Market Street has a great atmosphere. Market Street has an Irish Pub style bar area with brick walls.. nice wooden bar . Many good beers on tap.. including seasonal ales, and usually a local beer from Evolution Brewing. Guiness, Bass, Sam Adams, among others. Not just the typical junk light beers most bars serve on draft, although they have them if you really want a Budweiser or Coors Light. Guiness draft is $5.50 per glass. Wine and mixed drinks are 7 dollars per.
The bar food is mostly above average in taste and quality, depending on what you order. The Crab Dip dissapointed me.. but the Jambalaya is worthwhile. The Chicken Wings are really good. Overall, the food is somewhat overpriced though. Find a menu before you decide to feed a large group here. Could get VERY expensive quickly.
All in all, Market Street is one of my favorite bars. However, bring a wad of cash if you intend on staying for a couple hours, especially if you plan on dining.
Overall, good, and I'd go there again. Crabcake was very good. The best I've had since growing up with them homemade in Baltimore. The Caesar salad portion (I got the Crabcake Caesar salad) I don't recommend. It was a bit oily and had little taste. My partner got the two crabcake dinner and a Caesar side salad, also thought the Caesar was tasteless. Again crabcakes were very good, he love the smashed potatoes, while I thought they were just good. The snowpeas (daily vegetable) were outstanding. Bread that came with the meal was light, airy, a crispy exterior, excellent. They give you olive and garlic olive oils, and red wine and balsalmic vinegar to play with the bread instead of butter. Interesting, and good, but a bit of butter with that bread would have been heavenly.
The staff was good but slightly crowding. There were very few customers (Sunday night) and I think this would not have been a problem had there been more people. They said you usually need reservations Wednesday through Saturday.
The place looks dumpish from some angles during the day, but decor from the parking lot side was very charming. Inside was also nice, but the lighting took some getting used to, a bit dim.
Prices were a little high, but reasonable for the crabcake dinner. The Caesar crabcake dinner was very light on the salad, about the same as what was received as a side salad.
This place is absolutely wonderful. Great Bar with a laid back atmosphere and great happy hour specails. I have not once gotten a bad meal here. I love all the different ways they find to prepare Tuna, my favorite. The service is also a plus. Quiet and a perfect spot for a romantic dinner with a boasting wine menu.
The food is above average and outdoor dining on the water is a plus. Don't be surprised if a wild duck waddles right up to your table for a handout or a large Crane lands in the water within easy view of your table. The place has a cheerful atmosphere - food is good - prices are above average but not ridiculous.
If you don't appreciate smoke (This goes for smokers as well), stay off the floating dock. The soot and odor pouring off those luau torches and wafting through the seating area are extremely obnoxious.
This place has gone upscale since it was a sandwich shop and college dive. The food is great - nice place to take your significant other. I also like the wi-fi service, which is key for a good power lunch.
