Carlene, Barry, Simon and Marc sampled starters beginning with feta comply, a cool plate of feta, tomatoes and avocado drizzled with basil olive oil. We had the “Devils on Horseback”, bacon wrapped dates with herbed cream cheese and served with a ginger soy dipping sauce. A delicious repast!
The shrimp salad Old Bay sliders, a fine chunky salad on fresh bun was a winner as were the crab sliders and crab cake with homemade tartar sauce.
We tasted a cream of crab soup and found it somewhat watery with just a pale taste. Off the standard menu this evening was a Crab Imperiale, an excellent rich dish – do try it if it is on your menu.
Other entrees included farmhouse chicken with caramelized shallots, plus sides…vegetarian lasagna topped with a creamy pesto sauce…beef brisket on roll with cheddar, mayo, onion and cherry peppers. Tasty side dishes included a fine potato salad and a rich mac and cheese.
Key lime cheesecake, pumpkin pie and a deep chocolate treat completed our tour.
