reasonable for dinner as long as you get there by 6 p.m.; even 6:30 isn't too bad. by around 7 is when it starts to get to be too much (for me, anyway). but i think they're both fabulous and well worth your time
I've been to both, and both are generally crowded. The food is better at coal vines and the wine selection is better, too.
