I will be having dinner there tomorrow night. Has anyone been there recently? Any recommendations?

  1. My girlfriend and I went there last Friday night for the first time. It was good, although not perfect -- but it's worth a visit.

    We started by sharing the New England clam chowder, which was quite possibly the best clam chowder either of us has ever had, and the romaine (a.k.a. Caesar) salad, which was also quite good. My girlfriend then had the grilled salmon, which she said had too much sauce. I had the panko-crusted catfish, which was too fried (too much batter compared to catfish) and came with too many (!) french fries. For dessert, we shared the warm chocolate cake (fine) and the gingerbread bundt cake (also good). In the future, I hope to try their macaroni and cheese, seafood gumbo, and fried chicken.

    The ambience is quite nice, upscale without being pretentious, and relaxing. We sat on the ground floor, which was slightly cramped, but the restaurant actually has three levels.

    Hope this helps,


    1. It's a very good restaurant. I went with a fairly large party, and everyone was pleased with his or her choice.

      I had the mushroom raviolis for appetizer, great marsala or cognac sauce. I had the salmon for main course adn wasn't disappointed, though it seemed from visula inspection of the plates around me that it wasn't the best pick.

      I guess the place is already famous for its clam chowder and pork chops.

      The service was perfect.
