Delicious food prepared fast - oysters on the half: perfect, broiled oysters: perfect, salmon salad: perfect and huge!, portobello grilled cheese: perfect, $2 beer list featuring... read more

We had a company function in the side room with a private bar and buffet. The food was very good. The atmosphere and setting was perfect for dinner and a business meeting. The staff was attentive and very accommodating to our needs. In this area I can not recommend this setting enough for a meeting or company party. We had... More

After arriving later than expected after a long and tiring day, we decided to eat at the closest place to where we were staying. This place exceeded any expectations we could have had. The staff was excellent, the food delicious (great variety also), and the prices were very reasonable.

This restaurant was close to our hotel. It was a bar and grill. Mostly bar. It was very nice on the inside. We went there for a meal. It took quiet a while for our meal to be prepared but it was worth the wait. Very good chicken fried steak and potatoes. Not a large variety on menu.

It was not clear where the entrance is, but once you find your way inside this restaurant is very nicely decorated with a fun, open décor. I had a crabcake burger which was very tasty, with a side of some sort of corn chowder which was also very good. Service was great, very friendly and attentive. I will definitely go... More

Stumbled across this place on our way home. Was a really nice sports bar restaurant. The drinks were a decent price and the food was good. My friend and I had corn chowder and we split a crab cake sandwich. The chowder was excellent but the crab cake wasn't anything special. My husband had a reuben sandwich and my other... More

We walked into a sports bar and enjoyed a quiet, leisurely evening with great food and service. We had the Crab, Artichoke and Spinach Dip served with pita chips. It was delish! I had a crab cake sandwich and my husband opted for shrimp. Both were extremely good and the servings were very generous. One never expects good wine in... More
