Yes, we know it’s a chain. But it’s a small chain and there are always some nice variations from city to city. This one’s biggest plus is the location, overlooking docks fronting the Halifax River. You can sit inside and watch the boats through the large glass windows or—in spring or fall—sit outside and smell the salt air. The Halifax River is part of the Intracoastal Waterway, separating the mainland from the beach, which is located on a barrier island across the way. The seafood is reliable (it’s part of the Landry’s Restaurants group) but our money is on the prime rib atherosclerosis special. There’s just a hint of spiciness along with that rich, full mouth feel you only get from prime meat. Put some extra butter on that baked potato, too.
