In my previous post, I mentioned that before going to Martha’s Vineyard, we had lunch at ’99 restaurant & Pub’. I decided to write about my experience because it’s been a long time since I had such a hearty meal at an affordable price!
This was my first time there considering we don’t have their outlets close to where we stay. The restaurant’s ambience is pretty simple, with the walls adorned with 99 witty reasons of why you should visit them. It was a busy day being 4th of July, but their service was pretty quick.
Some of their entrées could be combined with soup and a petite dessert treat for an additional $3.49. Almost all the entrées were priced between $9.99 to $10.99. The starving souls inside us ordered 4 entrees out of which 2 were combos.
We started with their soup of the day which was chicken and corn chowder. So comforting and relaxing.
Then came the huge entrées. My husband ordered their ‘Sweet heat burger’ It had a nice juicy beef patty topped with cheddar cheese, sweet jalapeño relish, crispy jalapeños, lettuce, tomato and a chipotle drizzle. The burger was pretty big and came with a side of fries.
I opted for their ‘Balsamic Grilled Chicken’ which I must say was grilled to perfection. It had lemon rosemary garlic chicken breasts glazed with balsamic vinegar. It came with a side of rice and any veggie of your choice. Since I am too finicky when it comes to vegetables, the server was kind enough to substitute it with coleslaw.
Our friend decided to go for the ‘Homestyle Chicken Pot Pie’ which I can say is the perfect comfort food!! It had soft chicken in savory gravy with carrots and peas, topped with a baked buttery crust. It was served with garlic mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce on the side. It was so steaming hot that he literally had to wait for a few minutes before he could dive in it.
Our friend’s wife chose their ‘Macadamia Crusted Chicken’ which had toasted macadamia nuts on chicken breast topped with a lemon curry sauce and grilled asparagus. This too came with rice but there was some refreshing fruit salsa with it as well.
The lunch was more than enough for all of us and we practically had no room for even the tiniest amount of dessert. So of course we had to ask them to pack it for us.
We chose the ‘Peanut Butter Brownie’ and ‘Tin Roof’ Petite Treat. The brownie was topped with a vanilla ice cream scoop and a drizzle of chocolate sauce while the latter had a chocolate cookie topped with sweet cream cheese and chocolate ganache drizzled with caramel sauce.
I apologize for the lack of a good photo of the dessert since it was packed in a to-go container and I clicked it when we had it in the car.
