    I went a couple weeks ago and had scallops, pork chop, and cod--all great. For dessert, apple crisp was good, if basic.

      the snapper and the brussel sprouts. Also for dessert, the rasperry donuts-simple and delicious!

        The meatball sliders are an absolute must.

        I've gotten the pork chop the last three times and continue to be delighted by it. Their whole fish is usually pretty good, too. Not a fan of the crispy chicken. I hear the steak is also excellent, but haven't tried it myself.

        I actually found the raspberry beignets to be just average, but the heaping portion of nutella provided for dipping makes them worthwhile.

              they were taking resies for 2 before (last summer)

              the sliders were touch dry for me but the pork chop and cod - delicious

                They've always taken reservations for 2 as far as I know (I went last June). They're now also accepting reservations on Opentable.

                definitly get the sliders to stat with. for an extra three$ they will hook you up with 4 instead of 3. i ate the pork chops, really good. very salty. it's all about the sliders

                  Sliders a must, I got the Italian wedding soup which on a very cold day hit the spot.

                  Pork Chop also a must, and then I got a fish dish, can't remember but think it was sea bass. It was good with a fava bean side that I enjoyed but it wasn't better than the signature dishes.
