After looking at the choices, jfood is taking a pass.

Is anyone taking advantage of the "specials"?

      Yeah, not all that much jumping out to me - particularly considering that I can eat just as cheap or cheaper at most of these places (since I don't drink) without the deal.

      Frankly, about the only thing I might take advantage of are the fish & chips at SBC. I haven't had them there, but they seem to be the kind of place that might do them well...

        I also took a pass. Only Market got my attention, and I never made it out!
        I completely agree with adamclyde that NO places looked like a good financial deal; I'd rather choose my food, in that case, than have a prix fixe. I hope places step it up in August, when the next resto week will take place.
        Adam if you try the fish and chips at SBC, I'd love to hear how you liked. I tried fish and chips at Mackenzie's on High Ridge and it was abysmal.

          I do like the fish & chips at royal guard near Shippan. The haddock is quite good (though it's been 3 years). Actually, the fish is good, the chips are very average...
