Inside they’ve done up the Fisherman’s Wharf theme all around the place. It’s a pretty non-descript interior after that. There’s a bar area and a stage as well – it sounds like they plan on having live music on a regular basis.
It turns out they just opened in late 2015 – and if it all seems a little familiar – there’s a reason for that! I was with my East-sider friend Kelly and said that it sort of reminded me of Pelican’s Reef on Beechmont. Once our server came over she explained that – it’s the same owner!
Kelly got the Grilled mahi mahi dinner ($14) 12oz mahi filet grilled & 2
sides. You can choose from plain –
blackened – Teriyaki pineapple and garlic butter. She liked the Mahi and her sides – the broccoli looked really good – and I’ll touch on the mac in a minute.
Other side options include fries, garlic bread, caesar salad, house salad, cole slaw, mac & cheese or onion rings.
They have a wide selection of appetizers including conch fritters – which are rare to come across in these parts! I had them once in the Virgin Islands and didn’t really care for them – but I know a lot of people like them.
“Trident” seafood broil – shrimp, crab cake
and scallops broiled in garlic butter and served with 2 sides – $19 and chose garlic bread and macaroni & cheese for my sides.
As for the Trident. The shrimp scampi was good and was not overcooked. The small scallops were my favorite – those can so easily get overcooked but they were perfect – a little “medium rare” if you can use that term with seafood. The only thing I didn’t love were the crab cakes – they were very loose – lots of crab – I just didn’t love the flavor and texture.
We weren’t going to get any dessert but the server told us about the cobbler and we tried it. It’s a homemade peach cobbler with ice cream. It was okay but my mom’s Peach Cobbler is way better. We did kill it though – so it couldn’t have been too bad. I would love to try their Carrot Cake!
