“Great hole in the wall place with an edge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

Stopped in to have an adult beverage and appetizer one night, now a regular stop for my fiancee and myself when walking downtown. The staff is very attentive and know their menu inside out. Live entertainment is set up in corner of dining room every Thurs - Sat with unexpected drop ins joining the jam.

Specials include all you can eat wings on Tues, date night Weds is two steaks with two sides each for a really good price (may change so being vague) that doesn't break the wallet. We have yet to have a bad meal here. They have hot sandwiches, veggie apps and entries for those who won't eat meat and the above entrees have never been anything but wonderful for us.

As others have noted, from the road it is bricks and dark, but get past the initial appearance and enjoy a wonderful, relaxed meal and evening.

“Incredible seafood nachos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

Best seafood nachos I have ever had! I went there on a whim for lunch, I went back the next day with friends to introduce them to the seafood nachos. Try them.

“Way better than expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

We were given a recommendation to go to Hells Kitchen from the staff at the Marriott Waterside. We had lunch and were very pleasantly surprised. The steak tips appetizer was perfectly cooked and delicious. The Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo was also well done. The hand-cut french fries were piping hot and so good. Everyone was very pleased with the meals we ordered. The service was very attentive. Prices were very reasonable.

“Great wings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

I went there with a colleague who goes there regularly. It had an old-time bar feeling to it rather than a restaurant feel. When you walk in it doesn't seem very inviting - but once you get seated it's a very relaxed atmosphere. We only had wings but I have to say they were some of the better ones I've ever had. The staff was very friendly and I enjoyed going there.

“It was open.....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

Not sure what all of the fuss is about? Hell's Kitchen is your average bar in a touristy part of a waterfront town that is trying to be edgy. We ended up at HK because they were open and we were hungry/thirsty. The food & beer was average bar fare. The prices are a bit high but I wouldn't say the prices are out of line for the location. The service was fine. The music was loud and the place looked like they cleaned just enough to keep it functioning. The overall experience seemed a bit contrived.
They are trying very hard to prove they are edgy and a bit counter-culture.....we ALL get it;.....give it a rest.
