“Hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

This restaurant needs a bigger sign. It is a gem tucked away in the lobby of a chain hotel. The chef is from an old popular restaurant (The Aviary) and has brought with her some good food like the great blackened steak sandwich and sticky chicken. I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a basic meal in a clean modest environment.

“Consistently Good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

We know what to expect when we dine at Saints on 2nd. The service is good and the food is very good. We have tried many things on the menu. Our favorites are the Sticky Chicken, (very popular dish - they make their own batter and sell it as well) Coco Chili shrimp, (same batter - I don't care for fried shrimp, but this is fantastic) blackened steak sandwich and the salads.

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Had breakfast, dinner and happy hour here. All were just average. Service was friendly but food and drinks were nothing special. The hospital cafeteria across the street was better.

“Always great food and a very nice atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Been to Saints On 2nd probably over 10 times. Always easy to park. Good service. Reasonable prices. And the food is always top notch. Usually order the blackened steak sandwich but there was a time when I wanted fish but knew I liked the blackened steak... It wasn't on the menu but I asked if I could get the fish... blackened. The chef very happily did it and then actually checked to see if it was okay after I got it. It was fantastic. He also remembers me every time I go there and offers to make it again.
