This place may have the best food in Lakewood EVER! Still, if you come here, don’t be in a hurry. There is a possibility that the food may take a while. In that slight possibility, order an easy appetizer to hold you over. They often have one bartender, one server, and one cook/bad ass Chef. It may even just be a bartender and a BAD ASS COOK!!! 🙂 Still, most of the time, everything, including service, is amazing, but you never know when an unexpected rush surprises these wonderful people.
Their specials are generally written on “the board.” I always like to order the most expensive thing on the board, especially if it is a steak or an odd meat of some kind (like kangaroo). It’s usually the best thing “not on the menu on the menu” that day, even though a lot of their regular items are pretty amazing. The board specials tend to run out early in the evening, so if you plan on getting their board special, show up early! You may see pictured a bay scallop gratin prosciutto with garlic, parmesan, and panko crust. It’s on the menu, and it ROCKS!!! The ravioli is on there, too, and I love it! Chewier than expected, but very satisfying.
As far as music goes, I think they finally did away with the old school jukebox and upgraded to the digital on-line version. If nothing is playing, be prepared to listen to awkward conversations you shouldn’t be listening to.
All in all, I love this hole-in-the-wall. It’s been around a long time and hope it stays forever. It’s totally broken in and has a history we all want to be a part of. I’ll put a link to their website and menu below in case anything changes. Please excuse the bad pics taken with my iphone as opposed to my awesome Ashton Kutcher camera that I usually use. It seems to grab too much attention when I’m out, so I just decided to whip out the phone on a few pictures this time.
Thanks for going out with me.
