The entree menu here is less extensive than other Coffee Club outlets. Some popular items like pork ribs and slipper lobster linguineare not available at this branch. The day we visited both seafood entrees - fish and chips, and shrimp crusted salmon filet - were not available. So most of the choices left were pasta dishes. Hete is the pesto fish and clam chowder linguine $16.20++. The pasta was a little overcooked - turned out a tad soft rather than al dente. The clam chowder was bland and way too watery, and there was only five of the tiniest clams I've ever seen. There were two chunks of white fish that was totally bland and tasteless - obviously fish that had been in the freezer too long and not marinated prior - almost like eating microwaved fish. The handful.of mesclun leaves topping the dish was also out of place. Thumbs down!
