  1. I've been there several times. Always enjoyable. The blackened chicken livers, under appetizers, are a definite must. They made me an offal convert, and my friends and I never fail to order them.

      Oh god, a HUGE agree. Those chicken livers are one of my favourite dishes at any TO restaurant.

    2. I went there recently and it was really nice, a little cold and a little bright and not amazing, but nice.

      1. Anything blackened is good by me. I had the catfish on my latest visit, back in December. A personal favourite.

        Also? The bourbon tasting menu. 'Nuff said.

        1. My wife and I love this place. They've been around for decades and are still packed most weekend nights, so they must be doing something right. It has a quirky decor, extremely friendly and sincere service, and pretty consistent food.

          The chicken livers are great appetizers, as are the hush puppies and the oysters that come with a selection of hot sauces (which they also bottle and sell). For mains, the blackened chicken and whatever fish is on the board is usually excellent. The lamb is also fantastic.

          They also have a prix fixe menu, which is a good deal but can be a lot of food if you're not a huge eater.

          1. do they still have that fortune teller in the front room?

              Yes... it's best to reserve them when you make dinner reservations, I think. Not sure if they are "on hand" at all times. There is some info on the web site, here:
