We thought we were going to dinner at the Palm Harbor Bistro only to discover Detroit Coney Island had taken over the restaurant space.   They seemed busy, so we stayed for dinner.  They were having a Friday fish fry and the air in the restaurant was thick with a greasy fried smell.  Loren ordered the pastrami burger and I decided to try the fried fish.

Loren said the burger was good.  It was cooked a bit past the medium that he ordered, but otherwise it had a good flavor and the pastrami was tasty.  Though I’m not a big fan of cornmeal crusted fish, this one was good.  You get a choice of three different varieties of fish and I went with the walleye.  It was piping hot when it got to the table and the fish was tender and flaky.  Overall the food was good.  The downside for us was how loud it was inside.  And it wasn’t due to the customers, it was the waitstaff.  They would yell across the restaurant to each other.  At one point, there was someone directly behind Loren yelling to someone at the other end of the restaurant about cleaning off a table.  It was like being back in my Italian family where they only have one volume level and that’s loud.  If we decide to go back again, we’ll definitely sit outside.  Total bill with a drink was $23.
