I live two blocks from Canton Square and have eaten at all but one restaurant there, which I've yet to try. Plug Ugly's is my favorite...especially for lunch on the weekends. I've never had anything I didn't like and their warm homemade potato chips are delish! I also really like the historic feel/charm. My only warning: If you're looking for a quiet (or even average noise level) place to eat, I recommend that you plan to finish up by 6 pm because it won't be long before the 20-something crowd starts pouring in for cocktails. Not only does it get really crowded, it gets so loud that you can't even hear yourself think, let alone the person you might be with.
