Reluctantly agreed to come here for a nice drink with some friends.* It has long been a mystery why we end up here so often, since no one in the group will admit to liking the place, but tonight, the plot thickened. It all started...More

Pleasant greeting and server but menu was strange for my taste. The choices seemed very constrained and not very filling. I see it as a nice bar, very open feeling at a table or at the bar, but don't go here with a healthy appetite....More

This is a beautiful restaurant in an old bank and worth going to just for the decor. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. The Happy Hour menu is very inexpensive and I had a hot pepper margarita that was delicious. The tacos were good...More

We came and propped up the bar for a few. My partner loved the beer selection. Atmosphere was great and the staff were very friendly.

Sonny’s – semi-Mexican, good drinks, interesting but limited menu. We didn’t stay, however, because with the limited menu, all of us wanted something they were out of. Had only the chips and salsa. Waitress was attentive and very nice

Excellent double cheeseburger. Great bacon. Delicious corn muffin. Nice ambience in the Old Port but service is slow and lacking.

We dined on an early Friday evening and were lucky to get right in. We were seated in the back dining room which was very warm and comfortable. It was quiet enough to hold a normal conversation, where as the front dining room seemed much...More

We enjoyed our quiet table in the back with a view of the park. The food was unusual, interesting and tasty. Portions tend to be small but rich and the ingredients are fresh. It's an easy walk to Merrill Auditorium, so you can park just...More
