Buttercup Grill & Bar in Oakland is worth dining in ;-) – A Sunday (9/20/09) late evening swim in the pool on a beautiful day in good ol' Alameda @ my couzin's place...now what to eat for dinner? Nah, don't really feel like fast food & nothing in the fridge..kinda feel like dinning in @ a "dive-like" place w/ affordable prices...well then Buttercup Grill & Bar in Oakland was the perfect choice!

LOCATION: When I say next to Hwy 880, I mean seriously next to Hwy 880. Location is tricky if u drive fast, so sloooow down so u don't pass the place. Next to Sara Lee Bakery Group, which is in plain site off of Hwy 880 around 23rd Ave exit. They have private parking lot, but (unmetered) street parking available too.

RESTAURANT: Large, clean, spacious, handicap friendly, & welcoming to folks of all sizes. Spacious & large outdoor patio w/ umbrellas, & a small bar area. A lil' higher league than Denny's, Carrows, & separate from IHOP 'cuz they have a bar, but doesn't put them in league w/ Chili's, TGIFridays, Chevy's, etc. A great location for eats solo, w/ another, or a very large party.

CUST SVC: Our waitress-Carmen was eeeeexcellent! My sis, couz, & myself arrived this past Sun 9/20/09 prob around 7pm. Not very busy at all, but few patrons inside. Carmen was excellenet in the manner of being a patient, polite, friendly, & a thorough waitress doing everything you expect or take for granted. Thanks Carmen & keep up the good work to u & ur team =)

TASTES: Couz ordered a soda (FREE REFILLS) that sis & I sipped while enjoying our glass of water *tee-hee*. We sampled 2gthr the Buffalo Shrimp; for some reason smaller portion than what we expected, or maybe the plate was too big; just ok, no need to rush & get this. Sis felt like breakfast so got Pancakes w/ scrambled eggs & a side of hash; egg portion looked small, but turned out to be fulfilling. I kid you not her pancakes smelled so good as she cut them up! Of course I had to taste them, & official SCRUM-DIDLY-UMPTOUS Stamp for hotcakes! Couz & I both got Fish & Chips; I substitued my coleslaw for potato salad & couz sub for extra fries. A very crunchy, crispy, & hot dish here. Fries were really tasty & fish was good; crumbled bread batter & almost seemed double fried being so crunchy...not thick pieces of fish, but still good.

FINAL TAB: So we spent $47 & change for 1 soda (free refills), 1 app, & 3 entrees (1-breakfast w/ side, 2-dinners). As much as we initially thought we'd be able to sample a slice of their upside down apple pie, too full & couldn't do it...definitely next time. Awesome service (high five Carmen), comfy seating, & great food. Nice way to end my weekend out w/ sis & couz =) This place gets a recommendation from me!
