Summary: DO NOT MISS. Surprisingly excellent food—and nearly each dish packs a surprise. AND it’s relatively inexpensive for the strip. We went here twice. The first time we had everything that was our “A” list. The second time we went to our “B” list and found that nearly everything was still amazing. This is what Lagasse Stadium should be – but the food here is amazing, whereas the food at Lagasse is a universal disappointment.

Don’t miss:
*Bread pudding with toffee, caramel, delicious ice cream and Captain Crunch cereal
*Roast beef sliders with cheese, red onion, thousand island dressing - super delicious, totally better than the sum of the parts
*Turkey carvery - very good turkey, flavorful - a triumph of turkey. I mean, we only ordered Turkey because we were there on Thanksgiving day. But we'd seriously order it again.
*They have 6 sides from which to choose with all their carvery dishes. The horseradish sour cream was good, but the blue cheese fondue was just amazing. It seriously made me want to worship at the knee of the god of blue cheese. They also have a black truffle mayo, and they’re very generous with the truffle.
*Dirty Chips – potato chips with blue cheese dressing, scallion, bacon bits, fried chicken livers. These are really good. We wished we had more than just 2 people eating them…the order is huge. I think these would be better if they warmed up the chips. It’s a great idea in need of better execution. While these were good, they’d be better if they had more bacon bits anda better distribution of the sauce and scallions.
*Lobster slider - perfect. Great garlicky brown butter aioli. Lovely roll.

*Mac + cheese – note this was noticeably better on our 2nd visit (but obviously good enough the first time to reorder on the 2nd visit.)
*Seven delightful sins – these are 7 quarter-sized ice chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches, with 7 different flavors of ice cream. Lots of fun. Even though these are small, they came sliced in half so we could share.

*Respectable skinny fries
*Respectable pastrami sliders
*Fresh-popped popcorn (their version of a bread basket) – yummy, nice spices
*Grichebactom (grilled cheese bacon tomato) – with brie. Interesting. Very good, but not the best thing on the menu.

Skip it
*Todd English ketchup is kind of god-awful
*Chopped salad . It does have a nice mix of Mediterranean flavors, but still not “worthy.”
*Artisanal pretzels with cheese – pretzels need help
