Grump's is an institution! Walk up to order and then get seated and wait for the food to be delivered to your table. The crab cakes are the stand-out dish, but you can't go wrong for breakfast here either.

Coal Fire

Reviewed By bmorris1929

We eat here regularly. The staff are friendly and the pizza and salads are consistently very good. It is better at the restaurant than driving it home. But they were right on time with our order and we didn't have to wait at all. We definitely recommend Coal Fire for great pizza!!

I'd probably visit this place again, but we had two burgers at our table and the meat was good quality, but overall the burgers just fell flat on taste. (Piggy back burger with pulled pork, and the bacon bleu burger). The poutine fries were good, and our vegetarian relatives both enjoyed the Sushiritto (sushi burrito).The sangria was good, and the 100 tap beers available were of all types. I had a Sarp Whistle Sour ale, and a Reckless Boondocks (one of their house beers). On various nights they had other happenings.... trivia one night, ramen noodle night (with specials on Sapparo), and other events, so I imagine it is a pretty fun place to go throughout the week. And it is kid-friendly, even with toddlers. Total bill with 4 adults food and drinks was about $115.

Blue Dolphin

Reviewed By JMEmden

This is one of my hometown favorites!This have something to offer everyone. The speciality is seafood with Hugh portions! Thursday is fish night. They have a large offering of different fish and a hue portion. They give you more fish that you could possible eat. And it is bargain priced at under $15.00. Wednesday’s is steak night with 7-8 different cuts of several meats including 4 loin lamb chops for under $15.00. It is Greek owned. They know how to give you a fantastic value!

Fat Boys Crab Shack

Reviewed By QuietP

Firstly I am aware that “lousy” (very poor or bad) is spelled without an “e”. I have chosen to spell it with an “e” to make a point: louse means contemptible or unpleasant person.I chose this spelling to express my feelings for the employees who attempted to “spoil or ruin” my dining experience at the restaurant.When we called to ask if there was a “wait time” (to be seated), we were told by the guy on the phone “about 15 minutes”. We arrived about 25 minutes later. We called again, just to see if the time had changed. He says, “ it’s gonna be an hour, maybe even two hours”. Apparently, he was trying to discourage us. Little did he know we were parking outside. We walk inside and there are several vacant tables. We didn’t appreciate his dishonesty, but we were really excited about trying east coast crabs so we grab a table and begin looking at the menu.We get in line to place our order. We’re informed , “we only have 2 pounds of crabs left and you have to buy a whole pound”What? It’s 7pm! You’re a “Crabhouse”! As much as we wanted to try the crabs, we were not gonna pay $65 for crabs that we have never tasted? What if they’re not good?We’re disappointed, but decided to try something else off the menu. I ordered a crab cake, fish n chips, crab balls hush puppies and a drink. The food arrived without delay. As she handed me my fish, I asked her for tartar sauce. Immediately, she shouldn’t “we’re out of tartar sauce”. I respond, I’m gonna have to request a refund for the fish. (I’m from Texas. I don’t eat fish without tartar sauce)Miraculously, she gives me two containers of tartar sauce and says, “these are the last two”. At this point, I’m asking myself, “are there any honest people working at this place?” Why do I ask this? Because I’m looking at a compact cooler sitting on the counter FULL of tartar sauce. I even asked the guy for another one.Anyway, the crab cake and crab balls were pretty good. The hush puppies were extremely mushy on the inside as if they were undercooked. The fish n chips were okay. The fountain drink was great! **Probably because it was “self-serve.**—Won’t be back to this area until later this year.—Won’t be back to Fat Boy’s Crab Shack, EVER.

I have mixed feelings on this one. Some of our food was great, some so-so. Some of the service was great, others not so much. Let me explain.Hostesses at the front of the house were a bit of a mess. One individual had her act together and if she had been working solo would have had everything under control. Her two co-workers were drama queens and couldn't handle the crowd or pressure. One could only complain very loudly and repeatedly that it was time for her break (they had only opened 2 hours ago and there were 6 parties in line with open tables!). The corn and crab chowder was fantastic! We both ordered the wagyu beef and egg burger (brunch menu). We were underwhelmed - it wasn't bad, just average and a tad dry. Food server forgot the side of spinach with one order which we had to ask our waiter for later. The spinach was great. The other burger came with fries which were awful - overcooked and then served luke warm at best. In hindsight, I think we should have opted for some of the other eggs benedict options on the brunch menu as they looked really good. I would go here again for brunch to try these other options and some of the other menu items.

I had the delicious stuffed flounder. There was a lot of crab meat and there were big chunks of crab in it. The sides were just ok. I could do without the sides.

Bonefish Grill

Reviewed By Scenic70291

Bonefish is a very acceptable & dependable, but not great, family-friendly seafood restaurant. Our family of foodies on a tight time schedule enjoyed the Trout, Fish Tacos, mixed Shrimp/ Scallops and even a 6-oz Sirloin Steak. The food was well prepared & presented with ample portions, but it is a chain and there is a certain amount of uniformity and blandness. The server was prompt & friendly, but is not responsible for actually bringing the food/drink to the table so the entrees were brought out before we had finished the salads and each time a server brought either food or drink they were asking who gets what? The waitress was clearly very busy, but did stop by to check on the table, but no one seems to be responsible for proving water.

Nautilus diner

Reviewed By Rosemarie K

Always a favorite of ours for breakfast/brunch, new items have been added to their extensive menu. We tried the Southwest and the Chorizo omelettes and enjoyed the heat the jalapeños gave the former and the sausage the latter. With salsa and sour cream on the side, both are worthy of repeat orders. Our server was very helpful in her recommendations and she returned several times refilling drinks and checking on our food. We’d been away and were glad to return to the Nautilus.

Allison's

Reviewed By karen0706

Thanks to TripAdvisor we discovered another excellent restaurant! Everything about Allison's is A+++. We enjoyed cocktails before dinner (Manhattan and a vanilla Dark & Stormy) and both were just what we needed for TGIF. The mushroom soup is delicious and filled with mushroom pieces in a thick puree. The bread and cornbread were yummy and we appreciate a restaurant that knows it's better to serve butter that you can easily spread instead of rock hard. Our limone chicken and lobster ravioli entrees were delicious. Our server Jessica was friendly and efficient and added to the enjoyment of our evening out. This was our first visit to Allison's and we look forward to returning!
