This place reminded me of some of the best restaurants in South Philly ... You probably wouldn't go in to eat if you judged it by it's exterior. But prepare for a great meal and excellent service!!! This place is always packed ... be sure to make reservations.
As indicated in prvious reviews, the basic menu was okay, but the "specials' were extensive and creative. My wife and I both ordered from the specials menu.
I had a great Manhattan Seafood Chowder for openers followed by a delicious bacon wrapped sirloin steak. The meat looked more like a giant filet, thick and juicy, and prepared medium rare, exactly as ordered. The grilled vegetables were very tasty as were the french fries.
My wife had a very tasty salad, followed by stuffed flounder and was likewise very satisfied with the main course and vegetables.
There was a very nice desset menu as well. I had a very tasty peach cobbler and my wife had a delicious (but quite rich) chocolate ice cream cake dish.
The restaurant was quite loud which made it a little difficult to hear. The bar is limited to a nice selection of wine and beer. No mixed drinks.
All in all, this was a great experience. Highly recommended.
