Holiday's Bar and Grill, Auburn, New Hampshire

Holiday's Bar & Grill, January 19, 2009

Although we were there for lunch, we ordered from the dinner menu. I opted for the scallops that were described as "fresh sea scallops baked with white wine, lemon butter and a cracker crumb topping". My first bite told me that I didn't care for the orange spice that I could see on the top; it does not seem to be a good choice for scallops. The only spice I could think it might possibly be is paprika?

My friend ordered the sirloin tips. We ended up splitting the tips and scallops. The sirloin tips were good, but the marinade was certainly not the best I've had. Would not order either of these again. My friend had the French onion soup, which also included an odd tasting spice that was visible around the edges of the cup.

The salad was very good with fresh vegetables and fruit (yes tomatoes and cucumbers are fruit).

This was probably my 4th or 5th visit. I don't know why I keep going back. The service was adequate.

I would give this restaurant a C.
