My friend had some sort of combo plate they offer with a soup, sandwich and dessert which he seemed to enjoy.My colleague and I sat at the bar, the service was professional and friendly. We were served by the woman who use... More

Visited Interim on Valentines night as guests of another couple; our first time there. We didn't realize the holidays menus were pre-fixe. The choices accommodated everyone at our table. It was very busy, but we were greeted promptly and given a very informative overview of the evenings selections. Two of us chose the wine pairing that were chosen by the... More

We went for Sunday brunch this weekend. The crab cakes were fantastic, big lumps of sweet crab and not a lot of binder. They made the crab the star of the dish, and the slightly spicy smoked tomato sauce was delicious. We had the Interim burger, it is a consistent winner. There are no fries anywhere in town that can... More

We stopped going last year because the food had become mediocre, as was the attitude of the management. On a whim, we went back last night. New chef, new management. New attitude! First, I mistakenly made my reservation for the wrong night, but there we were with a group of six. And I was freaking out, but the manager and... More

Interim is a nicely appointed restaurant and almost every table has a view of the cooking area. Upon entering there's a well stocked bar with seating and some high top tables along the wall. We were there to celebrate New Year's Eve with some friends. Interim offered a fixed price menu with three choices of appetizers and main courses and... More

We were at the Interim for a business dinner, to celebrate the retirement of a sales colleague. about 80 people were served very well, and I had a very good pasta dish, where most ate steaks and a red fish.

We were with a group of 10 in their private dining room. From my initial contact with the staff in making the reservation until leaving the restaurant at the end of the meal, the experience was exceptional. The food was delicious and the server was outstanding.

We wanted to celebrate a great accomplishment, and headed to Interim. Although we had no reservation, and the bar was packed with folks celebrating the weekend's arrival, we were greeted with open arms. Our waiter, Chuck, was well informed of the menu and took our weird humor to the next level. He was on top of his game!! After toasting... More

Last night we has dinner at Interim..we eat there frequently. They have a great little bar, and usually their food is VERY good. Their mac and cheese is excellant as an appietizer. Their burger, even though it is more of an upscale restaurant...is awesome. My wife and I had the baked chicken and rice last night. We were with another... More

Interim has been around a long time and is always great for entertaining business clients or for small dinners with family and friends. The establishment has an open kitchen concept and it's fun to watch your meal being prepared by the staff. Great variety on the menu from fancy food to great burgers, all presented in style. Staff is always... More
