We arrived for Saturday lunch and saw sadly that all the outdoor tables were taken. Since we were in a bit of a rush we decided to eat inside. The waittress was very friendly and able to answer all of our questions.

From the most popular appetizers, we decided to start with the shrimp and crawfish bruschetta which is served in lobster butter with artichokes and tomatoes over a Rosemary ciabatta crouton. The shrimp was crisp to the bite but when everything was compiled on the delicious bread it was lacking in flavor. Trying to scrub the plate w the bread didn’t really help. The crawfish had a really fishy flavor but I guess it’s its natural flavor.

My friend ordered the Mediterranean sandwich which has roasted red peppers, cucumber, spinach, tomato, avocado, alfalfa sprouts, red onion, provolone and Swiss cheese. This place definitely caters to the vegetarian clientele! The filling was good but the bread was not tasty. The alfalfa sprout was lacking too. The cheeses on the sandwich were good though. The side salad was made w old lettuce!

I ordered the blues burger since I was craving some red meat. This comes w blue cheese and blue cheese dressing. I decided to indulge and add bacon and get a side of potato chips. we only live once right? This place isn’t known for their hamburgers so I wasn’t expecting much. The bread was so big and dry and the mystery of all the side condiments that came out w my burger was instantly explained. The spicy mustard was great for dipping chips in but the blue cheese dressing was absolutely necessary for the burger.
