Hoboken411 reader Deb was kind enough to snap a picture of Dino & Harry’s Sunday Brunch menu!

What do you think of their offerings? How about the prices? Has anyone tried it yet?

Dino & Harry’s finally got their sign up, and have officially put an end to the Frankie & Johnnie’s era in Hoboken. I just wonder how long people will refer to Dino & Harry’s as “the old Frankie & Johnnie’s” and continue mentioned the movie “On the Waterfront” with Marlon Brando.

    :roll: There go the pro-stellar-logo-design prissies…

    Everytime I pass by D&H’s, just about every table is occupied with patrons. So, evidently, D&H is doing beyond fine with the logo most of you poo-poo on :mrgreen:.

    The “proof of the pudding is in the eating”. Previous comments include the food is great and the tables are occupied; can one say much more? 😛

  3. CreativeAngel says:

    Hope to check out their brunch, tomorrow. It depends on D&H’s schedule– don’t wanna have brunch too early! :mrgreen:

    Word is that this is a fairly new mealtime, too– it started up about two weeks ago. SO exciting!

    What are cottage fries?

  5. emarche says:

    Thicker cut fries – think: fat/thick potato chips.

  6. CreativeAngel says:

    Just wanna say that I heard through a small, small grapevine that Dino is very happy with your post, 411! 😀

    I had dinner at Dino & Harry’s Saturday night. I ordered the chopsteak special. It cost me $27.00. It came with bacon which was practically raw. It came with grilled onions. It also came with mashed potatoes. The mashed potatoes tasted like instant potatoes. The food was also cold. I can’t begin to describe how dissapointed I am. I’ve had better food at a diner for cheaper.

    Never had their dinner. But I enjoyed the brunch!

    #29: I’ve eaten at O’nieal’s. I’ve never been dissapointed.

    Onieals has incredible food for a bar. I’d say it’s actually one of the best 3 or 4 restaurants of any kind in town. An Irish bar of all places has penne vodka that shames everyone else’s.

    Onieals: ‘Cept for the time they’d served us stale, partially-frozen muffins and the other time they’d included wilted greens in my friend’s burger… they are great!

    I’ll be dining at Dino’s tonight. Has anyone eaten there lately and had a positive experience? What’s good?

    Very, very solid experience at Dino and Harry’s. NY Strip was cooked to perfection – juicy, flavorful, nice sear on the outside, very well executed. The tuna tartare appetizer is best of the best. The filet mignon empanadas are also delicious. Even the desserts were a hit (the Snowboken and apple cobbler). My only issue was the pace of the meal – the food arrived waaaay too quickly, did not really have time to enjoy drinks and conversation. But otherwise, the place has not skipped a beat. Mucho expensive, but high quality.

    I went last night for my daughter’s birthday because she loves steak. I can’t believe how terrible my meal was. So very disappointed, so much so I don’t think I will ever go back. My Sirloin Steak (and I chose this because the waitres said the Rib Eye tends to be more fatty) was fatty, had a strange taste and was just sitting in a pool of butter or oil or fat, not sure what it was. I found myself just trying to get it down and for $40! My daughter wouldn’t even eat it. My grilled asparagus was also swimming in butter or oil. I suggest you request no butter when you go. Why can’t food be grilled and left alone? Best part of my meal was the piano player. Not sure what happened there. I thought maybe with the name change the chef and/or management changed but I am told this is not so. It was a real disappointment.

      Strange taste – dry aged? Is a lot gamier than mass-market wet-aged. That could have made a big difference. Grass-fed would also make it a lot gamier than we’re accostumed to nowadays.
