The prison motif is apparent here, as there are some places around the restaurant with prison bars, but not overwhelming: the atmosphere is actually rather subdued. Service was good and friendly, very accommodating when we had to swap around seats when our group became too large. For this reason I didn't much begrudge the precalculated 20% tip that was already added onto my bill. I had water to drink (and I'm glad: I hear drinks were $2.25!) and it came in a glass with a lemon slice. Table service was metal flatware in a linen napkin, and food was served on a rectangular china platter, rather interesting. It was garnished with a lettuce leaf and lengthwise pickle slice. I had the fries as my side. They were okay, thin and crisply and seasoned with what seemed to be Lawry's season salt, and came with a little metal cup of ketchup. I was surprised they didn't offer onion rings. The sandwich, as you'd expect at the price, was dominated by a mountain of beef. The beef itself was fairly lean but a bit chewy, and had a tendency to come out of the sandwich in clumps. The meat dominated the flavors, but I could taste some cheese and kraut around the edges where the meat wasn't piled so high. I really couldn't detect the dressing at all. The bread was a pretty swirled rye, nicely toasted, and I think it had good flavor but again it was hard to tell with all the beef. Overall it wasn't a bad experience, but $14 for a sandwich, fries, and a glass of water is shameful.
