Eat Bertha's Mussels

but nothing else!

Lovely time at Bertha's - always fun and the mussels are really outstanding but I just wanted to post this tip for other visitors: make a lunch or supper of the mussels and skip the entrees.

We stopped in for the first time in several years and because it was dinner time we ordered entrees along with our mussels. Bad idea. The next time we go, we'll have the mussels as a snack with a beer or make a meal of a salad and some mussels. Our large party ordered several different entrees and while none were inedible, they were all lackluster. The shrimp was particularly bad.

So I don't care how touristy it is, Bertha's is great but stick to the house specialty!
