The food is just wonderful, no matter what you order. The specials are always special. 😊 The only negative is that it's pretty loud. Of course, only when it's busy. Which is always, because it's just so good.

Crawl fish bisque is our go to with the bread...... YUM! What ever you order you will be happy with. Not cheap, but it is a nice place and the food is really good. I try to only eat half my meal so I have lunch the next day. This is a great place for a date. :)

My husband loves spicy food and we found it here. Very small place so you need to get there early. Great martinis!

I'm a local and have never had a bad meal here. The blackened chicken, shrimp and scallops dinner is a favorite of mine, but everything on the menu is good... and don't forget about the daily specials. The atmosphere of the restaurant is "cozy" with tables very close together giving it a feel like many restaurants in NYC. The wait... More

The HSC is an awesome foodie with a Cajun theme little place. The food is consistently delicious, yes, delicious! Every dish I've had there is fantastic. It's small inside so if you're going on a weekend make a reservation. The drinks are good, a decent beer list, and the service has always been excellent. Highly recommend!

High Street is one of those rare gems that gets it right each and every time. We have been going to High Street for over 10 years and have never had a bad experience. The food and service is always fantastic. Rivals some of the top restaurants in NYC. What else is there to say. Do yourself a favor and... More

I decided to reserve a table for Father's Day based on reviews I read on Trip Advisor and I was not disappointed. Food was authentic and delicious. Every one enjoyed their meal from the appetizer to the desert. No one went home hungry. We are anxious to bring other families members to experience the tasty food. The calamari was some... More
