Went to Sandy Hook last night with several friends for dinner and it was great. I had the Maui sandwich with homemade chips. My wife had the fish and chips. One of our friends had the prim rib and said it was the best.

Stopped in with friends for lunch, I had the seared ahi. It was good but not as good as some others I recently had. We had the loaded fries as well, pretty tasty!
