“Fantastic scallop dinner!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

We just enjoyed a fantastic scallop dinner at Congress Bar and Grill today. It was a special on the menu and was some of the tastiest and well prepared scallops that we have had. They were served with a homemade tarter sauce that was great, more of a dipping sauce than a thick tarter sauce that enchanted the fresh fish. A yummy coleslaw was served as well as French fries. Dinner was delicious and very reasonably priced at $17. I had read about the restaurant on trip advisor and it did not disappoint. We will definitely return again.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

Great local place with an outstanding menu. Try the hummus plate - it's a meal in itself. Salads are also delicious.

“Stopped for lunch here twice on our trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Deb makes great drinks. Hard to get a seat at the bar though. Salads are a whole meal, and you can't beat a great burger
