What was just a routine trip running a few errands turned into yet another restaurant review (thanks to that $100 gift certificate we had waiting to be used!)

For a typical nice Saturday, every business in Hoboken is supposed to be bustling with business. Quay’s (supposed to be pronounced “Keys”, but we still like saying “Kwaze”) was relatively quiet both inside and out.

But service was good from our waiter (forgot his name, but he reminded us of the guy with most “flair” in Office Space). He took our appetizer order (Fried Calamari). It was very well done and only lightly fried. A smidge on the chewy side, but both dips were terrific. A marinara and a thai lime.

I originally said in reviews many months ago that I typically use a bacon cheeseburger to judge a restaurant for the first time I eat there. Mental notes to self:
There are other things on the menu, especially if you go to an Irish Restaurant.
Stop ordering bacon cheeseburgers. You’re gonna get really fat soon.

But the burger was ok. I’m getting all burgered out.

My friend ordered the Chicken Panini with fresh mozz and roasted peppers. He said it was not what he expected, that the bread was a GIANT slab of dough, and the chicken tasted a bit processed. But he ate it. He ate it all!

Overall, the seating was nice and the view as always is something we love about Hoboken. The inside of Quay’s is also very nice, albeit a rather small bar. It’s too bad they don’t get as packed as Trinity or 340 Grill. It’s surprising, because it is rather “romantic” in the dining area.

We’ll be back to try some of their more signature dishes to see if it’s better than this standard grub. But that’ll be their last chance in our book to get some decent food there.

AND I hope my spelling was better this time?.. And my caps removed lol… Very Very bad , when you go out for a night out on the town in a bar or lounge you hope that the security in one of these places can at least keep you reasonably safe… PEACEFUL RESOLUTIONS I believe should be renamed,,, I wonder who owns this company?
