We ate here after doing the cliff walk and were hungry and thirsty when we arrived. The server was great, she recommended a local beer which was perfect so when she also recommended the tots we went with that suggestion too - what a good call. We went with the truffle tots and they hit the spot. She also brought... More

We ducked into this location for dinner, we had never been but heard good things. First impression was this place is tiny but, we were seated and the service was excellent, friendly and attentive. I had the venison burger...really great job on this...typically a very dry mean but, they delivered a pretty moist burger and truffle fries. Very good eats... More

The restaurant, up a flight from Bowen's Wharf's shops, has an interesting decor of exposed old wood, leaded glass dividers, salvaged materials and low lighting. The menu combined creative vegetarian and classic seafood and grille options. The staff was young, casual and friendly. The food was fresh, flavorful and creative. Restaurant Week offered us a great selection for an affordable... More

Really nice menu with lots of different choices. I had a fish fry (which was totally overpriced as is the rest of the area) and it was nice and crisp, not greasy at all. They used red cabbage for the coke slaw and it was really tasty. The people were all friendly. I would highly recommend.

We tried the famous tatter tot casseroles. one with biscuit and gravy - Good. And one with bacon wrapped - very good. Two people can share... More
