Gentlemen Gene's Pub and Eatery (Mount Vernon, Washington)

Gentlemen Gene's Pub and Eatery, 1400 Parker Way, Mount Vernon, Washington USA.
Tried Gene's out on a Friday for lunch. It was rather bland inside and could do with an injection of cash to spruce the place up. It opened in 1984 and probably has not seen a lot of renovations over the years. They have a large parking lot out front. Friday is all you can eat fish and chips for $13.95. You start of with 5 pieces of battered cod, coleslaw, fries, garlic toast and clam chowder soup. The soup was very good. The "All you can eat" includes soup, fries, fish and coleslaw. The fish and the coleslaw were both good! They have a couple of pool tables as well as pull tabs. My wife had the Shrimp salad and it was quite big, with very fresh vegetables. She was very pleased with her choice. One side of the establishment (on the left as you enter) is the side where children are allowed. In the middle is the raised up bar area and the sit up bar can seat about 20 people or so. The service was very good and friendly. They have several TV' but most were not on. In this day and age tube TV'S don't cut it, they need HD LCD TV'S! Time to get caught up! Quite a few locals frequent Gene's, and by the look of some of them they have been coming here since it opened up. I would come here again for the food. As I said, they need to make a few changes inside as it has a bit of a community hall feel to it!!
