Met my niece and her husband for dinner last night and they picked this place. They had been there before I had not and was quite skeptical. Much to my surprise…it’s a cool and good spot! It’s an old church turned into restaurant and bar, outdoor seats with a bar, live music, 2nd floor deck and additional bars and seating as well. Large brick oven for pizza and of course the entire (open) ceiling painted of old glory. Really cool space.
We got there 7:30 and there was a half hour wait, we sat at the outside bar for cocktails with a one man guitar playing singer, nice atmosphere. 30 mins later we were seated:
Apps: Parmesan rosemary wings, meatballs and coconut shrimp. The wings were baked and caked in Parmesan cheese, rosemary and a reduced balsamic drizzled on top. Large and meaty wings and the topping was excellent, scrapping the cheese off the plate like the side of a French onion soup, was very tasty. Meatballs much to my surprise was pretty darn good, I would have NEVER ordered this on my own but heck, they were very good for restaurant meatballs. The coconut shrimp were good, non-frozen served with a sweet dipping sauce.
2 short ribs, bacon wrapped meatloaf (mine) and salmon special. I don’t know what I was thinking ordering the meatloaf (the meatballs inspired me) but I’m glad I did! It was pretty dame good with smashed potatoes excellent as well and a fresh vegetables medley.
I tried the short ribs and they were very good and the salmon received high marks as well. The topper, their bread was excellent as well. I’ve got to be honest the place surprised the hell out of me and if I’m the area I wouldn’t think twice about going back.
