Latest Fitzgerald's of Middleton news and reviews
Fitzgerald's call themselves the "place for steaks," but we found they laid on a nice brunch too. The kind of place your extended family would like you to take them after little Ellie's first communion.
Unlike most buffets, Fitzgerald's doesn't suck. It's homey rather than slick, but once you get past the drab exterior, it's pretty nice.
On this Sunday morning, the buffet featured a made-to-order omelet bar (bonus points for the huge bowl of salsa), adorable tiny waffles (cuz who wants to fill up on a huge waffle when there are 20 feet of other treats?), salad bar, kids' bar (hot dogs, mac & cheese, etc.), and a fruit and dessert bar including soft serve and toppings...
...not to mention the buffet entrees: broasted chicken, lasagna, baked haddock, turkey and dressing, ham, crockpot ribs, and, of course, bacon, eggs, sausage and pancakes.
Needless to say, we only sampled a bit of this cornucopia, but what we had was of high quality. We overheard some folks, particularly seniors, grumbling about how they nearly scalded their hands reaching for the items on the back of the hot line. Still, it didn't stop them.
A couple highlights were the delish carrot cake (Nichole's pick) and JM loved the mini corndogs & various gravies (three on his plate at one time!).
We didn't try their Bloody Marys - we'll have to leave that for next time.
