I agree, although sometimes it's worth the price. Going to Smoky's tomorrow, as it is Ms Vilas's b-day. That, and they only have the stuffed mushrooms during restaurant week.
My regular Restaurant Week dining companion was busy every evening this week so yesterday we went to Roast for lunch instead. Yum! Food was up to Roast's usual high standards, though the pork belly appetizer was so rich it could have been a meal in itself, and caused the pulled pork sandwich to shine a bit less by comparison (plus it was really hard to finish). With a beer and tip my bill came to the mainly-honored-in-the-breach Restaurant Week standard of $25, which left some change for coffee to make it through the rest of the afternoon

The prices seemed reasonable. My meals were similar or less than the usual cost for this food:
Weds lunch at Porta Bella. Salad, lobster stuffed ravioli, almond cake for $15. Not usually offered except salad..
Thurs dinner at Claddagh's. Ceasar Salad, grilled salmon, carrot cake for $25. Normally $22 plus dessert.
Fri lunch at the Statehouse. Ceasar Salad, seared walleye, creme brulee for $15. Normally $25 plus dessert.
$55 well spent.
