Adam S.8/25/11Two words: Chopped. Salad.
Shannon B.5/31/11MUST HAVE: Fig & Prosciutto Flatbread App. The perfect salty & sweet combo!
Jake S.8/3/13If you order the fish and chips, use the vinegar provided but skip the tartar sauce; it's just too mayonnaise-y. Also, be aware that the porch deck with the awesome views doesn't open until 4:00 PM.
