“great bar”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

good specials and a great friendly staff, the only problem is if you go early between 6pm and 8pm, don't use the juke box, they keep it turned down to low, they should provide music for the dinner crowd, and let you use the juke box after 9:00PM

“Sandbar”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

We had dinner with friends. Surprise was happy hour specials on a Friday night.
We had decent drinks and shared nachos at half price. We all stuck to sandwichs and were satisfied. I had the Jerk Chicken. Spicy. Good service. We were seated directly under a stereo speaker and asked to be moved or turn down speaker. Speaker was lowered immediately and kept our seats. We will give it another try. We were early 6 ish and the watiress told us that at 10pm it turns into a club, hence all the speakers around the place. Funky New Hope atmosphere. turquoise booths. good beer selection

“Wouldn't have dinner there again”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Tried this place for the first time because we had a Groupon. Server was really nice until she found out we had the coupon. First thing she said was that we should buy an additional appetizer or dessert and pointed to the sandwiches even though we were entitled to two dinners. Had the coconut shrimp for an appetizer which was good. Not sure if I would pay $12 for 5 medium shrimp though. We had the pork chop and crabcake dinners. The crabcakes were delicous but wasn't thrilled with the rice and black beans and fried plaintains. My husband didn't think the pork chop was anything special and didn't eat his sides either. If we had to pay full price, this dinner definitely wasn't worth it. We bought the molten cake dessert since our server made us feel guilty and it was good. Maybe we'll go back for drinks and burgers since the outside patio is nice but I wouldn't get dinner again.

“Nothing to warrant another trip”
Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

Went here using Groupon with a party of 4. Sunday evening, place had 4 tables taken. Service was good had the chicken empanadas and cheesesteak spring rolls as apps (empanadas could have been better). Entrees Fish & chips just ok, Southern Fried Chicken could have been a lot better & bouillabaisse bland would have been nice to have a side of bread served along with it though. desserts tres leches cake was good, passion fruit mango cheesecake was dry and the only fruit was a couple of strips cut up as decoration very misleading name. Over all not bad, just nothing great, it helped that we saved over 50% but most likely wouldn't go back.
