Immaculate Heart of Mary - 2/15/2013

Overall  (4 of 5)

Immaculate Heart of Mary was our second stop on Friday after a very stimulating experience at St. Cecilia's.  We arrived relatively late as far as fish frys are concerned (6:30 pm).  The crowd had thinned out, but there was still food to eat.  So far this year, Immaculate Heart of Mary, hands down, has the best tasting fish fry food I have had yet this year.  I highly recommend getting over there to try their fish and their sides.  It was DELICIOUS!  They also have drive thru service and delivery service from 5 to 7 pm.

Fish and Main Dishes  (5 of 5)

VARIETY:  Fried Cod, Baked Tilapia, Fried Shrimp, and Baked Salmon on Special.   Served with French bread.  It looked like one of the specials had sold out before we got there.

TASTE:  The cod was absolutely delicious!  Lightly battered and crispy on the outside, and tender, flaky, and hot on the inside. The piece of fish was a very generous size, too.

VALUE:  $8.50 for Cod, $9 for Baked Tilapia or Baked Salmon.  Each dinner includes 2 sides, a drink, and a dessert (while they last).  Kids meals for $4 include 1 side and a drink and a choice of Mac & Cheese, Grilled Cheese, or Nachos.

CONDIMENTS:  Ketchup, Tartar, Cocktail, Sriracha, and Malt Vinegar.  Most were served in larger containers.  Tartar sauce was very tasty.

Side Dishes  (5 of 5)

VARIETY:  Green Beans, Pasta con Broccoli, Mac & Cheese Shells, Applesauce, French Fries, Cole Slaw. 

TASTE:  All homemade side dishes that rotate in and out each week.  The green beans were delicious.  The homemade pasta con broccoli was amazing, too.  The Mac & Cheese consisted of large shell noodles. 

VALUE:  Average-sized portions.  $1.50 for an extra side dish.

Beverages and Desserts  (4 of 5)

BEVERAGES:  Lemonade, iced tea, and coffee were complimentary.  The iced tea was empty when we got there, though.  Sodas for $1.  Bud, Bud Light, Bud Select, or Busch cans for $2.   The lemonade was fantastic!  Best lemonade I’ve had in a while.

DESSERTS:  Desserts were sparse by the time we arrived, but I did try a peanut butter cookie that was very good.  Everything appeared homemade.

Atmosphere and Extras  (1 of 5)

Held in the school cafeteria, there wasn’t much else going on besides a delicious fish dinner.  The walls were decorated with artwork from the students.  The people at IHM are really focused more on the quality of the fish dinner than anything else.  The staff was very friendly, and even came over to talk to us after we had been sitting a while.

Signage, Flow, and Line  (4 of 5)

The cafeteria was marked with a sign outside, and there was a giant dry-erase board with the entire menu listed.  We didn’t wait to pay, but even though it was 6:30, there was still a tiny bit of a food line.  We moved through it pretty quickly.
