"Current Cut American Cafe ST. Thomas

Cannot recommend Current Cut. After waiting for the opening and a few weeks for them to work out the kinks, tried it yesterday for lunch.

The wait staff was poor and unattentive. Our orders of a Cobb Salad came with soured tomatoes and the taste of the inside of the refrigerator. Obviously it had been pre made in the dish and placed inside refrigerator. It was served in a deceptive dish that appeared to be a large salad portion for $12.50 yet was acutally just a small cobb salad serving. The Rueben lacked the corn beef to make it a meaty sandwich for $10.00 and the dabbling of bean sprouts onn the side was pathetic. The $1.50 for french fries was a nice size bowl, but the $1.50 for 5 onion rings in a bowl was absurd.

We had to beg for refills on ice tea which was over brewed, and water drinks. It has an upstairs with views of Marina Market, it was quite noisy. The decor was appealing but the food and service didn't make us want to return.

We live on island and had heard good things about Current Cut. Unfortunately, the food and the menu doesn't entice us to want to give them a second chance.

  1. Well we called this one correct!

    Current Cut went out of business on June 28, 2008.

    Seems others felt the way we did!
