Don't bother going to Jorge the Crook's they have been out of business for several months. The restaurant that replaced them is Boodalu, which is shown in a separate review and get 4 stars in my book.

Though Jorge the Crook's closed four months ago, TripAdvisor still hasn't taken down their listing. The building has been rehabbed, and BoodaLu Steakhouse opened in this location June 26. The mantra is "Classic is back" and the focus is on steaks and seafood. Hope to...More

We ate there for a special occasion and found it too be good. Rather pricey so this is a place you go once in a while. Nice setting and pretty good service

Dinner near the riverfront provides a great atmosphere. Jorge the Crook is a consistently great value. Dan and his folks ensure your meal is worth the trip.

The food there has tanked. The chef is a bad fit for the place, she salts the food to mimic ocean water, soups are thick and gloppy, vegetables overcooked. Its a problem when you have a brow chef in a high end place.

A well rounded menu at good prices. Wine specials are well worth it. On good night try outside table overlooking the river
