The food was good. It really had some unique favors. I had the salmon which had an excellent glaze. Not overpowering, just tasty. It came with dirty rice which was excellent. Just a little spicy. The dinner also came with corn fritters. Never had anything...More

First off, I am NOT an employee of this establishment. This place used to be Nick Anthes, a well-respected upscale restaurant in the North Hill area of Akron. It reopened this past May. I read the earlier 2 reviews and they are the 2 extremes....More
