My wife and I tried out this restaurant because we had a groupon. My initial impressions from our waitress were very good, as she immediately gave us a very detailed description about their drink specials and food specials. I was a little confused by the menu, as it dedicated a section to Italian food (as if they were half-heartedly trying to compete with the italian restaurant 3 doors down). I wouldn't expect that from an "American Eatery". As described below, some of the dishes were fresh and great, others were lack luster and seemed to be frozen. They should tighten up their menu and focus on serving fresh food.
We started with the calamari salad. The peppers, greens, and dressing were very good. The calamari seemed like it was frozen, as the pieces seemed too uniform in size and the breading was very dense and uniform - in fact none of it had fallen off. This appetizer was a great value. It would have been excellent if the calamari was fresh (or fresher) with a better breading.
My wife had the crab cakes. They were just your average (or below average) crab cakes with tons of breading, not a lot of crab meat. Something I again assumed was frozen,
I had the scallops. The scallops were excellent. They had a great sear and were perfectly cooked (I find that many places over cook them, as they should not be piping hot in the center - no more than a warm center). The sides were decent.
