Continental Country Club Restaurant in Wildwood is noted for whipping up tasty homemade foods, and my party of three couldn’t resist checking it out for a weekday lunch.
We were seated in the lounge, overlooking a picturesque view of the golf course and oak trees with Spanish moss swaying in a gentle breeze. Our server did a great job making recommendations, and sharing weekly specials.
My Continental Club wrap sandwich of crispy bacon, ham, turkey, American cheese, tomato, and lettuce was served with a cup of chili, and both were delicious. I loved how the chili had chuncks of tomatoes, meat, and beans with a little spicy kick.
My friend Leigh never misses a chance to order fish, and the Fried Pollack was highly recommended. It was a larger sandwich than she expected, so she requested a “to-go” box to take half it of home for her husband to enjoy. Her meal was served with sweet potato fries and maple mayo that she found tasty, and she was right. The touch of maple provides a nice flavor.
Our friend Michelle enjoyed the Classic Reuben of hot corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and 1,000 Island dressing on marble rye bread, along with a cup of the day’s special of spicy sausage chowder.
As much as we enjoyed our lunch, we were eager to finish it off with a sweet, homemade dessert. However, we learned desserts are not cost-effective during the week, but are reserved for the popular all-you-can-eat Sunday Breakfast Buffet from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., in Continental’s beautifully refurbished dining room for $9.95 (excluding beverages).
The breakfast buffet just may be ideal for visiting family members, and our server says Taco Tuesdays, Italian Night on Wednesdays, and the Friday Night Fish Fry featuring all-you-can-eat Tilapia, and other seafood specials, are popular, too.
