I like the look, but two complaints:

 

1. The menus are .pdf files.  I hate that.  You should never, ever, ever force the user to have an add-on and to open another window in order to view what's primarily textual data.  There's no reason why you can't incorporate the menus into the site itself, with a printer friendly version available.

 

2. The background images have a distracting load time and pop-in.

The only thing i really noticed was that the background image load times are intense i would optimize them more. other then that it looks great.

Thanks for the feedback

I've already flagged the pdf menus with the restaurant and I'm hoping to have them in html format and also into the cms for them to control.

I'll have a crack at getting the background images down in file size

 

many thanks again!

"The Weighing Room" on the left menu looks like it is cut off on my screen, not sure if anything is below it or not.

 

I see you fade the background image in, but to make it "cleaner", you could do some js like so:

imgPath = "/path/to/image.jpg";
img = new Image();
img.src = imgPath;
img.load = function(){
    $("#myDiv").css({backgroundImage: imgPath, display: "none"}).fadeIn("fast");
}

The site is neat, I'll give you that. However my largest concern is how vivid the backgrounds are in comparison with the opaque containers.  The clash is too intense to legibly read the words without strain

Hi Little guy,

thanks for the js clean up. i'll give that a blast tonight.

How do you mean about the menu being cut off? which browser are you using? any chance of a screen grab?

 

many thanks again!
