The pick 3 platter is the best. The deep fried chicken livers and mushrooms are the best I've had anywhere. The mushrooms are sliced, fresh , battered & deep fried. The potato skins are good too.

Like many I remember the Wharf from previous owners--it was a bar that you hit if you were in the area and turned 21. I went there recently and it has changed a lot due to the new owner. While still HARD to find it...More
