The boyfriend and dinner last night at Sadies Seafood Pub located next to the S&W in Downtown Asheville. Upon arrival you are given a basket of fresh hush puppies served with homemade tartar and cocktail sauce. These we warm, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, both sauces were also fresh tasting and very good.
For entrees we had combination plates, boiled shrimp and scallops for me, fried oysters and cod for my boyfriend. We were slightly disapointed in the amount of food given, my plate only had 3 scallops and maybe 4 shrimp. However, for 8.50 served with a mound of fresh cole slaw and boiled new potatoes, neither of us left hungry. The shimp were quite good, but the scallops were rubbery. My boyfriends cod was also somewhat rubbery but his friend oysters were very very good.
Sadies service was very good. The staff was very attentive and friendly. They told us that they have been trying out some different things on the menu and working out the kinks. They noted they were in a major transition from Corner House becoming Sadies. At this point they are very limited on mixed drinks but hope be serving a full bar in the next week are so. They did serve some great draft beer and wine is available.
All and all I say we will be back. The food was good for the price, atmosphere was good as was service. Also I believe they donate part of their proceeds to Asheville Humane Society and that is something we can all feel great about!
