I went to this place with my mom and my brother. Sure enough, that's about 2 people too many to get a table on a Friday night at nine. The hostess was as sweet as could be, anxiously monitoring her little notebook. Daniel, the chef/owner came outside and talked to us for awhile. He was a humble, simple guy who humored me by seeking my advice on how he could he improve on the fish-side of things. We crept around the bar, finally sat, and had an amazing meal, cheap bottle of wine, and plenty of conversation with the people around us. Next time, I'm going alone.

I went there early evening expecting to order a meatball sub to-go. I was greeted by a surly hipster who rudely informed me that they were not taking to-go orders because they had to serve the patrons eating in the restaurant first. This was a bullshit response and he knew it because he then proceeded to ramble off a number of other excuses including they did not think the sub would travel well. I was dismissed to the side and ignored by the host that seemed to be annoyed by my presence, so I walked across the street to my reliable joint, Spitzer's Corner , where I knew I'd be welcome with friendly host and consistently great food.
