If forced to eat something at The Seven's...

...what would you suggest. I have an affinity for this divey wateringhole. It's like an dive bar that the preppy go to when they want to feel like they're slimming in, although Harpoons are still $6. Anyway, I often find myself hungry while there but have never been brave enough to take the culinary plunge. Is anything safe?

  1. All the food is actually fine. Very basic, but not bad. Fine fit for the surrounding and the beer.

    1. Haven't been in there in years, but I recall the food being standard pub fare, not terrible. Hard-drinking crowd never seems to notice anything.

      My general strategy in any situation where I'm faced with terrible food is to pre-game, i.e., eat dinner somewhere I like first, then claim a "late lunch" at the bad-food venue and push a salad or something around my plate if forced to. Life's too short to endure a Cheesecake Factory meal.

      1. The sandwiches are generally OK. Try the french dip. Do they still have the chili? Try that also--edible, though "safe" probably depends on the consumer. ;-) I don't think anyone thinks they are slumming there.

        1. I love the potato salad! :)
